With a clear drive to share his passion for health, fitness and wellbeing, founder and fearless leader Stuart Klassen, opened MORFIT Training Centre in December 2011.

Education:

In 2009, Stuart completed his Exercise Science degree at the University of Winnipeg. During this time, he certified as a Personal Trainer through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology (CSEP-CPT). Striving to reach a further diverse population, Stuart upgraded his certification to Certified Exercise Physiologist (CSEP-CEP), enabling him to train all populations: healthy and those with chronic health conditions.

Experience:

Stuart has been training clients since 2009, and has worked with a wide variety of populations including: clients seeking weight loss, sports teams, marathon runners, muscle builders, clients looking to manage their diabetes, cerebral palsy, arthritis… and many other perfectly unique clients. He has worked as a consultant for coaches in various sports, the City of Winnipeg, and Princess Auto.

Personal interests:

On the off chance Stuart leaves the gym, you can find him playing and coaching his own Ultimate team, the Sweaty Kumquats! He also enjoys playing guitar, spending time with family and reading. His personal goals are ever changing, from performing handstands to a true one-arm chin-up to running the 2014 Manitoba marathon.

Training philosophy:

Opening MORFIT has given Stuart the opportunity to take training in the direction he feels most comfortable. He is very particular when designing programs for clients. Every person is unique and he considers lifestyle habits, personal traits, body type, and the likes and dislikes of each client when creating programs. Stuart continually modifies workout routines and monitors progress to ensure his clients receive the most personalized program to meet their goals.
Through MORFIT, Stuart’s dreams have finally come to fruition!

I am currently attending the University of Winnipeg and I am in my fourth year of an athletic therapy degree. I plan to certify with the Canadian Athletic Therapists Association in the future. I can’t wait to see where my degree will take me!

I have loved physical activity for as long as I can remember and have always enjoyed participated in sports. I have been coaching competitive rhythmic gymnastics for over 6 years and I was a gymnast for 12 years. I love being able to apply knowledge gained from my years as an athlete and add in my skills as an athletic therapy student.

More recently I have taken on the Winnipeg Wesmen Women’s Volleyball team and I am acting as their student athletic therapist. I love getting to know the athletes and helping them achieve their goals while caring for their injuries. I am very excited to travel with the team this season! I am also working as a student therapist with a high school football team and learning how different it is to work with a contact sport!

I love working at MORFIT because of the atmosphere in the gym. Between the staff and the members, the smiles are contagious. When I’m not studying or in the gym I love running outdoors, snowboarding, and traveling.

With an intense passion for music and movement, Nikki blazed into the fitness world and into MORFIT Training Centre!

Education:

  • Certified Athletic Therapist
  • Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology)
  • Certified Personal Trainer (CSEP-CPT)

Experience:

Nikki’s contagious passion for movement comes from eight years as a professional dancer and instructor.

Since she certified as a trainer in 2012, Nikki has inspired an eclectic mix of clients, including: office personnel, dancers, individuals with mobility restrictions, and high school and university level athletes. As a Certified Athletic Therapist, she applies her knowledge and experience in physical assessment and rehabilitation to her program design.

Personal interests:

When she isn’t prancing around the gym, Nikki is usually eating sushi! During the summer months, she heads out to the cabin as often as she can to water ski and enjoy the sun.

Training philosophy:

Nikki believes every goal and ambition is personal and unique. As a trainer, she ensures clients not only meet their goals, but take the journey alongside someone they feel comfortable with. When working with clients, Nikki’s passion for movement is apparent and often contagious! Spontaneous mid-workout groove sessions have been known to occur!

Classes: CRAVE

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology) in 2012, Nikki completed her Personal Training Certification with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. While working as a personal trainer and fitness instructor, Nikki continued practicing Athletic Therapy and successfully completed the certification exams in June 2014. While working full-time as an Athletic Therapist at MORFIT, Nikki also spends time instructing rehabilitation in the lab at the University of Winnipeg.

Nikki believes that everybody and every body has a story and they’re all different, requiring a personalized approach. As a former dancer, Nikki has a deeper understanding of pelvic and core dysfunction and the way it can manifest outward to the rest of the body.

Her continuing education and treatment tools of interest include: Soft Tissue Release, Selective Functional Movement Assessment, trigger point therapy, myofascial cupping, and acupuncture (pending, Dec).

