My "Why" As a Trainer
My focus when working with individuals is injury prevention, life-training balance and realistic goal setting. I don’t just train people, I also incorporate nutrition, psychology and teach you how to listen to your body. For every client, I strive to find the right mix of challenging and supporting them.
I started building training programs for individuals recovering from injuries and motor vehicle accidents through my placement in Napanee Physio Clinic. These strength programs were specifically for the individual’s needs, time availability, space availability (inside a gym or at home) and lifestyle. I got people moving and living pain free.
To date (April 2019) I have completed:
13 half marathons, 5 full marathons (placed 1st, 2nd and 5th in my division), 1 ultramarathon- Carcross- Whitehorse YT, Full Kluane Chilkat Bike race, 3 sprint triathlons, 3 Olympic triathlons, 1 half Ironman triathlons
Some of my training for others
I’ve built specialized programing for individual who are excited to take on new challenges like the Yukon Quest, Reckless Raven Ultra, Whitehorse Trail Marathon, Kluane Chilkat Bike race, 70.3 Ironman, and 140.6 Ironman.
