Every person has intrinsic worth.
I see each client not just as another body to train, but a valuable person to care for. For example, when the mind and heart are carrying stress, the body is affected, so we tailor the day’s training with that in mind.
Karlie comes from a background of mentoring and coaching individuals and small groups of people. She took that passion and experience and combined it with her love for fitness and healthy living. She has a heart for the whole person (body, mind, spirit) and she applies that to how she trains clients. A favourite catch phrase her clients hear: “You’re stronger than you think! :)”

"I've had the benefit of working with several trainers over the past year, and found the most growth in my progress under the guidance of Karlie. She is very attentive to my form, offering corrections as needed so as I don't cause injury to myself, and to maximize gains from the activity. She genuinely listens to my questions, taking the time to explain cause and effect, so I can better understand what improvement in myself I could expect over time. She makes certain she understands my fitness goal, so that her instruction sets me up for success. She doesn't talk down to me with industry lingo, but instead uses descriptions I can comprehend, and her tips stick in my head long after our session, that's how I know she's having a positive impact on me. She's very supportive and encouraging, and knows when she can push me to go further. As if that all wasn't enough, she has the sunniest disposition I've ever met, and I thoroughly enjoy being in her presence."
"Spent almost 2 years training with Karlie. Smiling, energetic, always eager to push me and further my limits! Karlie is an amazing instructor! She will listen to your issues patiently and adjust the workouts accordingly while providing great advice in how to better yourself even more. I highly recommend Karlie to anyone that wants someone to keep them engaged and attentive to your needs at all times and is not afraid to push you to be better! Because of her, I am stronger than ever! Thank you Karlie!!!"
"Having done both group fitness classes and worked with other personal trainers throughout the years, I can honestly say that Karlie has made a significant impact on how I work towards my fitness goals. She has worked tirelessly with me to ensure that my form and technique are proper to avoid injury. She inspires me to push harder and attempt things that I hadn't thought were possible (Chin ups? No way!). Karlie's positive attitude, knowledge and passion for fitness makes every session both challenging and fun. Thank you Karlie!"
