Marie’s love for health and fitness started 14 years ago. It was then that she saw the benefits that nutrition had in the recovery of a Cancer patient. Because of her desire to live longer and enhance her quality of life, she further learned about the strength and energy gained through the use of nutrition and exercise. This interest for health grew as she completed her Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and her Masters in Physical Therapy. Marie has been a Certified Fitness Trainer for over 10 years. Mary is a Certified STOTT Pilates Rehabilitation Instructor, NSCA Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, ACE, REPS and BCRPA Certified Personal Trainer, HCPC Registered Physiotherapist and CWA Climbing Instructor.
