Hi, I'm Rikki!

Exercise has always been an important part of my life. 


Growing up I played tennis 5 days a week year I participated in seasonal team sports. 


In my final year of university I discovered water exercise!

I decided to become an Aqua fitness instructor.


At 24 years old, a martial arts accident left me with a knee injury.

In the 30 years that followed, I worked as a fitness professional, immigrated from South Africa to Canada, married, raised a family, and continued to exercise regularly

At 54 years old, I had a Total Knee Replacement.

l bring my life experiences into my professional life as a personal trainer.

  • Exercise options for those with an injury, disability, medical condition or any other limitation

  • Custom made to accommodate and move forwards with health and fitness.
