My name is Suzi and I am a Certified CanFitPto Fitness Instructor Specialist, CALA Group Aquafitness Leader and CCAA Certified Seniors Fitness Instructor. I am also a licensed Hip Hop Hustle Instructor and a licensed Zumba, Zumba Gold, Zumbatomic, Zumba Toning and Aqua Zumba Instructor living in Nova Scotia, Canada.
I went to college after high school and graduated from Business Administration with a concentration in Financial Services. I come from a strong business background having spent over 5 years as an accredited insurance agent for a local brokerage before making a complete career change going from a 9-5 office job to a career in fitness. Although the road hasn’t always been easy, I haven’t regretted my change in careers once. I now get to earn a living while helping to make people fitter, stronger, healthier, and *hopefully* happier. It is an amazing thing to be such a huge part of so many peoples lives, and I feel very blessed to be able to what I do.
So with that in mind, it might surprise you to find out that I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia over 10 years ago. I’ve spent more of my life being ill than being healthy, and certainly would have never in a million years guessed that I would end up where I am today. I think that is what makes my story different from many of the other healthy living bloggers out there, because I’m fighting every day to do what I do against chronic body pain, exhaustion and a slew of other health problems.
But I make it work, and I believe you can to – whatever your issues might be.
Besides being a fitness instructor I am also married to my best friend,
am an aunt to an awesome nephew and an adorable niece,
the adopted mother to two furry little tykes. A long lanky orange tabby named Pekoe
and a short rollie pollie grey cat named Ollie.
I like to run – but only sometimes
I like to eat – at all times
I’m also a crazy huge Disney fan, and ever since our trip there in 2012 I’ve become totally obsessed. I can’t wait to go back!
Besides all of that, I am an avid movie watcher, an obsessive reader, a Downton Abbey addict, a cheese loving fool and unfortunately for me probably the biggest klutz and the person with the worst “unfortunate” luck you will ever meet!
Thanks so much for dropping by my blog, why not take a look around and stay a while? I hope you find something you like – and I hope you’ll visit again soon!
