Certified Personal Trainer

First Aid CPR & AED Certified

I was born in Belgium and moved to Canada when I was 13 years old.
I’ve always had a passion for fitness, which lead me to pursue an education at Conestoga College in the Fitness and Health Promotion Program.
I started working as personal trainer and am excited to now join the martial arts world.
I have experience working with kids and enjoy it as much as fitness. What a perfect place for myself!
