Brenda Adams
Founder & CEO of The Personal Training Collective

Brenda earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology from Simon Fraser University, which means she spent four (okay, maybe six) years studying the human body and how it functions.

She's also a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (a life coach). And finally, she has her master’s degree in adult education.

So her knowledge about the human body, combined with the tools she's acquired as a life coach, and her understanding of how adults learn best, are the reasons why she's the one to do this work.

From the experience side of things, Brenda has been a fitness professional for over 23 years. In that time she has had the opportunity to work for provincial fitness organizations, to chair the National Fitness Leadership Alliance and to run one of the largest fitness centres in Canada.

One of her greatest passions is teaching. Whether it be a fitness theory course or a Personal Training Course. She thrives on taking knowledge and making it easy for people to learn and understand.
