Chief Operations Officer

Barbara Candlish

I have been an athlete my whole life, I am happiest and in my element when moving! Despite having a Kinesiology degree I always felt lost in the gym, not sure what to do and fearful everyone was judging me. Then I found All Day Fit and that completely overhauled my mindset, I became aware of body – eager to learn and understand how I was treating it, I stopped wasting hours on cardio machines and a new found self-confidence was born. I couldn’t imagine going back to those cardio machines now!

Before joining the All Day Fit crew, I bounced around not really sure what I wanted to do but taking advantage of every job opportunity. On my journey, a few things became clear: my love of making lists could be translated into a job, I need things to be organized, logical and easy to use and I’m pretty damn good at pulling off events.

The timing worked well for joining All Day Fit, Cassie needed some operations help and I had a burning desire to create some lists! From here a beautiful relationship was born and we never looked back.

The day-to-day

Systems and processes are my forte. When I’m not in Academy I’m doing company operations so everything runs smoothly and helps keep our crazy coaches in line :). I plan and execute the company events and challenges…event planning is one of my passions! I also send out our monthly and weekly newsletters, manage our All Day Fit Shop (go buy something!) and provide comedic relief during classes and Academy (as least I find it funny)!

Favorite workout move

Overhead press! Had a shoulder injury for so long that I couldn’t do anything overhead, now that I am recovered I love working my shoulders and back.
