The gym has been my passion forever and I have gone all over the map in the world of training.
I am a certified Personal Trainer in the City of Ottawa and enjoy working with my clients to achieve their goals. My own journey has been a challenging one and I fought through medical issues to get to where I am today. I have a passion for working with those who believe that they can’t work out due to disability or illness and helping them realize their full potential. My own experiences give me a unique perspective and allow me to relate to my clients’ struggles and achievements. I am motivating others who feel like they can’t do it understand they why and how of I can. My goals are to provide others with guidance, safety, and healthy-living. I have fought through medical battlegrounds in order to get to where I am today, and believe that motivation is the beating heart of every success story. If you believe in yourself, you can get through anything. Health and fitness are not just about exercise and I work with my clients to ensure that they are living the healthiest life possible by managing stress, nutrition, and sleep. It is a full package and these are important aspects to consider in order achieving physical goals.

I train clients at Elite Edge Ottawa located at 1665 Russell Road. I offer training in a variety of ways such as; one on one, semi-private, group sessions and online training. The gym has long been my passion and I have spent this time training in a variety of domains. Some of the areas that I have studied the most are bodybuilding, weight loss, Olympic lifting and movement in general. I compete in Olympic lifting, and I’m telling you this because I always want my clients to know that I am working just as hard as they are in the gym. The concepts and skills learned through the sport have also guided me in creating principals for my training, and yes these can apply even if your training is completely different then mine.
The journey that I have embarked on to get where I am today has been a long and strenuous one. Beginning at the age of six months old, doctors found an abnormal blood vessel rupture in my brain, a medical condition known as Cavernous Angioma, and had to perform a number of considerable operations. Post-op, however, I was able to develop as any child typically would, until about the age of thirteen. It was then that I had another brain hemorrhage, requiring even more surgery. Of course, being of an adolescent age at this time, it was significantly more difficult getting through this particular chapter in my life, but I chose to believe in myself. And with the strength and encouragement of my support system, I got through it.
