Updated: November 12, 2023
Welcome to Athletic Endeavours! I’m Andrew Tuovinen. For nearly 30 years, I’ve shared my deep experience as a professional personal trainer, endurance multi-sport and cycling coach, and HIIT training specialist, with athletes and non-athletes of all ages and abilities. No matter where you’re starting from, I’m here to help you improve your fitness capacity, become stronger, lose weight, or train for endurance events in 2024.
I’m happy to see a return of our regular fall weather pattern where one or two rain storms pass through Vancouver each week. It’s great for our beautiful street trees and forests but for endurance athletes, these fall storms signal an end to long days in the saddle, leisurely summer ocean swims, and long trail runs. The fall and winter seasons are focused on maximizing off-season fitness through regular strength and HIIT training. This fall and winter I can set you on course to perform at your best come next spring and summer.
I currently offer two group functional strength HIIT classes each week. Affectionately titled “The Hour of Power” (HOP), this class is held Mondays evenings from 6:00-7:00pm, outdoors but undercover; and on Thursday mornings from 6:30-7:30am, indoors at Cadence Fitness Studio. Experience a wide range of fitness training tools and methods at these classes.
Meanwhile, two of my group HIIT classes –Swimming HIIT and Cycling HIIT– are on hold until the new year, but I’ll continue to hold my Running HIIT sessions on Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:00pm either on the track at Point Grey or on the trails in the UBC endowment lands. Join this group of weather-proof runners for some fun and quality HIIT.
Some of you may want to want a bit more personal attention when it comes to actualizing your off-season strength potential. With over 30 years experience and countless hours in the gym, I can create a progressive program guaranteed to invigorate, inspire and empower you to become your best!
Finally, for all cyclists and endurance athletes looking for a means to achieving a big goal, I’ve posted dates for my Penticton Camps for 2024. These include a return of my three annual camps: the Spring Cycle Camp, Summer Cycle Camp, the Multi-Sport Endurance Camp; as well as a new Fall Cycle Camp, where the hard training of earlier season camps makes way for some joyous Okanagan fall riding with a group of friends you’ve just met.
