Professional MMA Fighter/Trainer

Hi, I'm Joey Morency, owner and head coach of Nation Strength. I am a longtime fitness enthusiast, dating back to my early adolescence. I have been training in martial arts just as long and am a professional MMA fighter. I train in the Ottawa\Gatineau area.

I started coaching as a hobby around the age of 17 as a way to encourage my friends to train. As I gained more knowledge and experience, I started coaching as a side job while I was in College and fighting Amateur MMA around the age of 21. Shortly after graduating college with a diploma in Accounting and Management, I began coaching full time and started Nation Strength.

I am a certified Bioforce Conditioning Coach under Joel Jamieson at Bioforce and 8WeeksOut. I'm a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NCSA). By next year, I plan on going back to school to study Human Kinetics and upon completion, I want to be a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the NSCA.
