Is there a particular trainer(s) you would like to work with?


Geoff (he/him) uses strength training as a tool to provide people living in bodies of all sizes, ages, colours, abilities and identities the freedom to engage in the world the way they want to. It has been an important component of his physical and mental health strategy for decades, and he can help you integrate it into yours in the same way.

Since 2009, Geoff has lived without a stomach and most of his left lung after a series of medical events attempted to take his life. In 2014, he battled with the loss of his younger brother to homicide and has supported his wife through multiple miscarriages before their surviving two children were born. The key to his life since then has been to embrace this as a gift; not only to live but to thrive in spite of it.

Geoff has been a fitness professional since 2006 and Exercise Physiologist since 2012. His fitness credentials include Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), Functional Movement Specialist (FMS) & Elite Personal Trainer (ePT). He is certified in Kettlebell, Powerlifting, Olympic Lifting and competes in Strongman.

Ace (they/them) is a CSEP certified personal trainer (in training) who is passionate about all forms of movement. They have years of experience working out in various gyms and have an educational background in kinesiology and personal fitness training. Ace has always loved exercise and has used it as an outlet throughout their lifetime.

Recognizing a lack of queer and trans representation within their local fitness community, they became dedicated to fostering a community built on acceptance, respect, and trust. Understanding both the positive and negative experiences that many folks have had surrounding fitness, Ace wants to help individuals establish a healthier relationship with physical activity. They believe that movement is a way to connect and heal. With this in mind, their aim is to deconstruct how we view “fitness” and re-shape it to focus more on current joys rather than predicted outcomes.

Ace wants to continually advocate the importance of fitness and make it more accessible to all individuals regardless of size, gender, sexuality, age, ethnicity and/or ability. They strive to foster an environment that feels safe to train in, free from pressure and judgment.

KJ (she/her) started out as a client of a personal trainer for a few years and fell in love with the way they helped her achieve her goals and the way they made her feel during and after they were achieved. 

KJ wanted to do that for other people, so headed back to school and received her diploma in the Personal Fitness Training program from Elevated Learning Academy. Graduating with honours in 2018. 

“I know how hard it is to get to your goals when you feel like you’re drowning just waking up in the morning.”

Since then KJ has helped many people overcome injuries, feel better in their bodies and minds and continue to see progress hitting their goals. Adding Functional Fitness Specialist and Postural Correction Coach to her resume. 

As a mama of two, it is KJs passion above all to help other moms struggling with motivation to strengthen their bodies, minds and stay active and healthy, because she was once in that position and knows how hard it is to get to your goals when you feel like you’re drowning just waking up in the morning.

Alisha (she/her) has a Bachelors of Science in Biology and Bachelors of Arts in Psychology with a specialisation in addictions and youth counselling. She is a certified Personal Trainer and Emergency Medical Responder. Alisha received her Pro Strongwomen card in 2021 and currently ranks in the Top 10 Women in Canada in Highland Games.  

Alisha was no stranger to the gym as a powerful, explosive athlete and was never in a smaller body despite trying to fit into the size box of her peers. 

Alisha was always active in sports when she was in school, first as an avid Figure Skater turned Hockey player in High School then took up Rugby in University. She coached Pee Wee Girls hockey and joined the volunteer fire department for 2 years. Alisha also worked as a counsellor at a K-12 school where she developed and ran programming for girls who were struggling with self image. Like with team sports, this made her feel part of a community and being part of something bigger than herself. 

Originally from the East Coast (New Brunswick), Alisha relocated to Alberta about 15 years ago and started to meet like minded people. She was going to a regular gym when she came across Strongman on a whim.  

Alisha did her first competition in 2016 and was immediately hooked. She began competing with amazing women and men of all shapes and sizes and despite being an individual sport it made her part of a community again.  

“I started feeling strong and realized the merit in what my body can do rather than how it looked.” 

Her motivation and drive to be a coach comes from helping people see what their body can do for them – not just what it looks like. Capabilities are often overshadowed by our minds’ ability to tell us we are not good enough but with the right guidance and confidence we can all accomplish many things we never thought possible.
