USP - Joey Hayes - About page

Matt Hodgson
Brisbane Bullets NBL, Australian Boomers Representative

Joey and I started working together two months before my first pre-season with Brisbane Bullets. During that time, Joey opened my eyes to training efficiency, proper nutrition, and practical ways to improve my recovery habits.

My performance improved dramatically due to his methods, and I enjoyed the best season of my basketball career by far. Upon working with him for 12 weeks so far in the off-season, he has helped me to increase my muscle mass while simultaneously decreasing skin folds, improve my single-leg stability, strengthen my core, and improve my athletic performance on the basketball court even more.

Maybe even more important than all of the above is that he genuinely cares about his athletes. Joey is someone who I see not only as a long-term working partner, but also as a friend that will support me during the tough times as well. If you want to become a better athlete AND a more well-rounded person, then you can’t do any better than enlisting Joey Hayes.

I’m Going to Ask You Bluntly:

  • How does it feel when you sit Helpless On The Sidelines watching your team mates or competitors play or train when you can’t?
  • What’s it like to know that every training session and game missed due to injury is another Step Backwards Away From Your Goals and another chance for your team mates and competitors to get the edge over you?
  • How does it feel to know that every Competition you miss is Another Opportunity to be Overlooked By Club Coach, Rep Team, Scouts and Recruiting Staff from pro teams.
  • Are you stuck with being Labelled Injury Prone, Soft or Damaged Goods?
  • Are you frustrated by constantly experiencing Niggling Aches, Pains and Injuries that are Restricting You from playing to the best of your ability?
  • What would it be like to Never Lack Confidence in your Rehabilitation Again?
  • How would it feel to finally have a professionally Structured Rehabilitation Program with no stone left unturned?
  • How would it feel to have the utmost Confidence In Your Body - knowing full well that it was Bullet Proof and can handle anything thrown at it?

Nick Buchanan
Tasmania Tigers Cricketer, Brisbane Heat

On the advice of my physio Victor Popov, I started working with Joey in May 2016 after failing to play a single cricket game with the QLD Bulls Cricket team in the previous 5 years due to chronic injuries to my back, shoulder, hip, Achilles, knee, groin, hamstring and elbow.

Through Joey’s world class program he was able to rehabilitate my body and mind to allow me to play 15 games which culminated in selection for the Brisbane heat cricket team in December 2016 and a subsequent contract with the Tasmanian Cricket in August 2017.

Joey’s programs and attention to detail are what separates the good from the great! And from my experience exceed anything I ever received at the professional clubs I played for.

  • How would you like to Lengthen your Sporting Career and Delay Retirement for a few years longer?
  • Are you sick of Losing an Income from Competition or Sponsorship payments due to Missed Competitions or Time Off Work due to Injury?
  • Are you looking for the Exact Information and Program to Guarantee you remain Healthy and Injury Free?
  • What If Returning From Injury In Half The Time Was Easier Than You Think?

If you answered Yes, you need my Injury Rehabilitation Prevention Program!

Bryce Retzlaff
Brisbane Lions AFL Club 2012

Prior to training with Joey in THE PIT I never knew what was required in order to achieve my dream of being drafted to a professional AFL club.

Seeking the knowledge of Joey Hayes ensured I became The Biggest, Fastest and Strongest and mentally toughest athlete I could be. 

Unfortunately during my AFL draft year-I broke my hand and foot whilst playing. At The USP PIT Gymnasium Joey’s philosophy is work thru and around which negates any self-pity or victim mentality. Joey had me training my non injured arm and non injured leg which accelerated my recovery time thru a phenomenon called neural transference. Although the changes were physical it was the professionalism and mentality that Joey instilled in me that would help me in all areas of life.

Through Joey’s Intense training program, nutrition and supplementation plan I was putting on a minimum of a kilogram of lean muscle every week!

Joeys enthusiastic approach to coaching makes him a leader in his field and gave me the competitive advantage needed to succeed with my personal goals and aspirations. Joey recognizes the athletes individual needs and tailors his programs around these specific requirements.

If you’re serious about reaching your full potential and playing a professional sport, I’d highly recommend the professional coaching services of Joey Hayes. It is the best decision I ever made and I would not be in the position I am in now without Joeys training. His conversion rate for athletes who reach their dreams and achieve their goals speaks for itself. 

We Don't Just Rehabilitate Your Body
We Will Rehabilitate Your Mind As Well!

Injuries Can Wreak Havoc on Your Psychology, Negatively Affecting your Confidence, Self Esteem and Ultimately your Rehabilitation and Eventually your Performance.

It’s Common To Experience Depression, Anger, Denial and Despair.

These Negative Emotions Will Derail and Delay Your Rehab Process, Yet How Many Physios, Coaches or Medical Staff Actually Address these Problematic Issues?

Very Few… So Why Is This?

Quite simply Most Coaches and Physios Do Not Possess the Appropriate Skills, Knowledge or Experience To Address These Issues.

Some Coaches and Physios May Be Desensitized to Injuries – as They See Them Every Day and May Have Forgotten How Challenging It Can Be To Cope With Injuries.

