Why did I join team CWC? I have been a practitioner in Exercise and Fitness since 2003 and over the last 16 years have worked as an international trainer primarily focusing on corrective fitness and training. I knew there was a higher purpose for me and began my own self-development journey in 2016 to understand my ‘why’ and finding my God given purpose on my life’s journey within the fitness industry, working on developing my strengths and understanding where my weaknesses are. It has always been a passion of mine in teaching those I work with on the importance of training the correct way within their structural alignment and understanding where they misaligned within their body. It has been such a blessing to me to have worked and helped hundreds of people from different ages with a variety of different goals whether it was weight-loss, increase muscle, nutritional plans, injuries, increasing their energy levels, getting better flexibility and mobility.
It was important to me to help educate people to make a lifestyle change and transform their overall wellness within their mind, body and spirit, by eating, moving and thinking right to teach. Core Wellness Centres shares this vision I have been searching for and feel so blessed that our mission’s are in alignment with one another.
