I have always been passionate about fitness training and body sculpting! I worked hard to achieve a muscular body when I was younger and competed in fitness competitions.
A strong body makes us more confident, positive and we possess a greater ability to deal with life’s many challenges. We wear what we want and look great!
As I’ve become older, menopause was another challenge. I use my body sculpting techniques coupled with balancing the body’s nutritional needs to ensure I will stay lean, strong and healthy. I have been able to preserve my muscle density and keep my metabolism active. I welcome the chance to share my knowledge in the multiple benefits of strength training.
I can make fitness fun and can’t wait to share my knowledge in the multiple benefits of strength training!
Even though I have lost and kept off 70 lbs over twenty-three years now, it was not easy. I had to totally adapt a new relationship to food and exercise. After having my fourth child, my weight increased to 240 lbs. Completely disappointed in myself, I felt like such a failure being a size 18 especially when shopping in plus size stores. I knew deep down inside that this size 18 was not my happy and comfortable size. Summers were when I was always feeling self-conscious of showing my arms. Which meant I was limited to certain clothing. If I wore a skirt or a dress, I had to apply baby powder between my thighs in order to prevent a rash from them rubbing together. Going to amusement parks with my kids was not enjoyable. Each time that I would walk up to a different ride, I could feel my body getting hot with the heat of fear of embarrassment rushing over me.
Praying that the safety bar would close, I would squeeze my legs tightly together and waited to hear the click sound to ensure I could fit on the ride. Embarrassing my daughter and myself became a nightmare that I was tired of being fearful of.
I spent many years trying “quick-fix” weight loss methods. Anything from spending hundreds of dollars on pills shakes, visiting weight loss clinics to crazy diets, which were all unsuccessful. I could never seem to effectively lose the weight and keep it off.
I finally figured it out that it was about balance, balance of healthy foods and exercise to maintain a healthy body. Now that I have changed my body and my life, I am committed and capable of helping you achieve your new healthy lifestyle, which will transform your entire life.
Exercise plus nutrition = optimal health & vitality.
Growing up I played many sports and staying active was easy. Once I started university, I maintained a healthy body and mind through strength training and aerobic exercises.
Completing my degree in Kinesiology has taught me about anatomy, muscle physiology, body biomechanics, exercise prescription and injury prevention. I have experience training seniors, cardiac rehabilitation patients, and people with spinal cord injuries and welcome the opportunity to help you conquer your fitness goals! Whether you want to lose weight, or gain muscle mass, no fitness challenge is too big to overcome when you think outside the box and work hard!
