“Fiona’s program adds “the missing ingredient” that takes one- dimensional fitness programs and creates a model of lifestyle modification for clients. This model allows a centre to build a culture of wellness right from client intake through to true behavioural change programs that create real and lasting results. Our whole team thoroughly enjoyed the day, from our front office team right through to our exercise physiologists and were able to implement new skills learned the very next day.” 
Troy Morgan, Director, Willows Health & Lifestyle Centre
