I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Fitness Nutrition specialist. I am also a provincially qualified bikini competitor in British Columbia.
Just like many women, I was intimidated by the weight room. In February 2012, I stepped out of my comfort zone and decided it was time for a change - I wanted to transform my body and so I did. I started lifting weights and changed my eating habits. I loved the changes I was seeing in both my body and my mind. The gym became my safe place, the place where I felt confident and a sense of belonging.
My hope is to encourage more women to feel confident in the weight room, to love their bodies and to be proud of their accomplishments both in the gym and outside of it.
