Casey’s Journey
to All Day Fit

Over the past few years, I have undergone an incredibly transformative journey in health and fitness. In the past, I was self-conscious about my body, and I felt intimidated by the gym. I thought running was something I was “supposed” to do (but hated), and didn’t have any real knowledge of nutrition, which led to various types of eating dysfunction. Frustrated and desperate to make some serious changes, I decided I needed to learn more about my body and how it responds to training and food. Empowered by this knowledge, I watched not only my physique but my mentality change in ways I never imagined possible. I discovered a passion for training and a confidence in myself that I had never experienced before. As an All Day Fit trainer, I want to help others embark on a journey to discover a fitter, healthier, more confident version of themselves.

How do you start your day?

I start my day with a cup of coffee and a morning talk show (likely Good Morning America or Live with Kelly and Ryan… I will always have a crush on Ryan Seacrest).

Name your favourite book and why?

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck. I tend to be a perfectionist, and this book helped remind me that it’s OKAY when things (big and small) don’t go as planned. The struggles that we face make the highs in life that much better. What’s important is YOUR perspective, YOUR reality, and how YOU choose to handle the shit that will inevitably happen to you! The author of this book is also hilarious, which makes it a quick and fun read.

Describe a perfect day off.

A perfect day off definitely starts with no alarm, my kitty nudging me awake, and then cooking up a big egg breakfast with my hubby. From there, we might take a walk down Queen St. to get some Jimmy’s coffee, pop in our favorite clothing stores, and stroll through Trinity Bellwoods park. For the rest of the day, as long as I’m in motion and outside in the sun (even better if it’s near a body of water), then I’m a happy camper!

Songs currently on repeat?

Too Good at Goodbyes (Sam Smith’s voice pulls on my heartstrings) and Feels by Calvin Harris.

Top life hacks?

  • WAZE because Toronto traffic makes my head hurt.
  • Rub denim on deodorant stains to get them off black clothes!
  • My foam roller that vibrates. It’s a game changer for my hammies. \
  • Use a Magic Eraser on white shoes to keep them looking good as new!
