Luiegi Magnaye (KIN)
My name is Luiegi Magnaye, ACE, BCAK, certified and RMT student. I have carefully decided to become a personal trainer after having gone through injuries of my own. At this point after weeks of sulking, I decided to change my life. The transition to making healthier decisions was not easy; I struggled everyday. But I remembered the days I was injured and I pushed forward. Surrounding myself around experienced and disciplined others with the things I want to accomplish helped the most. Their influence and presence changed my habits and made my daily health decisions easier. This was my “Aha” moment.
Environment was one of the keys to success. I asked my coaches and mentors what certifications and education they went through to be just like them. Because being fit and healthy was like breathing to them. This was the climax to my story. I studied hard and kept surrounding myself with others that had what I wanted. I have reached my fitness goals and become healthier. Being so grateful to those who helped me made me realize it’s my turn to give back and help others. I wanted to spread the happiness and sense of accomplishment I felt.
Jumping to now, I have more than 4 years of experience in personal training: strength and conditioning, fat-loss, and injury rehab. I am currently studying as a registered massage therapist at Langara to further expand my wealth of knowledge.
I invite you to join me and collaborate together to achieve a plethora of fitness goals and turn your life around. Who knows. . . maybe you’ll help others as well.

Nathaniel graduated from the 3000 course at the West Coast College of Massage Therapy in Dec 2019.
Nathaniel started his career of helping people in tech support, where he learned valuable troubleshooting skills that he utilizes to great effect in his massage therapy practice.
He is empathetic and genuinely cares about his patients well being, doing everything he can to help them get better in the shortest amount of time.
Nathaniel prefers to massage at a therapeutic pressure, where it may hurt a little bit, but it still feels good. This level is different for everyone, so those that enjoy a deeper massage, and those that enjoy a lighter massage can all leave feeling that the treatment was tailored just for them.
In July 2023 Nathaniel participated in a course for DermoNeuroModulating or DNM. This course teaches an interactive approach to manual therapy that considers the nervous system of the patient from skin cell to sense of self. Techniques are slow, light, kind, responsive and effective while being in constant communication with the patient to understand and guide their healing journey.
In his spare time Nathaniel enjoys the outdoors, hiking up mountains and scuba diving in the oceans.
