Find­ing balance and gain­ing strength with Avi­gail Vic­to­ria

Montreal Times - - Cover - By: Jill Clark / mtl­

Lo­cal per­sonal trainer and fit­ness com­peti­tor, Avi­gail Vic­to­ria Isayevych, is pre­par­ing for her next com­pe­ti­tion. This one will be held in our home­town of Mon­treal in Oc­to­ber. She shares her jour­ney into fit­ness, how she trains for a com­pe­ti­tion, and the im­por­tance of balance to any healthy life­style.

Avi­gail Vic­to­ria switched her fo­cus from graphic de­sign to fit­ness in early 2016. Al­though she still works as a graphic de­signer, her role as a per­sonal trainer is a cur­rent pri­or­ity. “I re­al­ized that I wasn’t mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in peo­ple’s lives. I felt the need for a greater chal­lenged,” she says. Her ath­letic na­ture led her to her first fit­ness com­pe­ti­tion in April 2016. While train­ing to com­pete, she com­pleted her per­sonal train­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion with the YMCA.
