Joey works at King Kullen since 1994. His fitness journey started in 2013 when he took his first Zumba class with his friend and coach Oscar Gonzalez. In 2015 he started taking TRIBE with Rebeca and Oscar at the Southampton Gym and realized that this was going to be his new lifestyle.
Joey joined our Carpe Diem Fitness family as soon as we opened (in 2020) helping with anything needed. From cleaning the studio, greeting clients, set up equipment and of course taking the sessions 😊. He loves the atmosphere, the coaches and the clients – is his home away from home.
