Defy Expectations. This is the mantra for how Shawna approaches her life and work.
 
Shawna spent the early part of her career as a research scientist at the University of Toronto before transitioning to post-secondary teaching after her daughters were born. In 2011, a move to Santiago, Chile allowed her to re-evaluate her passions and priorities. Upon her return to Canada in 2014, Shawna seized the opportunity to turn her life-long commitment to fitness and wellness in to her profession. She joined the Infinite team as a practicum student in September of 2016 and never left.
 
Shawna’s personal athletic journey started with cross-country running in high school and has included stops for over a dozen half-marathons (destination races are her favourite); a full marathon; and triathlons of various distances. In July of 2016 she kicked off a new decade by completing her first Ironman 70.3 triathlon.
 
Shawna brings her unique life experience, science education, and teaching background to all her training sessions. She wants to help you find the courage to set big goals and then coach and support you at every step of the way as you achieve them. With her infectious energy, positive attitude and ”work hard, play hard” mentality, Shawna’s goal is to help you defy your own expectations.

Tamsyn Irwin is a graduate of NAIT’s Personal Fitness Trainer program and is also Certified through the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology as a Certified Personal Trainer.
 
Tamsyn’s fitness career began at an early age. As far back as she can remember, she was involved in athletics where she developed her foundation for an active lifestyle. She worked her way up from intramural sports in school and college to being a national caliber athlete. As well as competing, Tamsyn has also devoted her time to coaching younger teams. Coaching is probably the biggest factor that led Tamsyn to want to become a fitness trainer. Over the years she has been very grateful to have had all her coaches, teachers and role models in her life. She admired what they had to offer. Tamsyn wants to pay forward what she has been so fortunate to learn.
 
Tamsyn’s training philosophy is mind over matter. We all know what we can do, what we don’t know is how much more we are capable of doing. She believes that our minds are stronger than any of our muscles. We need to use our mental strength in order to develop our physical strength. She will give you that push, so that you will leave your comfort zone and see what you can truly do, not only in exercise but also in everyday life. Tamsyn hopes to lead by example in helping others to embrace the world of health and fitness.
