“I’m excited to bring 30 Minute Hit to the women of Kingston. I was a dental hygienist for 17 years in North Vancouver, where I discovered 30 Minute Hit in 2012. I was hooked. I don’t like gyms, and I don’t really like to work out, but this was different. This was awesome!” — Karen Fedyk
Fedyk’s story of what brought her to Kingston involves wanting to share what she’s experienced through 30 Minute Hit, and wanting to feel closer to home, she explained.
“Originally from Thunder Bay, I found myself longing for a change from Vancouver and wanting to be closer to friends and family,” Fedyk continued. “I was getting tired of working long hours for someone else in a sedentary job, and started considering opening my own 30 Minute Hit. My sister moved to Kingston in 2012 and every time I came to visit her, I liked Kingston more and more. Fast forward to November 2019 when we opened our doors in the Clock Tower Plaza, and where we are building a wonderful CommunHity of empowered women in a fun, supportive, and non-threatening environment. We look forward to meeting you!”
