Avi Sharabi

BSc in Kinesiology with a minor in psychology

Sports were always an integral part of her life – mentally and physically. This sparked an interest in human kinetics, mental performance and athletic performance. These interests manifested in pursuing a degree in Kinesiology, minoring in psychology and playing Varsity rugby at the University of Victoria. 

Despite being a washed – up athlete herself , she found gratification in applying her knowledge and experience to help athletes excel in their athletic goals. Following this path led her to interning as a Strength and Conditioning Coach at the University of Victoria and Speed Mechanics

Once I finished my 4th and final year of my Junior career I was able to turn my passion for sport and fitness into my post secondary career, pursuing my Bachelors in Sport and Fitness Leadership from Camosun. Currently have my CSEP – CPT certification.

Kiara Kilbey

BSc Honours, Kinesiology at UVIC

Born and raised in Victoria, Kiara has always been a west coast island gal who loves the outdoors and being active. Kiara has been playing soccer since she was a 6 – year – old who didn’t know that shin pads are supposed to go under the socks.

This eventually led to playing soccer on the Vikes varsity soccer team at UVic. Being a high – level athlete sparked Kiara’s interest in pursuing a degree in kinesiology with aspirations of a career related to sport performance. Kiara loves using her academic and athletic background while working with athletes to help them perform their best in both training and competition.

Mike Soles

BSc Kinesiology at Camosun

From a young age, sports have always played a major role in my life. They have taught me several key life lessons such as the importance of discipline, hard work, & resilience that I have carried with me throughout my education & ongoing fitness journey.

While I was naturally athletic, I felt as though I never really reached my full potential due to a lack of any structured training. It wasn’t until after high school that I started training consistently & after seeing the progress I was making that I became more interested in strength & conditioning.

Nolan Berner

Bachelors of Sport & Fitness Leadership at Camosun

I am from Saskatchewan. I have been out of athletics for two years now. It has been my identity my entire life so the transition to coaching was quite obvious for me.

I spend my time learning and helping develop young athletes perform better in physical and mental aspects. I believe connecting with people is the foundation to getting the most out of any individual. My belief is that young athletes do not get the support they need to be great. Mental performance and IQ of sports are under – appreciated just as physical training is often not systematically developed and hinders potential.
