Rod is very skilled, and knowledgeable in various arts. He’s been training for a long time, has great teachers, and can perform on a level few others can.

I am a senior and find that I am welcomed along with all the regulars. My Trainer has built a program specific to my abilities but not allowing me to fall into habits that would not benefit my fitness routine.

I love Rod's women self defense classes! Only been going for a month but learnt so much so far and will be continuing indefinitely!

Rod Coulter is one of the top martial arts instructors in Canada. His style of teaching draws out the natural abilities in each individual student and they learn to personalize the art for themselves based on their own strengths and limitations. Rod is also able to blend many different styles into a cohesive system that shows the practical aspect of the different arts. The self defence aspect that he teaches is very applicable in the real world outside of a dojo. More...

I've been training in some form of martial arts or another for the past 15 years (mostly Kempo and Japanese Jiu Jitsu). Just when I started to think I knew a thing or two about the martial arts, I showed up at Coulter Martial Arts Academy and my world got much, much bigger. All of the instructors do a terrific job of finding their students' comfort zones and gently pushing them. Personally, my ability has improved immensely and in two years of training I have never been put in a situation where I was concerned for my safety.As a member of Natural Spirit International (an organization priding itself on taking important concepts from all traditional martial arts, boxing, and military combatives) since 1996, the Academy is dedicated finding the commonalities of movement and develop a system that works for the individual. Having been exposed to this method, I have been able to use the techniques in class to improve my prior training as well non-martial activities... all with very little modification. Topics/Concepts I've seen taught here Striking (punches, kicks, elbows and knees) Trapping/Joint-locking Throwing Weapons (including sticks, knives and staves) Body Movement Multiple Attackers Reality Based Self Defense More...

I registered for the women’s self defence classes last year and couldn’t wait until registration opened again for this year. Rod is extremely knowledgeable at what he does. His teaching skills are impeccable. He is an amazing instructor, his patience and cueing are unlike anyone I have worked with before. I found the classes beneficial in not only the area of defence but teaching discipline, respect and more importantly empowerment. I would highly recommend this class. The movements are specific to individuals skill levels and he allows for growth in all aspects of his teaching whether your advanced or new to this type of skill development. Having strength is one thing however adding situational awareness to your arsenal of defence is a completely different focus that I believe all females should have the power and knowledge to do so. I wouldn’t take the risk not knowing this skill, too late is too late. No harm can come from learning something valuable although deep down you hope you should never have to use but at least you’ll have the basic foundations that could seriously protect you if you were ever caught in a life threatening situation.

I've been training martial arts with Rod for many years now and it's been a very fulfilling and enriching part of my life. He and Brenda are both excellent strength and fitness coaches as well; if you are looking to get into or improve your fitness or want to try martial arts in a "no judgements, any skill level welcome" environment there is no better place.

Rod is fantastic, he will craft a plan specific to your goals and help with nutrition too! I found Rod after years of mucking around with cookie cutter training programs at the big gyms and this is sure not that! Working out at King's Fitness is awesome, everyone is super nice and all shapes, sizes, and ages are welcome. It's not a meat market gym so no need for a perfect blowout and a strong selfie game either. Lots of fun, laughs, and sweat!! And a rad gym dog named Kilo too! More...

Personal trainers Rod and Brenda Coulter at the 'Evolution Personal Training' studio on Manchester Road are both inspirational and committed to my physical, mental & wellness success! They treat me not only as a client, but also as a family friend and life couch. Without their sound knowledge, compassion, encouragement and support, I could not have achieved the result as desired thus far. Keep up the great work Rod & Brenda! U guys rock!!! More...

Wether your training for a competition or just trying to lose some weight for the summer, Evolution Personal Training can help you reach your goals! I’ve been with them for 3 years now, and have been in 10 physique competitions and won most of them. The training and nutrition program they offer is so easy to follow, especially when you have the personal support and regular check-ins make such a difference! Highly recommended!

I’ve been training with Brenda for a few years and seeing her on a regular basis is what keeps me in check. She takes more of a hollistic approach and has educated me along the way. She offers programs for every budget and training never gets boring or repetitive. I’m always trying new things and she switches it up depending on my current goals. Most importantly she is my cheerleader and if you trust in her and the process you won’t be disappointed. More...

Brenda and Rod are amazing! Some trainers are one dimensional and it's hard to achieve your goals when you are referred out for other needs. With Brenda and Rod, everything you need from training to nutrition to comp prep, you have it at one location. Whether you are a beginner or seasoned athlete, you will benefit from their expertise. P.S. Rod is a ninja! Ask him about his classes too. More...

I trained with Rod and he kicked my butt every time and I appreciated it so much. I hit all my goals and got ripped and got into the best condition of my life. The knowledge Rod possesses in all facets of his work is amazing. From all the techniques he has at his disposal to the nutritional knowledge for each body type is nothing less than amazing. If you want a life altering experience train with Rod Coulter and you will be successful at whatever you are hoping to achieve. More...

I first met Rod on a film set and have been fortunate to work with him a few times on various productions. I started to train with Rod after seeing him perform stunts for some of the shows we work on and wanting to be a stunt performer myself. Rod is an excellent teacher, he is very knowledgeable and capable, and he also is highly respected in the film, martial arts, and personal training communities because of his extensive experience/capability and his professionalism. He is very good at tailoring a program to fit your specific needs and goals. I would highly recommend Evolution Personal Training to get the results you want!Darren GrossActor More...

With Rod there is an honesty and exceptionally high level of expertise that I found allowed me to buy into his system right away. He lives what he teaches, and his focus, integrity, and dedication to his own values make him a great role model. The workouts are the highlight of my week, and the transformation I've undergone has been life altering. My only regret is that I'm not there every day. More...

I have had the privilege of having Brenda as coach for over 5 years. I originally met her when I had decided after a serious soccer injury and a larger amount of weight gain to final get into shape. I had competed naturally as a bodybuilder in 1997 and gave myself the goal of competing again to get myself in great shape. My starting weight was 236lbs and after 20 weeks of rigorous training, fine tuned diet plan and hours of posing I had lost 62lbs. I cannot say enough about her knowledge and her ability to push you to limits that I did not think where possible. This journey has transformed my life and over the last five years I have won 3 masters bodybuilding competitions, 1 overall championship, 3 men’s open bodybuilding competitions, two 2nd place finishes in men’s open physique and two years ago won my NPAA natural bodybuilding Pro card. If you are looking to transform your body, health and overall outlook on life look no further, start now reap the rewards living a healthy lifestyle has to offer and with Brenda and Evolutions help success is in your grasp!!! Sincerely,Phil Mateshaytis. More...

In 2013, I undertook a journey to find a school a new school. The destination was a small school, with an exceptional owner, Rod Coulter. Rod has extensive training in a variety of martial arts – Kempo,, Ninjutsu, JKD and NSI to name a few. There is no question he is a knowledgeable and talented martial artist. What drew me to Rod, is his level of commitment to a progressive system called NSI. Rod is certified under Datu Kelly Worden. Rod is able to take traditional martial arts, and utilizing NSI concepts, allow a student to orientate around universal patterns that can be applied with little variation to knife, stick or unarmed. Rod is skilled in various ranges and weapons including : Staff, Stick, Knife , and standup grappling . If you are starting or a long term student of the martial arts, I recommend you treat yourself by touching hands with Rod. His approach will raise your enthusiasm to continue your study in the arts. What Rod teaches makes sense. Quinn Kramer. More...
