Rosie’s academic and practical credentials are the highest that can be attained in the field of personal training. As a certified exercise physiologist, she is qualified to prescribe conditioning exercises for apparently healthy individuals as well as for those with known medical disorders, functional limitations or disabilities associated with musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, metabolic, neuromuscular, and age-related conditions. This not only makes her a rarity in the Caledon area, it makes her a valuable resource for physicians who want peace of mind when they want their patients to engage in a safe exercise program tailored to their specific situation.
Rosie began her career as a fitness specialist at Ryerson University, then spent 20 years heading up the physical activity programs at York University. Most recently, she had the opportunity to do the same at the University of Toronto. She’s taught fitness and wellness certificate programs at the university level and has acquired nearly 20 different professional certifications and specialty certificates including yoga, pilates, pre- and post-natal fitness, aqua fitness, CPR-C and standard first aid.
She is a member of The Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology and the Ontario Society for Health and Fitness. Healthletica Wave is largely the result of her deep understanding of exercise physiology and knowledge of the latest research and development in the field.
