Styku 3D Body Scan: Performs a 3D Body Scan in seconds using just a simple turntable and 3D camera. In only 35 seconds, the Styku 3D Body Scan extracts millions of measurements with 2mm accuracy and reconstructs your body into 3D visuals.
Bod Pod Scan: Measuring your body composition in the BOD POD is quick, easy and fun! The entire process, from start to finish takes less than five minutes. Based on the same “gold standard” principle as hydrostatic weighing (“dunk tank”), the BOD POD uses air instead of water to provide the most accurate body composition measurements available today. Best of all – no one gets wet!
SVAC personal trainers use technology like this on a daily basis to track client results and progress on a much deeper level. The best part is – all of the technology is in house and integrated into the personal training workout experience at SVAC.

“Running is just you, the work you put in, and the clock. You can’t cheat yourself. If you don’t put in the miles, you can’t go to the starting line thinking you’re going to pull a miracle out of nowhere. You get exactly what you put in.”

Chelsea Von Grat
I am no stranger to physical activity! Involved in sports, such as soccer, volleyball, basketball and ringette for 20+ years, it was only a natural progression that I turn my passion for fitness into a career. Always at the gym training hard and trying to improve my own fitness, I believe that with consistency and dedication, any fitness goal is achievable.
A Personal Trainer can be an asset for those trying to achieve specific weight loss, strengthening and/or toning goals. By developing programs geared towards the individual’s specific lifestyle, the Trainer plays a significant role in the progress of the Client with ongoing motivation and feedback. A Personal Trainer takes the guess work out of exercising alone to achieve desired results.
I am very passionate and energetic about my career as a Personal Trainer and find much joy in being a part of improving the physical fitness of others. Learning new and challenging ways of movement based training motivates me. I find the more we know the more we can achieve.
My training and education allow me to appraise and prescribe fitness programs that are tailored to meet the needs and goals of each individual. As my Personal Training Client you will find that you respond postively with regular attendance, increased motivation and demonstrable gains in your fitness level! Contact me today and find out how I can help you to improve your motivation, consistency and effectiveness.
I can help you better your fitness and reach your goals that you most value. You will get the discipline, the science, the reps, sets, tempo, and more – all of which are powerful tools to improve your body composition, decrease pain, and improve energy and performance. Regardless of your abilities or limitations, my goal is to support you on your journey to being a more well-rounded individual in all aspects of fitness to live a healthier and fuller life.
I am happiest when I am helping others accomplish their goals. I am equally engaged in my client moms getting their post baby bodies reconditioned or cheering on my team Canada triathletes. I excel in creating unique training plans that enable clients to meet their goals, from losing 70lbs, getting ready for walking tours, or representing Canada in their sport!
Let me help you improve your body and your life through the benefits of stott pilates. Stott pilates helps restore the natural curves of the spine, relieve tension and enhances self-confidence. The result: a balanced and aligned body that looks fit, feels revitalized and moves with ease – an important goal for whether you are a rehab patient or an elite athlete.
I believe in practicing what I preach. I know what works because I have tried it. I believe in pushing to the limit and going past it. I am passionate about training and would love to share that feeling with you. Anyone can want to win, a champion trains for it. Start your journey today!
With 30+ years of fitness promotion and numerous certifications I am putting my skills to use to help you achieve your fitness goals. I offer a variety of different program options that can be tailored to your needs such as TRX® Suspension Sessions, Personalized Yoga and Flexibility Sessions and Small Group Personal Training Boot Camps.
After many years of being an athlete, my attention has shifted. I would like to put my experience to work for you. I would like to help you find time in your busy schedule to develop your own fitness. I can help you with that by developing effective and efficient workouts that will challenge you and get you feeling and looking your best.

what People are Saying
“Amazing staff and trainers! The facility is bar none the best I’ve been to. Beautiful! VERY clean, no wait for equipment. My kids absolutely love the Playcare. The staff is so welcoming that my kids always want to come back and in fact encourage me to go to the gym! Highly recommend for any age with or without children. Nice lounge to have coffee and relax too!”
“SVAC is perhaps one of the best athletic clubs in St Albert. From the knowledgeable personal trainers to the helpful and friendly staff when you walk through the doors. It is well equipped and is always looking at new programs and equipment that both motivates and takes you to the next level of your program. And when you want to relax they supply the towels, soap and shampoo and offer a sauna for those cold winter days. They even supply coffee and tea so you can socialize afterwards. If you have young children they will love the play care centre while you work out. I am glad to be a member of SVAC!”
“My wife and I have been members since September and we have had an excellent experience with the club, the staff and the personal trainers. The classes have all been great and the trainers give so much to make you part of their group sessions. With the refresh of the facility (paint, and all new equipment) makes the experience so much more enjoyable.”
