About Brent LohmerHead Trainer at Fitness Revolution
Meet Brent Lohmer
Like most kids in rural Manitoba, I grew up playing hockey and baseball, competing in track and field and skateboarding.
When I was twelve, I realized I could improve my sports performance by working out. It was right then, in my parents’ basement with a set of Weider dumbbells and some Kathy Ireland ankle weights, that my love of fitness was born.
I decided I would become a fitness coach when I grew up.
I’m not sure my parents liked that idea though since coaching isn’t the most secure or stable of jobs.
So I changed my approach.
I told them I’d become a physiotherapist and just moonlight as a fitness coach.
But of course, I’d actually just become a coach.
That was the plan.
From then on I went about my education geeking out about the human body, studying everything there was to know about muscles, energy systems, and nutritional biochemistry.
The more I learned the more enthusiastic I got.
I loved it!
Looking back, I think I learned the most from my grade 11 biology teacher, Mr. G.
He was one of those guys who was a hard-ass on the surface, but in his heart just wanted to push you to achieve your full potential. Well, he definitely pushed the hell out of me. I learned more about the human body in grade 11 than I did in my first two years of university.
It was around this time in my life that I went down a deep, dark alley of my own personal journey with health and fitness. I struggled with an exercise addiction and disordered eating.
After coming out of this ordeal, I needed to learn how to do things properly in order to gain back the weight and the performance that I had lost.
I was committed to learning all of the best strategies to gain muscle, gain strength, increase power, increase speed, increase quickness and ultimately increase performance.
After getting a degree in kinesiology from the UW and a certification as Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), I dove in deep working with high-performance athletes at Sport Manitoba.
In a span of 5 years, I worked with over 500 athletes.
Those were some of the best years of my life so far.
And it was an incredible stomping ground for learning how to coach HP athletes,
but something was missing.
I believe in integration and coordination of the athletic experience.
The unfortunate thing about youth high-performance sport is that there are a ton of cooks in the kitchen.
Kids have numerous coaches,
and integration and coordination among them is a battle.
And guess who suffers?
So I set out on a quest to provide this optimal athletic experience.
And by some stroke of serendipity, this actually led me adult athletes.
Former athletes that had let themselves go a bit,
that sat on the sidelines and watched their kids play,
that knew how to take care of themselves but just didn’t have that athletic presence in their life to get motivated to do so.
This is where I wanted to make my influence,
where I will implement a seamless integrated athletic experience in the service of adult athletes getting back into shape,
dropping a few pounds,
getting some purpose and meaning out of their training and
putting themselves back into a life of
passion and energy.
What we offer is the best of all worlds.
The best coaches,
The best tactics,
and the best strategies
all integrated into one seamless package.
All working together to make you a rockstar athlete again.
If you’re a former athlete, It’s just the best possible program you can imagine to up your performance and your life to the next level.
