I’ve been a Registered Massage Therapist for over 25 years. I also provide cupping therapy and fascial taping and I’m a Certified Holistic Nutritionist.

I first joined CrossFit Kitchener in 2012 with two small boys at home. It became one of my biggest priorities. I’d be bothered when I missed a workout. It didn’t matter how I felt going in, I’d always leave feeling great. 

As my boys became teenagers, I felt it was the right time to take the step to get my L1 Coaching certification. I have such a passion for CrossFit in general, and specifically the CFK family. Fast forward to 2023, the opportunity presented itself to become an owner. I needed, and then found a well-suited partner in Dayton, and now we bring our skills and expertise together to offer others the amazing experience we’ve had. Our goal is to make it the best hour of your day! 

Hope to see you in my class soon!

I started CrossFit with a desire to try something a little more challenging than the bicep curls at my local big box gym.

Now, I've always thought I was pretty fit, but like all noobs to CrossFit, the first few classes quickly proved otherwise. Nevertheless, I kept at it and slowly but surely I started seeing the results I was hoping for.

When the opportunity presented itself to buy into CrossFit Kitchener I couldn't say no to the opportunity to help more people change their lives and see the results I experienced myself.

At CrossFit Kitchener, I run the business side of our gym including technology, marketing and social media. I'm a regular at 5:45am class and once in a while you'll find me coaching a class, putting that CF L1 trainer license to good use.

I started CrossFit in 2013 in our kids program. Right away I realized that this was the sport for me; something I could do long term. I eventually started to move my way up in the programs, doing TeenFit and then finally joining adult classes in 2015. I volunteered with our kids camps and Girl Power program, and this was when I really fell in love with the sport. Anyone can do CrossFit and that is something I very passionately preach!

I obtained my CrossFit Level 1 in 2019, and since then have been coaching our adult classes, Olympic Lifting, CrossFit Kids, Power Hour and Special Olympics Powerlifting. Coaching others is truly my passion, and it’s specifically our IDD (intellectual and developmental disability) athletes that always remind me why I do this.

I am so honoured to call CrossFit Kitchener my home, this community is like no other, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for our gym and our athletes :)

I started CrossFit after I found the activities that I love doing outside of the gym were not as easy as they used to be. Why was I spending time in the gym and not feeling good doing the things I love? This left me frustrated and unmotivated.

By joining CrossFit Kitchener not only did the CrossFit training methodology better prepare me for the sports and hobbies I have outside of the gym like running, cross-country skiing, wakeboarding, mountain biking, and hiking, but I was also moving better, and feeling more confident about myself. Not to mention I was motivated to show up because of the great friends and community we have at CFK. I even met my now wife at a CrossFit class.

My hope as a coach of CFK is to not only help our members safely participate in a training program that I have benefited from, but to empower them to go outside of the gym and enjoy being active and expressing their fitness however they choose to.

I began weight training in my basement in 2020, which ignited my passion for lifting. I had been at a commercial big box gym for 3 years before I decided that I was ready to switch things up. When I tried my first CrossFit class in August 2022, I knew CrossFit was right for me. The opportunity to build community, and the ability to strive for new goals I hadn’t experienced before in a standard gym environment was what committed me to the CrossFit methodology.

I’m a second year Honours Kinesiology student at the University of Waterloo. My goal post-graduation is to attend midwifery school based on my passion for helping people achieve their health and fitness goals, the way CrossFit has helped me achieve mine.

Over the past year I have learned to love Olympic lifting and have participated in several CrossFit competitions. In September 2023, I excitedly decided to take my L1 and have since loved helping you in your CrossFit journey. Can’t wait to see you in class!
