"Absorb what is useful, discard what is not" - Bruce Lee.
This quote sums up Oscar's approach to training and fitness. Throughout the years, he has developed a philosophy based on science, experimentation and personal experience. One thing that unifies all of his training is an emphasis on functional strength: everyone can benefit from becoming stronger. "In sport as in life, strength kills!"
With over 15 years experience in the fitness industry along with a Bachelor of Human Kinetics and Education, Oscar has pursued his education in strength and conditioning with designations from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (CSCS), the International Youth Conditioning Association ,CanFit Pro(PT), and Titleist Golf. He was the Sudbury Wolves’ Strength Coach for two seasons and has worked with not only athletes but people from all walks of life trying to get stronger, leaner as well as come back from injuries.
"Fitness is not something that any given discipline can claim as their own. Olympic lifting, Sport-Specific Training, Group Training, Bodybuilding and Crossfit-type training all have positive elements that can benefit the individual looking to get fit. In the end, it all depends on what 'fitness' means to you. Each person needs to train according to their own goals, timeframes as well as limitations. This is where I come in. By not limiting myself or my clients to one way of training, I am able to provide the safest, most effective custom routines, no matter what the goal. I've made fitness my life so that you don't have to."
