Yasmine was never good at team sports or traditional athletics… so she joined the circus. Training as an aerialist and acrobat from the age of thirteen, Yas developed a curiosity for movement and discovering the body’s physical capabilities, leading her to earn a degree in kinesiology from Dalhousie University.
While at Dalhousie, in between studying and working as a circus performer and instructor, she worked as a student athletic trainer with the men’s basketball team. This is where she found her passion for Athletic Therapy, combining fitness, high performance athletics, and injury prevention and management. She went on to earn an Advanced Certificate in Athletic Therapy from Mount Royal University and is waiting to write her certification exam.
For the past ten years, Yasmine has worked in several gyms and studios across Canada, doing everything from group fitness instruction, aerials and acrobatics group and private classes, and personal training. Her clients have ranged from teens and adults getting into fitness for the first time, varsity level athletes and professional performers working on skill development and injury prevention, elderly folks looking to maintain their strength and mobility, and so much in between. Yas sees personal training as a means to empower her clients to achieve not just their fitness goals, but goals in all aspects of their life as well.

I have been working with Eddy for almost a year and a half now. He has given me the tools to improve my flexibility strength and overall better health. I would recommend him to anyone looking to improve and get back on the court or what ever sport you wish to play. He knows how to make that happen!
The sessions went great. Eddy made sure that we targetted the areas that I wanted to improve on and made sure to tailer the workouts appropriately. Great trainer and defintely cares for his clients! Would definitely train with Eddy again if promotions came back!
His classes are amazing! They've motivated me to stick to the gym regularly! They're fun, challenging and overall a great time! The guidance from Eddy is great, if you have questions or aren't getting something right he's there to guide you in the right direction. The classes can be pretty intense at times but it definitely pushes you to different levels. As far as personal training he's the best trainer I've ever had. He has taught me so much, the one on one time was very prepared and also very challenging. Eddy pushed me to levels I didn't know I had and continues to do so. I always recommend him to anyone that asks me!
