Since a very young age, Curtis has been intrigued by the “behind the scenes” training and preparation required for sports and athletics. When he was required to undergo his own rehabilitation from a shoulder injury, he was further driven to pursue a career in Kinesiology. He received his Bachelor of Science (Kinesiology) from Simon Fraser University in 2013. While at SFU, he also earned his Applied Human Nutrition Certificate and Health & Fitness Certificate.
Prior to joining Symmetrix in 2015, Curtis gained two years of experience working for a lower mainland rehabilitation company as a Kinesiologist. In this role he worked primarily with ICBC clients; conducting assessments, writing reports, designing and delivering active rehab programs and coordinating gradual return to work programs. Curtis also has previous experience leading group active rehab programs, including OR programs. In addition to working with us at Symmetrix, Curtis also works with a spinal cord injury clinic providing exercise rehabilitation to para and quadriplegics.
Curtis is an avid baseball player and is active both as an athlete and as a youth coach. Curtis played for the BC Junior League, the U21 Provincial Team and for Douglas College while attending university. Since 2012 he has coached and trained youth for a variety of organizations and teams. He is currently a pitching and strength coach for the Tri-City Indians Midget AAA baseball team and runs youth clinics through the Bullpen Baseball School. He truly enjoys working with youth to develop fundamental movement skills as well as mentoring in the areas of teamwork: encouraging respect, responsibility and friendly competition.
When not playing or coaching baseball, you will find Curtis in the gym weight lifting or outside hiking and canoeing. He is a major sports fan and loves to travel the world. Curtis’ experience with coaching & sport, along with his own athletic background, combine for a precise, challenging training style. His calm and focused energy is appealing to all clients; whether recovering from injury or working to reach peak athletic performance.
