Every time that I'm able to learn from Owen, I always walk away feeling much richer for it! During this weekend's bodyweight workshop, he teased out many critical essential aspects and tweaks of all the movements (even in supposedly familiar basics like the hardstyle plank), and patiently helped us all find the right progressions for our individual levels that we're at right NOW.

I'm looking forward to implementing everything! Thank you.

I am so incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Owen numerous times over the last few years. I originally met Owen at his facility AMPFit during my first attempt at acquiring my SFG-1 certification back in 2016. I found his skill level, professionalism, and supportive nature to be of the highest caliber. Though my first attempt was unsuccessful, his coaching, support and encouragement strongly motivated me to continue the course which I can proudly say was essential toward not only achieving the SFG-1 but also my SFG-2. More recently, I received coaching from Owen while recovering from an unfortunate lower back injury. His knowledge and exceptional coaching allowed me to continue progressing toward my SFL goal by working within my means but also most importantly, by rebuilding my confidence which had suffered a significant blow. Everything about my experiences with Owen have been first-rate and if you happen to find yourself seriously contemplating coaching, you would be doing yourself a disservice by not reaching out to him.

I can only say that my one-on-one KB training session with Owen was absolutely awesome!
The instruction that I received was clear, easy to understand and apply, great cues on how to get a feel for what he was asking me to do differently. I feel that I am now equipped with an abundance of input to make my training at home so much more successful and useful - not only when it comes to gaining more strength, but also for my health. To me, this consultation with Owen was more valuable than what I could have gotten from a visit with a health professional - his knowledge about strength, correct movement patterns and how to apply those in real-life-situations is already helping me to reduce the wear and tear on my body while doing physical labor jobs.
So, I cannot recommend Owen enough and the moment I can make it happen, I will be back for more!

As a fellow SFG in Western Canada, I've known Owen for a few years now and I look up to him very much. He is the epitome of a quiet professional. He is incredibly humble, despite being freakishly strong. I hired him for online coaching last year and had a great experience, he was tremendously through, communicated well, and I got great results. I particularly enjoy assisting alongside him, as a coach I learn a lot from his calm, minimalist, and effective cueing. I plan on hiring him again, and can't recommend him enough.
