Meet Trailblazer Jordyn Casey

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordyn Casey.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Jordyn. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I moved out to Los Angeles when I was 18 years old to pursue my career in the acting industry. I grew up dancing and have always had an interest in the arts. While pursuing acting and having an interest in movement and fitness, I got introduced to hot yoga and fitness. I instantly fell in love and decided to go through my first teacher training. After being trained in yoga, I auditioned to be an instructor at Set & Flow. From there, I continued my fitness education by being trained in Pilates, Kettlebells, Bootcamp, Boxing, and other forms of group fitness. I started teaching 15 classes a week and loved every moment of it. Towards the end of 2018, I got the promotion to Fitness Director of Set & Flow. I never planned on having a full-time job in the fitness industry, but now that I do I’ve found something that I truly enjoy doing.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
My journey has been anything but smooth. Since I moved out to Los Angeles at such a young age, I had a lot of stuff I had to figure out and not just in my career. It’s a very tough business out here no matter what industry you’re in. There’s a lot of talented people who are all reaching for the same goal. I think one of my biggest struggles is thinking that I HAVE to do something or I HAVE to be a certain type of person. When I came out to LA, I had one goal, acting and that’s it. So, once I started to find some interest and opportunities with fitness, I almost felt like I was doing something wrong because it wasn’t a part of my “big goal.” The advice I would give to young women just starting their journey is that there isn’t going to be one path. You might have a main focus or main goal but there are going to be so many ways to reach that goal. Also, there are going to be times when that goal might change and that’s okay. As long as you are doing it for yourself and you’re happy, you are going to shine so brightly in whatever you do.

We’d love to hear more about your work.
I’m the Fitness Director of Set & Flow in Hollywood. I take care of all things having to do with our fitness department such as the instructors, schedules, teacher training, etc. Along with being the director, I’m also an instructor. I teach every day different classes such as Pilates, Bootcamp, Kettlebell, Boxing, HIIT, Yoga Sculpt, and many more. I would say I’m known for my heated fitness classes like our Hot Pilates Sculpt and our Barefoot Bootcamp. Set & Flow has been open for about three years and continues to amaze me with the clients and instructors we have in our business. I think what sets us apart from other fitness/yoga studios is our community, We pride ourselves on making everyone feel like the space is there home and creating relationships with our clients. Our clients love Set & Flow because we have some of the most unique classes and we create a safe space for change physically and mentally. Set & Flow is my home and I’m extremely grateful for being able to be a part of the Set & Flow family.

Do you feel like there was something about the experiences you had growing up that played an outsized role in setting you up for success later in life?
At a very young age, I started taking dance classes and continued until I moved out to Los Angeles. I think dance played a huge role in creating the person I am today. When you train as a dancer, you have to have the discipline and drive to move forward. I lived in a very small town in Nevada where there wasn’t much to do, I believe dance gave me the inspiration to think bigger than where I lived. I probably would have gotten stuck in that small town with no idea what I wanted to do if I didn’t always have a place to go every day and always have a goal to reach. We would perform shows twice a year and we would also go to different places to compete. Through dance is how I found my love for acting as well. If I didn’t have my dance studio growing up, I think I would be in a very different place right now.
