Hi, I’m . Doug Setter, BSc.
and welcome to my home page. My mission is to teach you the exercises, nutrients and strategies to build yourself to be stronger, happier and healthier. I have trained for years in different health systems and have taught hundreds of people courses in Stomach Flattening, Kick-boxing, outdoor skills and self-defense.
I am the author of Stomach Flattening, Reduce Your Alcohol Craving, One Less Victim (a crime victim prevention guide) and the novel, Selo. I was born with a club foot and had pneumonia three times by the age of six. As an underweight teenager, I learned about the problems of bullying and intimidation. By constantly studying and training, I was able to build myself up from 115 pounds to 155 pounds and learn what worked and did not work in self-defense. While in the military, I served as a paratrooper and later as a peacekeeper in Croatia (former Yugoslavia). I trained as a kick-boxer and competed in Hong Kong and later won a Canadian championship (at age 40). At age 39 I did one of the scariest things yet: enter university to earn a science degree in nutrition. After school, the real education began. At 47 years, I climbed Mt. Rainier. At 51 years, I passed the infantry warrant officer’s course in New Brunswick.
I have made many training mistakes along the way and want to spare you those problems. Though my clients have ranged from 10 to 80 years old, my focus is on 35 years and older, “mid-life” people.
Fitness is far more than just muscle and cosmetics. It is about living closer to your potential and enjoyment. It is about having a healthy, resilient mind, body and ego and not merely existing. I have some great, hard found , information for increasing your energy, removing bad habits, turning back the clock and protecting yourself.
