Core to Extremity Fitness is for all fitness levels and focuses on functional movements. Functional movements are movements that mimic patterns used in everyday life. For example, a squat is standing from a seated position and a deadlift is picking any object up off the ground. Functional movements are performed in a wave of contraction from “core to extremity” and are also compound (multi-joint) movements.

Training with functional movements takes advantage of the natural mechanics of the human body, meaning they are safe to perform provided good technique is demonstrated.

Growing up I was never really interested in team sports but was always interested in fitness and intrigued with how the body moves. However, it was not until I decided to switch career paths from commercial pilot and go back to school that I really began my journey in health and fitness.

In my first year of Kinesiology, I had the opportunity to teach outdoor group fitness and stroller classes at Point Pleasant Park and Shubie Park. After that I got involved in CrossFit where I fell in love with functional fitness, especially weightlifting, and worked my way into a coaching position after becoming a CrossFit Level-1 Trainer.

After graduating from Dalhousie in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and a certificate in disability management, I moved out of the city and bought a house in Enfield where I grew up. At that time, I saw a need in the area for more fitness services and wanted to share my passion for fitness with the community.

I am continually seeking educational opportunities to provide myself and my clients with the highest quality of training. Outside of training other people, I keep up with my own training regiment as a competitive Olympic Weightlifter.
