Roxanne has worked in the fitness industry for over a decade. She holds a variety of professional certifications, which include personal training (NASM), Corrective Exercise and rehabilitation movement specialist , Performance enhancement and vegan nutrition. Roxanne has also competed in natural bikini competitions, and trains other females in preparing themselves for their events.
Roxanne says”The Nutrition portion for competition, I refer both my male and female clients to my coach as competition diet and nutrition is a whole other ball game”.
In my opinion, a regular exercise and restorative movement practice is essential to have when life’s most difficult challenges present themselves. It is also key to achieving the greatest level of discipline, determination and success in sport and lifestyle. As a former bikini competitor, I learned the art of discipline and determination to accomplish my goals. As a young woman diagnosed with breast cancer, I applied these same principles to save my life in 2013.
I also credit my success in healing from cancer to a healthy balance of rest, consuming nutrient dense whole foods and a supportive and restorative supplement regimen. My long journey back to recovery required the expertise and direct guidance of my naturopathic doctor.
Going through the physical and emotional challenges of cancer, and then recovery, inspired me to create a program specifically for Breast Cancer Patients who have underwent a double mastectomy and need to regain full range of motion, as well as regaining their strength and confidence.
In my free time, you’ll find my nose in a book (or iPad), learning about the latest medical findings on breast cancer, holistic health and fitness. I also crave adventure and enjoy traveling, healthy cooking, dancing and designing bright colored, sexy workout clothes and sneakers to sport at the gym!
