Ayurveda Yoga teaches how to keep the physical body healthy. This practice, through different poses can stimulate muscles and release tension in the body. Ayurvedic exercise is ideal for rejuvenation of the body, improving digestion and removing stress. Ayurveda is a holistic approach to healthcare that helps people live a balanced life. About Lisa Macintyre: I have been a body builder for 20 years, I love the industry and the energy! I have been training and coaching people to live a better, healthier quality of life. I competed in 2004, and 2005. I achieved top 10 both times out of 65 girl in figure. Muscle and strength intrigues me, and I love to experience others transform their life style. For the last 5 years I have studied and practiced yoga. This last year I discovered ayurvedic yoga and took my training at sacred seed yoga. Through this practice people can connect the body, mind and spirit.
Growing up I was involved in many different competitive sports and recreational activities. In high school I started to get into the gym and work a bit on my fitness however it was not until university that I started to love lifting. In 2017 I joined a powerlifting team in Edmonton and won gold medals in my first two meets. In May 2018 I was invited to the Canadian Elite Championships for 100% Raw Federation and finished with a 3rd place bronze making me 3/3 medaling in all competitions I have entered so far. In June 2018 I decided to expand and grow my business rebranding my personal training to AG Strength and Conditioning. Accomplishing feats and goals puts a sense of pride into an individual and my goal is to have you feeling as proud as possible by aiding you toward conquering those goals.
I started playing sports at the age of nine, which spawned a life long love of physical fitness. From competitive soccer and ringette, to rugby, long distance running and most recently obstacle course racing (where I represented Canada at the 2017 World Championships), I have developed a wide range of skills and experiences which I draw upon to help my clients find their own passion for health and well-being. With a Bachelor's Degree in psychology, coupled with my certifications in Personal Training and Group Fitness Instruction, I love to work with a wide array of clientele. So whether you are just starting out, looking to lose weight, tone up or train for a specific sport or agility training, I would love to be apart of your journey.
My love of health and fitness began at a very young age. I was always active and loved playing hockey and football. At some point in there I decided I wanted to be a Bodybuilder. Fast forward to 2017 when I entered my first competition and I was hooked. I went on to compete in the Edmonton CPA Championships and the Vancouver Pro/Am in 2018. Since then I have been working towards the Vancouver Pro/Am 2019 and my Personal Training Certificate through the International Sports Sciences Association. My own journey has brought me from being the skinniest guy in the room to who I am now and taught me invaluable lessons. Now teaching people and helping them unlock their full potential has become my passion. I use a wide variety of techniques to achieve the maximum benefit from every workout and inform every step of the way.
My own fitness journey is what drove me to take the leap to becoming a Personal Trainer. I was working in the oil field. The long days, stress, and lifestyle started to take its toll on me. My joints were aching, the weight was piling on quickly, and my mental state was in shambles. That’s when I turned to fitness, I hired a trainer to help me hit the ground running and I haven’t stopped. Physical fitness, health, and wellbeing quickly became a passion of mine. Now I put all my experience and my Canfitpro Personal Training Specialist Certification to work helping other people get themselves back too. Whether its working out with me in the gym, having a program to do on your own, or a mixture of both. I tailor all plans to fit your goals, fitness level, schedule, and available equipment so that you can stay motivated and be successful.
I grew up playing various sports (mostly hockey) but was always a chubby kid. I had just accepted that it was genetics or whatever excuse I could think of. My own fitness journey is what got me passionate about fitness and interested in personal training. I started out by simply going to the gym more routinely, then I got my own trainer and in a little, over a year I had lost 55 pounds. And it wasn’t just the weight, I was saving money, I felt better, slept better, and just made better life choices. This feeling is what got me addicted, and I wanted to share it with other people. So I went to school for personal training, got my diploma and ACE Certification, and didn’t stop there. I specialize in weight loss, sports performance, pre/postnatal, and group training. I spend my hockey season training the PAC Saints minor hockey teams, I also train clients out of their home gyms and now I am available to you at Chop Shop Physiques!

Like many others, I struggled with my weight for a lot of my adult life. I really struggled in finding the right program to help me get from point A to point B. I would try crash diets and those trending “lose weight fast” schemes, only to be left feeling disappointed and unwell. Ultimately, this downward spiral lead to many years of insecurity, anxiety, and depression. One day I decided that I’d just had enough of feeling so horrible, inside & out. I decided to commit; to get out of my comfort zone! I started to make healthier choices. I got a gym membership and booked a consultation with a personal trainer. I started to think about how I could help others, and with the encouragement, I started on my own educational journey with the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) and became a certified personal trainer (CPT). My experience and passion for health & fitness drive me to help others find their motivation, meet their goals, and feel their best!
