Simone Guishard

Certified Personal Trainer, ACSM
Fitness & Health Promotion, Humber College
Simone started out as a scholarship student in Sociology at the University of Toronto, but soon came to the realization that she was more interested in people individually than she was in them collectively. So she decided to turn her passion for health and fitness into a career and enrolled in Humber College’s Fitness & Health Promotion program, then earned certification as a personal trainer through the American College of Sports Nutrition (ACSM).

Simone’s fitness philosophy is that if you have enough energy to turn off that annoying alarm in the morning and force yourself to get up and get things done, you have enough energy to get fit so you can get even more things done. She believes that people in sedentary jobs who exert themselves infrequently can benefit just as much from functional fitness training as people whose workdays are physically demanding. The combination of bodyweight exercises and weight training in functional fitness routines can help them lose weight, build strength and avoid injury.

Because everyone is different with different abilities, goals and needs, she puts a lot of time, effort and research into her customized exercise prescriptions, incorporating all the elements of fitness that will be relevant to them. Don’t expect an easy workout with Simone. She will push you and work with you to reach your goals. And once you do, your body – and energy level – will thank you for it.

Taylor Wallace

Certified Personal Trainer, ACSM
B.A.Sc in Kinesiolgy
Taylor believes that in order to obtain optimal physical fitness and health status we must implement a concurrent training regimen that combines all elements of physical fitness; cardiovascular, muscular strength/endurance, body composition and flexibility. Each component demands vary between individuals and it is my job to customize each program to meet the specific needs of each client.

According to Taylor, the most functionally efficient exercise relative to everyday life is the squat. As we age, we lose muscle mass, strength, mobility and balance. The squat engages our lower limb and postural muscles, which help us to stand up and remain in an upright position, while simultaneously improving our mobility and balance.
