- About Normand Richard -
I grew up in a rural community where physical activity involved making snow forts, chopping firewood, and canoeing. My undergraduate training in health and physical education gave me a good taste of the benefits and applications of physical activity. Following that, I further sharpened my skills in exercise and environmental physiology during my M.Sc., and completed the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP) Certified Exercise Physiologist® certification.
In my free time, I enjoy inventing recipes in the kitchen, reading, as well as doing multiday backpacking trips. Here at the HealthLink BC, I’m a qualified exercise professional and the social media coordinator. Follow us on Twitter and like us on our Facebook page.
