In the spring of 1999, I spotted an advertisement in a magazine for a personal training school in Maui, Hawaii, it looked amazing. I set my mind on improving my health and fitness and saving money so I could turn my dream into reality. In the fall of 1999 I attended a six week fitness certification program and my fitness career began. I was hungry for more knowledge and completed the two year Personal Training Certificate through Mount Royal College.
Before I had my three children I was also able to complete a variety of other certification and teach a variety of classes including Step Aerobics, Yoga, Pilates and Bootcamps. I also worked in a fitness center and set up individual personal training programs. It was hard work staying active and raising babies, but a daily dose of sweat was essential for my health and wellness.
It was about 5 years ago when I found the Kettlebell Kickboxing website online and ordered the Scorcher Series. I loved the functional, full body fitness approach of the workouts and knew I would love to take the certification one day. However, I wasn’t sure how I was going to get to New York now that I was a mom in high demand. I am so thankful that Jodi has brought Kettlebell Kickboxing to Canada and can’t wait to share it with others!
