Jordan Searcey is fit. Healthy Hudlies is a thing around here, and it’s pretty obvious she’s an active member. She’s a huge asset in any interoffice athletic competition, and eats really nutritious things while the rest of us chow down on catered-in pizza, Chinese and barbecue - delicious, but not as good for you. Which is why we’re so thankful she leads Hudl Bootcamp every Tuesday morning.
Long story short: If Sporty Spice had a spirit animal, it would be Jordan.
“I was born and raised in Lincoln, Neb. My mom, dad, brother, and best friend/college roommate/sister-in-law to-be make up my awesome, loving family. Yes, my brother is marrying my best friend. Can’t complain about spending the rest of your life with your bestie!
“Growing up, I played sports year-round. I don’t know how I didn’t make it to the pros under my dad’s tutelage. From the time I was five, he had me in full pads in the backyard practicing my punt, pass and kick skills; on the basketball court he would slap my left leg hard so I’d remember to go up on that leg for a layup; and he forced me to bat left-handed so I could be one step closer to first base (which has really messed up my golf swing). Here’s an example of my dad. However, I wouldn’t have had it any other way. He’s the best and most supportive person in my world.
“When it came time for college, I decided to make the big move and attend the University Of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I majored in marketing and nutrition science. My junior year, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Australia where I had a five-minute walk to the beach, and lived in a castle (my school was the real life version of Hogwarts). After that, I became what some call a “wanderer,” traveling abroad every chance I got. After graduation, I spent the most memorable months of my life living in Berlin and traveling around Europe, before returning to Lincoln to join the Hudl team and spend my days helping coaches win.”
Girls… (finish the sentence); Boys… (finish the sentence):
Girls is the best show on TV. Boys should watch the show Girls.
What’s the most exciting thing you’ve purchased lately?
Five bottles of wine for my future sister-in-law’s wedding shower. I plan on drinking all five.
What music would play during the opening credits of a movie about your life?
Sweet Emotion by Aerosmith, because it’s the opening credits of the best movie ever made, Dazed and Confused. I feel like I would have done really well in the 70s.
What celeb would play your love interest in a movie about your life?
Keeping with the Dazed and Confused theme: the 1970s version of Matthew McConaughey. Alright, alright, alright! Or really any version of Matthew McConaughey. I’m a sucker for cowboy boots and a southern twang.
Are you an optimist? A pessimist? A realist?
I think I’m an optimistic realist. I can call a spade a spade, but I believe in the potential for it to be transformed into a diamond. Or heart. Or club.
If everyone in the world had to listen to you for one minute, what would you say?
For the love of Pete, stop burning DVDs!
