For many years, Kayla has been actively involved in competitive sports including volleyball, dragon boat, Krav Maga and Tai Chi Chuan. In 2012, she became a Personal Trainer and Holistic Sports Nutritionist. Over the years, she has helped numerous clients achieve their fitness goals, particularly when it comes to pain-free movement.
After enduring her own injuries, Kayla embarked on a journey to discover different ways to rehabilitate through movement and nutrition. Stretching and mobility training became a high priority in order to prevent injuries and reinforce speedy recovery. In 2016, Kayla became a Fascial Stretch Therapist. Her clients consist of athletes recovering from serious injuries, elderly living with pain, and those of various other fitness and lifestyle backgrounds.
In 2017, Kayla and her husband, Darryl opened their own personal training studio in Toronto, ON. Shepherd Strength serves as a central hub for freelance trainers to grow their own personal training businesses, and together, this community spearheaded by Kayla and Darryl strives to enhance the quality of life through health and fitness.
Today, as an entrepreneur and busy mom of 3 young children, Kayla has discovered her own fun and creative ways to stay active and mobile while raising a family and running her own business.
Magnesium Bis-Glycinate 250 Ultra Gentle
“Painful leg cramps used to be frequent visitors in the middle of the night. However, since starting CanPrev’s magnesium bis-glycinate formulas, I haven’t gotten a single one since. I recommend this to many of my clients to help with muscle relaxation and recovery. My favourite drink mix flavour is the Juicy Blueberry because it makes taking this supplement a treat!”
Collagen Full Spectrum Powder
“Collagen is essential for tissue formation. It provides structure to the connective tissues throughout the entire body – from skin and teeth, to bones, cartilage and tendons. Since using this product, I feel stronger and noticed the side benefits of strong nails and clearer complexion. I find I’m often recommending this product to family, friends and clients.”