In the clinic, Nikki works with a variety of clients, including general public, MPI and WCB claims, pre and post surgery patients, and university level athletes. In the field, she has worked with high school level track & field, hockey, volleyball, basketball, swim teams, and the University of Winnipeg Wrestling team. Additionally, Nikki has been Head Therapist for the Clansmen Football Team five years running.

You’ve probably seen Nikki behind the desk, personal training or teaching one of MORFIT’s cardio-dance classes.

Often described as an “adventure”, Kathlyn brings diverse experience to the gym and always has a story to tell.

Education:

  • BSc. In Kinesiology, Athletic Therapy Specialization (4th year)
  • Red Cross First Responder

Experience:

Using her athletic background to her advantage, Kathlyn has years of experience as a coach in a variety of sports and has recently began teaching fitness classes through the University of Winnipeg (fitness for older adults) and here at MORfit (Functional Training and Conditioning). With a love for teaching and helping others challenge themselves, Kathlyn looks forward to continuing to build her experience in the strength and conditioning world.

Personal interests:

Kathlyn has been an athlete for most of her life, participating in soccer, cross country running, volleyball, basketball, badminton, curling, and track and field (discus and long jump). She has also been training and competing as an equestrian athlete (hunter/jumper) and currently this sport remains her biggest focus. Over the last few years she has been privileged to compete at a provincial and national level, and has plans to continue achieving her goals within riding. Competing in a Modern Pentathlon is also on Kathlyn’s bucket list (running, shooting, swimming, fencing, and show jumping).

Combining her love of her sport and love of education, Kathlyn has been able to begin research into biomechanics and specific strength training for equestrian athletes. This is something she continues to work on, and looks forward to seeing where it can take her in the future as an athletic therapist. If she isn’t at the desk or at the barn, Kathlyn can be found working on her yoga practice, running on any number of trails, swimming, or in the gym lifting weights.

Training Philosophy:

No body is the same- there is no cookie cutter approach to training or fitness!

A graduate of the University of Winnipeg Athletic Therapy program in 2009, Robyn became a certified Athletic Therapist in the same year. Her career began at the University of Winnipeg Athletic Therapy Centre, combining the practice of therapy and student mentorship. After 5 years with the University Robyn joined the MORFIT team in October, 2014.

It is her belief that providing education behind each injury, and explaining the purpose with each exercise prescribed will help deepen your involvement in the injury rehabilitation process. Robyn involves each client in the development of an efficient, strategic rehabilitation plan that will allow the client’s goals to be reached.

Robyn has spent a great deal of time continuing her education furthering her knowledge and developing an extensive tool box of techniques to pull from. A treatment could include movement analysis, myofascial release, myofascial cupping, trigger point treatment, postural/core retraining, strength training and assisted stretching; treatment plans are individualized to suit each client’s area of concern and ability. Areas of interest for Robyn include: functional movement training; body and postural awareness; ACL reconstruction (pre- and post- surgical); running and cycling mechanics and injury prevention; rehabilitating sport specific injuries; and, manual techniques to resolve headaches/migraines.

A former ringette and team handball competitor, Robyn can now be found on her road bike, in a yoga studio, on her cross country skies, doing body weight training workouts on a play structure or jogging the Wolseley/Wellington loop in her free time.

Robyn always has time to communicate with you so please don’t hesitate to reach out should you have questions. Appointments can be booked by calling her at 204-999-0128, or through email at athletictherapy@hotmail.ca

I graduated from McGill University with a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences and became a Registered Dietitian in 2011. Through my schooling I was very fortunate to have internships that allowed me to work with athletes, infants, adolescents, adults and the elderly population. Theses experiences enabled me to provide the best nutritional care for people with various chronic or acute illnesses.

My approach focuses on providing the necessary tools and resources that enable clients to make healthy nutritional choices. I am fluently bilingual and capable of conducting interviews and giving nutritional recommendations in French and English.

On a side note, I have been doing judo for the past 16 years of my life. As a competitive athlete my nutrition knowledge has allowed me to eat properly pre and post competition, which led to some very positive results in my career. Aside from judo I always like to try new sports and enjoy cross country skiing, surfing, ultimate Frisbee, hiking and running.

I look forward to meeting with new clients that are ready to optimize their nutritional health.
