Neil Hosty

 

Areas of Expertise

Neil is a Canfitpro certified personal trainer with many years of experience in Olympic Weightlifting that gives him a sound understanding of practical biomechanics and strength training. Neil is always furthering his education through research and is currently attending Mohawk College to become a Registered Massage Therapist.

Experience

Neil has been involved in fitness for over 7 years now. Starting out as a young, highly overweight, and unmotivated teenager he turned his life around with an investment into health and wellness. From weighing over 300lbs at 16 years’ old he gradually worked his way down to a healthy bodyweight that allowed him to run half marathons, play competitive sports, and find a real passion for weightlifting. Neil’s life changing weight loss changed his perspective on life and he uses his new perspective to inspire and motivate his clients.

Training Characteristics

Neil believes that the key to being a great trainer is the ability to access and correct each of his clients accurately. This includes identifying proper joint function, muscular strengths and weaknesses, injuries, programming, and lifestyle choices. His goal is to create a stronger and healthier YOU with this system but also believes that working out should not be a chore and does everything he can to make his sessions very enjoyable.
