The Joyefit Institute


Johnny Oye, Author and Certified Lifestyle Fitness Coach

Welcome and “Thank You” for visiting

I’m Johnny Oye, owner and founder of the Joyefit Institute and creator of the Joyefit Fusion ™ exercise program.  Joyefit Fusion ™  is a unique combination of physical, mental & spirit-centered exercises integrated into a seamless regimen sure to benefit everyone who recognizes there’s room to improve in one, two, or even all three of these core life areas.

First, let me share a bit about myself. My thirty-year career in the fitness & wellness industry began as a personal trainer at the New Orleans Athletic Club, the city’s premier fitness center, and my clients included many of the city’s most notable leaders in government and industry. Later, I recognized I had more to offer and became certified as a lifestyle fitness coach. Since the very first day working with a client, one thing has never changed  – my passion for my clients’ success.

Joyefit Fusion ™ is the culmination of the knowledge, experience and insight I gained from working with clients from all walks of life,  hour-after-hour, day-after-day, year-after-year. I know it will work for you!

My clients span the gamut from competitive bodybuilders all the way to recent or recovering stroke victims. All have benefitted from the Joyefit Fusion ™  program. We can work together to reach your goals either in-person, through one-on-one or in group sessions, or we can work remotely through weekly phone-based coaching session and brief daily text exchanges. So contact me today and let’s work together to meet your goals. Regardless of your location, busy schedule, fitness level, or even health issues, I’m confident you’ll benefit from my 30 years of experience, knowledge and passion for improving the lives of my clients.

Don’t live in Tampa Bay? Don’t think remote life coaching is for you? You can still benefit from Joyefit Fusion ™. by purchasing my best selling book – MonkeyBrain.


Early on I began to see undeniable patterns in some of my clients, family and friends. A pattern of negative thinking and emotional imbalance triggered by stress. Upon reflection, I also noticed this pattern in my self .

My background in physiology did not prepare me for these psychological challenges, so I began to research  the latest data and research on brain science, specifically positive psychology and neuroscience. What I discovered and learned was not only surprising but life changing. My questions were: Why do most of us tend to relive memories of fear, pain and drama more often than those of love,peace and joy? And why does the brain recall bad memories without our consent? Finally I asked the biggest question of all; can we change this way of thinking? I was inspired to share my discoveries with as many people as would listen. What resulted is my first book, “MonkeyBrain”, create emotional balance, physical health and spiritual awareness, published by Balboa Press a division of Hay House Publishing. MonkeyBrain shares of wealth of information on brain function, brain chemistry, stress, exercise & nutrition, vitamins and natural supplements as well as surprising and convincing data  on the positive health benefits of spiritual practices. In addition, I share a proven template and plan of action  for creating positive changes in all areas: mentally, physically and/or spiritually. It includes worthy projects, exercises and techniques designed to assist you in reaching your personal goals. Finally, MonkeyBrain provides a blank journal to log your goals, participation and results. It is a twenty-one day challenge and I encourage your commitment and participation for just 3 three weeks, 21 days. Change requires time and effort but the rewards will be immensely gratifying. Good luck and congratulations on taking the important steps to changing your life in all ways. I welcome any questions or advise regarding topics shared in MonkeyBrain. Join the conversation, on the MonkeyBrain Fix BLOG. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

    Imagine this, waking up in your own private estate to the sounds of surf and birds chirping; you are surrounded by lush tropical jungle and panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean. You can see Parrots and toucans from a distance as you are watching mono titi monkeys swinging by from limb to limb foraging the trees for fruit and seeds.  You are nestled in one of the most protected rainforest in the world. You can smell the organic coffee and healthy breakfast that you will enjoy while surrounded by this amazing beauty. The nutrients fuel your body and mind for the morning Yoga/Pilates session that stretches and strengthens your body and relaxes your mind.   Feel the muscles in your body relax and contract, as your mind is free of all worries.

    Then imagine, you are on the first of several adventures; feel the challenge and power of the river as you and others are white water rafting, feel the sense of achievement and joy. Or imagine the way that it feels as you Zip Line through the rainforest from platform to platform while embracing mother nature all around you.  Feel the ADRENALINE RUSH through your body! Then returning to your private suite to the magic of healing hands, waiting to rub and stretch the stress from your body. Imagine the  aroma of herbs and spices from the healthy meal that your private chef is preparing for you. Using local, organic natural foods. And then enjoying your delicious meal while watching the sunset in to the Pacific Ocean. Just Imagine… A one of a kind retreat that is beyond the destination!

    What a way to refresh and energize the soul! My trip to Costa Rica with Johnny and the group was unforgettable.  From the spectacular views to the exhilarating adventures… I had a blast from the moment that I stepped off of the plane.  The estate and service were the same if not better than any five star hotel, I can’t wait to go back next year!T. Arranaga 2007

    I have gained life long friends with the group that I shared the experience with and they feel like family.  It was great fun and more importantly positive conversation.  It was a perfect combination of fun, exercise, adventures and relaxation.K. Kielty 2008

    What I thought would be just another vacation soon became an amazing life changing experience.  Johnny’s balance of mind-body-spirit is so unique and fulfilling.Richard P 2006
