MEET OUR TRAINERS

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.

Dana (she/her) has a Health and Physical Education degree from Mount Royal University, with a major in Physical Literacy. On top of her degree, she is a certified Personal Training Specialist through canfitpro.

Dana has always been excited by sport and physical activity. After 6 years as a competitive cheerleader, she began rock climbing and has been climbing competitively and recreationally since 2015. She also has several years of experience teaching and coaching climbing technique and training principles.

Dana is committed to an “active for life” approach in program planning, focusing on longevity and sustainability, not “looking good fast”.
