MEET THE TEAM

My name is Zachary Boissinot. I am a personal trainer, coach and the owner of A Foot Above Fitness. I was just an overweight teenager with low self-esteem and a soft midsection. I help others on their fitness journey so that the turmoil of getting into shape isn’t so intimidating. Most of all – I pride myself on my ability to solve fitness problems as they present themselves.
ZACHARY BOISSINOT, Owner

I have been in the fitness industry for over 9+ years now. Prior to that I had been working in the service industry for many years and I was just finding that it wasn’t my calling; I felt that I was missing something. Which led me to bounce around from job to job, until I stumbled upon personal training and coaching. I had always been passionate about training myself, from martial arts to bodybuilding to functional training, which led me to soon realize the impact I could make as a coach.

Eric Zeng, Trainer

His main focus is to teach others how to apply methods that keep them healthy and fit. He has over 5 years of experience in the field. His eagerness to share his knowledge on training began through martial arts at a young age, he started his personal fitness journey & it has now developed into a passion for applied biomechanics. His approach to fitness emphasizes age-appropriate programming with a focal point of strength/hypertrophy training in combination with balance and flexibility training. He establishes long-term client interactions with the goal of integrating exercises, routines and holistic wellness into the demands of daily life. A great Coach for those who want to lose weight , grow stronger and become a healthier version of themselves.

The HealthN.E.S.S Coach, Trainer

I have a natural ability to coach, and to educate people when it comes to their bodies. I aim to inspire everyone I train to reach their full potential, and to live their best life possible. Through a mixture of yoga, martial arts, and strength and conditioning, I aim to provide the most amount of value I can for my clients and to walk alongside them on each of their journeys.

We all stumble, and we all lose our way, but that does not mean that we are lost forever. Whatever your fitness goals may be, big or small, I am eager to help you in any way that I can.

CRISTIAN CALLA, Trainer

“The Summit is what drives us, but the climb itself is what matters.

I am here to help you with every step of that journey. Fitness has been a cornerstone in my life for many years and continues to be important to me. Before I was a personal trainer I worked in hospitality and so I understand that there is more to life than squats and six packs. True fitness comes from finding your pack, those people who will look out for your best interest. Fitness is more than the hour you spend with me during your workouts. It is the time in between, the connections you build, the decisions you make, the environment you build. So let me help your fitness journey and build an environment geared to your success.

JONEL DERISIER, Trainer

I have been in the industry for 10 years now and very thankful to be in a field that I am completely able to submerge myself and feel passionate about.

I am a registered holistic nutritionist, a graduate of the Canadian School of Natural nutrition, a fascial stretch therapist and Precision nutrition coach – just to name a few of my credentials. I have worked with thousands of humans over the years and this has also helped me learn and understand how the human body works, adapts and progresses.  There are no magic programs or cookie cutters, but there is a bio-individualized program for each person.

I look forward to hearing from you!

MISSION STATEMENT

Here at A Foot Above Fitness, we have only ever made client’s health our top priority. We specialize in one-on-one personal training but also have a well-equipped facility that you will have access to with your personal training.

So long as you are seeing a personal trainer for two (2) one on one sessions per week then you have full access to the facility whenever you want it, included in the price for training. However, we do not sell just a membership. What that means is we have a very close community of like-minded people who are all working hard to improve themselves in the gym and in life. This also means that we have a very safe community. We look out for each other. We share thoughts and ideas. We all do our best to take care of anyone under our roof.

The personal trainers are all contractors in the building and set their own prices and specialties. Which makes it very easy to match you with a trainer who will be ideal for all your needs. Whatever you are interested in trying to get better at, we have someone who can help!

The facility itself is 4300 square feet and has almost 3000 square feet of gym floor. The rest of the space is changerooms, bathrooms and showers. We do not let any space go to waste and the gym is laid out, so it has everything you need without feeling cramped. It really is worth seeing it for yourself.

If you are interested in talking more, please do not hesitate to reach out. We look forward to helping you on your fitness journey!
