I am the classic ‘former fat girl‘ having weighed over 225 pounds in high school. I was never taught anything about proper nutrition, responsible exercise or balancing the two. I never knew anything about how the body processed food, used energy stores or the difference between aerobic and anaeorbic exercise. I didn’t know if you mixed the two up you could be wasting your time exercising.
I know all of that now…and a whole lot more. I’ve lost over 200 pounds in my life, between my old ‘former fat girl’ and two pregnancies. Within four months of each pregnancy I was back to pre-pregnancy weight, the second with twins. Naturally, without surgery or the latest fads, lotions, potions or pills.
Raised by a single working mother who did her best to ensure I started my day with breakfast, had a solid lunch for me and ensured I ate supper and snacks in and around after school activities. I ate some of the best fast food, pre-packaged boxed food, sugar coated food products and processed stuff know to mankind. I didn’t know any better and did I ever pay for it. Well, my gain helps your loss…literally.
I graduated University with my BA in Kineisiology, became a Certified Personal Trainer, have worked in some of the best fitness clubs in the GTA and I have continued to learn by taking multiple courses in several modalities from child fitness to sport specific training. To help me understand the science of food and how the body uses nutrients, I also became a certified nutritionist and in continuing my education earned my PhD in Nutritional Science. All this so I can serve you better!
With that in mind, I decided the best way I could help more people was to stop working for clubs and start my own Boot Camp, Personal Training and Fitness Consulting Business. I have also formulated my own supplements that are the best you will ever take.
