I am honored to write this letter on behalf of Joe Fish of J. Fish Fitness. Let me just get to the point… Joe Fish is FABULOUS! Hire him…he is a hit with the seniors and the staff!
Here is some background information as to why we added Joe Fish Fitness to our extensive exercise programming. After a chance encounter with Joe Fish at the DCU Elder Service Fair, my co-workers joined a Joe Fish class. We then brought Joe in for a trial class and were able to entice seniors to try his class.
Now Joe is here every Tuesday with an attendance of close to 40 pp. each class.
Joe’s current role at the Worcester Senior Center is writing safe 1 hour exercise programs and leading group exercise classes. He instructs participants on balance and fall prevention. Joe has an in-depth understanding of exercise and the functional training needs of older adults
Joe Fish Fitness will be a welcome addition to your organizations exercise programs and will keep your seniors in tiptop shape!

rearranging their schedules so as not to miss him. As the Community Relations
Director for Whitney Place, I can honestly say that, when touring our campus, prospective

THE BRIARWOOD COMMUNITY
It is without hesitation that I
recommend Joe Fish as Fitness Instructor for any organization looking for a
skilled and compassionate fitness expert. When Joe came to Briarwood he
literally needed no training. He quickly gained the approval and
confidence of his class, comprised mostly of 80-something seniors.
Joe is responsible for writing safe
exercise programs and leading group exercise classes for both the Independent
and Assisted Living residents. He instructs both the Independent and
Assisted Living residents on the safe use of equipment and makes sure
that the equipment is in good working condition.
Joe has in-depth understanding of
exercise and the functional training needs of older adults. All I can say is
that the residents and staff think the world of Joe as a person, a skilled
instructor, and a valued addition to our Fitness Staff.
