Fitness Trainer

Cory Maystrowich

Cory is from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and is the first trainer in Western Canada to achieve full certification with Gym Jones. He is the principal of Trigger It Personal Training, and is a Certified Fitness Trainer and Youth Fitness Trainer. He is also a Specialist in Fitness Nutrition and specializes in one-on-one, small group, and corporate training.

Born and raised on a farm in rural Canada, Cory learned the values of hard work, ambition, integrity and teamwork from an early age. One of his first introductions into an active lifestyle was learning how to skate and play hockey by the age of four. When he wasn't playing competitive hockey, he was playing football and baseball, and was actively involved in skiing. At the age of sixteen, Cory suffered a major accident that nearly paralyzed him and almost took his life. Since that time, he had to deal with weight gain and weight loss as well as the side effects of other physical and psychological effects of such an injury.

He is currently an avid and competitive runner of marathons, half marathons, 10k, 5k, adventure, and obstacle races. For the past six years, Cory has been competing in races in North America, as well as training others to get faster and stronger.

Cory's training and programming is directly influenced by his experience at Gym Jones. After fully applying the GJ training philosophies and theories, he has a passion for teaching and training individuals who are like minded and have the same belief.

One of the biggest lessons he has learned is to never give up; "BE committed to DO what it takes, to HAVE what you want" in all areas of one's life.
