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.
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 honoured 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!
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. In March of 2019, I completed my Crossfit Level 1 Trainer course and started coaching shortly after, since then I have completed multiple other courses as I strive to become the best coach, mentor, and athlete I can.
Hello everyone! My name is Jackie Harms. 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, curling, and even ran a half marathon! 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 and great coaching is what keeps me motivated and wanting to come back day after day! Who would have thought that I could become more fit as I get older?!
I am excited and honoured to be a part of the Outland team! I want to help people become their best, and I love building community, which is what draws us in and keeps us coming back!
Hey everyone! My name is Dominique Wiebe, born and raised in Altona. Married and a dog mom to an adorable 3.5lbs 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!
Client Success Manager
My name is Jen Dyck. I am the community coordinator for Outland Health and Fitness. I have been a part of the Outland community since January 2020. I played Division III Softball and Hockey in the USA and loved working out with my teammates because we pushed each other to always give our best. Once I was done playing sports in the states, I got my Bachelor of Education, got married, started teaching, had 2 kids, coached a lot of high school sports, and completed my Masters in Education. However, during that time I lost who I was and didn’t make time for self-care. I joined Outland because they offered a warm welcoming environment with highly trained coaches. Group classes are where I thrive because I love to workout with people who always encourage me to do my best. Recently, I have started to push my boundaries by joining different CrossFit competitions and I have fallen in love with the sport. I am excited to make connections with community members and promote fitness for all body types. I have started to make Outland Tik Tok videos to show people that group classes are all about having fun, encouraging others in their fitness journey, and that any workout can be modified to fit your fitness level.
Hi! I am Grace. Ever since I joined a club volleyball team in grade 6, I threw myself into as many sports as I was able to. I was always involved in the sports teams throughout my whole high school experience: track and field, basketball, volleyball and badminton. After I graduated from GVC in 2016, I realized I had a passion for fitness and enjoyed working with kids which resulted in attending the University of Winnipeg to become a Phys Ed teacher in the elementary stream. I missed the camaraderie and competitiveness in sports and the globo gyms weren’t cutting it for me.
After watching a couple of CrossFit documentaries on Netflix I was amazed by what these athletes could do, so I googled the closest CrossFit gym near me, and booked a free trial session at CrossFit Corydon. I have been a member ever since, which was 5 years ago and have been coaching there for the last 2 years. What I love about CrossFit is the community surrounding this sport-wherever you go, people will always be there to cheer you on and push you to become your best self. I’ve gained a lot of my closest friends from stepping into the gym and have been the healthiest, happiest version of myself since!
I’m currently in my last year of school: getting married in the spring AND graduating with a Major in Phys Ed, receiving my Bachelor of Education by the time June rolls around! My soon to be husband is what brought me to Altona and I’m looking forward to joining the Outland team to help promote & educate the importance of living a physically active lifestyle and making a positive impact on everyone’s fitness journey-wherever that may be!
I’m Abby, Im 22 years and I just moved back to my hometown of Altona with my husband after working in Winnipeg for a few years. I moved out on my own when I was 18 and pushed myself to try out a few different group fitness classes, which was completely out of my comfort zone at the time, but I ended up falling completely in love. I tried boxing, rowing, TRX, Pilates, yoga, hot barre, bootcamp, and spin classes. I was hooked on the feeling you got right after a really good workout. And that’s when I discovered a new found motivation to reignite my own fitness journey. I became a spin instructor after training for 6 months and really loved how intense and high energy it was. Then covid hit and group classes got shut down, so I decided to further my fitness education. I took the professional personal training specialist course to become a certified personal trainer! It taught me a lot and reminded me how passionate I am about movement and fitness, and I am so excited to join the Outland team
