Certifications: Active Older Adult, Resistance Training
I certified through MFC in 2007 as a Resistance Training Instructor and have worked for the City of Winnipeg as a fitness leader at St. James Centennial Pool & Fitness Complex since that time. In 2013 I added the MFC Active Older Adult certification because I realized that this age group is one of my favourites to work with. Since gaining that certification I have become an OA instructor in Headingley and at the Winnipeg Winter Club. I also instruct the fitness portion of the Minds in Motion program offered through community partnerships with the Alzheimer's Society, have my PACE (People with Arthritis Can Exercise) qualification and have taken the Drums Alive certification course that was offered in Winnipeg several years ago. Over the past two years I have begun teaching a specialty class that brings me great fulfillment. It is offered through the City of Winnipeg, and the name of the course is "Plus Size Fitness". I have taken to calling it my "Joy of Movement" class because my main goal for the class is to instill that mindset in my participants. I take a holistic approach and program the class very carefully in order to address all levels of ability and to make it a place where participants succeed,move, and, most importantly, feel accepted and safe to be themselves. Weight loss is NOT the focus of the class, although this can certainly occur for some participants. in 2014 I became a Can-fit-pro Personal Training Specialist. I LOVE to learn and have completed five courses at the University of Winnipeg towards a Kinesiology degree. Because I already have a B. Sc. as well as a B. Music, I am about half way through that degree at this time. Please visit my website at www.getfitwithjan.com for more information.
