In June of 2018, I became a PRO TRAINER with canfitpro because I wanted to give back to the fitness community. Helping to shape the next generation of instructors, meant that I could pass on my passion and hopefully encourage any student in my class to reach beyond their comfort zone to become the best that they can be.
2020 was an exciting year for canfitpro because they launched virtual versions of all of their training programs. I was so happy to be a part of this learning process and over the last 12 months, I have helped students complete their certification from all around the world, not just in the Montreal area. I am so proud of canfitpro for not fearing change and adapting their programs to the current Covid restrictions.
After almost 3 years, I have decided that it is time for me to retire from being a PRO TRAINER so that I can devote 100% of my time to my Virtual Fitness Studio. I need the time to fully serve my clients who have been supporters of mine for 10-20 years!
I have been a member of canfitpro since 2001. Their educational programs are stellar in the way that they teach students how to be independant thinkers and designers of fitness programs. Students of canfitpro, are taught to be ready for any situation that might arise in a group exercise class, and they are given all of the tools that they need to help each client achieve their personal fitness goals within that group.
Also on my bucket list, was to be published in the canfitpro magazine and this dream became a reality in the Januray/February issue of 2019!
It is important to set goals for ourselves and to keep moving forward. Now that I will no longer have to work evenings and weekends, I will have more time to work on my writing projects. I have self published two books and co-authored a third. I have 4 non-fiction books in the works and one novel. I hope to get one or two of these projects completed this year.
I am closing one chapter so that I can begin another.
One of my favourite quotes from Stephen King when asked what's the best advice you ever got? "There will be people who like what you do and people who don't. But if they're still picking over the last thing and you're working on the next thing, that's all yours."
See you soon,
