John has been active in the health and fitness field for forty years. In his teens, John was a nationally ranked (amateur) bodybuilder. Fascinated by the ability to transform a body through exercise & diet, John began helping individuals with their nutrition and exercise programs back in the 80’s.
John observed that the 40-year old’s training at the gym, were ‘younger’ and more ‘vibrant’ than his 40-year-old parents. These early experiences set the stage for a deep understanding of the importance of diet and exercise in health and longevity.
In 1987 John lost his mother to a three-year battle with cancer. This was by far the single biggest influence on the direction his life would take. His passion for “bodybuilding” shifted to identifying the lifestyles and behaviors that either - help or hinder human health, wellness and performance.
John’s competitive energies turned towards developing a true health care system by uncovering the truth found in scientifically based research and natural laws.
In 1994, John was introduced to the QXCI, skeptical of Dr. McCoy’s ‘Tricorder’, it took another 18 months, before he would sit down to experience it. Just 10 min into that session, John was overheard saying, “Oh shit, I’m going to have to get one of these.”
In 2000, John began developing a new exercise process called, Foundational Movement™. Which is specifically designed to restore balance and stability to the musculoskeletal system, and a full active range of motion. Which reconnects the brain to the body and releases a primary cause of chronic pain.
In 2008 John opened FUSION - Human Development & Performance Corporation and in 2011 introduced the, The New Health Care. To specifically work with individuals who understood the need and were willing to take control of their own health and wellness.
In 2012 John coauthored the Amazon bestseller, The Fad Free Fitness Formula, in which John explains how fitness is - primary health care, and the catalyst for all healing, recovery and growth. Even the brain is unable to work properly without physical movement.
While FUSION clients were experiencing unprecedented results, John recognized that the hardest issue for them, wasn’t the dietary changes or the sets and reps of exercise; it was the unspoken trauma and the uncontrolled thoughts and emotions racing through their mind and bodies.
As a direct result, John partnered with his future bride, a Clinical Psychologist to address all of the unspoken barriers, and in 2020 they opened The Personal Growth Centre in Saskatoon, SK.
