CCA CERTIFIED CHEER COACH
JESSICA ZOO CHRISTENSEN
CCA CERTIFIED LEVELS
I have always been passionate about cheerleading, fitness and human performance. However, the world of cheerleading took me on an adventure I never thought would be possible.
It all started in 2008, the year I had a big idea in a small dance studio by launching Cheerobics: a fun fitness workout with pompoms, capturing the imagination of thousands of participants worldwide, including some big names like Dr. Oz and countless TV shows and fitness magazines.
Since 2008 we have grown into a team of experts, and I have dedicated every waking hour to the understanding and education of cheerleading as a sport, conditioning and fitness to develop cheer conditioning workouts, team conditioning, workout plans, skill drills, sports physiology, nutrition, sports performance seminars and articles, visual guides, fun fitness ideas and sideline choreography.
In 2017 we relaunched as the CheerConditioning.Academy - an online community and education centre dedicated to providing high-quality cheer conditioning videos, articles, support, sideline choreography, and tons of free workouts brought to you by our panel of experts.
In 2019 we were accredited by the United States Centre for Coaching Excellence for our world-class CCA Gold program, a collection of 12-course modules culminating in a Sports Performance Cheer Coach accredited award.
In 2021, Body Before Skill - born and bred in the cheer environment, flew with its wings into new horizons and became our new umbrella organisation for a holistic approach to multi-sports and fitness training.
Nowadays, you'll find me writing, teaching coach seminars, researching, learning, and most probably wondering through the wilderness.. but let's face it, I LOVE the moments where I get to reunite with coaches and athletes in a cheer gym!
It's been one long journey that keeps on going...!
MY EXPERIENCE AS A CHEER COACH
MY TRAINING EXPERIENCE WITH CHEERCONDITIONING.ACADEMY
If you think going through the twelve-course modules (and the four specialisation courses with INTENSITY, CHEER PRO and BODY BEFORE SKILL) and reading BODY BEFORE SKILL Training Method is a good chunk of work...
.... you should have been there in the making!! Ten years of tirelessly working towards the development and creation of all our content, all I can express is gratitude to our wonderful team who has been there since day one:
Passion, dedication (and sleepless hours) have been poured into CheerConditioning.Academy - so thank you for taking an interest in finding out more about the people who made it happen!
I am now firmly planted in the Swiss Alps and hosting coaches retreats, but I'm always eager to consider gym visits as part of my travels!
