“From the moment you meet with Simon, you know he’s the real deal. He does a thorough fitness assessment, and gets to the root of your “why”. Simon is a professional and an expert in the field of optimal fitness, anatomy, and rehabilitation from past injuries. His knowledge is science based and goes well beyond the average personal trainer who has a CANFITPRO certification. I would only hire the BEST to condition my body, thats why I chose Simon, he’s simply the best in his field! He teaches proper form, first and foremost, so as to prevent future injury and maintain the integrity of proper mechanical (body) movement. His Kettlebell classes are awesome!!! Fun, challenging, and you seriously get a total COMPLETE body workout. I am very impressed with his professional, friendly, non nonsense attitude. I wish I had a simon everyday to motivate me into being my best self. Simon, you deserve to know that you are truly talented and gifted and truly an inspiration!!”
– Beata Vincent (Yoga Instructor)
“I had the privilege of learning and working with Simon as a healthcare practitioner in Athletic Therapy/Kinesiology. He was definitely in the top 20% of our class when it came to theory, but his application skills are what makes him a true expert in the field of personal training. His cool and collective demeanor is not only professional, but helps to create a positive working environment.
As a member of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association, I would definitely recommend Simon Bialecki as a vital addition to any person’s or organization’s fitness and rehabilitation team.”
– Anik Sarkar (Physio Therapist)
” Simon is an amazing trainer! He has a prodigious knowledge of body mechanics and nutrition and is able to match the training to your desired goals. He insists on good technique to get the maximum results and while he pushes you for progress, he does it in a way that recognizes your limits. I have benefited greatly from his knowledge and guidance, and as a result, I keep coming back for more! Thanks Simon!
– Ron Sapsford (Retired)
“My name is Mike and I am a business owner who suffers from back problems for the past 20 years. Over the years I always battled making it to the gym after a long days work and when I did, I watched the clock and looked for any excuse to leave. Simon as a personal trainer is not only a professional but carries the social skills to make you feel like you have known him for years. I have had personal trainers before in the past and none of them were able to connect with me the way Simon has. He has kept me motivated to try and continue to prioritize my health no matter how busy life can get and how many excuses I have to not go to the gym. He listened to my specific needs and goals and made a workout that would help benefit me in the best way possible. Pushing me beyond my limits there hasn’t been a day that I have got to the car and felt the muscle group we worked out to be completely toast. Going to the gym now for 6 months with Simon, I have noticed physical change much faster than I was able to accomplish on my own. I am able to see him twice a week which is plenty and allows me to continue the workouts he teaches me throughout the rest of the week. All in all personal trainers are an expense not all of us want to have but when its comes to your health and living a long life, they make all the difference in making every minute at the gym away from home count and every drop of sweat worth it in the end. I feel great at 53 and would recommend Simon to anyone busy, looking to make a healthy change in their life and make their time at the gym as pleasant as possible.”
– Mike Mikolaczak (Business Owner)
“In the fall of 2013, I connected with Simon to help get me on track. I had totally fallen off the “diet and exercise” wagon and was looking at a closet of clothes that I had “outgrown.” With Simon’s guidance and encouragement I embarked on the Carb cycling program starting December 16th! The assessment he completed at this time, highlighted many areas for improvement. Simon’s faith in me kept me going and be the end of Week 1 I had lost 11 lbs! When Simon did a second assessment I was able to do 12 sit ups where , 4 weeks earlier, I could not do 1! I have lost 20 lbs and am wearing the clothes in my closet. I am in the best physical shape that I have been in decades. Simon’s knowledge and approach has enabled me to meet my goals and has given me confidence to continue to strive to be better and better. If you are serious about becoming healthy and fit, I totally recommend Simon as THE personal trainer to work with.”
