Owner/Personal Trainer/Spin Instructor

Health and wellness has always been a passion for me. Throughout my childhood I played girls hockey, volleyball, basketball and excelled at girls soccer were I played for the Glengarry Soccer League, the Char-Lan Soccer League and for the Cornwall Blazers. It was through soccer where scouts from the US colleges came to watch me play. Upon graduating high school I was fortunate to receive a full scholarship playing NCAA soccer in Kentucky and Massachusetts where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in education Majoring in PhysEd and minoring in Psychology.
My degree in education led me to a successful 19-year career in teaching, however, this just wasn’t enough for me, and my true passion in the fitness world hadn’t been addressed yet. Two years ago, after taking some time to think about the future I finally decided to make my dreams come true and started on the path to become a personal trainer. I did a lot of research and signed myself up and received my certification at Can Fit Pro and then went on to get certified at the CORE spin studio, first aid, Kettlebell and Technique and attended the Fletcher Pilates workshop. Most recently I have become certified as a Functional Range Conditioning Coach, which is a comprehensive joint training system based on scientific principles and research.
Throughout my life I have always been passionate about personal training and education, I believe these two attributes is what sets myself and KPFit apart from the rest. With my background in Psychology and the years spent dealing with high needs individuals at school, I understand fully what each person needs and how to help them achieve their goals. KPFit was designed to be a studio gym like no other, it’s a friendly, non-intimidating space where you can get in shape at your own pace and we are here to help every step of the way.

As a busy working wife/mom of 3, I really struggled to exercise a part of my daily/weekly…(ok at all) schedule! I Love team sports but after having kids I made really good excuses not to be active – until KPFit!! I tried spinning for the first time last March and LOVED it. I immediately started making it a priority in my life and I have even turned down shopping trips for spinning. At age 44, I wanted to do something for myself and step outside my comfort zone. The CORE-Cycling course was a great challenge physically and mentally, I truly love our quickly growing family at KPFit and can’t wait to ride with you all. It has become a life-style change for me and I always leave feeling supported and energized.

In October, 2018 I completed my Personal Training Certification with CanFit Pro and my indoor cycling certification with CORE . I Love being active! Whether half marathons, years of triathlon training, road racing , soccer, mud and spartan runs, or working out is part of who I am. I love competition and love to see people trying to better themselves in their own personal way. Physical activity for me is a means or stress relief, personal empowerment, confidence and knowing I work hard to be the best that I can be. And as you know, it is work! But work that I love to do.   Andree
