Don't forget next week (27th October) is half term so take a well earned break and we'll see you back on Monday 3rd November.

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, Wednesdays and Fridays

Running training:

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

Thursdays at 9.30am, meet at the Chalet Cafe at Preston Park.

Our current Early Birds programme finishes on Friday 24th October. We’re then taking a break for half term and start back from a new 4 week programme from 3rd November. Shout if you’d like a place.

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

After the Rise event on 12th October, we’ll turn our focus to the Brooks 10k in November. If you’re planning to run that but haven’t entered yet then you’ll need to move fast, entries will be closing very soon!

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!
