Mary Ann believes that to be a true health and fitness role model, you have to “walk the talk”. That means learning and applying what you know about health into your own daily practices and routines. She strength trains 3x/week; participates in Bikram’s yoga at least weekly to de-stress and cleanse her mind and incorporates cardio activity outdoors as much as she can by walking, hiking, and biking. Daily rituals include meditation, journal writing, daydreaming and spending time connecting with loved ones. She drinks lots of water to stay hydrated and constantly has to remind herself to not take life so seriously.
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Manitoba, her goal is to continually teach and learn from others about the importance of activity, mental stimulation and helping people. She has focused her nursing primarily on community development, health promotion, research and nursing informatics.
Other accomplishments include:
- Personal Trainer Specialist, Can Fit Pro Certified
- Health & Fitness Freelance Writer
- FAME Fitness Model Competitor
The road to achieving optimal health and fitness is not easy. “I’ve been working out since the days of Rachel McLish, Lenda Murray, Susie Currie and Monica Brant. But during my university years, I picked up unhealthy habits… smoking, drinking, sleepless nights and anorexia. We all have our own vices. Eating well and living a healthy lifestyle were not my priorities. But after my father passed away from a sudden heart attack and my uncle from an aggressive cancer, I realized the value of a healthy lifestyle. It’s an everyday struggle but I believe that we all have the responsibility to ourselves and those we love to continually improve how we live and help those that surround us. By contributing to this interdependent relationship… we all gain.
