Mitchell now continues to play hockey as often as he can in various men’s leagues year-round. His love for the game and his passion for helping people reach their goals is what inspires him every day.

Mitchell has a strong belief that the gym can be for anyone, but he also believes we are all unique individuals. Applying the same techniques to each person as a blanket strategy is lazy and instead, he wants to know what makes someone tick. Getting to know someone on a personal level can help him help you. Mitchell believes that we all have another level to reach and he wants to help you reach the best version of yourself.

Through his years, Mitchell has accumulated a well-rounded background getting all types of people results. He has a strong specialty working with athletes former or current, partially to do with his background but mainly with his previous roles in high performance gyms. He is not unfamiliar to working with older population, young kids, the quote on quote “Regular Joe” and everything in between. Mixing his experience with his schooling and courses knowledge, Mitchell has faith he can give you the results you’re looking for!
