Owner / Personal Trainer / TPI Golf Performance Coach / FRC Movement / Specialist / Group Fitness
Voted Personal Trainer of the Year – 2018, 2019, 2020
I grew up playing competitive basketball and football from an early age. Sports and fitness have always been a big part of my life. I didn’t always know I wanted to be a personal trainer and performance coach though. I was a Journeyman Carpenter for over 8 years before I realized I needed more out of life. Something that allowed me to have a bigger impact on the world and be truly passionate about my job.
My passion is to bring the community together and maintain a high level of enthusiasm and encouragement through my personal training, group classes or golf experiences.
I love seeing people step outside their comfort zone, shift their perspective and create opportunities for themselves to succeed in whatever path they are on.
My focus on golf has driven my desire for movement quality and efficiency in everyone that steps in the gym. I want people to think function first. How well are you moving today and what changes do you need to make to perform at your highest level on a daily basis. Making sure they take ownership to create a long term, sustainable change.
I believe in Progress over Perfection. Making small changes each day and living for the pursuit of progression, overcoming something that challenged us and accomplishing what we had set out to do. That’s what it’s all about. Always expand and reach for something more.
Personal Trainer / Group Fitness / Certified Holistic Nutritional Consultant
Voted Edmontons Top 5 Group Fitness Instructor
Growing up around an active family, I have always had a passion for sports and activity. After completing the Personal Fitness Training program at NAIT, I realized fitness was only half of the equation towards a healthy lifestyle.
My favourite part of being a fitness/nutrition coach is watching people step out of their comfort zone and witnessing them achieve something they didn’t see possible. My goal is to provide a safe, comforting environment that allows individuals to push these boundaries. I believe that anyone can take control of their life and make a change at any time or age. I believe that everyone deserves to feel healthy, fit and confident at any point in their life.
Personal Trainer / TPI Golf Performance Coach / Corrective Exercises Specialist
“As a competitive hockey and lacrosse player, gyms and fitness have always been a part of my life. After High school I traveled and took time off to try and figure out what I wanted to do with my life. Of course the year off didn’t bring me any closer to a decision, so I went through the NAIT course list and found the personal training program. I thought it would be worth trying. I absolutely loved it and after graduating from NAIT with a Personal Training Diploma I found a passion for coaching and knew that I wanted to help others find their own passion for fitness and create an amazing relationship with the gym as well!
Golf became a staple in the off seasons of hockey and I quickly got into golf performance n the gym. I found the TPI program in San Diego and wasn’t fully sure as to how this would translate into my own training with my clients. After getting TPI certified in golf fitness I very quickly narrowed my sights and love training golf athletes to hit the ball longer, play golf consistently and pain free most importantly! Turns out it was one of the best choices I could have made for my career as it has now led me to The PROJCT!
My goal for any client in the gym is to make them feel as included and welcome as possible, gyms can be scary and intimidating for most people. I want to be a part of the solution and not the problem! Doing that will in turn create an environment that promotes motivation, adherence and success! Clients can crush their goals, have fun and work hard week in and week out for as long as possible!”

Personal Trainer / Group Fitness
Through my life, I was constantly involved in sports. I always had the love of movement in my blood. I constantly sought physical activity as my outlet and continued to learn about new sports and skills right through to university life. I was also greatly interested in the psychological component of daily life. So, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with an Applied Psychology major, as well as, graduating from NAIT’s Certified Personal Trainer Program, earning my Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology certification. I have actively been in the personal training industry for over 10 years.
As a professional, I can lead you to design and define goals that are specific to YOU. Allowing you to have ownership of your own goals is one of my main focuses. The power of goal setting is essential in both a therapeutic and fitness trainer background. Having adopted this philosophy with my clients, I have witnessed great individual successes in my career to date.
Bachelor of Kinesiology / Personal Trainer / Group Fitness / Currently in School for Physiotherapy
My love for health and fitness began through playing both competitive hockey and football. This led me to gain invaluable training experience as I continued playing football at the varsity level for the University of Alberta where I was exposed to the effects high-level training had on my performance as well as my health.
Here, I began my Bachelor of Kinesiology degree with a major in Sport Performance. This furthered my passion for fitness, while providing me the essential tools needed to translate my learning to others. While completing school I was fortunate enough to work in a Kinesiologist role at a physiotherapy clinic as well.
This combination of sport, school and my work has provided me a broad and in-depth knowledge of exercise principles, while exemplifying the importance fitness has in maintaining or improving any individuals quality of life. My philosophy begins with the idea of being intentional with every movement. In order to strengthen our bodies we must create a foundation of physical literacy that allows us to feel comfortable and healthy both in the gym and in our everyday lives. I believe that this experience is only enhanced by the sense of community created by a place like The Projct and I look forward to the opportunity to contribute to it.
