I became interested in physical fitness and training for personal reasons, my health was not great and I am Insulin resistant. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia when I was 29, all over body pain head to toe, when I was 39 they discovered I was becoming Insulin resistant, time to change my life! I studied at home online for Fitness and Nutrition at Stratford University and became a personal trainer and a weight loss coach. At the same time I changed the way I ate and started working out. The first few months were tough, but perseverance and my husband got me through, today I feel great and eat clean.
My advice, don’t wait until your health is bad, be proactive it will change your life!

Anthony graduated from Athol Murray College of Notre Dame in Wilcox Saskatchewan where he studied and participated in training and athletics.
Anthony played hockey for twelve years and left home at the age of 14 to play hockey and attend school at Notre Dame. During his time there he developed a love for training and even gained approval from the strength coach to run the weight room for him when he needed it. He was also voted the position of assistant captain for his hockey and soccer team. Through the years he helped some students train for hockey.
Below is one of his fondest interactions with another hockey player:
"There was a player that kept getting cut every year. After being cut again, he turned to me and asked what he could do to make the team his last year? He was a really good player, but choked under the pressure of the coaches. I told him to stop worrying about the coaches and just play how he wanted. That same day he scored multiple times in his tryout and ended up making the team he wanted."
Helping this player to get on the team he wanted was one of many factors in Anthony's desire to become a Personal Trainer, Weight Loss Coach, and Strength Coach.
