Hi there! Thank you for checking out Oasis Training and how I may be able to help you achieve your goals! I have been a successful entrepreneur for over 25 years starting in the computer industry in 1990. I have been an athlete most of my life and have a great desire to help others succeed in any industry or capacity. My journey has included many extreme obstacles that I feel help me to help others.
From 1990-2004 I was a Writer and Computer Instructor working on contract for Microsoft Certification Courses. I had the incredible opportunity to teach all over BC and Nunavut. I also wrote certification training manuals and online exams until I was forced to change careers after a horseback riding accident.
This accident led me to extensive physiotherapy. This is where I began to discover that my personal athletic passion as a long-distance cyclist, fairly competitive runner and strength trainer could become a career as a Certified Personal Trainer and advocate for those wanting to improve their fitness or recover from injuries.
From 2004-2007, I attended Douglas College Sport-Sciences part time to obtain my personal training and group fitness designations with many add-on certifications. I opened my first gym in a garage in 2004 and grew the business to 3 locations with 12 trainers and staff in the Tri-City area by 2012.
After enduring another much more tragic event in 2011, I had to close all my gyms in 2012. I proceeded to go on a sabbatical, searching for an "oasis" to heal. In 2014 I discovered the perfect "Oasis" location to return to providing intensive training for athletes, injured individuals and those dealing with aging or weight issues. As a trauma-informed trainer, I am available to work with frontline workers, military and injured extreme athletes.
With my previous personal and business experiences, I have been evolving Oasis Training into an atmosphere and perfect location for people to feel safe enough to explore their true potential.
I prefer to meet new clients from referrals from people who have enjoyed and succeeded with training with me rather than flashy advertising. I always attribute good business with Community Service and deep relationships with clients and community members. I am always involved in volunteering and supporting community and clients. I also enjoy providing mentorship and education to anyone who wishes to take their lives (goals) to the next level.
When I am not training, I spend my time writing and developing new material. I am also the Nomination Policy Advisor for the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame to ensure a transparent and fair process to honour people who have dedicated their lives to the snowsport industry in Canada. It is extremely rewarding.
The principles used to guide my own life and business are easily transferred into assisting clients by setting goals, creating action plans, always discovering new ways to stay motivated and celebrating milestones on the way to success for everyone.
As a facilitator and trainer I takes the time to research and find out exactly what clients want and aim to deliver only the best. Always focusing on the individual and their quality of life, I will provide detailed programming and make it fun at the same time as achieving results. With many life experiences along with education I can't wait to be a small part of a client's success journey.
Currently in the works behind the scenes, Oasis Training services will be adding intensive Onsite Training Camps for Athletes.
