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!
