The variation, intensity and functionality of training at Priorityfitness presented a never-ending challenge and increased Jordan's value of proper technique.
This value motivated Jordan to complete his Crossfit Level 1 Trainer qualification so he could help his friends, family and other gym members achieve their fitness goals."
“The best, toughest, firmest and the most challenging opponent for me, is me myself.” For me, the sport/activity is something like coffee for someone else – It’s my source of energy, it is always a good idea and it is a lifestyle. And the same as coffee, it is a drug for me as well. A day without any kind of sport or activity is a day when I lost a game against myself, when I feel incomplete, weird, bad and missing something. To me it is also a cure – when I’m unhappy, worried, upset, angry, disappointed, overworked, I quit all and go for some activity or sport. Since my childhood I have never wanted to be the best in one thing, but I’ve always wanted to be excellent in everything. I’ve always wanted to be self-contained and independent. In my life and in the sport as well. This is why I keep trying new things, new sports, and challenging the limits of my body and mind. My only opponent, good and friendly opponent to be honest, is just me myself. I always run a race, fight or a competition against myself, which helps me pushing myself up. We were born to be active every day since our origin. It is natural, injury-preventive, and healthy for our bodies that can be seen as some kind of a biological machine – and if this machine is not kept moving, if we don’t care about it and if we overlook the issues, it will never work properly, it will never be a reliable companion and it will become prone to a failure. In this way I try to open the eyes of others to listen to their bodies and make them their friends, not enemies. And it is always a pleasure to see other people coming back to a gym not to have perfect bodies or huge muscles, but for a joy of movements and activity, for a daily dose of a drug giving them a feeling of happiness, energy, health and positive attitude to achieve positive results in their lives.

I've always been into all sorts of sports. I was the kind of kid that would try any sport. I completed a Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science at the age of 21 and worked in regular gyms for a few years and soon realised that I wanted to be able to do more and help more people. Whilst studying Sports Science, I was fortunate to discover Chiropractic. The little I knew about Chiropractic was enough to push me into studying a further 4 years. I am now a Dr of Chiropractic. I know with my knowledge about Chiropractic and Exercise Science, I'm going to do great things for people.What first attracted your to Priorityfitness ?
The teams' spirit and motivation is really exciting and I always love to get to work and do my thing. All the individual members/clients of Priorityfitness also bring so much to the whole team. Their motivation to get the results they want is always there.What results have you had training here?
Other than gaining A LOT of strength that I had no idea I could ever have, I have also gained great physical benefits such as losing fat and gaining lean muscle. I have never felt this healthy and fit in my life before and I'm getting stronger every day which feels empowering.What you enjoy most out of coaching others?
I enjoy seeing them push through their regimen and realise they've done something they didn't know they were capable of doing. I also like seeing them be happier and more confident.Favourite exercise?
I love all exercises that I regularly practice and put myself through but if I had to choose one right now, it would be the Olympic Lifts. It utilises so many muscles at once and makes you so strong.Worst exercise?
Hard to answer this but I know what I have to work towards now which is the 'Muscle-Up'!!!Interesting fact about yourself?
My number one goal and objective is to help people achieve optimal health and wellbeing through Chiropractic care. I strongly believe the philosophy of Chiropractic which is the removal of subluxations within the spine and other areas of the body and letting the body do the healing.
I also want to specialise and do further study and research in Sports and Athletic Chiropractic as I have been able to help and assist many people with their sports and/or exercise already.
