My name is Vee McKey, I am a fully certified Personal Fitness trainer since 2001. I am certified with the Aerobics & Fitness Association of America (AFAA), International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA), International Academy of Physique Conditioning (IAPC), YogaFit and NESTA Sport Yoga. Plus I am a Vegetarian and Vegan Health Specialist certified with the Vegetarian Health Institute and I am also certified thru IIN - the largest Nutrition school in the world, as an AADP and IAHC certified Health Coach since 2014! Im now also a TBT Equine Skeletal Alignment Specialist as of October 2022!
Im now studying almost full time to be an ANIMAL OSTEOPATH! I hope to graduate summer 2023! Osteopathic practitioners treat and prevent illness through the manipulation and massage of bones, joints, and muscles. Treatment aims to improve health by positively impacting the body’s nervous, circulatory, and lymphatic systems.
I have been working with people to lose weight, build muscle and help heal injuries etc since I started my own gym, Custom Fitness BDA, at the old St Georges Club in 2001! I sold that business when I moved to Ontario in 2007 to pursue my dream of representing Bermuda in Equestrian sport!
While in Ontario, as well as training horses and teaching riding, I started another personal training business, VeeFit which was hugely successful!
My main passion is working with and training horses. I started riding when I was 10 years old and never stopped! I moved to Southern Ontario for 8 years so I could follow my dreams of representing Bermuda in the discipline of Dressage....a sport in which you train your horse to dance with you thru a lot of patience, love, positive communication and eventually being at one with each other harmoniously! I was so happy to be able to represent Bermuda at the 2014 CAC Games in Mexico and the 2015 Pan Am Games in Ontario! I also won several amateur championships while competing in Ontario, in the small tour division which encompasses the Prix St. George test, Intermediate test and the Intermediate Musical Freestyle!
I am now back in Bermuda and my dressage training led me to want to learn how to help my horse "WANT" to dance with me! I have a VERY sensitive young horse which led me to research how to help him be more relaxed and happy and found the Tucker Biokinetic Method. I have also studied advanced Equine anatomy, massage and acupressure methods to help my horses and now yours too! These methods have also taught me ways to help people and dogs feel more comfortable in their bodies!
I am a certified TBT BioKinetic Skeletal Alignment specialist! I help horses to be happy and pain free thru the use of acupressure, massage, biokinetic energy, stretches and exercises to free up their muscles and fascia! When horses are happy and comfortable and trained with love, patience and understanding....the sky's the limit when it comes to training them! This method also works amazingly on dogs too..... stay tuned!
If YOU and / or your horse need help improving your lifestyle, losing weight, building strength or overcoming discomfort or pain... please give me a call or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember....Life is not a dress rehearsal....make it a long, happy and joyful experience!
