JD’s journey started in January 2008 at 235lbs. He made the commitment to himself, to lose 50 lbs., and to gain better self-confidence. Many classes and a year later he surpassed his goal and lost 85 lbs. A year later, he decided to become an instructor. He has worked at several studios which have worked to better his style, sense, and delivery. He instructs for a multitude of reasons, but the strongest and most apparent reason is CONNECTION. JD wants to connect with others who have similar goals using his motivation, music, and message. His class is essentially a rave pep rally one week prior to the championship game. Think house music + dubstep + meeting with your psychologist. It’s fantastic, witty, scary, and you won’t want it to end.
