Alyssa Farthing

Alyssa Farthing

This Calgary girl moved to Vancouver in 2015 and hasn’t looked back!  This elite ringette player won Westerns while at Calgary with the Dinos, and now coaches youth here in Vancouver for the same sport.  Don’t peg her for a one-sport athlete though, her diverse sports background will be reflected in her workout with you… you will do it all!  Not only did Alyssa take exercise physiology courses but she studied psychology as well.  This balanced study regime made her enjoy the relationship aspect of her workout, as well as the fitness portion.  Look for Alyssa practicing what she preaches on the training floor, from running drills on the Curve (way too hard!) to weightlifting!
