Randi Dias Forest City Fitness Manager

Randi Dias

Manager

Everything about Randi screams passion. From her extreme fitness training regimen, to her peerless and unrivalled approach of client-trainer relations. Not to mention, an Instagram based marketing genius. Randi is a finite example of refined talent.

A mother, wife, and master-multi-tasker, Randi defies the odds when it comes to her passion for fitness.

“Bring it on!” she says. “I thrive in an environment that is busy. I love a challenge, and the more obstacles I have, the more obstacles I have to overcome! It’s all in how you look at things, whether you think you can; or you think you can’t, you are right!”

Ben

Personal Trainer

Growing up I played as many sports as I could get into. Everything from track and field to football to volleyball. Eventually, as I got older, I gravitated toward volleyball and began to play it at a high level. I was fortunate enough to win a handful of national championships at the club level and won a national bronze at the college level during my career.

Transitioning to post-secondary Volleyball my coach told me I needed to “bulk up” as I was very tall and lanky. I started training and quickly fell in love with fitness and bodybuilding.

After being plagued with a laundry list of injuries I realized I was enjoying the weight training more. Volleyball ran its course for me and now I’ve switched my focus onto my own training hoping to someday, compete in a bodybuilding show.

I also have a strong drive to help people fall in love with training and fitness the way I did so they can share in all the great benefits it has to give!

I am currently enrolled in my last year of Fitness and Heath Promotion at Fanshawe College. I am looking forward to working with Forest City Fitness and their incredible members.

Alexis Rida Fitness Class Personal Trainer for Forest City Fitness

Alexis Reda

Personal Trainer

Hello Forest City!!! My name is Alexis Reda, and I’m ready to help you build the physique that you want in your life. I have a long history in sports of all sorts, so maybe you can relate—some of them, like Shotokan karate, swimming, and figure skating I took to the competitive level—and currently I hold a canfitpro PTS (Personal Training Specialist) certification along with CPR and AED.

Believe it or not, most all my life I have been a musician: a one-woman band! In fact, I am pursuing a degree in Popular Music at Western U and recording my debut album. I feel like I must tell you this because it was the discipline of music, work, and school that drove me to balance it out with fitness.I continued to practice yoga (Astanga, Yin-Yang, and many other styles), and on my own, dove deep into the realm of bodybuilding because I wanted to build a feminine, yet muscular and well-defined physique.

I have always been adamant about having a scientific basis for my training, so I continuously study not just about optimizing the superficial body, but how the mind, deepest muscles, and other health aspects influence it all. It’s not just about looking good or doing what you have to do; it’s about loving yourself and the life you live with all it’s changes! Fun facts about me: I ride motorcycles, love food, and play a mean Van Halen.

Rick Hunter Personal Trainer for Forest City Fitness

Amir Rasinlic

Personal Trainer

Hi, I’m Amir Rasinlic and since 2002 I have been helping people achieve their fitness goals and help them realize that they can have a balance of looking and feeling better while still being able to eat some of the things they enjoy, including chocolate and bacon.

Most of my clients are over 35, tired of fad diets and hard core “soul crushing” workouts that leave them feeling broken and defeated.

My clients come to me wanting to look and feel healthier and overall better. Most have some kind of joint or muscle issue that has been nagging them for years. My typical client is looking for a safe, effective and a long term solution that improves their quality of life. This is what I aim to do with a personalized fitness experience for each client.

Outside of helping people get fitter and healthier, I am a married father of two boys, a 1 month old and soon to be 4 year old. When I am not running after my boys, I enjoy weight training, boxing/kickboxing training and golf. Like many 40+ year olds, I aim to have enjoyable workouts without breaking myself like I did in my younger years. I like to challenge myself but pay attention to my body and take my lifestyle stressors into account when planning my programming so not to aggravate my previous injuries.

If you are interested in chatting with me about your goals and seeing how I can help you with your fitness goals and have that life balance too, contact me at www.trufitness.ca or admin@amirrasinlic.com and I would be happy to help!

Sincerely,
Amir Rasinlic
B.Ed., CPT, Fascial Stretch Therapist, NCCP L2 Boxing Coach, WAKO Kickboxing Coach
