The My Healing Journey Team
We are excited to meet you!
Kyle Friesen, RMT,
Kyle has been leading a lifestyle of strength & conditioning since his early teens, and has been certified as a Registered Personal Trainer since summer of 2018. In that time he has accrued experience with various training styles and people with varying goals, wants and needs, from fat loss, to strengthening, to muscle building, to movement development, to core integration and much more! Kyle has been a Championship Curler as well as a AAA Football Player, leading him to study Kinesiology at the U of W, with a brief detour to gain certification as a Remedial Massage Therapist (graduating from Evolve College of Massage Therapy summer 2021), he will be returning to U of W to continue and complete his Undergraduate Degree in Kinesiology & Neuroscience this fall while pursuing Massage Therapy as a career. Between hands-on Massage Therapy skills and fitness training Kyle has developed an integration of tools to help people resolve their dysfunctions, and pain as well as help them achieve their goals, whatever they are. Alongside this base of education and experience Kyle has also completed several advanced training programs earning him the titles: Movement & Mobility Specialist & CHEK Practitioner, which informs his holistic approach to practice.
If you have any questions about this please don’t hesitate to reach out and ask; all questions are welcome. Outside of fitness, he enjoys the great outdoors, camping as much of the summer as possible, spending quality time with his wife and their fur babies, Rupert (cat) & Maeve (dog), and hanging out with friends and family.
