I have been involved in sport my whole life. I played a varsity volleyball in College where I also became the Head Coach for the volleyball team for my province. In College I studied Exercise Science. I also worked as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer while finishing my studies.
My experiences include teaching classes to over 100 people at a time, which was one of the coolest things I ever did. At the college, I was in charge of the school fitness centre as well as being a teacher’s assistant. One of my areas of specialty, is fitness testing. I used to do occupational, athletic, and educational fitness testing. The first was for applicants to a Paramedic College and the Canadian Military. The second was for College, University, and provincial athletes. The third as the head fitness tester for a Canada wide research study on Exercise adherence.
I have worked in many different realms of fitness. The list includes small and large chain gyms, before I took a job at Dalhousie University. I worked there for four years. I was the head personal trainer, taught kettlebell and small group classes, and did lots of fitness testing for the varsity athletes. I also taught a dance fitness class to a very large group of students twice a week. The numbers used to reach 120 people and it shook the floor of the school. I loved the energy. At the University, I did a reoccurring fitness segment on the local news. I also started writing a monthly fitness column for a magazine, which I still do to this day. I became a Lululemon fitness Amabassador in 2011, which allowed me to meet some amazing people in the fitness world. One of them was Kate kendall.
I decided life is short and took a chance on having an adventure in Australia. It brought me to Flow Athletic, which has been the best experience of my life. I love Sydney! It is a city that embraces being healthy and active. I see it at every turn. I continue to learn and grow by working with and helping awesome people. I believe that fitness is a journey. People need to learn to enjoy the experience, not just the destination. Then and only then, will they truly become successful. Everyone can achieve their goals. I just try to give them a little help and make it as fun as possible along the way.
