As a Pastor for nearly 2 decades, I had the opportunity to hone skills of listening, compassion, encouragement and challenge. Eventually it was time for a change. Starting with run coaching a couple athletes and then after a stint in retail sales I started as a Personal Trainer and at North Star Fitness where those skills learned over decades are helping people of all types reach their fitness goals.

I enjoy running and since High School have run track, road races and in the past 12 years almost exclusively trail races, completing distances up to 120 miles. His most notable finishes include Fat Dog 120, Superior 100, Bighorn 100, Canadian Death Race (125k) and Voyageur 50. I am also involved in the Manitoba trail running community, volunteering with local trail organizations and coordinating many trail races as founder and race director of On The Edge Running.

But I’m not just a one-trick pony who runs a lot. For the past 2 years as a Personal Trainer I have continued to grow in my understanding of the human body and how it functions. I love getting my clients to improve on how their bodies work. In addition to getting strong, I believe that moving well and pain-free is important for people at all stages of life. I approach personal training with the philosophy that you are the hero of your own story, and that every hero needs a guide along their journey especially when working through crisis or challenges. I would love to be that guide for you so you can reach your goals, stay active well into your older years and have fun doing so.
