Bio

My passion is to help people change their lives in the simplest and realistic way possible. I believe everyone deserves the right to have good health and being satified with themselves inside and out. I was really skinny and weak when I was in highschool and sickness was always bothering me. I started to go to the gym and my posture was fixed,  immune system was improving and the most important part was that I was being more confident. After graduated from Mcmaster University for Finance, I chose a totally different career path which became a personal trainer. I have helped many of my clients to achieve their goals and fixed their health problem and I will continue to help more people with my skills and knowledges. It is never to late to start exercising and I will help you to reach your goals in a safe and fun way.

Bio

I began my fitness journey 6 years ago with the sole intent to be ‘skinny’. I under-ate and over-exercised, not lifting weights in fear of getting ‘bulky’. I have now won gold medals in bodybuilding, I fell in love with the process of setting goals, putting in the work and surpassing even my own expectations. Throughout my journey I have learnt how to effectively train in the gym, and diet properly to fuel my body based on my goals. I built muscle, developed physical and mental toughness and became confident in my body. The gym has taught me the value of hard work, dedication and believing in oneself. Let me help you see results faster, using a science based approach to show you how to effectively and efficiently eat and train. I always say “work smarter, not harder”. My goal is to have you eating more, exercising less and finally seeing results. Book a complimentary session with myself, I will create a workout program and provide macronutrient advice. Together we will have fun and help you reach your goals. You will feel amazing when you start today.

Im passionate to help individuals to achieve the body they want without food restrictions and hours of exercise. I desire to educate others how to increase metabolism and ditch dieting for life. As a woman who struggled with my own body image and relationship with food, it was a battle with myself and I understand how draining it could be mentally. So it’s my goal to help individuals who are struggling to overcome these issues and educate those to feel confident in their body while also enjoying the foods they love.

As a skinny kid growing up, I wasn’t very confident with others due to my body image. Working out provided a means of self-improvement. As I slowly grew stronger, my confidence rose exponentially. I felt more confident in my more built stature. From then on, I wanted to help others reach the same feeling of satisfaction that I found through exercising. Whether it’s getting toned, losing weight or feeling healthier (etc.), I want to help others reach their goals and feel better about themselves. As a trainer, someone’s goals are just as important as mine. By holding one accountable and building a sustainable program towards their goals/experience, I can introduce them to a new outlook on fitness using my knowledge. With this in mind, it’s only a matter of time until we can build a healthier, more reinforced lifestyle.
