The beginning

Although my fitness journey started when I was around the age of 16 this specific journey only started in 2019.  It wasn't until I released from the military that I had to figure out who I was and what I was going to do with my life moving forward. 

I dabbled with a bit of college and university courses but didn't really feel like it was for me.  I volunteered my time in schools and different organizations and it still didn't fill my cup.  In the meantime I was doing exactly what I've been doing for the past 20 years, I was keeping up with my fitness.  

In doing that, I had a lot of girl friends who wanted to join me and who wanted to learn the things I knew.  We would meet up in random parks around Quinte West and we would workout.  Simple as that.  Once in a while turned into every other day, and every other day turned into schedules that we were all held accountable to. 

When the big "P" hit and we weren't even allowed to meet up in parks anymore I realized that my mental health was taking a hit, and I wasn't the only one. 

I was getting many calls and messages from my workout partners saying how much they missed our weekly workouts and that they were struggling mentally with this.  

Something in my head clicked and it kept me up at night.  I'd been down a dark path myself a few times in my life and there's nothing in the world that scared me the most.  I felt the need to help these girls.  Selfishly, help myself!  

So I took a leap.  Rented a space.  Bought some equipment.  And the rest is history!!!!
