SYLVAIN FOURNIER

PERSONAL TRAINER & OSTEOPATH

For more than 10 years at your service in Montreal, he has been personal training people as well as training others in groups. He is always listening to your needs and knows how to guide you to your limits safely. He is also available to train you in your house, at your place of business (for you and or your employees), and in parks for group or private training.

 

His French diploma is similar to a bachelor in kinesiology with a specialization in sports training as well as group fitness.

 

His goal is to help people feel good in their skin and help them relearn how to properly use their muscles and articulations. He also wants to help people get into a better overall physical shape as well as improve their posture for their day to day life.

 

He favours the quality over quantity approach. He does so by making sure every movement is executed well and the body is in a proper position. A high quantity of repetitions is usually lacking in quality making them useless, dangerous, ineffective and inefficient.
