Athletic training by Fitnastika Fitness, gymnasts from Cirque de Soleil

athletic training

We design programs and intensity for training based on on the athlete's specific needs and goals. Whether you are here for injury rehab, prevention or simply to improve your level in your sport, we help you take your performance to a new level.

Sergey and Corine are taking the Vancouver personal training and strength and conditioning to a new level. Their background in acrobatics coupled with their understanding of human movement cannot be replicated. Their athletic past was clearly driven through passion and dedication and I see this carry over in how they work with their clients.

Sports we work with


tennis-specific training programs
Tennis

Due to a single-side dominating character of the sport, our main goal is to help athletes maintain body balance and injury prevention of overused body parts & muscles. We use anti-rotational and stability exercises to achieve that, while guiding developing individual to the highest competitive level.

golf-specific training programs
golf

Golf is a single-side dominant sport and requires a lot of balance, rotational power and high concentration for long periods of time. Golf-specific training programs focus on strength of the back kinetic chain, as well as mobility of ankles, hip flexors, and T-spine. To prevent injuries we include anti-rotational exercises, shoulder stability and precision training.

hockey-specific training programs
hockey

Playing hockey requires a lot of power, body control, speed, strength and skills on the ice. During training sessions we not only work on athlete’s physical qualities, but also coach them to combine it all together and rationally use it in the gym and on the ice. We work to prevent overuse of hip flexors and lower back by keeping glutes and core active, and keeping lower extremities and T-spine mobile.

skating-specific training programs
Figure Skating

Figure skating is a complex, coordination- and aesthetics-oriented sport. The biggest challenge for an athlete is flexibility, great body control and high repetition ratio. It requires high-precision and physically demanding performance with ease and elegance. We help athletes maintain body balance, achieve understanding of body mechanics, strength and flexibility.

gymnastics-specific training programs
Gymnastics

As a sport gymnastics requires extensive body weight conditioning, hours at the gym, repetition and correct form. Our goal as trainer is to ensure movements are performed correctly and to help the athlete develop basic and specific strength, power, as well as to prevent injuries. We design training programs to focus on core stability, flexibility, shoulder stability, lower body power, and overall body mobility.

snowboarding-specific training programs
Snowboarding

Snowboarding is a unique and very un-intuitive sport that requires coordination, core strength, power, and enormous strength of the lower body. Snowboarding-specific training programs focus on the back kinetic chain, core stability, rotational and anti-rotational exercises, and mobility maintenance.

cycling-specific training programs
Cycling

Cycling is an endurance- and power-based sport with an abundance of repetitive movements. Most common overuse injuries include hip tightness and thoracic spine limitations due to the forward body positioning of bikers. Cycling-specific training programs focus on keeping the athlete's body mobile, strengthening the thoracic spine to alleviate neck and shoulder tension, as well as improving glutes to keep them functioning to their full potential while on the bike.

dance-specific training programs
Dancing

Beautiful elegant performance on stage requires flexibility, great body control and strength. Every dancer is different; some need more work on strength, some more work on flexibility, so we approach every athlete individually. However, overarching goal of every training program is ensuring that all body parts function to their full potential.

our roots


Fitnastika Fitness was founded in Vancouver by Corine Latreille and Sergey Nazarov back in 2013. Sergey and Corine met while they were both performing at Cirque de Soleil with an award-winning show Kooza.

Prior to their time at Cirque, Corine and Sergey had successful careers in artistic gymnastics and acro-sport, competing professionally in gymnastics in Canada and Russia, respectively. At the age of nineteen, Corine joined l’Ecole nationale de cirque in Montreal, majoring in acrobatic Hand to Hand with a minor in Handstands. One of her proudest moments was performing alongside Avril Lavigne at the closing ceremonies of the 2006 Torino Olympic Games. In turn, Sergey was an acro-sport National Team member and Captain for over 10 years. Sergey competed and became the winner of many international tournaments, world and continental championships.

Making Vancouver their home, Corine and Sergey wanted to share their passion for health and fitness with everyone. Their biggest joy is seeing people improve their lives through healthy diet and exercise, accomplish their goals and push the boundaries of their physical limitations.
