With a degree in kinesiology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Jordan Marks excels at teaching and training individuals the art and science of functional exercise. As former owner and head trainer at Core Fitness Personal Training, Jordan is skilled in sports specific training, cross-training and transitioning people to a more active, enjoyable lifestyle. He customizes fitness programs for individuals of all ages, fitness levels, and abilities.
Jordan’s exercise programs push limits safely and effectively, incorporating preventative therapy and training techniques that reduce the risk of injury. He notes, “Doing a little daily ‘pre-hab’ helps avoid a whole lot of rehab down the road.”
Utilizing years of personal experience and his expertise in biomechanics, Jordan instructs clients on how to properly execute multi-joint, multi-muscle exercises that prepare the body for dynamic motion—enhancing performance, range of motion, agility, and strength.
His goal is to make everyday activities easier and improve the overall quality of life for his clients. His training philosophy and methods emphasize three key elements:
- Core strength, encouraging balance and correlative function
- Progressive warm-ups and stretching that prime the body and prevent imbalances
- Strength training that encourages natural, efficient action to cooperatively strengthen muscles, bones, and ligaments
Jordan is open to questions and providing guidance on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and is keen to train individuals who are enthusiastic about health and wellness and want to explore the joys and benefits of a dedicated exercise program.
