You want to see proof, right? 

You want to know that I’ve been able to help people just like you overcome the challenges you have.

Here’s What Some Of My Clients Have To Say:

kathryne-mom-son“When my husband and I decided that we wanted to start a family, I was really excited about it.  A few things also did scare me, such as all the changes my body would be making in order to grow a human.  I knew I was no spring chicken and things might look different after having a baby. 

Nevertheless,  I was up for the challenge of pregnancy and up for the challenge post pregnancy of getting my body back. 

Ivana was a real inspiration. Knowing that she herself had a baby and just a few months later looked like her fabulous self again.  I let her know that I too wanted to accomplish a similar fitness goal. So 4 weeks post pregnancy I started my fitness journey with Ivana’s invaluable guidance. 

She was really knowledgeable on post-pregnancy exercises as well as nutrition.  She also understood that being a mother you are sleep deprived and your schedule is a bit crazy.  So she made my program work for me,  short and sweet! 

With her help I have reached my goal weight and now I am setting a new goal of being the best version of myself.”

Kathryne, 37, Entrepreneur & Flight Attendant, Mom to a 10-month-old boy

hannah-daughter-momI have been working with Ivana since 2016. I have been a part of various boot camps, fitness classes and even tried training on my own but I did not see results like I see results with Ivana. Her knowledge, passion and commitment is beyond any coach I’ve met or know of. The reason why I see results with Ivana is because of 3 reasons: she keeps me accountable with my daily lifestyle eating habits, she knows exactly how I need to train but most importantly her passion. She truly knows the human body, how it works and what works best for you.

I had a serious health concern last year and took a break from training. It was the hardest season of my life. However, Ivana was so patient with my situation and once I felt strong again I began working out and she has helped me physically get back on track. Ivana is flexible, reliable and a great motivator. I cannot imagine life without coaching with Ivana!

“I lost 25lbs since I began following Ivana’s advice and program; but what is even more important for me than the weight loss is that I have been learning a new and proper way to eat and appreciate foods.”

Greg, 46, Father of Two, New York

When I first found out that I was pregnant over a year ago, I had certain expectations for myself. I was a pretty active and relatively fit 37 year old, so I expected that this would continue as my pregnant belly grew. I was inspired by Instagram posts and videos of pregnant mothers exercising and doing amazing things up until the birth of their child. Then reality hit. Working long hours on my feet, early pubic symphysis pain, pregnancy hypothyroidism, borderline gestational diabetes, low blood pressure and a very large baby,lara-mom-daughter that at 20 weeks pregnant I had to stop working out. As a result of all these factors, I had gained a lot more weight than I had ever expected was possible in 9 months!

Once the babymoon phase was over and the groggy haze of no sleep lifted, I found myself not recognizing my postpartum body anymore.  I loved my daughter more than anything, but I felt weak, tired, achy and irritable. The rapid weight loss associated with breastfeeding did not happen for me and as the weeks rolled by my weight did not change. I knew that for both my physical and mental health, I needed to make some changes but had no idea where to start.  In addition to recovering from an unplanned C-Section, I learned that I developed diastasis recti postpartum and knew that I would have to be careful in my postpartum fitness journey.

This was when I reached out to Ivana Chapman for help. She was able to tailor a fitness program for me, adjust my nutrition and keep me motivated through those frustrating days while working with my crazy newborn schedule.  Since starting the program I have lost 30lbs, gained muscle, gained more confidence and repaired my diastasis recti.

The great thing about this program is that it changes the way you think about nutrition and exercise allowing you to make lifestyle changes. As a result I continue to see changes in myself even after completing her program. If you are busy individual, need support but work well independently and are serious about making lifestyle changes, then this is the program for you!

chris-dad-daughterI first met Ivana through my wife. The results I was seeing in my wife allowed me to be motivated to try personal training. I have been active all my life but due to my busy work schedule I never attempted to fit training in.

I began working with Ivana this Spring and have been very happy with how my body is changing. My overall energy and strength have significantly increased since I began.

I am in the medical field and it is refreshing to have a trainer who understands human physiology as well as anatomy. At every session, Ivana is prepared and has a plan set out for me.

