My own fitness journey is what drove me to take the leap to becoming a Personal Trainer. I was working in the oil field. The long days, stress, and lifestyle started to take its toll on me. My joints were aching, the weight was piling on quickly, and my mental state was in shambles. That’s when I turned to fitness, I hired a trainer to help me hit the ground running and I haven’t stopped. Physical fitness, health, and wellbeing quickly became a passion of mine. Now I put all my experience and my Canfitpro Personal Training Specialist Certification to work helping other people get themselves back too. Whether its working out with me in the gym, having a program to do on your own, or a mixture of both. I tailor all plans to fit your goals, fitness level, schedule, and available equipment so that you can stay motivated and be successful.
I grew up playing various sports (mostly hockey) but was always a chubby kid. I had just accepted that it was genetics or whatever excuse I could think of. My own fitness journey is what got me passionate about fitness and interested in personal training. I started out by simply going to the gym more routinely, then I got my own trainer and in a little over a year I had lost 55 pounds. And it wasn’t just the weight, I was saving money, I felt better, slept better, and just made better life choices. This feeling is what got me addicted, and I wanted to share it with other people. So I went to school for personal training, got my diploma and ACE Certification, and didn’t stop there. I pass my free time by taking additional courses to strengthen my training knowledge. I specialize in weight loss, sports performance, pre/postnatal, and group training. I spend my hockey season training the PAC Saints minor hockey teams, I also train clients out of their home gyms and now I am available to you at Chop Shop Physiques!
