About Coach

Growing up I was always active. Baseball was my favourite sport, and I excelled at it, eventually playing in university and college on the York University and George Brown College teams.

While at York, there was a strike, and I decided to turn a negative into a positive by going to the gym to fill my days – I loved it, and have been working out consistently ever since then, trying different things like crossfit, bodybuilding, etc.

Around the same time I went abroad for the first time, and fell in love with the world of food and cooking. I transferred from York to George Brown to become a chef, and went into the Toronto restaurant industry upon graduation.

I also got certified to coach Crossfit around the same time, but that was a side hustle / passion project.

Due to my active lifestyle, I always tried to make healthy food as appealing as possible to people that otherwise had a hard time eating healthy. This expertise led to me becoming the personal chef of a top ten ranked ATP tennis player, and traveling the world with him for several years. I was fortunate that this opened many doors for me, leading to me meeting and cooking for NBA, NHL, and MLB players, including all stars in all three leagues.

Instead of traveling the world following the ATP tennis tour, I now cook for athletes in the Toronto and Muskoka regions and my side hustle is my personal chef business.

As much as I love cooking and food, I started to find I was missing the world of fitness. While I still love Crossfit, I have come to believe there is a difference between seemingly being at peak physical fitness and true full body health for long term performance and quality of life. That’s why once I decided to make fitness my main career I was attracted to joining the 3 Seasons team.
