Brantley’s love for fitness began at an early age through hockey and soccer, since then expanding to regularly playing squash, spike ball, and of course strength training. Initially graduating from the University of Alberta in Political Science and Economics, he found the “office job” wasn’t for him – so he went back for his Personal Trainer Diploma from Elevated Learning Academy in 2013 and has been helping hundreds of clients reach their best since then!
In his spare time he loves to spend time with his wife Victoria and their two dogs, Sarge and Mira.
Brantley is passionate about being able to work with people from all different backgrounds and fitness goals. He is driven to create programming that will not only challenge each individual member but keep workouts engaging and fun. At the heart of it, seeing members constantly take the time and effort to put their health first – sometimes for the first time in years – is what drives Brantley to bring his best to the training floor every day. To be part of that is simply amazing!
Brantley believes everyone needs a coach. No matter what kind of growth you are looking for -physical, mental, spiritual- he believes having someone with you every step of the way is essential to your success. Brantley’s job is to give you all the tools for sustainable success: accountability, safe technique, program structure/knowledge, and most importantly – some fun along the way!
Brantley’s favorite exercise is the Single Leg Anterior Reach. Not only does this exercise test balance, segmental control and strength but Brantley likes to use it as an educational tool – he can learn a lot about how you move and it gives insight into how we can make that better!
“When we did my consultation/assessment, one of the concerns I mentioned was not going so far to failure during my workouts with you that I wouldn’t be able to respond to a search call afterwards. Last Friday, I was able to put that to the test when we got called out that evening to search for a missing individual and I am happy to report that you found a good balance for me. I felt well worked over when I left SVPT but had recovered enough by suppertime to spend 2 hours hiking through the bush up and down one of the ravines in the city. Thanks for supporting my needs.”
