Tell us a bit about yourself

I’ve been a lifelong resident of K-W along with my husband Dwayne. We have 2 boys, 20 and 19, and recently became empty nesters…for now! I’ve worked with the City of Kitchener for 24 years and get to spend my work days with the amazing older adults who come to Rockway Community Centre. They’re so inspiring and are incredible role models for positive aging! They make coming to work something I look forward to each day. 

 How long have you been coming to the Studio?

Good question! I started when the studio was at RIM park but can’t remember how many years. 10+ for sure. Time flies when you’re having fun! 

Why did you start coming to the Studio?

I’ve always struggled with commitment to exercise. I’m that person who’s had fitness club memberships and never went. What I noticed about the studio right away was how comfortable it felt to be in smaller, more personal classes with really knowledgeable (and fun!) instructors, who build programs which take into account everyone’s goals and challenges. I come to the studio 4 times a week and am sad when I have to miss a day. All the people I’ve met through classes are what makes the studio extra great!

What other fitness, sport or outdoor activities do you participate in?

I used to play hockey and just started learning how to golf. Apparently my swing looks like a slap shot but hopefully a few more lessons will help.
