Blessed to find Jodi
I am the least committed individual when it comes to fitness, but a personal injury and brain trauma necessitated my getting fitter. I was blessed to find Jodi, not simply because she had a fabulous facility at home for the sessions, but because she had both the technical training and first-hand experience of overcoming physical challenges. The combination of empathy, ability and tough love was exactly what I needed to kickstart my journey to better - thank you coach Jodi!
Discovered my blind spots
As a Social Worker, I must admit I was skeptical about what I would accomplish during this training. But I was very mistaken. Jodi supported me to discover blind spots in emotions around food and realizing the control I do have over my health and goals. It was such an amazing experience. To touch on so many topics and work through them in such a safe and clear manner. There was lots of tough emotional moments that Jodi helped me through and to maintain my motivation. I am in disbelief of how my perspective has changed so much
The realization of the control I have over my food was a life changing moment for me. I always felt so powerless. I was scared I was derail off my exercise, water intake, and food tracking, but have not got off track at all. This is the first time in my life I have been able to maintain this level of control and consistency in my life. And it feels right for the first time, which means the support I received from Jodi was perfect for me
Jodi is amazing
Jodi is amazing. I am overweight with knee pain and, being overweight, was hesitant to see a personal trainer for fear of being judged. After reading Jodi's back story I realized she has been there; she has had children, she has been overweight, she understands what it feels like. I met with her and explained my concerns and she worked with me every (literal) step of the way. If my knees couldn't do a move, she changed it to something I could do. She challenged me and pushed me but believed I could do what she was telling me to do. My mind is my worst enemy, it told me I couldn't do one more, but Jod told me I could. And I did. I have been with Jodi for 6 months and the physical improvements are amazing (down two dress sizes, booyah!) but not near as amazing as the improvements to day to day life. You start to notice little things, like being able to, one handed, hold the full jug of laundry soap above your head. Carrying dog food on one arm and having the attendant grunt and heave the same bag. Carrying alllll the groceries like a boss. I helped my husband carry a couch down stairs without panicking and dropping it. All these daily things get easier, your children get lighter (no really, I can wear my 9 year old on like a backpack now!), the stairs don't make you look for a ramp. You will not be disappointed. Simply being able to squat without horrible knee pain is worth it (also, your butt will look amaaaazinng). Thank you, Jodi!
Funniest trainer out there
I have trained with Jodi for the past eight years. I can definitely recommend working with her. While gyms usually tend to be crowded, chaotic and disorganized, Jodi offers a wide variety of exercise devices in a spotless environment. Jodi is always joyful, positive and tries to push you to their limits while still considering their physical well being making each session a fun experience. Jodi is always cracking jokes and is probably the funniest trainer out there. However when it comes to working out she will go hard on you. You can expect excellent results in a short period of time. She is a great role model and inspires you to work harder than ever. This is why I will always have Jodi as my trainer
