Courtney J

Certified Barre and Bounce Instructor and Personal Coach

I got hooked on barre classes when living with my family on the Northshore of Chicago where I attended classes at The Dailey Method. I became a certified instructor in 2015 and have been teaching since.


After 10 years of Pilates, years practicing ballet, and skating, I have a unique understanding of the body, fitness, and music. I moved back to Ohio in 2017 with my husband, Eric, daughter, Caitlin, and son, Pearce.

Opening my own studio is a dream in the making! The Wright Barre offers traditional barre classes, will also introduce barre/bounce (rebounder) classes as well as an intense cardio bounce class.


The Wright Time, The Wright You, The Wright Barre!

Halley F

Jody’s passion for movement began in elementary school as a student of classical ballet at Cleveland City Dance.  Jody continued to dance through high school and even took classical ballet in college.  Jody’s entry into group fitness happened when she was invited by a friend to attend an aerobics class at the University of Wisconsin, Madison Athletic Center.  Fast forward 7 years Jody moved back to Cleveland to attend CWRU for a Masters in Art Education. She simultaneously became a certified group fitness instructor and began teaching classes at the Mandel JCC where she has continued to teach for 23 years.

In 2010 Jody followed her longtime dream of putting more energy toward a career in fitness. Jody’s passion for teaching others and sharing useful and impactful information as an educator, leader, and coach lead her to dive headfirst into a full-time career in fitness.

Just Train Personal Training LLC was born in 2010. Jody spends most of her time with private, semi-private, and corporate clients. She loves the dynamic energy of teaching group classes. Jody became Exhale Barre certified in 2017 and is excited to be “back at the barre” teaching both Barre and Barre Bounce at The Wright Barre. What Jody loves most about barre is how it complements all other forms of exercise and fitness focusing on proper alignment, flexibility, and accessing the core muscles from the inside out. This method unlike others I have experienced is safe coming from a place of integrity and deep physiological purpose to every movement.

Jody’s personal indulgence consists of Crossfit training and competitions, SPARTAN racing, trail racing, and trail running with her Goldendoodle Charlie.

Jody’s group fitness experience has included the Mandel JCC, Lifetime Fitness, Winds of Change, Evolution Yoga, TMove, Beechmont Country Club, and Cleveland Barre. She also volunteers fitness services for several fundraising and corporate events.

Over her 30+ years in the field of fitness, she has embraced that there is nothing better than movement over the lifespan to enhance one’s physical and mental acumen. She is a Barre Certified teacher through Exhale Spa and a 400+ hour certified Yoga Teacher. Combined with her years of fitness training and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing, her knowledge of body mechanics, kinesiology, physiology, and anatomy blend together to culminate in a spot-on barre class that is thoughtful and thorough. Sprinkle in inspiration, levity, laughter, and upbeat, music and you have a classic Susan-style class.
