Joyfull Fitness is owned and operated by Simeon Darwick, LMT, offering massage therapy, health coaching, and laughter coaching. But what Darwick really wants you to know about his philosophy and company is that it is based on joy, levity, and gratitude “as a means for transformation and a way to create a ripple of wellness that inspires others.”

In addition to being a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT), Darwick holds a RYT 500 certificate for 500 hours in yoga teacher training programs registered with Yoga Alliance. He is also a Certified Holistic Health Counselor (CHHC); and Certified Laughter Yoga Teacher (CLYT).

“At Joyful Fitness, we focus on laughter, massage, yoga, and herbs as the gateway into mental, emotional, spiritual and physical well-being,” says Darwick, whose commitment to well-being goes beyond the body. “We also focus on environmentalism,” he says, “addressing our personal environment first, and then taking action to repair our external environment and community.”

Plans for Joyfull Fitness in 2016 include a weekly Laughter Club that is based on the philosophy of “living in the wow,” and a massage practice focused on athletes, yogis, and movement lovers; “Release and Recharge,” a collaborative retreat with Conscious Strategies to be held in Costa Rica from December 24 – January 3; and a monthly laughter series called “Laughing Through the Winter Blues” that will begin in mid-January and continue through March. Look for wellness promotional packages for individuals, groups, and nonprofit businesses, and a two-day laughter yoga training in March.
