Sam currently works at a multi disciplinary clinic in downtown Calgary doing body composition analysis, rehabilitation, and mobility training. He also works out of a strength and conditioning centre where he focuses on strength, power and conditioning.
Once his patients achieve eighty percent functional capability, Sam targets their conditions with a unique strength training approach. He is a firm believer that strengthening the resiliency of soft tissue and joints will prevent or at the very least mitigate any potential injury, when the correct load/ tension is applied relative to the mechanics in your given sport.
Sam is the in-house orthopaedic consultant at his home club Alavancayyc/ ATOS Jiu- Jitsu. He is also the sport therapist for the Canadian Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation (CBJJF) during their big tournaments in Alberta.

My goal is to help and educate as many people as I can to make positive changes in their life. I strive to help clients incorporate what they learn throughout the program and apply it to their everyday life. I believe life is about learning and adapting – changing what you do in response to new or better information.
I believe that, to live life to the fullest includes feeling strong and healthy, regardless of injury. An active lifestyle is one of the best ways to live life feeling well and improving physical strength and overall mental and physical health. I will help you to push beyond your limits in a safe and healthy environment. I am here to guide you and teach you, and help you take your body through changes every step of the way.
