ISSA Certified Personal Trainer
From an early age I have been passionate about sports and fitness. My competitive drive led me to succeed as an athlete in bodybuilding, wrestling, and football. Over the years, I’ve been in numerous gyms and have watched people make many different mistakes, also making many of my own. I’ve learned how to correct these mistakes not only through textbook knowledge, but most of all experience. There is a lot to learn within the fitness industry, even on a professional level. Specializing in physique sculpting, and post-physiotherapy instruction leaves no room for error. By understanding the biomechanics of the human body, we are able to ensure the highest functioning level of everyday living. My goal is to encourage and challenge clients to feel stronger and more confident, while ensuring safety during every session. By providing professional guidance, I can teach individualized programs build around realistic goals.
ISSA Certified Personal Trainer
As a personal trainer and figure competitor, I have a strong passion for the transformational value of fitness. I know firsthand the dramatic effects a healthy and active lifestyle can have on the quality of our lives. Self-confidence and one’s outlook on life can improve by setting and achieving goals. I have been involved in the fitness industry since 1998, and a certified personal trainer since 2003. In that time I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of clientele from beginner exercisers to fitness competitors. It is with a positive attitude and excitement I train and motivate clients, challenging them to reach and surpass their fitness goals. Every client is unique and should be trained to their specific goals, needs, time frame and current physical ability. We must always remember the importance of healthy eating in conjunction with a strong workout plan. There is no secret at all, just hard work and consistency with food intake that reflects your particular goals. Energy and persistence conquer all things.
Health & Fitness Promoter – Diploma
My passion for fitness began early in life. Throughout my elementary and secondary years, I was actively involved in all sports – basketball being the highlight. After high school, I decided to enroll in the Health and Fitness Promotion program at St Clair College, as I was eager to study more in depth about how the human body works. While at the college, I had the privilege of playing four years of varsity volleyball, until graduating in 2018. My athletic experiences motivated me to set personal goals around the areas of fitness, flexibility, strength, and endurance which in turn, sparked a desire to share my knowledge and help others. Through my schooling and hands-on experience in the field, I have gained the skill set necessary to work with people of all ages. I currently specialize in sport specific program design and training – adult and youth athletes alike. It is important to have a proper blueprint to create that edge, whether it be improving overall strength, speed, vertical jump, agility, or explosiveness needed for a sport. I strongly believe everyone has the potential to improve on all aspects of life, including Health and Fitness.
