About Kandice

Hey! I'm Kandice Leaf. Welcome to the About page.

I'm a Registered Massage Therapist and 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!
