There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky. And you ask, ‘What if I fall?’ Oh but my darling, what if you fly?” ― Erin Hanson
“In the beginner’s mind, there are many possibilities. In the expert’s mind, there are few.” — Shunryu Suzuki
“Anyone can work hard. The best have the discipline to recover.” — elite runner Lauren Fleshman
I believe in the art of goal setting. Courage in the face of fears. In the willingness to begin again and again and again (AKA progressing!) And, especially now as a 40-something mom of two very energetic and athletic boys, I believe in recovery! Our time together is personalized and takes a look at the big picture of your life. What happens outside our hours together influences what happens in the gym. I’m here for support, accountability, and inspiration.
I’ve been a fitness fanatic my whole life. I started swimming competitively at age 8 and swam through college, earning All-American NCAA Academic Honors. I competed in triathlons in my off-seasons and interned with the US Olympic Swim Team coaches at Stanford University in the summers. My post-collegiate years have been focused on running, and I remain competitive in the Austin Masters scene — I won 1st place Masters at the 3M Half Marathon in 2017 and 3rd place Masters at the Austin Half Marathon in 2017 and 2016. I myself am coached by a 4-time US Olympic Trials Marathon Qualifier. I believe being coached helps me be a better coach to my athletes in return. I am currently training for the 2018 California International Marathon.
I’ve coached several clients to their first half and full marathons, with varying distances and personal bests along the way. I’ve helped people improve in the sometimes daunting swim portion of a triathlon. I’ve coached several people through weight loss of 30 pounds or more. I’ve also helped previously sedentary people with significant restrictions in their hips and upper body open up, strengthen, and learn to navigate the gym with confidence. The common denominator here is fun. I utilize such gym toys as TRX, medicine balls, kettlebells, BOSU, and bands whenever appropriate. Even though we will work hard together, I promise you will smile.

“Jordan balances know-how and challenge with a respect for her athletes’ individual levels and goals. She is always organized and prepared, and makes the journey of getting stronger fun. At the heart of her effectiveness as a trainer is her own undeniable example as an accomplished and committed athlete.” —Tricia M.
“Jordan is one of those trainers everyone should have. She pushes me to do things completely out of my comfort zone. She is kind and forceful in letting me know I when I can do more— and she’s always right. Getting up on a Saturday morning to go to one of her classes is something I look forward to. She creates a community where everyone feels strong and safe. Her knowledge is top notch. She is approachable yet stern. She’s a combination of a pre-school teacher and drill instructor. She just gets it, and her enthusiasm for fitness is infectious. I would recommend Jordan to anyone. Whether you are just starting your fitness journey, or just need to add ‘more’ to your routine, Jordan is someone you should seriously talk to.”
“Jordan is so much fun to workout with! She has pushed me to keep getting stronger and works with me to find challenging but fun strength and HIIT exercises. Even though her workouts are HARD, she makes it fun by always smiling and having an encouraging attitude. I actually look forward to our weekly training sessions!” —Sara N.
“I have been training with Jordan for about ten months now. I have increased my strength and stamina, built lean muscle; as well as increased my exercise knowledge immensely. She has provided me with different workouts from HIIT, TRX, Kettlebells, circuits, heavy lifting, etc. She has made all of these training methods 100% doable with some minor knee limitations. Jordan is a great support in and outside of the training sessions, she makes sure to keep you on top of your goals by providing workouts that can be done on your own. It feels good to have people ask at almost 32 years old which sport you play in college… HUGE THANKS to Jordan for that one.” —Caryn O.
“Jordan makes working out fun! You won’t ever want to miss a workout because of the great time you’ll have. She is encouraging and motivating and never harsh or abrupt. She always has a smile on her face and I promise you’ll always leave a workout with one on yours. Her exercises are challenging, but doable. My body and mind changed so much for the better when I started working out with Jordan. She started off as my Instructor and became my friend. She motivates me through positive encouragement to be the best holistic person I could be. I try my best and give it my all for her. I adore Jordan and anyone looking for an amazing trainer needs to look no further!” —Katy G.
“Jordan motivates me to train harder and smarter than I ever would on my own. After 10 months of weekly workouts with Jordan, at age 55, I’m stronger than I’ve ever been in my entire adult life, and I can do squats with no knee pain!” —Caroline H.
“We are in our 60s and spent our summer working with Jordan to develop a strength-training regimen we could transfer to our gym when we returned home to Vermont in the Fall. In our twice weekly sessions, Jordan was always prepared with a thoughtful, carefully planned routine to introduce us to a variety of exercises, using machines, free weights, TRX, and floor exercises. We left with a written plan, with confidence we were on a path to strength and stability, and greatly inspired by our work with Jordan. We recommend her without reservation!” —Amy H. and Larry Y.
“When I workout with my beautiful trainer and friend Jordan, she hurts me in a wonderful way. I wake to sore legs, sore arms, sore abs. My body begs me to workout with her. She makes my muscles cry and die. I love being strong. Jordan is my main workout squeeze. She leads with heart. She is motivational. I have found my dream girl. #1 Best Trainer in ATX!!!” —Joanna F.
