Jody, Now Fit to Do Job of Her Dreams

"I needed someone to push me."

Jody was confident she could meet the running requirements to join a select government agency after sailing through the academic portion of the application. The other physical demands—strength, agility and defensive skills— were another matter.

No worry. Jody, whose last name and agency aren’t mentioned for security reasons, turned her conditioning over to an athletic performance trainer with Borgess Sports Medicine. Jody began training an hour a day, three days a week, ultimately passing the physical requirements and earning agency acceptance.

“I couldn’t have done it without him,” said the 31-year-old mother of two. “I needed someone to push me . I needed to do things harder than I had and he made me do it.”

The Athletic Performance Program provided Jody with everything she needed in order to meet agency goals. “I could barely nail maybe two pushups when I started,” Jody said. “Now I can do 30. He definitely prepared me.”
