Certification: CSEP-CPT

Background/Experience: I have been active my entire life, always participating in sports and other activities, most notably swimming and hockey. From my love of sports, stemmed a love of fitness which was further solidified throughout my time at U of C.

I love the opportunity this industry provides to connect with so many different people and make a positive impact in their lives. It is my hope to start working with many clients from a variety of backgrounds to continue to learn and be able to share my passion for activity and good health with as many people as possible! I want to assist everyone with achieving their fitness goals and develop their own excitement for movement and physical activity.

Andy Godoy

Education: Bachelor of Kinesiology with Distinction

Certification: CSEP-CPT

Background/Experience: I am originally from Venezuela. I moved to Calgary when I was 14 years old and I’m proud to call it home. I grew up playing all kinds of sports, from soccer and swimming, to martial arts and wakeboarding; I always saw physical activity as an essential part of my life; this, along with my desire to work in the health industry later on, drove me to going into Kinesiology at the University of Calgary for my undergraduate degree.
During my undergraduate degree I gained substantial hands on experience through work, volunteering, and labs. I found that my passion for health, sports, and physical activity could be translated into helping others achieve their health and fitness goals. I am a Certified Personal Trainer with the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology, which is the gold standard for exercise science and personal training. My CPT further expanded my Kinesiology knowledge and allowed me to pursue my dream of helping others achieve their health and fitness goals through personal training.
I believe everyone should be able to conquer their fears and reach their goals. My job is to help individuals push themselves in their quest to become their better self through physical activity. I provide the support and tools for individuals to find the change within themselves, emphasizing functionality and healthy living

Personal Interests: hiking, snowboarding, rockclimbing, weightlifting, sailing, surfing, and travelling.

Beverly Rousselle

Education: B.Sc. in Kinesiology, University of Moncton

Certification: CSEP-CPT

Background/Experience: It is my goal to teach and assist the client in the pursuit of their goals, while instilling the notion of fun, exercise, and healthy living. I believe that if fun and exercise are combined, that they cannot be defeated. One of the recurring daily challenges of many is now becoming the fight for the attainment of true physical fitness, and healthy living. In my experience, I have seen many people struggling with accomplishing these fitness goals that they have long aimed for, often resulting in a negative perception on exercise, fitness and healthy living. I will work with my clients in order to bring the feeling of joy, and fulfillment back to their workout, in order to attain the goals set, while instilling the confidence to carry that positive feeling into all aspects of their lives.

Philosophy/Motto: “Too many people overvalue what they are not, and undervalue what they are.”

Personal Interests: Handball, scrambling, rockclimbing, snowboarding.

Timothy Licudine

Education: BSc Mind Sciences in Kinesiology, University of Calgary & 3000-Hour Massage Therapy Diploma: MaKami College

Certification: CSEP-Certified Personal Trainer, TRX R4 certified

Background/Experience: I exercise so that I have the freedom to move the way I want to, eat the way that I want to, and live the way that I want to. I want to show my clients that fitness isn’t just about a number on a scale, the number of kilometers you can run, or even the amount of weight you can lift. Those numbers will come and go. Rather, fitness is about having the discipline to take care of your body and having the confidence in yourself and your abilities in your everyday life.
I have an intense desire to help people. I really care about my clients. Training allows me to help people in a variety of ways. I understand the mental and emotional side of fitness and want to show how fitness can affect not only your body, but almost every aspect of life.
I am always looking for ways to expand my knowledge. I love to learn – not just about things that will help me with my career – but anything that will help me grow and make me a better person today than I was yesterday. I like to test my limits and work to conquer my fears, so I am constantly trying out new ways to test my body and mind.
