Hey! I'm Kandice Leaf. Welcome to the About page.
I'm a Registered Massage Therapist, Personal Trainer living in North Vancouver, BC (Canada). I have always been interested in fitness and wellness, moving and healing the body, and using the experiences of life to move forward and become a better, stronger, fitter person.
As a therapist and trainer, I work with people suffering from pain and injury. The causes may be different but there are a lot of similarities in the recovery process. Stretching and strengthening are key factors in getting back to the things you love to do.
I am an amateur rock climber, having started later in life (post children). My daughter competes at the National level and for the longest time, I was content with spectating. The way these athletes move is amazing! After a lot of nudging by my daughter, my husband and I started our climbing journey. Let me tell you, it has definitely been a journey! The lessons that are learned on the wall can be applied EVERYWHERE in life!
Apart from rock climbing, I train in SKF Kickboxing and Karate. I have my High Brown belt and will be testing soon (hopefully) for my Low Black belt. This sport has taught me to be patient with myself which I believe we all need to learn how to do that.
Apart from work, training, climbing, kickboxing... I am a mother of two awesome kids. They inspire me to work hard and push when I need to. My husband is pretty amazing too!
