Can-Pro Athletic Trainers

BJ Duffin, NSCA CPT

My name is BJ Duffin. Hockey and fitness has always been my passion. Growing up in Red Deer, I was privileged to progress through the Red Deer Minor Hockey Association. I played Midget AAA for coach Doug Quinn from 2010-2012 where I was fortunate to be a part of the 2012 Telus Cup National Championship team. After Midget, I played for the Olds Grizzlys of the Alberta Jr Hockey League (AJHL) and was named captain in 2013. I am currently playing NCAA hockey at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. During my first year at Wisconsin- Stevens Point, we were able to win the NCAA National Championship.

In 2016 I became a Certified Personal Trainer with the National Strength and Conditioning Association. I am passionate about exercise science and sports nutrition. I am an advocate for mobility and functional training and understand the importance of incorporating it into athlete programming. I believe in strong attention to detail in applying an individualized approach to each athlete. I love seeing athletes realize their full potential, reach personal goals and make it to the next level.



Mac Engel

I grew up a product of the Red Deer Minor Hockey system I was fortunate enough to play for Doug Quinn and Al Parada on the midget AAA Telus cup national finalist team in 2010. I then went on to play 4 years in the WHL for the Spokane Chiefs, Prince George Cougars and the Regina Pats as a starting goalie where I played 133 games and made it to the conference finals my first year. After hockey I began coaching with Trevor Sprague and the Prince George midget AAA macs midget national tournament champions 14/15. I have been working out at can pro since I was 14 and it has helped succeed throughout my junior career with its top notch equipment, facility and trainers which allowed me to focus on my specific training for hockey.

Christie Brett

My name is Christie Brett. I am 28 years old. I am a certified personal training specialist through Canfitpro. I started training at Can Pro in preparation for my first Muay Thai amateur fight back in June 2012. I would not have had the conditioning or the endurance I needed to win that fight if I had not found a facility, like Can Pro, that caters to athletes who are looking to be pushed that extra mile.

Today, I am fortunate enough to be able to train my own clients in this facility. What I like most about Can Pro is the atmosphere. The staff are friendly and accommodating, not intimidating like many other gyms. There is a variety of equipment. My clients feel comfortable training here and that is extremely important to me.
