    5 star review  I've had the pleasure of going to Dre's classes over the last few months and I have loved them! The classes push me to my boundaries physically. The motivation and support Dre gives is so helpful in finding the power to push through. I really enjoy the yoga aspect in the classes as well, I truly feel like I am working every aspect of my body. I can't wait to continue on this journey with an incredible teacher! Thank you Dre!

    5 star review  If you are looking to push yourself past your own limitations, then Dre is the trainer you have been searching for! Inspiring and motivating, Dre will ensure you have the toughest workout for your own abilities. The yoga based warm up and cool down is his unique trademark and gives you the most well rounded workout you will ever have.

  • 5 star review  The first thing I will say is that if you are researching coaches in toronto, Dre is absolutely the best hands down!! Once you have that first session you will be hooked. Dre has mastered his craft. Every second of the workout is spent pushing me to my maximum potential. He is very knowledgeable not only about training but about nutrition and supplements which is very important if you're looking to transform your body. I went to him for weight loss and I have gotten stronger and continuously get comments from everyone about how great I am looking. If you want someone to push you and give you a workout like no other then Dre is the guy.

    5 star review  Dre is simply awesome! He makes sure you give 100% every single time you are with him. Don't even try to slack around, he will come get after you. He's aggressive when he needs to be but he also knows when he needs to turn it down a notch. He trains smart and I can respect that, because it's not always about doing a million reps of something. That's something I have learned with him, Dre always emphasizes quality over quantity. If you're in the search of someone professional, who can get you results you want, Dre is the way to go.

  • Dre is super coach, he really know what he is talking about. I love the combination of fitness, yoga and mindfulness that Dre brings into his training programs. He understands that some of the biggest challenges we face are not just physical but mental as well. I would highly recommend Dre if you are seriously looking for change.

    5 star review  Dre is an excellent trainer! I’ve been to multiple studio gyms with various classes over the past 3 years — Dre’s class is my favourite. He makes sure my technique and form is correct, and always pushes me further than I think I’m capable of. The yoga and stretching is a perfect warm-up and cool down. Thanks Dre! �

  • 5 star review  Our running team had a great session with Dre. He tailored our class to be restorative to help us recover from all the mileage we run, and touched on the typical issues runners deal with. He also had a great playlist that gave the class a different vibe and way more enjoyable for those who are not as familiar with yoga.

  • 5 star review  Dre's classes are the most challenging that I have ever experienced. Although I have called him a few uncomplimentary names while in the thick of it, I am grateful for his professional expertise and ability to take me to the next level even when I think I'm done. He is both encouraging and relentless with the added bonus of being attentive to stretching and flexibility. Awesome trainer!

  • 5 star review  If you want a coach that gives you sustainable results and keeps it real with you Dre is the man! He keeps things very simple and doesn’t believe in drastic changes. He tries to look at everything from your perspective, which I really liked because sometimes I just can’t fit certain things in my lifestyle and Dre finds a happy medium. He made small tweaks to my nutrition and the way I was training. I got to my leanest at 10% body fat from 26% with working with Dre.

    5 star review  I started training with Dre three weeks ago. After trying a series of other trainers he is definitely the best trainer I've worked with in Toronto. He is very knowledgeable about fitness and health and his workouts are amazing. In additional to his workouts he's very very knowledgable on nutrition. I already dropped 6lbs and feel stronger and healthier. If you're looking for an amazing coach, Dre is the one!!

    5 star review  If you’re looking to strip some calories, work up a torrential sweat and have a helluva good time, Dre is definitely the coach for you. I’ve only been to a few of his classes, but it just took that first class for Dre to have to positive yet motivating impression on me to continue onward. I’ve been working out consistently for years, but what he brings to the table is completely different from my personal workout routine. At some points, I feel like I’m at square one. But that’s fantastic because his classes made me realize there are aspects within the fitness realm that I vastly want to improve on. There’s without a doubt his programs are going to aid significantly on getting me into the best shape of my life. Very exited for future sessions!

  • 5 star review  Dre is an awesome trainer who motivates and pushes you to your max, especially when he knows you are slacking and have more gas left in the tank. His classes are extremely well thought out and target the entire body, leaving you with a feeling of accomplishment at the end. His music is also top notch, which always helps in getting you through an intense workout!

    5 star review  This guy is the real thing. You want a trainer that knows his stuff but who is also an amazing coach. Dre gets pretty deep with things and makes you really think as to why you have certain guards up which stop you from getting to your goals. I had to overcome some serious walls, which had nothing to do with training or nutrition but as Dre likes to put it " GET CLEAR" I was able to get things done and be in one of the best shapes I have ever been in. 5 stars for me.

  • 5 star review  THE BEST TRAINER EVER! Dre is always super encouraging, I wouldn't even really call him a trainer because he goes out of his way to make sure you are cared for. He really does go that extra mile. We have been working together for the past 3 months and I have dropped 10lbs and have gotten stronger. Really excited to reach my goal, I'm almost there 🙂

    5 star review  Dreeee is a fantastic coach to have on your side. He's a very good listener and understands any concerns you may have. He believes things are always "workable" you will hear that alot. Excuses? He will call you out on a lot of things, but this is what makes him an amazing coach. He will tell you things you probably don't want to hear but you need to hear. Dre is more than just an amazing trainer, he delves deeper into what hinders you from achieving your goals. Dre has changed my views on a lot of things and for the better, if you want someone is knowledgeable, inspiring, and you desire a change to be at your best, Dre is the one you need to seek.

    5 star review  Dre is an incredible coach, he is very attentive and inspirational. If you are having an off day, Dre is really good at motivating you to get your ass back on track. He's super supportive and understands challenges that you go through, you give a Dre a obstacle he will sit you down and come up with a solution with you. I couldn't say anything more positive about Dre, what I like about Dre is we both worked on a plan together so it actually fits with my hectic lifestyle and it makes sense for me. Not something that is entirely out of the ordinary and impossible to fit in. Dre has gotten me in amazing shape and I couldn't of gotten here without him. If you want someone who can get you looking your best, Dre is definitely your guy!

I had hit a plateau with my own results, Dre made some minor modifications to my training and diet and I got leaner without losing my size. He's more than a trainer, he genuinely cares about his clients. I would highly recommend him.

  • 5 star review  Dre is an outstanding coach. I'm very active and do a lot of running and started working with Dre so I can get into lifting more and work on my flexibility. Dre has helped me improve issues I was having with my back and hamstrings with his stretch sessions, my back has always been really bad but after just one session I was able to feel the difference. His training program is very well thought out, he explains the breakdown of the program and goes over the expectations with you. Dre keeps you challenged in the best of ways, I would recommend Dre any time!
