We speak with multi-unit F45 Training franchisee Jocette Mower
Which words or phrases do you most overuse?
JM: “A safe pair of hands” – Running a small business means working with a lot of different people, from builders to social media experts, trainers, lawyers and accountants – it’s so important to find people that you can trust and enjoy working with.
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
JM: Moving to London from Australia when I didn’t know anyone. Starting life from scratch in a new city at the age of 30 wasn’t easy but has been the best decision I ever made. I met my husband, Andrew, who at the time had just retired from an impressive career playing international rugby for Scotland. We’ve evolved a lot since then, and grown closer together through the experience of starting a business.
What is your most treasured possession?
JM: My mother and father bought me an oboe when I was young and it gave me a unique set of skills and taught me so much about dedication and creativity.
What is your most marked characteristic?
JM: Since working at F45, I now can’t stop high-fiving everyone in my life. It’s a habit from after the workouts that I can’t shake.
How would your employees describe you?
JM: My friends have called me Muma Jojo for years now and that’s stuck. I guess I’ve been quite maternal even before I had my kids.
