MARIAH HOLLY DAYE and GEORGIE GIVEN!
These two will both be completing their personal training certifications in the near future and we are beyond excited to add them to our team! Here's a little info about each!
"I'm so excited to be a part of the Owen Sound Fitness team! My love and passion for fitness goes as far back as I can remember, but it wasn't until I had my second child that I decided to really educate myself about proper training, weight lifting and nutrition so I could become a healthy roll model for my kids and really transform my mind and body.
With years of trial and error and really working hard towards my personal fitness goals, I've managed to not only get in shape but to be able to maintain it, and that's what I want to help people with the most. I believe in a balanced life style and I believe everyone has different schedules, starting points, goals and preferences. I want to help you make fitness a part of your life style in a way that works for you. I want to help you get excited about your fitness goals and no matter if your goals are to focus on weight lifting to put on muscle, focus on cardio training to run a marathon or just to focus on losing body fat and gaining strength and becoming a healthier more fit you, I know I can help you get there.
A little about me, I'm a mother of two. I am currently taking my personal training course and as soon as it's complete I will be taking on clients which I am so excited about! My favorite styles of training are a mix of weight lifting, boot camps, circuits and hiit training. I like to mix up training so you're not always doing the same thing and won't get bored with the same routines.
I've competed once and it was a great personal experience and definitely challenging and something I hope to do again in the future. I was published in Canada's number one fitness magazine "Inside Fitness" a few times and in 2016 was recognized as one of Canada's top 100 most fit women. I'm very motivated and have great positive energy and I love to meet new people.
I believe everyone should feel healthy, happy, fit and confident and that is my main goal in working with future clients.
I look forward to my new journey here at Owen Sound Fitness and training, and I look forward to building new relationships and helping you achieve your desired fitness goals." - Mariah
"My name is Georgie, I've been bodybuilding seriously for about 2 years, and training for about 3.5 years total to this point. When I was younger I was very competitive with the sports I played (hockey, baseball, basketball, running, etc.) The reasons I started training initially were to strengthen up some areas that I had injured from sports, but to longed be the the smallest - skinniest person everywhere I went... I was sick of that. My goals regarding training have obviously changed and advanced at this point, as I have my first bodybuilding show scheduled in a couple of months from now, and haven't played any sports in years.
In my opinion, bodybuilding gives you back exactly what you give it - however hard you're willing to work is the exact amount of result you'll achieve. Consistently and relentlessly eat, sleep, train, and you will grow. Since I got hooked on bodybuilding 2 years ago, it has been an unwavering dedication to the sport, to which those close to me know to be true. My knowledge regarding training and nutrition has become a strong point for me, as I'm constantly researching, asking questions, contacting professionals, etc. to find out methods to continuously be improving. Always be willing to learn." - Georgie
