Jona has a B.Kin. (kinesiology) from the University of Manitoba and has been a personal trainer since 2016, certified through the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology.
R&D onboarded Jona in April 2021 - a year into Covid-19 - with the singular purpose of helping our health care professionals to better cope with the heightened stressors brought about by the pandemic. In an effort to “walk our talk” and show our appreciation for what the health care professional endures every single day, R&D has extended Jona’s expertise by way of complimentary weekly virtual training sessions.
Jona customizes her virtual personal training sessions to meet each client’s specific physical condition and fitness goals. Training includes exercises to increase mobility and stamina, maximize body mechanics, core strength, balance and posture.
It is so gratifying receiving unsolicited testimonials from appreciative clients expressing the positive changes that Jona and her weekly sessions have brought to their lives in maintaining their emotional and physical wellbeing.
Jona holds Life and Disability Insurance licenses in Manitoba.
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Jona…Jona is highly personable, motivating, and skilled at creating a comfortable environment for her clients. She keeps her programs challenging, but fun and innovative…Every workout with Jona is the best investment in me! I am so grateful to Jona and the R&D team for this client benefit.
