"Making people fit & healthy"

This strong passion led to a significant change in my professional life. A shift from engineering field to the health & fitness world!

Hi, my name is Hooman Jamshidi, and I'm the founder of Dur1 Health. I'm a registered massage therapist (RMT), a registered acupuncturist, a certified personal trainer, and an anatomy & remedial exercise teacher at the pharma medical sciences college of Canada and Royal Canadian College of Massage Therapy. 

For the past 17 years that I've been working in the field of health & fitness, I've trained my clients for more than 20000 hours. Clients who wanted to lose weight, athletes who wanted to perform better, and injured individuals who tried to get back to their daily routines. By keeping my therapy and fitness training knowledge updated, I've been trying to offer the highest level of services to my clients.

My strongest skill is the ability to see my clients' bodies as a whole system and to analyze their conditions thoroughly before I make plans to train or treat them. This makes my plans truly customized for my clients.

Not everyone who starts a fitness training plan is injury free, and it's essential that the personal trainer knows how to deal with the injuries and musculoskeletal conditions to help the clients reach their fitness goals.

I'm very passionate about what I do and staying, learning, and growing in this business for 17 years has proven that. I'm ready to help you feel fitter and healthier like the way I've helped many others. Meet me at our neat fitness studio for a chat. It may be the beginning to your health and fitness journey.
