Tim Licudine,
Personal Trainer

Education: BSc Mind Sciences in Kinesiology, University of Calgary & 3000-hour Massage Therapy Diploma, MaKami College

Certifications & Training: CSEP-Certified Personal Trainer, TRX R4 certified

Tim exercises so that he has the freedom to move the way he wants to, eat the way that he wants to, and live the way that he wants to. He wants to show his clients that fitness isn’t just about a number on a scale, the number of kilometers you can run, or even the amount of weight you can lift. Those numbers will come and go. Rather, fitness is having the discipline to take care of your body and having the confidence in yourself and your abilities in your everyday life.

Tim has an intense desire to help people. He really cares about his clients. Training allows him to help people in a variety of ways. Tim understands the mental and emotional side of fitness and wants to show how fitness can affect not only your body, but almost every aspect of life.

Tim is always looking for ways to expand his knowledge.  He loves to learn – not just about things that will help him with his career – but anything that will help him grow and make him a better person today than he was yesterday. Tim likes to test his limits and work to conquer his fears, so is constantly trying out new ways to test his body and mind.
