Barbara Gill: Owner & Personal Trainer(Owner, CanFit Pro, HPFA, Cancer Well Fit Certified, First Aid, CPR/AED)
I have never been a fan of larger big-box gyms; I prefer a health club that has a more personal feel.
I looked all over for a Georgetown fitness centre that fits my needs. Unable to find one, I opened the Glen Fitness Studio in October 2013.
This is a fitness club that is welcoming, spotlessly clean, and professional. It’s a space in which people of all ages and fitness levels can feel at home and comfortable working out. The gym is a place to feel safe – no intimidation!
To lose fat and gain muscle is what its all about!
On a personal level, I have one son who is 15, almost 16, and my husband Wayne. We lived overseas for more than 20 years, and just returned to Canada in 2013.
The gym was a second career for me. I started to train through a 2 year personal trainer program through the Health and Fitness Professionals Association in South Africa. Living in Africa, we were able to do many wonderful and exciting things…..like walking across the salt pans in the Kalahari Desert; scuba diving in Africa, the Seychelles and the Caribbean; and sailing a 43 foot sailboat from Cape Town South Africa to Trinidad and Tobago.
Barbara has always worked out and as a result loves how she feels when she is fit. Being fit has enabled her to lead an exciting lifestyle from her humanitarian work in Africa to walking across the salt pans in the Kalahari Desert; scuba diving in Africa, the Seychelles and the Caribbean; and sailing a 43 foot sailboat from Cape Town South Africa to Trinidad and Tobago.
The year she turned fifty she decided she needed a new challenge in her life and entered a number of 100+ kilometer bike races.
Barbara and her family are residents of Glen Williams.
She believes that fitness needs to be part of a healthy lifestyle to ensure that as we age, we have the mobility, strength, energy and balance to lead a full and healthy life.
Through a thorough assessment, she will help you identify what your focus areas need to be, combine that with your specific goals and write a program that will help you get there!
