Working in retail management for 20 plus years, Jody decided it was time to become healthier by losing excess weight. The weight was causing health complications of prediabetes and prehypertension.
During her journey, Jody decided to study to become an ACSM Personal Trainer and to also earn a BS in Health Science and Psychology. She knew this would enable her to continue to grow and help others. Jody believes that everyone can be healthy and believes in the World Health Organization’s definition of the word, “Health is not only the absence of infirmity and disease but also a state of physical, mental, and social well-being.”
Jody has been working in the health industry for 15 years as a Personal Trainer with certifications in Older Adult Fitness, Weight Management, Small Group Training, Total Body Conditioning, and CPR/AED. She trains small groups of 3-6, pairs, and personal one on one, as well as weight loss groups consisting of up to 50.
Jody has also worked with seniors as an activities coordinator, exercising, playing cognitive games, enjoying arts and helping with daily tasks as simple as eating. These would in turn lessen anxiety and increase energy, and would ultimately make daily living a little bit easier.
