Hello! My name is Isalba, the founder and owner of "Izzy Fitness" I am a certified as Can-Fit-Pro Fitness Instructor, Zumba instructor, Personal Trainer, Cycling instructor, and Groove method facilitator.
My passion for fitness started with my own personal journey. After several years working in management consulting in Latin America, I came to Canada to complete my MBA at U of T. After graduation I was hired as Sr. Manager for a bank and started a new finance career in Canada.
In the fall of 2005, I decided to do some dramatic lifestyle changes, from living with very unhealthy habits to a balanced lifestyle that I love and enjoy now. I went from being an obese sedentary person to a marathoner and avid part-time fitness instructor.
I enjoyed fitness so much that I decided to start a new venture and armed with my business degree and more than 10 years of international business experience I started “Izzy Fitness” a new fun, caring, and welcoming fitness studio in the heritage district of Yorkville.
