As mentioned when I introduced Dan in my blog, I have a second trainer named Tracy Giacomantonio on board. Tracy is a great trainer, great person and will be a super motivator to all new clients. Be sure to ask her about the first time we met, it is a great story! Here she is….
My name is Tracy Giacomantonio (Jack-o-man-tony-o) and I am beyond excited to be a part of the Evolve Fitness team as a personal trainer.
I have a psychology degree that I received from StFX in 2006 and have found it very beneficial in my day to day life, as well as helping others. After graduation I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do so I packed my bag and moved to the Cayman Islands for a few years. While living on the Island, I participated in many bike marathons, duathlons, 5-10k runs and also helped friends and co-workers improve their fitness levels. While getting ready to leave the Island for my big move back to Canada to pursue my Fitness and Health career, a 10yr old child died from obese related illnesses. After hearing this, I realized I wanted to get into a position where I could help people, and educate people so situations like this could be avoided. I moved back to Canada in 2009 and received my personal training certification. I have been living in Ottawa for the past 2 years and started off at Curves, then as a personal trainer at The Athletic Club. I absolutely love what I do and seeing clients reach their goals has not only been rewarding for them, but it’s been incredibly rewarding for me as well. During my training, I realized just how important nutrition is and that a lot of people have a hard time understanding what “healthy eating” actually means, so I have taken my training a step further and I am enrolled at Mount St Vincent University in the Dietetics program so I can become a Registered Dietitian. I eventually want to use my personal training, my dietetics, and my psychology to focus on helping children (and adults) become more aware of fitness and nutrition.
I am currently very active with running and training myself and look forward to sharing all my knowledge and energy with all the new people I meet through training at Evolve Fitness. Exercise can be fun, you will see 🙂
