Alicia Scheele

(Fitness Instructor)

I was born and raised on a farm just outside of Acme, living an active lifestyle since day one. Growing up I was mainly involved in dance and outdoor soccer. I danced for ten years straight; almost every day of the week. When junior high came around I chose to play indoor soccer full time in Airdrie and Calgary until I graduated.  I then completed my post-secondary education at Red Deer College and am now practicing as a licensed practical nurse.

Throughout my schooling I always ensured that I prioritized physical activity. Whether that be going to the college gym once a day, partaking in fitness classes around the city, or going for runs whenever possible. I did so not only to keep fit but also because it is one of my passions and important to me that I stay mentally and physically healthy.

This past year (2018), after hearing raving reviews about Altitude around the community I decided to participate in some of the strength and metabolic boot camp classes Altitude had to offer. While doing so I discovered how much further I am actually able to take my fitness and my body. I also realized I was at a plateau with what I was doing previously. After a few weeks of strength and resistance training at both Altitude and at home I immediately noticed changes in my energy levels, moods and my body. With that being said I new I had to be a part of that great energy and got in contact with Sarah. After doing so I found out that is was possible for me to further my education and become part of the Altitude team. In a few short months I buckled down and completed my AFLCA courses and exams. I am proud to be able to call myself an AFLCA group exercise leader with the portable equipment designation. I plan to commit to lifelong learning by continuing to further my education in both nursing and fitness training.
