I have always been an active person, however wasn’t in the physical condition that I wanted to be in as I inched up on my 40th birthday, which motivated me to get a membership at Wrench Fitness. That was several years ago and my passion for training, lifting weights and eating clean has only grown stronger. I was motivated the first time I went to the gym by the contest pictures displayed on the wall. I told myself that one day I would step up on the stage too. My first bodybuilding competition was in the spring of 2014 with the Saskatchewan Amateur Body Building Association; I placed first in Master Bikini and went on to Provincials that same year, again taking first place in the Master Bikini category. In 2015 I opted to again compete Provincially and placed first again in my category, qualifying me for Nationals! In the spring of 2016 I competed in my first National competition (Winnipeg) and was very pleased with my results, taking 6th place and then 3rd at the International Ben Weider Classic hosted later that fall in Edmonton. Since 2016 my focus has turned to maintaining a balanced lifestyle including training and clean eating for overall health and fitness.
In addition to my Certified Fitness Trainer (2014) designation, I am also a Certified Nutrition Manager and a member of the Canadian Society of Nutrition Management as well as serving on the Board of Directors for the Saskatchewan Society of Nutrition Management. I received my diploma in Nutrition Management from SIAST in 1994. In 2016 I obtained my Specialist in Fitness Nutrition certification and then went on to complete the International Sports Science Association Body Building Specialist certification in 2018. I am a firm believer in continuing education and as such, commit to continuing to strive to learn more so that I can share not only my experience but knowledge with my clients.
I am the owner of TEAM IRON elles Personal Training, operating out of my home gym, Wrench Fitness. Services include one on one training, partner training, distance support and wellness accountability packages as well as customized meal and training plans. https://facebook.com/ironelles
I enjoy meeting new people and helping them to discover their inner athlete, especially when they never saw themselves as being an athlete before coming to the gym. I understand physical challenges as I have struggled with Osteoarthritis for many years in my shoulder, and have learned how to safely train around it, which I can help my clients do as well with their physical limitations.
I train my clients with the same dedication and commitment that I train myself and don’t judge the condition that you start in because I am proud of you for making the first step toward a stronger and healthier you!
