Jarid Vaughan is a sports strengthening savvy and a great motivator, his support was crucial in my preparation en route to the Olympics. Working with him was vital for improving my strength condition and learning practical exercises that consequently improved my skills in the gym as well as on the track” – Takeshi Fujiwara.

 

Basketball

Louise Forsythe

 

Jarid Vaughan helped coach and train Louise for improvements in strength, size, explosiveness, quickness and overall athleticism en route to her selection to team Canada and a selection to the NCAA. Louise currently plays for Gonzaga university in the NCAA and is one of Canadas top women basketball players.

Jarid was a huge help in me achieving my goal of making the Canadian National basketball team and getting an NCAA scholarship for Basketball. My strength, fitness, and mobility improved drastically and I am continuing to work with him in preparation for NCAA Division I Basketball at Gonzaga University. He is very organized in his planning of my workouts and is attentive to proper form for each exercise. I look forward to training with him each week. He is a great trainer for an aspiring athlete. – Louise Forsythe.

Keegan Maddocks

 

Vaughan’s Fitness has helped Keegan over the years develop explosiveness, overall athleticism, injury rehabilitation and much more to help Keegan towards his future goals in Hockey. Keegan was drafted 165th overall in the WHL draft to the Victoria Royals.

Making it to the next level in sports requires significant sacrifice AND a great support team. Jarid and his staff were instrumental in supporting me in improving fitness, flexibility, and strength; both physical AND mental strength. They educated me as to proper stretching, muscles and how they work, including the mental side of overcoming diversity. Jarid also worked directly with me on gaining the best results from “Combines Testing” allowing me to produce the results I needed to achieve my short term goals. Working with Jarid and his team was a great decision, one which I recommend to any athlete wanting to reach their goals” – Keegan Maddocks

Baseball
MLB, NCAA

Michael Choice

 

Jarid helped Michael with lifitng and run technique to help his combine results before being drafted to the MLB. Running speed and power was essential in the final developments of Michael’s budding career.

Jarid helped me gain knowledge of how to run with technique and form, it has helped me gain range in the outfield while also running better times on the bases. I have also been able to stay injury free due to his running techniques, my form has allowed me to take stress off of muscles that I was used to having problems with. I highly recommend you take your athleticism to the next level by training with Jarid Vaughan!” – Michael Choice

Regan Yee

 

Jarid is the strength and conditioning coach for Regan Yee, an international competitor in the 1500/ 3k and steeplechase for Team Canada. Regan has represented her University in the CIS to multiple national victories, has represented team BC at the national level and also Team Canada at international competition.

I started training with Jarid because of his background in elite athletics, and his experience and expertise in this field have proved to be invaluable to my training. Jarid creates strength and conditioning programs that are carefully tailored to meet my athletic goals, but also makes minor adjustments during our one-on-one sessions to take into account how I am feeling on that specific day. The motivation and direction provided by Jarid have helped me to run internationally ranking times as well as remain injury-free while competing year-round in indoor track, outdoor track, and cross country. The atmosphere at Vaughan’s Fitness is always positive and it is a pleasure to work with Jarid and the other trainers here.” – Regan Yee

Hugo Patel Thompson

 

Hugo came to Vaughan’s Fitness because he wanted to improve the strength and flexibility in his hips. His other goals were to work on his core, upper body, and other strengthening/balancing to prevent injuries; as he develops as a player and play becomes more intense and competitive. Hugo says the conditioning is tougher at Vaughan’s Fitness than his regular soccer team so it gives him an advantage when he plays in Europe.

The conditioning is tougher at Jarid’s than my regular soccer team, it’s even harder than the stuff we do in England, so I like it. It makes me more fit and keeps me from getting injured.” – Hugo

Volleyball
NCAA, TEAM Canada

Darby Dunn

 

Darby came to Vaughan’s fitness to improve her explosiveness and conditioning for volleyball specific training. While training under Jarid, Darby’s strength and power improved greatly, all the while getting recruited to Stetson University to play beach volleyball.
Her training at VF got her body ready for the demands of the NCAA.

Braeden came to Jarid and Vaughan’s fitness right after a major knee surgery.  Braeden needed to get back into football ready shape before his first CIS season.  Braeden got recruited to Windsor while at VF and gained and surpassed the strength and athleticism he had before the knee surgery.

All around great experience highly recommend Vaughan’s fitness” Braeden Hutchinson

Gymnastics

Zara Patel Thompson

 

Zara came to Vaughan’s Fitness to focus on strengthening specific muscle groups to be able to incorporate new skills to her tumbling routines. She especially enjoys the handstand drills with the one-on-one spotting to ensure excellent form. Although she already trains gymnastics 3x/week and dances 4x/week, she will not give up her workouts at Vaughan’s Fitness because she enjoys them so much!

