I was lucky enough to be invited to FitClub24 by a good friend of mine, Vincent. I came in on a Saturday morning for a bootcamp, stayed for the Fit Coach Training and was hooked right away. I’ve been around many gyms, fitness centres and sports teams throughout my life but I have never felt such a positive and motivating energy as I did that morning! I was sure on the spot that I wanted to be part of this amazing family, decided to take the plunge and sign up as a Fit Coach.
After graduating last year from Concordia University with a specialization in Athlethic Therapy I felt a little lost on what I wanted to focus on as a career. The timing to walk into FitClub could not have been better! I found a place that allows me to follow my passion of helping others, while getting into the best shape of my life at the same time. Since I was little I’ve always been very active and involved in sports, playing basketball, volleyball and baseball throughout my teenage years. However, my problem was that I had no idea how to eat in a healthy way! In the last 7 months at FitClub24, I’ve been sticking to my nutrition plan and have been able to transform my body! I’ve lost 5.5% body fat, gained 4lbs of lean muscle and dropped my metabolic age by 11 years. I feel amazing!! After seeing the results that I got for myself, it’s been easy inviting friends, family and strangers into the club so that they can get into their best shape! My job is to teach people how to eat in a healthy, and enjoyable way as well as helping them along in their personalized fitness plans – who can ask for a better job than that?!
My favourite part about being a Fit Coach is that I get to learn and grow every day. I’m constantly learning about nutrition, business, fitness and personal development. Being surrounded by so many positive and driven people has truly changed the way I see myself. I feel more confident, more motivated and a lot more eager to follow my dreams. FitClub24 has taught me to make goals for myself and how to make plans to achieve those goals. I can genuinely say that I look forward to working as a Fit Coach every day. I know that because as soon as I walk through those doors I’ll be surrounded by smiles, words of encouragement and a whole lot of energy!
Walking into the doors of FitClub24 seven months ago was the best decision I’ve made in a long time. Since then I’ve made some strong friendships, matured greatly and found a job that I look forward to continuing for many years to come. I’m very thankful for everyone I’ve met and everything I’ve learned along the way. I cannot wait to see what the next year brings, and how many lives I can change in the meanwhile!
Work hard, train hard, eat clean and be happy!!
