Training each muscle group 1 X per week to failure, abs 2-3 times per week, changing exercises, reps and sets every 4 weeks to switch it up. I do 30-60 mins cardio 4-5 times per week, changing the Cardio each session of workout, i.e. teaching a power pacing class, cardio kick box, running or biking. 1 X per week I participate in a circuit class, alternating resistance with plyometrics, sprints etc.

They are my main sponsors for Ms Fitness Competition; I thank them so much for their support. I own a successful active wear store in Coquitlam “Fit-Tros Athletica”, carrying product lines from Lululemon Athletica, Brasil Sul and Classic Girl. I’ve been on TV for Ms Fitness competition 3 consecutive years, I will air again March to August 2005-making this my 4th year. I will be in Ms Fitness Magazine in 2005 for my success at the Las Vegas Worlds show in September 2004. I will be working on developing a higher profile (increase my exposure) in the industry.
