Dan grew up playing every sport he could possibly try. After finding his passion for hockey and lacrosse he stuck with them and played at high levels in both sports. Dan still plays hockey today and has even played in New Zealand and South Korea. An avid golfer, camping and hiking enthusiast, as well as an animal lover, round out a very active lifestyle. He has a cat and 2 dogs which keep him and his long time girlfriend very busy. He could not be where he is today without his wonderful and supportive partner, Cait. She is also a PT and together they have helped each other learn and grow personally and professionally. They enjoyed a 6 month backpacking trip across the world (picture above is in Interlaken, Switzerland) in 2016, and then spent almost 2 years living in New Zealand. (picture below is Mount Cheeseman in New Zealand) They now call Kamloops home and help the community thrive by servicing Personal Training to locals.
The Professional Journey
When Dan was growing up his Dad always said “If you’re going to do something do it right.” He lives by those words and certainly applies it to his career. After graduating Cambrian College with an Advanced Diploma in Fitness Management, Dan strived for more. He sought out high quality teachers who offered world recognized course certificates and qualifications. To date he has 8 separate qualifications and certificates in many different areas of health and fitness. He continues to dedicate himself to mastering the concepts, delivery, and integration of all the different skills he learns.
Dan has been dubbed a problem solver by his clients and is always figuring out ways to work around various injuries and physical limitations. He is very passionate about being a Movement Specialist and takes pride in being different than the status quo. “He has a calm, reserved but concerned, and focused demeanour”- as one of his clients put it. He coaches in a level headed, very professional, and above all, effective way. Through his educational training he has developed a system that allows him to easily identify nutritional deficiencies, muscular imbalances, and mobility restrictions that help direct his programming to be very personalized and highly effective. His solutions come from well over a decade of experience and an always growing thirst for education. Every client is different and Dan knows every client needs a personalized solution.
