Don McKibbin

Although a civil engineer by profession, Don’s passion and lifestyle has always involved fitness and sports, from track/cross-country and numerous team sports in high school and university on to men’s rugby, basketball, volleyball, and even Canadian Nationals for Slo-pitch. As part of an active lifestyle, family time with his wife and two sons has included hiking, surfing, scuba-diving, mountain climbing, snow-shoeing, canoeing, and even family boot camps just to name a few “fun” family activities.

Don has been in the fitness industry for over 30 years now and believes in a total lifestyle approach to health and fitness including the often-neglected aspects of proper sleep and hydration. With a variety of YMCA, Manitoba Fitness Council (MFC), and Yogafit Canada certifications, he can provide clients with one-on-one or group programs at any level from beginner to expert, tailored specifically to personal client needs and goals. Don has extensive class and program experience including strength and resistance/boot camp/Interval/Kick-boxing/Sport conditioning/spinning (cycle)/ flexibility and balance/yoga, and also specialized Heart Rehabilitation classes through the Prairie-Mountain RHA.
