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. To see Thomas' training style in action, find him on Instagram @Strong.tommyk. “The obstacle in the path becomes the path. Never forget, within every obstacle is an opportunity to improve our condition”

Matt Reeson, Strength and Conditioning Coach, B.HPE, CSCS, NCCP

When it comes to physical literacy, Matt believes that you can always have more “tools in your toolbelt”. No matter your age or skill level, there are ways to improve fundamental movement skills. Matt is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS), a National Coach Certification – Level 2 (NCCP-2), and has a Bachelor’s degree in Physical Literacy from Mount Royal University (2017).

Matt works closely with clients and develops personalized programs, but he believes that teaching is just as important as his coaching. It is Matt’s mission to show people how athletic training can improve their confidence and quality of life. Matt also believes that multisport participation and the concept of “play” is extremely important, even in adult life. He enjoys basketball, football, volleyball, pickleball, squash, hockey, skateboard and cycling, as well as playing school yard games (like tag and grounders) with his nieces.

Jessica Somerville, PTS, FIS, PFS

For as long as I can remember, personal fitness has always been an important part of my life. From gymnastics to competitive baton twirling, running races and chasing after my kids, feeling strong meant feeling my best. I have dedicated these last 18 years to helping people both young and old, advanced and beginner, and those who are simply hungry for change. Our ability to strengthen and train our bodies is a necessary and valuable tool with great potential ready to be unlocked. I specialize in functional strength training with a focus on core stability and building those muscles used in everyday life. I challenge my clients to push themselves and break though those barriers that so many of us hit, raising the bar of our own personal success. As your trainer I am your #1 fan, your biggest supporter and I will always have your back every step of your journey. I am looking forward to working with you!

Logan Harris, BScHK, A. Kin., HMS, CPT

Logan believes it all comes down to movement. With 10 years of experience developing and implementing exercise interventions for people of all ages, abilities, and goals Logan has found that just the right movement is often the solution. As a specialist in human movement, Logan uses dynamic postural assessments to identify dysfunctional movement patterns that may be contributing to acute /chronic pain, predisposing the individual to injury, or leaving performance on the table. With evidence based corrective exercise interventions for the specific types of dysfunction identified, you can be confident that he will find just the right movement solution for your needs and goals. Additionally, under mentorship and collaboration with behavioral experts, Logan has developed a practical resilience coaching model that complements the physical training he delivers. By understanding and fostering the characteristics of resilience you can reinforce your commitment to all your goals. Beyond the practical elements of his profession, Logan’s interest extends to how movement shapes evolution, the psychology of movement, and how exercise develops psychological resilience. In his spare time you’ll find Logan walking, hiking, dancing, or playing soccer. “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” J.R.R Tolkien
