Hey there fellow ROCK STAR ! Welcome to my website:)
I’m so glad you have found my website! So here’s my story….I’ve been in the fitness industry for almost 25 years now as a certified personal trainer, pilates instructor, group fitness instructor & yoga instructor.
I’ve done it all in the fitness industry: Built and ran a successful small gym called The Gym on Bowen, located on Bowen Island, BC, owned a pilates/fitness studio, competed in (and won 1st place) in figure competitions, taught step classes in their heyday, participated in tough mudders, ran 1/2 marathons….you name it, I’ve done it!
Previous to the pandemic, I was the Group Fitness Manager at Steve Nash Fitness World for the 3 North Shore locations.
What’s my philosophy?
My clients call me their personal Healthy Living Cheerleader:)
I know first hand as a business owner & a single mother to 3 amazing young women, there are serious challenges involved in finding time to do all the above-mentioned items. Like come on….who are we kidding right? Life goes sideways sometimes (or often). So it thrills me to share my experiences with you with the intent that you can learn from my personal successes, trials & errors.
You see, I’m not perfect. Truth! And I encourage you to opt out of ‘perfect’. Because when we make mistakes and embrace them, is where the real magic happens. I invite you to join me on this healthy living journey in any capacity that works for you. When I’m not working, you can usually find me hanging with my 3 amazing daughters (my greatest teachers), being a student in a yoga or barre class, spending time walking local trails or experimenting with new recipes.
