Staff High Five: Jordan Watson

We say it with pride quite regularly, our amazing staff in corporate and senior living fitness centers are what help us serve our clients so well. Their strong educational background in health and fitness helps us set the bar high while their exceptional creativity and relationship building skills allows them to keep their members engaged and asking what’s coming next. Since we have the privilege of getting to know our staff across the country, we thought our followers might like to as well. Join us monthly as we throw a different NIFS team member a High Five.

  • Name: Jordan WatsonJWatson
  • City, State: Harrisburg, PA
  • Years with NIFS: 3.5 years
  • Position: Fitness Center Manager
  • What brought you to NIFS: I was looking for professional growth within the fitness industry and NIFS provided an opportunity for growth with the flexibility and support for creativity. I felt that NIFS as an organization provides tremendous support for their staff to better serve the clients.
  • What is the most impactful moment you have shared with a member: There was one member who was a college-athlete. She used to run track, and her alma mater was putting together an alumni track and field event.  In a group fitness class, she mentioned that she was training for the event and was nervous to compete.  I offered to do an ExRx with her to focus her training and help her feel confident enough to compete.  I’m passionate about sports and I also ran used to run track so I was excited to help her on her quest.  The event was canceled just days before, which was disappointing, but the member made sure to come back to me and express her appreciation for my help.
  • What separates a NIFS fitness pro from the rest: I think what separates a NIFS fitness pro is the educational resources. With passionate and certified fitness professionals, we are able to provide our clients with the education and tools they need to succeed now and in the future. Not just encourage lifestyle changes but educate on how to achieve positive change.
  • What is your favorite thing about working at your client site: My favorite thing about working at my client site is the level of care the client has for their employees’ health and wellness. They value our expertise and trust us to perform our duties, which makes it easier for us to have a positive impact on our members.  We coordinate with other departments on a variety of health and wellness related events. The client really shows that their employees’ health and wellness is a priority.
  • What motivates you: What motivates me is knowing I’m making a difference.  Not my success story, but hearing our member’s success stories and watching them make positive strides in their health.  Just knowing that what I am doing has an impact on someone else motivates me.
  • What is your favorite hobby: My favorite hobby is just being around my kids. Running with them, playing games.  The more active they are becoming, the happier I am.
