Bio: Fighting out of Independence, Ohio… 6x UFC® Heavyweight Champion of the world… Stipe Miocic! And that’s just the beginning. Stipe is also a proud father, loving husband, and part-time firefighter paramedic. If anybody knows the value of getting up and going to work, it’s Stipe. In fact it made him a champion, six times over.
Bio: Living legend, Rob Riches. Born in the UK, Rob moved to Los Angeles in his early 20s with his sight set on rising to the top of the fitness world. And that’s exactly what he did. While starring in The Rob Riches Show, Rob grew his YouTube channel to over 650,000 subscribers while simultaneously offering personal training to some of Hollywood’s elite actors and athletes. But what else would you expect from “America’s Fittest Model”?
Bio: Netflix superstar. World traveller. BBQ pitmaster. Kinda, almost, part-time, honorary Navy Blue Angel. Gentle giant. And that’s barely scratching the surface. Search the earth and you might not find a more perfect combination of raw, unbridled enthusiasm and gentle, genuine altruism. Rasheed won over America’s heart with his screen-stealing performance on Netflix’s American Barbecue Showdown and he continues to leave that same impression on everyone he meets… and feeds.
Bio: 6’1” with a smile almost as wide, Hayden is just a freshman to the fitness world and yet already winning praise from people 20 years his senior. Splitting time between his hometown of Bellbrook, Ohio and the slightly sunnier Tampa, Florida, you can always find him with a shaker full of P.P.K.™ lifting heavy and spotting anyone who asks. You’re probably used to seeing him on Instagram and TikTok, but be ready for him on some bigger screens any day now.
Bio: Big guys can’t bend. Wrong! Daciw (“Da-shoe”) deadlifts 700 lb then jumps, tucks, flips, and kicks his way through whatever movie set he’s working on any given day. Leading man? Not his thing just yet. Although we do think he’s handsome enough to pull it off. Instead, stunt double Matt takes all the bumps and bruises so the pretty guys stay pretty. Matt’s a monster and if you’re interested in putting on size like him quickly, check out any of his 30+ workout videos on our YouTube channel.
Bio: Maybe the greatest fitness story ever told. We first met James when he was 46 years old and looking to burn a little belly fat he’d put on after his kids left the house. Fast forward four years and James is on stage receiving his IFBB® Pro Card at the age of 50! If there was ever walking, talking proof that age is just a number, self-proclaimed “Regular Guy” James Johnson is it. His story is an inspiration to millions, evidenced by his “Ripped Over 40” workout with over a million views on YouTube. We’re still inspired by him every day and we couldn’t be more proud to call him a cornerstone of our team
Bio: Maya is a full-time dental hygienist and part-time heavy lifter, although her PRs might indicate otherwise. If she’s not brightening someone’s smile you’ll probably find her with a smile of her own hanging out at her favourite place, the Blue Star Nutraceuticals Training Facility. Her positivity and kindness are contagious and she’s got time for everyone she meets. Just don’t talk to her when she’s in the squat rack.
Bio: What does a gymnast who’s been competing for over half his life look like? You’re looking at him. Utah native Jason is studying Physical Therapy and when he’s not doing ridiculous flips and twists of his own, he’s coaching others - in both gymnastics and personal training. Check him out on Instagram where sometimes shows his 150,000 followers how to backflip across busy Hollywood intersections.
Bio: Kellan got serious about fitness after winning a transformation contest at his local supplement store. He put on an insane amount of muscle while absolutely torching his fat for a truly impressive transformation in just under 100 days… then immediately put on 20 lb of queso and pina colada during his Grand Prize all inclusive trip to Mexico. In all fairness, he got right back on the gain-train the moment he got home and even grew a pretty sweet ‘stache in the meantime. You can usually find him at the Blue Star Nutraceuticals Training Facility where guys line up to ask him about his arms.
Bio: Firefighter. Fitness model. Registered Massage Therapist. Lianne approaches health and fitness with the same energy and enthusiasm that she brings to work at the firehall every day. There’s no challenge too big and no task too small for Lianne. She’s a devoted team member and the first person you’d want by your side whether you’re running into a burning building or setting up for a new PR.
Bio: What’s not to love about a guy whose inspiration is his own Mother. “She’s been my idol and my OG from day 1!” Jamison, admittedly, went from scrawny to brawny in just under two years. He was always a hard-gainer, but when he decided to finally take his fitness seriously he added 20 pounds of muscle in 23 months. The first thing he did was focus on form - for an entire year! That’s exactly why his clients stick with him now. When it comes to proper lifts, look no further than this guy. And try not to get blinded by those chiclets!
Bio: Steph has +10 years of experience helping people around the world reach their nutrition, strength training, and general fitness goals. She first became interested in strength and conditioning while studying at the University of Waterloo and in 2016 she shifted her focus to powerlifting. Just months later Steph won the Ontario Jr. Provincial Championships. And in 2019 she won the 57kg Open Class on Team Canada at the NAPF Championships in Costa Rica. When you add CrossFit®, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, competitive diving, and Olympic weightlifting experience to her list of achievements it’s easy to see why Steph is one of the most in demand fitness coaches in Canada.
Bio: If you’ve ever found yourself watching a fitness Reel on IG and thought “how is that even possible?”, you were probably watching Austin Dotson. Famous for his explosive power and energy, Austin has been making jaws drop around the internet since retiring from professional football to focus on helping people improve their lives through health and fitness - and entertain them a little along the way with his impossible-to-copy content. An inspirational athlete in every sense of the word, Austin uses his expertise in football, boxing, martial arts, CrossFit®, bodybuilding, cycling, and track and field to create original and effective workouts for fitness enthusiasts around the world.
Bio: IFBB® Pro. ISSA Elite Strength and Conditioning coach. College football star. 2017 Canadian Nationals Super Heavyweight Champion. Mr. Canada. But also… Accomplished musician. Proud father. Self-proclaimed comedian. People love to tell you “you can’t do everything”. Jonni is clearly out to prove them wrong. To top it all off, he’s got an absolutely exploding YouTube channel to add to his already long list of impressive accomplishments.
Bio: Squat. Flip. Twist. Lift. It’s impressive to be incredible at any one of these things. But it’s something else entirely to be elite at all of them. As both a cheerleader and a heavy lifter, Taylor changed people’s perceptions of what it means to be either one. There’s an enormous amount of power squeezed into her “little” frame and that’s evident the first time you watch any one of her viral videos. But the best part is, whether she’s pistol-squatting, backflipping, or bench pressing, she’s doing it with her signature mile-wide smile - the true sign of someone who loves what they do.
Bio: There are people who do calisthenics, and then there are calisthenic pros. Xavier Cormier is the latter, and his two Calisthenics Freestyle Championship titles are proof. One of the coolest things about Xavier is his ability to find a way to workout wherever he is. New York City scaffolding, a community playground, a tree branch… it’s all the same to him. He’s an athlete in the truest sense and gives a whole new meaning to, “the best equipment is the equipment you have”.
