My Transformation Experiences: (start point / obstacles / milestones / triumphs)
I've been active in the health and fitness industry for more than half my life. I love helping people realize their goals both physically and mentally, and in sharing my own transformation, I believe I am able to help others realize their potentials.
In becoming the ME i desire to be, I Dare myself to master my empowerment in the following ways AND here is why:
"If you want truly to understand something, try to change it."
"Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work."
"There is a great difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem, and a concerned person solves a problem."
"Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts."
I have already been stepping up to my own plate / daring myself to stretch my comfort zone and here are some of my results and proud moments.
With the addition of Fitness Town's 7 & 8th locations, we are excited to announce that we are now even better able to service the Vancouver lower mainland population with all their fitness needs.
