Loree is originally from Winnipeg. Yes, THAT ‘Winterpeg’ where it’s cold and snowy for 9 months of the year! Fall is Loree’s favorite season and happily, the fall foliage of Ottawa and Gatineau is a stunning feast for the eyes and luckily, can be enjoyed for at least 2 to 3 months!
Loree has always been active but really began to focus on solo exercising as a young adult working out to Betamax tapes featuring industry standouts such as Jane Fonda, Kathy Smith, Denise Austin, Cher, Cathe Friedrich and Charlene Prickett! Those were the good old days and each of those fit and fabulous ladies, had the right idea!
Nowadays Loree is still working out, primarily teaching group fitness classes to City of Ottawa rec participants aged 18 to 99. She especially enjoys conducting safe and effective classes for older adults, because as the saying goes ‘move it, or lose it’ is really true! As we age we must continue to move our bodies in order to enhance our quality of life and be well enough to continue our activities of daily living. A sedentary lifestyle can lead to various health conditions and exercise is a proven tool to help us stay healthy and free of disease. Stay in motion with AIM and stay well!
