I have been a personal fitness trainer for the past decade. I was a jack of many trades before, but after healing from a life-threatening injury, I was inspired to assist others in the same way that I helped myself. The accident caused a serious brain injury. I could no longer walk, talk, or function on any normal level. In fact, the physicians questioned if I would ever walk or effectively process thought patterns again.

I had to relearn everything. Mentally, I was child-like and had the capacity of a 6 to 8 year old, but, physically, I was in the body of a 30-year old. I felt like Tom Hanks in ‘BIG’. It was a long, hard road, but we always learn the most when we are faced with hardship. I gained so much insight, and learned to appreciate what most of us take for granted—the ability to just live and to purely survive. The saying, ‘you don’t know what you have until it’s gone’ is very true.

The rehabilitation process was grueling and incredibly humbling, but I pushed my body and mind, attaining the unthinkable. In total, I was in the hospital for three months, and my body weight dropped from 230 pounds to 185 pounds. When I was released, I started going to the gym twice a day just to strengthen my basic muscles. Before you know it, I was back at 230 pounds, but a better me, topping the charts at 230 pounds with lean muscle mass.

I refer to myself as an example of how anyone can overcome their challenges. Since then, I have devoted my life to health and fitness.

I am passionate about pushing past personal percieved barriers to fitness such as age, size and mobility to realize ANYONE can, with a little effort and commitment, realize taht health and Fitness is less about the destination and more about the journey.

My fitness journey started a few years back when I realized I was not getting any younger and wanted to keep up with my eight children! I had always enjoyed working out and running had become a passion but after a chronic injury left me wondering what to do next, I discovered some NO SWEAT classes at the local gym were fun, challenging and kept my interest.

I coerced my husband and family to join me at tiems and eventually wanted to take it to the next level so found myself taking soem more serious training which evolved into full Personal Trainer Certifcation.

Not long after completing the certification I added a TRX Suspension Training workshop lead by none other than Tag Dundas. I was hooked ans started attending Bootcamps in the early morning. Well, I found the results were amazing. Tag, as a trainer was most encouraging and I definitely found thatn even an older person could discover a greater level of fitness than I had experienced in the 20 years prior.

After accepting the opportunity to join Tag at the TNT Fitness as a Group Trainer I have never looked back. There is even more enjoyment in participating and encouraging others to achieve their better health and fitness and realize their is a lot more potential in each of us than we realize.

Recently, I completed a Tough Mudder and along the journey have a new found passion for trail hiking the local hills and enjoyment of the outdoors.

I am grateful for the opportunity to be involved with TNT Fitness as it has led to building wonderful relationships, discovering interesting ways to make fitness fun and challenging and most of all, to be able to share the infectious enthusiasm with others.

“Whether you think that you can, or you think you can’t, You’re right!”

“Nothing worth doing is easy!”

By the age of 26 I had undergone multiple surgeries. Knee surgery, Hernia surgery,  and then having Hip surgery + Back surgery within a 6 week span in 2016. I ended up getting hooked on the Painkillers that were prescribed for the recovery and, with another Back surgery looming, I knew I had to make a serious change in my habits and my lifestyle and take control of my own life. I started attending classes at TNT FITNESS in October of 2018, never having done a group fitness class before, with the goal of strengthening my body and mind. I needed to find purpose and a place where I could surround myself with positive like-minded people. From simply being a client, to taking out the trash, to sanitizing the equipment I slowly became an official part of the team at TNT. Flash-forward 6 more months and I am in the best shape of my life and becoming a certified Personal Trainer myself.

Ive learned that you can never ever count yourself out!

That sometimes its when our backs are up against the wall that we achieve what we may have thought was impossible. I truly believe i have finally found my calling in life helping people improve themselves and become their best versions. I am blessed to be in the position I am in and want to continue to give back and help others to the best of my abilities while also learning and growing into the man i was meant to be.

“The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me? ”
“Own it.”
“Fitness is about so much more than exercise. It’s a catalyst for positive changes, and it affects every aspect of your life”

Hey! My name is Louise Salitra and I LOVE what I do. My passion stems from over 6 years’ experience in the fitness industry as a trainer, nutrition and wellness coach. I hold a certification through the CFES specializing in corrective exercise and with a focus on functional biomechanics, postural correction and natural wellness. I have worked with a diverse client base ranging from newbies to CrossFit crazies and those back to work or life after injury or illness – all with one goal in mind: to help you achieve your fitness goals through functional movement, accountability and maximum form and efficiency …. And to help you find joy through fitness… So maybe 2 goals!

I believe that ‘adulting’ can be hard, aaaand sometimes… it simply sucks. Life’s responsibilities and over-scheduling gives way to poor posture and movement patterns, fatigue, sugar addiction and negative self-chatter and personal neglect.

I want to use fitness to help you find your joy and reignite your passion for life. Lift heavy things – feel your muscles – find your breath – break personal barriers – practice self-compassion!

There is nothing more powerful than a well earned sweat at the end of a workout. You did it for you.  Let’s shape you, build muscle, lose the excess weight, gain energy, eat for nourishment and feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.

“Its not about perfect. It’s about effort.
When you bring that effort every single day,
that’s when transformation happens.
That’s when change occurs”

My journey to a healthy balance of fitness In my life began in 2013.

After attending classes for a year, my instructor encouraged me to take a training, and I became a licensed Zumba Fitness instructor.
I learned that creating a class where people felt empowered to further their own fitness journey’s was something that brought me joy.
While instructing Zumba Fitness classes, I met Tag and was introduced to TNT Fitness.

TNT taught me that I am stronger than I ever thought I could be.

It’s a surreal feeling to be a trainer with TNT, getting to pay forward the growth I received by helping others to
become the best versions of themselves, and to show them that they are stronger than they ever thought they could be too.
