My Story

train-kids“Hey gorgeous, I’m Trina, thanks for stopping by!  Here is a little peek inside my life. I am the Mom to 3 beautiful children, the Owner and Founder of Fit4Females, a Wife and Sister.  I have always been active but my fitness and health journey took a turn when my Mom suddenly passed at the age of 38. I hit rock bottom and chose health and fitness to process my deep grief. My Mom was an incredible role model but never put herself first.  I have made it my mission to teach women to make themselves a priority so that they can live a happier life.   I was able to get in the best health and shape of my life post pregnancy and have implemented strategies to make myself a priority without feeling guilty and I can teach you how to do the same!

My gift is transforming women’s lives. I am known to be relentless in helping women achieve their best self. I am lucky to be blessed with the ability to do what I love most, inspire!  All of my credentials and the more serious stuff is below.

I would love to connect with you!

I would really love to connect with you on Facebook because that’s where I tend to share a lot.  Confession:  I’m loving Instagram and that’s where I share a peek inside my life and I’m on Twitter too but I’m not so tweet savy.

Ashley Beaulne

Ashley is a mom of two. She grew up in a very athletic family with fitness being a big part of her life. Ashley played a wide variety of sports both recreationally and rep level. Her dad is her fitness role model; he has been working out since he was young, and still does to this day. She hopes to emulate this amazing example for her daughter too.

Ashley joined Fit4Females in the summer of 2014 when her daughter was just 9 weeks old. “Joining F4F was one of the best decisions I have ever made! It helped me as a new mommy to realize the value of taking care of myself, and making time for my workouts.” With Trina’s guidance, she found her love for fitness and was inspired to combine her two worlds: teaching and fitness. She became a CPR certified Fitness Instructor Specialist.

She works full time as a kindergarten teacher, and spends most of her extracurricular time coaching senior teams at her school. Ashley loves being a part of the fitness world, and all of the new learning opportunities that are ahead of her! She too is just beginning her fitness and wellness journey and is so inspired by all of the F4F ladies and their amazing accomplishments and looks forward to honing her fitness teaching craft and learning alongside all the fabulous F4F members.

Whitney is a stay at home mom to two beautiful daughters, Lexi who received her angel wings when she was 7 months old and Teagan her rainbow baby. Her drive and passion for fitness began very early as little girl. Playing competitive soccer and competing in downhill ski racing were among the many sports that filled her time in Sault Ste. Marie where she originally called home. After moving away from home to complete her honours degree in Kinesiology and Physical Activity and later attaining her certification as a Canadian Certified Pedorthist; she worked as a C. Ped. (C) where her passion for helping others flourished. She moved to Hamilton just before marrying her best friend in 2012.

Whitney’s journey with Fit4Females began in July 2015 when she started Stroller Fitness classes with Lexi, which helped to provide a sense of normalcy in a hectic medical driven few months after Lexi’s devastating SMA diagnosis. After Teagan was born, heading back to Fit4Females seemed like the only logical decision. “It has been a place where I have felt safe to share my experiences and to take time to care for myself. As mom’s, we usually put ourselves last on the list; at F4F I am able to work out for myself while sharing some valuable time with my kids. I truly believe sharing fitness with my daughters has helped me develop a strong and special bond with them.

After quitting her job as a Pedorthist shortly after the passing of her daughter, she has been on a mission to live life to honour Lexi. She has started an annual Christmas toy drive to collect toys for children who find themselves at McMaster Children’s Hospital over the Holidays and so far has collected thousands of donated toys, books and clothes. Whitney has also taken an interest in breastfeeding support after having initial troubles feeding both girls, and has taken courses to pursue an interest in lactation consulting.

Most recently Whitney has become a Canfit Pro certified Fitness Instructor Specialist and has been mentored by our incredible Team. Whitney is excited to see where this path will go, and it truly seems like a perfect fit to her physically active past, present and future.
