Coming from an athletic background, Joe competed for almost 9 years in various sports ranging from Football, Rugby and Basketball. In all of these years I found a passion for fitness and health because it not only made me perform better in my sport, but also gave me the confidence I needed in life. This led him to complete his Bachelor of Science of Kinesiology at Dalhousie University where he began to learn about injury care and prevention and worked as trainer for various sports programs including the MFL (Men’s Football League), AUS Soccer, high school Hockey and Top-40 basketball camps. Joe also has experience in clinic with various Physiotherapists working on injury care and prevention. My experience in sports and education has made me passionate about doing things the right way the first time, as it has great potential to lead everyone to the best results and meet everyone’s short and long term goals! Joe has also learned through clinical and gym experience that everyone is different; therefore everyone’s plan must be specialized to them!

As soon as the last game of the season was over, he started prepping – and he never looked back. Today, Jonni is an IFBB Pro with over 15 shows under his belt. His most memorable show was the 2017 Canadian Nationals where he won overall Super Heavy Weight and Best Poser to claim the title of Mr. Canada. “It was the 150th birthday of Canada on Canada Day,” says Jonni. “It was the perfect day!” When he’s not in the gym, Jonni enjoys playing the piano with his daughter, Selena.
