Meet JO ZERVAS
Qualification: Exercise Physiologist
Business/Location: www.balancedpostureonline.com Also trains clients out of Peak Body in North Beach and Foundry Fitness in Karrinyup.
Jo reveals a bit about herself…..
Name: Joanna Zervas
Age: 35 (but feels like 25)
Some of my favourite things: Snowboarding back in Canada, cold beer on a sunny afternoon, and pineapple on pizza.
Most common misconception about your job: "oh you're a trainer, what's the best way to lose my gut" UUGGGHHHH Please never ask me this at a party.”
Favourite injury to treat/deal with: frozen shoulder and shoulder impingement, I've had a lot of clients with this and I've helped most of them return to full rain, pain-free motion.
Favourite piece of advice: The Site of Pain may not be the Source of Pain. Your knee might hurt, but it's most likely not your knee that's the problem.
Place you’re most likely to be found when not at work: Hiding behind my laptop at a nearby cafe.
Why we love her: Not the average trainer. Jo is a great ally that we can send clients to and know they’re in great hands, not being rushed and someone who is ALWAYS training clients with correct biomechanics and posture in mind. Don’t judge her by her lawn-bowling ability.*
*(Jo may be in an opposing team in our weekly lawn bowls competition. She may have beaten us by a fair margin last week. We’re ok. We’ve moved on)
