Having grown up in Vancouver & Whistler, my passion for the outdoors started at an early age. The mountains were my backyard; skiing down them in the winter and hiking back up them in the summer. I am a former rhythmic gymnastics teacher and competed professionally for over 10 years, training 3+ hours a day, 5-6 days a week. That moulded me into the person I am today: disciplined, determined, focused, committed, and not to mention a total goofball. These days I stick to Oly Lifting & strength training and, anyone who knows me knows I love a good high-intensity workout that leaves me both challenged physically and mentally. When I am not training you can find me out paddle-boarding the lake mountain biking, kayaking, travelling, or waking my lil’ pup, Ryder… we always scooping the next adventure!
I’ll be your coach and I’ll be your friend. I’ll walk beside you rather than behind you. I’ll guide you instead of guilting you. I’ll teach you the principles of human performance so that one day you’ll be in full control of your own health. I’ll be open, honest, and put my nose to the grindstone for you; in return, I expect the same from your end.

Courtney Mastine

Having grown up in rural Ontario I spent a lot of my time as a child being physically active and outdoors. As I got older, I directed that energy to sports playing almost anything from soccer to rugby. I played competitive rugby for about 10 years from high school to the Quebec Women’s Premier League, to being Provincially ranked at Algonquin College, and Nationally ranked at the University of Ottawa. We would train five days a week with one game a week, in that time, I developed discipline, structure, determination, and a passion for fitness.

As I transitioned out of competitive sport and into the “real world”, I remained an athlete at heart. These days I can be found farming vegetables, mountain biking, or running marathons through the mountains. Although my sport and fitness goal shave changed over the years the outcome remains the same; to live a healthy physically active life. That is why I want to help my clients achieve whatever their goals may be.

I am Certified as a Personal Trainer, with a specialization in Women’s Fitness including women of all ages, stages of life, and pre/post-natal women. I am also a Certified Nutrition Coach. I believe that working consistently as a team is the key to success, especially when wanting to make a change to improve your life. I’m no tone to sugarcoat things and tell you things will be easy when they are in fact hard. When things get hard you can lean on me for support and guidance because that’s what teammates do. You may be just starting your fitness journey, or you may have already started, no matter what stage you’re in I’m here to help.
