I instruct Bootcamp and MOSSA Group Power currently at the facility. I currently hold certifications with CanFit Pro and AFLCA. I am certified to instruct MOSSA Group Power, MOSSA Group Core and MOSSA Group Groove, Insanity, Level 1 Fitness Kickboxing and working with a mentor to achieve awesomeness in cycle.
I have been with the Talisman Centre for 9 years full time and instructing Group Fitness classes for 7 of them. When I’m not encouraging our members to “get comfortable with uncomfortable” I fill in the rest of my time as the Health and Safety Officer for Talisman Centre. Prior to Talisman Centre I worked in a high stress, high risk and crazy exciting dynamic environment that revolved around manmade and natural disasters. I came to that dreaded crossroads in my life where I had to really look myself in the mirror and ask myself if I liked who I saw. I was overweight, stressed out, unhappy emotionally but considered very successful in my line of work. I quit my job, moved in with my parents (humbling at 29) and completely broke down mentally, physically and spiritually. Through my breakdowns I found fitness, and that is when my transformation began.
Now when I’m searching for my new goal, race or competition my #1 priority is: does it scare me? The physical aspect is a terrific payoff in training but the mental and spiritual journey is so much more. When I feel I don’t have 1 more rep in me and my mind is screaming for me to stop and I’m so uncomfortable in my own skin THAT is when I feel my best self. I want to be strong not skinny, I want to inspire people by action not phony words that fall short, I want people to walk away from one of my classes feeling body exhausted but mentally and spiritually invigorated.
