He works with weights, calisthenics, Electro Muscle Stimulation, and High-Intensity-Interval-Training (HIIT) for peak conditioning and is passionate about nutrition especially related to lifestyle diseases (diabetes, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome etc).

“Whatever your goal is, it is about finding an emotionally compelling reason why you want to do it, why you must do it, and why you will do it! It is about taking responsibility for the authorship of our stories and having stewardship over our internal lives. You do not want to push yourself to do something because pushing implies going against resistance. What you want is a pulling reason, that will pull you towards achieving the desired outcome especially in the times when you do not want to do it. This is what flow is”. As an advocate for paradigm shifts in health and thinking, Gary’s purpose is to change lives by leading through an example of what is possible through transformation. “Transformation is 80% mental or mind over matter, and the other 20% is just doing it. The most important thing I learned on my own fitness and health journey was that reality can be warp according to our will and that if you want something bad enough, you will find a way to make it happen no matter what impediments and obstacles may come in your way.”

Carol Bill

Trainer / Group Instructor

Carol’s passion for sports and movement has been present throughout her whole life. Everything started on the icefield where she was part of the figure skating junior team. ‘’Jump high in order to reach the sky’’ was the motto. Therefore, explosive, reactive and power strength played an important role. Balance, stability, body control and movement have now become the main elements in her daily training sessions.

She was able to develop them, even more, when she became a dancer and dancing teacher (jazz dance, ballet, street dance, Latin American dances). It requires a lot of flexibility, coordination and a good body feeling – and the best thing: it just makes you happy!

Happiness is one of the most important components to her in life and brought her to the point where she’s now: at Atlas Transformation.

During the last few years, she had already been working part-time as passionate Fitness, Group Fitness (HIIT, AthleticFlow (HIIT & Yoga), Bootcamp, Bodypump, Bodyshape etc.) and Personal Trainer. Working together with people, motivating them to achieve their goals and just make them feel good, has made her every day. That’s why she decided to quit her main job in the financial sector last summer 2017 and fully focus on her clients. Being able to see all these big-smile- happy-faces after a great and sweaty workout session were more than worth it. Being part of the Atlas Transformation’s approach to evolving every client’s wellbeing, corresponds exactly with her ideal training philosophy and makes her a proud member of the team.
