Certifications/Qualifications

  • Yoga Instructor

In the years I have been teaching yoga I have learned that my favourite part of teaching is drawing people into their own bodies with language and awareness.  It is one way to be present.  It is one way to drown out all the other layers of who we are and just get to the heart of the matter.  There will be playful, experimental moments and there will be those recharging moments that you can call on when you are, as they say, "off the mat".  

Creating a space for exploring, creating and allowing for peace.  That's my plan.

  • Spin Instructor

As a retired elementary teacher, I now fill my days with fun and fitness! An active lifestyle has always been a part of my life starting in my teens with volleyball and field hockey, aerobics and squash in my 20s, triathlons in my 30s and then moving to personal training and cycling/spinning in my 40s and now 50s.  I began spinning about 6 years ago and have been a certified instructor for 1 year.  My spin classes vary from interval to endurance to strength classes.  Classes are always tailored for all abilities. So, whether you are a beginner or an experienced rider you will leave the class knowing you had a good workout that was right for you.

  • Spin Instructor

I have been a spinning instructor since January 2016. I decided to take certification courses because of my enjoyment of spinning classes I had been attending for 8 years. I transitioned from spinning classes to road biking and found that especially in the winter months the spinning classes allowed me the best opportunity to keep in shape for the outdoor biking season. I enjoy the entire spinning program but love to teach strength and endurance classes the most focusing on long, hard climbs!

Stephen Norton

Certifications/Qualifications

  • Certified Fitness Instructor - I.S.S.A.
  • Certified Kettlebell Instructor - Agatsu
  • Certified Level 1 Olympic Lifting Coach

I have always had a keen interest in fitness as well as maintaining a healthy lifestyle. There is no greater feeling than completing a physically intense workout and knowing that you pushed yourself harder than you thought possible. I really wanted to share this passion with others and be able to provide everyone with the environment and opportunity to experience the same extraordinary feeling. I strongly believe that fitness is not a destination, but rather a journey and you need to allow yourself to fully appreciate each experience and celebrate every personal victory. I provide all of my clients with a comfortable and supportive atmosphere that both encourages and drives each one of them to achieve his/her individual fitness goals. In addition to acquiring additional certification, I am also looking to further expand my business by developing several new On-Edge Fitness locations throughout southwestern Ontario.

  • Natural Health and Wellness Coach
  • BURN Program Coordinator
  • Bachelors Degree, University of Guelph (2009)
  • Personal Trainer Specialist, Can-Fit-Pro (2009)
  • TRX Suspension Training Coach - Level 3 (2011)

Before going away to University, I had never set foot in a gym and was actually a little apprehensive about it.  I had always been active throughout my childhood trying my hand at several team sports before falling in love with competitive Synchronized Skating.  For over 10 years, the Bluewater Blades were a part of my family and kept me in great shape growing up.  Fast-forward to my 3rd year at the University of Guelph and a few pant sizes later, I realized something needed to change -- apparently Mom's regular meals and 6am morning practices were actually good for me!  This was when I joined my first gym, hired a Personal Trainer and fell in love with the "high" of fitness.  As a Holistic Wellness Coach, I work with clients whose goals range from fat loss to specific health concerns, rehabilitative training to sports conditioning, and in my BURN Program, meal planning and sustainable lifestyle changes as well.  Anyone who’s worked with me knows I’m a stickler for FORM: I have a specific interest in back and shoulder health and am quite particular about proper training and re-conditioning for these highly vulnerable areas.

The best part of my job is being able to see from day-to-day the change I can make in someone's life; it is so rewarding to go home at night knowing I’ve had a part in someone’s positive transformation both in and outside of the Studio.  

I am so happy to be here at PURE with our On Edge Fitness Team and can't wait to see where this exciting chapter leads us!

Shannon Neuber

  • Pilates Instructor

I have always been interested in fitness from an early age, receiving my black belt in Karate in my teens. I was born with minor scoliosis and have dealt with back pain since childhood. I fell in love with Pilates as it completely solved any back issues I had. Pilates helped me create a new awareness of my posture and become stronger in my abdominal muscles. After realizing how much Pilates had helped me, I was determined to become an instructor to share my new-found knowledge with others and help them improve their posture, increase their core strength and get a good, enjoyable work-out in the process!
