Thanks for stopping by!
It was actually never my intention to become a Personal Trainer. It came about through a series of events in my life as these things often do...
I began my career in health care in 2014 as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer, after graduating from NAIT. After a few years I was able to specialize in musculoskeletal ultrasound. I loved learning about how our muscles and joints work. It fascinated me that we are complex machines that can walk, balance and play.
During this time I also entered my first triathlon (racing where you swim, bike and run) and I was instantly hooked! In my youth I had a seven year career as a Red Cross Aquatics Instructor with the City of Edmonton and have always been an avid swimmer. What I really loved about triathlon was the challenge of road biking which was scary and new, the strategizing that went into pacing and transitioning between segments, and most of all the camaraderie of the triathlon community.
As I was working I began to recognize the prevalence of injuries in the general population. Everyday I would meet people of all ages that suffered from pain and frustration and saw the impacts it had on their daily living. After experiencing my own chronic injury, I knew that more needed to be done to prevent these issues. This, and my newfound love of triathlon, led me to enrol in the Personal Fitness Trainer program at NAIT.
My passion for swimming and triathlon has now expanded to enjoying many activities such as cross country skiing, Pilates, road cycling, Ultimate Frisbee, badminton and weight training. Now that I am a Certified Personal Trainer I am eager to share my passion for fitness. Through EduKayt Fitness I hope to inspire others to find sports and activities that bring them joy and improve their physical and emotional health!
