Carl is the creator and owner of CityFit, a professional training arena designed to be a unique and stimulating fitness centre for clients and personal trainers alike.
Since the young age of 14 years old, Carl began ‘hitting the weights’ in his parents basement and after reaching the age of 18, and being legally able to purchase a gym membership, he began training regularly and hasn’t missed more than a month straight in 20+ years.
Understanding the importance of overall well-being in promoting physical strength and health, Carl began what he calls an ‘education of a 1000 pieces’ with a massage therapy program. Over the years, he has added to his knowledge and expertise, developing his own fitness philosophy which revolves around accessing the body’s potential through the mind’s ability to visualize the moment.
After working for over a decade as a successful personal trainer in several Calgary fitness centres, Carl knew the training landscape was in dire need of something different. That’s why, in the spring of 2014, he opened CityFit, a custom-training centre created to stimulate and engage enormous physical and mental growth in potential clients and personal trainers. Notably, Carl enjoys working with senior executives and business owners who are looking to unravel the effects of inactivity and less than ideal lifestyle habits.
Always seeking to expand his knowledge and reach, Carl is also the training consultant to the upcoming, wide-release book, I.M Possible Muscle for the Mind: The Ultimate Guide to Achieving Success When Success Seems Impossible.
Apart from the Canadian staple hobbies of hockey and snowboarding, Carl also loves to travel and, thanks to his European ancestry, looks forward to inviting George Clooney over to sip scotch on the patio of his Spanish Villa.
