Suzanne's battle with her weight began at about the age of 7. She spent her life overweight and quite unhappy with herself.
She has worked very hard to be 175 lbs lighter and approximately 130 inches smaller. She has gone from a size 26 pants to a size 4. Her health issues have reversed themselves completely.
She has competed in provincial weightlifting and powerlifting with multiple 2nd place finishes in her division. In October of 2015 she competed in her first bikini competition with the WBFF confomation division where she finished in the top 5. She was also invited to the worlds and qualified for nationals in powerlifting.
She has been very fortunate to be a fitness coach and personal trainer for the last 3 years. This was her opportunity to showcase what she has learned and help so many others on their weight loss journey. She has truly found her passion for helping others and herself.
Yvonne was a very active child and teenager, involved in competitive sports her whole youth. Then the 20s hit and after having a child the weight was creeping on. Being an only parent didn't allow for a lot of "me" time but that's when she found the gym ... and her passion!! Finding that hour to hit the gym wasn't always easy but you figure it out and realize that giving yourself that hour gives so much more to your kids and family.
Since then she's lost weight (80lbs), gained muscle, found running, found bobybuilding, cross trains, fell in love with yoga. She's run competitively with a 5 mile time of 16:29 and 78:29 her TELY Ten time. She's competed in the Figure class of bodybuilding with 2 first place wins in her class and an overall win and competed nationally.
Yvonne’s passion is fitness and helping people realize what they are capable of and that they can achieve anything. She believes in fitness and what it can give you … more than physically!! To live a healthy life and have quality of life is what it's about!!
