Owner | Trainer
Mindy Boyd, founder and owner of Loyalty Fitness, has been passionate about fitness and nutrition her entire life. She began weight training early on and found she loved it. Working in the mortgage banking industry for many years demanded long hours in the office, but she always made time for regular weight training sessions at the gym at 5:00 am before her work day started. This lifestyle was contagious and soon she had fellow co-workers joining her at the gym before work.
In 2004, Mindy decided to leave her hometown in MI and make the move to the warm weather and outdoor lifestyle of San Diego, CA. The 2008 fiscal crisis happened, which was a blessing in disguise, as it prompted Mindy to say goodbye to the mortgage industry and to look around for another career where she could pursue her passion for fitness. She discovered The Perfect Workout, a super slow strength training company, and began working there as a Facility Manager and personal trainer. She was quickly promoted to Regional Manager for the Southern CA Region and was fortunate enough to be mentored by the founder of The Perfect Workout, Matt Hedman, recognized as a national expert in super slow strength training. Among other accomplishments, Mindy was instrumental in expanding TPW’s super slow strength training certification program and over the past 10 years she has certified hundreds of trainers. In 2015 she assisted in the expansion of TPW to the East Coast and was then named Regional Manager of the Northeast region.
Following the company’s decision to transfer its resources to other areas of the country, and because of her commitment to the power of super slow training, Mindy decided to make another leap and start her own company in Syosset, NY and Greenwich, CT. She named her company Loyalty Fitness in honor of the many clients who have enthusiastically supported her and for her loyalty to them. Mindy is excited and energized by this venture to help people live healthier happier lives.
Jean was born with a passion for sports, fitness and an active lifestyle which has only increased with each passing decade! Along the way, she has played pretty much every sport and embraced every exercise craze to come down the pike ~ running more races, logging more miles and lifting more weight than she cares to think about!
Born and raised outside of Baltimore, Jean attended law school in Washington, D.C. and eventually settled there with her husband to practice litigation. After 15 years, she downshifted her legal career to focus on raising their daughters, still making sure she found time to run, swim, bike, practice yoga, go to boot camp and strength train at the gym. In 2008, she and her family moved to Westchester and Jean became a certified personal trainer so she could train people in her home gym while keeping an eye on her high schoolers. This career proved to be the ideal way to share her extensive knowledge and experience in the field of exercise, not to mention her enthusiasm, with others and she has enjoyed working with many clients of all ages and levels of fitness, from teenagers to octogenarians and everyone in between.
But even though she thought she had tried everything, Jean was blown away after her first 20 minute super slow weight training workout ~ it was hands down more efficient and effective than all those classes, machines, cardio equipment or anything she’d experienced. Not only does it produce superior results in less time, it reduces the physical and mental fatigue, not to mention the wear and tear on the body brought about by endless hours in the gym. And that’s just as true if you’ve NEVER worked out ~ it’s the perfect fit for literally everyone, man or woman and regardless of your age and physical condition. Jean is excited to be embarking on this newest phase of her fitness journey at Loyalty Fitness and is looking forward to helping her clients get stronger and healthier!

Samantha was born and raised in Buffalo, NY. Always active and athletic growing up, she ran track, played soccer and swam among other sports. After high school, she attended college where she enrolled in ROTC, which led to a decision to enlist in the US Army. Samantha served in the military for eight years, ultimately achieving the rank of Sergeant.

Erica grew up in Tuckahoe, graduated from Tuckahoe HS and for the last 12 years has been the office manager of a busy company. As a child, she loved to read and was never much for sports, which caused her to gain weight during her teenage years. Even though diabetes ran in her family, she never thought much about it until a wakeup call in 2019 jolted her into action when her father was diagnosed with the disease. She already had an aunt who was quite ill and was afraid that the sedentary life imposed by COVID would cause her to gain more weight and further compromise her health as she was seeing happen to her family.
She immediately started a walking program, beginning with one mile, until she was up to seven miles at a stretch! Given the time all this walking was taking she thought she would try picking up the pace and begin running, which much to her surprise and delight, she loved! Soon she was up to regular four mile runs and decided to add strength training to her routine to maintain and build muscle while she was losing weight. Once again, a whole new world opened up to Erica ~ she found she enjoyed going to the gym and getting stronger, and the more she did it, the more she liked it! She then teamed up with her sister, who was also trying to build muscle and they continue to motivate and encourage each other. Along the way, Erica began to educate herself about nutrition and healthy eating. She read nutrition labels, paid attention to the quality and quantity of her food and replaced junk food with healthier options.
As a result of all these lifestyle changes, Erica has lost 70 POUNDS to date!! Needless to say, she feels like a whole new person, and has discovered a passion for healthy eating and exercise that she is eager to share with others. Erica loves coaching and motivating her clients at Loyalty Fitness to reach their fitness goals and learn to love fitness as much as she does!