– Brenda Chapman
“Simon takes pride in being in peak physical condition and is a great role model to anyone who wants to achieve the same. His knowledge of the principles of strength and conditioning is unmatched. The added benefit of hiring Simon as your personal fitness coach is that he has a background in rehabilitation, so you know that his programs will be individually designed with your safety in mind!”
– Pat Sanziano (Physiotherapist, Strength and Conditioning Coach)
“Simon took me seriously from the beginning even though I was a pure beginner. He has incredible depth of knowledge and experience. Every activity and exercise he had me do, he made sure that I would execute it perfectly. He explained the importance of every exercise, as well as how the exercises would benefit me. Simon has a very creative approach to building strength, improve flexibility and improve the often forgotten mobility. Simon keeps my program fresh with a lot of variety and is very creative and persistent to ensure I improve every time I see him, especially where I was struggling.
Simon is the most attentive Personal Trainer I have ever had and you get 100% of his focus and attention. He ensures ongoing support and follow-up outside the gym as well so that you succeed. He is a true partner in building my fitness. Oh, he is also warm and caring and is great company.”
– Jim Carfrae
“Simon is a rare personal trainer who puts ‘personal’ first. As many people I made the same mistake setting up my fitness goals wrong. I thought about losing weight only. Simon worked with my mind first, telling me that my weight was not something to concentrate on but eating healthy and exercising to get leaner and stronger was a way to go. Not only he follows up with great advise on healthy lifestyle, he educates on every movement, challenges your body every second of your training, pushes you to break sweat and get to that point when you start thinking ‘It’s so hard, I can’t’ and says ‘Yes, you can!’ And when it’s over you think ‘Wow! I did it!’
Every training with him became a little battle with myself for a leaner, stronger me and only a victory will do. Yeah, I did it! in few short months I went from 5 to 15lbs weights and up , I can do more reps, I feel stronger and visibly fitter than before #operation lean continues!”
– Monika Gajewska
“I’ve worked with Simon for almost two years and he has taken my body from a broken down wreck after a car accident and 60lbs overweight into a well developed muscled body anyone would be proud of. His tactics dealing with my prior injuries and working around them to strengthen my core and increase my stamina have helped me in every facet in life. I truly owe Simon my well being. Without his assistance I would still be bedridden in pain unable to lift even a 10lb. box. His encouragement and drive to excel have made me who I am today. I can’t thank you enough Simon for the miracles you’ve performed here.”
– Adam Alistair Shaka
“I have known Simon for well over a decade. I consider him to be a good friend, one that is caring, passionate and holds a high level of integrity and professionalism to himself and those he works with. His approach to life is similar to what he would offer to his clients. He is constantly evolving, learning and creating a higher level of competency in what he does. I’ve spent over 15 years in this industry and one thing I’ve learned is that most trainers can help you achieve your superficial goals. It really isn’t that difficult to help someone build muscle or lose weight. The question is at what cost? How will this common approach affect ones current, past and future injury potential? How will drastic changes in dietary habits to achieve temporary goals affect your health in the future? These are the important questions one should ask when choosing an athletic trainer. What separates Simon from most trainers is that his techniques are safe, preventative, and innovative and will challenge you on a physical, mental and emotional level. Do not hesitate to get the change you’ve been looking for in your life as he will educate and motivate you in all aspects of it! I wish Simon all the best and to any potential clients that read this testimonial, you are in good hands.”
– Peter Pepi (High school teacher, Entrepreneur and Athletic Development Specialist)
“Simon walks the talk. He is easy to follow into fitness. I am so excited to work with him and achieve the fitness results I have always desired. Thank you for your amazing results driven program.”

