Misty Shearer

To meet her is to know her - what you see is what you get.  Misty pulls no punches and provides all the skill, support and direction anyone would need to succeed in their goals in the gym.  Misty is one of a handful of women in North America who holds a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and is undeniably the most decorated Kettlebell Sport competitor in Canada. 

  

Misty spent 18 years in the Canadian Armed Forces as a Military Police Officer and a Combat Engineer.  She was the first Non-Commissioned female in Canada to receive her status as a Combat Diver - an elite designation that requires some of the greatest skill and determination anyone in the Armed Forces can muster.  Misty is still a casual Paramedic with the City of Edmonton - taking lives in the gym, saving lives on the street.  ;)

Being married to a police officer, Misty has a soft spot for people in the process with the Edmonton Police Service or other police agencies.  Misty has had a hand in training and physically preparing several police officers who are currently in the process with EPS and who are currently on the street here in Edmonton. 


Misty has competed at local, provincial, national and international levels in sports such as rugby, broomball, wrestling, kickboxing and boxing, to name a few.  Most recently, Misty has competed internationally in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Kettlebell Sport.  Don't let her tough-as-nails exterior fool you.  Misty has one of the biggest hearts in the business.  She'll give you everything she's got to make sure you are the best you can be. Your success is her success.
