Wow, what an exciting 20 year journey it has been in this fabulous fitness industry. The adventure has taken me from creating a gold standard group training class, to running my own mobile training business, to designing a posture program with a physiotherapist, to writing eBooks, and teaching a train the trainer course on a niche population. Some of the areas I have expertise in are: joint replacement, weight loss, cross training for runners, healthy back programs, women's health, posture, youth, functional training programs, and Parkinson's.

My educational training began at Simon Fraser University with a diploma in Kinesiology and I am also a certified ACE Advanced Exercise Specialist. As an avid learner with a keen interest to stay up to date, I have attended numerous IDEA fitness conferences to get trained from the top experts in our industry.

For 10 years I lead the joint replacement classes for people with arthritis preparing for and recovering from knee and hip replacement surgery. From the experience I gained through the years, I designed a full day workshop and manual for personal trainers on how to design training programs for clients pre and post hip or knee operation. Realizing that there was a demand for this knowledge for clients as well in all areas of the world, I went to work on creating 2 ebooks on hip and knee replacement exercises. They can be found at Knee Replacement Exercises and Hip Replacement Exercises
The Core Posture exercise program that Cathy Watson, a physiotherapist and Pilates instructor, and I designed together can be found at www.corepostureexercises.com.
