Nice to meet you!

My name is Maxim. I am a personal trainer who grew up in Russia and moved to Canada at the age of 32. I did Gymnastics as a kid but switched to competitive powerlifting at the age of 17. Five years later, I started bodybuilding as well. At 25, I found myself utterly frustrated with my physique — nothing left from my gymnastics skills, strength, and flexibility. I was like an old tree, tight and immobile, though massive and strong. Naturally, I developed lower back problems due to years of heavy lifting and competitions.

That was when I realized that I would rather be smaller, but able to move and bend freely, like a young tree (or a cat). I turned back to Gymnastics. It was one of the best decisions in my life (another one was adopting a street cat I met on a cold December street in my hometown ten years ago, now she is happy in Canada). 

It is 2021, I am 39, I have gotten my gymnastics skills, strength, stamina, flexibility, mobility, coordination, and balance back. I can do interesting - one might say impressive - things with my body and my lower back problems are gone. I feel confident, strong, agile and look forward to every training session because Gymnastics is fun.   


Most importantly, I have come up with a training approach (some of my students told me a unique one) to help you achieve the same, because if I could do this, so can you. My training system is an adaptation of Gymnastics Strength Training and fits people of any age, experience, and fitness. It is challenging but extremely effective and actually enjoable. 

Looking back at my 15 years of coaching and 30 years in the sports, I can say with confidence: It is what you can do with your body defines how you look and feel. Not the other way around. That is why I  use my gymnastics background to unleash your body’s full potential. I want to give you freedom of movement, the joy of a great look and superb self-esteem coming from physical skills rarely seen amongst others. Honestly, it works. 

Please, don't take my words for it and check a hundred of my five star Google reviews. Many people I have trained all over the world benefit greatly from my training approach. It is your turn now! 

Let Your New Self begin!
