Speed, strength and power development including increasing lean muscle mass and improving body composition.
Aaron Chew, MKin, CSCS, RMT
I love education. I love coaching. And I love sport.
I have a Master’s in Kinesiology from UBC, a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology from SFU, and a diploma in massage therapy from the Ontario College of Health and Technology. I am a sessional instructor for the UBC School of Kinesiology, and have delivered lectures, labs and coaching sessions at other post-secondary institutions including Thompson Rivers University, Langara College, and Douglas College.
I have spent the previous four seasons as a strength coach and manual therapist in the CFL with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and BC Lions. I have also held strength and conditioning positions at other great organizations including the University of Washington, Simon Fraser University, and the Basketball BC Provincial Team.
Personally, I’m a basketball player and competitive weightlifter. A lifetime on the court learning from Canadian National Team members instilled a passion and obsession with bettering myself and the next generation that follows. Now, I use their lessons along with a barbell, weights, and great training environments to meditate, reflect, and fuel my competitive drive.
What I love about ALL sports is the development of body and mind, and their immense power to transcend societal barriers, foster meaningful relationships, build character, and develop leadership through the process of self-cultivation, overcoming adversity, and teamwork.
If these values resonate, it would be my pleasure to work together.
