Blitz Calgary – The first love-child of Blitz Conditioning…

Blitz Calgary

I am so proud and excited to be sharing the first blog coming out of Blitz Calgary! Blitz Conditioning (out of Edmonton) is an amazing community-oriented personal training studio that was built from the ground up by Brett Kirkland and Chris Tse: two guys with a passion for health and fitness, and people. Their passion to connect with the people around them, and the pride they take in high-quality fitness training has earned them a top spot among training facilities in Edmonton. After 3 years, they’ve decided to open Blitz Calgary, a personal training studio that will grow organically from Calgarians that want to be a part of a gym that makes them feel comfortable, provides innovative and functional training, promotes whole-body health, and of course, makes them SWEAT!

I am so honoured to have been brought onto Blitz Conditioning Inc. I am originally from Edmonton, and have lived in Calgary for the past 5 years. I am an Engineer who has always been active in team and individual sports, as well as the outdoors. Two years ago I began my career in fitness when I became a group fitness instructor, a bootcamp leader, and a personal trainer. I loved to be a part of people leading healthy, active lives. I truly believe fitness brings people together, because camaraderie is built when people go through rigorous sweating, muscle-burning activities together.

Leigh and JasonOne of Blitz’s top trainers, Amy Coppens, will also be joining me at Blitz Calgary – part time from May – September, and then full time in October (after she completes her second Ironman- Go girl!). She is a true leader and inspiration in fitness, and in the volunteering community (She also works for Etisah Foundation which just finished building an Orphanage in Cameroon, and coaches the Leukemia Society Run Team). Oh yeah, and did I mention she recently received an award for being among the Top 30 under 30 by the Alberta Council of Global Cooperation? Sorry Amy…but I’m so proud!!

Blitz Calgary currently trains out of a great functional space called “Jungle Strength and Performance” right in the heart of the City, on the corner of 17th Avenue SW and 5th Street. We currently provide one-on-one training, small group training, and will soon be offering a women’s bootcamp. With Calgary being such an active and outdoors city, we’ve got big plans for you – so stay tuned to see what’s ahead in the next few months 😉

Hope to see you soon!
