About Shawna

You’re probably looking for all kinds of credentials on this page right?

Well, I have degrees, diplomas (B.Ed., B. Kin., Early Childhood Dip) and too many certifications to mention.

More importantly, I’m a student of life, continuously learning and re-inventing myself.

I was a schoolteacher for 20 years and I absolutely loved teaching.

Until I didn’t. Even though I knew I was my students’ favorite teacher. (I’m not bragging, I’m just saying that when you have a passion for something it shows.)

When I felt that I had reached my expiration date as a traditional schoolteacher and that my students deserved more than what I could offer, I decided to move into a teaching position that I was more passionate about.

I re-invented myself as a business owner of a small group personal training studio.I soon realized I couldn’t help enough people in the small setting I had created for myself, so I started again with a fitness boot camp. I enjoyed owning my boot camp for 14 years until I decided it was time to re-invent myself again.

For 12 years I’ve also been working online coaching women with follow along fitness programs and nutrition coaching, now it was time to dive into online coaching full time.

And here I am.

You can check the ‘courses’ tab to see that I have lots to offer you. You’ll see an opportunity to train LIVE with me and my coaches as well, you’ll find both one on one and group nutrition coaching options.

You can also find a tab to get my Amazon best seller: ‘Lose Your Menopause Belly’.

I’m well qualified to help you.

I won’t bore you with details of other accomplishments like being the fitness expert on Spike TV’s ‘Gym Rescue’ or speaking at big events like Fitness Business Summit, the Functional Aging Summit and more or that I’ve written for a number of publications and blogs, and helped create the curriculum and run the #1 franchise ‘Fit Body Boot Camp’s’  University.

To be completely honest, some might say I’m a bit of a ‘workaholic’ but I have no idea what they’re talking about. I feel like most times, I’m never working, I’m just doing what I was born to do.

When you have passion, energy, enthusiasm and creativity just follow.

I love helping others reach their healthy potential. This fitness gig is more than just a ‘job’ for me, it’s my life’s calling.

I live a drama free life in Calgary. AB. I have two amazing children that are now young adults, (I joke that I don’t know how they got so old without my aging a day)…the gift of being their Mom is one I take seriously and will be forever grateful for.

And of course, you’ll see ‘Sev the Wonder Dog’ and ‘Libby the piglet’ with me whenever possible. They are my one-eyed rescue dog & Frenchie rescue who both rescued me.

Hope you enjoy my site, thank you for visiting, let me know how I can help you!
