I am a BCRPA certified Personal trainer & Bootcamp instructor who's love of fitness and sport has inspired me to motivate and coach others in achieving their own fitness success stories! This is my passion, this is what I do, and I know you will see a difference training with me!
I have been involved in sports & fitness as far back as I can remember...I was never a natural athlete though, and had to work really hard at it! That experience and hard work has benefited me in many other ways other than just making me a better athlete...It developed my character and the person that I am today!
As a young teen, I found a friend in the sport of boxing and spent the rest of my teens and early 20's focused on this sport. I competed at the Provincial and National level for several years and learned a lot about physical and mental discipline as well as the kind of determination it takes to be a successful athlete. It was never easy, and the training was tough but I can look back now and see just how much it has taught how me to rise to the occasion facing any kind challenge in my life.
Over the last decade I have been involved in distance running, participating in many organized races including the 2008 Boston Marathon! What an experience that was! I have not only noticed the physical benefits of running, but have found that it can offer a spiritual strength as well. This strength has pushed me to live in the moment of each run through not only the body but the mind as well. It was at this point in my life when I came to realize that health & fitness is where I thrive and that it's truly the profession I need to be involved in.
Working as a Personal Trainer allows me to share my passion and knowledge of fitness and sport! I have also been volunteering as a running coach at the Victoria YMCA for the past 5 years helping people of all running abilities reach their fitness objectives successfully. Having a clear goal and the right training plan is the foundation for a healthy lifestyle. And that's where I come in...
I believe in training outside whenever possible...it energizes the body, awakens the mind and strengthens the spirit- especially on rainy days! So, come and join me, and let me use my experience and continued education in health & fitness to motivate and teach you how to achieve your fitness goals!
Looking forward to meeting you,
