Personal Trainer in Toronto is committed to providing top-quality professional services in the fitness industry. I specialize in: fat loss, toning, muscle building, strength development, flexibility training, and sport-specific conditioning. My ultimate goal is to help you reach your health and fitness potential using the most up to date scientific information on exercise and nutrition on body transformation and physical performance. You will learn how to build a lean, strong, and healthy body. Personal training is offered in the comfort and convenience of your house/condo in Toronto (service areas include:Yorkville, Annex, Forest Hill, Midtown, Lawrence Park, Bayview Village, Bridle Path, Rosedale, Church and Wellesley Village, High Park, and Kingsway).
Your workouts can also be arranged at private fitness studios (including: Studio-Fitness located at 652 Queen St. West, Personal Fitness Consulting located at 682 Huron Street, and Legends Fitness located at 1 Irwin Avenue). If there is another location you prefer we can likely book training sessions there.
Customized exercise program design with nutrition counseling is also offered separately for those looking for an effective plan to workout on their own. This includes demonstrations of each exercise so you will be comfortable training on your own. This service is offered to those living in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area.
I also conduct corporate fitness and wellness programs and seminars. Some of the topics/activities include: effective exercise program design, flexibility training (focusing on essential stretches for office employees), cardiovascular training/ bootcamp, healthy eating (for fat loss, muscle building, and energy, etc.), and stress management. These programs and seminars are informative and engaging. The primary goal of the program is to improve health and wellbeing of the team, minimizing absenteeism and boosting productivity. A secondary goal is to help team building and cohesiveness by communicating and working together on a common goal. Employees appreciate a company that invests in their health.
