STRENGTH | MOBILITY | RESTORATION
WELCOME TO THE NEW NORMAL
For the past 10 months its been a bit of a rollercoaster! Gyms are open, gyms are closed, classes are cancelled but the gyms are open... oh no wait no more gym for you! It has been so hard to stay consistent with all the changing of the rules. So I'm taking control of what I can, if the gyms open in Feb then great but I'm not holding my breath.
Now I know New Years Resolutions get a bad rap but its human nature to want to implement change at the start of a new week or month or a new year, and I am no different.
Ever heard the saying "too much of a good thing", well it's true. After years of
too much yoga and not much else my body started to object, initially just a small twinge in my lower back... soon developing into a full blown injury. I couldn't squat, I couldn't lunge, sometimes even walking caused me pain! Apparently my body was too flexible but it didn't have the strength to support such range of motion.
But every cloud and all that, I started to put less focus into flexibility and more into building strength to support my joints, taking my training off the mat and into the weights room... My own practice, my clients training and the classes I teach to have massively changed, with amazing results all round. Eventually taking it full circle and back to the mat combining weight training, yoga and pilates to create what would become my signature concept, Fusion.
What People Say
I started Jordan's classes after having been recommended Pilates by my physio for a bad back I'd struggled with for years. I preferred the sound of Fusion over Pilates and since starting my pain has completely gone.
Since having a baby 2 years ago I've not had much of a core. Jordan's classes have been amazing at building back the strength I'd lost and I'm feeling more toned than I did before I was pregnant.
Jordan is amazing! Her classes are so varied and fun, she knows just how to challenge us the right amount so that we work hard but aren't so put out to discourage us. She always keeps me coming back.
Most New Years Resolutions last a full 12 days! I've created this 6 week program not to only help you get past the 12 day mark but to instil training as part of your lifestyle forever, and hopefully make it a part of your daily routine that you actually enjoy!
The 6 weeks will be a mix of both live online group classes and a written program that you can follow on your own, at your own intensity and ability.
Starting January 4th 2021
Consistency in the New Normal

What you'll need...
As it's no longer looking like a short hiatus from the gym it's well worth investing in some essential home gym equipment. However I have done my best to kept the necessary equipment to a minimum.
