Paul | Co-Founder | CF-L1 Trainer
Ancien kayakiste de sprint, joueur de hockey et powerlifter, le cofondateur Paul a toujours eu un mode de vie actif. Après s'être éloigné du powerlifting lourd en 2019, il a trouvé l'équilibre et la force qu'il recherchait grâce à un entraînement de fitness fonctionnel. En combinant des levées olympiques, de la gymnastique, du cardio et des mouvements qualifiés, il a pu améliorer radicalement sa force, son endurance et sa santé globale. Avec plus de sept ans d'expérience en tant qu'entraîneur de jeunes athlètes au club Cascades et à travers le pays en Colombie-Britannique, Paul trouve du réconfort dans l'éducation des athlètes sur les mouvements et les performances appropriés. S'il n'est pas en train de lancer des poids, vous pouvez trouver Paul en train de jouer au hockey dans la ligue de bière à l'aréna local, de passer du temps avec ses amis sur la rivière ou de planifier son prochain voyage.
Katherine | Co-Founder | CF-L1 Trainer
I was first introduced to functional fitness training in 2018. Growing up I spent all my time in the gym doing a whole lot of bench press and paddling my sprint kayak on the Gatineau river taking strokes towards my goal of becoming a stronger and faster paddler. After a nasty bike crash forced me to hang up my paddle for good, I knew that I needed to find another fitness outlet and that's when my older brother Tommy introduced me to functional fitness training; I fell in love with it right away. The effective and efficient workouts that helped me maintain my strength, skills and cardio as I transitioned from a high performance athlete to a univeristy student. Although I was no longer racing, I couldn't completely step away from paddling so I began coaching the younger generation of paddlers at my local canoe club, giving me great experience in coaching groups and creating effective workouts for athletes. In 2018, I decided to become a certified Crossfit Level 1 Trainer, since then I've been coaching Athletica Outdoor Workouts and creating tailored workout programs for our personal programming clients. If I'm not throwing down with the Chelsea Athletica crew, you can find me studying Marketing & Entrepreneurship at Bishop’s University in Sherbrooke, spending time on the Gatineau river or surfing the waves in Tofino.
