Hi, my name is Sami Grosse. I’m a health and wellness coach and my mission is to help busy Millennials incorporate healthier habits into their lifestyle to improve their energy, confidence and resilience. I want to help you have the energy and physical ability to do the things you love and spend more time with the people you love.
I’m an insatiably curious serial enthusiast with a passion for health, events, community, adventure, human behaviour, personal development and all things dance related.
I promote incorporating sustainable healthy habits for long-term health. No quick fixes or gimmicky products here.
My goal is to create a business that promotes:
- healthy choices but leaves room to indulge (in moderation)
- a sustainable lifestyle that fits you
- feeling better in your own skin
- building a supportive community
I am a Certified Coach Practitioner through the Certified Coaches Federation and CanFitPro and a certified Online Coaching Specialist with the Fitness Business Institute. I’m working on a BA in Recreation and Leisure Studies with electives in Exercise Science, Biology and Business at Concordia University and recently returned from a semester exchange at Curtin University in Perth, Australia where I studied Public Health Education and Promotion. I also received my DEC in General Social Science with a focus on Psychology from Dawson College.
I was/am a Professional Member of CanFitPro (2015-2018), ZIN (2015) and SYNC (2017). I’m a certified Strong by Zumba and B1 Zumba Instructor. I have a few certifications from the McGill University Health Centre (Emotional Intelligence, Interpersonal Communication, Time Management, Stress Relief, etc.), where I’ve worked in the Emergency Department as an Administrative Officer for 12+ years, as well as, a few from the American Council on Exercise. I am currently working on a Nutrition Coach certification through Precision Nutrition to add to my toolbox.
My experience working in ER is what led me to pursue working on the prevention side of healthcare after witnessing many patients come in with chronic issues that healthier lifestyle habits could have prevented. My own experience with burnout at 23 (you can read more about that here) also highlighted the importance of making health and wellness a priority.
I want to work on the prevention side of healthcare in the hopes of improving people’s quality of life by empowering them to take back control of their health and wellness.
