My Beautiful Clients
Travis is not your average trainer, he follows a holistic approach which covers nutrition and exercise both to help you achieve your goals. He can work around injuries and still make you achieve your goals. He explains how to perform the exercises in a correct way, exercises to avoid for your existing injuries, and more importantly why certain exercises are more beneficial for you. Also, amazing nutrition advise to top it all up. My goal was to get back into exercise after minor back injury, at the end of my training lower back pain was completely gone because of proper core strengthening and I had dropped 12-20lbs in 7 weeks (19 sessions) by exercising only 3 times a week. Keep in mind his nutrition advise was a major part of weight loss. It was my first time signing up for a personal trainer and he set the bar so high that had to reach back to him for recommendation for a personal trainer when I moved away from Edmonton to Calgary. Even if you have to travel an hour so to go see him, it is well worth it. His passion and dedication for health an fitness of his clients is unmatched by anyone I have seen. Best wishes Travis!

I’m a very private person. Anyone who knows me is really surprised right now that I posted this.I’m just very proud of myself. I bought jeans I haven’t been able to fit in for years (see right picture) I’ve worked very hard the last 8 months. I’m not where I want to be but I’m definitely getting closer. I didn’t do this all on my own. I did the best thing I could possibly do for myself. I hired a personal trainer. I’ve noticed a difference in my body since training with Travis. I have more energy, little muscles I never had before and the shape of my body is changing. I highly recommend him, he’s amazing at what he does. I can’t wait to see what my future holds for me! I’m loving life😘💕

I've been training with Travis for a few months now. One thing in particular that has stood out to me is that he genuinely cares; he is truly invested in helping assist his clients achieve their fitness and lifestyle goals. In addition to having been a personal trainer for many years, his longstanding career as an EMT has certainly benefited him well and enhanced his knowledge of the body, strains, and working with injury. His session exercises are specifically chosen to maximize results but if you need an alternative exercise or one to be modified he has the know-how. Whether you're a serious lifter or out-of-shape beginner, he has the knowledge, experience, and dedication to get you on the right path.
I believe it's because of the above that he has come to build a small community of sorts amongst his clients. When I first started training with Travis, I was introduced to several other female clients and each one was not only inspirational in how far they've come in their fitness journeys, but they had also formed friendships with one another and train together often. Their invitations to train with them outside of my sessions helped to reduce my gym anxiety and support the building of confidence from which Travis helped me to re-establish.
Lastly, Travis practices his own advice, and I think that's one of the best things any professional can do. He believes that fitness and health is a lifestyle, and doesn't end outside of the gym. Diet, sleep, life stresses, and work all contribute to one's overall physical (and mental) health. Travis encourages his clients to make themselves a priority and give their body and mind the self-care that is necessary in order to not only be healthy, but genuinely happy as well. I could not imagine a more wonderful trainer to have started my gym and fitness journey with. To anyone that is considering whether or not you should do this, my advice is to just go for it: you deserve to be the best version of yourself possible and to have a supportive, knowledgeable, and experienced professional alongside you in the process. That professional is Travis 🙂

The process of healing the self, whether physical, emotional, or both, is less daunting with the support of a few trusted people around us. Travis has become one of those people for me. He is intuitive about people and uses this to find creative ways to draw out his clients onto paths towards better health. I am grateful for the small progressions we've made already and I look forward to so much more. I am admittedly not the easiest client to work with, but I am getting into the groove. Some people, like me, are a bit afraid to jump all in. But I think that fear does go away. Travis is a person who conveys hope - nothing could be more important in encouraging people to embrace a healing journey, whatever that might look like. He is one of those rare human beings who genuinely cares about others. He has finessed the balance between being encouraging and challenging; this is not easy (especially with a sensitive type like me!). Working with you, Travis, is a gift. Thank you.

Anyone who knows me, knows I have always been able to lose weight, but I always give up and it comes right back. I made the decisions it was time to do it and lose it for good. I know I needed help and the opportunity to worth with Travis presented itself to me. My husband was going to meet him and I asked if I could join the appointment. Travis was more than willing and happy to have me be there. I started working with Travis on September 15, 2018. It was the best decision I could have made. His passion to help others shines through. He is very knowledgeable in both the nutrition and exercise. He always takes time to answer questions, even when you are not i a session with him. Believe me, I ask him a lot of questions. He has never once ignored them. He encourages you to to do better than you think you can. That is exactly what I need. I owe him so much appreciation and am grateful for everything he has don for me so far. I would recommend, and have recommended, him to annoyance who will listen. I can't wait to see what else he can do for me. We have just gotten started. You rock Travis!!!

Travis has been training me now since May 2018. He has eased me into strength training at my own pace as I requested. I found it intimidating to start on my own, so his support and positive attitude have helped me into this new-to-me lifestyle. I was looking to learn proper form and how to lift properly. I can feel the overall difference in strength in my body. Its a great feeling to have improved my balance and control over my body. My body has more muscle too. I feel an immediate improvement in my mental well being after a single session. He has introduced me to some wonderful people through these sessions who are just like me. Down to earth, happy people who value healthy lifestyles. I cannot praise the benefits of strength training enough and I encourage you, especially if you are a beginner, to reach out to Travis for guidance. Money well spent.
