Simon grew up in Gatineau. While he played hockey for most of his childhood, he was always trying something new. From baseball, soccer, golf, basketball (even though he’s a tall midget), he played it all and gained valuable skills in teamwork and leadership.
He discovered his first CrossFit class on September 20th, 2012 and has never looked back. His natural abilities in technique have afforded him a quick progression from beginner in 2012 to become ranked in the Top 50 Canada East Region in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
He surpassed his own goal in 2018 to become ranked in the Top 20 Canada East Region by finishing an impressive 18th Place.
He is an endeared CrossFit Coach who specializes in weightlifting and basic gymnastics which are the foundation and focus of technique corrections at CrossFit 819.
Members have the privilege of receiving his coaching methods through his role as Lead CrossFit Programmer at PhysXtreme.
