Erin's Story

How I got here

Whitagram-Image 3.jpg

Ever since I can remember, I have been an active individual. Exercise, sports and fitness have always been a huge part of my life. From growing up playing recreational, to very competitive elite sports, fitness has been a critical part of my emotional, physical and mental health. I took this passion for fitness and wellness and achieved a diploma in Fitness & Health Promotion at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario. 

My passion comes from seeing positive change in the individuals I work with. I love hearing that people are moving better, they're doing more of the things they want to do, and overall have a better outlook on life when exercise is a part of their routine. My main goal is to provide an uplifting environment that inspires people. I love when clients underestimate their abilities, and when guided in the right direction, they are able to see how much they can do, and the goals they can achieve. I constantly strive to help keep people moving the best that they can, for as long as they can.

I would like to bring my knowledge and expertise for fitness into your life by providing individualized and group fitness programming for special populations. With physical activity comes an increased quality of life and my goal is to bring that to each and every client.

I deeply value the health and happiness of my clients and I am dedicated to working to improve both. My knowledge and experience in the fitness industry allows for a variety of opportunities to bring happiness, joy, and education to the clients with whom I interact. I believe I can make a positive difference in your life as your trainer.
