Nelson Sousa - Owner/Head Trainer
Get leaner, faster, stronger and improve your cardiovascular health. As a life long athlete, fire fighter and former military man, I can effectively lead individuals or groups and bring out the best in those I work with. I emphasize a healthy mind, body and spirit and have experience training all ages and stages of fitness. Having gone through my own personal transformation, my passion is sharing that knowledge and experience with others.
In 2007 I was involved in a very serious head on collision that left me with severe, permanent injuries. After weeks in the hospital, months in a wheelchair, and years walking with aides such as walkers and canes - I found my motivation and realized my life wasn’t over yet. I took it upon myself to become educated on my recovery options, what I needed to change regardless of how challenging the journey would be. One of the first steps to be coming physically active again was hiring my own personal trainer who taught me how to build training programs tailored to specific goals, but more importantly - the importance of having a coach for accountability and motivation through the hard times. After a lot of hard work and many ups and downs, I succeeded in dramatically lowering my body fat, improving my muscle mass, endurance, overall fitness and quality of life.

A fitness professional that specializes in one on one training, power lifting and kick boxing.
Although I have always been active and fitness oriented, my real journey started just 6 months after my son Bryce was born. I fought with my weight, which I never had to do before, being in sports and a runner. My first step was joining a gym, second was to find a personal trainer that jived with me, and understood what I was going through. I have the privilege to push myself places I never thought I would go. I was pushed, encouraged, rewarded and with this I made myself a happier person. This allowed me to help my family also achieve the goals they had longed for. I use my passion for fitness to motivate my clients to accomplish their fitness goals and maintain a positive self image. I work with my client to help them achieve and maintain the healthy lifestyles they always knew they could have.
I hold a: Canfit Pro Certified, Eat Clean Revolution CEC, Fasted Cardio CEC, Beyond Smart goals CEC, and CPR certification. I continually enhance my growth and development within my field of expertise for courses to extend my knowledge and I am currently working towards a S.P.A.R.T.A certification
Jesse Castillo - Body Transformation Expert
The three goals in life are to be healthy, happy and helpful. We strive to accomplish each one through life. If you can’t be healthy, you can’t be happy and if you can’t be happy, you can’t be helpful. The three goals in life are to be healthy, happy and helpful. We strive to accomplish each one through life. If you can’t be healthy, you can’t be happy and if you can’t be happy, you can’t be helpful.
Growing up playing competitive soccer and football, at a young age, gave me that athletic mind set to help better my performance. Proper hydration and nutrition became essential for excelling during/after post recovery. Implementing all these areas into your lifestyle is key regardless the goal or sport you play.
Completing my 2.5 year Health, Wellness & Fitness diploma at Mohawk College gave me the education I needed to further my knowledge. Now as a Personal Trainer, I specialize in sport performance, muscle building, weight loss and nutrition. “No Pain, No Gain”.