“I had the opportunity to work out under Simons instructions. I have found that he as quite knowledgeable in weight training, cardio, muscle groups, and dietary needs, a very well rounded trainer. I looked forward to our class together, he would push you harder than you would go but not overdo it. Simon is meticulous on form, constantly checking and correcting when needed. Something I needed because some exercises I had never done before. Always changing up the training to tackle different muscle groups and never get bored of the same thing. It was a pleasure to work with Simon and I would highly recommend him in his field.”
– Eddie Misiak

“I started training with Simon a few months ago and have had a very positive experience. Not only am I down several dress sizes, but I have also gained strength and improved my eating habits. I achieved great results thanks to Simon’s focus on strength training, cardio, nutrition, and mental motivation.
Simon is very professional and respectful. In addition to being a nice guy, he is extremely knowledgeable about the human body and proper bio-mechanics. I had utmost confidence in him throughout our training sessions; he emphasized proper lifting technique and posture which resulted in no injury or stress on my body. Prior to our training sessions, Simon had me complete a full health questionnaire and a fitness test, monitored my heart rate, and helped me set realistic goals. Overall, my experience with Simon was an excellent one.”

– Tomyrick Plouffe (Entrepreneur)
“I get encouraged every time I get to the gym. It seams that exercises are less difficult when the trainer is with you. I work harder and want the results. I hope to get toned and get my body into the shape I remember from years before (before my kids). I hope to get healthier, more flexible and loose all the pains I have (lower back etc). Only after a little over one month (10 sessions) of doing exercises Simon prepared for me, I felt much better. I feel stronger, I sleep better, I eat healthier and slowly I’m changing my life style. I lost 7 lbs so far and I’m working on loosing more. And despite going out of town on business I keep up with the exercise regime and I’m really watching what I eat. A little cheating in this department but I don’t indulge in eating whatever I like. And to my surprise restaurants are really accommodating!!! You just have to ask and they will it for you!!! If I did not start I would be going to chiropractor twice a week to make adjustment on my neck and my back. And I suspect I still would be pains in my back. Instead I’m looking forward to get to the gym and work out. And the most important thing ….it feels good to see that the body shape is changing and cloth size is dropping!!!”
– Elizabeth Kwadrans
“Your body is bound to change when it comes into contact with Simon. Like the famous slogan of Nike – Just Do It – that’s how sessions flow with him. As a fully qualified kinesiologist, Simon carries more knowledge and practical experience than several researchers, doctors and fitness experts combined. What you don’t realize when you sign up for Simon’s services is how intensely you’re going to feel your mistakes- and how compassionate, humble, and emotionally aware Simon is in guiding you through your journey. Sometimes it takes the mind awhile to catch up with the changes it can’t comprehend by the body – and Simon really knows how to support his students and clients while the mind gets reprogrammed to think like a true warrior. Simon really is pro grade fit.”
– Zeena Zaiyouna
“I have trained with Simon for several years now in both personal training and kettlebell boot camps. His workouts are a great balance of cardio, and a full body workout. He never loses focus on proper mechanics, full range of motion and posture. His workouts are physically challenging and technically sound.”
– Dave Suttaby

– Joy Book-Tamas (Business Owner)
“To whom it may concern, This is to attest that Simon was my trainer for a period of nine months and helped me achieve a level of physical fitness was not possible considering I just reached retirement. He was of great help in perfecting exercises with weights and various gym equipment. He even accommodated me in my special request in making videos of a series of exercises I was not quite grasping, this was a tremendously helpful. I would recommend Simon without hesitation.”
– Yves Boutin

“As someone who has had experience with multiple personal trainers, I can honestly say that Simon is the best I have met, from your first session he starts personalizing your workouts and helping you learn the proper techniques for multiple different exercises, teaching you not only how to improve your conditioning and strength, but also how to take proper care of yourself. I found my sessions with Simon to be very rewarding, as he manages to challenge you every minute of every session in different ways – whether he is focusing on cardio or strength training or rehabilitation. One thing I noticed while I was working with Simon was how my posture improved as well throughout our sessions.”
– Haig Altounian
“When I started the health training in January 2015 at “One Health Clubs” in Mississauga I was fortunate enough to be assigned Simon as my trainer. He took great care initially to understand my goals, my present health status and my food consumption before he started my training program. I soon became aware that he had completed many years of training and accumulated a lot of experience which put my mind at ease that he would not attempt to move too rapidly through my training program. We started carefully increasing only as quickly as I could manage while still making progress week by week. Simon explained reasons for his selection of exercises and varied them so they did not become too boring. He explained the reasons for each exercise and which part of the body it was improving.
Early on in the training, Simon emailed a package of documents on effective eating habits and foods to avoid. He made it clear that changing my diet would have more effect on losing weight than the exercise training. As the training progressed he continued to review if I was changing my diet to stay within the guide. During the exercise sessions Simon expected more than just going through the motions. He tried to get me to focus on the techniques he showed me and to do as much as I was able to rather than just remembering how many times I had reached previously. Simon documented the results I achieved in all exercises so he built up a complete record of my progress. I learned when to take breaks and for how long. I learned to push myself beyond what I would have done if I did not have a trainer. I learned that it was important to drink lots of water during the training sessions. I learned to start warming up with lighter weights before each session. I learned that I should do a lot of heart exercising as frequently as possible in addition to the work I did with Simon.
I signed up for about five months of one on one training which has consisted of 1 hour sessions twice per week. I thought the training plan had been well planned and consisted of building up the body core muscles as the basis for the upper body and lower body muscles. I thought that I was achieving consistent progress over this period. Simon taught me to use various pieces of equipment correctly. If I had been left to try to figure out how to exercise with them on my own I would have been wasting time and could have done more harm than good. I thought Simon was very patient and never showed frustration when I did not remember the exact techniques of each set of exercises. He taught me to stay focused and how to breathe properly in order to achieve better results.
It was always necessary to explain to Simon how I felt as a result of the previous session. Did I feel comfortable? Was I stiff? Did I have any pains anywhere? Etc. It was important that my body had time to recover from each session but not start to forget the progress that had been made. I could feel less stiffness after each session and I made improvement in the weights and number of repetitions I have been able to achieve. More progress seems to have been made on my upper body strength than on my lower body. It seems to be important to do a lot of muscle flexing as well as strength building. I assume some of my body fat has been exchanged for muscle.
Simon takes his job very seriously and expects that you are serious too in achieving goals as quickly as possible. I would certainly recommend Simon to others and they should feel fortunate if they have him as their body trainer.”
