I am a happily married, strong, confident, independent woman and a mother of 2 great kids!! I try to practice what I preach each day through living a healthy, balanced life. I enjoy helping others to help themselves whether it be training them personally or in a fitness class or chatting about nutrition.
I am… Certified through Can-Fit Pro as a Fitness Instructor and a Personal Training specialist. Canadian Red Cross Certified CPR/AED level C. St John Ambulance First Aid. CSNN Certificate (Nutrition). Certified TRX Suspension and Rip Cord Trainer. Pre and Post Natal and levels 1 and 2 stability Ball training. Maddog Spin Instructor. Always reading, attending workshops and conferences to stay up to date on the ever changing industry. I’ve worked in various other fitness settings/gyms and in my own home and have now become settled at NFC. I currently teach Spin and Core and love the enthusiasm each of you bring to class. It’s great to see the improvements every week in strength and endurance and the encouragement you give to each other. Keep up the AWESOME work.
Tammy’s Yoga journey began in 2001 when she discovered yoga as a Certified Can-Fit Pro Personal Trainer. She began instructing yoga in 2004 and in 2009 became a Certified Yoga Teacher through Heather Greaves and Integrated Yoga Therapy. In 2011, during her Meditation Teacher Certification training with Samagra, Tammy travelled to India where her respect for yoga deepened. Tammy believes that all life is yoga and that the more we breathe, relax and exercise with asanas, the more we cultivate an attitude of peace, acceptance and joy.
Hi there, I’m Sheree! I am one of the Certified Aqua Fitness Instructors here at the Norfolk Fitness Centre. I have been teaching Aqua Fitness for 25 years now and the last 2 ½ years here. I am also a Full-time certified Supervising Instructor and Guard for the county. In my spare time I enjoy competing in UFE shows, challenging myself to reach new levels in training and diet. I love doing many activities such as rollerblading, snowboarding, skiing, walks, and riding my bike. I also enjoy my down time where I can just sit and read a book or float and tan in my pool!! I am very happy to be part of such an amazing team here at the Norfolk Fitness Centre.
My name is Melissa Long Ashley, I was born and raised in Simcoe and love my hometown! I am very happily married with two grown daughters. During the day I am an insurance broker and I love helping clients make sure their biggest assets are protected. Outside of the office, I love to teach fitness, helping people protect another important asset, their health!! I enjoy spending time with my husband on our boat fishing and with my family at our cottage. I love to read, cross country ski, and ride my bike.
Hope has been practicing Yoga for over 10 years. She felt the call to teach after her love of the practice grew and she fully realized not only the physical, but also the mental and spiritual ways Yoga had helped transform her life over the past few years. She completed her 200 hour teacher training in Dharmshala, India, home of Yoga, in February 2019 and has been teaching private and public classes since.
In her spare time she loves being with her loved ones (human and animals), creating moon manifestation rituals, and getting creative in her blog.
Hope loves to incorporate traditional aspects of Yoga into her practice and teachings including Pranayama (breath work) and meditation.
Her favorite Asanas include expansive poses including: pigeon, butterfly, and upward facing dog.
Hi my name is Lynn Robinson – Smith!
I’ve been hanging out in H-N my whole life and it’s no surprise I LOVE where I live, my Tribe, the people, the clubs, our trails, the lake, live music, never too much dancing for this girl …and my new most favorite group that I belong to (FEMFOLK) ! Empowering and supporting others, and coaching how to embrace a healthy lifestyle is my passion and my job. I’m beyond excited to be teaching at Norfolk Fitness Centre, and I am really looking forward to meeting new friends and seeing old friends too.
You can catch me teaching our NEW Active Aging class at 11:30 Wed (for the silver sneaker) – an infusion class of cardio, balance, flexibility and strengthening with a long stretch to wrap it up!
