Coach - Shades

A personalized approach:
Want to learn how CrossFit methodology can be utilized to help you reach your fitness goals?   I believe there is no one size fits all path to achieving optimal wellness.  We can all benefit from a CrossFit program tailored to our unique needs.  What works for one, may not be best for another.  The question is, what is the best way FOR YOU to achieve the results YOU WANT?

Different strokes for different folks:

Maybe the accountability of attending CrossFit Group classes multiple times a week is what you need.  Or you might benefit from personal training coupled with group classes. Perhaps you want to develop of your own CrossFit program to complete at home, in another gym, or our Open Gym hours.   Many people I work with use CrossFit classes and personal training to complement their marathon, triathlon or other sports specific endeavours.  Let’s start by talking about your goals. From there we can map out the ideal plan to reach them.

My training and credentials:
In additional to my fitness training I received my Master of Social Work degree from UBC in 1998,  have worked in the health care field since then and am also employed at UBC’s Center for Brain Health.  I have witnessed first-hand the difference a fit body can make in helping one prevent or recover from illness.  My work in the health care field has heightened my awareness of the difficulties people face when trying to make fitness a priority while juggling multiple other life commitments. Making time for fitness can feel like an uphill battle but with planning and small but steady steps your health and fitness goals can be achieved.
