Kim aka The...
Samantha aka The...Spirit
"Sam" is full of spirit and has an insatiable need for power, speed and adrenaline. This boy mom of 3 can be found spending time outdoors, at the lake she grew up on snowmobiliing and going on adventures. When not there she is easy to spot on the soccer fields or at the hockey arena where she spends much of her time watching her boys play hockey.
Sam's love for Power began many years ago in 2010 when she was invited to join a class as a participant but she didn't stop there! After testing the waters she fell in love with all the MOSSA classes but Power was her calling.
In 2016 the opportunity presented to take the Group Power training at none other than The Movement studio, right here in our hometown.
She is truly inspired and grateful everyday to be a part of such a fun loving, supportive community of movers that push each other in ways we didn't think were possible.
