The same mindset that makes you successful in life can make you successful in fitness, and vice versa.

My name is Corrie Alexander, a proud Canadian and home fitness advocate.
I started out as a busy, career-minded gal who was out of shape but felt like she had no time for exercise.
After several, mostly-sedentary years working a 9-5 desk job, I felt sluggish, uncomfortable in my clothes, and experienced long stretches of low mood that bordered on depression.
I’d been an avid runner in my twenties but had to stop due to a hip injury. I knew I needed to find some other form of physical activity to get healthy.
That Christmas in 2016, my spouse gifted me a FitBit and I started focusing on meeting step count goals and slowly integrating exercise back into my day to day life.
Walking, combined with a new simple diet strategy helped me lose 10 pounds that year.
In November of 2017, I discovered resistance HIIT and I’ve been hooked ever since! I’ve lost another 15 lbs since then, for a total loss of 25 lbs.
More importantly, I have more energy, strength, creativity, and motivation to succeed than ever before. I know that exercise has everything to do with this shift in mindset!
My passion for exercise led me to obtain a Personal Training Certification with the ISSA so I can help others with their fitness journey.
