Thomas Kochanoff B.A., NSCA -CSCS, NSCA- PT

Thomas has been coaching, training and mentoring for over 20 years and is still very much addicted to helping others. His training philosophy is based on the person first and programming second; What someone needs, their goals lead to reverse engineering what exercise modalities might work best for that person or group/team. Thomas believes in a mobility- stability -strength theme to guide how individuals can move better and more affectively in life and in reaching their goals. Thomas uses video assessment, dynamic movement screens, Olympic lifts, body building to body weight circuits as tools that to help individuals reach their goals. Thomas has trained youth, university, Canada games and team Canada athletes in various sports. His main approach working with clients is figuring out the limiting factors to their health and performance goals and working with the client to fill in the gaps. During his downtime, you’ll find Thomas climbing indoors or outdoors, by the ocean or on his stand-up paddle board enjoying the waves. Movement has always been his medicine and it guides how he works with others. “The obstacle in the path becomes the path. Never forget, within every obstacle is an opportunity to improve our condition”
