When I think back to the first day I steopped foot into a group fitness class, I never thought I would end up where I am today.
I was only 15 years old when I went to my first step class in the small town of Kindersley, Saskatchewan, Canada. I attended a class by an instructor named Cheryl. She was wonderful! Great choreography, easy to follow and fun! I took a few more classes from Cheryl and eventually she asked if I ever thought about teaching. I remember going home to my mom that night and telling her. My mom's response; "Why don't you try it!" And that was 20 years ago and I am still involved 100% in the fitness industry and see myself nowhere else.
I have loved every minute of my job. What could you not love as a trainer/instructor. Teaching fitness is the most positive, rewarding experience there is. My favorite part is seeing my clients/participants work to their max. Seeing them push themselves harder than they ever thought they could. I believe every one has more potential than they think they do and I love to pull that out!
It has been 20 great years and I know there are 20 more to come! This is only the beginning of my career and I look forward to every day and what each day will bring.
Stay healthy, positive and in love with what you do!
