Working with Roberto as my personal trainer has been a transformative experience during my darkest times. His dedication to not only physical training but also life coaching has had a profound impact on my well-being.

Roberto's training methods are exceptional, tailored to my needs and goals while ensuring safety and progress. His team reflects his professionalism and expertise, creating a supportive environment for growth.

Beyond the gym, Roberto's life coaching sessions have been invaluable. His insights and encouragement have helped me navigate challenges and develop a positive mindset, leading to lasting change.

Thanks to Roberto, I've emerged stronger, both physically and mentally. He has truly changed my life for the better.

Hi Roberto. I have to tell you how happy I am with my results since I’ve been working with you. For 20 plus years I have been working out with different trainers but I have never had the results like with you. Last night was the real test. Reaching my goal with you is more important than a night partying. That’s a huge win for me so thank you. See you Tuesday. 🙏💪💕 More...

Roberto has shown me that not only is it possible to feel energized and loose the extra weight I gained with COVID, but also better understand my metabolism and how to optimize it. Hansley has been a tremendous help and motivation at the gym and the explanations he provides are very insightful and adapted to my more beginner level. All in all would recommend if you are ready for a healthier life! More...

Roberto and his team are great!

We train together at least twice a week for an hour. He takes time to ensure I'm reaching my fitness goals and protecting myself against injuries. He caters the training to my sports goals.

He's also got a solid nutrition plan that I've used to lose weight and improve my energy.

The training studios have all been well placed and well equipped!

First, we increase the density of mithocondria within ones cells through strength training. Second, we teach one how to eat to feed their mithocondria, to have more energy, motivation, consistency and results and to help one create an optimal life experience.

1. Strength Train to increase the density of your mitochondria by doing at least 2-3 proper strength training per week
2. Autophagy
Autophagy is the body’s way of cleaning out damaged cells, in order to regenerate newer, healthier cells, according to Priya Khorana, PhD, in nutrition education from Columbia University.

“Auto” means self and “phagy” means eat. So the literal meaning of autophagy is “self-eating.”

It’s also referred to as “self-devouring.” While that may sound like something you never want to happen to your body, it’s actually beneficial to your overall health.

This is because autophagy is an evolutionary self-preservation mechanism through which the body can remove the dysfunctional cells and recycle parts of them toward cellular repair and cleaning, according to board-certified cardiologist, Dr. Luiza Petre.

Petre explains that the purpose of autophagy is to remove debris and self-regulate back to optimal smooth function.

“It is recycling and cleaning at the same time, just like hitting a reset button to your body. Plus, it promotes survival and adaptation as a response to various stressors and toxins accumulated in our cells,” she adds.

3. Follow the Diamond Rule of Gut Health

The most powerful indicator of a healthy gut is the diversity of plants in your diet, which makes complete sense. When you eat a more diverse diet, you can get all of these different types of fiber from each type of plant. And that diversity within the diet translates into biodiversity within the microbiome. So that's one of the fundamental concepts we need to follow
4. Eat vitamins A, B, C and K in your diet throught the consumption of Aggregate Nutrient Dense food such as leafy greens
5. Eat lots of Antioxidants food such as colourful fruits and vegtables as well as glutathione producing foods such as the cabbage, muschroom and onion family
6. Eat protein that contain a full range of amino acids.
7. Limit the consuption of carbohydrates if need be
8. Eliminate certain proteins that can create disbyosis such as Casein and Gluten
9. Get to bed by 10:30pm at least 5 out of 7 nights per week
10. Eat food that taste good and are good for you through the addition of herbs and spices that do not contain food additives and immulsifiers.i

I love seeing the people I train transform their bodies and lives. The thing I love the most about my work i can’t get enough of It. I always want to learn more. And I love when the people I train come and see me to tell me how much better they feel and how amazed they are about how they’ve progressed. It always put a smile on my face and make me profoundly happy.

From Personal Triumph to Personal Training


Starnino had it all — a beautiful girlfriend, a promising football career and a job training people at one of Montreal’s most beautiful health and fitness club. Then the unthinkable happened. During the last practice at training camp before turning pro, Starnino suffered a stroke.


Hemi-paralyzed and bed ridden for almost two months at the Montreal Neurological Institute’s intensive care unit, Starnino lost his career, his friends, his girl and his dream. The depression was just as crippling as the stroke. Starnino was grief stricken, a broken man.

One day Starnino observed an elderly patient who also suffered from hemi-paralysis. The old man was sitting up in a chair and was gamely trying to feed himself. With newfound resolve, Starnino began to move... to will his body to comply. At that moment, Starnino decided he would overcome his accident.


Starnino studied all there was to read in the field of health and performance during his two years of intensive rehabilitation. He immersed himself in the literature, quickly identifying the shortcomings of traditional medicine. These shortcomings were a revelation, leading to his dream.

Starnino became his own trainer, using his newfound knowledge to create a highly specialized approach to healthcare. His miraculous recovery from the stroke further encouraged Starnino to pursue his dream in this field.

Because I get the results people want each and every time safely and securely with out fail.



Our Inside-Out approach starts with the proper management of the pelvis through the optimal function and balance of the abdominal wall, hip flexors, lower back and the hip extension mechanism.

Using isolation-type movement to strengthen and stabilize the hips, spine and shoulders, we create intramuscular coordination by strengthening, lengthening and balancing the musculature in and around these areas.

Then we use functional and dynamic movement to integrate one’s upper and lower body to create intermuscular coordination, which results in better performance of daily and/or sport-specific activities.


With the help of naturopathy and Metabolic Typing, our trainers help one to choose the ideal foods and the ideal macronutrient ratios to suit their individual biochemical and physiological needs.
