Introducing the Outland Health&Fitness Team
Meet the fitness experts ready to help you achieve your fitness goals and your potential.
Hey Everyone, my name is Dan.
My fitness journey started in 2011 after my first daughter was born. My fitness experience was much like many others, working out at the local gym following a daily routine of lifting weights. After a while, I got bored and sick of working out by myself. In 2013 I visited a CrossFit box with a friend, and that was it, I was hooked! Never before had I thought about the importance of functional movements, and how vital it was to my everyday living.
I became a CrossFit level 2 trainer in 2014 and have continued my fitness education, acquiring certification in CrossFit mobility, CrossFit gymnastics, Level 1 Agatsu Kettlebell, and have been training in Olympic Weightlifting since 2013.
I am truly passionate about quality movement patterns. I love teaching others, all ages, how to move properly and get stronger for their every day living. There is no quick fix for health and wellness. It is a life-long journey. Everyone has their own “why” in the fitness world. I want to help others discover that “why”, and I want to help them get there.
Our Professional Coaches
Hi! My name is Sarah, and I love to spread the word of health and wellness to as many people as I can. I am a mother to 2 amazing girls, a teacher to a bunch of crazy junior high kids, owner/coach of Outland Health and Fitness, and true believer in the health benefits of Juice Plus+. After my CrossFit obsession began, I started learning about nutrition and changed the way our family eats.
Hi! I'm Coach Matt. I have always been an active person. Once I was done university I wanted more out of my workouts and needed some guidance, that is when I found Crossfit Outland. August 21, 2017 was my first workout and I was hooked instantly. The world of health and wellness quickly became a passion of mine, seeing people build confidence in their abilities and achieve goals they never thought possible is life changing.
Hey Everyone! I'm Cindy! I was born and raised in a small eastern Manitoba town before moving to Altona 22 years ago. I was drawn into many activities including sports and at age 3 I started gymnastics with the Pinawa Gymnastics Club. I became a junior coach there completing my Level 1 Theory and Technical Gymnastics certifications. I joined the Altona Recreational Gymnastics program as a coach in 2008 and in 2016/2017 was excited to start up Outland Gymnastics.
In 2015 I was excited to hear about Country Strong Functional Fitness. I didn’t know anything about functional fitness but I was up for a new challenge! I have now been a member of Outland for more than 5 years and have seen my body and mind transform into something so much stronger than I thought could have ever been possible! The encouragement , support and motivation you receive at Outland has pushed me to achieve goals I never thought were a reality. In May 2018 I completed
the Crossfit Level 1 Trainer course. I am very excited to embrace this new coaching challenge to help others achieve their fitness goals with the same encouragement , support and motivation shown to all Outland members. This new obsession I have found has very definite ties to my passion for gymnastics both through
competition and “athletic” self discovery. I feel extremely honored to be able to share my passion for gymnastics and Crossfit with the people of the community through Outland. Motivating others and seeing individuals of all ages succeed is what drives me to be the very best coach and trainer that I can! I am excited and determined to grow as a coach as we take on this journey together!
I have always loved being active, enjoying the outdoors, and playing sports. I had been searching for "that thing" to help get me back into consistent exercise when Outland literally paraded in front of me. I've been a part of the amazing Outland community since 2015. Fell in love with it during my intro class and have been an active member ever since.
My kids are involved in the programs too and I love the times my husband and I can workout together. A little friendly competition between spouses keeps life interesting. Besides taking part in classes I get to be a part of the kids programming at Outland Health and Fitness. Whether it is assisting gymnastics coaching or running a kids class, I love to see these younger humans challenge themselves and see successes. It is never too early or too late to begin healthy habits.
CLIENT SUCCESS MANAGER
Hello everyone! My name is Jackie Harms. I was born and raised in the Altona area. I am married to Mike and have two boys - Reed and Brock. I am an Early Years teacher in Rosenfeld and can't imagine any job that is more rewarding and challenging at the same time! I have always had a love for sport and fitness. I played baseball and soccer growing up and as I got older I tried to do at home exercise on my own.
This worked well for short spurts of time but I really didn’t know what to do as far as an exercise routine. I have dabbled in a few sports, such as rec hockey, soccer, slow pitch, ran a half marathon, and basically anything else that I’ve been invited to try! In my 30s I finally joined group classes in Winkler at the Muscle Hut. That was where I found my love for lifting! When the Crossfit gym opened in Altona, I thought I’d give it a try. I was hooked from the first day. I love the variety of movements, seeing progress in my fitness and skill over time, and learning some things that I never thought possible for myself – like rope climbing, double unders, kipping pull-ups and even competing! The best part of this place is the community. I have enjoyed getting to know other gym members and they have become my circle of friends. The community is what keeps me motivated and wanting to come back day after day! And of course, the coaching. I have been pushed to do my best every. single. day. Who would have thought that I could become more fit as I get older?! I am currently working on a handstand walk and always working on learning how to clean! I love the focus on proper movements and endless modifications for all ages and body types! I am excited and honoured to be a part of the Outland team! I have a passion for helping people
become their best and building community, which is what draws us in and keeps us coming! I look forward to working with all of you in this new capacity!
Hey everyone! My name is Dominique Wiebe, born and raised in Altona. Married to Martin Wiebe and a dog mom to an adorable 4lbs maltese/yorkie named Lucy. I was someone who never made my fitness a priority. I tried different ways to be more active, but could never commit to anything. In December 2017 I thought I would give Outland a try! Didn't take long until I was hooked!
I love having a group environment that keeps me accountable, A coach that pushes me to things I never thought was possible! This place has opened my eyes to a whole new me and helped me conquer goals I didn’t know I had. I’m so excited to be a part of the Outland Team and look forward to this next journey!
