Jo-Leigh trained as a dancer in London where she pursued her passion for performing. Pilates was a part of her dance training and she used it improve endurance, core strength and flexibility. Transitioning into a Pilates instructor was a simple move. ‘Coming from a dance background I have a great awareness of the body and how it moves.’
Proudest achievement so far is transitioning from a dancer into a full time Pilates and Barre Instructor. I lost my devotion to dance and was unhappy, so I sat down and decided to change career, I haven’t looked back since.
Functional movement, nothing involving heavy weights! I love training in Pilates, barre, TRX and Yoga.
That's easy, anything involving cardio.
I like upbeat and current music in the charts, and I love bit of cheesy 90s classics, and still a Britney fan.
