Over his decade working in fitness, Geoff has operated under every permutation of the industry possible from front desk operations to managing a team of 30+ employees and volunteers. From private studios with 100 members to a YMCA with 7000. From a community not-for-profit to a Fortune 500 oil and gas firm. Along the way he has earned multiple MBAs in ’getting s^%t done’ to add to his fitness credentials which include Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and Functional Movement Specialist (FMS).
Outside of the gym, Geoff has consulted for the Calgary Weight Management Centre since 2012 and served on executive committees including Mount Royal University and the Canadian Obesity Network (CON-YYC). His drive to aid those struggling to add a base level of activity to their busy lives has lead him to expand his coaching to platforms like writing, public speaking and online consulting in order to share his experience with a wider audience.
