My name is Haley and I decided to start Shape180 more than 7 years ago as a way to share my experiences and knowledge in regards to fitness and health.
When I was younger I wasn’t happy with the way I looked. Puberty wasn’t nice to me; I was overweight and uncomfortable. Back then I didn’t have a clue how to take care of myself when it came to proper nutrition and exercise.
So I made a change – struggled for a long time; but kept moving and working towards a healthier body both inside and out. I came to realize that this is something I want to help others with, so I continued expanding my knowledge and decided to learn everything I can about nutrition, human anatomy and physiology, strength and conditioning, programming, and much more.
I have two diplomas, one in fitness and health promotions; the other in strength and sports conditioning. I’m a certified lifeguard (pool), yoga instructor, and a level 1 weightlifting coach with the Ontario Weightlifting Association.
In October 2018 I was hired as a full-time Fitness and Sports Instructor as part of the PSP (Personal Support Programs) team who works to improve the physical fitness of Canadian Armed Forces military members.
Admittedly, over the last few years I have not been attending to my website. I’m trying to change that, with the goal of adding 1 post a week. If there are any topics you would like me to write about, or if you would like some help with your fitness goals, don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
Thanks for stopping by!
Keep moving 🙂
