I am originally from Romania and obtained a degree in Ballet from the School of Arts. Ballet training has made the transition to weight training an easy one because of the same basics. Both require meticulous focus and technique. A good trainer understands how proper form and technique helps with injury prevention, better lifting and better results.

As a certified Nutritionist, and Personal Trainer I’ve been proudly coaching my clients to long-term success for over 15 years. Whether it be developing my 'The Elite Advantage Nutritional Program' or training my clients week-in, week-out, I believe real success comes through the perfect marriage of good nutrition, proper exercise, and providing my clients with the knowledge and tools to maintain a healthy lifestyle forever!

Having completed the Fitness and Health Promotion Program at Fanshawe College was an amazing learning experience. My grades are exceptionally well and outstanding due to my desire and interest in the health and fitness field. Since age 12 I have always been passionate about improving myself through health and fitness. It has been 10 years since I have been involved in an active lifestyle playing sports and weight training. In high school I played varsity football for 4 years and was on the school weight lifting team.
Things I enjoy doing most are working out, playing sports, going to the movies, and relaxing at patios on summer days. Giving advice and discussing issues and trends related to fitness and health is my way of expressing myself and I enjoy doing it. Not only am I a great listener but paying attention to detail has been my most helpful tool to help others achieve their goals. I promise to work hard and put thought into your workout routines and diet to help you achieve results. I find it enjoyable to help others accomplish their goals because it reflects on how good of a trainer/coach I am. I am an honest person and will let you know if I don’t know the answer to a question, but I will promise you that I will find out the answer.

Certifications
▪ Honours Bachelor of Science - Human Kinetics with Nutrition Minor, University of Guelph
▪ Master's of Arts - Management and Leadership Kinesiology - University of Western Ontario
▪ Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist - National Strength and Conditioning Association
▪ NCCP Level II certified Endurance Running Coach
▪ CPR
▪ AED
After graduating from the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Science in Human Kinetics and an additional Nutrition minor, I knew sport and fitness was the field I wanted to pursue a career in. I am currently completing my Master's at the University of Western Ontario and am enrolled in the Management and Leadership Kinesiology program. This program has a specialization in coaching and I have spent extensive time working with the UWO Track and Field team coaching endurance running in addition to completing courses based around coaching principals.


My personal coaching philosophy is based around educating my clients on not only how to do certain exercises and workouts, but also why these exercises are being done. Having clients understand the reasoning behind exercise selection can increase interest as well as improve commitment levels.


Being able to provide a client with the necessary guidance and encouragement to allow them to reach their fitness goals is an incredibly rewarding experience and one that I hope to pursue on a daily basis.

I have been interested in health and fitness for the majority of my life. I first began training as a long distance runner but shifted my focus to weight training after noticing the huge difference it made to my body shape and overall well being. After starting my Kinesiology degree I began to realize the true importance of exercise and how few people in the world were actually doing it. I knew that I wanted to educate and motivate people to adopt a healthy lifestyle so they too can enjoy the benefits!



It is so cool to have a job where I get to share with people what I love and inspire them to find their true potential. Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege and responsibility to give something back by becoming more. I want to help people become the best that they can be. My clients goals are my goals when we are working together.
