ACE certified personal trainer

About Jo

As a former university teacher, I try to educate my clients, using thoughtful, personalized training based on the latest research—with a gentle humor thrown in. I specilaize in mindfulness in fitness and nutrition. My clients say I’m “easy to talk to,” “bring new insights,”and “treat clients as individuals.” My specialization are in Orthopedis exercise and nutrition coaching. But my certification in QiGong adds a dimension that sets me apart.
I came into the field when I reached my 50s and was diagnosed with cervical stenosis and lumbar disk degeneration. Working with a knowledgeable and caring trainer and learning QiGong changed my own life so much, I wanted to bring that to others.
