Owner / Personal Trainer / Author

I started my fitness career in 1988 when I first moved to Ontario from New Brunswick.  I needed a job and lucky for me a new gym was looking for basic floor staff.  I started right away in their temporary location.

 Fast forward a few years of working the floor and learning everything there was to learn about gym maintenance, I got the bug of learning as much as I could about anatomy and how the body worked.

I worked as a trainer from 1990 to 1996 in a few clubs, then started out on my own.  I haven't looked back. 

I've received multiple certifications and attended numerous workshops and seminars over the years.  You can see all of my certifications here.

Just as an added note... I also draw activity and picture books, calendars and placemats for kids of all ages. Check us out at

We started Custom Fitness in 1996 under contract at a few gyms here in Burlington.  Once big gyms started to change their personal training rules, it was my time to leave and go out on my own. 

I've been training clients in their home, condo and virtually ever since.  We built a private studio in 1999 and increased the way we helped our clientele get to their goals.
