Kayla's Coach Testimonial

For: Patrick Skailes, Coach & Mentor

Pat has been invaluable in my fitness journey in more ways than one. All my life I have been active, participating in competitive dance and cheer-leading growing up. I made the gym part of my lifestyle since high-school and continued to go to the gym regularly after transitioning to university. I was your typical ‘cardio bunny’ and could not figure out why I did not have the physique I wanted after spending so many hours on the treadmill. I did not know how to properly train or how to eat to fuel my body. It was not until I met Pat that I was educated on how to lift, eat, train and everything in between. His knowledge and expertise transformed my body and his nurturing words of wisdom, has transformed my mental health. Allowing me to let go of what I wanted to see in the mirror and start trusting the process, it was then I started training with purpose and determination.

In 8 short weeks he transformed my overall body composition as I entered into my first bikini competition. We worked with what little muscle I had from previous years of ‘training’ and made every day count. He provided me with the resources, knowledge and application guidance I needed to transform my physique in such a short amount of time. It was hard, but never once did Pat doubt I couldn’t do it.The experience has the lit the fire underneath me to be the best athlete I can be and succeed in the cut throat industry of bodybuilding. I have him to thank for my past successes and I will have him to thank in the future.

Patrick Skailes has a wealth of knowledge and provides nutrition, supplement and training advice that truly works. It is tailored to each individual need and he works with you to free the potential you may not even see in yourself. He does more than just yell at you to lift heavier (which he does) (a lot), he makes you believe that your body is capable of transforming itself far past what you had once thought before. He has not only been an amazing coach but also an inspiring mentor, and the strategies and lessons he has provided me with have inspired and motivated me to live a life in congruence with my own values and passions. He truly is one-of-a-kind, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for an intuitive, kick ass, and deeply passionate coach.

The thing about Pat is he doesn’t give a shit if you don’t like him for it, he will reach down your throat and rip out your potential because that is what he cares about .He knows what you’re capable of even before you do. And you end up loving him for it.
