My love of all things fit & healthy is more than what I do, it’s who I am!
At 56 I’ve dedicated a big part of my life as an active lifestyle motivator. Yoga is my first love. And not the (typical) gym Yoga we know of today. It‘s that of ashrams, led by divine Swamis. Complete with orange robes, shaved heads, devotional incense and celestial chanting. An enchanted forest ashram in Quebec was where I did my teacher training. A undeniable drive to share my passion for fitness led to becoming a certified Personal Trainer. And my Personal Training career began at the prestigious Toronto Fitness Institute. Before long the West Coast mountains beckoned. Making the exciting move to Vancouver BC, debfit® was born.
Vancouver kept me busy! In addition to Personal Training, I also provided on-site corporate fitness and Yoga programs. I also spent an incredible year as a Lululemon Brand Ambassador, And this coveted position gave me the wonderful opportunity to launch the first Lululemon Run Club. Combining my focus of women‘s weight loss with fresh air fitness, Diva Bootcamp was created. As well as the sassy HipFit series.
Further specializing in weight loss, I opened Salt Spring Island Fitness Vacations and wellness retreats. Attracting guests from all over the world.
A passion for educating lead to becoming an Exercise Model. About a hundred how-to videos were shot for FitList YouTube channel. My love of Yoga lead to opening Salt Spring’s premier Hot Yoga Studio. Located in the charming historic Ganges Village Church House. debfit® Studio holds a very special place in my heart. Teaching Yoga under soaring cathedral ceilings by the majestic wood burning stove and lovely harbour views.
A desire for all things fit and healthy doesn’t end with my business. For example, my idea of a ’holiday’ was a year gig as Head Trainer & Yoga Teacher at Parrot Cay COMO Shambhala. Besides being a small secluded Turks & Caicos island, it’s a private celebrity resort. Thus a very interesting experience. Meanwhile, I also found the time to write a short-but-sweet fitness e-book.
