So, I’m finally doing it. Blogging. Whooo, Hooooo. It’s something I have been encouraged to do for years by friends who find me
weird hilarious as well as informative, and clients who wanted some inspirational words and a kick in the ass. I always hesitated mainly because I am very opinionated, brutally honest and have a tendency to go on rants. While I LOVE a good rant, it’s not everyone’s cup of steaming latte. However, if a rant is sometimes on the menu for you, then pull up a chair and enjoy. If not, you’d better get on your bike and pedal away. To be truthful, it took me getting diagnosed with colon cancer in September of 2015 to start this blog. My intention is not to have just another fitness blog. I write about fitness (duh!!), family, cancer and life.
I have been a bossy, but very keen, fitness professional for 25 years and counting. The reason I became a fitness instructor and personal trainer is because I love telling people what to do (and the whole helping people get fit thing as well). I have done pretty much everything from teaching group and individual fitness classes and sessions, presenting master classes to other fitness professionals and running a multi club group fitness program as a Director of Group Fitness. I am a Canadian Fitness Professional. http://www.canfitpro.com
My current passion is running and I will talk endlessly about it if given even a small opportunity. I have also been known to brag about my age group placings in races. I run for many reasons, but a significant one is my refusal to conform to my genetics. Obesity, cardiovascular disease and cancer are ubiquitous throughout my bloodline. However, if I am being completely honest, I just do not want to look awful in my jeans.
I am a regular contributor to The Mighty. You can find all my articles here: https://themighty.com/author/gail-pyne/ I have also contributed to the UK based magazine, Like The Wind.
