I'm a native of Toronto Ontario.
How did I get into Fitness?
Well, It was the summer of Grade 10, I started watching the 20 minute workout. Yes, that's right... I started taping the shows on my tape recorder (I didn't have a VCR at the time..). I memorized the workouts and did them in the basement. After a while I made up my own routines.
I did a Phys-Ed Co-Op at an Elementary School and taught Mousercise to the little kids - That was quite an experience!
In 1990 I took the YWCA Fitness/Dancercise Instructors Certification Course with Dawn Daniels and my career expanded from there to Pilates, Bootcamp, Yoga for exercise and more. Facilitating classes for ages ranging from 25 to over 80 years of age.
I began teaching CPR/1st Aid Courses over 10 years ago.
Ironically just about every time that I would take re-certification classes for myself, I seemed to become somewhat of a "first aid magnet" and would be called upon to use my skills I took that as a sign and became an Instructor.
I have a passion for learning I believe that knowledge is power and you are never too old to gain new skills. Outside of fitness, I handle dogs. I've educated myself through various workshops and seminars. I'd really like to learn more about dog training, and Behavior Modification. I think dogs are great and they teach us a lot.
