Who is Jean ?
Hey there, how are ya?? My name is Jean. As you might have guessed, yes, I am French-Canadian, and a devoted andtly active sports and movement-medicine professional who is constantly consuming CEU (continuing educational units) to keep my credentials up to date.
Time does fly when you’re constantly learning, and cultivating a practice that I’m proud of! I’m proud to say that I have created the ultimate Personal Fitness Coaching environment in the town of Ancaster, Hamilton, and surrounding areas. I’m even more proud to say that in the past 30 years I’ve been in the fitness industry, I have been helping good people such as yourself, achieve some significant and sustainable results.
Now, you might have heard or read about how other trainers have told you that they’ve had their own issues with being overweight and unhappy. Well, I’m here to tell you that wasn’t my life’s trajectory. I’m not one of those kids or adults who struggled with my weight. In fact, to be honest, I was on the opposite side of being overweight. I was a skinny and scrawny kid/adult right up to the age of 40.
I remained way too lean for my own liking. Of course, at this time, running was my chosen fitness path, “my juice” if you will, and my perception of my leanness didn’t register with me as something negative. (at least not at that time) It was at this time when I turned 40 years old, that my lifting practice began!
I needed a change and a new challenge for my fitness endeavours.
It was in 2007, that I started to consume all things with resistance training!
Olympic lifting courses, Powerlifting courses, and using different perspectives on how to blend the rehabilitation method into the periodization of training.
My programs are geared towards your goals: fat loss, building lean muscle, developing better athleticism, getting stronger, and improving your health and quality of life. And of course, I don’t overlook my client’s strength needs and resilience to overcome their life’s challenges.
And, just so you know, I too understand what it takes to get you the results that you’re looking for. I believe a Fitness and Strength Coach should “pave the way” by example and possess their own evidence from their lifestyle.
Regardless of my hectic schedule, I make it a priority to find the time to train. My training brings me my sanity, balance, and peace of mind. Not to mention all the benefits of being fit and healthy. My wife can definitely tell when I’ve been off my training schedule, my mood and temperament can be a bit “testy” let’s say.
I have been so much happier and content with my health and fitness levels. Going from a bodyweight at 158, skinny arms and all, to a 186 lbs and 12% body fat has made all the difference when it comes to my performances now in any athletic activities I participate in. Nowadays, my exercise-diet includes, powerlifting, Olympic lifting, some bodybuilding applications, and Energy system training for skiing, hard-style kettlebell training, mountain biking and Metabolic Resistance training.
I look forward to helping you pursue your fitness, body transformation, or athletic development goals and support your willingness to change your habits for the better. I would appreciate if you made it to this point, to send me an email to : email@example.com, or click on our “Get Started” link at the top right of this page to book your free consultation.
I look forward to helping you achieve your full potential.
Here is one of my clients who has enjoyed great success in just 2 short years. Judie came to me at age 57, pre-diabetic, and 30 pounds overweight and her body fat was at 31%
Judie worked very hard for a little over a year to achieve a brilliant 30 pound lost and is shown here weighing in at 107 lbs, and achieving a body fat of 20 %. We are very proud of Judie’s accomplishments along with her convicted ownership over her new found health and fitness. She was also referred to me initially because she had a frozen shoulder. As a certified athletic and manual therapist, I knew that Judie’s future as a potential, regular exerciser hinged on my abilities to get her back to a functioning level. With persistence, we successfully got Judie’s frozen shoulder back in 3 months (which can take up to 9 months of rehabilitation). When it came for Judie to decide to participate in our personal training programs, it was a no-brainer. Having already successfully overcome her first hurdle to improving her health and fitness, she was confident that I could help her achieve her body composition goals as well.
And as you can see from her picture, the rest is history. Judie’s results occurred over a reasonable time period (of 13 months) and was a result of practicing good nutrition and exercise habits.
Julianne came to me after giving birth to her first baby boy. Julianne weighed in over 145 lbs, and was at 28 % body fat.
