Meet Your Coaches
Angela started her professional practice as a clinical kinesiologist when she was 23. She got referrals from just nine doctors and her practice grew to encompass personal training, fitness classes, sports therapy, accident rehabilitation, and even ergonomics!
Angela didn’t learn many business skills in university (so, like actually none!). What she did learn she picked up by working in rehabilitation teams during her co-op terms through the University of Waterloo's kin program. She wants to help you cut to the chase of what worked for her - and skip 20 years or so of learning what NOT to do!
Malik started his practice as a sports therapist when he was just 21. TWENTY ONE. In three short years he found himself working as an assistant strength and conditioning coach with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment - yep - the parent company of the Toronto Marlies and Toronto Maple Leafs hockey teams. You may have heard of them.
Malik had help - and grew and scaled his private practice while accepting a new job through his incredible networking skills. Malik likes to say, ‘Your network is your netWORTH.’ Sure looks like this paid off - all the way to the bank.

Now it's time for you to decide.
Picture this. You’ve just graduated with an ink-not-yet-dry kinesiology degree. Well, congratulations to you! As you emerge from university blinking your eyes into the great ‘beyond’ you realize, ‘now what do I do?’ Luckily, after working through this course step by step, you have a solid job with great clients and a happy employer. You have private clients filling up a schedule that YOU mapped out. You are starting to live life on your own terms right from the start. You are filling up your bank account week by week and managing your money with style!
BUT! If you decide to skip this course and happen to fall into an assistant role at a local physiotherapy clinic you might find yourself feeling under appreciated, underpaid, and, well, bored! You might not be able to find great referral sources, book high quality clients or understand all the nuances that come with establishing your new reputation as a qualified and sought after health care professional right out of the gate.
