Trainer Jo

Trainer Jo is a 6-degree blackbelt taekwondo master. He became the instructor of the Taekwondo club in university and has been practicing the discipline for 18 years. Raised in South Korea, Trainer Jo grew up in a greenbelt area, under a mountain, and had to walk through nature (no buildings) for 1 hour to go school. He did this every day until he was 10 years old. Trainer Jo has worked in many fields, at age 12 he got his first part-time job as a paper boy. He has also worked at a gas station and was a wedding videographer and had 15 different part-time roles before becoming a personal trainer.  In Korea fitness trainers did not earn a good income so in 2000 Trainer Jo decided to take engineering at Seoul National University of Science and Technology where he earned a Bachelor of Safety Engineering degree.  Throughout university he continued to practice taekwondo and enter competitions and during his sophomore year Trainer Jo sustained a severe knee injury that required him to have surgery. The surgery was not successful, and Trainer Jo entered a rehab program at Samsung hospital where he learned how to strengthen his legs. It was during this time that he became interested in weight training and swimming. Swimming allowed him to strengthen his knee without impact.  It took Trainer Jo 2 years before he was able to fully extend his knee. During this period, he obtained his Lifeguard certification. He weighed only 127 lbs (58 kg) In 2005, when he was 24 years old, Trainer Jo came to Canada for a 1-year Taekwondo Master program.
