Meet ForteFit Kinesiology
Beat Pain at its Own Game
Get Out of Pain With Personal Training
Movement and health is important to Kyle, because for many years, he didn’t have either. Chronic neck and back pain during childhood prevented him from engaging in the activities he longed to enjoy.
Life threw him a curveball in 2015. He ended up in the ICU with Myopericarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle and lining, caused by autoimmune response. He was forced to move home, unable to take care of himself until he recovered, and take heavy, prescription drugs. In those moments, everything seemed bleak. Kyle wanted to be in charge of his own life!
Kyle was forced to pivot. He had to seek new answers and methods. Through research and working with the right health practitioners, he learned how to create a lifestyle that was specific to his dreams and goals. He regained full health, was able to resume his life, prescription-drug free.
Kyle was inspired, because he knew of others experiencing the same struggles he had, and now there were answers he could share with them. He focused his studies in this area, getting certified as a personal trainer through the International Sport Science Association, with additional studies in Z-Health Essentials, to learn how the health of a person’s neurology impacts movement. He began working with personal training clients, and quickly found he had a knack for rehab and functional strength training.
In the Winter of 2019, Kyle earned his diploma of Kinesiology from Langara College and was then accepted to the faculty of Kinesiology at the University of British Columbia, where he is completing his bachelor’s degree. Kyle plans to continue into sports medicine, or physiotherapy.
Today, he works with many clients, helping them get out of pain and helping them move better. He loves to watch people progress, reach their goals and gain the self-confidence that comes with those achievements. “The best thing you can hear from a client is that their pain is gone, and they have more energy than ever before!” Kyle says.
In his personal life, he has a beautiful son who he enjoys sharing the outdoors with. Spending time in nature is his connection to the Earth, for calming his mind so he can continue to experience a state of healing and harmony in his body.

I have always been an active, healthy individual and since my twenties, have joined both the community centre and local gyms over the years. I first met Kyle In June of 2018 when Kyle approached me at Steve Nash Fitness World and asked if I’d be interested in a free PT session. Even though I’d never had a personal trainer in the past, I said ‘yes’. I had nothing to lose and I was wanting to change up my workout a little bit. I had always said that I would hire a personal trainer in the future, why not now?!
At the end of our session, Kyle asked me, going forward, what were my future goals i.e., lifestyle, diet, strength training and areas that I wanted to focus on the most. We decided to start first by changing my lifestyle, diet and eating more healthily. This included drinking more water, increasing calorie intake, and cutting out sugar. This was a first, as I had never incorporated protein into every meal as well as snacks twice a day. Next step was committing to work out four or five days a week with rotating, prescribed exercises designed by Kyle.
After a slow start, I gradually started to notice subtle changes in my legs, core and arms. Then, as I progressed, Kyle continued to introduce more strenuous exercises like resistance and new challenges such as pull-ups and push-ups. Over the course of the year, results have been amazing! I’ve been building strength, quite a bit of muscle mass and tone, endurance (taking on classes such as “Tabata”) and increasing self-confidence. As I became stronger in my arms, legs and core, I now look forward to new challenges. I’ve also found that I sleep more soundly, have a new balanced regimented diet, more energy and improved mental and physical well-being. Not only am I in the best shape that I’ve ever been in, I’m also much stronger! I feel as though I can take on more challenges! I love it!
I have hired Kyle for over two years now. I decided to keep going with the PT sessions because the results were so progressive in such a short period of time. I’m so glad I’ve made this lifestyle change. Kyle definitely keeps me motivated and I look forward to our weekly sessions. I don’t know why I waited so long to hire a personal trainer! I will continue this fitness journey toward total body wellness with Kyle now and well into the future.
