Oh the Ah-Ha Moments in Vegas!

They say change happens in a moment. We can struggle for a long time and then you hear, see, or experience something that changes everything. This was my recent experience in Las Vegas at the 2017 Idea Fit Conference.

I headed to Vegas filled with confusion, frustration, nearing burnout, and a sense of needing to step away from my business and came home with clarity and a feeling of excitement to be back in the studio.

Over five days I attended a variety of workshops and courses from marketing to spinning to step classes. I decided to have a well balanced approach because I wanted to bring new ideas to the classes but also learn how to grow my business.   Continue reading →

Coaches Adventure to IdeaFit 2017 Conference

Hot and Sunny Las Vegas (like a hot blow dryer to the face) is where our dynamic team of fun loving coaches headed to this past week (July 18-23) to learn from the best of the best in the world at the Idea Fit 2017 World Convention.

As the owner of Inner Fit, I believe all coaches must continue to add new tools to their teaching tool boxes to stay current and inspired to lead classes.

As coaches, it’s not easy to keep up with industry at the pace it is changing so sometimes the best thing to do is to step away from the studio do something fun with the team to bring back fresh ideas and take some well deserved time off.

I am also so incredibly grateful to have a team of coaches who all year long give back to the members and the studio. Continue reading →

Stepping Outside of Comfort

They say the best things in life are experienced outside your comfort zone and at Inner Fit, we believe this is true because we see the changes in our members when they try something they never thought possible.

This past weekend, two of our coaches and one of our members stepped outside their comfort zones and hit the road in the Penticton  Granfondo (160 km) and the Velocefondo (126 km) cycling event.


In order to complete such a huge distance with hills and heat, you must train. Training means going on long rides each week, strength training, and balancing life in-between.

Over the past 6 months the studio watched as coaches Tania and Breanna hit the road and increased their mileage. There were good rides and bad rides. There was a moment where we thought it was over because sometimes in training you hit a wall but with the right support and motivation you can bounce back.


Denise, a long time road rider was also there to encourage and help our coaches take on something that was new to both of them.

On Sunday July 9, all three hit the road hard and kicked ass. Not only did they rock it by stepping outside their comfort zone; but you could see that they discovered a love for racing along the way.

Life is filled with challenges but like everyone else we always have a choice to literally get back on the bike or walk through the studio doors or simply show up. Riding 126 kms and 160kms is not something you simply hop on and bike a do. You work for months adding mileage and finding the time to train.

With every ride, they pushed their comfort zone a little further. Something to remember is, stepping outside of our comfort zones doesn’t have to be all or nothing, it is little increments at a time that lead to the big moments like the finish line of a race.


Stepping outside of your comfort is a challenge when you life is busy. Tania, Breanna, and Denise are all hard working  moms but they made it happen because they made the choice to make it happen. They put all their doubts to the side and danced with their fears, instead of letting the fears win, and that’s what got them to the finish line with pride in themselves.

As humans, we create obstacles in our minds. Have you ever noticed that the most unlikeliest person is always the one who succeeds and often the ones who had to jump through the biggest hoops to get there, yet the one with everything on their side just couldn’t pull it together?

Why does this happen? Because life is filled with choices. We can choose to show up. We can choose to train. We can choose to not let our heads get in our way. However, you can also choose to stay in bed, skip a workout, eat an unhealthy meal, make excuses and tell yourself a story as to why something is too hard to try. But every morning you wake up you get a choice, it is up to you to decide what you want and how you are going to make it happen.

Life is beautiful outside your comfort zone. It is where your happiness is waiting to find you. When you accomplish something that challenges you both mentally and physically you become filled with a sense of pride and a smile that says it all.

Dream big for yourself. Find something that excites you. Simply show up because sometimes showing up is the hardest thing you have to do.

A huge congrats to these three beautiful ladies for demonstrating that if you really want something that time, money, fears, and schedules cannot stop you.

Let the Dragon Boat Festival Begin!

One of the things that I love most about fitness is the ability to transfer what you do in the studio to what you can accomplish in the real world.

Training for any sport take dedication and patience when learning new skills and several of our Inner Fit members have devoted themselves to the sport of Dragon Boating.

A big congrats to the Dragon Boat crew members from Inner Fit and everyone who competed this weekend! All I can see from the photos are big smiles and I know that means your all in your happy place. Great job ladies!
