Coming from an athletic background I've been in fitness all my life! My journey started in Vancouver B. C. with Soccer, Judo, Boxing, Karate, Swimming, Running, Mountain biking, and pretty much any sport I could fit into my school studies.
My interest in Nutrition began when I became "lactose intolerant." I started studying natural ways of taking care of my digestive health and not too long after I was hired at a local health food store "Vital Planet." (At that time I studied supplementation, nutrition, biochemistry and biology.) When working at Vital Planet I was introduced to RenewLife Canada. (RenewLife carries a great line of products to help people with digestive issues.) I worked for Renew Life Canada as a product demonstrator and consultant for close to four years.
After a few years of working with holistic studies, I started taking sports, rehabilitation, and fitness courses. I soon fell into Personal training and became a Personal trainer at Goodlife Fitness. I had developed a name for rehabilitation, weight-loss digestive care and enjoyed helping people live free of pain and restriction. At Goodlife Fitness not only did I work with a vast amount of client business and gain experience; my studies amped up to an even greater level! It didn't take long for me to climb the ladders and attain a Level 4 trainer status.
After spending 3 years with Goodlife Fitness, I decided it was time to grow and seek out other avenues, which led to me to "Verity" a beautiful all women's private membership club nestled in an old chocolate factory in Toronto. I spent 6 years working with some of the most prestigious, talented career women I know today and I'm grateful for the experience. I specialized in physical rehabilitation, weight-loss, digestive care and immune function, nutrition, fascial stretch therapy, (FST) TRX Bootcamp, and program periodization.
During that time I started my own business, what an amazing journey it's been so far! I've finally reached that moment in my career that I've been working so hard for. I've been in the business for 13 years now, and I am still loving it!
There's nothing more satisfying than seeing your client succeed, and I get to be there alongside helping them throughout the amazing process!
My clients include rehabilitation, weight loss, muscle gain, athletes, seniors fitness, digestive healing, hormone balance, immune repair, nutrition, and lifestyle coaching. I work with a high amount of rehabilitation clients some of which include: scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, kyphosis, lateral hip shift, lumbar and other back issues, piriformis syndrome, bicep tendonitis, brachial plexus injury, cervical spine injury, rotator cuff issues, frozen scapula, knee issues, joint imbalances and many more.
I hope this gives you a better idea of who I am and how I can help you on your journey. Thank you for reading and hope to see you soon!
What is Periodization?
Periodization is one of the most important concepts in training and planning. This term originates from "period" which is a portion or division of time into smaller, easy-to-manage segments, called phases of training. It is important to switch training modalities every 6 to 8 weeks to prevent injury and plateuing.
