Sporting History

 

Growing up I was involved in multiple sports from playing AA hockey, football, snowboarding, wakeboarding and surfing. My relatively high involvement with these sports inevitably brought me to the art of strength training and the benefit it could have on my performance. Over my university years, I changed my sporting focus mainly to rock climbing and long-distance running. I am currently heavily involved in the climbing community both as an avid climber and a certified climbing coach. Overall, sport has played a huge role in my life and strength training has given me the edge I need to push my limits no matter my sporting focus.  

 

Education

 

Strength training allowed me to build the physical attributes needed to pursue the sports and activities I enjoy doing. The use of training in my life created a deep fascination with the human body and the science behind optimal performance. I found the more I know the more I wanted to share this knowledge with others and help them in their fitness journeys. Moreover, I wanted to help people fast track their learning in regards to training so that they could bypass the pitfalls that most people fall into when they first start to train. This interest lead me to pursue a bachelor's degree in Physical Literacy at Mount Royal University. My degree helped me gain an even deeper understanding of the science of the human body in regards to biomechanics, sports physiology, injury prevention, coaching, and the history of sport and exercise in general. The degree not only helped fill my fascination for exercise science but gave me the skills to help others reach a state of optimal health and performance. 

 

Training Philosophy

 

  • As a trainer, I believe each and every client’s training program must be individualized to their specific needs and individual differences. Moreover, everyone is at a different spot in their fitness journey and my job is to find the best ways to facilitate them on that journey so that they can meet and exceed their fitness, performance, and overall health and wellness goals. 

 

  • I believe that sharing my knowledge and understanding of exercise science is just as important as creating programs for my clients; Ultimately, I want to foster a sense of understanding and independence within my clients so that they develop exercise habits that they can use throughout their life.

“I started training with Khaos 3 years ago. Kyle took me in with open arms and truly taught me the fundamentals of what it takes to be a high level athlete off the ice. Kyle and the rest of the trainers love what they do, are very well versed in sport science, and take genuine interest in their athletes success. Not only do they train me, they educate me. The atmosphere in the gym is the best I’ve ever been apart of, it’s fun and allows me to enjoy my time training and help guide my development. Khaos has played a big part of my hockey career and will continue to push me each day.”

"I’ve been training at Khaos for over two years and it has made a world of a difference for not only my sport but my confidence. Khaos trainers are always there to push my goals and physical abilities to the next level. The trainers have made an environment that is positive and welcoming, making it feel like I want to be there not have to be. My past and current coaches have made many positive comments about how the Khaos program has made such a big difference in what I bring to the softball field. I’ve improved my speed, agility and strength directly contributing to my top of the team finish in batting the past year. Khaos’ ability to adapt to my schedule and injuries has really set this program apart from others. I believe I would not be where I am today without the continuous support of Khaos trainers and programs."
