Ways to train:

Your session will include a consultation with your trainer discussing your fitness goals, and an optional weigh-in + body measurement on our Tanida Body Composition scale.
Please let your trainer know if you would also like to take before and after photos. Depending on what your goals are, you will see changes in your measurement before you see changes on the scale.

Most mornings - at 6am, you will find me dancing on a bike- in a dark room, surrounded by the most incredible – AMAZING people. The energy created in this space feels like PURE magic- I am so inspired by the commitment, hard work and sweaty smiles that wake up to KICK ASS while the world is still sleeping.
I fell in love with fitness in 2004. In November 2004 I completed my BCRPA certification in Personal Training and finished my BCPRA Group Fitness Certification in 2005 - I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to make my mark in the fitness industry - attending as many conferences, travelling as far as I could to learn from the best of the best in the fitness industry.
Voted Penticton’s “Best of The Best” Fitness Trainer & Coach of the year is such an honor. I have been surrounded by amazing people in the industry who have helped me become the trainer I am today. I share this honor with my amazing participants & clients who continuously set goals, wake up & work hard. To the trainers and coaches who gave me the courage to make my way to the front row all those years ago. Thank you!

My favorite exercise? The one that makes you feel the strongest!! Every muscle is built to be challenged, and the BEST success comes from the hardest work.
When I’m not in the gym, you will find me spending time with my family & friends, playing in the snow or at the beach, planning future vacations and sipping my favorite wine.
I look forward to helping YOU find your BEST self at PURE GYM in Penticton!
