Founder and Conditioning Coach
After training and coaching individuals for seven years, he’s learned that people need a goal—something to drive them, something they love—to get them to push harder, faster, and remain committed. He spent a lot of time in sports conditioning centres training athletes and in regular box gyms training weekend warriors, and what they both had in common was a goal. Whether it was competing in this year’s ultimate tournament or keeping up on the slopes with their kids, they had a goal and they recognized conditioning was an important part. Steven holds certifications with both the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology. He’s a ski patroller with the Canadian Ski Patrol and a medical first responder with St. John’s Ambulance. With Monvida he’s fused the things he loves in life: training, helping people, and adventure sports.
