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!!!

Amber Sommer

My name is amber. I am very excited to be part of the Southpaw group!

A wee bit about me!

Growing up in a small town, we were an active family. Nightly bike rides after spending all day outside, jumping on the trampoline, playing 500, building forts, skating on the ponds, really anything to stay busy. As a teenager, I started becoming involved in organized sports. I played soccer, baseball, basketball and volleyball.

At 18 years old, I moved to Calgary, at that time, it was just me and my husband. I had talked about starting to get back into sports, but always had an excuse for not doing it. I started to really struggle with my weight, and mobility. I was falling into a deep depression.

Having kids changed me! Changed my mindset! Changed my goals! Changed my outlook on life!

I want my kids too see me as a positive role model. If they ask me to play, I want to be able to. I want to show them the backcountry and just how beautiful the mountains are. I want them to be able to swim with the dolphins, or snorkel in the reefs. I want them to experience different cultures, embrace different cultures, and live in the moments. I need to be healthy physically and mentally for them.

Now that my family is getting older, I also want to be able to show them that if you want something, you have to work hard at it, physically and mentally.

I am far from perfect though, I have battled obesity and I still emotionally eat. I experience depression and negativity. I live a very busy life raising my family, being a business owner, and competing in a multitude of sports. However, I am learning how to cope with life in a healthier way everyday, and while learning, I am also trying to balance my family, work, nutrition, sports and training schedule to make it work with my lifestyle.

If I can motivate just one person a day, to make or a positive change, I feel it has been a successful day!

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.
