Dominique Lalande
BSc.Kin./Certified personal trainer

Dominique is a ‘small but mighty’ national champion rugby player, native to Halifax, NS. Growing up Dominique loved playing sports (primarily soccer and rugby) as well as coaching within the realm of those sports whenever possible. This pushed her to continue her education in the field of health and fitness.

Dom is a recent graduate from St.FX earning a BSc. in Human Kinetics. She has discovered that her passion is to help individuals gain strength and confidence through safe resistance exercise, as that is what sports and athletics has given her.

As a coach at One Up Fitness, she wants to help educate others on the benefits of high quality resistance training so they can enjoy a long, happy and confident life. She accomplishes this by challenging individuals to work to their full potential with a positive and encouraging attitude.

Dom keeps her roots in Nova Scotia because she is drawn to the ocean and loves the friendly and kind nature of the Nova Scotian culture.

She also aspires to travel to Europe, as she is intrigued by history and different cultures and loves the allure of the Mediterranean.

Evan Snow
Kinesiologist/Personal trainer

Evan is a very enthusiastic, kind and caring coach who has a deep passion for health and fitness. He graduated from Dalhousie University in 2014 with a BSc. majoring in Kinesiology. Since then he’s made it his mission to plant his knowledge of health and fitness within his clients, attempting to get people to think differently about exercise and, specifically, strength training.

Evan instructs his clients to focus more on the subjective experience of their workouts; the quality of their training. The intensity, or how challenging the workout feels, should come as a result of the level of focus and effort the client puts into every repetition of every exercise they perform. This, in turn will produce the maximum result.

He loves to help his clients better connect to their bodies and most importantly, feel better about themselves as they pursue their journey to improving their health.
I love what I do. Day in and day out I have the privilege to interact with people who truly inspire me. I get to laugh, to learn and to enable my clients to be the very best they can be when it comes to health and wellness. I want to help you achieve freedom and enjoy your life to its fullest potential through safe and productive strength training.”
