Personal Training

Jo has a special interest in women’s fitness

All of her clients prefer a female personal trainer, with real life experience and a diverse professional development history.   There’s a combination of the latest in physical training techniques, coaching you to find great life balance and the right advice around your food.  You wont find shakes or meal replacements – we are proudly PROFOOD – we eat real food and we will help you find the right food for your lifestyle and cooking ability. 

Jo is a women’s personal trainer

Jo has many personal training clients from all around Hobart with various complex problems following birthing such as pubic symphysis dysfunction, abdominal separation, sacro-iliac joint issues and pelvic instability.  If your pelvic floor is not what it used to be but you’d like to be a healthy, active mum Jo can personally tailor your program to suit.  If you have digestive issues that you just can’t resolve we can determine whether you will benefit from food sensitivity testing and we offer this service to all and any of our clients.  Jo Cordell-Cooper is fully qualified and registered (level 3) to offer personal training to children, older adults and pre and post natal women at her private gym at Geilston Bay, Hobart.  Jo is the current 2022-23 Personal Trainer of the Year for Tasmania

Jo is based in Hobart, but also offers online training and wellness coaching

Personal training sessions are not only 1 on 1, they are personal and tailored!  All sessions are based on the KAIZEN approach – that of incremental improvement – little steps add up.  Personal training is offered in 2 venues and online.  Jo’s private personal training studio is purpose built, indoor / outdoor, and nestled into a bush setting in Geilston Bay.  Personal training with Jo has a holistic feel – its a partnership towards improved health and fitness, a management of lifestyle issues, a recognition of who you are and what works for you (and what doesn’t).

Jo also offers water based personal training 

These water fitness sessions are a little like having your own private aqua aerobics instructor, who understands your body totally, and creates a safe workout just for you.  These sessions are held at YMCA Pool, Clarence, near Hobart.   

Jo is a Cancer Exercise Specialist and works with women with auto-immune conditions


Additionally we offer food sensitivity testing (96 foods) and stress hormone cortisol testing and we will work with you to create a lifestyle to manage stress and recover from feelings of exhaustion.  So you can see we offer so much more than the workout.

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 PT sessions are focused and I always walk away feeling energised and positive about my body. I highly recommend her!
