Fitgirlsrock Personal Training Studio

Sorry that I haven't written or provided any updates in such a long time. It has been a hectic 2015 so far and I have already put some of my biggest goals into motion. Yay me!

Happy New Year!!!!

My biggest news of the year so far is that I have took the leap and am working on opening my own Fitgirlsrock personal training studio (women only) out of my home. I am hoping (fingers crossed) to open and start taking clients as early as mid to late February. I am renoing my basement and while it is not a huge space I am fairly confident that it will provide all my clients need as well as fulfill my own training needs as well. You may be wondering what happened to my position at Gym Nation.....nothing...I am still employed there as a trainer but I felt the need to do this for myself but also for all those women who #1 may not be able to afford both a gym membership and personal training fees together #2 may also be intimidated by the gym or just shy in general.

*Coming soon to Fort McMurray,AB*

So that's my biggest news. We are at the painting stage, flooring next, wall mirror install and then moving in the equipment. I have gotten all my stuff from the Fitness Depot so far, well that is any additional stuff that I didn't have before. What sorts of equipment will this gym have? I'm so glad you

Power rack/smith machine combo complete with chin-up bar, cable system and attachments
Olympic bar and plates
EZ curl bar
Hex bar
battle rope
Swiss ball
bosu ball
bench (flat/decline/incline)
kettle bells
power blocks instead of dumb bells to save space
lebert bars
push/pull sled
agility ladder
plyo boxes
medicine balls
skipping rope
ab roller
foam rollers
chin-up/dip bar for doorway
big a$$ tire and sledge hammer

I'm super excited about this endeavour so if you are in Fort McMurray, Alberta or know anyone who is, please pass on the word. Contact for more info.

What else have I been up to? Another one of my goals for 2015 was to register and complete my ISSA Nutrition Certification. I just recently registered and so far I am finding the course very interesting and enjoyable.

Other goals are similar to other years; keep pushing on, keep beating PRs, some races will be had, some OCRs but I also want to focus this year on finding a good, comfortable balance.

So what are your 2015 goals? I'd love to hear them.

Until next time,
Stay fit and healthy.
