I began my fitness journey when I thought it would be a good idea to enroll in a fitness competition for the first time. I always used to watch fitness shows when I was growing up, they used to be televised and I’d sit within inches of my TV to watch the fitness stars dance and stunt on stage.

Growing up, I was a singer and dancer for the Young Canadians of the Calgary Stampede, performing for the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth and what an experience that was. I went on to dance and cheer for the Calgary Stampeders Outriders and the Calgary Roughnecks Drill Crew – both professional sports teams in my city.

The life of a dancer has a shelf-life, but I know my purpose in life revolved around movement and performing, so one day when I saw a flyer at my local gym of a girl competing, I thought – lightbulb! Turns out, this girl and I would become great friends through that journey to the stage, and still remain great friends today.

That ignited my fire for bodybuilding and really set the stage for my goals following my time in dance. Like anyone, I prepped for my first show which was a regional show in Calgary. 16 weeks of the most intense diet + exercise and several hundreds if not thousands of dollars later. It was all worth it, though. I won that show as the Overall winner in the Bikini division and completely shocked myself in the process. I went on to compete at the provincial level a few weeks later and won my respective height class.

Nationals followed and there I became a Canadian National Champion, a dream come true. I wasn’t done, though. I was so driven and committed to this sport that I just fell in love with it, so I decided to keep the drive alive and compete at an International show, showcasing some of the best amateur bodybuilders in the World! I felt my best going in and I was laser focused. I ended up winning my class at that show, and tying for the Pro Card that was awarded. I was disappointed at the time, but I know that everything happens for a reason. Shortly after that competition, I was involved in not one, but two motor vehicle accidents within 3 weeks of each other.

I had already committed to another competition a few months from then and had everything sponsored to compete in Columbus, Ohio for one of the biggest amateur shows in the world of bodybuilding, The Arnold. Looking back, I wish I had taken some time to rest and recover before jumping into training again, but I didn’t want to let anyone down, especially those who had invested money and time into me. I ended up going to Columbus and placing 5th in the world.

The whole experience was an absolute dream that I’ll never forget. After that show, I decided to shift gears a bit and focus on one of my other purposes in life, to become a Mother. It wasn’t until going through pregnancy and postpartum with my daughter that I realized how different fitness was for people who have carried a baby. I took that experience as an opportunity to fine tune my passion for fitness and start to learn more about the female body, how it works and what it needs, particularly postpartum when it’s been through such a dramatic change. Thus began my journey to try and educate people and inspire people to want to LOVE fitness and make it a part of their routine that they might not have known they needed.

I knew I loved fitness, but I also knew that not everyone did. I wanted to make other women love their bodies and love wanting to work on their bodies, not for the looks of it – like bodybuilding was, but for the feeling of having a strong and functional body that can carry us through life and motherhood. I felt that education regarding postpartum fitness was lacking and people were not helping themselves by training as they did before they had kids. Since then, I’ve been on a quest to bring short but incredibly effective workouts that you can do in about 20 minutes.

Sometimes more, sometimes less. My workouts are ones that I do, from the comfort of my home yet can be done in a gym, too. Workouts I did not only to help my body, but specifically to help heal my deep inner core from the inside out, something so many of us play a blind eye to but can seriously impact our quality of life over time. I wanted to uplift, inspire and help to motivate people to show up for themselves, not for any other reason than wanting to become the strongest and greatest version of themselves. I wanted to show women that we can take care of ourselves, and by doing so, we can take care of others around us even better.

I wanted to show people that you don’t have to spend hours in the gym like I did to maintain a physique that you love. I wanted to show people how to work SMARTER, not harder. That is where my brand POWER by Petra Inc. was born and is something I’m working on currently. It’s been a long journey to this point, but I’m grateful for all of the lessons along the way. Nothing is ever a failure to me, always a lesson and always helps shape the direction of your path. 

I like to split workouts by muscle groups, time, length, sequence, effectiveness, and areas that people generally look for. I program my workouts to be time efficient for the busy mom but also to make mechanical sense. I like to target all areas of specific muscle groups so you know you’ll get the best burn for your buck. I aim to make workouts challenging and intense, but still achievable with a good effort. I like to make them accessible to everyone, but always like options for added resistance if you’re up for more of a challenge.

Workouts that you can more easily fit in your day so you’re doing something beneficial, because if they’re too long or too energy consuming, people wouldn’t do them. When I coach my clients, I assess their goals and what they’re willing to contribute to those goals and make a game plan to move forward. The fitness portion is usually quite similar; however, the coaching portion is where many people differ and that’s where mindfulness comes in. I like to focus on goals, affirmations and healthy habits to help my clients be successful. I aim to teach them as much as I can so they can sustain those healthy habits over time without needing my guidance or support.

I think something unique to myself is my focus around deep inner core healing and training. I see a lot of people training core and abs with sit ups and crunches, as I used to as well. But over the last several years, my focus has been more around strengthening the transverse abdominis, the main stabilizer for our body, prioritizing that over the very visible rectus abdominis. Something that seems redundant or overlooked as I mentioned, but truly so important for things like low back pain, posture, pelvic floor dysfunction and more. 

Mental health is crucial in my opinion. I have struggled with anxiety and depression in the past and I’m always working on my mental health to try to limit those emotions from my experience. I have done and continue to do a lot of research and studying on mental health and mental well-being and I find for myself, meditation has become a huge pillar of my daily routine.

If I don’t have a chance to fit it in, I can definitely tell. It’s not something that came easily to me, I worked at it for several years before getting good at it. Now, I actually usually prioritize meditation over exercise and even work, because I truly believe a clear mind is an efficient mind. Our mental and emotional state can say so much about us and how we cope with life, and I think it’s such an important area to work on when speaking on life goals.
