I started my fitness journey as a classic basement workout dweller. I tried different videos and fad workouts but was too embarrassed to enter a large gym. When I finally joined a gym I went very early in the morning to avoid crowds and tried my best at challenging myself but just didn’t have the proper knowledge base.
As my daughter got older I wanted to be a role model and show her the importance of being active.I started taking yoga classes at a small studio trying to find balance and then decided to try working with a personal trainer. I soon found that I was being challenged and loved the growth I saw in my strength in my body and mind. This sparked my interest and passion to help others on their journey and I then decided to get certified through Canfit Pro. I have been lucky enough to continue growing through constant re-certifications, new courses, trying classes and working with a variety of groups, ages and people. Teaching classes at RiseAbove is not a job, it’s a constant learning experience, it’s coaching, standing beside and guiding others, its meeting new people and its helping others strengthen both their bodies and minds.
