Who is John dePass-
John dePass is a lifetime fitness enthusiast who’s been involved in fitness and sports since he was 6 years old.  “I took 6 month’s off from my fitness program when I opened my first Private training center when I was 25 years old.”  That was 20 years ago now. Since then I haven’t had more than a few days off from exercise. I keep fit even while I’m on holidays.”  Fitness is my way of life for John dePass.  He was one of the lucky ones that new what he wanted to do from when he was in his early teens.  “I chose to study Kiniesiology at Mcmaster University in the 90’s.  I new from an early age that I wanted to help people change their lives.”
I knew that I wanted to do that with fitness and nutrition because that is what I loved.  I created Hi-End fitness 25 years ago and the 21 day Rapid Fat-loss Training and nutrition Program has been an evolution ever since.”  John dePass was a international level competitive body builder in his early years.  He was the North American Middleweight Body Building Champion in 1996.  He represented Canada in the Mr.Universe competition in 1993.  It was through those early years of national and international competition that he learned discipline and the value of healthy nutrition.  “I learned how to lose fat and build a strong lean body. I learned the importance of focus and mindset in creating change or success in my life and had the experience of helping many athletes lose fat, build strength and get as lean as possible for their competitions.”
John has been a personal trainer now for 27 years.  He has logged over 30 000 hours of private, small group and large group fitness sessions. John is a Physical Education Teacher at Clanmore Montesorri School in Oakville.  He teaches phys-ed with children ages 10-14.  He’s been married to Dora for 13 years and they have 3 children of their own.  They know the challenges of balancing happiness, relationship, career and family life.  John dePass has helped and supported 100’s of people to lose weight, tone up and restore their youthful body and energy!  “If you are ready to change the direction of your health and wellness then I want to help you do it.”  John is passionate about helping people create changes and recognizes that each individual has the power within themselves to heal or alter aspect of their lives. “The human body is completely remarkable.  It has everything it needs to heal itself.  You can correct every single aspect of your life using your mind.  By adjusting your beliefs, challenging your limitations, outlining your goals, focusing your attention, using your desire, and choosing your words and your actions you can change or overcome any obstacles you may have in your life” If you need motivation, accountability, current information, education, support, exercise or nutrition he is ready to serve.  Get registered in our New Year New You offer today!  John maintains a number of on-line resources to help people stay on track with their fitness and wellness goals even if they can’t get into his private training center.  Work with John On-line or Off-line.  Check him out in more detail here:  View John’s  Facebook Page Now!

Do you need someone to hold you accountable?

How about a monthly measurement program to make sure that you are staying on track?
Would it benefit you to apply the most up to date, scientifically proven strategies to lose weight and keep it off into your life?
Do you need help when you go to the gym?
Are you unsure of what you should do?
Are you afraid you could hurt yourself?
Are you shy or embarrassed to exercise in a public club?
Would you like to combine exercise, nutrition and a success mindset into your life and keep moving in that direction for the rest of your time?

It’s totally up to you…

What do you want from your Pro-Trainer?
Well first of all it always depends on your personal situation.  Everyone at Hi-End fitness is always an individual first and foremost.
Do you have an injury?  Have you been inactive for a while?  Have you been inactive for months, years, or your entire life?  It doesn’t matter. We can meet you where you are today!
What has happened in the past does not have to predict your future.  You need to plot your future from here and now going forward.
Do you live close enough to us to participate in our off-line program?  Can you come in to our private training center down on Burlington Lakeshore?  If not then we can train with you on-line through our on-line video training program.  All you need is a lap-top with a video camera attachment.
If you have sustained and injury you may want to begin with some private training or consider our physio therapy program.  Our Physio therapy based program allows you to access your work health benefits packages to cover your personalized training sessions.
If you are shy or very detained you may really benefit from the private care of this program.
If you want all the benefits of personal scheduled appointments at an ideal time for you then you may want to consider our semi-private training program where you can get all the benefits of private training but gain the opportunity to save some dollars.  Our semi private training program gives you everything that our private sessions do except you share the time with another person.  Bring a friend or family member with you or just allow us to book one of our other semi private members along with you.  We are always careful to match people and abilities.
Or you may wish to participate in the small group training aspect of our program which still allows for personalized programming but offers the greatest savings by sharing your training time with 2 or more others.
You may always choose to work with Dora or Myself or both of us just in the gym or on-line and not choose to participate in the nutrition end of the program.  These are all choices you can make to personalize your ideal plan…
Every aspect of the program is created by choice, by you!
Do you want participate in the on-line training or live training in our private studio?
Would you like to participate privately, semi-privately or in a small group?
Would you like to work exclusively with Dora or myself?
Did you want us to customize your nutrition for you?
Would you like the entire Rapid Fat-loss Nutrition and exercise program?
Want to train on-line?  We can support you at your home, at your gym anywhere you are in the world.  All you need to train with us on-line is a laptop with a camera.  Check out an example of one of our workouts in the video below!

So each step away from the private training program reduces your costs.  If you move from private training to semi private training you save dollars.  If you move from semi private training to group training you save dollars. If you leave out the nutrition and mindset coaching aspects of the program you save dollars.  The entire program is your choice and is set up to your personal choices and desire.
Save dollars also by making a larger commitment to the program.  If you want to work with us for 6 weeks, 12 weeks, 24 weeks or 52 weeks it makes a difference in the price.
The larger the commitment you make to the program the bigger the saving your make.  Did you want to do our 6 week program?  The 3 month program?  The 6 month program?  Or the one year program?
I have created 4 different program lengths and names for our customers convenience:
  1.  6 week program “A taste of Fitness and Wellness”
  2. 12 week program “Getting started with Fitness and Wellness”
  3. 6 month program (24 weeks) “Mini Transformation Program”
  4. 12 month program (52 weeks) “Total life Transformation Program”

What do you get in the Total Rapid Fat-loss Nutrition and Exercise Program?
Are you ready for a total change in your life?
A total change of life means a change in the way you think, the things you say and the actions you do.
If you want to change your life for the rest of your life you are going to have to address the way you think, what you say and the things that you do.  If you don’t change your thoughts, words and actions then everything that you gain while you are working with your trainer will be lost once you leave your trainer.
Are you really ready to let go of the old you?
Dora and I are ready to support the new you with mindset change, nutritional change and alternative actions too!
Once you know you want the entire mindset coaching, nutrition, exercise and well-being of the program and you know if you want to do it privately, semi privately or in a small group then we can begin.
Take a look at Jessie in the picture below!  She has lost 11 pounds in her first 8 weeks!  She feels stronger and more energetic already!  She says she wants to make a bigger effort and commitment in the new year!  As you get into your new fitness and wellness lifestyle you will see incredible changes remarkably quickly.  Those changes are inspiring.  You will be motivated to make a bigger commitment to your best self.  Are you ready to get re-motivated?  Are you ready for some massive results?
