Welcome to the Fit for Joy wellness celebration!

How about gathering to exercise, dance, drink and eat healthy foods, engage in meaningful conversations and practice a few minutes of meditation?

 This is what we do.

We revive the true meaning of health.

Fit for Joy creates the space for the practice of fitness, truthfulness, wellbeing, mindfulness, joy, and everything else that is in alignment with our hearts. 



Fit for Joy founder and author

It doesn't matter what size you are, we are all born for happiness!

Happiness and serenity are linked to the present moment, which requires fully appreciating what is happening now, within and in our environment. Nevertheless, many of us do not achieve this state because we dwell in the past or become preoccupied with living for a “better” future. When we project or stake our happiness on the hypothetical achievement of a future circumstance, we sabotage our ability to be happy in the present, and reinforce a self-destructive mindset that will likely persist into the magical “future” we are hoping for. To release ourselves from this trap, we must shift our perspective toward a spiritual reality that can transform pain into joy.

After investing more twenty years in fitness, as an enthusiast, personal trainer, and competitor, Valeria finally realized that true health comes from knowing the depths of our own hearts and the nature of life. With this knowledge, her external searches for happiness and peace ended and a joyful celebration began.
