Brendan is currently finishing his Athletic Therapy degree at the University of Winnipeg (UW); he has been working for AC as one of our knowledgeable personal trainers for the last year and a half. Brenden has first hand experience understanding the importance of injury prevention, management, strength and conditioning from years of playing hockey himself. Over his academic career he has honed his field skills while working as a student therapist with the UW’s Canadian Interuniversity Sports (CIS) men’ s and women’s wrestling team, UW’s Manitoba Colleges Athletics Conference (MCAC) men’s basketball and the Manitoba Major Junior Hockey League’s (MMJHL) St. Vital Victorias. Brendan has been a great addition to the AC team and we are excited to be part of his evolvement in the rehabilitation and strength and conditioning field.
