I started weight training at the age of 15 and I did my first bodybuilding competing at the age of 16. Since then, I’ve competed in over 10 shows, winning first place multiple times and competing at the national level. I’ve also been published in 4 fitness magazines, 1 of them being Status magazine and 12 of them that were international. I’ve been working in the Fitness Industry for over 10 years and recently got voted 2nd best Personal Trainer in all of Montreal. I’ve worked with hundreds of local individuals in addition to those across the world, through my online coaching system. I’ve also had the opportunity to work with celebrities such as former NFL superstar Larry Johnson.

Share your unique training/coaching methods?
I like to connect with every single client and adapt my workouts according to their fitness level and goals. I always try my best to keep it fun and always effective. I like to switch it up, keep them guessing, and always wanting to come back for more.

Trainer philosophy:
Every single meal, every single workout counts when you are trying to reach your fitness goals. If you are going to invest in me, I do not want you to waste your time and money. My goal is to help my clients, I always want the best for them.

Training Plan:
My training plans are really designed to the level of my client. As a client progresses, I will create a more advanced training plan.

Nutritional Plan:
I help my clients with their nutrition by tracking their macronutrients and it’s based on foods they enjoy eating. They also send me weekly check-ins to be held accountable.

Supplement Plan:
Protein powder and bars. Omega 3, Probiotic, Greens and Multivitamin.

Is weight loss more of a fitness issue or a health issue in your opinion and why?
Weight loss is more of a health issue. I see it with my own clients in how much their health has improved as they lose weight.

If you have 100 tokens in total and you could apply them to the following categories, how many would you apply to each?
Fitness level: 50
Health level: 50
They both work together. If you can stay fit then you’ll live a healthier life.

Do you prefer to take and recommend all-natural (no sugar, no artificial colors/flavors/sweeteners) supplements or supplements with artificial flavors and sweeteners? And Why?
Most supplements are heading towards all-natural which has been very helpful, that is my preferred choice.

What separates Status from other fitness magazines?
I truly enjoy Status magazine over any other. I can connect to the content that they provide. They are real and the athletes they use are very inspiring. The articles are always interesting and keep me engaged. They have been so consistent for so many years. Everything we need to know about health and fitness is all there.

My hard-working clients who have families and find time to work out are the ones who inspire me. I have so much respect for them because I know how challenging that could be.

Your transformation story:
My life story is something that can help others in believing in themselves. It was only 5-6 years ago, I was working minimum wage as a gym secretary and janitor. I build my brand and clientele into something I thought would be impossible. To have overcome Covid and grow my business even more with my online training is my best personal accomplishment to date. I have doubled my clientele and now I train 25-30 clients a day with my 30-minute workouts. I have been very blessed throughout my journey and more great things are to come.
