About Wendy Hamelin
Hi I’m Wendy- Welcome to my website!!
Who am I ?
I was first introduced to “fitness” when my only older sister “dragged” me to an “aerobics” class in the early 90’s. I wanted to support my sister’s endeavours but I truly didn’t think I would like it. Was I wrong! Turns out I stayed and she didn’t. I loved the classes- the atmosphere, the social support and having the opportunity to move and have fun!
Not long after, I was encouraged by that teacher to take a fitness instructor course. I was hesitant, but thought – why not! Little did I know then that this was to be my lifelong career!
I have not looked back and am truly grateful for the last 27 years to inspire, motivate and get people to start living fit and healthy in the Oromocto/Fredericton area!
I’ve always wanted to change the way people thought about fitness though! Make it fun, educational, diverse and offer a challenging experience!
I later turned to personal training to further inspire people and still love assessing and coaching people individually.
I now also offer – Sivananda Yoga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga , Int. Yoga Warriors Yoga, Restore Yoga and CenterFit Pilates.
I started Fit Camp in 2005 to get people out of their traditional gym routines and to think outside the box! I strive to offer the safest and most effective evidence based programming for all my clients while providing an experience that is fun and educational!
