Randi Dias

Manager

Everything about Randi screams passion!  From her constant need to learn and do better, to her peerless and unrivalled approach to client-trainer relations.  Randi is a finite example of refined talent.

A mother of two and master-multi-tasker, Randi defies the odds when it comes to her passion for fitness and seeing others succeed.

“Bring it on!” she says. “I thrive in an environment that is busy. I love a challenge.  The truth is, the more obstacles I have, the more obstacles I have to overcome and learn from! It’s all in how you look at things.  Change your mindset, and you will change your life.”

Randi has been in the fitness industry the majority of her life and has experienced many different forms of training. Starting out with Figure Skating at the young age of 5, she quickly moved into the competitive scene at 8 years old.  Later she competed at the National and International level in single and pair skating.

In high school, Randi became a National Cross Country competitor, and loved every aspect of the experience.  From the strict training schedule, to the unquestionably supportive running community London has to offer.

Her experience within the fitness community has been a great asset to managing Forest City Fitness.

Be sure to stop by the office to ask Randi to share her perspective about training, nutrition, and of course, how to turn a negative day into one that is positive!

One thing is for sure, you can expect to be greeted at FCF with her big smile, and her dedication towards watching you succeed inside and outside of Forest City Fitness!

Jeff Allen

Personal Training Director

My name is Jeff Allen. I am the Personal Training Director here at Forest City Fitness. 

I have 16 years of experience working within the intricacies of health, fitness, and people management. 

I am a firm believer in taking a proactive approach to health and wellness. Unfortunately, our healthcare system is designed to be reactive – attempting to treat ailments and conditions that are preventable with a consistent exercise routine, structured consumption practices, and decent sleep habits. Now is the time to be proactive.

Athletics have been a significant part of my life for as long as I can remember. As I matured, hockey and skiing dominated the winter, while golf, tennis, and baseball ruled the summer. About five years ago, I was introduced to my new passion – snowboarding. 

I have an Honours Bachelor of Science (Mathematics) and am currently completing the final year of a four-year Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting).

My three favourite places to be are: lifting weights at the gym, playing hockey at the arena, and working on my swing at the golf course.
