"In the spring of 2006, I had the opportunity to have Joyce work with the team I coached...the University of San Francisco Volleyball Team. Joyce put together a boot camp type atmosphere for the athletes. I believe for many of them it was some of the hardest work they had ever done and yet because of Joyce’s positive attitude and great training regimen it was a huge success. The players on our team loved working with Joyce and embraced her style. On a personal level I was so impressed with Joyce's work ethic and the way she empowered the young women to be strong and take pride in their actions. I am a coach who really likes to provide my student-athletes with many different experiences. This was one of the best and most positive things I have done with my teams. Joyce is amazing!

"I believe it is an injustice to call your program just "physical conditioning". What those who are outside cannot see, is that your program has a much broader reach and it fits in perfectly with our philosophy. Your program provides Physical, Technical, and Psychological conditioning to our girls. One day, we should sit down to go over the features of your program and how it directly relates to what the girls are being exposed to during a soccer game. If you really think,
your work (like I said before), has a greater impact than just physical conditioning.
I hope this helps you in promoting your excellent program to other teams/clubs that can not get past the idea that only developing muscles is enough.
If anyone has any doubts, just look at the tapes from 1 year ago and compare to what we see today. It is just UNBELIVABLE!
Thank you again for everything you have done for our team."

“I am the assistant coach for the U-11 '97 Ahwatukee Flames girls soccer team. The Flames have really come together as a team this year, even though they have been together for about 4 years now. I believe that a lot of the team bonding is related directly to your program. You challenged the girls to some tasks I know the parents couldn't do, including the tire pull, piggy back rides across the field, and team work games. At the same time teaching the girls to be honest and trustworthy with themselves and their team mates. The Flames have been in better shape this season with your program and I believe that has helped us win two tournaments and come in second in another. You have been wonderful to invite the girls into your home when the fields were flooded. That to me shows that you really care! Thank you for all that you have done.” -- Jay Turk ,Vice-President, RAL Consulting, Inc.
“I think Joyce Stevens is a great influence on our team. Not only does she help build our muscles, but she helps build our minds, our hearts, and our passion for the game. As a player on The Dynamite, I benefit from her training greatly. She teaches us so much about healthy choices and what to do in case of an injury. Without her I know I wouldn't be as strong as I am now. She is so dedicated to teaching others that she offers us her house as an alternative to the herd fields of Pecos. At the end of her training sessions, Joyce always has advice to make our team stronger; not as individuals, but as a whole. And that’s really what we need. I am glad we have such a strong motivator like Joyce on our side. With her we can defeat any opponent that we face. She is our 'secret weapon.' Thanks!", -- Allie W., Phoenix, AZ
“Joyce has trained a number of our children (both our sons and our daughter) and we have been very impressed with not only her technical approach to training but also to the way she tailors her training to both the gender and age of the group. In addition, we have an above average active family and Joyce has taken time to assist us with nutritional issues that we asked her about including mailing information to us so that we could read the information ourselves….” -- Joe & Connie G., Phoenix, AZ
“I asked [my son] and he had a few positive things to say..... he did comment on noticing an increase in strength and he enjoyed the "team bonding" activities that you implemented in the "game" scenario... -- Claudia F., Phoenix, AZ
“I truly believe that what you do is making me stronger. You are my motivation.
Thank you so much for doing what you do.” -- Autumn T., U-17 Ahwatukee White, Phoenix, AZ
“Throughout my soccer career, Joyce Stevens has encouraged, challenged, and committed to me and my team. Through a variety of exercises, both physical training and teambuilding, Joyce has collectively made my team stronger and cohesive on and off the field. She herself is a role model, hero, and supporter of us all and we commend her. Thank you Joyce!” -- Ellen P., Ahwatukee White, Phoenix, AZ
“Hi Joyce. I always liked going to conditioning with you on Monday night. My favorite part was the rubber band exercise. You rock!” -- Tara G., U-11 Ahwatukee Flames, Phoenix, AZ
“Joyce was so fun to have as a trainer. She made me much faster and stronger as a player. And she taught us to have better teamwork than we had before. I learned a lot of cool and very helpful training activities that helped me and the team. Overall Joyce is a great and wonderful trainer. I would absolutely, positively, definitely WANT Joyce to train us again next year!!" -- Alicia D., U11 Ahwatukee White - Flames, Phoenix, AZ
“Joyce has been an inspiration to me for years. I have trained with several different trainers throughout the years but Joyce is by far the best. Her workouts are simple, short and effective. There is always a level to move up if you need to push or move down if you are just starting out. Joyce makes sure you are aware of what your body is saying whether it is telling you to push harder or to slow down. Even when training without Joyce, when I am ready to quit, or just not pushing my hardest, I will hear Joyce’s voice in my head telling me to push harder and amazingly, I do.
Recently, due to Joyce’s encouragement, my daughter started playing soccer again after a two-year hiatus. Along with regular practices, Joyce has been training the team with strength training workouts. My daughter, who has never liked working out, comes home excited and eager to share every move during the session. Joyce also intermingles in the workouts nutritional advice. I can say that I have never seen my daughter happier and I attribute so much of this to her new ambitions of health and nutrition.” -- April S., Phoenix, AZ
"Just wanted to let you know that class yesterday was awesome! I needed another boost! I felt like my body was in idle mode. I'm sooo sore today and I know for us that's a great feeling. Ever since I started the class I could see a notable change in my body. I'm a lot stronger than I ever was. As you know as we get older it's harder to stay in shape, but I have managed to stay fit just with taking your class twice a week, and doing some crunches, etc. at night before going to bed. We are going to Hawaii for vacation in October and it's my goal to get the rest of these inches off. Thanks so much for being such a great instructor!!! Forever your humble student (HA! HA!)" -- Deahna, Phoenix, AZ
"I wanted all the benefits of exercise without actually having to workout. As a busy mom of three kids, when the day got too hectic, the first thing I would skip was my workout. Then, Joyce turned me on to eight minute workouts. I tried it and lost eight pounds in only eight weeks! It was easy. I could always find eight minutes in my day for myself. I plan on continuing to workout this way and will never go back to long boring workouts again." -- Jennifer, Calumet, MI
"Working with Joyce has helped me finally see positive results in not only numbers on the scale but also my physical appearance. After years of working out with no change in weight, in just a little over two months of following the nutrition and exercise programs Joyce suggested, I have dropped 20 pounds, my clothes fit better, and I am in maybe the best shape of my life. Joyce is always encouraging and is always willing to suggest new exercises to help keep the workout interesting. I am glad I decided to work with Joyce in obtaining my fitness goals because it has made a huge difference for me." -- MB, Phoenix, AZ
"I started working out with Joyce Stevens two years ago. I was looking for a routine to dump my gym membership and obtain REAL results. After meeting Joyce, I knew she would give me what I wanted. In addition to leading a healthier lifestyle, I have gained all-over body strength, toning, self-confidence and a true friendship with Joyce. Her background enables her to give it to me straight and push me as far as I can even when I am ready to give up! I recommend Joyce to anyone regardless of their fitness goals." -- Karen, Phoenix, AZ
