My name is Diego Such and I am a registered Kinesiologist and a certified Clinical Exercise Physiologist. I grew up in the Comox Valley for the majority of my life before moving to Victoria to pursue high-performance sports and my kinesiology degree.
Due to living on the North Island for the majority of my life, I have a large passion for staying active and doing as much outdoors as possible. While my time in Victoria has been relatively short I am proud to say that while living here I have been able to represent Team BC for the sport of Olympic Weightlifting the past three years in a row all while maintaining a near-perfect GPA while attending Camosun College. Due to my high level of academic and practical knowledge, I am very competent when it comes to understanding how the body works and moves, how to train it for your goals, how to best get you on the right path for success, and a variety of science-based topics such as advanced exercise physiology, biomechanics, anatomy, and psychology.
Some examples of my favourite work that I have done at Camosun would be helping run a fitness assessment clinic for older adults, working on case studies associated with a variety of chronic diseases, doing a presentation on exercising with Parkinson’s, and writing a paper on how exercise benefits those with heart failure. I am extremely passionate about the body’s rehabilitation process and the process of how to make someone stronger/fitter and am looking forward to helping you with whatever your personal goals may be.
