Eddy believes that human beings were made to move. Unfortunately, in this modern age, we spend countless hours in front of screens, rendering our bodies immobile. Immobility leads to an array of diseases, including diabetes and cardiovascular disease. But we are adaptable and versatile beings. Eddy’s goal is to harness that adaptibility to make to new strides in athletic performance.

As a child Eddy played sports such as cross country, track & field, soccer, baseball, boxing and football. He is now a provincial level boxer, using his skills and experience to improve his own athletes and to prepare them for their own bouts. He studied Exercise Physiology & Lifestyle Management at George Brown College in Toronto, where he received his diploma as well as his CSEP-CPT & CEP designation.

Eddy’s methods apply to everyone. Anyone and everyone looking to better their quality of life.

We live in a world where we are more connected through technology and less connected through humanity.
