About Personal Trainer in Toronto, Eric Astrauskas
Throughout my life I have been involved in many sports. I was a successful track athlete in high school, placing second in Toronto in 4x100m relay and 400m events. I was also named Most Valuable Player on my high school basketball team. I have always had a keen interest in health and fitness and how the body functions. A career in kinesiology and sport science appeared to be the perfect fit for me.
During my years in the kinesiology program at York University (Toronto), I became very passionate about personal training, methodology of training (particularly Dr. Tudor Bompa's periodization methods), fitness assessment, and nutrition. While studying at York, I became certified as a Fitness Consultant with C.S.E.P. (Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology) and a Personal Trainer Specialist with Can-Fit-Pro.
After graduating in 2006, I founded Personal Trainer in Toronto. Over the years, I have trained and/or counseled hundreds of clients of all abilities, ranging from children to elderly. I constantly expand my knowledge base and skills with continuing education (recently completing courses in: older adult fitness, fitness business, advanced exercise nutrition, advanced exercise anatomy, assessing and treating lower back injuries). I am currently taking a course on flexibility assessment and prescription. In addition to my required professional development, I spend time reading and writing aricles (for fitness magazines, universities, and blogs). I also mentor fitness professionals and ones in the process of becoming certified. I gain a variety of perspectives from networking with many fitness and health professionals (including: fitness trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, physiotherapists, chiropractors, holistic health practitioners, massage therapists, naturopaths, and dieticians). My mission is to set the standard of excellence in the fitness industry.
