Natalia Rabin

Certified Booty Barre and Pilates Instructor

As a mother, Pilates instructor and full time Logistic Manager, Natalia understands first hand, the stress in balancing work, family, and her personal health and wellness. It was this struggle that inspired Natalia to try Pilates as a way to re-energize after her body and mind after long hours of sitting at work. After attending her first Pilates class, Natalia immediately loved the way it made her body feel, and how it improved her posture, balance, core strength, and joint health.

Natalia went on to complete her Pilates Training with Balanced Body University, in order to teach and share her passion of pilates and barre with the others. She strongly believes in the connection between physical flexibility and mental flexibility and for her, nothing helps to develop focus and endurance in business better than whole-body, balanced strength training.

Natalia recently found TRX Training and discovered the similarities between Suspension Training and the Pilates Method. Just as Pilates helps to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body, TRX Training teaches the same principles of control, concentration, and precision. After experimenting with the two, Natalia is excited to bring both methods together in a new fusion TRX Pilates class. Along with Barre, Natalia’s goal is to help each individual client develop and discover their true fitness potential by strengthening both the body and mind. She is equally excited share her passion with the True Conditioning community in order to help people discover what pilates can do for them.

Louis Sargeant

Boxing Instructor

I was born in Georgetown, Guyana and lived there until the age of 11 then moved to Calgary. I was always active in sports, but it wasn’t until I discovered my heroes Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan that I entered the martial arts world in which I excelled. I was offered a wrestling scholarship at the University of Calgary and coached track & field at 2 Calgary high schools over the course of 3 years. I entered the professional boxing arena in 1999, skipping the amateur scene. I am a self-made fighter, having managed my training, career choices and promotion right from the start. 

In addition to being a fitness trainer I am a real estate specialist and certified negotiation specialist. 

When it comes to group fitness and boxing, I have developed an effective exercise program built around proven exercises and healthy eating. Each 1 hour class challenges students in a fun, supportive atmosphere. I train alongside you, teaching you proper form for every exercise. My way is to have fun with my students, and clients and to encourage by example.
