Growing up in Carp, Rob spent his days playing hockey and riding around on his ATV. In his mid-teens, he began to take a keen interest in lifting weights and his appreciation and understanding of physical fitness and nutrition began to grow. He has seen the difference that these changes can 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 in 2015, Landmark CrossFit was born.

Jasmine’s passion for health and wellness started when she became a Registered Nurse in the operating room and witnessed the effects of poor diet and lifestyle choices.

Jasmine started running in 2004 and has participated in 5k races to a full marathon. In 2016 she joined CrossFit to complement her training, but CrossFit quickly took over as her sport of choice. She even completed an intense 12-week strength training program with coach Rob to improve her performance. After experiencing the positive effects of proper nutrition and exercise herself, she wanted help others achieve this as well. She went back to school to get her diploma in Natural Nutrition, competed the Metabolic Analytics program with Charles R. Poliquin and the CrossFit Level 1 Certificate Course. She is now a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and CrossFit Level 1 Trainer.

Erik Caron

COACH
CREDENTIALS

•CrossFit Level 1 Trainer

Erik’s life has always revolved around athletics – from playing many sports at a young age, to playing Junior ‘A’ and then U.S. Collegiate hockey, as well as coaching/teaching hockey along the way. Over those years, Erik had the privilege of working with many well respected trainers and nutritionists (NHL, NCAA and Minor Professional) and alongside many elite athletes. Erik always placed an emphasis and enjoyed the training and nutrition aspect off the ice that came with playing sports at an elite level. Playing sports taught him many life lessons that he believes helped shape the person he is today.

Once his competitive athletic career had come to a close, he moved on to the next chapter in his life where he became an elementary school teacher. He loves that this profession allows him to be able to be a lifelong learner and to have the opportunity to get better and grow each and everyday.

Erik found CrossFit in 2016 and the many similarities to the athletic career he once had (sense of community, physical and mental challenge, accountability, nutrition, etc.) instantly had him hooked. His willingness to learn and his work ethic are traits that have helped him continue to grow and get better at the newfound sport that he loves – the sport of fitness. Erik decided to take this a step further by merging his love of sport/fitness and love of teaching by becoming CrossFit Level 1 Trainer.

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.

Although Terry stumbled upon CrossFit online back in 2007, it wasn’t until newly acquired friends mentioned it in 2015 that he finally tried a class and was instantly hooked. He attended the CrossFit Level 1 Trainer certification soon after he started in CrossFit and began to coach in 2017 when the opportunity arose. One of his favourite things about CrossFit is the community aspect where there is always encouragement complete one more rep, sharing the excitement of someone learning a new movement or celebrating 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. Becoming a coach has been an extremely rewarding experience for Terry and he looks forward to supporting and challenging everyone to reach limits.
