Personal Training

Aside from all this writing, I am also a CFES certified Personal Trainer by trade. If you live in the Kelowna area, I would love the opportunity to assist you in reaching and/or exceeding your personal fitness goals, and maximizing your potential within your field of performance.  I hope to be able to inspire and push you to reach your own training goals – whether they are training for a sport, or any other fitness aims.  As your personal trainer, I provide:

personalized programs tailored to you and your goals (no stock, general programs out of a magazine) — body measurements/physical assessments –nutritional advisement motivation —  the fitness and nutritional knowledge you need in order to accomplish your goals

I competed as competitive hockey player from the age of 5; including playing as a professional for a season in Europe, 4 seasons of college hockey in Saskatchewan for Briercrest College in the ACAC, and a season of junior hockey for the Creston Thundercats of the KIJHL.  I’ve also coached  the Okanagan College Coyotes of the BCIHL for 2 seasons,  the Hockey Canada Skills Academy in School District #23, and Okanagan Hockey School.  Aside from my Personal Training certification, I also have a B.A. in General Studies from Briercrest College, and NCCP Theory I & II certifications.  I also used to, or currently compete recreationally in golf, badminton, snowboarding, wakeboarding, soccer, tennis, basketball, volleyball, and other sports; my training knowledge is not limited to just hockey!

My passion for playing translated into that for training others, stemming from my own training days as a player.  Training in the summers with a friend of mine taught me the dedication and drive that is necessary to make physical improvements.  It also taught me the value of motivation; having someone with you in the gym to push you to lift those extra two reps, challenge you to throw that extra 5 lbs on the bar, and keep you actually coming to the gym is often the difference between improving and not.  Having someone educated in the field of fitness affords you the ability to train smarter, and will undoubtedly get you where you want to go, faster.  Does this sound like something you need?

I am currently training clients out of the following facility:


So whether you want to get in shape for your sport, or just shed some pounds and put on some muscle, experience the difference a certified Personal Trainer can make to your training regimen!  Feel free to get in touch with me by email:  or by phone: 250 826 7489 .

      haha, fair enough. This gym is only named that, I haven’t seen the actual test be performed there yet.

    I would seriously hire you if you were in Edmonton. I’m not scared of you, but I wouldn’t lip you off like my other friends who are personal trainers.
