Jason Appel

WA - Head Coach

Brief history/ experience: I’ve been working in the health & fitness industry for just shy of 10 years now, even in tough times like these I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything else. I’m a huge fan of kettlebell training with the Turkish get-up being one of my all-time favourite exercises.

Favourite Workout (on Home Fitness Network): Results (of course) & Coaching Zone Afterburn

Interesting fact about me: Nearly on the wrong side of 40 – I’m still a staunch metal head, (apparently you’re supposed to grow out of it…. Go figure).

Pursuing greater strength and/ or fitness will make you a more resilient person to deal with the ups & downs of life- in turn, helping you to be a happier person.

Jordan Curran

VIC - Regional Fitness Manager

Brief history/ experience: I began 1 on 1 personal training in 2010 and then started to develop a passion for functional and group training. I believe that all good trainers and coaches should try as many different training styles as possible as there is not just the 1 correct way to train. I am Olympic lifting, functional training, boxing and kettlebell qualified and love incorporating them into my training sessions.

Favourite Workout (on HFN): Super session

Interesting fact about me: I have a chipped tooth from a failed clean and jerk attempt

If you’re feeling flat you will never feel worse after a workout no matter how short it is

Favourite Workout (on HFN): I actually don’t have a favourite, I do love variety, and meeting lots of different members, all with unique goals.

Interesting fact about me: I love music, it’s a huge part of my motivation during training, but unfortunately, I’m not a great singing
