I have known Travis for three-plus years now. He has been working with my wife and some of her friends for that time. I cannot thank him enough for all he's done. It's nice to see somebody who talks the talk actually walk the walk. He is very professional and considers his clients as part of his extended family.If there's anyone out there who is considering a change in their lifestyle, I would not hesitate in the least to refer Travis Wade to be your fitness coach. Don't believe me, ask my wife. More...

I've been training with Travis for a few months now. One thing in particular that has stood out to me is that he genuinely cares; he is truly invested in helping assist his clients achieve their fitness and lifestyle goals. In addition to having been a personal trainer for many years, his longstanding career as an EMT has certainly benefited him well and enhanced his knowledge of the body, strains, and working with injury. His session exercises are specifically chosen to maximize results but if you need an alternative exercise or one to be modified he has the know-how. Whether you're a serious lifter or out-of-shape beginner, he has the knowledge, experience, and dedication to get you on the right path. I believe it's because of the above that he has come to build a small community of sorts amongst his clients. When I first started training with Travis, I was introduced to several other female clients and each one was not only inspirational in how far they've come in their fitness journeys, but they had also formed friendships with one another and train together often. Their invitations to train with them outside of my sessions helped to reduce my gym anxiety and support the building of confidence from which Travis helped me to re-establish. Lastly, Travis practices his own advice, and I think that's one of the best things any professional can do. He believes that fitness and health is a lifestyle, and doesn't end outside of the gym. Diet, sleep, life stresses, and work all contribute to one's overall physical (and mental) health. Travis encourages his clients to make themselves a priority and give their body and mind the self-care that is necessary in order to not only be healthy, but genuinely happy as well. I could not imagine a more wonderful trainer to have started my gym and fitness journey with. To anyone that is considering whether or not you should do this, my advice is to just go for it: you deserve to be the best version of yourself possible and to have a supportive, knowledgeable, and experienced professional alongside you in the process. That professional is Travis :) More...

I have been with Travis for about a year and half now. He is awesome and caring. I have type 1 diabetes and he has been working with me on gettig my blood sugars stablized with diet and exercise. His knowledge and encouragement are amazing. I recommend Travis Wade Fitness to my friends and everyone. You won't find a better and more supportive trainer than Travis. More...

The process of healing the self, whether physical, emotional, or both, is less daunting with the support of a few trusted people around us. Travis has become one of those people for me. He is intuitive about people and uses this to find creative ways to draw out his clients onto paths towards better health. I am grateful for the small progressions we’ve made already and I look forward to so much more. I am admittedly not the easiest client to work with, but I am getting into the groove. Some people, like me, are a bit afraid to jump all in. But I think that fear does go away.Travis is a person who conveys hope — nothing could be more important in encouraging people to embrace a healing journey, whatever that might look like. He is one of those rare human beings who genuinely cares about others. He has finessed the balance between being encouraging and challenging; this is not easy (especially with a sensitive type like me!). Working with you, Travis, is a gift. Thank you. More...

I started with Travis a few months ago. He has been very supportive and knowledgeable all through this fitness journey so far. It is great to have someone you can reach out to with any questions regarding working out and nutrition. More...

I met Travis the first time at world health when I had social anxiety. It took me a week of drive byes to enter a gym. From that point Travis inspired me to become healthy and fit. The thing I admire most about Travis, is his passion for health and wanting to help others. He is constantly researching and improving himself. I love that ! This is why I chose him as my trainer. If you want someone to educate, inspire, laugh, and hold you accountable then he is your trainer too!!! More...

Travis is amazing; I really hadn’t been to a gym before and he made it accessible for me. I am down 15 kgs and well on my way to reaching my fitness goals. He is a great motivator and I look forward to working out now. More...

Anyone who knows me, knows I have always been able to loose weight but I always give up and it comes right back. I made the decision it was time to do it an loose it for good. I knew I needed help and the opportunity to work with Travis presented itself to me. My husband was going to meet him and I asked if I could join the appointment. Travis was more than willing and happy to have me be there. I started working with Travis on September 15, 2018. It was the best decision I could have made. His passion to help others shines through. He is very knowledgable in both the nutrition and exercise. He always takes time to answer questions, even when you are not in a session with him. Believe me, I ask him a lot of questions. He has never once ignored them. He encourages you to do better than you think you can. That is exactly what I need. I owe him so much appreciation and am grateful for everything he has done for me so far. I would recommend, and have recommended, him to anyone who will listen. I can't wait to see what else he can do for me. We have just gotten started. You rock Travis!!!!! More...

I’m a very private person. Anyone who knows me is really surprised right now that I posted this. I’m just very proud of myself. I bought jeans I haven’t been able to fit in for years (see right picture) I’ve worked very hard the last 8 months. I’m not where I want to be but I’m definitely getting closer. I didn’t do this all on my own. I did the best thing I could possibly do for myself. I hired a personal trainer. I’ve noticed a difference in my body since training with Travis. I have more energy, little muscles I never had before and the shape of my body is changing. I highly recommend him, he’s amazing at what he does. I can’t wait to see what my future holds for me! I’m loving life More...

Travis has been training me now since May 2018. He has eased me into strength training at my own pace as I requested. I found it intimidating to start on my own, so his support and positive attitude have helped me into this new-to-me lifestyle. I was looking to learn proper form and how to lift properly. I can feel the overall difference in strength in my body. Its a great feeling to have improved my balance and control over my body. My body has more muscle too. I feel an immediate improvement in my mental well being after a single session. He has introduced me to some wonderful people through these sessions who are just like me. Down to earth, happy people who value healthy lifestyles. I cannot praise the benefits of strength training enough and I encourage you, especially if you are a beginner, to reach out to Travis for guidance. Money well spent.--- Bernadine Grant More...

Travis is the bomb. When I came to him, I was out of shape and overweight, and had never really worked out in a gym before. He's helped me to not only feel comfortable and confident with working out, but because of him I am eating healthy for life and am far better informed about making healthy choices. He's a load of fun too, and always super positive. His back story is incredible, make sure you ask him about it! I look forward to our sessions and know that if I hadn't met him, I would have never had the success that I've had. More...

Travis is not your average personal trainer-he is exceptional. He will motivate you, make you accountable, encourage you and be a wealth of knowledge about diet, health, and effective exercises. So if you are serious about being fit and healthy then call Travis. More...

Highly recommend Travis. I have spent several months talking with Travis about fitness and nutrition and have taken his advice on both. Travis truly cares about your journey you wish to pursue, whether its getting into shape, competing for a competition or just to get you motivated to move. There is no judgment, only motivation when you work with him. As he always says "we are stronger together" so get motivated and give Travis the opportunity to show you what he can do. More...

Q&A

We focus on safety first and use the most effective exercises with a precise exercise plan for each individual. Diet is key and I start everyone with clean eating then teach people all about different aspects of different diet plans.

The secret is learning how to manipulate your hormones. Diet and exercise produce the hormones you want and reduce the ones you don’t want. Hormones depict how your body looks and how it performs. The secret is there are a lot of hormone disrupters in our society. We need to address that as well.

I’m really good at it and I love seeing the results that come!!

I was working EMS and could only take people to the hospital on a regular basis. I didn’t feel like I was really helping much. I needed to switch careers and get to people before they are on a stretcher.

I am the best and I get results. I’m much more than just a personal trainer. Personal trainers will focus on exercise and some will even help with diet but I go way beyond just that. There’s a lot more to it than meets the eye.