I also appreciate Ivana’s commitment to being flexible and ensuring that I get the best out of every session.

stacey-woman-success“From a young age I struggled with my weight. I found out, when I was 22, I had hypothyroidism. I tried everything from shakes for all my meals, to practically starving myself, to trying all the fad exercise diets and plans, seeing doctors, nutritionists and so on. I did lose weight after hardly eating a thing and exercising every day. I was just pounds away from my goal weight when everything imploded. My body started to gain weight after a year of keeping it off. The medical industry just told me to eat less. I was already eating bird size portions.

This lead to a very bad relationship with food that I am still trying to overcome, but it is much easier with Ivana on my side. Since I have been working with her, my weight has gone down consistently. I have energy, feel better about myself and the way I look at food. I look forward to my workouts that she customised for my situation and they are now a time I look forward to, my “me time”. I can’t believe how much good, healthy, protein rich foods a day I’m supposed to eat. It’s yummy food too.

I’m forever grateful to Ivana. She is the only one I trust to look after my health and nutrition. She is supportive, she keeps you motivated and most important she is knowledgeable and will do all she can to help you reach your goals.

Thanks Ivana, your help has meant more to me than you will ever know. I feel in control of my life again and food and me; we’re finally starting to become friends.”

“I worked with Ivana for almost two years and benefited tremendously from her instruction. My overall knowledge around fitness, how to work out, how to eat and generally how to be healthy greatly improved. I exceeded my goals in my first year and have been able to maintain my weight and activity levels for over five years now. I highly recommend working with Ivana!”

Stephen Ellis, 41, Father of Two, Executive Vice President at Infusion Development

“It’s been great! Ivana’s workouts are clear and easy to follow. Nutrition is always the big one, but it’s such individualistic criteria that a blanket instruction won’t cover everyone.

I like how the nutrition changes are gradual and aimed at educating smarter life choices rather than being on “a diet” or a workout plan that usually isn’t sustainable long-term.”

James Brosnahan, Father of a 1-year-old girl, Germany

“Before training with Ivana, I did not exercise regularly or pay much attention to my physical fitness. She trained me from the ground up, teaching me the fundamentals of weight training and nutrition. Over the course of two years, I built significant muscle and lost fat, making me feel more confident and happy.”

Miller Peterson, 36, Full Stack Engineer at OANDA Corporation – Toronto, Canada

“I’ve worked with Ivana for years and believe she is one of the best and most effective coaches available. Ivana listens to my needs and goals and then puts together customized workout and nutrition programs that are innovative, challenging and backed up with sound science. Whenever I thought I could not do something she convinced me I could with equal parts encouragement and bullwhip (and she was always right!)”

Stephen McPherson, International Investment Banker and M&A Specialist – Kitchener, Canada

“Ivana is the real deal. She taught me how to train differently and safely, but more importantly how to make it enjoyable and incorporate it into my lifestyle. For that, I can’t thank her enough!”

“One of the best decisions I made this year was to work with Ivana.  Although I was going to the gym regularly, I knew I was not getting the most out of my workouts.  I was lucky to find Ivana, who quickly put me on the right track.  Now, I look forward to my time at the gym.  Ivana has also provided me with great diet-related information.  Family and friends have noticed a difference.  I have recommended Ivana to others and would work with her again without hesitation.”

Lyle, 41, Toronto, Canada

ryan-lifting-testimonial“Ivana is an amazing person and her training programs are phenomenal to say the least. She has guided me through some of the most intense training regimes for high level sport including Rugby Union and National Aerobatic Flying! Ivana can and will help you succeed at your goals- the only thing you need is the motivation and drive to achieve. Ivana is not just a Personal Trainer…she is a life coach! Thanks Ivana.”

Alim-testimonial-image“When I started working out with Ivana I hadn’t been doing any type of consistent physical exercise since High School gym class. At the time I was traveling a lot, not eating well, sedentary and dealing with the stress of a busy life. Ivana taught me and worked me hard and pushed me far beyond any limits I thought I had. Over time physical fitness became a regular part of my life. I had the confidence to work out on my own and not only did my health improve, but I found that my stress level also fell.

Thank you Ivana for getting me on track.”

Alim Somani, 40, Father of Three, Seasoned Executive & Entrepreneur – Markham, Canada

pam-woman“Ok, so I’ve got an important meeting this morning and I dug out my smart trousers. I bought them for a conference I did in October and they were so tight that when I sat down they gave me a stomach ache. Haven’t worn them since!

This morning I thought I’d try them out and they not only fit but there’s a bit of room. Now that’s a good start to the morning.

High five Ivana!!!”
