PRIVATE TRAINING

Following an initial assessment and analysis, we structure an individualized training plan that is 100% specific to YOUR own goals and aspirations.


With all of our clients the INITIAL primary focus is to ensure that they are capable of moving through all 3 PLANES OF MOVEMENT safely and pain free. When we find an asymmetry in these movement patterns, we will focus on understanding

& then addressing these issues.


Therefore allowing the body to continue operating as a whole functional unit, rather than ignoring the warning signs.

PARTNER TRAINING

If staying motivated and accountable is one of the challenge's that you face when taking control of your health and fitness, why not ask a friend/partner or colleague to join you on the journey? 


Training as part of a duo brings a whole other level to your PEAK Fitness training session. Help to motivate and drive your partner forward when the going gets tough! Cheer each-other on when the energy levels drop and limbs start tiring, everybody benefits from having an extra person in their corner! 

The PEAK Fitness team will assess the best approach so as BOTH partners in the session are achieving maximal results and working towards their GOALS!

INJURY REHABILITATION

The PEAK Fitness Team is well versed in the common structural issue's and injuries which tend to hinder our path's to success.


Whether it is an acute sports injury or a re-occurring stress/strain that is preventing you from performing at your best. 


The PEAK Team is here to help identify and address these problems, prioritizing your ability to perform at your optimum.

A large emphasis is placed on postural correction and maintaining symmetrical movements, this ensures that while we complete your rehabilitation journey, we will minimize the development of any asymmetrical patterns, which can cause further prolonged set-backs.

"Maintaining correct posture is the foundation prior to any movement, any deviance in posture will translate down the chain and will have an affect on the desired movement pattern"

- Owner Peak Fitness, Simon Nelson

OUR TEAM

SIMON NELSON

Simon has always had a strong passion and keen interest in all disciplines of sport and movement. Playing at high level of competitive of Rugby, he is no stranger to putting in the hard work and reaping the benefits of these efforts. Growing up at the base of the Wicklow mountains, Ireland, it was only natural for him to be into the outdoors also; running, climbing and adventuring as often as possible.


After completing his Degree in Kinesiology in Ireland {Ba(H) Sports Science}, Simon moved to beautiful Vancouver in 2013. Bringing with him a wealth of knowledge and experience regarding the biomechanics of the human body and how best to manipulate training plans, so as to create the most efficient and functional training system across a variety of sports and activities.


“It’s simple science, the sporting activity and requirements to excel will differ, but the human body operates and responds to training stimuli in the same regard. The fun part is figuring out what specific physiological traits are required for each clients activity, and then we break it down and structure an individualized training plan around these variables.” 

Simon’s training stems from the approach of quality over quantity. Learn to do a movement correctly and then we will move forward, with a solid integral foundation. We all begin from step 1, and together we develop a structured plan to move steadily towards our goals and aspirations.


With an extensive knowledge in biomechanics and rehabilitation, Simon finds great interest in assessing our movements and finding the limiting factor that is preventing you from operating at your optimum level.


“Human beings are capable of fascinating feats, all we need to do is to train smart and train purposefully. Always remembering that each one of us has our own specific needs, goals and limitations.”

CILLIAN THOMPSON

Cillian joined our team in the summer of 2019 after moving over to Vancouver from Ireland. All his life he has had a keen interest in field sports and particularly in soccer which he played to a high level in Dublin. He continues to play casually in Vancouver. 


He qualified from Limerick Institute of Technology with a BSc (H) in Sports Strength and Conditioning and began his coaching career with Wexford FC in the league of Ireland. Cillian also spent time training athletes in rugby, tennis and Gaelic sports working as a strength and conditioning coach. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge around the area of sports specific coaching and in particular developing S&C plans for Team's. 

"A well-developed and intelligent S&C programme is often the major factor which decide's if you win or lose your season" 

The combination of Cillian’s education and his own personal experience on the field and in the gym, has given him an excellent grasp of the workings of the human body and from this it has given him a platform to deliver specific, functional and enjoyable training programs to his clients. 

His extensive knowledge of human anatomy and physiology is a great strength when it comes to identifying and correcting postural faults and muscle imbalances in his clients.


"The human muscular system is like a team of players, it is great to have a star player, however it is the whole team unit working together who win the season.

Train your weakness' to improve your strength's!"
