By the time I was 15 I knew I wanted to be in the fitness industry professionally.
Growing up I was involved in a lot of various team and individual sports. Through each one I gained confidence in myself and my teammates.
In my teen years I began to weight train at VFC. I fell in love with the gym and noticed how much I loved to see my teammates and friends succeed. It was then that I realized my passion for fitness was undeniable and that I want to help as many other people succed as I possibly can.

I have lived in Invermere for most of my life. Early on in my life I was always into sports, such as hockey, football, and baseball. While I was not in the best shape of my life (I was actually 245lbs at 6”) playing those sports was difficult with all the extra weight I carried around. So I made a change and hired my own personal trainer where they changed my life completely. That trainer got me in great shape for my hockey tryouts that year, and even though I didn’t make that team, it paved the way for me to choose a career in training others.
What I Offer:
The type of training that I offer is more towards Bodybuilding and Athletics, so whether you’re looking to do a competition or get ready for the upcoming season, I will provide you with a personalized workout program to fit your needs. Also if you’re newer to the gym I will teach you new and effective exercise techniques to maximize your potential, proper gym etiquette, and how to balance your lifestyle.

I am all about Strength – Strength of Character – Strength of Body – Strength of Mind
ABOUT ME: I fell in love with strength training at an early age of 16. It has carried me through life and its challenges like a suit of protective armour. I have personal experience with rehabilitation of the body and know that slow and steady always wins the race. I model my training with the philosophy that lean bodies are won with strength training and healthy eating habits; and building muscle gives people shape in places they want while trimming fat where they don’t. I am positive and upbeat and about as real as it gets! My goal is to help you reach your goal!
MY PASSIONS: My family, my friends, my fitness.
Summer is my favorite season, I love a new salad recipe and good clean eats. Country music is my first choice always. I choose chocolate over wine. I love to dance and I love to laugh.
MY PROMISE : I will bring my best as your trainer.
I will challenge you, we will laugh, you will sweat, we will succeed!
MY WISH FOR YOU: To be in the best shape of your life, for the rest of your life.
See you in the gym!
