Whistler : Whistler Village

Alumni Ambassador Greg McKinnon

Whistler Creek Athletic Club

Born and raised on a dairy farm outside of Port Elgin, Ontario, I moved to Toronto to study Business Marketing at Seneca College. During my studies, I took an interest in personal fitness and began training myself. After school I took a job in Corporate Sales at a Canadian telecom giant. As my passion for personal fitness continued to grow, I became CanFit Pro certified and began training friends and family after work and on weekends. I soon began volunteering as a personal trainer at an addictions treatment centre. Seeing first hand the positive impact I brought to the lives of people with substance abuse issues, I discovered that my true calling was as a personal trainer and motivator. I then took a fulltime position as a personal trainer at a large fitness facility in Toronto. In January 2012, I moved to Whistler and assumed ownership and management of Whistler Creek Athletic Club and begun a revitalization of the facility. With over 10 years of experience, I hold numerous fitness certifications and I’m focused on helping my clients achieve their fitness and lifestyle goals through exercise, diet and personal inspiration.
