Ultimate Kick-Ass Shred

Don’t Stop Until You’re Proud

Daily 15-Minute online workout


Daily Motivation, Fun and Discipline

Decide. Commit. Succeed.

Ready to venture out of that comfort zone, drop the excuses, improve fitness, start getting back into shape and take back control of health and wellbeing? Then you’re in the right place.

It’s true, isn’t it, that the crazy events of this year have made it even more difficult for most of us to reach our fitness goals. But what about if we could turn the “lemon” that is 2020 into lemonade by starting a new regular 15-minute fitness, strength and stretching routine that compounds gradually over time.

Keeping motivated and on track for the good of our fitness, physical and mental wellbeing is essential.

And that’s one of the reasons why I started offering a regular 15-minute online workout every morning. We need support, we need motivation, we need to feel part of a community that’s how humans are and that’s why it’s important.

The Secret of Our future is hidden in our daily routine

“Start where you are. Do what you can”.

Just 15 minutes a day is all we need to improve our health, feel better and help us to get back into shape. What’s more, it’s fun! You can look forward to a daily shred that’s simple, down-to-earth and motivational.

Whether we want to get back into shape, improve our fitness or get stronger, starting and maintaining a daily routine is key. So we want to make it EASY!

To ensure success we need to start where we are, do what we can. Getting started and building a short easy-to-do workout into our routine is the only thing that matters at the beginning. Other larger successes will follow, but we have to get started. 

Hi, I’m Jo

I’m a fourty-five-year-old mother of two. I have spent most of my adult life inspiring kids and adults through our martial arts lessons, and have coached taekwondo in the community now since 1996.

The September Shred starts on the 14th. Every day (apart from Sunday) I do a live shred. You can either join me live or do it later in the day whenever you have time. You have all the flexibility you need.

We all take our measurements at the beginning of the shred and again four weeks later when the month ends.

If you want to give it a try, just join the 7-day free trial and see if you like it. If you do, which I’m sure you will, the price for the full month is only £9.95 (no obligation and no prepayments).

  • No gear, do it your pyjamas if you want
  • Take it at your own pace
  • Be part of a group to boost motivation
  • Down-to-earth, for everyone
  • Embarrassment-free zone

Who’s it for?

Anyone can join in, but you’ll probably feel most at home if you’re aged between 40 and 60. I’m edging towards 50 myself now, so you’ll be at home with me.


You just won’t believe what a difference 15-minutes a day can make. Workouts are good for improving mood, boosting energy and getting back in shape. That’s amazing!

Recipes & More

So far the results of my workouts have been really encouraging. I have some great recommendations for you that may just change the way that you think about food forever!

what They’re Saying

What Others Say

I signed up to the summer shred experiment on a whim and I’m so glad I did! I had been wanting to go back to exercising for so long, but was always finding excuses (lack of time, of energy, etc.) I thought 15 minutes a day, that’s easy to fit in, even with the kids around. And it really was! After a month, I’ve more energy, I feel better mentally and physically, and it made me want to do more (hello, July running challenge!).

I really like Jo’s down-to-earth attitude, she suffers with us through the tougher exercises and provides lots of encouragement. There’s lots of punching and kicking in the workouts, they’re my favourite exercises. I got my husband to join, and he’s feeling much better too we’re both looking forward to the July shred!

Before I joined the Ultimate Summer Shred Experiment I was so out of condition and feeling miserable being unable to get in any of my clothes. However, since joining the Ultimate Summer shred Experiment I feel I have more energy and I feel so much more confident to carry on more and more.

As I began to exercise I realised how unfit I was and this encouraged me more. I am a determined person and I like the challenge. The June challenge really spurred me on and Jo’s workouts are doable and I was able to build up my strength day after day.

I now feel I am reaping the benefits with feeling happier in myself and building towards an even bigger and better challenge. Come on July bring it on.

Just want to say a massive THANK YOU to Joanne Graham. She is holding 15-minute fitness classes on Facebook at 10 am. Me and the kids and my sister and nephew have been Skyping and doing the workout together every morning, with varying degrees of success, some tantrums and some injuries, lots of shouting and whingeing but mainly just a sweaty laugh!

It’s keeping us in a routine and keeping us in touch and we want to say thank you a lot. You’re a superstar!

“I have been practicing with their method for the past three weeks. The last time I exercice before was a decade ago, so not the sport guy type… the first week was really hard, but after three weeks of doing the exercice, I am feeling much more energetic and I am feeling much better after each day. It’s only 15 minutes a day, easy to do anytime during the day.”

Bruno Petit-Jean

“The results of this quick hit work out are great I definitely saw results with 2 weeks felt more energised and toned. Was easy to fit 15mins it to the day with a 2-year-old and 6 months old! Perfect for busy mums! Would definitely recommend…xxx thanks Joe”

I stuck with it (most days lol) but that’s the most exercise I’ve done since I hurt my back July last year & it really gave me the bug back!

???? Those 15mins a day pass so fast & have deffo made me feel fitter & healthier & more like the ‘pre back injury’ me.

I’ve lost 2″ off my fat poochy bit below my belly button & 2″ off my waist, I’m guna do some catch-up shreds till Sunday then I’m away for a week but will b back with u after that.

Thanks for making it fun & making me want to get home from work & DO something again ???????? xx

I can’t stress enough how little exercise I was doing before and so what a huge chnage you’ve helped me make! I’d dragged myself through Couch25k but other than that nothing in lockdown at all and I used to say I hated home workouts.

I was embarrassed even to exercise while everyone was at home! Now I’m up most mornings to do it live, or catch up later. I’m probably never going to love exercising but seeing my progress, the group enthusiasm and your encouragement is priceless.

Thanks so much – it’s been fantastic so far. Katie


Only lost half an inch on my thigh & arm but as you say that’s not what it is all about. I’ve committed to this and feeling a sense of achievement from getting every single one of the workouts done. I’m just happy to be active knowing that this will give me a better chance at being healthy for life. ???????????????? x
