My passion for fitness is evident in the way I live my life. Rock climbing, kayaking, snowboarding, trail running and weight training are some of the activities I have focused on throughout the years. Both formally and informally I have instructed others on the basics of snowboarding, climbing and kayaking. I enjoy helping likeminded people discover the joy of adventuring in the outdoors. As I continue to educate myself about new approaches to health and fitness, I understand the vital connection between diet, exercise and the ability of an individual to enjoy life. I relish the idea of being able to share this knowledge and helping my clients gain a greater enjoyment of their surroundings through fitness with my personal training services.


In recent years I have focused my own personal training in preparation for endurance kayak racing (715 km Yukon River Quest), and multi-distance (50 km-50 mile) trail running races in Canada and the US. I also enjoy a leisurely paddle around the islands or hikes on our beautiful island.


So whether you are wanting to start training for your first marathon or just needing help to start you on the road to the new healthier you, I am here to help. So come on. Let's get you going.
