    What are your certifications/qualifications?

    CanFitPro Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer, JOHNNY G (Mad Dogg Athletics) Spinning, Keiser Spinning, LesMills Programs:  BodyPump, BodyStep, BodyAttack, BodyFlow, RPM.  CPR, First Aid and AED.

    Why did you become an instructor?

    From a very young age I had a passion for health and fitness.  It wasn't until I moved from Toronto to Vancouver fresh out of high school that I decided to take a course and learn how to actually teach classes rather than simply attend them.  I saw an ad saying that the YMCA was hosting a certification course and I thought it would be a fun way to try it out, meet people who shared a passion with me and spend a weekend working out.  Little did I know, that here I would be 16 years later still teaching and loving fitness!

    What is your personal philosophy on health and fitness?

    I believe in a total, complete healthy lifestyle - of whole living in all aspects of one's life - physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Each aspect affects each other and therefore works with each other. When a person is in great physical shape, they feel great, and more effectively handle life and get the most out of their life. When a person is up, they feel more confident, have more energy, do more things, they accomplish and achieve more, & the more successful they become.

    What type of music do you put on during your classes?

    Musically I tend to gravitate to trance and electronica.  I find the energy in this music often inspires me during the tough parts and provides a good beat to find a hard working groove.  Having said that, I do recognize that not everyone loves type of music so as a new years resolution, I have promised myself to try and mix up my tunes a little more.  I have already done a Rock N Roll Ride this year!

    What can customers expect when they take a class with you?

    Customers can expect fun, creative, consistent classes from me.  I make it my goal to work people hard, but also have fun while doing it.  My classes are social, challenging yet doable for everyone!  I encourage people to listen to their bodies first and me second.  We support one another and have made friends in the process.

    What activities do you enjoy outside the studio?

    I feel incredibly fortunate to say that I feel fulfilled and rewarded in all aspects of my life.  The highlight of my days is my family.  My husband Dave and I have been blessed with 2 sons, Kieran and Quinn.  I love my role as a wife and Mum.  We spend much of our time together laughing, biking, wandering High Park, playing games, reading, cottaging and just being silly.  When I'm not working out or hanging with my family, I am a school teacher at a private boys school not far from here.  I truly feel that I have the best job in the world, working with incredible boys, families and colleagues!  I have recently been asked to be a Lululemon ambassador (Sherway location) which allows me to spend time getting to know people in that community as well.  I am looking forward to all the adventures ahead!
