RESULTS - they don’t happen to you. You make them happen. So what will you put into it? Because that is what you get back!

Jo-Jo received her personal training certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She is an experienced yogi, cyclist, boxer, dancer, roller-blader, bodybuilder, and loves a good run. She has been a personal trainer for many years. Jo-Jo uses various modalities to meet her clients’ health and fitness goals. Her programming can consist of corrective exercise to help with muscular-skeletal issues, rehabilitation after physical therapy, balance work, core, strength, flexibility, mobility, power, speed and/or agility.


Jo-Jo likes to use core building, proprioceptively challenging movements, circuit training, compound movements, pyramid system, split routines, drills, endurance, and plyometrics if appropriate. When these are combined the impact can be tremendous. She has watched her clients on many occasions grow stronger, lose weight, and improve their overall health. She likes to use many different techniques to avoid a halt in progress. This ensures her clients don’t hit the dreaded plateau.


Weight loss and medical issues have a big impact on how we workout, so finding the correct exercises is key for the client’s program. Different variables also need to be considered to get the outcome desired. Jo-Jo believes she is very attuned to her clients’ needs and wants. She likes to create a program where the client enjoys what they are doing and progress on a continuing basis. It is important to her that one feels empowered in reaching their goals and beyond.

I have been working out with Jo Jo for over 5 years in personal training and her GTS classes. One of the things I like most about having her as my trainer is that she teaches the proper form for the exercises and her belief that doing the exercise correctly is much more important than performing more reps, quality versus quantity. Jo Jo also knows when I can be pushed to do more and when I am at my limit. Jo Jo’s classes are challenging and the exercises are varied so that it doesn’t become boring. I would definitely recommend Jo Jo to anyone who is looking to have a challenging workout but with the proper form!
