Karine took her Business Degree at the University of Manitoba and worked in sales & marketing for over 10 years. With increasing stress on her health at a young age, she decided to switch careers and explore the world of health & wellness. She was lucky that various life events aligned at the time, which gave her the opportunity to consider an Essentrics instructor certification. It was her mother who introduced her to the workout as she was taking classes with a local instructor in her hometown of Winnipeg. From the moment Karine tried her first Essentrics class, she was hooked.
"It was so beneficial for my own health and the science behind the program fascinated me. I had always exercised in the more traditional sense, but Essentrics was such a unique program and completely different from anything else I had tried. I decided that my new path was going to be teaching Essentrics, bringing together my interest in health & wellness along with the world of small business".
Karine completed her Essentrics certification in 2015 and started teaching in 2016.
"I love seeing the changes or improvements of my clients. Both physical and mental. It’s amazing to hear feedback and know that I am helping others live a healthier and more active lifestyle. Clients telling me they feel stronger, they have more energy, they have less pain, they can touch their toes, they can participate more with their grandkids. I love sharing my passion for Essentrics because I truly believe that it is a game changer for your health. My goal is to make classes fun and motivating".
Sharron is a certified fitness instructor who has been involved in the fitness industry for over 20 years.
With a background in Cecchetti Ballet, her favourite workouts usually have a dance component.
Having achieved certification in Pilates, Barre, Yoga fit, Zumba and Schwinn Indoor Cycle, variety is a constant in her classes.
Sharron is a believer in Committing to a Program. Programs designed by a fitness instructor provide structure in a format designed
to be followed in a specific order for optimum results. Choosing random workouts equal random results and may lead
to burnout and injury. A progressive program be it in Barre, Yoga, Pilates or Cardio based will introduce the movement ensuring correct alignment
Programs provide goals, the goal of finishing a program of even 4 classes sometimes gives participants the jump start they need to continue on their
own fitness journey. Programs provide a sense of camaraderie. A spirit of friendship and community develops with like minded people showing up together.
