Kayleigh Louey Paddock 

 

Kayleigh was born and raised in Brooks Alberta. She has always lived a very active lifestyle and has always been very passionate about fitness. Almost 2 years ago she fell in love with Group Fitness. Being a Mom to 4 boys she struggled to find the time to regularly work out at home but after that very first class she finally felt motivated and excited to work out! There was something very different about going to a class full of other people all there to work hard, push each other and have fun! She says, “Fitness is so important not only for our physical health but our mental health as well and I loved the challenges I faced mentally during class. Our minds are just like any other muscle in our bodies and require constant challenges to grow and strengthen. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to get active, improve strength and endurance or just looking for something to do to try a fitness class. No matter your current fitness level or experience anyone can do it if they put their mind to it!”

 

Kayleigh has currently completed her Certification through AFLCA.  She is so excited to start teaching at RSDA and to help other people on their journey to a happier healthier lifestyle!
