Growing up on the Ottawa River, I picked up every sport in, on, and under the water from scuba diving to going to Nationals for sprint canoeing and kayaking. My sports career progressed from a toddler in ballet to varsity rugby athlete, with injury enabling me to appreciate the body’s capabilities. It was seemingly a natural progression to give back to the sporting world that had given me so much by becoming an NCCP coach. I continue to pride myself on being a health advocate with the passion to help my clients find their stride from health to high performance.
Do you move well? Do you move often? As a Kinesiologist and Fascial Stretch Therapist, I continually ask these questions to aid my clients in improving their flexibility, mobility, and movement patterns. Being active is about more than just getting in your 10,000 steps a day to maintain your health; it’s about empowerment, being more functional, feeling strong, and reaching your goals! I enjoy helping people get from point A to B – whether that be losing weight, building muscle, or perfecting their squat. I thrive on teaching clients about how to move their bodies and push them to capabilities they never imagined were possible. Because, if you don’t have your health, what do you have?

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE SHE'S EVER RECEIVED:

FAVOURITE WORKOUT SONG:
"Bring Sally Up" - Moby, great isolated pushup and squat challenge!
FAVOURITE CHEAT MEAL:
Ask anyone, Adriana loves food. However, she does not believe in "cheat meals" for the bad connotation and relationship you begin as soon as you associate any food with cheating. She believes in moderation, and even enjoys a squash of dark chocolate every other day.
