Jill Meyer is an instructor at our Kosama Altoona location - we were able to hold her down from her workouts just long enough to ask her a few questions:

 

What made you decide to teach at kosama?

Jill:  It's the easiest thing in the world to find a good reason NOT to go to the gym.  I wanted to help people find a love for working out - like I did at Kosama.  I love to help people achieve their fitness goals...and to see them go from doing a level 1 exercise to a level 3 challenge.

 

What Motivates you to teach others?

Jill:  I try to focus on helping to make each person a little better than they were the week or month before.  I challenge my classes to make themselves better every day.  I love to help people make themselves more fit and live a healthier lifestyle through exercise and nutrition.

 

What is your favorite Kosama exercise or workout?

Jill:  My favorite Kosama exercise is Burpees!  I love to challenge myself and others to see how many I can get.  My favorite Kosama workout is KosamaPOWER.  I love it because the workout is designed to build muscle while still getting in a great cardio workout as well.  I also like the burn of that workout as it builds up.

 

I've been doing the Kosama for the last 2 years and love how the program changes monthly to target different muscles.  The program has challenged me from day one and is STILL a challenge!  Kosama has changed my life; I went from a 265lb girl to a 150lb athletic nerd. I was able to complete a sprint triathlon, something I've always dreamed of doing. It is now a passion of mine to help our members get the most out of their workouts, to achieve their fitness goals, and have fun while doing it!

 

Thank you Jill Meyer for your energy and commitment to the Kosama team!
