Kinetic Synergy has been the lifelong dream of founder Gavin Dobias. After graduating from Brock University in 2005 with a degree in Physical Education and starting a career as a personal trainer it didn’t take long for Gavin to realize that the current fitness model left many individuals coming to the gym day after day, year after year seeing little or no results. Working for as a personal trainer for “big box gyms” it also became very clear that personal training was more about sales than it was about results or relationships. He felt he could provide a better service so he opened a private personal training studio in his home in 2007. During that time Gavin started studying at the CHEK (Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology) Institute in Southern California and became certified as both a Holistic Lifestyle Coach and CHEK Practitioner. From the time Gavin opened his private studio he had aspirations to open a larger facility that could have a positive impact on more members of the community than he could in the one on one only environment. After 5 years of building his personal training business, developing a business plan and securing financing Kinetic Synergy was finally born in 2012!

We know how challenging and overwhelming it can be to get started with a new fitness program or make significant lifestyle changes. That’s why we provide support, motivation, and accountability in a friendly and non-judgemental environment that makes the process an enjoyable and enriching part of your life. Many of our clients refer to our encouraging and welcoming community as their “second home”. Our staff is a team of highly qualified, professionals with a passion for helping others with personal growth and improvement. Our success depends on your success, so we’ll do whatever it takes to help you succeed! If you’re ready to commit to yourself and you’re excited about becoming a better version of you, we invite you to take the first step by requesting a free consultation. It’s no risk, no obligation and it could be the start of something life changing! Your time is now! Book today!
