The Fit For Joy website and blog are supported by the generosity of those who understand the value and the need of a healthier and more loving world. For that, we must begin by changing the relationship we have with our bodies and minds. We must let the heart guide our next thoughts, actions, words, intentions and choices.

To find peace is the reason we exist.

 

THE  FIT FOR JOY FAMILY!

LAURA KENNEY - editor. A wonderful, experienced and caring editor. She has been working with me for a while now, from getting the book proposal ready to editing the full manuscript. What would I do without Laura's loyalty, faith and passionate spirit?!!!  She is based in New England.

 

ANN PROCACCI - Artist - Story Illustrator. A marvelous painter I met in Astoria Park on a sunny afternoon in August of 2016 while jogging. She was sketching a beautiful view of the bridge, which was surrounded by tree branches. They created a window-like image for the sunlight to come through and touch nature: the concrete, the vegetation and the both of us!  She is based in New York.

 

XAVIER SABIDO - D3 Architect For Fitness Center Project. The center came to life through his amazing - "hyperrealistic" work! He is one of the most talented, creative and dedicated person I know. Xavier is based in the Philippines. 

 

EDMUND KUUYA - Video and Photos for Book Campaign. He is the creator behind each scene and most photos for the Book Campaign. His soulful, creative and determined personality helped produce great visual art in to get the message out to as many hearts as possible. 

KEVIN FORDE - Book Cover, Logo. He is a kind, creative and joyfully committed to do the best work possible. He was there for me when I most needed his dedication and patience. He is based in New York.
