Brent is a full-time fitness coach and the leader in bringing PaddleFit to Canada as well as being only the 3rd person to attain the level of PaddleFit Certification Coach. He is a tireless ambassador for stand up paddling and loves introducing new people to the sport through his two PaddleFit Affiliate locations, Barrie and Wasaga Beach. In addition to promoting his own business, he is selfless when providing advise and expertise to assist others launch new SUP businesses throughout Canada and the Central & Eastern US teaching PaddleFit Certifications. Brent truly embodies the spirit of SUP and is living proof that SUP is a lifestyle and not just a sport.
As a multi-dimensional retail, lesson and recreation business Northern SUP achieved a lot of success in its first 2 seasons, but Brent realized that his calling was introducing people to the incredible fitness benefits of SUP and getting them on a fun healthy path. Paddling alone is a killer workout, but what Brent found is when you combine paddling, progressive technique, on-land exercises and a healthy dose of consistency, the results were amazing (and his clients were having a blast). From this process, Brent has partnered with PaddleFit as their Canadian Affiliate along with achieving the level of PaddleFit Certification Instructor for Canada and the Eastern US.
In 2013 Northern SUP joined forces with The SUP Hut in Wasaga Beach. Partnering with The SUP Hut allows us to offer PaddleFit to the communities of Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, Blue Mountain and all along Georgian Bay.
