Member turned Instructor
Meet your new instructor - Jo!
Jo has been living in the Waikato for 9 years and is loving this area. She and her husband moved down from Auckland and now have 2 little children who provide great motivation to keep fit and healthy!
Jo started to get more involved in fitness during her 11 years at Uni (a reflection of her love of learning and a PhD) doing ballroom and Latin dancing, then a bit of indoor climbing followed by triathlons and long-distance running. Her focus is much more on completion rather than competing but loves a group atmosphere for the great encouragement exercising with others provides.
Barre has been a perfect complement to so many of her sports as well as providing a great workout on its own - and being a great form of exercise during her last pregnancy!Jo is excited about being able to encourage more people to reap the benefits that barre has to offer and bring her passion for learning about movement to other people in the Flourish community.
Make sure you say hi next time you see Jo in class! Jo will also be leading our new Mums & Bubs Barre class - we can't wait to get this one started.
