Dave’s strong passion for helping people reach their health goals is demonstrated by his desire to educate and empower clients to examine their bodies through a new lens.

After graduating Kinesiology at the University of Waterloo, he then pursued becoming a High School Physical Education teacher in Squamish. Personal Training became the next logical avenue as it combines his love for teaching and physical literacy.

Currently on route to becoming a Certified Wim Hof Instructor, Dave approaches health with a multi-disciplinary approach. There is no “one size fits all” principle as everyone has differing needs. Working with Dave will include an individualized program that touches on properly dosed strength training, mobility, movement, mindset, nutrition, lifestyle, and recovery.

Using this model has allowed Dave to win over a 15 year battle with Ankylosing Spondylitis – no more heavy-duty me
