Welcome to Evoke Fitness – great to meet you! I have spent my entire life being active and get to spend my career doing what I love! I began coaching various sports including Gymnastics at 14 and have expanded my knowledge base with certifications as a Personal Trainer, Fitness Instructor, and Physiotherapy Assistant. I’m very passionate about supporting others in leading a healthy lifestyle and love approaching this from an all encompassing perspective including healthy eating, exercise, Yoga and movement of all kinds. I enjoy leading individuals as well as whole families in their fitness journeys and watching them thrive as they reach their goals. I’m especially passionate about training women in their journeys through Motherhood. I love supporting women in their fitness during their pregnancies, leading labour inducing workouts, right through the recovery progress after birth. I’m always impressed by the determined Mama Bear! I’m also experienced in training individuals in our Fit for Fire Program and have successfully supported many candidates in passing the CPAT and FPAT tests for Firefighting. I’m so energized by the success stories of our clients and love watching the incredible Evoke Fitness Team get them to their goals everyday!
