Life & Business Summary

33 years young, father of two beautiful kids, entrepreneur, coach and someone who lives and breathes health & fitness. I became a professional in the fitness industry in 2011 to focus on helping people and making a difference. What started as a simple entry level position as a personal trainer quickly turned into dedication and passion to maximize my human potential and teaching others the same. After working for a large Canadian health club chain for 5 years, I decided to take the next big step, go out on my own and founded my own company in order to improve my current and future clients experience, progression and overall satisfaction. IPG Wellness Services is the culmination of thousands of hours of hard work and a labor of love that proves my favorite catchphrase: “Nothing is given, everything is earned.” My current ambition and direction is to create a full service infrastructure within health & fitness centers of luxury condo / apartment buildings in the city of Ottawa. We are currently located within Les Terrasses Francesca (L├ępine Luxury Apartments) at 1425 Vanier Parkway. Professional services offered include (but are not limited to): group exercise classes such as Classic Yoga, Chair Yoga, Zumba, Aqua Fitness & Full Body Fitness, personal services such as Personal Training & Swimming Lessons and therapeutic services such as Massage & Fascial Stretch Therapy.
