Karine is originally from Winnipeg. After living in England for 3 years, she is excited to be setting up family life in beautiful Kenora. She worked in sales and marketing for many years, then decided to switch careers to follow her interest in health & wellness. From the moment she tried the unique Essentrics workout, she was hooked. She became a certified Essentrics fitness instructor through the head office in Montreal. For her own body, it strengthened and toned her muscles, relieved chronic back and shoulder pain, increased flexibility, improved her posture and reduced overall stress. She is passionate about movement and sharing Essentrics with others, to help them live a healthy, happy and active life. She loves travelling, the outdoors, hockey, a good glass of wine, dogs, and spending quality time with family and friends. Karine’s classes are fun, no pressure… go at your own pace! Expect great tunes, a little sweat as you work on building those long lean muscles, and a fantastic dynamic stretch (continuously moving with the stretch). Karine is a firm believer that your workout should be enjoyable and pain free. Essentrics is the key to unlocking tight joints and muscles, and rebalancing the full body.
