Personal Trainer and Transformation Coach
Olivia is a certified personal trainer whose passion for fitness was ignited after a 7-year career as a competitive swimmer came to an end. The challenge of training for swimming alongside Olympic athletes became too much, so when she left the sport she felt a void, lack of inspiration, and motivation.
After some reflection, however, she knew she needed to do something to get back in shape and consistently challenge herself, so she began resistance training. Through her journey from transitioning out of competitive sports, to recreational training, and now becoming a fitness coach, she can confidently say she is happiest when working with others and inspiring them to reach their health and fitness goals whether for competitive reasons or lifelong health!
