Aaron is a Personal Trainer, rugby player, and recreational powerlifter who has been honing his craft in Calgary for just shy of a decade. He first started lifting weights as a teenager in an attempt to become a better volleyball player, and immediately fell in love. Knowing that reading internet posts promoting "squats and oats," wasn't going to cut it if he wanted to be a legitimate fitness professional, Aaron uprooted from his hometown of Dawson Creek, BC in 2009 to enroll in Mount Royal University's Personal Fitness Trainer program.
Cut to present day and Aaron has been working full time as a Personal Trainer for over 8 years. His pursuit for higher education has taken him all over the world, working hands-on with industry leaders such as, the Prague School of Rehabilitation, world record powerlifter Chris Duffin, and renowned back pain expert Dr. Stuart McGill.
Aaron's training philosophy is that everyone should live better through strength. His specialty is making clients incredibly strong and pain-free by focusing on doing the basics well, with purpose and intent. Additionally, he believes that you should never lose focus on what brought you to the gym in the first place, which for most people, is to feel, look, and perform better. This means he will never have you flailing around on a foam roller for 45 minutes, instead sessions will always be geared towards progressing clients towards their maximum potential through proper movement and strength training.
