Jerret Laycock.

In 2013, Jerret received his Bachelor of Sciences Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Acadia University. While at Acadia, he played Football for four years in multiple positions, helping the Axmen win back to back AUS championships! Jerret says being a staff member at Blended reminds him of the same type of teamwork necessary to be a great or championship caliber team. It takes trust, communication, commitment, and a lot of passion and grit. He has always been a big team player and is certainly proud to be a part of such a driven and hard-working team at Blended Athletics.

Jerret uses a wide variety of skills and techniques he learned throughout his strength and conditioning experience, athletic career, and nutrition degree, to create a safe and challenging training environment for anyone. He puts an early emphasis on mobility drills and unilateral exercises to develop a stable foundation for the long term athletic development towards greater body control, speed, and power production. Jerret constantly preaches the importance of nutrition and believes it is a crucial component to continued progress and helps achieve any physical goal. Jerret would say he is a great coach for the beginner and the experienced athlete alike.

Jerret’s pursuit of excellence is to never stop learning to become a great and wise mentor, coach, and athlete. He is driven by the constant need to grow and learn new skills that he can share with his clients and colleagues. Jerret has found that progress is like climbing a mountain - It is never easy, so you need to stay focused. There is always a chance to stumble and slide backwards, but the higher you continue to climb, the sweeter the view when you stop to look!

Testimonials.

 

The overall experience is fantastic,  Jerret is upbeat everyday and always organized in his planning of our workouts.

- Brad Sullivan

I am a professional MMA fighter and I had a few muscular imbalances when I first started. Jerret has helped me to almost completely eliminate the shoulder problems I have had as well as my weak ankle, which was also a chronic problem. The overall experience is fantastic,  Jerret is upbeat everyday and always organized in his planning of our workouts. I have notice considerable strength changes especially when applied to my sport. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to get better quality of life or if you need any imbalances corrected.

His tips for healthy eating and drinking have completely changed the way I think about nutrition.

- Evan G. Age 14

For a die-hard soccer player that I am, moving up to play at the under 15 AA level, I still felt as if my size and strength wasn’t quite as what it should be. So a relative of mine who knew Jerret recommended him and long story short, still awaiting my major growth spurt I feel so much more confident in holding my ground on the field against a lot of bigger guys my age. Then during the sessions he pushes me when he knows I still have a bit more in me and encourages me to keep going on multiple routines. I recommend Jerret to everyone for his positive attitude, and he always answers any questions you may have (don’t hold back I have loads that he has answered for me to help me understand each question I may have) and for his awesome pointers in each exercise to help you get better every day!

I am a strength and conditioning coach with a background in martial arts and board sports (skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing).

Personal Trainer

Maggie Henderson

My philosophy for training is that it should be fun and functional. There’s nothing I enjoy more than being part of someone’s journey as  they grow to love the gym and their workouts. I believe everyone can  benefit and most importantly enjoy working out once they’ve found the  right environment for them.
