Hi, I'm Peter Ellingson

I provide personal training classes in Vancouver, BC.

The sessions are tailored to your own individual
needs and include full nutritional support.

Exercise isn’t easy. It should be mentally and physically challenging. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. At EPIC, I focus in on your specific needs and create a personal training and nutritional program that hones in on your exact requirements.

Since each session and individual is unique, I will work with you on many different techniques and a range of equipment to push your body to the correct limit. I enjoy changing things up regularly, as it not only works different muscle groups to help your overall toning, but it keeps things fresh for you mentally. If your head’s in the game, you’ll always look forward to seeing what comes next.

By combining personal training with nutritional information, you can get all your fitness needs in one place, rather than doubling up. This not only saves you time and money, it’s much more efficient from a training perspective. Here are some of the benefits you’ll get:

  • Get into better shape
  • Sculpt your overall body
  • Fine tune your skills as an athlete
  • Build upon your abilities as an artistic performer
  • Improve your appearance
  • Feel better about yourself

People think Holistic Nutrition is just another word for dieting. That’s far from the truth. Instead, it’s a way to completely makeover how you think about eating and what you put into your body. This isn’t just about “losing weight” or “toning your body.” It’s also about exercising your mind and overall well being. Here are a few examples of the numerous health aspects we can tackle together:

  • Fine tuning your body for sculpting and development
  • Getting maximum athletic performance
  • Enhancing specific functions for a healthy body
  • Elevating your everyday emotional state
  • Keeping a sharp mental focus and clarity
  • Increased energy throughout the entire day
  • Deep satisfying sleep
  • Injury recovery
  • Rebuilding and rebalancing your immune system
  • Detoxifying
  • Overcoming anxiety
  • Hormone balancing
  • Removing addictions (from big ones to small cravings like sugar)

Complimentary Assessment

After your free consultation, i will put together an in-depth assessment of the key target areas for you and your body. Looking at your body type and lifestyle, I will suggest the best course of action for you to take in terms of personal training and nutrition.

Personal Fitness Program

Using a combination of cardio workouts and weight training, we will work on a personal fitness program together, one that fits in perfectly with your lifestyle to get the maximum results you deserve!

Nutritional Program

Besides just "working out," I will help you set up a unique nutritional program to provide your body with the proper nutrients and building blocks to make the most of our training together. In addition to helping you achieve a better body, the right nutrition will give you a better outlook on life all around.

Real Results

Even though you'll quickly see results as we start working together, we will constantly be changing things up both in terms of physical fitness programs, as well as your nutritional plan. Your body will be adjusting to your routine, and we'll be adjusting with it.

Through my unique background, history, and studies, I have both the skills and knowledge to train your body and inspire your mind.

Fitness and nutrition has always been important to me. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been an extremely active individual, not one to just sit still and let life pass me by. These days, I enjoy keeping busy with a variety of physical activities such as rock climbing, mountain biking, martial arts, yoga, and snowboarding.

I also love training and continually learning about nutrition and fitness. When faced with some unique medical conditions, I began devouring medical and health books, learning anything and everything I could about nutrition and optimal health. Coupled with serious educational studies, I have earned a number of key certifications. New techniques are always being discovered and I love to constantly continue my education.

When I was in my 20s, life threw some major hurdles in my path. I was diagnosed with arthritis in my hips and lower back, as well as a degenerated lower lumbar. For someone young and extremely active, this was a death sentence. Doctors told me to just accept it and learn to live with a non-active lifestyle.

Not a chance.

I studied up and recovered. It wasn’t easy but I refused to give in. I just couldn’t accept what doctors were telling me. Settling just wasn’t in my blood. So I studied a great deal of health and medical journals in order to heal my body by increasing self awareness about how bodies work.

It worked and I was able to live an active lifestyle once again. Until my late 20s, that is, when unexplained symptoms built up so much I could barely walk. No one could give me a proper diagnosis and all those countless tests were fruitless.

I refused to give up.

Through personal studies and holistic nutrition schooling, I solved the puzzle myself and soon understood what I was dealing with. I overcame an odd combination of toxicity, nutrient deficiency by malabsorption, dysbiosis, candida overgrowth, and severe adrenal fatigue. Now I teach running classes and push people to their full potential.

Excuses are just a waste of breath.

My beliefs are extremely simple. It’s all about strength. True strength.

To achieve your goals, you need strength on all levels. That means rebuilding your body from the very core of your being — your cells — all the way on up. That’s why what you put into your body is as important as how you exercise your muscles.

Using a holistic approach, I help bring out the ultimate shape and performance of your body. Every individual is unique, so I custom tailor specific programs to each of my clients. We go over a very special diet and nutrition plan, as well as a unique fitness program. There is only one you, so shouldn’t you have your very own fitness plan?

I can help you get strong. I can help you work your muscles, fuel your body, and find a strong balance in your life.

I can offer you the inspiration, guidance, and motivation to achieve your health and fitness goals.

The most important weapon you have in life, though, is your will. Keep it strong and there is nothing you can’t achieve!

Stay strong!
