ABOUT THE FOUNDER
MAINTAINING A HEALTHIER SELF!
Welcome! My name is Tiphereth and I am the founder of 360 Mind Body & Muscle Fitness. If you are reading this, you are probably wondering what I am all about. I am a Health Fitness Professional who specializes in the art of movement as a form of medicine. I work with individuals such as yourself to help you improve the health of your body and mind. I’ve been a post-secondary student on and off since 2010/11 to now (that was not my plan it just happened). I have a 2-year diploma from Conestoga College as a Hearing Instrument Specialist, a degree from Western University in the field of Health Sciences and soon also a degree in the field of Kinesiology. I am the oldest of 7 siblings and going to the gym or riding my bike is my go-to when I’m upset, stressed, or feeling overwhelmed with life. It is my addiction. Oh! I was 25 years old when I learned how to ride a bike! I also dislike being in hospitals. This is just a small snap shot about myself, I would end up with a book chapter if I told you everything.
Health and fitness to me means MUCH more than how “Fit” one looks. It is more about how healthy, happy and physically functional one feels and considers themselves to be. Many may have heard that “having all the money in the world doesn’t make you happy”, well it is true unfortunately. You can be the richest person but if you are bed ridden or in the hospital for the best part of your life and unable to enjoy the world around you then what is the point. I know that seems harsh but it was a reality that I came to when I was deciding on whether to have a career as a nurse. This lead me to explore other career options that would involve helping people but without having to be in the hospitals. So that is why I am where I am today. My passion is to help individuals see the joy in being active, whether they are young or older; active or not active; have movement limitations/impairments due to age or inactivity or non of the above. Life is not long enough and we spend more than half of it working and paying bills. It is time to take control of your life by keeping yourself healthy and happy, Quality of Life is a currency that is hard to obtain. I am here to help you go out and grab it!
