- OUR TEAM -

JASPER

    Jasper has been one of Canada’s most reputable endurance athletes for the past two decades. His accomplishments are numerous; including 2006 Canada Ironman champion and dozens of professional wins as a triathlete. From the year 2000 to 2011 Jasper never finished lower than 5th in an Ironman with the exception of one race in 2001.

    I like to make my workouts fun and energetic. So much so you won’t even realize the effort you’re putting out to get the most of your work out. My eclectic brand of music will have you humming along and shaking your bod as you roll towards your fitter you.

   Mike Neill is a former professional Triathlete with 26 Ironman finishes over a 15 year career, including 11 Ironman World Championships where he was the top placing Canadian for 4 straight years from 2006 – 2009. Mike was named Triathlon Canada’s Elite Long Distance Athlete of the year in 2006.  Mike has been the Head Coach of Human Powered Racing Canada since it’s launch in 2006.

   My workouts bring the strong cycling component of triathlon to every set. A little classic rock will get your heart pumping and sweat flowing like you’re front row at a Springsteen concert.

RYAN

   Ryan is an avid cyclist and masters bike racer. But don’t let all that spandex fool you, Ryan has been teaching spin since the early 2000s and knows how to match the beat on those hard cadence sessions, and will get you

to your best form ever.

   In the fine words of C+C Music Factory: I’m Gonna Make You Sweat! Bike racers, triathletes, weekend warriors or just fresh off the couch, there’s something for everyone on Wednesday evenings at The Loft.

ALICIA

   A passionate and dedicated Age Group Triathlete and B78 Coach.  Alicia completed her first triathlon over 12 years ago, and has been hooked ever since.  She carries that drive and excitement from the pursuit of triathlon into supporting others in their endurance and multisport pursuits.

    My Fall sessions will focus will on functional, intentional and challenging training sets. These sets will support maintaining your summer fitness and hold off the low light blues as we move into the shorter days.

    Attitude is everything and some of the juiciest, most fulfilling experiences lay along the journey to the finish.
