Neil was born and raised in Grande Prairie, Alberta where he excelled in hockey and baseball. He moved to Edmonton, Alberta in 1999 to pursue his degree from the University of Alberta. Along the way he coached hockey in the Midget AAA and Junior A. ranks before choosing to go down the path of fitness training.
Neil has always had a passion for physical fitness and this is what led him to become a part of the team at PlatoonFX. This is his 10th year working as a trainer, first with his hockey players, then in Vancouver B.C. and now at PlatoonFX here in Calgary. Neil takes a lot of pride in seeing every member reach their fitness goals, whether it be losing weight, gaining muscle, or just improving their overall health. No matter what the goal is, Neil will help a member achieve it.
Personally, Neil is most proud of being a member of the 2002 National Baseball Championship team, the St. Albert Tigers. The Alberta champions defeated New Brunswick in extra innings 7-6 to capture the Senior AAA Canadian Men’s Championship. Neil has since moved on to marathon running and adventure races. He has competed in the 2007,2008, & 2009 Canadian Death Race, a 125 km race, with a 24 hour time limit as well as the Okanogan International Marathon in Kelowna the past 6 years. It is participating in events like these that help Neil show our clients just how far you can push yourself to attain your goals.
