First of all, congratulations!

If you’ve made it onto my website and you are reading this bio, it means you are on your way to creating the ultimate you. That’s fantastic! Half the battle is finding the right person to work with. The other half is showing up for your sessions and working your butt off!

In this section of the website you will learn about who I am and how I started on my fitness journey. You will learn what’s unique about training with me, my values and beliefs, and hopefully by the end you will be able to make a decision whether you would like to have me as your trainer.

 

My story

The first thing you should know is that, unlike most trainers out there, I was not always fit. I’m not a former athlete and I didn’t do sports all my life.

In fact, I spent most of my life eating really unhealthy food and not gaining an ounce.

So what happened? How did I go from being unfit, unhealthy and not having a problem with it, to becoming a personal trainer?

Well, after having my daughter, my hubby persuaded me into doing an extreme home-based exercise program: P90X.

Little did he know what he was starting! Not only did I really get into it, it became a bit of an obsession. We finished P90X and moved on to other home-based exercise programs. By this time people started to notice. And they started asking questions:

“How are you so fit?”

“How can you possibly look like this after having a baby?”

“What can I do to look like you?”

I really wanted to help answer all of these questions, but all I could tell them was: “We did P90X”. Turns out this recipe, as successful as it has been, does not work for everyone. Some people can’t work out 7 days a week; others are recovering from an injury; some only have 30 minutes.

All I started seeing around me were people with an incredibly strong desire to become active – they just needed a more personalized approach! Something that worked for their unique needs

And so, after exploring many options, I decided to become a personal trainer – a decision that I haven’t looked back on since!

In September 2017, I decided to quit my job in the corporate world (as a marketing project manager) to focus solely on my business. As a former scientist and project manager, I add various elements of my past “lives” to how I work with my clients.
