STRENGTH & FITNESS COACH
CPT, Pn1, Movement/Mobility 1
Kurtis first got interested in fitness during his pursuit of a career in firefighting. He used various Coaches to achieve success in reaching different strength and cardiovascular goals while successfully completing various fitness tests. He was accepted into Fire College, eventually working for the Winnipeg Fire Department.
Recognizing the importance of having a Coach, setting goals, and following a plan, Kurtis worked on completing different fitness related certifications. He began training clients in various public gyms and it was this that led to the idea of creating a private training facility. In 2012 Kurtis left his firefighting career and founded what is now known as Rise Athletics and Wellness.
Away from the gym Kurtis enjoys reading and usually has 2 - 3 books on the go. He values spending as much time as possible with his wife and 2 kids. Kurtis enjoys giving back by volunteering with different organizations and serving on different boards in the region.
