Why did you choose canfitpro?

It seemed like the best choice for a personal training certification in Canada.

What is your “why”. Why have you chosen this profession?

College was 18 months in a basement apartment with no windows, alone, in Toronto, with few friends. Needless to say, I was extremely depressed coming out of college. I’m a self learner, so I started looking into how to fix my depression. The internet was adamant about exercising (as well as spending time outside and taking cold showers, which I also implemented). So I started researching how to exercise and applying my new knowledge by going to the gym. It got to a point where I felt great and wasn’t as sad anymore. I figured I had accumulated so much knowledge that I should go get certified and help other people the same way I helped myself.

What gets you excited to go to work each day?

Knowing that my clients have problems and I have solutions to those problems. Having the knowledge that is the key to improving someone’s quality of life is why I get out of bed.

What do you enjoy the most about what you do?

When I have clients tell me things like:
“I can tie my left shoe and tuck in my shirt on my own now!” – after 4 weeks of training post snowmobile accident
Or
“I was not expecting the hike (to spread my husband’s ashes) to have as many slopes as it did. If it wasn’t for you, I don’t think my ankle would have held up.” – she missed her scheduled rehab post ankle break because she was sleeping in hospital chairs for a year watching her husband slowly pass
