Joelle

Fitness Instructor

Health and fitness have always been a major component of Joelle’s life. Growing up, she played several team and individual sports but hockey became her main focus. Her hockey career ended at the University level with the U of A Pandas. There, she achieved a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology, majoring in sports performance. Her degree brought her experience working with a variety of clientele. She is currently training hockey teams and group classes in Sherwood Park and is the trainer for HIIT and targeted group exercise classes at Sirona.

Joelle’s passion for fitness comes from her desire to make a difference in others’ lives and to make people feel great about themselves. Health and fitness are for everyone and there is a direct relationship between physical and mental health. Joelle seeks to help others feel strong, healthy, confident and happy – not only through physical activity but also through every interaction and experience.
