Terry grew up on the rinks in Northern Ontario and has always had a passion for all things sports. From competitive hockey to football to years at local gyms, he has always been fascinated with fitness.
Around 2007, Terry stumbled across the Crossfit.com website, he remembers trying to wrap his head around their concept and Olympic Lifts, and adapted in his training the simple concept of working out with minimum breaks between sets. As the years went by he never considered that CrossFit had expanded out of the California garage gym scene and it wasn’t until newly acquired friends mentioned that they did CrossFit here in Ottawa that those memories were triggered and he was instantly hooked.
His love for learning, fitness and a good physical and mental challenge has made CrossFit his passion. He had the opportunity to take the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer certification soon after his CrossFit lifestyle started in 2015, and enjoy the gratification of learning new movements and challenging both himself and others to dig a little deeper. He also love the CrossFit community where there is always someone encouraging you to complete one more rep, sharing the excitement when someone learns a new movement or hit a long chased personal record.
His full time profession has allowed him to learn and develop his leadership skills, while his desire to help others succeed with their goals and dreams now has crept outside the corporate world. After some recent difficult life situations for his family, he knew that he needed to follow that calling into the fitness world and use his experiences, training, and passion to help others reach their fitness and mental goals.
Becoming a CrossFit trainer has been an extremely rewarding experience for Terry, and he looks forward to supporting and challenging everyone to reach limits which they never thought were possible.
