Illia Khomenko- Personal Trainer

Illia’s expertise as a personal trainer is backed by a wealth of up-to-date education. A kinesiology graduate from UBC, Illia focuses on correcting imbalances and preventing injuries. That said, he also has credentials in rehabilitation and chronic pain management.

Illia says, “There is no perfect exercise or routine that you must do, it all depends on your current capabilities and the cues from your body.” Ilia’s great eye for the fine details is a bonus for his clients.

Outside of the gym, you can find Illia playing football, basketball, volleyball, zooming around the seawall or up in the mountains.
