JJ's Body Challenge Workout and Playlists

JJ's Body Challenge Workout and Playlists

I've had the privilege of instructing my Body Challenge strength class at Equinox Pine Street for over a year. We started with Tuesdays at 6a and when folks asked for more we added Thursdays at 6a. Over time my crew of morning ninjas has grown and my core students have gotten stronger, improved their posture and become more athletic. They've learned how to safely perform all the main lifts (squats, deadlifts, lunges, pulls and presses) and how to create stability in their cores. When my students travel they tell me they really miss my class and their community. So now you can take a little piece of Pine Street with you on the road. Just toss an ankle band in your carry on and you'll be good to go!

Book JJ for a Smoothie Making & Tasting Workshop at Your Office

Book JJ for a Smoothie Making & Tasting Workshop at Your Office

I do a lot of corporate presentations, workshops and consulting. I love helping companies like Nixon Peabody, BPM and Union Bank improve employee wellness, productivity and culture through various health initiatives. My favorite these days is my Smoothie Making & Tasting Workshop. I give attendees three smoothie recipes and in a hands-on demo we make them and everyone gets to taste and pick their favorites. We talk about how to make the perfect smoothie to maximize nutrition and dispel common myths about popular ingredients. I bring everything. All I need is a blender set up in the kitchen or conference room. Folks love it. But don't take my word for it. Email me at JJ@JJ-Fit.com to book a wellness workshop at your office.

Welcome Sumner Weldon to SoulCycle NorCal

Welcome Sumner Weldon to SoulCycle NorCal

It's no secret that when I can snag 45m-60m away from the gym I love a good SoulCycle class. When I stumbled into Sumner Weldon's class recently I knew I hit gold. Her energy is awesome and her class is a solid workout. She includes some really awesome stretches and mobility drills after the weights section that no other instructors are doing and are MUCH needed for today's rider. So I was thrilled to connect with her after class to learn more about her.

Playlist Got Your Down? 10 Best Body Challenge Mixes

Playlist Got Your Down? 10 Best Body Challenge Mixes

One of the many awesome things about teaching Body Challenge is that each week I get to comb through all my favorite tunes and put together a 45-60 minute mix of movement inspiring music. I try to combine the best of what's new with my favorite vintage tracks so there's something for everyone. I'm a personal trainer, not a DJ. But I have to tell you, there's an art and science to mixology that I find rewarding. So if your playlist is leaving your workouts lackluster, try one of these 10 mixes and see if you get inspired.
