My fitness journey began with soccer, as a youth with Toronto FC’s U18’s, and I played professionally in Sweden. Once being introduced to CrossFit I instantly fell in deep with it’s competitiveness, the oneness of the community and I quickly began to learn skills and traits about myself that were unimaginable. That same year I attained my Level One and continued my education through specialty courses and overall coaching/training experience. I am now a level two coach with over 5 years of experience. To me the most rewarding thing about coaching is the trust gained from athletes. I also find fulfillment in challenging myself to create a fun and efficient environment.
Hi! I’m Dr. Elke, a chiropractor here for those looking to optimize their health – those who want to tap into their body’s potential to heal better, perform better, and function better. When there is less stress on the nervous system our bodies can put energy into what really matters – your optimal health and to you living the way you want to be living. I’ve been practicing for nearly four years now and love being part of the CrossFit Cambria team. I really enjoy working with everyone, from athletes to pregnant women and children. When I’m not practicing, you’ll find me doing something outdoors, hanging out with my baby and husband, being active, or just chillin’ with a green smoothie. www.drelke.com
CrossFit has the incredible ability to test you both physically and mentally in order to prepare you for whatever life throws at you. It builds resilience, an unconquerable mindset that makes the unachievable become achievable. That is truly remarkable and what makes CrossFit so unique from other fitness programs. As a Coach, my purpose is to inspire you to push your limits to find out what you are truly made of. I believe that we only get back what we put in and that dedication does not have an off-season. I am thankful that I get to have my own ripple effect in the lives of others as I guide them through realizing their full potential.
Vinnie has an athletic background in rugby and football. He was also on the cheer team in school. You’re more than likely to catch him upside down, or coaching one of the members in the gym. With his knowledge, patience, and understanding of the technique and mechanics behind gymnastics, he makes for an excellent go-to for honing your skills and achieving your goals. Vinnie’s approach is optimistic and realistic. He truly believes in his athletes, and that they are capable of achieving anything they set their mind to.
Next to family, martial arts is my life! It all started with Karate, and the experience I gained moving from club to club. In 1992, I joined the Canadian Jiu Jitsu and received my black belt in 2000. During this time, I also competed in many sport Jiu Jitsu matches and made the Canadian team three times. In 2007, and as part of the Canadian team, I went to the Worlds in the Channel Islands, where the team received a Silver. Furthermore, I have competed in amateur boxing, Muay Thai Kickboxing and gi and no gi grappling matches. I hold a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, under the training and instruction of Marcio Nunes. I have a black belt in Krav Maga and am a certified instructor.
Since starting at CFC 2 years ago, I have gained strength, friendships and a true respect for CrossFit. This gym is about community, support, working hard and having fun and the coaches go above and beyond to help members achieve their personal goals. I would highly recommend CrossFit Cambria!
CrossFit Cambria has helped me feel more confident and comfortable with who I am! The coach’s and wonderful members make this place what it is, an amazing learning and developing atmosphere! Finding a passion to never miss a class, or participate in the CrossFit Open was something I never thought would happen… And I’ve done both!! I love the gym, and I look forward to every workout.
CrossFit Cambria is that place where you feel comfortable in your own skin without any judgement. The coaches and members make you feel like you belong once you walk through the door. Words cannot express the feeling of seeing your body changing and becoming stronger with every work out.
CrossFit has built my confidence and I have done things I never thought possible! I can’t believe I am doing handstands which is great and I love it! I have made great friends too! I feel lucky to still be healthy enough to do the lifts and different things that I do like double under even though I only get one at a time and the strength I have for the lifts I do! Very excited that I can now do handstands never been able to do that!
Leaving a regular gym and joining CrossFit Cambria has made fitness and working out fun, you find yourself surrounded by excellent coaching staff and positive fun members that make it feel more like a big family doing a whole lot of fun fitness and the results just start piling up!!
I would highly recommend Crossfit Cambria to anyone looking to lose weight or simply gain strength. While I don’t own a scale, I know I have dropped 3 dress sizes and am smaller (and stronger!) now than before I was pregnant. The environment at Crossfit Cambria is friendly and welcoming. If I can do it, anyone can.
I was almost 350lbs and could not walk up and down the stairs without being out of breath.I wanted to change not only for myself, but for my family. I found CrossFit Cambria and they have helped me every step of the way. In the last year I have lost almost 90 lbs and 10 dress sizes. I am healthier, I have more confidence, I’m stronger and I can now keep up with my kids. CrossFit Cambria is like a second home to me, and the members are like family.
My success so far is a direct result of the elements that you provide as a coach, WOD programming, coaching on technique, diet and motivation, but also the intangible things you have built; the friendly atmosphere, the feeling of comradery and the belief that the people around you are as invested in your success as you are. These things are reflective of your positive attitude and the passion you have for what you do.
“It doesn’t always feel that way but constraints in life are a good thing. Especially if we can accept them and let them direct us. They push us to places and to develop skills that we’d otherwise never have pursued. Would you rather have everything? Sure, but that isn’t up to us.” Acceptance. What a…
One of my favourite quotes is this; ‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our greatest fear is that we are more powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be fabulous, brilliant, talented, gorgeous? Actually, who are you not…
