ASI Trainer Jordan Helms featured on KU Athletics.com !

We’re super proud of one of our trainers, Jordan Helms.  Jordan is a member of the KU Women’s rowing team and last season, she helped race the First Varsity Eight to earn Big 12 Boat of the Week honors.

Below is an excerpt from the article on Jordan. We invite you to read the full text here.

“One of these other professionals in the field that Helms has learned from is the owner of Lawrence’s Athletic Strength Institute and mentor to Helms, Chris Dellasega, who argues that many strength and conditioning coaches have very similar approaches to various sports at different levels of competition. Dellasega says what sets Helms apart is her foundational knowledge, in addition to her hands-on experiences.

“You have to factor in that Jordan is a people person, she has an athletic background and she’s approaching strength and conditioning from a different perspective because she’s had exposure outside the collegiate setting,” Dellasega said. “I think that’s something that is very important for a lot of athletes and strength coaches –  getting outside experience, by that I mean outside of what they’re used to. Experience that is completely outside of the box.”

With prior experience at another gym in Lawrence, Helms joined Dellasega’s team this year as a trainer. Currently, Helms focuses on coaching high school athletes with hopes of playing at the collegiate level in both one-on-one and small-group settings.   We invite you to contact us and speak with Jordan about your fitness and athletic goals.
