About Jodie – Offering Circuit Training in Norwich
Hello! I’m Jodie and welcome to JB Fitness Norwich. My fitness journey really began after having my second child in 2011, I joined the gym with great intention but with no real experience or knowledge I always felt unsure of what to do when I got there, I felt lost, insecure and intimidated. I thought about having a personal trainer but the costs were way out of my budget, so I decided to invest in gaining the knowledge for myself, along with some qualifications, I got my level 2 in gym instruction & then went on to get my level 3 in personal training.
Exercise has had such a massive impact on me, not only physically but mentally as well, I suffer with PTSD, anxiety & panic attacks, exercise helps me in so many ways, my mind is constantly on replay, constantly going over & over things, exercise frees me from my mind, calms me and helps me switch off & turn negative thoughts, feelings & emotions into positive ones, it is such a powerful tool!
After gaining the knowledge and experience and being aware of the positive influence exercise can have on you, I decided I wanted to help others experience the power of exercise, so I went on to get various qualifications in group training (bootcamps, circuit training & Hiitstep, so I could offer classes to help people be and feel apart of a something.
A group of people, together, learning new skills, gaining knowledge, strength and confidence. Whilst engaging with others, having fun, a laugh & making new friends. But at the same time also getting fit and taking self care.
I chose to teach HIITSTEP as I absolutely love the speed & intensity of it and I also chose to teach Circuits, as this has always been one of my all time favourite ways to exercise as it combines both weights and cardio. It allows me to use my knowledge and experience to teach others how to lift, lower and use weights correctly and most importantly to offer a P.T session to you without the P.T price tag! I get to incorporate and teach different types of training methods and use my creativity by designing new and exciting circuit programs each week, it also gives me the flexibility to adjust it to suit everyone’s level of fitness, whether you’re starting out on your fitness journey or well experienced.
One of the most important things to me about my class is that you feel welcome and included, no matter what your level of fitness is, we all work together, we all support & encourage each other, we are a team always.
