Andrew Balodis (Coach Andrew), BA, NASM-CPT, CES, PES is a Strength, Conditioning and Performance Coach based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, and is the owner of TILT Fitness. Andrew works with clients of all ages and physical abilities - from pro/elite athletes and teams to individuals with physical and health challenges. Andrew has been involved in athletics and fitness for most of his life. Andrew played competitive indoor volleyball in high school and university. Andrew then went on to play competitive beach volleyball at the Open/Pro level for 20 years (both in Canada and in the US). Because of injuries sustained over years of training and competition, Andrew sought out a better training approach. Through years of study and experience, Andrew learned that optimizing functional movement is the foundation and key to physical fitness and peak performance. Now retired from competition, Andrew works with others to help them achieve their own optimal “lifestyle athleticism”.
Dr. C. Gus Tsiapalis (Dr. Gus) has been in private practice for over 15 years, serving hundreds of families throughout the Vaughan and greater GTA communities. Dr Gus completed his Bachelor of Science in Biology at Western University and he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in 1995. Dr Gus also is certified to practice Clinical Acupuncture. Dr Gus shares with many people that he didn't choose the field of Chiropractic but rather it chose him, as he was forced to stop playing professional beach volleyball - after being diagnosed with a rare form of metabolic muscular dystrophy. This led him to Chiropractic, which changed his life and has been his passion since. Dr Gus is a motivating and inspirational speaker, providing hundreds of lifestyle-changing and optimal wellness workshops for grade schools, high schools, the City of Vaughan, company and corporate health programs and community groups, churches and sports teams alike. Dr Gus also lives the Chiropractic lifestyle, being blessed with four children all born at home, all unvaccinated and adjusted since birth.
