"Honestly Jo, you're a miracle worker, I feel amazing! Thank you x" Text received 12.11.14 #lovemyjob

It's not my thing, it's your thing!


Before this was called ‘Jo’s Thing’ it didn’t have a name. And so people would ask each other if they were going to ‘Jo’s Thing’. And so the name began. But I have come to realise that it’s actually “everyone who comes and trains with us’s Thing!” Yes Ros and I work you hard and yes we provide you with a fabulous workout and/or run, but what really makes this group special is the camaraderie between everyone in the group. Will have to stick to ‘Jo’s Thing’ though as the other name doesn’t quite roll off the tongue.

Fancy a workout with great like minded women? Our workouts can be knicker-wettingly funny. Weak pelvic floors welcome.

What are your options?

Full body workouts:

9.15am, at St Nic’s, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays

9.30am at Preston Park, Mondays and Fridays

Running training:

Thursdays at 9.30 – check the This Week page for location each week.

Our current Early Birds programme finishes on Friday 28th November. We’re then going straight into a 3 week programme from Monday 1st December, finishing on Friday 19th. Shout if you’d like to join us.

If you’re after 1:1 training, then contact me directly and we can book a slot.

Our next running event will be the Santa Dash 5k on Saturday 13th December. If you’ve never done it before, this is one to cherish. If you have done it before, I take it you’ve already entered? Go here if you haven’t already.

Whether you’re looking to join us for running training, or a full body workout, you’ll be joined by a bunch of like minded women, working out hard and enjoying the company. You’re welcome to join us once a week, five times a week or once in a blue moon. Every training session we do is different, but you can be sure you’ll get a full body workout or a great effective running session. We really do welcome all fitness levels, shapes and sizes. Whilst we will work you hard, we don’t subscribe to the ‘work them ’til they’re sick’ school of fitness. No bibs, no buckets and no whistles. Worried that you’re not fit enough? It’s not your starting point that counts – it’s the journey that we’re interested in!


If you’re new to Jo’s Thing, your first session is free and you get another free session every time you bring someone new! If you’ve been before and you’re coming back for more, then you need to go here to book in.

Unsure if it’s for you or got some questions? Call Jo on 07973 320919. Want to know more about what goes on?

Just realised something amazing! For the first time in about 15 years my news years resolution will not be…” To lose weight, get fit or to give up junk food” because I’ve already done all 3!!! Thanks so much Jo!
