My love affair with CrossFit began in 2010 when I first walked through the doors of CrossFit Pickering.  As a personal trainer, Phys. Ed. Teacher, and football player, I felt that I had a good level of physical fitness. As I laid in a pool of sweat after my first workout, I quickly realized that there was a whole other dimension of fitness that I had never realized existed! After only a couple weeks of CrossFit, I started to notice significant changes in my body, athleticism, and mental performance.  I was getting faster, leaner and stronger doing less traditional weight training and spending less time in the gym!

As a certified personal trainer (CSEP), I believe that I have established a good foundation of physical fitness, and nutrition.  My specialized Honors degree in Kinesiology and Health Science (BSc.), provides me with a strong foundational knowledge base in human anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics.  My Bachelor of Education (Bed.) in Health and Physical Education equips me with the tools to be able to present my knowledge to my athletes in an educative and creative manner.  My Canadian National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) certifications in Olympic weight lifting , volleyball,  and basketball  provides me with a theoretical and technical skill set to best prepare my athletes to execute sport specific movements with high proficiency and accuracy. It was not until I enrolled in my CrossFit Level 1 Trainers course, did I learn how to best utilize all of the elements in my portfolio. Through CrossFit’s philosophies on how to achieve optimal health and fitness, I was finally given the tools to assist my students, athletes, and clients in achieving their personal, fitness, and wellness goals.
