DID YOU KNOW
Over 40% of Canadians are at high risk of developing mental health issues ranging from stress to depression. Millennials, women, and low-income earners are at greatest risk. LGBTQ+ individuals face a much larger risk due to socio-economic factors such as discrimination, violence, accessibility, and inclusion. That’s why ArtsFitness is here to provide a safe space where your individual fitness needs are addressed in a respectful non-judgmental way.
Fast forward. I have been a fitness coach for 7+ years. I am also a bodyworker now (fascial stretch therapy) and yoga teacher. I worked in a gym full-time for almost 5 years. I faced homophobia, and heard many stories of fear and exclusion from individuals not fitting in with the status quo or inherent toxic masculinity of the industry.
So, today, I am also a fitness activist. I work with various marginal populations teaching movement in a way that presents fitness as a human right and a privilege, rather than a product of shame or guilt. I enjoy breaking down complex science into more tangible tidbits that can lead to empowerment, growth and pride. I offer low-cost options as much as possible so that more people can access the guidance of a coach without phenomenal cost barriers. I am, also, one of the first coaches in Toronto, Canada to tailor my services to LGBTQ+ folks. My clients range from HIV+ men to older adults to young adults struggling with their mental health.
