NAIT Personal Training Program, PICP Level 2 Certified Trainer, Biosignature Practitioner
My passion in life is fitness and I believe in practicing what I preach. I graduated from the Personal Fitness Training program at NAIT in 1999, and have continued my commitment to education by attending numerous seminars and internships with experts such as Charles Poliquin (strength, nutrition, supplementation, fat loss, muscle gain), Pierre Roy (explosive strength), Dr. Suzanne Mack (nutrition, detoxification, fat loss, supplementation), Dr. James LaValle (metabolism, hormones), Mark Schauss
(effects ofenvironmental toxicity on health, supplementation), Jeanette Bessinger (nutrition), and Milos Sarcev (muscle gain, supplementation), Dr. James LaValle (metabolism, hormones), Mark Schauss (effects of environmental toxicity on health, supplementation), Jeanette Bessinger (nutrition), and Milos Sarcev (muscle gain, supplementation).
I have gained ample experience in the fitness industry working with a broad range of clients from pro athletes (Jay Bouwmeester, Dion Phaneuf), Olympic gold medalists (Kevin Martin curling team), to clients who have never been to a gym before.
I specialize in fat loss and muscle gain. Clients come to me for results. My passion, experience, attention to detail, exercise selection with correct form and a motivated client equals results. I look forward to assisting you to better health and fitness.
“Mike Ljevaja has been my personal trainer since 2001. I noticed positive results almost immediately. Our teams win/loss record prior to starting with Mike was about 80% every year. The season Mike and I started together our teams win/loss went up to 87%. In the last 11 years our win/loss record has been as high as 91% and never worse than 85%. I can definitely thank a lot of our teams, and my successes to Mike Ljevaja's training.” Kevin Martin - 2010 Olympic Gold Medalist
