However, I didn’t discover my passion for the gym until I graduated from performing art’s college and found myself part of a highly image conscious and competitive industry. I soon realized that in order to keep my body in shape I had no other option but to start working out.
What started out as a hobby soon became a lifestyle, a passion, and a career. I decided to go back to University to obtain a Sports Science and Physiology Degree, and I’m lucky to say that since earning my Degree, Health and Fitness has taken me all over the world.
I was requested by David Lloyd to train and teach group fitness classes at his premier health club in Edinburgh, travelled with Virgin Athletic to their overseas clubs and I went on to create the group fitness schedule for England’s largest chain of health clubs.
My infamous BLT class has tightened and toned some of London’s most influential bottoms! I moved from England to Canada in February 2005 and began working as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor at Platinum Gym in Surrey, and was soon promoted to Group Fitness Coordinator. After a couple of years, I was then approached by the owners of Kitsilano Workout. I started there as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Coordinator and slowly ended up taking on various responsibilities including Fitness Manager, Sales Manager and finally General Manager.
After its unexpected closure I began running my own business Fierce Training. I have obtained my Russian KettleBell Certification, studied Olympic lifting with some of Canada’s top Olympic athletes, and competed in the 2018 CF regionals. Over the years I have trained some pretty well known actors and actresses helping them to get in roll ready shape.
10 years ago I discovered I was pregnant with my amazing 9 year old daughter Lyla and discovered there was little to no information for expectant mums on diastasis recti, core and pelvic floor rehab here in BC.
So I made it my mission to obtain as much information and qualifications as possible not only to rehab myself but other expectant mums too.
I am excited to be bringing my extensive fitness knowledge to Kalev fitness and to be part of his amazing team and vision.
