I was born and raised in Vancouver...

…where I played many competitive sports through high school, including Rugby, Tennis, Track & Field and Field Hockey. After high school I focused on field hockey and played for team Canada on both the junior and senior national teams. It was in this same period of playing hockey and touring with team Canada that I completed my diploma in Human Performance from Langara College. After college and touring I began working at Fitness Town as this seemed like a natural fit and path for my further development and interest in Health & Fitness. But as many people do I began neglecting my own fitness After a few years and gained some unwanted extra poundage and found that I had lost my competitive drive. It was in 2008 that I discovered CrossFit, and even after losing my lunch after my intro session, I was immediately hooked.

 

By sticking with the program I have found dramatic improvements in almost every aspect of my life.While I have been impressed with the physical results, it’s really the mental challenge and the ability to continue learning and teaching others that has kept me hooked now 8 years later. My only regret was that I didn’t find CrossFit sooner. In 2009 I competed in the very first Canadian CrossFit Regionals competition, hosted by OPT and CrossFit Calgary. It was in this year that I went to the CrossFit games (last one to take place in Aromas) competing on a team for CrossFit Vancouver. I coach CrossFit because I love sharing my passion for the sport with others and helping people achieve what they never thought possible. I have seen in so many friends and clients see vast improvements in health and fitness, and have truly life changing results through the CrossFit program. This is what keep me coming back (even at 6am!) to help others achieve what I know is possible with effective programming, smart coaching and a lot of hard work.
