Southpaw Trainers

Well, well, well. I’ve been expecting you!!

Anthony

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.

I started off my passion for training as a group instructor at Southpaw and have now been given the opportunity to focus on personal training. 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 (but still enjoy goodies from time to time 😉) , 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 I work with 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 my photo.

Jordanne Harris

Hi everyone!!! My name is Jordanne Harris and am very blessed to be apart of this fitness family. But first let me share my story with you!

I have a bachelors in Musical Theatrefrom Sheridan College and a diverse background in dance! My training consists of jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop and street jazz. Through dance I was able to develop a strong sense of body awareness. After severely injuring myself I was forced to step away from dance. After quitting dance I fell into a spiral of unhealthy habits both mentally and physically. And something needed to change.

When I first walked through the doors at Southpaw I was significantly overweight and was riddled with anxiety and felt horribly uncomfortable in my skin. I could barely walk up stairs without feeling out of breath, tired and defeated. But since finding my family at Southpaw and going through the training process I found way to train that I love, I’ve readdressed my relationship my food after years of yo-yo dieting and I have never felt better and more in control of my life.

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!!!

Brandy

My name is Brandy and I’m very blessed to be a part of this wonderful team of people here at Southpaw that I call my family.

A bit about myself, I’ve been a makeup artist for over 25 years Certified in Micro-blading and Semi Permanent Cosmetic Tattooing. I am also a Certified Relaxation Massage, Hot Stone, Chakra Balancing Therapist for the last 11 Years.

I have a true passion for motivating, encouraging, and assisting others in ways to improve their Mind, Body and Soul to be more accepting, loving and kind with themselves their scars quarks and all.

My Motto is:

Self-care is not selfish.

You cannot serve from an empty vessel.

Self-care is never a selfish act- it is simply good stewardship of the only gift I have, the gift I was put on earth to offer others.

Anytime we can listen to our TRUE self and give the care it requires, we do it not only for ourselves, but for the many others whose lives we touch.

2 years ago, I stumbled upon Southpaw Boxing Gym. I was in search of a place that would offer me the same motivation, and encouragement and acceptance that I offer to my clients.

It was time for SELF-CARE as much as I assist others in improving themselves.

It was time to put me first.

Immediately it felt like home at Southpaw and the coaches were so welcoming and inspiring.

Everyone in this gym were so supportive of each other though their health and fitness journey.

Everyone really cared about one another, I had never found this type of support at any other gym before.

This was amazing!!

After 6 months of being a member at Southpaw Boxing Gym working my butt off to take care of me, I realized that my fitness journey for wellbeing had influenced me to continue my education and pursue a certification in the fitness industry.

This was the missing piece to my business profile that I was searching for.

I have now been employed at Southpaw for 2 years and I absolutely LOVE IT!

I’m certified as a Fitness Trainer Specialist through Canfitpro.

I hope to further my education in becoming a Personal Trainer and get my Certification in Active Aging.

I look forward to assisting you all in your fitness journey.

We are in this together.

Now let’s getter done!

RJ

Hello, my name is RJ and I am very blessed to be a part of the Southpaw family

I am currently taking an undergrad in business and aiming to specialize in accounting. I have always been an active person, being the hyper active kid in that family I have played and joined many different sports. From soccer, to track and field, to junior high and high school basketball team, bodybuilding, and CrossFit.

Then one day I decided to learn the sweet science I stumbled upon southpaw, and ever since that day I’ve been hooked. The study of fighting, learning about my inner self mentally and physically, to push the body I never thought possible. It’ll forever be a continuous learning, and I don’t want to stop.

I hope one day you’ll be able to experience what I have experienced, a choice you’ll never regret. Be at your best shape and reach your highest potential!

Now let’s put work in.
