Holistic Personal Training - Wellness Coaching - Hiking


“the best is yet to come”

Meet Jo Cordell-Cooper, Women’s Personal Trainer in Hobart and Geilston Bay  

Jo Cordell-Cooper is a specialised women’s personal trainer and health and wellness coach offering services throughout Hobart.  Clients often remark they have renewed energy, better sleep, less pain, and need less visits to the doctor and physio when working with her.

 Jo offers specialised female personal training services, so clients often have auto immune conditions, cancer, postural issues, or pelvic issues following a complex birth.  Many of them just want to go hiking, be excited about their futures and feel strong and energetic. 

 A word from Jo:

 “to ensure we are a good fit let’s start with an obligation free, FREE 30 minute health consult.  I’ll be asking questions like:

  • What’s going on for you?
  • Why do you need a personal trainer or health coach?
  • What’s worked in the past / what hasn’t?
  • Do you have some special consideration / injuries / health conditions?”

Perhaps you’ll have some questions for me.

Here’s is little more on how Jo and how her holistic personal training approach might be able to help you.

Jo offers specialised female personal training services.  She is a women’s wellness coach.  She offers an online healthy eating and weight loss program called Eating for Health and Zing.  Jo has expertise in hormonal health, is a qualified Cancer Exercise Specialist and offers personal training for clients with auto immune conditions or complexities that can not be addressed in a mainstream gym. 

What happens after the FREE Health Consult?

There is a 1 on 1 movement screen and postural analysis.  This way Jo can tailor future personal training sessions to ensure you progress without injury from day 1.  Not aggravating injuries or creating muscle soreness is a feature of Jo’s approach. 

Jo works with older adults and was a national presenter at the Healthy Aging Summit 2021.  Jo offers water fitness personal training.  Imagine having your own personal aqua aerobics instructor utilising the best muscle strengthen tools to ensure you tone and strengthen during your water fitness personal training session despite your conditions.  Jo’s personal training approach will ensure your complexities are managed on land and in the pool.  Jo also offers online or virtual personal training for those who do not live in Hobart or Geilston Bay, Tasmania.  Jo is fully qualified and registered to offer personal training to children, older adults and pre and post natal women at her private gym at Geilston Bay, Hobart.

Testimonies for women’s specialist personal trainer Jo Cordell-Cooper – based in Geilston Bay Hobart

While I describe myself as a work in progress I can not deny within 6 weeks of starting personal training with Jo I was feeling stronger and more energetic. I am now eating with a lot more thought and with balance and diversity. I have lost weight and feel more vibrant. I did not see myself as a bush walker but now if a hike is offered I can say “sure, I can do that”

Alison Triffett, Librarian

I have had the best time personal training with Jo – I feel as a person I have grown and in terms of physical fitness I have grown greatly. Although we train in a group of up to 4 people I still feel I have that personal support of Jo. She is able to structure the sessions to provide variety as well as adaptation to each person’s strengths and capabilities. The benefit of group personal training is also that on some days you are the strong one, leading and inspiring the others in the group and on other days you are the one learning from them and striving to get to that point.

Jodie Hayes, Manager, Child Care Centre

Jo’s interest, knowledge and skill in women’s fitness is unparalleled in Hobart. I have a number of challenging, long standing injury issues. Jo has taken the time to understand these and she’s always checking in with me about those before we start a session. One on one personal training sessions in Geilston Bay sessions are focused and I always walk away feeling energised and positive about my body. I highly recommend her!
