"The community aspect of Fusion is far greater than anything I’ve experienced in this city - we support each other and pick each other up if we falter."

Her boisterous & confident presence as an instructor comes from her years as a high school teacher - and we’re not quite sure where her other amazing energy comes from. Bringing the Pound workout to KC, she started with Fusion (“my original #poundposse”),  and teaches at other studios throughout the city. Pound’s unique brand of “rock out workout” has clients use drumsticks to literally rock out (“I do not workout without music because that is simply blasphemy”), while they up their cardio endurance and build muscle tone. Jodie’s excitement over teaching a new track is infectious, and the hour flies by as she sings along, motivates clients to let loose and enjoy, and if we’re lucky, sometimes even throws in a few dance moves. “Fitness is a lifestyle, not a phase,” she explains, and her carefree passion of teaching Pound and Fusion Fly spin classes never ceases to impress (the experience or the soreness the next day.)
