“My personal trainer is Jenna MacLeod. I’ve been working with Jenna for three months now and she is excellent. As former athlete who maintained a fairly regular training and fitness routine over the years, I thought I was in fairly good shape. But I was in a rut doing the same old exercises. I’d never had a personal trainer before and frankly was a bit skeptical. No longer. I’m now out of my rut with Jenna challenging me like never before and the results are showing. I highly recommend personal training with Jenna for anyone looking to bring their fitness to the next level.”
"Sam has transformed the way I look at fitness to the extent that I look forward to going to the gym. I don't consider our sessions as "personal training", but rather, lifestyle coaching. Sam and the entire Striation 6 team understand what it means to live a healthier, happier more balanced life. I'm thrilled to call this facility my go-to destination for all-around well-being."

“Brad is obviously not content with his level of knowledge and ability. He is always focusing on improvement and development himself. I would have no hesitation to recommend him to friends, family or colleagues.”

“As a three-time Olympic Team member, Olympic Bronze Medalist, former Head of High Performance for Rowing Canada and Masters Rowing Athlete I thought I had experienced everything the performance world had to offer. Then I met Brad Thorpe of Striation 6. His approach to isometric-based performance training and patented ISOPHIT training device helped maximize my training and competition results. The ISOPHIT program helped to identify and correct imbalances and areas of weakness and most importantly allowed me to train all season without injury. As a result I was able to drop 10 seconds from my time at the Head of the Charles regatta and move up from 5th to 3rd, in a field of 59 competitors.”

"Tamara is a very knowledgeable and passionate trainer. She is the perfect combination of being tough and creating an enjoyable, fun and motivating atmosphere for our sessions. Tamara helped me reach a level I never thought possible. She help me break through mental, physical and emotional barriers needed to reach my goal to become stage ready. The results achieved far exceeded my expectation. Working with Tamara has brought me many physical and emotional benefits and knowledge that will last a lifetime. Making the commitment to training with Tamara and bring my full effort to each sessions is one of the best decisions I have ever made."
"When I first started with Tamara I didn’t have very lofty goals. I wanted to lose some weight and generally be more healthy and active. I decided to go with a personal trainer because I needed someone who would take this journey with me. That was Tamara. For the next two years, Tamara guided me, taught me the proper techniques, celebrated my successes, and was a good listener to boot. I far surpassed anything I imagined. I knew that I was strong but I had no idea that I was THAT strong and I discovered that I really enjoyed weight training and exceeding challenge after challenge. Tamara opened my eyes and my mind to what was possible. I would highly recommend Tamara as a fitness coach."
