Why did you choose canfitpro?

In order to certify as a fitness professional being recognized across Canada

What is your “why”. Why have you chosen this profession?

I am an older adult with a professional dance background. In order to keep fit I started group training classes at which time I realized I could help people my age and older. It was a natural progression.

What gets you excited to go to work each day?

Challenging people to push themselves. Seeing improvements in older bodies who have not done a formal fitness class ever or for a long time.

What do you enjoy the most about what you do?

Knowing I am making a difference

Is there another part of your story that you would like to share?

I would like to be involved in the inevitable growth of the older adult fitness movement as we are looking at a very different population and the governments needs to be encouraged to promote and assist programs across the country for everyone in all income brackets. Not just those who can afford classes.
