Derek Wrzecionek

Over the last 9 years, I have trained close to 1,000 people between the ages of 15 to 81.  These people include sedentary individuals who were unfamiliar with the gym environment, all the way up to elite level athletes from such organizations as the OHL, Canadian University Varsity Athletic Teams (OUA/CIS), and Division 1, 2, and 3 American College and University Athletic Teams  (NCAA).  I have worked in the physiotherapy/ rehabilitation field since 1999 and have worked with people suffering from WSIB claims, MVA claims, and people who have suffered major cardiac issues and are going through the cardiac rehabilitation program at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Science Centre.
