Up until she attended University, Kayla was a competitive gymnast. The years of training and discipline gave her an appreciation for what it takes to develop and maintain a strong physical condition. Just as important were the lessons she learned about positive mentality, perseverance and commitment. After University Kayla began competing in the Canadian Bodybuilding Federation in the Bikini Category, where she has represented Nova Scotia provincially and nationally. More recently she competed in Olympic Weighting at the Nova Scotia Championships. Kayla’s biggest lesson, and the most important message she shares with her clients, friends and family is that with enough passion, and discipline, you can do anything you put your mind to!

Joy's love for the gym is based on the physical and the mental challenges that occur within an hour of sweating and unlike sport, she believes that you are truly only competing with yourself!
