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.

  • Stott Pilates Mat (Level Beginner to Advanced) 2006
  • Indoor Group Cycling 2009
  • Fit Flow Yoga (Level 1) 2013
  • CPR/First Aid

I was born and raised in Abbotsford, attended Abbotsford Junior and Senior. I lived in Vancouver for 2 years while I went to Langara College to complete my Nutrition Management diploma, which led me to a career with Fraser Health at Surrey Memorial Hospital operating an offsite kitchen.

I started taking group fitness classes to help me get back in shape after not being active while going to school and working. The classes and instructors were always so motivating that I found myself moving from the back corner to the front row as I got stronger and felt better about myself. I was lucky enough to be part of a group who were asked to take the group fitness course through Douglas College and become a fitness instructor.

I have been so fortunate to have so many great mentors in my fitness career that have lead me to get further specialty training. Indoor cycling, Stott Pilates, and Yoga and most recently TRX Suspension training. I have been teaching since 2000 and it is such a good feeling to help the participants meet their fitness goals.

I currently live in Abbotsford with my husband (and 2 cats). In my spare time I love to ride and walk outside, read, knit and crochet.

SPECIALTIES IN TRX:

  • Qualified TRX Team Level 2, 2014

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.

Working out at TNT Fitness for the last 2 years taught me that there are few things that I could be as passionate about as helping others to improve themselves and reach their goals through becoming a fitness instructor. As I continue to improve, I want to help others to do the same through building a positive relationship and sincerely motivating everyone I meet. I’m currently working towards getting my full certification and learning from TNT as I do so.