I Know Exactly How It Feels And What it Feels Like…To Sit There and Watch Helplessly from the Side Lines…

I Know What It Feels Like To Be Injured and in PAIN…

Kurt Tippett
Sydney Swans AFL Superstar

I have trained in ‘THE PIT’ with Joey for 14 years. In this time he helped me become BIGGER FASTER and STRONGER!

Joey’s workouts and intense approach to training is like no other. Training hard in ‘THE PIT’ has helped me achieve my goal of getting drafted to an AFL club. Joey’s revolutionary training and rehab techniques in conjunction with his medical staff were instrumental in allowing me to overcome an ongoing knee issue.

I would recommend Joey to anyone who is looking to get the edge over his or her opponent!

Dayne Beams
Collingwood AFL Premiership Player 2010

Since I was a youngster I always dreamed of playing AFL footy at the highest level. To play at the elite level, I knew I’d have to get Bigger Faster & Stronger!

That is when I sought the guidance and expertise and wisdom of Joey Hayes. I’d seen and heard about the amazing results he’d produced with previous AFL footballers, so I gave him a call.

This would have been one of the smartest things I’ve ever done! I was blown away by the results! Within 3 weeks he increased my vertical jump by 29cm, my speed, agility and explosive power went through the roof! To say he has mastered the art of strength and conditioning and fine tuning football performance would be an understatement!

If you are fair dinkum about having a crack at playing top level sport I’d highly recommend seeking the services/training with Joey Hayes at THE PIT. The only regret I had was not training with him sooner! Do yourself a favor get into his program – You won’t regret it!

The Problem with Normal Injury Rehabilitation

The Problem With Most Rehabilitation Programs Is that Physiotherapists and Medical Staff Rarely Provide You With Clear Goals and Sport Specific Training Programs and Guidelines For Your Return To Play.

This Is The Most Important Part Of The Rehabilitation Process Yet Is Often Left Up To You and Your Sports Coach To Devise The Return To Play Training Program Without the Appropriate Knowledge This Phase Is Performed Very Poorly!

The Result-You Get Re-Injured Once Again!

How Can You Expect To Return To Play At The Competitive Level Without Clear Cut Guidelines and Sport Specific Skills Rehab?

This Problem is Further Compounded By A Distinct Lack of Communication Between All Personnel Involved. For Instance, Open Lines of Clear Communication Between You, Your Coach, Your Physio and Your Strength and Conditioning Coach.

It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way!

You MUST HAVE a Co-Ordinated Rehab Program or Else You’re Doomed to Fail!

Why You Need the Sports Specific Injury Rehabilitation Program?

One Third of Athletes Will Re-Injure Themselves Within 4 Weeks of Returning To Play From Injury.

Injuries Are Not a Normal Part of the Game and Should Never Occur!

These Injuries Are Re-Occurring Due To a Lack of Structure and Progression. Once You Finish at the Physios, You’re Often Left To Manage Your Own Return To Play or Compete Process.

This is Arguably the Hardest and Most Challenging Part of the Rehab Process as You MUST BE Able to Undertake Full Training Prior To Playing and You Must Be Capable of Doing Everything at Training That Would Occur In Competition.

You Must Have A Program That Not Only Rehabilitates Your Injury But Also Resolves The Compensations and Postural Deviations That Have Occurred as a Result Of The Injury!

Lucky For You There's A Solution

Sam Gilbert
National AFL Draft 2005 Pick 33 to St Kilda, NAB Rising Star Nominee 2007

When I missed out on the QLD State under 18 AFL team I was shattered. I thought I had lost my chance at playing professional AFL and my career was slipping away. That was, until I sought the services of Joey Hayes.

I heard Joey Hayes was the best at getting athletes into the best shape of their lives, both physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally! I was skeptical at first, but my initial fears were unfounded.

After my first session in THE PIT I knew this was the right and only choice! And THE PIT would be my new best friend!

Joeys professionalism, enthusiasm, meticulous preparation and individual programming ensured I would be the fastest, strongest and mentally toughest athlete on the footy field.

If you want to reach your potential and be the best athlete you can possibly be, then you need to train with Joey!

Gold Coast Stingrays AFL Club

Having had a massive injury list during previous years, (I was adamant to ensure this would not happen again) I changed tact and sought the expertise of Joey Hayes to map out, program and guide our training processes for the Gold Coast Stingrays Under 16 AFL Team. …Wow….All I can say he is extraordinary!

His ability to get athletes Bigger, Faster, Stronger, Fitter but more importantly keep them Healthy and Injury Free is amazing/something special! The program the Gold Coast Stingrays received was the most specific, detailed and comprehensive program I have laid eyes on.

Joey Hayes is the Real Deal and the only person I would ever consider seeing if your goal is to WIN, Succeed and Dominate the competition.

The parents that attended our training sessions, were blown away by the quality, intensity, professionalism and standards of our training. I have Joey to thank for that.

By the way our team won the QLD State Titles and beat every other team by a minimum of 10 goals. It was also a record for the number of Gold Coast AFL players that were selected in the QLD team.

We did not sustain any soft tissue injuries during the 8 months Joey worked with us. Extra-ordinary, blessed and gifted individual that knows his stuff and guarantees success! 

You Have Nothing to Lose and Everything to Gain!

Committed to your success,

See you in THE PIT…….maybe.
