I have always been interested in health and fitness. In high school I taught cycling classes. When I finished university and entered the work force in Marketing I felt like something was missing. So I took the plunge, and went back to school to become a Personal Trainer. I worked at the YMCA as a fitness coach teaching classes. When I was pregnant, I became fascinated by how the body changes and went for my specialization in Pre and Post Natal Fitness. That became my main focus in 2011. I started my company Train of Thought Fitness Inc. [ToT Fitness] with the purpose of motivating woman before, during, and after pregnancy; to be strong in their body, but even more importantly strong in their mind. As they are training for one of the most challenging moments of their lives.
As myself and my clients started moving past the child bearing phase of our lives, I went looking for new methods within the fitness industry to push myself and my clients physically and mentally. That’s when I found MMA and Crossfit and fell in love. Through my practice in Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Boxing, Juijitsu the mental focus and challenge has given me the patience and courage to push my body to the edge. When I introduce some of these practices to my clients I found the same to be true for them. Their mental strength gained from the challenge allowed them to push their bodies harder, giving them incredible physical strength. When I introduced them to crossfit, the world of power lifting, gymnastics, and calisthenics they were trying things they never thought possible, making them stronger than they have ever been. With physical strength comes lower body fat, toned muscles, confidence, better sleep, lower stress, and more patience to name a few of the many benefits.
I am endlessly passionate about the fitness industry and I strive to have my clients enjoy the journey to a stronger body and even stronger mind.
