I have never met a more professional, positive, enthusiastic or dedicated person than Coach Glossop. His commitment to mastering his craft and going above and beyond as a Coach is inspirational. Jordan leads by example, and is a source of motivation for me through his outstanding work ethic, and attention to detail in all he does. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Coach Jordan for the best part of a year, after joining the family at Future Fit.
The decision to join came on the back of several health issues arising from poor lifestyle choices, coupled with several injuries from previous years of competitive swimming. This is where I first met Coach G, and I haven’t looked back since! Jordan took the time to sit down with me and explain the many aspects of training and nutrition that would allow me to achieve my goals, in a simple, considered and clear cut manner.
It is clearly evident that Jordan has a wealth of knowledge and experience that is the core of his advice, and I was more than happy to take on everything recommended and put faith in his methods. In addition to this, Jordan also seamlessly integrated variations to accommodate my injury concerns, and then individually assisted me to develop functional strength in the areas I needed most to stop those injuries setting me back going forward. This is exemplary of Jordan’s willingness to go above and beyond, and a reflection of his professionalism.
Physically I have learnt an enormous amount from Jordan in a relatively short time period about the technique involved in functional movements in strength training. Jordan’s attention to detail shines through here, and has helped me develop the core knowledge and physical awareness that has led to setting PB’s beyond what I had struggled with for years.
Jordan’s training goes beyond the physical exertion in the gym. Jordan has helped me understand the mental aspects of training, developing the right attitudes and approach to training that boost your efforts and allow you to achieve beyond what you thought capable. Not only am I fitter and stronger through Jordan’s training, but I also feel infinitely more positive and capable of achieving whatever it is I set my mind to. This change in perspective goes beyond the gym to everyday life, and for that I am very thankful.
In terms of progress since meeting Jordan, so far I have stripped 5.5kgs of fat through his nutritional recommendations, while also adding 20kg to my Bench Press, and lifting 40kg more than I had ever previously attempted doing Deadlifts. I look forward to continuing to smash goals with Coach G. I am proud to call him my Coach and friend, and cannot recommend him highly enough. Thanks Coach.
