Joint Replacement Workshop for Personal Trainers
Meet Your Instructor for the Joint Replacement Workshop for Trainers
Hi, I'm Jody, your instructor for the Joint Replacement Workshop and the Creator of the Joint Replacement Training Manual, Hip and Knee Replacement Ebooks and Video, and now the online course too! It all started in 1998 in a little dungeon of a gym, truly, that's what its nickname was, where the first Joint Replacement program classes started in the middle of a tiny gym. We started a program in conjunction with our local hospital to be a graduation step for them after their surgery. Well what started out as 1 class of 12 participants grew to at its peak 6 classes of hip and knee clients preparing for and recovering from surgery.
Just imagine how many hips and knees I trained and along the way the knowledge we all gained was invaluable and some of it, as the physiotherapists shared at the hospital, was a learn along the way and document because we are creating it. Since there were so many intricacies we discovered working with hip and knee replacements along the way and quite a few people outside our small community were asking about it, I compiled all my knowledge and experience into these resources to share the blood, real sweat, and grunt tears with you.
Truly nothing could have beat this experience I gained in the trenches working with probably thousands of clients, but I did graduate from SFU with a diploma in Kinesiology and went on to get my specialty certification as a certified ACE Medical Exercise Specialist 16 years and counting.
I guess you could say this is a bit of a legacy piece I left behind for all those hips and knees out there and it was inspired by so many. It is my mission to empower and educate trainers to know the safest and best exercises for joint replacement clients and to feel confident training so we can get them back to the best function possible.

Here's to happy hips, knees that can kick it up when they need to and mobile joints for every day adventures never to be stopped!
