CCA's MISSION: CheerConditioning.Academy is committed to quality coaching education for the sport of cheerleading and beyond. Whether you are a recreational, sideline, school or all-star cheer team: our mission is to maximise your potential through quality education, cheer-specific sports performance and conditioning. #BodyBeforeSkill 

Our #BodyBeforeSkill philosophy

#BodyBeforeSkill is the philosophy and coaching method we have developed at CheerConditioning.Academy to ensure the body is ready as a solid foundation before skills are build upon it, to ensure the safety and prolonged success of cheerleaders. The aim of #BodyBeforeSkill aim is to set a strong foundation for building more resilient, trainable and high-achieving athletes through better body awareness.

 

OUR OBJECTIVES:

Engaging Education: Education is not only necessary for the welfare and successful of athletes: it’s an opportunity to broaden our minds.Our focus is on creating an engaging learning experience that helps athletes and coaches directly apply sports performance theory into practice. 

International Inclusivity: Cheerleading is a sport that counts 4 million participants worldwide, with a majority of female athletes. Most cheer teams are in remote areas with little access to guidance, expertise and education. Our focus on an enriched e-learning community enables cheer coaches and teams from even the most remote areas, to access the same level of education as top-level teams from big “cheer cities”.

Peak Performance: Sports performance and conditioning knowledge is not a current requirement of cheerleading coaching education. Our training materials help athletes and coaches achieve peak performance by applying concepts of sports science

Our Story - How It All Began

 

2005 As captain of the RH Tomcats Cheerleaders at University of Royal Holloway, Jessica Zoo starts a weekly fitness class to improve the squads' muscular strength and endurance, and general fitness level.

 

2007 A year after graduating from university, Jessica founds a new cheer team in London (now Zoo Riot London Cheerleaders) and created a weekly fitness class for its members, under the name of Cheerobics.

 

2008 Jessica opens Richmond Dance school, and adds her Cheerobics class to the timetable to add a new & fun fitness class to the schedule and to make cheerleading accessible to everyone regardless of their age or skill level. Jessica quickly discovers that Cheerobics is becoming one of the most popular classes at the dance school!

 

2009 Jessica adds more Cheerobics fitness classes at Richmond Dance, and starts to develop the instructor training syllabus.

 

2010 With increasing demand and popularity, Jessica trademarks the name Cheerobics in the UK. Jessica creates the Cheerobics Instructor Training programme.

 

2011 Cheerobics receives a fantastic response and media exposure within its first few months of launch. We produce the Cheerobics DVD Home Experience, for September release.

 

2012 Cheerobics is all over the media being dubbed as 'the next big thing' - cream of the crop' - 'trend of the year'. Jessica is invited to present the programme at various national fitness events and on a number of TV shows.

 

2013 We expand our range of classes by offering cheerleading dance classes for adults and children. We introduced the CHEER PRO™ cheerleading choreography videos on demand and courses for dance teachers, new coaches and fitness instructors who want to learn more about cheerleading dance and sideline.

 

2014 We train a team of Master Trainers, who helped us spread more cheer fitness around the world! Our #CheerTipTuesday articles start going viral and we grow our online community of followers.

 

2015 We revolutionise our mission, focusing more on the cheerleading industry to help athletes reach their full potential and be less prone injury. INTENSITY™ Cheer Conditioning is born: to push athletes to the best of their abilities, develop their motor skills, power, speed and endurance.

 

2016 We recruit and train a team of INTENSITY™ Master Trainers  stretching across 5 continents, based in LA, Austin, New Jersey, London, Cairo, Manila, Sydney and Santiago. With the release of Jessica Zoo's book: Body Before Skill: Sports Performance for Cheerleading, we launched the Cheerobics Coaches Academy to mentor and train coaches online.

 

2017 We look over at the past 10 years and realise that what we have accomplished goes far beyond pom-shaking and fitness. We make the big jump by rebranding to CheerConditioning.Academy as an online education centre and community: a one stop shop for everything related to cheer fitness, conditioning and sports performance.

 

2018 We go fully digital! After a 6 month transition, we wave bye-bye to our online store of products and DVDs to offer a truly digital online experience that has no limits of international borders!

2019 Keep an eye out for our CCA Certification Modules and some big announcements for the European cheer community!
