To give you an idea of who I am and why I want to help others in reaching their health and fitness aspirations, here is the brief story of how I entered the field of Personal Training.
In my early 20’s I worked for a large aircraft manufactuer. I had no idea how demanding my 6-year term at this company would be. During this time, I began to experience periods of anxiety, depression and a general lack of enthusiasm for my life. Gradually I began to realize that these negative emotions and their impact on my body were symptoms of something within that was out of alignment. The longer I resisted these negative feelings with distractions such as overeating, alcohol or excessive exercise the louder they became.
Leaving the job was my first step and thankfully by the time I was ready to do that I had entered the field of Personal Training part-time. I began to search out the best in the field of personal training and holistic health. Combining their skills, with my unique talent and determination, I began to learn and change – which of course continues to this day. These experiences gave me the inner strength and a passion to help others in their quest for physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
Initially my path lead me to physical training. Training provided me a way to release my tension while reshaping my body. This was the launching board for me to enter the health and fitness profession. I soon became a personal trainer through the CHEK Institute, a world leader in health and fitness education. During my time at the Institute I came to realize the important role that diet plays in maintaining a healthy body and sense of wellbeing. I was inspired to deepen my knowledge and completed a two-year program at the Institute of Holistic Nutrition.
Once I mastered these physical aspects of personal training, I sought a higher level of emotional and spiritual growth with the best of instruction in yoga, meditation and life coaching both for personal growth and to develop skills that I can share with others.
I feel blessed that I am able to bring my extensive education, presence and experience to an amazing clientele, whom bring much joy into my life. Here’s what a few have to say about there experience with me.
I hope my experience may inspire you to move towards your unique and fulfilling life experience. I would be excited to assist you in your journey.
Yours in inspiration!
