Vlad Timinsky7th at U23 World Rowing Championships 2015
When I first came to B.A.S.E Fitness last winter I felt like I was hitting a plateau in my sport (rowing) and needed to find a way to keep improving and pursuing my goals of racing for Canada internationally. Reggie and the team were super keen to get me on the right track mentally and physically by coming up with a personalized training program that connected the dots for me and helped qualify for the 2015 U23 National Team. After a long summer of training away from home, racing in Europe and taking some time off - I'm back and continue visiting the gym regularly as a part of my preparation for the 2016 season with a focus of eliminating weaknesses, developing strengths and injury prevention.
Rowing Canada High Performance Director
Dear Reggie Zebi, On Behalf of Rowing Canada Aviron’s High Performance Program, I want to sincerely thank you for your contribution to the success of Lauren Wilkinson and the Women’s 8+ at the 2012 Olympic Games. Lauren has singled you out for your support and guidance in helping them get on to the Olympic podium. Your dedication to coaching and helping young athletes achieve their dream is a key element to National Team success. Coaching can sometimes be a thankless task but it is because of people like you, that the athletes and team can achieve success. On behalf of the Canadian National Rowing Team, I want to sincerely thank you for your contribution to the success of the team. Yours truly, Peter Cookson
Reggie is a truly exceptional trainer. He is the ideal combination of tough, motivating, and warm. Reggie’s passion for fitness shows in the creativity he brings to customizing the workouts to suit my goals. Because of his efforts, I am stronger, more flexible and injury free! Most important the workouts are fun and I look forward to each session. I recommend Reggie without reservation and feel fortunate to work with him as a trainer and friend.
I’ve been training with Reggie and more recently, Base Fitness, for the past 8 years and it’s allowed me to achieve more than I could’ve imagined in my athletic career. The training plans have always been incredibly well-tailored to my sport of interest, whether it be tennis or more recently long-distance running. I love training with Reggie!
Nicola MawsonVancouver Whitecaps U18 Girls
I first came to B.A.S.E Fitness two and a half years ago looking to take the next step in competitive soccer. After my first session with Reggie I don’t think I had ever been so tired in my life, but over the following weeks and months I noticed my fitness level and on-field performance increase dramatically. For the first time ever I was able to push bigger opponents off the ball. Last year I was selected into the U18 Whitecaps Girls Elite program and this certainly wouldn’t have been possible without Reggie’s guidance. I came to Reggie to improve my game, but he has given me so much more than that. Not only does he push me harder than I have ever been pushed, he is one of the most encouraging, compassionate and supportive people I have met. These days I am stronger than I have ever been and coming to B.A.S.E. is a highlight of my week.
Jillian TriggWorld Rower
Before starting with Reggie, I had multiple back injuries. At one point, I was forced to take 5 months off just to heal my back. Since I started with Reggie I have not had any problems with my back. Reggie has helped me achieve my goals in rowing, such as winning the 1x at the Royal Canadian Henley. My skill level has improved so much due to the core stability strength I have gained through working with Reggie.

After 2 reconstructive knee surgeries and numerous groin injuries, Reggie helped me to continue to play hockey at a high competitive level. Thanks for all your help!
Lauren WilkinsonNational Rower
Four years ago I was in a serious motor vehicle accident. Following abdominal surgery and a lengthy hospitalization, I began my rehabilitation program with Reggie. It was the best thing that I could have done. Prior to the accident I was playing Rep hockey and training and competing in rowing. With the personalized training program my core strength, flexibility and over-all fitness returned and continued to improve. I decided to focus my energy on rowing and qualified for the Junior World Rowing Championships in Amsterdam. I know that continuing to train with Reggie will make me faster and keep me injury free (Lauren went on to make the Canadian Olympic team).
I love going to B.A.S.E Fitness because the workouts are customized for me. I am an avid junior cyclist and Reggie develops training plans to improve my leg strength for more power and my core to keep balance on the bike. And I have fun every time I go!
Lisa, Diane & SandyTennis
We have gone to Reggie for 15 years and he still puts up with us! We play tennis, so Reggie has made a programme to meet our tennis needs. We may be older, we may talk a lot, we may laugh a lot, but we also learn a lot!!
After constantly changing from gyms/trainers for years I finally came across B.A.S.E Fitness and I haven’t stopped attending because I have finally found a place that I’m really happy to be at. It’s not just your typical gym where they only train your for an hour and you leave. At B.A.S.E Fitness they really care about their clients and their well being and their warm welcome always makes you feel at ease.

I have been working out with Reggie for well over a year, and the difference in my agility and balance is remarkable. He has helped me develop quick feet, greater flexibility, and significant power. Reggie and his team make working out challenging and fun!

Reggie has helped me enormously in becoming a two time Canadian National Junior Tennis Champion. My fitness level achieved through working with Reggie also helped me be selected to represent Canada in the Junior Fed cup. Reggie is very skilled, knowledgeable, and professional. Without his caring, hard-working and enthusiastic attitude I would never have reached the level I was able to attain. Reggie has helped me enormously in my life, improving my fitness level and making me healthy which has had a huge impact on my life.
It has been around two years since I have started my training at B.A.S.E Fitness club. I believe their passion and dedication pushed me to become better and better every session. I followed their advice and I saw incredible results in my body and mental well-being. I highly recommend these professionals to those thinking about getting in shape and work out with personal trainer. Leila.
