Dmitrii Ivchenko

Certifications:
Master of Arts: Physical Education Smolensk State Academy of Physical Education, Bachelor of Arts: Physical Education Smolensk State Institute of Physical Education, Associate Degree: Applied Physical Education Bryansk College of Physical Education, CanFitPro Personal Trainer Specialist

Describe your Personal Training approach:
I believe strongly that the comprehensive, long-term benefits of good physical fitness, balanced nutrition, stress management and sustainable well-being are for everyone: from the quickly maturing adolescent, to the comfortably retired; from the physically challenged to the aspiring athlete. Regardless of age or ability, the key is consistency.

My many years of education and experience working with highly diverse clients have taught me well that consistency in performance, and its attendant benefits, are only possible with qualified assistance.

A personal trainer, therefore, must be motivational, inspirational, innovative, sympathetic and dedicated; however, most importantly, they must be knowledgeable.

Let’s work together!

Sean Salsberg

Certifications:
International Sports Science Association Certified Personal Trainer, Hockey Trainer - On and Off Ice, CPR/First Aid

Describe your Personal Training approach:
We all know how precious time is in our hectic lifestyles. My approach is "smart/efficient" training while in the gym. I help my clients achieve their fitness goals by creating custom workout programs to suit their individual needs. However, reaching our goals doesn't end in the gym. diet is extremely important and I am a believer in flexible dieting. I help my clients understand proper eating habits through "mathematical eating" (tracking macros). We can all indulge and enjoy the food we love in moderation without hindering our fitness goal and without feeling guilty.

Certifications:
Certified Personal Trainer by The International Sports Science Association (ISSA), (BAASc) Psychology Undergraduate at the University of Guelph-Humber, CPR Certified Level C

Describe your Personal Training approach:
I have been working out for 4+ years shifting from training styles of bodybuilding, strength training, power building, and High Intensity Interval Training. I have also worked with weight loss, fat loss and strength & conditioning. I am extremely flexible to any current fitness level of my clients and any fitness level they’d like to attain. I enjoy motivating and challenging my clients in a fun and educational way. When I’m not at work I train 5-6 times a week, read books, study for school, spend time with people whom are important to me, travel and write poetry. In the future I plan to focus on becoming a life and wellness coach, as helping people reach their goals is my passion and aim in life.

Certifications:
Certified Personal Training Specialist (PTS), Older Adult Training, Chair Fitness (Core, Cardio, Strength & Stretch), Fall Prevention & Balance Training, Cycle One Indoor Group Cycle, BOSU Integrated Balance Training, CPR Level C & AED

Describe your Personal Training approach:
Motivating, challenging, coaching and educating is a package deal when working with me. I customize each program to accommodate my clients’ individual needs to help them reach their fitness goals.

Although I train people of all fitness levels, working with older adults & seniors is my area of specialty. This ranges from a level of very high cognitive and mobility function to Alzheimer’s and limited mobility. The age range varies from 55-99 years young!

The most rewarding part of my job is the working closely with each of my clients during their fitness journey. My main goal is to ensure that my clients are knowledgeable about safe exercise and the proper use of equipment. With this knowledge, my clients feel more confident about exercising on their own, between sessions, and will ultimately see better results, quicker!

NEVER GIVE UP…. KEEP BELIEVING… TOGETHER WE WILL CROSS THE FINISH LINE!
