Meet Devin Coish!
Devin grew up being relatively active. In his early years he played soccer and taekwondo. As he aged through his early teens, he moved into various different pick up sports.
Never joined any teams but loved to be active through a variety of different sports and activities. Once at the age of sixteen, his father took him to gym for the first time. From that day forward he fell in love with lifting, nutrition and fitness.
He then started spending his free time reading, researching and watching videos to expand his knowledge. Always being a caring person, Devin knew the potential benefits that this industry could have on not only himself, but others, so he changed all his high school courses to eventually lead him into the kinesiology program at U of T with hopes of eventually helping, impacting and influencing as many people as he can.
Devin is a certified personal trainer and will be graduating from University of Toronto’s Kinesiology program in 2017.

Meet Phil Bougram!
Phil Bougram is 24 years old currently in his 3 rd year studying Kinesiology at Brock University.
He is a graduate of Liaison College for Basic French Cuisine.
Growing up, Phil had a passion for World Wrestling Entertainment.
Superstars like The Rock, Hulk Hogan and Shawn Michaels had impressive physiques. Through the WWE, Phil was determined to change his body. Along the way, Phil spent 7 years attending United Family Martial Arts.
Karate instilled a ‘never give up’ attitude along with learning to respecting his peers. The need to look impressive slowly started to change, as working out eventually became a stress mediator.
Through life’s challenges, Phil always could relax at the gym. Not only did working out change the way he looked, but removed stress and built confidence within himself. Phil truly believes that a healthy body leads to a healthy mind and soul.
Phil loves spending time with his family and friends. He has a passion for sports, music, cars, food… and dancing!
