Home Gym, city and province:
Howe Fit - Kingsville + Harrow are my fitness studios that I own and I also train out of my facilities in Kingsville, Ontario.
I would like to believe that I have a very adaptable training style that speaks to my clients needs and goals. A majority of my personal training sessions are mostly weight training based with very little emphasis on traditional cardio methods.
My platform as a trainer and as a female is to promote STRONG, healthy bodies and confident bodies. I believe this goal best accomplished not through one specific training method (ie. CrossFit ) but with a well rounded workout program that includes weight training, flexibility and stretching emphasis and HIIT style cardio method.
Why did you become a personal trainer?
Growing up, I was always heavily involved in sports and athletics year round. In college, I thought it would be beneficial to learn about the body and it's muscular systems and apply that knowledge to helping me train to become a better athlete.
When I finished my personal training certification, I started training friends and family and from there, I feel in love with the career of personal training because it allowed me to connect mentally and physically with anyone that I worked with.
What do you think is the reason your clients gravitated to you?
I would like to believe that my clients have stuck with me over the course of my 10 year career in the industry because I have been proven to be a reliable NO BS individual that people can actually trust. Unlike some personal trainers that get into the game because they "kinda like" fitness , I can assure you that this is just want I DO but fitness and health is a part of who I AM.
Whether it is working out, instructing group fitness classes or training for a fitness show I can say with 100% certainty that I always show up with intensity, energy and confidence.
Greatest client success story:
Around 11 years ago an overweight, out of shape truck driver name Jaymie Sawyer asked me to be his personal trainer. He was a model personal training client right from the beginning. Not only did he never complain, he never made excuses and he was always up for a challenge. In 2008, he verbalized to me that he loved fitness and that he eventually wished to be a personal trainer himself and perhaps compete in a fitness show.
Fast forward to 2018, Jaymie has successfully managed to lose 130lbs and compete in three fitness shows. Even more impressive, Jaymie is now MY personal trainer.
Why do you think you can rep EFX Sports like a boss? What do you love about the brand?
I think I can represent this brand like a boss because I am and always have been involved in sports and continue to evolve and grow as a athlete myself. I was named athlete of the year in high school and also the first two years of my college education. If I believe in a product or service enough that I think it can benefit individuals, especially clients of mine, then I will put my energy and focus in making sure that people see the relevance of taking advantage of that product or service. I love that EFX Sports are advocates of health and the bodybuilding lifestyle. The brand speaks to athletes and those who want to make healthy "gains" without having to sacrifice their morals or health in order to achieve their long-term goals.
Why should YOU be Canada’s Top trainer?
Over the last 10+ years of my fitness career, I can count on my fingers and toes the amount of days that I have taken off work. I simply LOVE what I do and I always have.
I have poured my heart and soul into delivering the best possible service to my personal training clients, online distance nutrition clients and my valued Howe Fit members. I have always made myself easily accessible at all hours of the day to my clients to make sure that are confident in their plans and answering any questions they may have.
I am beyond happy and grateful to have been noticed and nominated within the 10 ten Best Personal Trainers in Canada but I truly want to win because I DESERVE to win.
What is your favorite EFX product and why?
Due to the brands previous limited availability in Canada, I have only tried the KRE ALKALYN HARDCORE and Kre Alkalyn EFX in pill form.
I have been using these product on a consistent basis of my competition off and on seasons with much success. Over the last 3 years of my focused strength training regiment, I have found I have made the most muscular and strength gains due to proper nutrition and proper supplementation.
I look forward to trying samples of their other products and being able to express the importance of sports nutrition and supplementation to my clients looking to make performance improvements and also muscular gains.
