My name is Anthony and I am a certified personal trainer through “Elevated Learning Academy.” I first decided to become a personal trainer a few years ago, when I started Muay Thai. I found out every week they do a 5k run, and I remember being so nervous because I wasn’t sure I could do it. With the support of my group I did make it and 6 months later I ran my first marathon. It felt so great to accomplish something that I never thought I would be able to do, and I decided to get into an industry where I could help others feel the same way.
Working for Southpaw has been great because I’m constantly learning more and more about the industry, I’m in, and what my role in it is. I don’t want people to see exercise and nutrition as a punishment but a tool to enjoy every day to the fullest. I’ll admit that when I first got into fitness, I approached it with the wrong mentality. I had to watch a motivational video every day just to get myself into the gym, because I saw it as something I had to do. Now I try to lead a good example by showing that I eat healthy, exercise, push myself, and enjoy every second of it.
The one thing above all that gets results is consistency, so it’s important to me that everyone in my class enjoys their time and takes away something new to improve their skill. Cause who says sweat and smiles can’t happen at the same time?!?!
I can’t wait for you to start your journey at Southpaw and see how you progress. I’ll see you on the floor. If you have any questions or want to see me in action ;p my contact and social media is listed below.
Holla! I’m Bryenna Dougherty and am so lucky to be doing what I love – spreading the health vibe with all of you! Here’s my story:
My mama has struggled with health issues and body dysmorphia her whole life, and conversely my father is a lean, mean, I’m talking farmer-strength muscle machine. I got to experience the best of both worlds, and if I may so humbly borrow from The Matrix, mama is the Oracle and dad the Architect….so I guess I’m Neo and am going to free your mind and bend your body into tip top shape 😉!
As a child, I step-upped and kicked (double time!) with mama to VHS tapes starring Susan Powter (such an inspiration with her shaved head), Billy Banks (the beginning of my martial arts love affair), Tony Little, and even Richard Simmons (now there’s sum energy). By 9 I had my own workout regimen of a 2 mile jog in the country, 50 sit-ups, then stretches – do static stretches after your workout, people! Thru out the years I shared my mom’s up’s and downs as she dealt with a rollercoaster of issues including obesity, depression, lupus, and fibromyalgia. We had a lotta laughs and fun along the way, but I also watched her live a yo-yo of emotions as she found her inner strength, and sometimes forgot it… I greatly appreciate this experience because it inspired a deep empathy within me and a strong desire to help others who struggle with health. My philosophy is that happy, healthy people contribute to a happier and healthier world – join me in this ripple!
I’m ACE-certified and bring the mind-body-spirit connection to sessions. I believe our bodies are uniquely ours and respond to the energy we create with our thoughts, feelings, unconscious beliefs, and of course what we ingest. The body is also amazingly adaptive, especially when incorporating the powers of mind and heart! As the biggest fan of The Matrix, and my cheesy takeaway line that I put to practice in training is…There is no spoon. Yes, you CAN do it!
Now join me on the exercise floor and let the fun (and sweat) begin!
My name is Luke Dias, I am a 22-year-old first generation Portuguese Canadian. I played Division 1 soccer my whole life growing up. My passion for soccer then transformed into my passion for fitness, particularly weightlifting. When I am not at the gym training our awesome clients, I likely have my nose deep in a textbook as I am working towards my bachelor’s degree with a major in Policy Studies at Mount Royal University. Outside of the gym and school you’ll find me under my car cranking on wrenches or nerding out on my computer. I am also a devoted NBA fan and always excited to spark up a conversation about the league or defend my opinion that LeBron James is the GOAT. Thanks for getting to know me a little!
When I first walked through the doors at southpaw I was severely overweight and could barely walk up stairs without feeling our KD. Deaths and tired. But since finding my family at Southpaw and going through the training process I found way to train that I love and I have never felt better. I come from a place of knowing when I train. I know how it feels to be afraid, to feel embarrassed, or like it’s never going to change. I promise you, you can! Now let’s laugh, burn a few calories and have some fun!!
