Helping people is Rob’s passion.  In his mid-teens, he began to take a keen interest in lifting weights and gradually his appreciation and understanding of physical fitness and nutrition began to grow. He has seen the difference that these changes could make in people of all ages and it was this realization that pushed him to pursue fitness as a career.  In 2012 Rob opened a small personal training studio and began sharing what he had learned.

In 2013 he was introduced to CrossFit. Unlike a lot of the training methodologies that he was familiar with, CrossFit had an energy to it that he hadn’t felt before. It wasn’t long before Rob decided that he too wanted to share this great training experience with more people and Landmark CrossFit was born.

Nothing is more satisfying than being able to help facilitate a positive change in someone’s life and he hopes to do his part every single day.

Val Hoang

CO-OWNER/COACH
Tel: 613-878-0303

CREDENTIALS• CrossFit Level 2 Trainer
• CrossFit Specialty Course: Kids
• NCCP Weightlifting Coach (in training)
• Freestyle Connection Seminar w/ Carl Paoli

Val grew up playing basketball and touch football in high school and has always loved sports. She found CrossFit in the fall of 2012 after a friend mentioned it to her and was quickly hooked. With a keen eye for movement and genuine sense of helping others, she got her L1 certificate in 2014 and began coaching at the CrossFit box she was attending.

Val was drawn to the Olympic weightlifting portion of CrossFit from day one and I guess you can say she found her calling. She started competing competitively in Olympic weightlifting in 2014 and was competing at the National level. She placed 2nd at Provincials and 4th at Nationals in her weight class (53kg) the following year.

Since retiring from the competition scene, she enjoys impromptu workouts with friends and jumping into class with our members. She believes that having fun is a huge part in successfully achieving your goals.

Val is a CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and a CrossFit Kids & Teens Trainer. Her enthusiasm and outgoing personality makes her extremely easy to work with and no matter how big or small your fitness goals are, she is always happy to help you achieve them. She likes to dish out a little tough love but it’s for your own good.

Terry Walker

COACH
.

CREDENTIALS•CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

Terry grew up on the rinks in Northern Ontario and has always had a passion for all things sports. From competitive hockey to football to years at local gyms, he has always been fascinated with fitness.

Around 2007, Terry stumbled across the CrossFit.com website, he remembers trying to wrap his head around their concept and Olympic Lifts, and adapted in his training the simple concept of working out with minimum breaks between sets. As the years went by he never considered that CrossFit had expanded out of the California garage gym scene and it wasn’t until newly acquired friends mentioned that they did CrossFit here in Ottawa that those memories were triggered and he was instantly hooked.

His love for learning, fitness and a good physical and mental challenge has made CrossFit his passion. He had the opportunity to take the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer certification soon after his CrossFit lifestyle started in 2015, and enjoy the gratification of learning new movements and challenging both himself and others to dig a little deeper. He also love the CrossFit community where there is always someone encouraging you to complete one more rep, sharing the excitement when someone learns a new movement or hit a long chased personal record.

His full time profession has allowed him to learn and develop his leadership skills, while his desire to help others succeed with their goals and dreams now has crept outside the corporate world. After some recent difficult life situations for his family, he knew that he needed to follow that calling into the fitness world and use his experiences, training, and passion to help others reach their fitness and mental goals. Becoming a CrossFit trainer has been an extremely rewarding experience for Terry, and he looks forward to supporting and challenging everyone to reach limits which they never thought was possible.

Jasmine Baylis

NUTRITION COACH
.

CREDENTIALS•Metabolic Analytics Practitioner
•Former Registered Nurse

Years ago Jasmine was a Registered Nurse in the operating room and saw the effects of poor diet and lifestyle choices firsthand. Feeling like she needed to do something to prevent illness and disease rather than just treat it, Jasmine left the Nursing profession discouraged.

In her search for her own health and wellness, she joined Landmark CrossFit and in 2017 completed 12 weeks of personal training and nutrition coaching with Coach Rob.

Little did she know, this 12-week program would change her life. Jasmine had gone on diets before and had tried to eat healthy, she had even run a marathon, but nothing had produced the results that good nutrition and lifting heavy weights produced. Inspired by her own transformation, Jasmine decided to go back to school where she is completing a diploma in Natural Nutrition to become a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and completed the Metabolic Analytics program with Charles R. Poliquin in Phoenix, AZ.

“I’ve always had fitness goals for myself and just assumed they were, and always would be, out of reach. Once I focused on the right foods with the right exercise program I saw changes in my body, energy levels and mood. I achieved what I thought was impossible. Now I can’t wait to help others reach their goals too!”, says Jasmine about her newfound passion.
