Ervin Caranto

Born and raised in Montreal. Ever since he was young, he has been very passionate and competitive in sports such as track and field, martial arts and fitness which fuelled and developed the love he has for strength and conditioning in all its forms. Throughout his teen years, he discovered hip hop (specifically break dancing) and participated in local and major competitions.

By his late teen years, he started to spend countless hours in the weight room experimenting various training methods and this is where he found his passion. He started then seeing results on himself, which led him to create programs for friends in order to help them achieve their own fitness goals.

By his early 20’s, he obtained his certification as a personal trainer and started his career at the YMCA. Soon after that, he discovered functional fitness and Olympic lifting. In 2014, he participated in his first weight lifting competition and placed third overall.

Soon after that he pursued to attain his functional fitness certification and began teaching and preaching the benefits of functional fitness in group classes.

his motto is to constantly strive to be the best one can be without letting the ego get in the way. His way of teaching is through proper technique and understanding certain movements are performed the way they are ignored to understand the mechanics behind it. Furthermore, don’t perceive the gym as a task, rather think of it as an adult playground. And most importantly, HAVE FUN!