I don’t get the conditioning workout that I get at Vaughan’s Fitness anywhere else. They understands exactly what I need and I LOVE the handstand drills spotting me to make sure everything is perfect. I’m stronger and because they watch my form so closely, it helps me to develop in a balanced way. – Zara”

Vaughan’s fitness is AMAZING! The staff are so friendly, professional and motivating. The facility is clean and... beautiful, also located on beautiful grounds. Jarid is a wonderful owner, he replies promptly to emails and is super excited to get clients what they want and need. I would absolutely never go another personal training facility because at Vaughan’s, I truly feel like I’m family. Everyone knows your name, they’re invested in your fitness goals and take an active role in learning more about you. This facility and it’s members and staff are legit. They’re amazing and I would HIGHLY recommend Vaughan’s fitness to anyone looking to get in shape and achieve their fitness goals. I’ve trained with Allysia, Alyssa, Alex and Ally and they’re all amazing! It’s also a super non-threatening environment. I’ve found with going to other gyms before it can be super intimidating when you don’t know all the machines are what exercises to do, but here they explain everything, it’s non-judgemental, and everyone roots for you. 10/10 would recommend.read more

A welcoming, professionally developed and evidently knowledgeable environment was the initial impression I observed... from Vaughan’s Fitness. One year later, I can confidently state that anyone’s goals are achievable with the dedication and support offered at Vaughan’s Fitness. In fact, you’ll enjoy surpassing them. Previously I struggle with appropriate workouts, nutritional guidance, and minor injuries. Initially I debated the decision of inquiring into personal trainers but grateful I chose to. Over the last year, Jarid has been genuinely accommodating to my chaotic schedule. Allowing me the opportunity of working parallel with several trainers who are immensely supportive. They are as interested in your wellbeing and goals as they are fun, motivating and personable.read more

If you’re like me you have been humming and hawing about doing this for a long time. You are looking at websites,... getting all ready to go for it only to say to yourself “maybe later”. I have done the big gym thing before and it’s not my cup of tea, main reasons being that I can never decide what equipment I should use or exercises to do, what areas I need to focus on and most importantly how to perform every exercise properly as to not injure myself. I’m one that needs to just show up to the gym, be told what exercises I am doing and be guided through those exercises in a manner that I won’t injure myself, but also with the intent to achieve the greatest result. I have now been a member at Vaughan’s for over a year and can’t say enough about it. First off this testimonial is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I work out three times per week and have worked with the same two trainers the entire time, Alyssa and Jazmin. I have also on occasion had the fortune of working with some of the other trainers, while mine were on holidays. Marissa, Allyshia, Julianne and Tyler have all been fabulous and a pleasure to work with. This gym is nothing like the ‘big box chain style gyms’. There is no need to feel intimidated and there is every age and body type working out here. If however, you are looking for yoga or spin classes this is not the gym for you. You get to know everyone from the trainers along with many of the other members. It is without a doubt something I look forward to doing each and every time and that’s something I never thought I would hear myself say as I have always hated the gymJarid Vaughn has created an incredible environment here and joining his gym is one of the best things I have ever done. I turned 50 when I first joined and I while I eat fairly well, I was a bit heavier than I wanted to be, had aches and pains here and there and just generally wanted to feel healthier and feel better about myself. I have achieved all that and then some. I never have to weigh myself because I can see the changes. I can easily say that I am in the best physical shape of my life and while I may still have the odd ache and pain (I am over 50 after all), so many of the other issues I was having for years have all disappeared. My wife has now joined Vaugn’s one day per week and she too is really enjoying it. If you are hesitating on whether or not to join, I hope I have at least convinced you to contact Jarid and set up a consultation. Then you can stop doing your endless research on the internet and making excuses. Rob Koremanread more

If you have any sort of fitness goals, go to Vaughan’s Fitness. The first time I trained with Vaughan’s I needed to... get core strength to fix a back injury, and the second time was to tone up and develop over all body strength. I had very noticeable results after only a couple weeks of training and stayed training for 6+ months because I got so much out of it. My back pain has never returned and am now in great shape. The team at Vaughan’s are very knowledgeable and skilled.I learned so much about effective exercises with proper form. The sessions are tailored to your personal goals and are broken up between various types of exercises which makes each session new, interesting, and enjoyable. I cannot recommend Vaughan’s enough. They are awesome and I am so grateful for them.read more
