personal trainer & nutrition coach
Martin Roberge – My Story
With a lifelong passion for coaching, I discovered my calling early on by guiding the junior football team in high school. Fueled by a desire to support others, I pursued a degree in psychology, aiming to assist individuals in overcoming life’s challenges. My journey led me to a remarkable 20-year career in karate, culminating in a World Championship title in 2015. During this time, I not only honed my physical prowess but also shared my knowledge by assisting in teaching classes.
In my 15-year stint in mental health, I realized the significance of the pillars of well-being—sleep, diet, and exercise. Having experienced the transformative power of exercise in my own life, I recognized its untapped potential in mental health. Despite my counseling expertise, I lacked the certification to address the nutritional and training aspects, leaving a crucial gap in holistic health.
In 2020, I seized the opportunity to bridge that gap by becoming a certified personal trainer and sport performance and fitness nutrition specialist. Now, armed with comprehensive knowledge, my mission is to empower individuals to champion their health, drawing from my rich background to guide them toward newfound well-being and unparalleled heights of personal achievement.
