Andres

From my early years, I’ve been involved in sports and physical activity. Because of this, I was drawn to a career in kinesiology and exercise sciences. With more than 10 years experience in the field, I’m now involved with Fit After 50, a kinesiology and wellness organization specializing in the prevention and management of recurring pain, arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, high blood pressure and any other special physical condition. My main objective is to optimize clients’ health and help them to improve their quality of life.

Trainer Joao Domingues

Joao

I have been training clients professionally since 2001 and treating acupuncture clients since 2003. In addition, I own and operate West Wing Acupuncture, my private practice. I combine a physically demanding training regime, holistically based nutrition advice and emotional and stress reducing techniques using acupuncture to optimize client results and overall well being. As I approach my mid 40s, I have a new respect for the challenges that aging bodies present, so I firmly practice what I preach day in, day out, and year in, year out.

Personal training changed my life. As a Registered Nurse, I knew first-hand the importance of fitness in health and recovery outcomes, and yet I struggled with my own weight and overall health. I was carrying a lot of extra pounds but I would tell myself, “That’s just the way Enston women are.”  In 2011, I finally decided to do something and made the life-changing decision to hire a Personal Trainer.

The results were amazing. I reached a level of fitness I’d never experienced and developed a renewed interest in sports, my social life and pretty much everything. After two short years, I even entered a fitness & bikini model competition. 

As your trainer, I will commit to making you as successful in reaching your goals as my trainer did with me. When you feel confident inside your own body, the sky has no limit to what you can achieve!

With my background in nursing, I am well versed in dealing with a wide variety of situations. I am passionate about helping others, work well with men and women of all ages, and I specialize in boosting self-esteem and confidence. The majority of my clients are women in the from 40 to 70, and I specialize in body transformation. Trust in someone who knows what you’re going through and who has helped many clients achieve amazing health & fitness goals!

I believe fitness should be fun, positive, and above all effective.

As a trainer I aspire to help you reach your fitness goals while continually challenging you to be leaner, fitter, faster or stronger. Up to date with the latest peer reviewed literature, I make sure that every rep, every set and every effort you exert in the gym is a step closer towards your goal(s). I believe my job is not only to coach, but also to teach, so that fitness can become a bigger part of your life.

I’m a former national-level soccer player, elite hockey player and have undertaken some of the most difficult treks in the world. In my experience, exercise and good nutrition is essential to leading a better mental and physical life. Start your fitness journey with me today with a consultation, looking forward to meeting you!
