personal trainer

Originally from Seattle WA, began her journey in fitness over 8 years ago. At this time she began training Capoeira (a Brazilian martial art) which challenged her body in new ways. This challenge brought her into the gym to develop the strength and stamina needed for Capoeira. As a result of her love of capoeira and the fitness development surrounding it, she enrolled in the Human Kinetics program at the University of British Columbia.

At UBC Lexi specialized in physical education and health promotion, along the way gaining her coaching certificates in soccer, field hockey, gymnastics, badminton and volleyball. Her senior thesis focused on re-conceptualizing the ‘physical’ in the current education system and examining how something like Capoeira could fit into a new vision for physical education. In her fourth year Lexi took a strength and conditioning class in which she examined a boxer and wrote a program that spanned a year. This class developed her love of sports specific training into a desire to go into the training field.

While in University, Lexi continued training and teaching Capoeira. In partnership with the head instructor, she opened and ran an academy which is still operating to this day. Her next big project is to develop a specific training program for Capoeira to aid in injury prevention and conditioning. Lexi performs and travels for Capoeira on a regular basis; it has brought her to places such as Mexico and Brazil as well as all over the continental United States and Canada.

Lexi’s mission statement:
“School, life and peers can steal your creativity. Never let people make you afraid of being wrong. Insights and personal development can only be reached if we are willing to fail, fail extraordinarily and continue to try.”

Education and Training:
2001-present: Member of the group Capoeira Males (mall-aise), graduated to 7th belt.
2001-2003: Cornish College of the Arts, completed two years of theatre school in Seattle, WA.
2009: University of British Columbia, Degree in Human Kinetics with a specialty in Physical Education and Health Promotion
April, 2009: completed Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology Certified Personal Trainer (CSEP-CPT) certificate.

Personal Mission Statement:

"Now's the time don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self worth.
Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself -
no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are - completely;
the good and the bad - and make changes as YOU see fit - not because you think someone else wants you to be different. "
