 Presenter: Kyla Gagnon has worked in fitness as a personal trainer and nutrition coach for 15 years and in recent years has reconnected with her love of yoga. Kyla has been witness to some incredible life changes in her clients, who range from teenagers to seniors, at all fitness levels. She is committed to teaching safe and effective exercise strategies and combined with self-compassion, patience and love.
Presenter: Jen Rudy started working as a personal trainer in 2008 and immediately was hungry for more knowledge.
She completed a degree in Sport, Health, and Exercise Science as well as advanced certifications in fascial stretch therapy, nutrition, and functional strength training.  Her journey between being a top-placing fitness competitor and someone who loves food has helped her learn valuable first hand experience in how to coach everyday clients through the struggles of behaviour change and how to apply evidence-based practices.  What gets her excited everyday is having the opportunity to help others to ditch the loopty-loop of weight loss/regain (and the mental gymnastics that go along with that) for permanent fat loss.
