Hey, I'm Samantha and I am the Etobicoke Personal Trainer for Trainers On Site.
Growing up, I have always lived an active lifestyle – playing recreational sports like soccer, basketball, volleyball and track and field throughout my youth. In fact, I evenjoined a gym when I was 14 – and never looked back. I loved how great I felt when I was working out and taking care of myself.
After high school, I moved to Banff, Alberta – where I left the gym. I looked to outdoor activities like trail-running, hiking and snowboarding to maintain my fitness. When I returned from Banff I wanted to learn more and dig deeper about exercise. I knew exercise was good for you, I knew I felt great, but I wanted to learn more.
So back in Toronto I decided to enroll in the Fitness and Health Promotion program at Humber College. Instantly I loved it and immediately knew that I was on the right career path. At this time I also enrolled in a yoga teacher training program. Between working out, yoga and running – I felt amazing.
After the first year of school, I decided to attend classes part time so that I could begin working and sharing my knowledge with others as an Etobicoke Personal Trainer. Initially I completed a personal training internship at Variety Village. This was a facility designed to meet the needs of all abilities. I was working with a variety of people from the general population to those with Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis and many more. I am incredibly passionate about this side of the fitness business.
As an Etobicoke Personal Trainer, I have chosen to do in home personal training because it is a much more personal and intimate approach. I know how busy people are and I find it incredibly rewarding to help people maximize their time, achieve their fitness goals and feel amazing all within the comfort of their own home. What you get out of life is exactly what you put into it.
When I am not acting as your Etobicoke Personal Trainer, I have two other big passions in life - travelling and food & wine. I believe that the more you learn about the world, the more places that you visit, the better understanding you will have of yourself. And as for food and wine, it’s an industry that I grew up in – food plays many roles in our lives. Almost all human interaction is accompanied by food. It provides nourishment, comfort and is a conversation piece.
