I am learning to surf and the demands of the sport were taking a toll on my spine and neck. I was at the point where I thought I would have to forgo the sport.
I joined Jana's program and she has strengthened my body from head to toe. The program worked out all my issues with my spine and neck and helped immensely with areas like my knees, wrists and hips. I can’t say enough about the program.
I also just enjoyed one of my strongest snowboarding seasons in several years. This was my “aha!” moment that the only thing I had changed from the past few years was the Midlife Movement program. Her coaching through the program gives you the confidence and accountability to move just a little every day. I am excited for my seven day surf adventure, at 50!
As a 50yo former competitive runner my body was paying me back for years of overtraining with aching joints, stiffness and chronic tendon injuries. I was struggling to find training that was suited to my age and stage - but challenging enough to keep me motivated. I was constantly tired and literally hitting the snooze button on all my morning exercise plans.
All this changed when I signed up for Jana's 12-week midlife movement program. I got back into a routine of training most mornings. I could feel the transformation in my flexibility and mobility as the moves became easier, and I could see I was getting more toned....and this motivated me to keep on going."
The hard cold truth is that you need to move your body every day and the old saying "Use it or Loose it" is very true
You know you need to work on your strength & mobility as you are getting older but you have been burnt by exercises that push your body too hard and cause injuries and now you are confused about what to do
Maybe you used to have regular exercise routine but now you are pushing the snooze button on all exercise because you are have chronic injuries, aches and pains
Perhaps you used to be fit & strong, doing sports but now you are feeling like your body has been hijacked by your changing hormones, you lost connection to your own body and experiencing the side effects of menopause
And you want to exercise & move in a simple yet powerfully effective because you are busy, short on time and don't want to leave the comfort of your home.
The thing is that no matter how great your life is, if your body is not fit, strong and mobile, your quality of life will suffer.
Which means missing out on doing fun things or having to give up your favourite sport
and one day you will be telling your grandchildren "I used to ...
(surf, run, play tennis ...)
You simply cannot afford to live in a body that doesn't move well, hurts and will deteriorate with time.
That is not living, that's surviving!
I had assumed that bodyweight and mobility work would be easy but I found it wonderfully challenging and enriching. It's amazing how much our bodies need to re-learn and mobility training is the perfect antidote to the aches and pains that we tend to take for granted as a natural and acceptable part of ageing. I cannot recommend Jana more highly. You won't be disappointed.
I joined Jana's mobility program when I realized I was approaching 40 and wanted to move with more ease and increase my fitness. I am no fan of traditional gyms or hard exercise, this mobility class is exactly what I wanted - simple movements but effective. Jana's coaching style is gentle and I love that she focuses on getting movements right and building on it. Highly recommend it
What your body needs, especially as it is transitioning through peri-menopause and menopause are:
Strength training so you can maintain your lean muscle mass and strong bones
Cardio vascular fitness for strong heart and lungs
Mobility and flexibility so you can move freely with no aches, pain and injuries
Agility, movement control, body awareness so you don't suffer from age related falls and fractures
Learning new movements for brain health, neuroplasticity
Daily exercise for physical, mental and emotional well-being
That is a lot of boxes to tick and let's not forget that exercise should be fun, enjoyable and
something you get to do
rather than have to do!
I'm a busy mum and I don't have much time to exercise. Through working with Jana, my posture and overall mobility have improved so much!
Jana takes a fun and pragmatic approach to her training. It is refreshing to be trained as a middle aged woman and not as a beefy 20 year old male!
This is where I come in because I would love to teach you movement and exercise that ticks ALL of those boxes (and takes as little time as possible)
If we haven't met, I'm Jana and I'm all about making exercise fun and simple (it is the only way so you stick to it)
I'm a Fitness & Movement Coach, certified TACFIT instructor, strength & conditioning coach and a qualified personal trainer.
I have years of experience training women from all walks of life. In the last couple of years, I have really started focusing on empowering women over 50 with exercise and movement that helps them confidently navigate ageing and menopause, live in vibrant health and no pain.
My clients get strong, powerful and move like ninjas regardless of their age. My clients fix their old injuries, never get new ones and often return to doing sports they love but had to give up.
I help my clients squeeze daily movement into their busy lives which makes them feel confident, full of energy, glowing, resilient and invincible.
All that without any fancy equipment, gym membership and tons of time 🤯
After all, I don't have any of those either and I run 2 businesses, coach tons of clients and solo parent three children.
I don't have a lot of time yet I exercise and move my body every single day!
I'm the fittest and strongest I have ever been at 45. I can surf for hours, keep up with my super active kids and
I have tons of energy.
Because I have mastered moving my body in an efficient and effective way that makes my body strong rather than overwhelming it (I used to do crazy workouts that left me exhausted and sore for days 😫).
AND I TEACH THIS TYPE OF MOVEMENT AND EXERCISE TO ALL MY CLIENTS
So what if ...
You had a complete blueprint to strengthening & toning your body from head to toe, having enough mobility and flexibility to move with ease and never injure yourself.
You could age knowing you will avoid the physical and mental decline people experience as they age so you can enjoy your independence as you get older.
You could fit in daily movement & exercise regardless of how busy your life is and go through each day oozing energy and feeling fabulous!
Exercise and move your body in a way that leaves you glowing, energised and feeling amazing rather than collapsed on the floor, gasping for air and sore for days.
You reconnected with your body and had confidence that your body will move well in your day to day life or your favourite sport, regardless of your age.
Exercise from the comfort of your own home, any time of the day rather than having to drive to a gym full of blokes flexing their biceps in mirrors, checking you out..
And tons more!
Jana's training has toned, strengthened and energised me beyond my expectations ... and helped me recover from fractured tailbone by building my core strength.
Training with Jana is so empowering.
Every time I learn something new about my body and my ability to move!
I highly recommend Jana's program to anyone in midlife wanting a gentle approach to exercise, from the comfort of their home.
Even though the movements were gentle, they definitely got my heart rate up!

This is a fantastic program for surfers like me who want to strengthen my upper body for paddling and popping up… a great range of stretches and a challenging but rewarding flow of movements… It is structured to do at your own pace with modifications aimed at all levels… thoroughly recommend the program and Jana is an awesome and encouraging coach
After a few week training with Jana, I realised why my shoulder had been giving me problems for so long! Her attentiveness to the way I moved helped me to understand how I can make simple movement changes to prevent further injury and continue to enjoy my sport for longer
Watch an interview with my amazing client Suzanne about her experience in the program and the phenomenal results she achieved (it is only 10 minutes long but packed with gold!)
The problem with most exercise programs is that they offer you a quick results without concentrating on building the fundamentals of human movement.
It's like building a pyramid without the solid first level and watching it crumble later.
Most programs also don't understand that every person is at a different level so there needs to be a way how to modify an exercise to suit you and your level of skill and ability.
Strong bodies that move well don't happen by luck or accident but by working on the basics and then building on them in a strategic way with focus on longevity and preventing injuries.
That is why in this program I use a tried and tested 4 step method
MOBILISE - STRENGTHEN - FLOW - STRETCH
Get rid of the restrictions ...
Remove any stiff and tight spots in your body so it can move freely
Improve your posture especially if you are sitting down or spend time on the computer

Rehabilitate old and existing injuries and prevent new ones from popping up
Move your body with confidence and trust
Nourish your body and lubricate all parts so it moves like a well-oiled machine
Improve joint pain or any conditions you might have (i.e. arthritis)

Module 2 - Hips & Upper Back
