MICHÈLE LETENDRE

All my life I have been around Sport and Art. I was a competitive swimmer then Waterpolo player for many years in my childhood into my teens. I have competed provincially, nationally and internationally in Waterpolo and in some cases as team captain. I studied design in University and nearing the end of my degree is when I found CrossFit and the rest is history.

CARIANNE METI

I was an energetic kid, touched pretty much every sports and specialties possible because I wanted to learn new stuff and meet people while being super active. At the age of 16 I combined my passion for
physical activity, teaching and community by leading aerobic classes and being a personal trainer. From then several certifications, exchanges with experienced teachers/coaches and of course a lot of training. I
am a strong believer that you can have a whole lot of fun and still perform at a high level. I can’t wait to work, share and laugh with you.

ANDRICK FOURNIER

As a child I was a competitive hockey player, so I started Crossfit with the determination to compete as an elite athlete. After a couple of months, I quickly understood that I wanted to dedicate my whole life to coaching and helping people achieve their goals. Which is directly linked to my choice of education and my desire to help people adopt a healthy lifestyle. As a coach, I truly believe that an athlete who wants to get better must master both physical and psychological aspects of his sport. Also, ensuring that my athletes grow with integrity, fun and stay focus on the goals set is part of my core values.

KEVIN BOWLES

Located at CrossFit Oshawa

My goal as a Coach is to learn and focus on building the Athlete to become better than they were yesterday, towards their greatness. Understanding the Athlete in order to provide the grounds of opportunity is a crucible step in our process. The next step is to lay the foundation with a strong mentality, sound fundamentals, and attention to detail.

I truly believe that competition is the greatest teacher in life. I learnt the values of competitive sports at an early age through Triathlons, Hockey, and Lacrosse. I then found CrossFit and began to compete; a regional athlete in 2011 & 2012, including the first ever Regional. I have since allowed my drive as an athlete to transition into coaching likeminded competitive athletes.
