Rebecca entered the world of fitness and sport at a very young age. She began doing competitive gymnastics at the tender age of 4 and power tumbling at age 7. After about 5-6 years of rigorous gymnastics training she moved toward the world of competitive team sports such as basketball, soccer, and volleyball. She trained and played several days per week (oftentimes juggling two or three different disciplines and teams per day). She was often the odd man out on her various sports teams as she, unlike the majority actually welcomed and enjoyed the conditioning and strengthening protocols.
During her high school years she earned many athletic accolades. She also had her first very brief but positive experience lifting weights and working out in an actual gym. During her time at the University of Ottawa she found a place to call home. That place was the gym, and since then she has never left. In university, she began taking certification courses to further her knowledge of the human body, how it works, and how to help people reach their full potential through training. Toward the end of her undergraduate degree she made the wild decision to compete in her first fitness competition. This decision was fueled by her drive and desire to become the best possible version of herself.
To date Rebecca has successfully competed in six fitness competitions. She was very successful in her first competition which was in 2014, placing in the top 5 and qualifying for provincials. Although she was not completely in love with the “being on stage” portion, she loved having a reason to train, a goal, a vision, and an event to showcase her hard work. In 2015 she competed on the provincial stage and placed top 5 again which qualified her for nationals. In the two and a half years that Rebecca has been weight training she has worked with and been coached by highly esteemed and experienced coaches and fitness trainers.
Near the end of 2015 Rebecca began training under the guidance of world renown coach, Jean-Jacques Barrett. She decided to take a year to rebuild her physique and polish her stage performance so that she could present a new and improved overall package on the stage in November 2016. We are extremely proud to say she did exactly that. Not only did she crack top three for the first time; she came away the proud winner of the Tier 3 Athletic Women's Physique division at the Physique Canada CoupePro Gym Competition.
Rebecca truly believes that health and wellness are more than just quantitative figures and go far beyond any scale. She looks forward to sharing her passion with you.
Becky has many other fitness courses and workshops under her belt and is always striving to learn more and keep herself up to date. Her clients have ranged from the ages of 8 – 70+ , pre & postnatal fitness, weight loss, sport specific strengthening and conditioning, and physio referrals (various injuries). She is passionate about making fitness enjoyable and encourages people to find an activity they find fun, when you have fun, achieving your goals doesn't seem as hard. Keeping that in mind don’t be fooled by her innocent sweet demeanor and smile. She’s always smiling but she can definitely put you through your paces!
