Our Exercise Specialists

The Le Physique Trainers and Specialists 

Your progress is our passion and when you’re here, you’re home

Fitness is not meant to be a single objective. It is a way of life that touches upon other core facets of life. Perhaps what matters just as much as what you’re doing, is who you’re doing it with.

Each member of our team combines their top-level education with passion to ensure that you receive the highest standard of service every step of your journey. We know that optimal health and fitness is best obtained through a holistic and integrated approach. Guided by a solid foundation in kinesiology, anatomy, biomechanics, and physiology, our trainers and specialists seamlessly work together to ensure all aspects of your health and wellness are cared for.

Our team may hail from different backgrounds, but we’re united by a single mission: to promote your health and vitality in a way that feels personal.

Take a peek at our team bios. We hope to meet you at the studio someday!

Shadow Angel

Mascot and Client Aide

It’s the fire in your heart, daring to think big, and to dream of what may not seem possible that makes all the difference in the world.

Amelia Ng

Athletic Therapist, Kinesiologist
