As a personal trainer, Medical Exercise Specialist (orthopedic exercise), Nutrition Coach and QiGong teacher, I bring a holistic and wide-ranging knowledge to my work.
My goal is to educate my clients so they can live their lives to the fullest and do all that they want to do. I don't use bootcamp, drill sargeant or negative reinforcement but teach and guide with an intelligent, mindful approach.
I'm certified by The American Council on Exercise as a Personal Trainer, Medical Exercise Specialist, Health Coach and Orthopedic Exercise specialist; by Precision Nutrition as a nutrition coach; and by Santa Cruz Chi Center as a Level 3 QiGong Teacher.
My website, jochern.com has links to all my sites.
We find Jo's training very beneficial. It is tailored to our needs, an appropriate level of challenge and of sufficient day-to-day variety to stay interesting. In addition we have found Jo to be flexible to meet our occasional schedule changes. We find Small Change to be a great value. We have used SMF for the last two summers and will be re-upping shortly.
Jo is a great trainer who meets you where you are at and understands all sorts of health issues and goals. She is very compassionate but still makes you work!
