I am a yo-yo dieting expert. Not because of any courses I took or any certifications I have, but because I lived it.
Through my twenties, I went from being
over-weight and unhealthy to then being a complete fitness fanatic with a six-pack, recording every gram of food I ate, and
then after my first baby, back again - plus add a few layers of stress. None of these were life-styles I enjoyed.
I've gone through
almost every diet, program and yes, even diet pills available. I may have lost a few pounds here and there, and even said
the words "I'll never gain it back again" but NOTHING gave me the permanent solution I was looking for.
My biggest low came in my early 30s, a couple years after my
daughter was born. I was roughly 40lbs overweight and my self-esteem had hit rock bottom.
I had absolutely no energy to play with my daughter and my health and spirit were at all-time lows.
I would joke that my closet looked like a department store because
of all the different sizes but I was devastated and embarrassed that I had let myself get so run down and out of shape.
that I couldn't keep going on this way. My attitude and health were affecting my family. Something had to change.
"I was watching my life zoom past me and I didn't want to waste any more time being unhealthy."
to exercise on a regular basis and generally started paying more attention to what I was eating, without the craziness I was
doing before. And I read ... A LOT.
I then acquired an accountability coach who I
checked in with on a regular basis. Within a matter of weeks, my energy was improving and the weight started to come
off - with no counting of calories at all ... I was thrilled!
I won't lie and say it was easy because it certainly was not. But
because I was doing this the sensible way, I wasn't feeling deprived or exhausted.
Best of all, it was
"Deep inside I knew I wanted to help other people live
healthy and happy lives."
The biggest inspiration came about 6 months later in early 2007 when I was working out
in the local gym. I was meeting a lot of fitness instructors and trainers because I was so incredibly interested in what they
did for a living. One of them asked me why I didn't train people, "because I obviously knew my stuff". I first
brushed it off, laughted and said no, "I could never train other people."
I went home that night and asked myself, "Why can't I do this?!?" I do love everything fitness and the
thought of helping other people certainly appealed to me. It was a sense of purpose I was craving.
At that point I decided to get certified
and I've never looked back!
And it just kept getting better from there...
I opened my own business in 2010 and
knew that it had to be something that could make a difference. Yes, it was about helping people losing weight and getting strong, but it had to be more than that ... I had to be more than that.
The dream quickly turned into one-on-one personal training sessions
and small groups, grew with the addition of Stroller Fit Classes, Mom & Baby Classes, Fitness Boot Camps,
Prenatal Fitness Classes and Workshops.
In 2011, the online program was launched and since then, I have helped hundreds of people, just like you, learn what it takes to be healthy and fit. The
results have been outstanding and I am now working with people all over Canada, helping them discover that boundless
energy, trim and strong muscles and a strong body and mind is achievable for everyone!
is more important than still being allowed to live a normal life."
I have something unique that many
trainers out there don't have. I've been in the shoes of the majority of my clients. I'm STILL in those shoes at times so
I totally get it when someone tells me they are tired or their day got away from them and before they knew it, they were falling
I am a busy mom of three (13, 6 and 4!), I have a busy career, I love food,
I don't always love to exercise and sometimes preparing meals is just too much work when you are trying to get everyone out
the door to their activities. I get it!
But I also know that in order for you to lose weight and keep it off, you have
to find something that really works for you.
So it became
my mission to put together programs that would work for real people with real lives so you can find REAL RESULTS.
"I simply LOVE helping people reach their goals."
Over the last 10 years, I have studied from
some of North America’s top personal trainers, nutritionists, and doctors to create my programs, including the one-on-one sessions, small groups,
fitness classes and the popular Online 8-Week Body Transformation Challenge.
Through training and coaching hundreds of people,
I've created some of the most
effective systems to help
you melt fat away and create a tighter physique, without spending hours in the gym or leaving you hungry. Win-Win!
I teach are ones that will maximize
your results while allowing
you to eat real food and spend time where it matters the most, with
I consistently see clients generate amazing results. They discover that shaping their body is realistic and doesn't have to be difficult. They discover they can exercise
safely and overcome injuries. They discover that with consistent work and accountability, they can have more energy and strength
then they knew was possible.

who enroll in my programs notice, even after only the first few weeks, their energy levels increasing while their
waist line shrinking. But more important than anything, they notice their moods getting better and they are feeling better
about themselves....they feelempowered!
So even if you have never tried to lose weight before,
you've been stuck in this rut for a long time, or you have tried every diet out there, my programs, my accountability and
a kind but firm kick in the butt can get started on the right track now.
And now here we are approaching September 2017. Throughout the summer I look at what I
have done the last year and how I want to move forward. I have a couple new plans for myself personally and my business in
the works and I'll keep you posted on my news page and social media pages for sure. I'm excited to see where the reminder
of 2017 takes us - and I do hope we'll be doing this together. Each summer I write a new mantra that will be the foundation
of everything I do going forward over the following year. This year is ...
SPREAD LOVE ♥ FOCUS ♥ SELF CARE ♥ EMPOWER!
I can't wait join you on your journey!
