Colleen has been a successful entrepreneur for over 25 years starting in the computer industry in 1990. She has been an athlete most of her life and has a great desire to help others succeed in any industry or capacity.
From 1990-2004 she was a Writer and Computer Instructor working on contract for Microsoft Certification Courses. She taught all over BC and Nunavut. She taught and wrote training manuals and online exams until she was forced to change careers after a horseback riding accident.
This accident led her to extensive physiotherapy. This is where she began to discover her personal athletic passion as a long-distance cyclist, fairly competitive runner and strength trainer could help her become a Certified Personal Trainer and advocate for those wanting to improve their fitness or recover from injuries. This accident became a gift that changed her life!
She attended Douglas College Sport-Sciences with many add-on certifications. She opened her first gym in a garage in 2000 and grew the business to 3 locations with 12 trainers and staff in the Tri-City area by 2012.
In 2014 she discovered the perfect "Oasis" location to provide intensive training for athletes, injured individuals and those dealing with aging or weight issues.
For many years she has been evolving Oasis Training into an atmosphere and perfect location for people to feel safe enough to explore their true potential.
Soon this location will host holistic health and fitness training getaways on the Sunshine Coast, BC with all it has to offer!
Colleen attributes good business with Community Service and deep relationships with clients and community members. Always involved in volunteering and supporting community and clients, Colleen also enjoys providing mentorship and education to anyone who wishes to take their lives (goals) to the next level.
In her writing career (besides developing educational material), she is 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.
The principles she uses to guide her own life and business are easily transferred into assisting clients by setting goals, creating action plans and motivating them to continue to success.
As a facilitator and trainer she takes the time to research and find out exactly what clients want and aims to deliver only the best. Always focusing on the individual and their quality of life, she will provide detailed programming and make it fun at the same time as achieving results. She has many life experiences along with education to help a wide range of needs.
The newest addition to Oasis Training services will be Online Meal Prep Parties with sound nutrition and preparation provided by the amazing Chef Cleo as well as intensive Onsite Training for Elite Athletes
