Joa Rivas

Personal Trainer, Joa Fitness

I help business owners and corporate clients achieve success by empowering their workforce with better health and posture. I am passionate about educating organizations and individuals on spinal health through a corrective and preventive program designed to improve posture and mobility—particularly for those who sit for long hours at their desks—and promote overall well being inside and outside the workplace.

I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 15, and I suffered from debilitating chronic back pain for many years. I sought help from physiotherapists and chiropractors, took various medications, and underwent several treatments, but nothing really worked.

Until I found fitness training—specifically Yoga and Pilates. After 10 years in fitness training, I noticed significant and lasting improvements in my posture and core strength. More importantly, I gained freedom from pain.

I created the Posture School Program (PSP) in 2015, where I share with you all my knowledge and experience, along with the successes of everyone I’ve worked with, to be free of pain and achieve optimal health and wellness. Together, we can equip your teams with a stronger spine while reducing the risk for health conditions, stress, and employee burnout.
