Nathaniel Ellis

Growing up in the small town of Tillsonburg, Nathaniel has always been passionate about athletics and physical activity. For as long as he can remember, team sports such as hockey, soccer, and basketball have been a foundational aspect of his life. This passion transformed into an academic pursuit, as he attended the University of Guelph-Humber and received a Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Kinesiology and a Diploma in Health and Fitness Promotion. This gave Nathaniel the skills and understanding he requires to pursue a career focused on the things that intrigue and inspire him the most.

His interest in sports and athletic performance lead to an internship at the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario (CSIO) giving him experience observing and interacting with the coaching and training of elite olympic athletes. Through this experience, as well as athletics serving as the primary method of exercise throughout his youth, Nathaniel gained an appreciation for more compound, dynamic modes of exercise.

His philosophy emphasizes that as we train our muscles we are also training our control and coordination of them, so why not ensure our body functions as a whole, and not many individual parts? On top of physical benefits, knowing the influence daily activity can have over his mood and energy levels, Nathaniel is a strong believer that exercise can have a potent, positive effect on mental health.
