She's a former Reebok-sponsored fitness model with an infectious personality. He's a former Marketing Director for Gold's Gym and a true fitness pioneer.

Say hello to your new, internationally recognized Super Trainers, Joel and Jericho. Look familiar? They should. Joel and Jericho spent years as Master Trainers for Les Mills and educated thousands of new instructors around the world.

You'll be seeing a lot more of these two. In February, they launched their first #BOD Exclusives; Joel's "8x8" is a high-energy, total-body workout and Jericho's "Half & Half" is a relentless cardio workout fused with yoga.

So, what are their favorite workouts? What do they do on their rest days? Joel and Jericho give us an exclusive peek inside their personal and professional lives.

How did you become a fitness trainer?

"I started as a front desk associate for the prestigious Gold's Gym. Over the years of personal training and teaching group exercise classes, I realized my passion is to inspire others to accomplish their personal fitness goals."

- Joel


"I started teaching dance classes my freshman year in college. Before I knew it, I was certified in multiple formats and training clients. Almost 10 years later, I'm working on the biggest projects of my career with Beachbody!"

- Jericho

Our Coaches love Personal Development books… do you have any favorites?

"'Start with Why' by Simon Sinek."

- Jericho

What's your go-to rest day activity?

"Golf. I've been golfing since I was eight and am always ready for a round or two!"

- Joel


"A good hike or a day at the beach!"

- Jericho

What's your favorite workout?

"My "8x8" weightlifting workout, consisting of 8 different exercises at 8 reps each. For cardio, it's a quick "HIIT" with my favorite boxing and plyometric exercises."

- Joel


"It depends on my mood. If I need to blow off steam or want to work hard, I'll do HIIT cardio or put on my gloves and smash the bags. I also always love to dance."

- Jericho

What can you be found doing on weekends?

"Catching up on laundry and sleep!"

- Joel


"Grocery shopping, meal prepping and lots of laundry. I love to stay active so I take trips to the beach and enjoy outdoor activities whenever possible."

- Jericho

How do you push through fitness plateaus or roadblocks?

"Having a short-term goal makes it easier to keep moving forward. I work towards an event, a vacation, or just take it 30 days at a time."

- Joel


"I usually perform best when the heat is on. Staying positive is key, as well as reminding myself that embracing challenges always makes me grow."

- Jericho

Tell us about some of your exclusive BOD workouts…

"My "8x8" strength training workout is a 25-minute butt-whooper! It allows everyone to go towards the heavier side of their lifting threshold, thanks to the lower reps."

- Joel


"Half and half is an awesome mix of half Cardio and half Yoga. I love it because no equipment is needed and all fitness levels are welcome."

- Jericho

What's your biggest accomplishment?

"Adapting to change. I enjoy new challenges and use them as opportunities to evolve and better myself."

- Joel


"Being a mom. It's brought a new dimension of love and purpose in my life!"

- Jericho
