ABOUT ME

I am a Certified Personal Trainer, Perimenopause Fitness Coach and passionate follower of Jesus Christ.

I offer peri/menopause programs, both online and in person fitness classes and 1:1 personal training as well as custom fitness programs, online app programs and monthly fitness Kickstarts. 

My love of fitness and movement started when I was 18 years old. This passion led me to get my CanFitPro Certified Personal Trainer certification, an NASM Certified Nutrition Coach designation and various other certificates and specializations. I specialize in strength training for women approaching or in peri/menopause.

For over 3 decades now, I’ve worked with over clients across the world to help them achieve their strength, mobility, core stability, weight loss, general fitness and, over 40 hormone balancing goals.

My career thus far has included training athletes for Femsport competitions, physique competitions, soccer, Crossfit, general health and fitness and rehabilitation.

In a nutshell - I absolutely love movement and helping people to move well - and safely - gaining a deeper awareness of their own body.

I’d love to do the same for you. 

Let’s connect, I’d love to chat more about your fitness goals!

My story.

I'd been in the fitness and health business as a trainer and coach for over 25 years when I began to experience hormone imbalance and perimenopausal symptoms in my mid 40's. I went from an on the go, incredibly energetic, strong, lean woman able to work out intensely and lift heavy weights most days of the week to feeling constantly sore with burning in my ankles and was gaining weight no matter what I did - even with all the workouts and not eating much at all.

Nothing was working. In fact I was gaining more weight in odd places that I never had before and was becoming more irritable by the day. Many days I just wanted a hole to appear and swallow me up! 

I had to make a choice.

I couldn’t keep going through life like that. I had to do something, anything to try and get better. I started doing research on my symptoms, especially my awful periods, weight gain and lack of muscle tone, and I found out that hormone imbalance led to every single symptom I’d been experiencing.

I learned stress was wreaking havoc on my health I was lacking the vital nutrients and vitamins my body (and hormones!) truly needed to thrive! I began to focus on eating the right portions and types of food, nourishing my body with what it needed (which wasn't more double doubles) and doing less when it came to intense workouts, not more.

What a difference this made! In just a few weeks, I felt an incredible difference. No more joint pain, I was sleeping better than I had in years, and I didn’t feel bloated. I just focused on nourishing my body and giving it what it needed, and the change was amazing!  A few years after that I experienced the life changing love and peace that surpasses understanding through Christ.

These experiences both served me to serve others more fully in two ways and gave me a gift.

A newfound purpose.

 

More than ever I’m on a path committed to help others by helping give the glory to God through his blessings and fulfilling my purpose of showing women the power they have to age with strength & grace. I help women uncover their inner athlete and turn I can't into I can to enjoy a stronger, fitter, empowered and live a healthier life from the inside out.

And so after more than three decades I have come to specialize in women's only health and fitness, with a specialty in workouts and lifestyle changes for women approaching or in peri/menopause.

 

I want to help you enjoy the hormone health I discovered so you can live a life of joy, energy, and vibrancy too.

In addition to bringing you resources based on women's health research and workouts that WORK for you, I also have the personal experience to guide you and support you as you work to reach your health goals and reclaim your life!
