Who is Ariana?

rock-and-roll-vancouverA BCRPA Personal Trainer, Canfitpro Nutrition and Weightloss Specialist, avid runner and triathlete, and lover of lifting heavy things, I’m here to help you reach your running goals so you can focus on bringing all of your other dreams to life.

In 2012, an unhealthy relationship with alcohol led me to devote myself to beginning my own evolutionary journey by focusing my attention on my health and fitness. Combining regular exercise with proper nutrition allowed me to transform my body and supercharge my mindset, which gave me the confidence boost I needed to get out there and chase my dreams.

I soon discovered that going for a run was more than a great way to burn off a hangover, and I began training for 5k and 10k races before taking the leap to my first half marathon. After a sub-two hour race I thought I was invincible and began training for my next half immediately.

A lot of little mistakes along the way culminated into an injury that put a halt to my running and forever changed the way I approach my training. It was a dark place that left me feeling unmotivated and resentful.

But I’m a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and now over two years later I’ve taken the lessons I’ve learned and packaged them up into a holistic training program that covers not just running, but also cross-training, nutrition, and a healthy mindset.

I never was and never will be a competitive athlete, but by thinking and training like one I’ve been able to reach new heights in my fitness level, all while bringing my dreams of making this world a better place to life.

I’m here to help you achieve the same.
