LVRG Performance Coaching and Personal Training

Hi I’m Giulio!

I am an athlete and a coach. I love lifting weights and doing jiu-jitsu!

I’m a certified strength, conditioning, and nutrition coach so I can help you with all aspects of your fitness and health goals.

If you want to become a more capable OUTSIDE of the gym then I’m your guy. I’ve worked with all kinds of people who all want to feel better and perform their best outside of the gym from hospital workers, massage therapists and business owners; to first responders, runners, jiujitsu athletes, and professional fighters.

if you want to use your time in the gym to be able to HURT LESS, AND DO MORE outside of the gym: contact me to learn how I can help you make that happen.



Olympic Weightlifting Coach

Areas of Specialty:
- Learning the basics of Olympic Weightlifting
- Strength and Conditioning
- Creating balanced/effective programming for whatever your goals are. 

I have been training in a gym since I was fourteen years old. What originally started as a
way to become more athletic, for my main sport of the time: lacrosse, became a passion for
becoming stronger and helping others. I competed as a powerlifter from the ages of 16-18
and took the sub-junior squat and deadlift records in the 93kg class. I dabbled in
strongman towards the end of my short powerlifting career as well. I found myself not
getting what I wanted out of powerlifting and my main sport was still being a lacrosse
goaltender so I decided to try out Olympic Weighlifting to increase power output. Fast
forward 2 years and I have quit lacrosse in pursuit of hopefully stepping on an
international stage during my lifetime. During 2020 I placed 3rd at junior nationals in
Edmonton, 2nd place at senior provincials, 1st at junior provincials. In 2021 I began my
first year as a senior and placed 3rd at senior provincials. I am also in the process of
completing my Bachelor’s of Sport and Fitness Leadership at Camosun. If there is one
thing I have learned through my 6 years of training experience it’s that the simple things
work and are often overlooked by many.
