I am super excited to be a part of the Pure Fitness Team! I have been in the fitness industry for over 20 years. My fitness journey started in high school as part of the basketball team. When basketball was done, I was looking for something else to do and found the 20 Minute workout on T.V.  It was not until University that I joined a gym and fell in love with Step Aerobics.  That’s how the fitness bug started for me.  I have numerous certifications and have gone to many fitness conventions over the years and look forward to more certifications. For the past 2 years I have helped with dry land training for 4 travel hockey teams.  Fitness is my passion and I look forward to sharing my passion with everyone!

My experience in health and fitness includes being a personal trainer at a local Goodlife fitness and Refine fitness studios. I have worked with a wide range of people: from teen speed, agility and conditioning camps, to adults just beginning an exercise program. I also bring knowledge from working in a physical therapy clinic. I have helped patients who had sport- and work-related injuries, motor vehicle accidents, chronic shoulder pain, low back pain, hip/knee replacement, plantar fasciitis, fibromyalgia and arthritis. I believe exercise is medicine. My goal follows this idea of helping people improve their overall health through physical activity and exercise. I want to help people enjoy being active by utilizing specialized techniques and exercises to find the best workout for my clients. I look forward to helping others achieve optimal performance, whether for work or play, along with a greater sense of well-being, leading to a healthier lifestyle.

Fitness has always been a big part of my life. Since high school I began exercising at school and in local gyms to put on weight for sports. Although I never became a pro athlete like I had planned, I did however put on the desired weight I had been looking for and it totally changed my self confidence. After working out for a few years and helping others along the way, I decided to obtain my Can fit Pro Cert. Once I had my certification I started working in gyms as a personal trainer. I have since than took nutrition courses at Humber College and at the institute of Holistic Nutrition to go with the personal training. I believe that healthy eating and exercise go hand in hand. I’ve been exercising and working as a personal trainer for over 15 years. I have worked with youths training for sports as well as older people with injuries or health issues. I truly enjoy working with and motivating others to achieve the goals we have set. I look forward to working with you all soon.
