Every. Body. Works.

We believe every body works better by way of movement within three regions of SpiritScience, and Strength.


Every person, every “body” is in constant motion within their Brain, Being, and Body. By harnessing the motion in these regions in the right direction for each individual, we can create a connected foundation of integrity, and better overall fitness results.

Learn more about how we work.




“Work” and “Movement” are the heart of J Bodyworks. We believe that Every Body Works better with improved movement.

For us, movement and work within “fitness” are not isolated to just your muscles. Instead, our approach to fitness is holistic, focusing your work on three key zones of the body:

Spirit: The movement of your Brain

Science: The movement of your Being

Strength: The movement of your Body

That’s our Key Three.




Work is both the effort and the answer. We structure and then guide the work you put in, so your body will work better for you. Put simply, we show you how to work to make you work.



Consider this: Every body is in constant motion within their Brain, Being, and Body. Therefore, we believe better movement and real results comes from harnessing the separate motions in all three regions in the right direction for each individual.

By correctly directing the motion for each of these harmonious systems – how you think (your Brain), the flow of your nervous system (your Being), and your overall physical fitness (your Body) – we can begin to build a cooperative foundation for real change.


Move your Brain, Move your Being, Move your Body.


Three Steps, Every Time.



J Bodyworks is focused on your overall fitness through the Key Three, and we do this by looking for specific cues at each stage to inform our coaching for that phase, Spirit, Science, or Strength.


In considering your fitness within Spirit, we begin by watching you and listening, taking into account where you are at psychologically that day. In quickly analyzing where you’re at mentally, that informs our training and bodywork in the Science phase, where we will select specific body adjustments to create effective re-patterning on a neurological level. Finally, focusing on physical fitness in the Strength phase, we coach you based on our learnings from Spirit and Science, conditioning to reach your fitness goals.

Throughout the Key Three, we watch and respond, providing a tailored workout per person



First, we learn where you fall on the Fix ←→ Flex Scale. That’ll begin to tell us how we’ll work with you: For instance, are you in pain or are you aiming to prep for an upcoming triathlon? This is meant to be a loose tool for us to gauge what our primary focus should be in working together with you. Where you land on the scale will change over time, and we’ll adjust our coaching based on your needs.



Each workout is specific to where your brain, being, and body are that day. Therefore, we analyze where you land within the Key Three. Think of these phases as dials: Your fitness level might be the best it’s been, but your back is in pain from sitting at your office desk that day. We’ll consider where each “dial” is from Poor → Great, and design your workout from there.



Conversation. We learn about you.

We need to first understand your personal context to create a framework for your success. What’s the Why? Once we understand the motivation behind what you’re aiming to achieve, we can build a better foundation to reach those goals.

Commitment is key: You must empower every session. We guide, we coach, but you must do the work, or it doesn’t “work”.

Most importantly, we always remember to celebrate the win. Your personal journey becomes our passion.


Hands-On. We work on you.

This is where we Re-pattern your body. By recognizing, then breaking bad patterns to create new ones, this is how we begin to build a strong foundation for better movement.


We have many tools we pull from, depending on your needs, and depending on the session. Overall, our hands-on therapy broadly includes soft-tissue work, nervous system activation, joint mobilization, and muscle activation, and we are certified trainers in both the Hendricksen’s Method and Z-Health.

What we use depends on you.


Fitness. We work with you.

Our focus for fitness is on Functional Movement. We tailor routines to build strength and realize your individual goals, focusing on functional movement that will translate specifically to your sport or core activity. By targeting movements with high “carry over” into your daily life and activities, the impact of your workout extends far outside the walls of the gym – which is the whole point.


Mobility Drills

To continue to re-map previously bad patterns, we use Mobility Drills: We have you mimic the motion you do in your sport, and then make physical adjustments to your body while you’re doing that particular skill. So we’re literally re-mapping inside your sport.

“Life-oriented” Fitness

Rather than simply have you “work out”, we craft routines that impact how you specifically move by utilizing equipment like kettle bells, sand bags, and TRX, which are more everyday-functional. We have access to an entire gym, so we design what will work best for you.

Nan is now a certified Z-Health Coach at J Bodyworks and looks forward to helping you achieve your goals and fulfill on your dreams.
