I am a 4 time Canadian National Champion in the sport of Taekwondo in hopes of being in the 2016 Olympic Games. Other training specialties include: Gymnastics, freerunning/parkour, and martial arts stunts for films.

My passion for martial arts has led me into the fitness industry. Teaching Tae kwon do, and working with clients personal training share very similar principles. I find it fulfilling mentoring and motivating others to help them attain and accomplish their goals.

My personal growth in my martial arts training and overall fitness has come by following the 4 “D’s” of success – desire, determination, dedication, and discipline. These are the 4 principles that I hope to instill in every client who has decided to make fitness apart of their lifestyle.
