Janine Walinski-Shillington – Co-Owner, Trainer and CrossFit Coach

Personal Philosophy:
There is a secret to success; happiness, wealth, and longevity. The secret to living a successful life, in my opinion, is being physically active. I believe that everybody, no matter their age, gender, or race needs to train. It is something you cannot speak of, only feel when you experience it. As a trainer it’s my job and my goal to help make you succeed in your goals. It is my job to guide, teach and tell you everything I know to help you achieve things you have never thought you could do! I want to show you the miracles, the body transformations, the success and the happiness that comes from within. Let me share this secret with you.

Jenn Kloberdanz, JM Fitness & Massage – Nutrition Coach & Trainer

Over the last decade, I have made the transition from massage therapist to personal trainer/yoga instructor to nutrition coach.  My passion is helping people feel their best and nutrition is at the foundation of it all.  I work with each individual client to establish a nutrition program that is unique to them and their goals.  There are many factors that come into play when building a sound nutrition program.  I don’t believe in the ‘cookie cutter’ approach.  If you are looking to gain strength in the gym, recover faster after a hard workout or run, lose weight, gain muscle or just feel better overall, I can help you build the right nutrition program to reach your goals.
 
I am certified with Precision Nutrition and an ISSA Specialist in Performance Nutrition. I am currently working on my Functional Diagnostic Nutrition certification.  In the near future, I am excited to be offering healing opportunities for my clients by testing for hormonal imbalances, adrenal dysfunction or other malfunctions of the body.

Michael Sheehan, Michael Sheehan Physical Fitness – Trainer

Michael attended GPRC and graduated in the Fitness Leadership Program.  He is a CSEP Certified Personal Trainer and also holds his Agatsu Level 1 Kettlebell, Powerlifting and TRX certification, and Poliquin BioSignature Coarse .  Michael is continuing his education pursuing a Kineisiology Degree.
Michael has played football for eight years and coached the last three seasons.  He specializes in individual client training and sport specific training for athletes.
 
“My passions lie in a severe competitive nature as well as a continuous drive to grow in every way possible.  I believe an individual should be able to grow intellectually as well as physically through forms of training and to be able to connect the mind with the body on a much deeper level.  I use the gym as a sort of meditation if you will, to put aside all of life’s distractions and focus on each lift, always trying to improve upon them.  I stay fit because it relaxes me and helps me achieve my goals in and outside of the gym.”

Carly Pura, Certified Personal Trainer

I’ve participated in sports since I was the age of five. My junior and senior years of highschool I played basketball, ran track, and competed in cross country. I ran with the Grande Prairie Regional College’s running team, The Wolves, for three years, and one year with Augustana College.
 
Because sports played such a big part of my life I am also passionate about youth health and fitness. I believe that the best way to engage youth in fitness is through education and a positive attitude. I demonstrate this passion through my Crossfit teens and kids classes.
 
I love cooking healthy meals, living a healthy lifestyle, and training. My philosophy on health and fitness is that there are no quick fixes and fitness should be a balance between a challenge and having fun.
