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.

Ernie Stewart

Certified Personal Trainer – CanFit Pro
CrossFit Level 1
CrossFit Level 2
Hockey Alberta Level One Coaching
General Business Administration Diploma – Mount Royal University
NASM-PES (National academy of sports medicine- performance enhancement specialist)

Ernie is not new to the hockey world and has extensive experience in training for the sport. His philosophy stems from an athletic background, as well as through his extremely high value on continuing education. Ernie’s hockey experience comes in the form of competing his whole life, all the way to the Minor Pro level. Ernie believes that a major separation from an average to above average coach is a balanced experience in both the practical, and academic aspects of performance training. Ernie seeks to find out the “why” behind training principles, as well as seeking continuous insight through personal experience. Ernie enjoys traveling to various courses and seminars to further his knowledge in Strength and Conditioning. Ernie believes in an individualized approach to performance training, as no two athletes are the same. Through constant assessment he is able to design effective programs that cater to each individual’s specific needs. By properly assessing an athlete’s movement, there is insight to be gained on how an individualized program will lead to a better athlete on the ice. Ernie has written programs and ran training sessions for various levels of athletes, including NHL, Minor Pro, College, Junior and Minor Hockey players. When Ernie is not studying or coaching, he enjoys his own training in the gym to analyze specific philosophies, and further his practical knowledge.

“Actions of today make who we are tomorrow. Don’t let failures define you, but create lessons to grow from. The idea of perfection will never be attained, but with focus on progress of who we are daily, we stand a greater chance of becoming who we can be proud to be. Life is actions, not words….”

“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.”

Practice makes perfect right? I have come to realize that’s wrong. Practice makes permanent, and as a coach I strive for perfect practice. Creating strong stable positions and efficiency in gymnastics and weightlifting, improving the quality of both of these aspects of fitness. I look to help and improve the body’s ability to move through space. Also to teach and surprise people who are willing to learn the art of gymnastics.

Life has taught me that it’s not about being perfect, it’s about effort, and when you implement that effort into your life…EVERYDAY…that is where the transformation happens-that is how change occurs, whether it is a physical change or a changed mindset.  I believe the “physical” and the “mental” go hand-in-hand because the body will believe what the mind tells it to.  My goal is not only to train my clients to have a strong, healthy body…but to have a strong, healthy mind as well.

Competing in CrossFit the last 5 years while being a mom has brought me to the most uncomfortable physical and mental place I have ever been.  It is hard, but it’s also amazing to look back and see I overcame some major challenges not only in the gym, but my personal life as well.  I trained my mind to be strong, even in the most defeating circumstances!  I love competing in CrossFit and challenging myself.  My daughter is my world and being the best mom I can be is my #1 priority.

When I’m not training, I enjoy being outside with my horses and hiking!  I also play the guitar and have 5 years of vocal training.  Singing is another passion of mine.

I will continue to learn more and better my knowledge in this industry because it is ever-changing and I want to offer the best I can to my clients.

Diploma Personal Training

FMS Level 1

I have a passion for fitness and acquiring knowledge about my field. My definite purpose is to share this knowledge with the public so that they can have success in sport training, weight loss, over coming back pain, pain free movement and so on. I recognize that every body is different. For that reason I never create “cookie cutter” programs. Each client is taken through the assessment process where life style (sleep, nutrition, stress levels etc..), movement mechanics, and aerobic capacity are taken into consideration. From there a fitness plan is made for the individual based on their results so that they can have victory over their goals.

Since a young age, I have been involved in many genres of sport as both a competitor and a coach. As an adult I trained for fitness competitions and still continue to challenge myself in athletics.
At the age of 13, I began coaching gymnastics. Coaching at such a young age enhanced my desire to be a school teacher, thus earning my Bachelor of Education and Physed. I continued onto a new career of passion becoming a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. I have been going strong in the industry for 11 years now.
