About Kirsten

Kirsten Gallagher is one of the most well-rounded fitness professionals currently working in the Toronto area. She’s a canfitpro PRO TRAINER, Healthy Eating and Weight Loss (HWL) Coach, Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT™) Jumpstart Practitioner and one of the few people worldwide who’ve earned a Resistance Training Specialist (RTS®) Mastery Level designation.

Kirsten has spent over 20 years in the industry and grown a nerdy enthusiasm for biomechanics which helps her take a considered approach to each client she works with. Her approach is not only to offer an incredible personal training or coaching experience but to also educate and empower her clients by talking them through technique and showing them what they can do on their own.

In addition to her time in the gym, Kirsten has presented her innovative ideas on fitness, weight loss and healthy living at numerous events and contributed to local publications such as Tonic Toronto and Healthy Directions. She’s currently an instructor for canfitpro, teaching a course called Healthy Eating and Weight Loss Coach (HWL), and a freelance consultant for various gyms throughout Toronto.
