behind the scenes
a little more about me
Hello & welcome to my page! I'm Jas Gilroy the woman behind the business.
As a young kid I was always active and played numerous sports but loved swimming the most. In high school I fell in love working out, I loved the feeling of being strong and finding my own version of "fit." From there I decided fitness was the path I wanted to run down. I graduated in 2013 with honors from Fitness & Health Promotion at Fanshawe College. Since college, I've worked as a personal trainer, group fitness instructor, fitness consultant, online fitness coach, fitness appraiser for law enforcement, teaching assistant and professor.
Shortly after graduating college my sister died unexpectedly and I went down a vey dark road. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. It really wasn't until I struggled with mental health myself that I knew the true importance of it. During that time I used food as a coping mechanism and struggled with emotional eating. Because of that I gained weight, despite knowing the answers as a fitness professional, and I still went on every diet and tried every diet pill I could to lose weight. Now with my education and personal experience I help women learn and understand how to stop dieting, lose body fat, and create a balanced lifestyle all while improving their mindset and self care.
