My name is Aleks and my love for understanding the human body started back in elementary school. Back then, my dream was first to become a doctor and then a psychologist. I believe, I found a happy medium between the two – Holistic Health Coaching. I am very passionate and dedicated to helping my clients throughout their journey to achieving health and fitness.
My journey with health and fitness started in elementary school back in Poland, when it became very clear to me that I loved sports. Ever since then, I was always a part of my school’s sports teams – European Handball being my absolute favourite. After graduating high school, I moved to Canada and decided to join a local gym, desperate to find a substitute for my regular activities. After a few months, it became very clear to me that I had no clue what I was doing at the gym. Coincidentally, Humber College was hosting an open house event for their Fitness and Health Promotion program. After attending the event, I was very fascinated with the learning opportunities and career options that it would open for me. A year and a half later, I graduated with honours and applied for a job as a Personal Trainer at GoodLife Fitness. During my three years there, I had an opportunity to grow to become a level 4 trainer, work with amazing mentors and continue my education by taking courses and attending conferences. I have completed multiple certifications, including: Fascial Stretch Therapy Level 1 and 2, Adaptive Bodywork, Low Back Fundamentals with DTS Fitness Education, and joined the CHEK Academy to study Holistic Exercise and Lifestyle Coaching. Most importantly, working at the gym gave me an opportunity to meet many amazing friends and clients who helped me grow as a person. In 2018, I have decided that I was ready to make a big move and start my own practice. My dream was to integrate my Personal Training and FST experience with the holistic approach that I was introduced to through the CHEK Institute. That is how Coach Aleks came to life. For over two years, I was a part of the amazing team at the Optimum Training Centre, working with private clients and focusing on becoming the best version of myself. As of October 2020, I am a proud co-owner of a small wellness studio where I get to work with some of my best friends and provide clients with a beautiful space that allows them to regain control over their health. In my spare time, I love to travel, bike, continue my personal growth and discover nature. My goal is to share my education, wide range of personal experience and love to empower clients from different walks of life to become happier, healthier and stronger.
