My approach

I don't mind what your goals are. They could be one, or a combination of these:

  • reducing gender dusphoria

  • weight loss/gain

  • muscle building (hypertrophy)

  • functional training and pain management

  • bettering your mental helath

I approach goal setting in a way that looks at your lifestyle through a holistic lens. So the goals set you up for success, not disordered behaviors.

Not sure where to start? A Foundation Session helps us decide what path is best for you!

What's a Foundation Session?

In this session:

  • I will recommend the type of fitness regime that will most effectively help someone like you achieve your specific goals.

  • You will learn some tips on how to fast-track your goals

  • I will answer any questions you have

  • You will have your form checked (if you would like)

This is a 45-60 minute initial consultation where I find out all of the information I need to create the best custom program for you. We talk about any previous injuries/illnesses, your exercise history and relationship with movement, as well as your goals!

The session includes your first custom  workout plan (1 day of exercises)! I am not giving you a copy and paste set of exercises. Clients who buy custom programs are given the same care and individualisation as those who I see on a weekly basis.

  • How is the course delivered?
    The program includes video tutorials, worksheets and easy-to-follow written instructions. There will be live Q&A calls with Dibs for every cohort.
  • Do I need any equipment?
    Nope! Each exercise routine will show a weighted version and a body weight version.
  • Do I need a lot of space to practice?
    Not much. In fact there is a whole video lecture informing you of how to set up a functional workout area in your home! Most exercises just need enough room for you to be standing with your arms raised above your head, or laying down with your legs extended and arms above your head. Some exercises require wall space, or a furniture.
  • What currency is the price listed in?
    Canadian dollars.
  • How are you different from a regular gym trainer?
    I'm a non-binary human who is transgender, fully qualified, and looks at your goals through a holistic lens. Not many trainers out there can use this lived experience of being on (and off) Hormone Replacement Therapy, having and recovering from multiple surgeries, and being a gender expansive athlete. ​ I also DON'T center weight loss as a goal. My clients are encouraged to focus on building helpful habits, and finding ways to incorporate joyful movement into everyday life. ​ This doesn't mean I turn away clients who have aesthetic goals in mind. I help folks reframe their goals from outcomes to habits.
  • How does online training work?
    Online coaching can be done in many different ways. With me, you receive a program with video demonstrations to every warm up, exercise, and stretch. ​ We keep an open line of communication through your google sheet comments and sticky notes. You are also welcome to send videos of your form for exercises you think you need extra support with. ​ As for online personal training sessions, you can read this informative instagram post! ​ Don't have any equipment? Check this out!
  • What types of home fitness equipment do you recommend?
    The most budget friendly: Resistance bands & a door anchor. Level up: Adjustable dumbbell set. Getting serious: Adjustable workout bench. All in: Squat & bench press stands.
  • Do I need a gym membership to see you at (x, y, z)?
    No you don't! I work in gyms where personal training is the main activity. You won't find me at a public/chain gym. My fee covers your admission to anywhere I work. ​ If you want me to see you at a commercial gym that you are a member of, I will likely not be able to arrange that as those businesses have bans on external trainers conducting business on their premises.
  • Do you teach martial arts? Where can I go to a queer friendly boxing gym in Montreal?
    I don't teach martial arts, but I do coach boxing for fitness! I am certified to coach individuals and groups through boxing drills with gloves and focus pads. ​ Queer friendly, martial arts in Montreal can be found with Black Flag Combat Club. You can see their news and upcoming events on their social media pages. Facebook. Instagram.
  • I've had a bad experience with a trainer before, will I be safe under your guidance?
    The mainstream fitness industry is difficult to navigate, full of toxic masculinity, and promotes harmful beauty standards. It's easy to see how gender non conforming people, fat people, disabled people, and people of colour slip through the cracks, or are outright excluded. ​ It's my mission to help empower these groups of people to feel confident taking control of their fitness. ​ It is crucial for me to create inclusive gym spaces that promote positive body image, and self esteem. Working out in a queer friendly gym, with a non-intimidating, non judgemental personal trainer (like me), will change your perspective on fitness!
  • Do I need lots of space to practice?
    Most drills can be done standing, or sitting down in a chair. Some exercises require wall space, or a bed.
  • Is this course only for transgender people?
    Absolutely not! This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to best care for somebody who has gone through a masculinising chest surgery. Carers & medical practitioners are encouraged to join.
  • How is this course delivered?
    The program includes video tutorials, worksheets and easy-to-follow written instructions. There will be live Q&A calls with Dibs for every cohort.
  • What currency are the prices listed in?
    Canadian dollars
  • Do I need any equipment?
    No! There is no special equipment necessary. I will provide a list of suggested materials which are optional.
