Trent

Trent grew up on a farm outside of Kinistino and is the youngest of 3 boys.

Trent convocated from the University of Saskatchewan with a BSc in Kinesiology and has gone on to receive a Certified Exercise Physiologist designation with the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology, the standard of excellence for Canadian health and fitness professionals. Trent is also Level 1 certified in Functional Movement Systems, a company with a mission to help move people better and then move often. In addition to this, Trent also regularly engages in a variety of professional development endeavors, with a particular highlight being a Dr. Stuart McGill workshop.

Over the years, Trent has worked as a personal trainer at a natural health clinic, as an Exercise Therapist at a private physiotherapy clinic treating WCB, SGI and private clients, and has owned his own personal training business. He has worked with clients of all ages and abilities for strength training, training for aesthetics, sports specific training, group training and bootcamps, mobility, and rehabilitation. He has a special interest in training hockey players.

Trent enjoys working out, golfing, hockey, fishing, camping, travelling, and reading. He is an avid sports fan and enjoys going to Rider games every year and has had the opportunity to see the Blue Jays play in Toronto. All that’s left, is for him to see a Leafs game and for them to win the Stanley Cup…which should happen very soon. Obviously 😉

Personally, Trent has always had a love for powerlifting and bodybuilding and more recently, has started to enjoy the Olympic Lifts. His favorite lift is the deadlift and is proud to have pulled 515lbs (that’s more than a fully grown male mountain gorilla!) Trent hopes to step on a stage or platform sometime in the future as it is on his bucket list to compete.

Trent lives with his wife in Swift Current and they are overjoyed to have welcomed a baby boy recently. So far, the little one isn’t allowing Daddy much sleep and is, of course, using 47 diapers per day…but they love him anyway 😉
