Corporate – My Experience

I am passionate about helping people.  Throughout my career, I have been a passionate believer and supporter of education and advocacy for living a healthy, active and a more balanced lifestyle.

Throughout my long career in the health and fitness industry, my desire to educate others set me on a path to further expand my portfolio and work with businesses interested in developing and implementing a variety of corporate initiatives centered on health and well-being.  As a result, I have had the privilege of creating many workshops both on my own and in partnerships with several well respected health, fitness and wellness professionals in Niagara Region and beyond.  My experience working with and for such highly respected companies as listed below, have helped hone my skills and provided me an opportunity to share my expertise and experience.  

If you are interested in learning more about developing and/or implementing a corporate Health and Wellness initiative in your company, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.

Keiser Functional Trainer

I was approached to develop and deliver educational workshops/presentations on what I consider to be one of Keiser’s most functional and diverse pieces of equipment, the Functional Trainer.  I have found this to be one of the most effective and diverse machines out there in my work with helping to condition a wide range of clients from amateur to professional athletes, everyday people looking to increase their fitness, post rehab clients and the aging men and women.  

It is a great honor to work alongside and representing such a forward thinking, well respected, research/educational company.  Here are some examples of the work I have done with Keiser; ( letter of reference here)
