Christine Mckenzie

PERSONAL & GROUP TRAINER

From figure skating, to The All Star Field Hockey Team, girls baseball team, soccer, track and even competing in Skeleton for Alberta, Christine grew up around sport. This love for activity led to opportunities in education to certify as a CanFit Pro Trainer and Medical Exercise Specialist. Driven by her love to travel, she worked as a trainer while exploring the United States and Europe. It was in Europe where Christine discovered her love of medical exercise and becoming a mother that inspired her to teach physical literacy in fun and creative ways to young children. Christine holds a special place for teaching young children about anatomy through fun, educational, skill development fitness games.

Like most people I let life take over and neglected the most important thing…taking care of myself! I had watched lots of people run the Parkland stairs so I decided to give them a shot. There was this spunky lady, Michele Doucette, crushing the stairs – she was extremely easy to talk to, offered up some suggestions on how to make running the stairs more interesting and asked if I would like to come for an assessment to see if she could offer anything more to help me. Michele and the Synapse method have brought me to a new level of fitness and focus. It doesn’t matter if it is a one-on-one session or a group session - the focus is always on quality, functional movement.
