I’m a 24 year old fitness fanatic.
I spent most of my childhood and youth heavily invested in the sport of competitive swimming. Near the end of my swimming career, I had achieved a national level and was training upwards of 9 times a week. For better or worse, my entire existence was based around the sport. After a long bout of contemplation, I decided to retire from the sport in my grade 12 year of high school. Knowing that I was losing my main outlet of physical activity, I needed a replacement to keep in top physical condition (after all a zombie apocalypse could happen at any time). I signed up for a membership at the local gym and started regularly attending drop-in fitness classes. I discovered a whole new world of fitness outside of my swimming bubble. There was so much stuff to learn and I was eager to know it all. I had already completed my first year of sciences at the Campus St. Jean, University of Alberta, when I realized I was in the wrong place and switched my degree from sciences to kinesiology. I finished my Bachelor of Kinesiology in December 2015 and couldn’t be happier.
After learning that more than 75% of North Americans are NOT meeting the minimum physical activity guidelines, I felt compelled to start encouraging people to get moving. Thus came the birth of this blog! I hope you enjoy what you read and feel free to leave me comments! I am always open to feedback.
