Josh Downer

Josh Downer

Josh’s passion for fitness and high performance sport began at an early age with martial arts training and later expanding into training and competing in bobsleigh. Driven to learn how to improve his own training and help others Josh graduated from the University of Guelph-Humber receiving a Bachelors of Kinesiology as well as a Diploma in Health and Fitness Promotion. Over the past few years Josh has spent numerous hours continuing to further his understanding of respiration, GAIT (locomotion achieved through movement), and functional anatomy.

Using these tests and an in-depth understanding of human movement, functional anatomy and high performance athletics Josh develops individualized programs to help clients and athletes improve their movement quality, reduce risk of injury and improve their performance.

Beth Kelly

Beth Kelly

Strength and Conditioning Coach

Beth embarked on a career in the fitness and performance space after a childhood in competitive sport and set the intention of helping others reach their goals.  She studied Kinesiology and psychology at the University of Toronto where she began her next chapter as a strength and conditioning coach. While at the University of Toronto she enjoyed helping athletes reach their goals during the off-season and keeping them healthy during the season. It was there that Beth was driven to learn more about the injury rehab process and decided to attend Sutherland-Chan Massage Therapy School. She is excited to start helping members reach their fitness goals and rehab any lingering aches or pains.  

Beth has experience working with athletes of all ages and skill levels. She is excited to learn more about the Mountaineering world and continue to support athletes from all walks of life through personal training sessions and group classes.
