Gavin Buehler – Owner/Operator

Born and raised in Toronto, Gavin’s foray into fitness began from an early age when his Swiss father propped him up on an old set of wood skis with spring bindings and ankle straps and nudged him down a hill.  From there he was involved in numerous sport activities before settling on competitive gymnastics.  After retiring from gymnastics he kept up with physical activity through martial arts and weight training.  Finding true passion and gratification when assisting others with their movement and health goals, Gavin would become a personal trainer and lifelong student of health and wellness.  As a registered massage therapist he graduated from the Canadian College of Massage and Hydrotherapy with the designation of Magna Cum Laude and a hospital specialization.  Always searching for new knowledge to share with his clients, he constantly embarks on educational challenges.  He has been in the fitness industry for over a decade and has held an array of certifications including:
