I’ve learned to use a gracious, knowledgeable, entertaining, systematic and clear approach when presenting health education. My goal is to provide safe, fun and simple ways to improve everyday movement so that we can live life to the fullest.

"TWO MAJOR AH-HA MOMENTS IN MY LIFE"

  • Listening to multiple Fitness Icon's (like Josie Gardiner, Dr. Chris Proulx, PJ O'Clair, Pete Holman...) over the years all passing the same message to "Remain a student of your craft forever… because no one knows it all".


  • It is human nature to gravitate towards things that feel comfortable to us, or seek out situations in which we excel in. 


MY ADVICE IS TO DO THE OPPOSITE


MY COACHING STYLE WILL MAKE YOU FEARLESS...


WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU WEREN'T AFRAID OF ANYTHING?
