Our Mission

Our mission is to bring people together in a group fitness environment; providing a positive outlook and approach towards fitness and overall health.  Being FIT physically, mentally, socially and spiritually, helps us to be better equipped on handling daily tasks, with a positive sense of well being, allowing us to reach out to others, so that we are able to glorify God in all that we do.

The Experience

The Fit For Life class schedule offers various exercises, focusing on key components, for total body conditioning. Our cardio HIT classes, offer a higher level of heart pumping, fun, energetic, yet modified if needed program, for those looking for that extra boost!

If you are new to fitness or want a challenge, then FFLM is for you!!  You will find that we laugh a lot, we work out a lot, and we pray a lot!!  This is not your typical gym; we are a Christian Group fitness exercise and wellness program, designed specifically for your needs. At the end of each class, we leave with Spiritual strengthening, a short devotion, scripture and prayer.

We work on cardio, muscular strength, agility, breathing, coordination, stretching, flexibility, fall prevention, balance, range of motion, memory and spiritual strengthening.

Over the years, Joyce has had the privilege of being involved with other gyms locally, as a member. After receiving her certifications, she turned her focus on teaching others to stay STRONG with Silver Sneakers. During that time she was able to start FFLM’s, as a total Group Fitness Community, a NO MACHINES JUST YOU program.

Joyce felt the need for a program that focuses on the the Total Body Wellness, not just the physical part of getting FIT. Therefore FFLM was created, where we get FIT physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. She wanted people to feel valued and worthy to be a part of a program that truly does care about their wellness. FFLM has given Joyce the opportunity to work with others in this community, where she absolutely LOVES her JOB!

“You have to have the heart for it. You’re not just showing them an exercise, you’re there to work with them and give them your everything to improve their lives. It’s extremely rewarding to see the true impact your work has on someone’s life.”

“For I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me STRENGTH.” – Philippians 4:13

Your Fit for Life Ministries has been a blessing in my life.  You are an inspiration to be the best I can be spiritually, mentally and physically.  The three mornings each week I come to class has shown me how to improve myself and my lifestyle. Many thanks for this blessing.

I may be repeating myself, but I cant thank God enough for putting you in my life.  You gave me hope when I had none and gently showed me that I could make a difference with how I feel physically and emotionally.  You have the gift of making everyone feel that they matter.  Thank you.

I met you only a little over a year ago, but you and your Fit for Life Ministry have really made an enormous difference in my life. I had been struggling for years, watching my weight creeping up.  I tried eating correctly, but that wasn’t working.  I hated the thought of exercising, but know I was going to have to bite the bullet and find a program for women only.  That is when Judy mentioned your ministry to me.  The rest is history!

Since I joined our group, I have lost 30 + pounds, but I have gained the friendships of some wonderful women, and grown in my faith.
I had a doctors appointment, the doctor was very pleased with my weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.  He told me to keep doing what I’ve been doing as it is working!!  You are an inspiration and role model to all of us.  Thank you for you and your ministry.  You have made a difference!

Fit For Life has been a blessing to me in many ways.  My first goal was to ride my bike to class.  Little did I know I could achieve that goal quicker than I thought, because my strength and determination came quicker than I thought.  My second goal is to continue to attend…need to work on that one.

Ive been blessed by your ministry through your physical workout regime as well as your ministerial guidance.  Your prayers often, maybe always ask for strength.. God hears you and so do we as we feel our bodies nourished in His presence.

I pray that God will continue to bless you with many more years of health and happiness.  I also pray that I will continue to be a willing participant in your Fit For Life Ministry.

A person with a strong faith, who is willing to share her faith with all
A person devoted to keeping a healthy body and teaching us all that we can also have a healthy body.
A person with a heart willing to listen and give comfort
A person of compassion.

I have known Joyce for such a short time, but in that time I have witnessed her sharing her faith and belief in every person to be the best they can be. She is always there with us and encourages us along our way of becoming a stronger and healthy person. You are the best.
