Hi, I am Doug Setter, trainer and author of Flat Gut After 50 and Strength-Endurance Secrets.  Most of my clients are time-strapped, ambitious professional women. Too often, they are so stressed out with their work and relationships that they neglect themselves. This leads to low energy, low moral and low self-esteem. Yet, when they take charge of their health and well-being, other parts of their life improve as well.

I learned this lesson 14 years ago when I was very reluctant to train another client as I was swamped with work and I had a terminally ill sister in the hospital. Yet, while training this amazing lady, I came to understand that it is not all about weight-loss, cosmetics and the “look-at-me” attitude. It was the self-confidence of accomplishment. My trainee could spring to her feet, perform advanced Pilates moves and complete three minute boxing drills. Later, she told me that she had dropped 50 pounds and her overbearing boyfriend (another 200 pounds) and took up skiing on her own. Her confidence soared as did her work and personal life. And that is why I enjoy training ambitious people like her.
Another group that need confidence are the teens. When school is a daily struggle up the food chain, it helps to have that feeling of self-assurance. This is where outdoor skills and kick-boxing help immensely.

Let me help you take back control of your health, fitness and self-confidence.

In Health,

Coach Doug

With health & fitness, comes a feeling of well-being and self-confidence.  Trust me on this, I know the feeling of being sick, tired and underweight.  Having the ability to jump out of bed in the morning, touch the floor and feel energised all day, undeniably boosts a person’s self-worth, self-esteem and self-reliance.

Furthermore, these health & fitness methods not only restore well-being and strength, reduce alcohol craving and flatten your stomach  but also increase mental focus, calmness and libido.

What’s more, I also like to share the survival tips that I learned while living in the outdoors, freezing temperatures and high-crime areas.  In addition, self-defence and the little known science of navigation and Night Vision.

Another key point is that you can discover natural, low-cost cures for allergies, joint pain, infections, sleeping disorders, depression, indigestion and fatigue.

I served with the Canadian Airborne Regiment and the infantry army reserves where good health & fitness was essential.  For instance, military duty took me to the hottest and coldest

parts of Canada, the Arctic, the U.S.A. and parts of Europe.  Unquestionably, good physical conditioning and training protects a person against fatigue and environmental injuries like heat stroke and hypothermia.

In 1993, I served as an infantry Sergeant on a peacekeeping tour of Croatia (former Yugoslavia).  In this situation, good fitness undoubtedly enabled me to tolerate the long hours of work, isolation and stress.

Additionally, I have trained well over 350 army recruits in fitness, firearms, tactics, First Aid, outdoor, survival and teamwork. Not to mention winter survival, navigation and leadership.

Similarly, as a civilian, I have trained in kick-boxing and competed in Canada and Hong Kong, run full marathons and taught fitness and martial arts.

At this point, I have helped hundreds of health & fitness clients reach their fitness goals and improve their lives, including:

  • Passing military and police fitness tests.

  • Getting stronger, faster and leaner.

  • Competing in martial arts.

  • Giving up pain medicine.

  • Defending themselves.
