I am a two-time Olympic Canadian boxing representative - partaking in the Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 games - and a professional Canadian bantam weight champion. Over nineteen years of boxing training have led me to participate in one hundred and twenty five bouts as an amateur and thirteen bouts as a professional. I have participated in a number of boxing events including the Commonwealth and Pan American games and have received numerous accolades. Apart from individual boxing, I have been highly involved in supporting emerging boxers and athletes and acting as a mentor and trainer to assist them with achieving their short- terms and long- term objectives. When training other individuals, I use a specialized and unique style with a focus on leveraging physical conditioning without actual person-to-person contact. This involves a variety of training methods including hand pad work, skipping and interval training. I am also affiliated with a number of boxing clubs across Ontario and have built a strong network with a myriad of professional colleagues and supporters.
I am a personal and group training professional with a passion for helping others achieve their overall wellness goals. I am also a guest speaker giving numerous talks at high schools and conferences, most recently with the Sikh Association.
As a Group Trainer I have achieved the following: successfully run the Boxers Against Drugs and Guns Everywhere (BADGE) program which mobilizes children and youth to embrace sport and be involved in community activities; maintained an average of 20-25 person class; developed and implemented a variety of fitness programs with a unique and personalized style that included hand pad work, skipping and interval training; maintained a high satisfaction and attendance level and regularly monitored progress for continuous improvement; and maintain sustainable fitness groups.
As a Personal Trainer, I have achieved the following: supported individuals to reach fitness and health objectives in spurt of physical and emotional challenges; increased individuals’ robustness by evaluating level of fitness and creating a structured program to reach target objectives; developed short-term and long-term fitness goals for individuals to promote health and wellness; monitored individuals progress as a tool to evaluate regimen and to motivate individuals to pursue further fitness goals.
