JOEL BRAVO - CO - OWNER / PROGRAM DIRECTOR / COACH

My passion for Fitness started at a young age. Born and raised in Latin America, Ecuador, I grew up around sports like Soccer, Bodybuilding and Powerlifting. It did not take me long before I joined and competed in the Ecuadorian Bodybuilding & Powerlifting Federation, maxing out a 1RM Deadlift of 425 lbs! My thirst for sports and Bodybuilding training then rose substantially in my life and it became my passion. I pursued my Post-Secondary education with Honors in Exercise Science, Kinesiology and Strength & Conditioning in Toronto, ON and Miami, Fl. 

As a Kinesiologist, Strength & Conditioning Coach and Personal Trainer, I had the successful opportunity to serve as a Strength & Conditioning Coach to professional athletes currently playing for the NFL, MLB, NBA, MLS and NHL in Miami, FL prior to relocating to Toronto to start my business.
