Jim Blair, PTS, PN1, FRCms

Master Trainer & Nutritionist 

My passion for fitness started more than 20 years ago when I joined GoodLife. Like most first-timers, I did not have a plan in place. After years with minimal results, I started adding other activities into my skillset. My first competition was a duathlon. I placed 10th out of 150 athletes: 4th in my age group. This lit the fire for me, and I started winning races not long after. I continued to compete in half marathons, triathlons, OCR’s, MTB races, and orienteering over the years.

My travels lead to living in New Zealand, where I volunteered as a Medical First Responder with St. John Ambulance and spent my free time rock climbing, surfing, snowboarding, running, biking and hiking. This is where I found my love for the mountains which lead to my adventures of climbing Machu Picchu and Mt. Kilimanjaro and several in NZ.

My vast multitude of training knowledge and experience will provide you with the confidence you need to start your transformation. This is my lifestyle. I don’t just talk the talk; I walk the walk. Ask yourself these simple questions: Do I suffer from pain and need work on mobility/stability? Do I want to train for a particular event? Am I looking for longevity and performance? If you answered YES to any of these questions, let’s get you in for an assessment and get started on your path to better living.

Lauren Wallis & Associates Psychotherapy

Registered Psychotherapist

Life brings its fair share of challenges. Whether it’s anxiety, career concerns, relationship issues or grief, processing difficult times without support can leave us feeling hopeless and isolated. All individuals are deserving of acceptance and belonging. Connecting to your strengths can help you achieve meaning and happiness. 

 

We offer one-on-one sessions to help address the following issues:

 

- anxiety

- career concerns

- chronic pain

- depression

- grief

- infertility

- family & relationship issues

- spirituality

 

We are a team of 6 therapists who work with children and adults. In our sessions, we create a warm, accepting space where you’re comfortable being yourself, sharing what you’re struggling with the most and a vision of how you want to feel. We believe that finding the right therapist for you is essential, as this relationship creates the foundation for healing and growth to occur. In working together, we’ll uncover behaviour patterns, beliefs and perspectives that will help build your self-awareness and manage the challenges that are holding you back. 

 

We use a person-centred approach, and together, we’ll uncover the sources of your suffering and address them in a holistic way. In your healing journey, we’ll identify your strengths, help you embrace your uniqueness and build confidence so that you can build your desired life on your timeline.

 

We offer both virtual therapy and outdoor sessions, and we have therapists who provide low-cost therapy options for those in financial need.
