Joanne is a Toronto-based Aerial Circus Instructor, Calisthenics Coach, and Personal Trainer. She completed her Personal Training Certification through CanFitPro (2015), completed the CrossFit Gymnastics Course (2017), as well as her Foundation Level Trapeze Teacher training from the New England Center for Circus Arts.

Training circus arts since 2005, and teaching aerial arts since 2009, she has travelled across Canada, the USA, and Europe coaching athletes, actors and dancers. Currently she coaches aerial circus at Hercinia Arts Collective, and Calisthenics at DeltaTrain Liberty Village.

She firmly believes in hard work, but also that fitness should have an element of fun for it to be sustainable.

Private Lessons and Personal Training are available upon request.
