DESCRIBE YOURSELF AS AN ATHLETE

As an athlete I've always liked to learn new ways to progress and challenge my fitness. Throughout high school and university, I did track and cross-country running. My love for running is what lead me to pursue a career in fitness. Once I started weight training, I decided to compete in 'bodybuilding/figure' competitions. When I did this I stopped running for fear of losing muscle. From there I transitioned into powerlifting and then olympic lifting, this just focused on strength. Again wanting to try something new, I was drawn to crossfit, which encompassed a little bit of everything. As an athlete I feel like crossfit has made me more well rounded in all aspects, and I like that there is always something new to improve.

what can members expect in your class / coaching style

As a coach I like to bring a lot of energy to my classes. I have fun coaching and I want everyone else to as well...even if the workout is brutal. At the same time, I still want to make sure everyone is moving properly. Ive been training for 9 years now, so I have a lot of experience with coaching and teaching movements. My goal is to make sure that all my clients are moving there best, improving and reaching their goals.

THE GREATEST LESSON YOU'VE LEARNED IN THE FITNESS INDUSTRY. 

The greatest lesson I've learned in the fitness industry is that the more you learn the more you realize you don't know. There is so much information and schools of thought that there is always more to know. Thats why its so important to continue learning and keeping up to date with the latest research. Also learning new ways to teach things, and new ways to move, which I believe keeps people motivated.
