ABOUT: Joie De Vivre

THE MAN BEHIND JOIE DE VIVRE

I would like to introduce myself to you - I am Antonio Fongang and I am the owner and operator of Joie de vivre Fitness and Training. I am a Certified Personal Trainer Specialist; Certified in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Timeline Therapy, and Hypnosis; Certified Nutrition and Wellness Specialist; Crossfit Trainer L1; Second Degree Black Belt in Karate Shotokan; a former professional soccer player as well as a strength and conditioning coach. This year, I was also honoured to be nominated as one of Canada's Top 10 Trainers. 

As a professional soccer player, I played in several countries such as France, Switzerland, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. As a trainer, I have trained high profile professional soccer players and teams, throughout the world, as a strength and conditioning coach. I also have a Pharmacy Technician Diploma.

As a coach, I want to inspire, motivate, and support the will inside every client to achieve a permanent lifestyle through a positive mindset, regular exercise, and healthy nutrition. I also want to help clients exceed their own expectations about what they can achieve.

As a coach, I strongly believe that every individual is capable of attaining their optimum physical condition, if made aware of their potential and how to achieve it. Throughout my career, I have encountered people of all ages and conditions who have accomplished things they never thought possible. No, we don’t all have the genetics of a super model or elite athlete, but everyone can improve on what they have and reach their full potential.

I also think of every client as an extension of myself, and hold both myself and my clients accountable for the success of our training relationship. For that reason, I prefer to work with people who are as committed as I am.

My philosophy focuses on continual lifelong learning as I work towards enhancing the well-being of my clients by empowering them with the knowledge, skill, support, guidance and resources to assist and inspire them on their journeys to a healthier life.

UNDER 18 WOOLWICH SOCCER TEAM

Antonio provided pre-season dryland conditioning sessions for our girls soccer team for two consecutive seasons. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the training and it reduced the risk of injury. The girls strengthened their muscles and greatly increased their endurance resulting in very positive results on and off the field. I would highly recommend to any team looking for conditioning/strengthening sessions

DAVE

I have been working out with Antonio for a short 2 months and the changes I have seen already are amazing! I am getting healthier and stronger and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

He motivates me to realize my potential and to accept all the small changes. His extensive knowledge and enthusiasm really shine through. He is able to individualize each session to keep them interesting and challenging and not boring.

Antonio’s professionalism, extensive knowledge and enthusiasm provides you with the perfect recipe for success towards a healthier YOU. If you really want to change your life for the better, Antonio will be there for you.

CARL

Antonio is a dedicated and knowledgeable trainer who individually tailors my workouts. He is very motivating without being aggressive. He is an easy going and likable person who makes me look forward to working out. I highly recommend Antonio as a personal trainer.

HULYA

I first came to Antonio because I was losing interest and motivation in my workouts and was desperate for improving my running time and technique. Simply put I needed help to bring myself to the next level, which I never knew I could actually achieve.

He is professional, engaging and will structure a program to achieve your individual goals. If you bring some energy, enthusiasm and commitment you will, with this man, be fitter, stronger and approach your sessions in the gym with a greater sense of purpose and belief.

After just having six sessions with Antonio, he has helped me bring a new enthusiasm and extreme variety to my workouts. I have incredible energy, my balance and flexibility have improved, and I can see the changes,and now I’m addicted!

If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Antonio will lead you every step of the way. I will forever be thankful to Antonio for helping me discover the athlete in me that I never knew existed.

CAROL

II’ve been training with Antonio for many months and I’ve never felt better. I can see improvement in my fitness and energy levels. No matter what your personal fitness level, Antonio believes you can succeed.

Antonio gives you personal attention to make sure you are using proper form and stretching techniques so you get the most out of your work out. If I have injured myself, Antonio is excellent at providing and alternate or modified workout. This allows me to continue making progress during my workout without compromising my health.

ALLISON 

 

I started training with Antonio to lose some of the stubborn fat around my middle and generally tone up. What I achieved with Antonio help was far more than this!

Using various strength training techniques and exercises, my overall strength and fitness improved so much in a short space of time that I was able to perform exercises I would have never attempted on my own. Each workout is tailored to you, so you can achieve exactly what you have discussed. 

I have learnt so much from Antonio, he is willing to share his expert knowledge and answer any questions you come up with. His tips on nutrition are excellent and his dedication is clear.

Antonio is energetic, fun, committed and inspirational...and I can't recommend him enough!
