I started CrossFit back in 2013 when I realized I needed a change in my life.  I quickly became very passionate about CrossFit and fitness in general. I started to coach in 2014 and received my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate shortly after.  As I was already a hockey and soccer coach, I went and got my CrossFit Kids Certification in 2015, and started coaching Kids classes.  During 2015 I was given the opportunity to purchase Ignite Fitness. I have a Bachelor of Commerce Degree and realized that with my degree and my passion for CrossFit, Health, and nutrition this was the perfect mix. I took over Ignite in December of 2015.

 I look forward to helping as many people as I can become better versions of themselves and live healthy lifestyles.  I believe what we learn in a CrossFit Box filters into the rest of our lives.  When we gain confidence and realize our true potential we become aware that we are capable of more than we imagined, CrossFit does that.  To quote Greg Glassman, CrossFit Founder, “CrossFit makes Better People”.
