My name is Laura Clendenning and I'd like to welcome you to my site and tell you a bit about myself!
In 2017, I moved back to the east coast of Canada after living on the west coast in Vancouver, BC for five years. Before moving back home, I spent a month in Sayulita, Mexico followed by a month in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. The main reasons for the major move were to be closer to my family and to fulfill my goals of seeing more of the world. I have a passion for travel, entrepreneurship, music, and all things health and fitness!
I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology at the University of New Brunswick (UNB) in 2012. After moving across the country to Vancouver, BC, I completed my Fitness Trainer Certification with the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) in 2014. In 2019, I am currently working on my Group Fitness Certification.
My Fitness Journey:
Fitness has always been a major part of my life as I was a competitive figure skater for twelve years. Therefore, it was no surprise that after living in Vancouver for about a month, I began training to compete in bikini competitions. I have now competed seven times and will whole-heartedly admit that I have fallen in love with this healthy lifestyle and found my true passion: health and fitness. As of late, I have no plans to continue competing and rather focusing on finding a healthy balance between fitness and fun.
I am SO excited to share that I am opening a boutique gym in my hometown of Fredericton, New Brunswick in May of 2019. We will be offering private personal traning and unique group fitness classes. Please check out SWEAT CLUB!
In addition to training others and growing my business, I created a YouTube channel where I share fitness, lifestyle, and travel videos. I wanted to create a positive place where people who share my passions can come to motivate, support, and learn from each other. Educating and inspiring others is what fuels my passion and I could not imagine doing anything else.
I feel truly blessed to work with the people I have thus far and I would be honoured to be a part of your health and fitness journey!
