Philosophy around training? (What makes you different): I guess I’m result oriented. Results by design, not by accident. I take an organized approach to make sure we achieve the desired outcome in the least amount of time.
1. Foundation First: developing the fundamentals of training is key, from proper breathing, scapular movement cues, glute activation, joint ROM, establishing proper lifting techniques and programming movement patterns.
2. Goal Setting – developing a strategic plan and goal will allow for proper direction in the training approach needed to reach your goals.
3. Programming & testing – regularly testing ones baseline will allow us to see progress and avoid potential plateau’s.
4. Developing Skills & Performance: this will be key in proper progressions and pushing the needle forward.
5. Listen to your body – work smart, not harder.

What are you doing to work on your PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT? As business owner, I’m always reading and researching how to solve our current business obstacles. Making a strategic plan is key and then executing on the plan is the discipline needed to help us move forward in our endeavours. Investing into myself has always been a part of my philosophy which yields the highest ROI.
What are you doing to leave a LEGACY? My goal is to make people better than when they first started. I want to inspire people and make a positive impact on their life. I lead by example and hold myself accountable to make an impact on everyone that walks into our facility. There is no feeling more rewarding than a past IF client/member, team mate or colleague telling me I’ve changed their life.
ENGAGEMENT is key in the trainer/ member relationship why? Engagement starts with LISTENING “when you talk you are already repeating what you know, but when you listen you might learn something new.”
Why is working towards EXCELLENCE important to you? It’s fundamental, it’s the only way to attack life.
