A Brief History of In Grand Form
In Grand Form was formed in 1981 as a vehicle to produce classes and develop a video format to encourage size-plus and under-active adults to move. By 1995 the focus grew to include active older adults (both men and women) and women's health, (menopause, pre and post).
Both In Grand Form and Jody's Fitness actively promote healthy eating strategies and focus on programs that are safe, effective and fun. Jody's philosophy encourages people to be happy and healthy no matter what their size or age. In addition to group training, fitness and corporate workshops, Jody coaches individuals in her Personal Fitness Training sessions.
Recognized in the media for her work, Jody has been interviewed by newspapers across Canada, and has appeared on the Life Network, BCTV, in Chatelaine Magazine and on the cover of Fitness Business Canada. Her first video was a Canadian best-seller. Her second video/DVD, "In 2 Grand Form" was released in 1999.
