Since the inception of Body Fit’s monthly newsletter I have been asking myself, ‘How can I use my knowledge and experience to help inspire others to live a stronger and healthier lifestyle?’ When I approached Andy about the idea of contributing an article within the newsletter his response was very positive. He has graciously provided me an opportunity as an educator and leader in the field of fitness and health sciences to offer helpful information about how you can increase your knowledge, improve your personal well being and, ultimately, enhance the overall quality of your life. There’s never been a better time to build a partnership with the staff and members of Body Fit as there is right now.
Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself. Some of you may recognize me from here at the gym while training with my workout partner, or perhaps you’ve attended one of my spinning classes. Some of you may also remember me as that ‘very pregnant woman’ who was waddling her way around the gym last summer waiting anxiously for the arrival of baby #2 (an even tougher workout I might add!!). You may even recognize me as being one of your son or daughter’s teachers from Uxbridge Secondary School. But ultimately, I’m a fitness enthusiast who shares a common goal with all of you – to live a healthy lifestyle in hopes of being our best.
I have worked in the industry for the past 13 years in a variety of roles. I am a certified fitness and spinning instructor as well as having earned my personal training certification. After completing my Bachelor of Kinesiology and Bachelor of Education I began a teaching career with the goal of inspiring our youth to incorporate fitness into their daily lives and teach healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
Each month I will write about a topic of interest in the area of fitness and health. This leads itself to a wide variety of possibilities. If there is a particular topic that you would like to read about just let me know. I’m excited about contributing to the monthly edition of Richly Rewarding Living. I would love to hear your questions and I welcome your feedback through our interactive blog at bodyfit.ca or you can e-mail me directly with your comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in Fitness,
