ACE Personal Trainer, Holistic Nutritional Consultant, Group Fitness Instructor

I am an ACE Certified Personal Trainer and a Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant. My inspiration to pursue a career as a Health and Fitness Professional originated from many years as a competitive athlete in Cross Country running and Track & Field.

As a Trainer, I am goal – oriented and results driven. My areas of focus are functional strength training, general wellness, weight loss, injury prevention and nutrition.

My approach is holistic by considering all aspects of a client’s life and acknowledging the mind – body connection. I believe that proper exercise, nutrition and mindset are the keys to success of the individual and all need to be considered for overall health improvement and prevention of disease. On a physical level, I believe our bodies were designed to move everyday and that we should train in a way that’s functional, so we can perform daily activities more easily and without injury. I like to develop effective programs that are progressive and challenging, yet fun to help you achieve your goals.

As a health professional I want to share my passion and knowledge, and to educate you on the long – term benefits of staying healthy. My goal is to challenge, motivate and inspire you. Whether you are new to fitness or looking for a coach to push you further, I want to support and encourage you on your journey to reach your full potential!

My additional certifications include TRX, Kettlebell, Resistance Training, and Indoor Cycle. I also hold my diploma in Natural Nutrition from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. On my free time, I enjoy strength training, hiking, biking, and yoga.

Mindful Eating for a Healthier Lifestyle

November 17th, 2017|0 Comments

As the pace of our lives speed up, so can the pace at which we consume food. Our hectic schedules can have us eating on the go while also engaging in conversations or texting and emailing on our phones. At times it may even feel like there’s simply not enough time to stop and enjoy a meal. With so much going on, it can be easy to shift to auto-pilot when it comes to eating.
