many others, I have been a member of Weight Watchers too many
times, been on Atkins, lost the weight and gained it back,
and tried many programs, and knew I needed to find the right
way to take care of my health. I know now how to eat for my
body type, have learned to enjoy the things I like in moderation
and know that it is imperative that I train smart not just
log in hours of non-effective exercise. To date I have lost
30 lbs. and a total of 6" and have gone from a size 16
to a 14 and in some items a size 12."
Stephanie O., North Vancouver
had a goal to lose 10 lbs. and lost close to 20. I lost 3
inches off my waist and hips. I found the program very informative
Peter M., North Vancouver
learned a great deal from the program. I have been a forever
dieter and hated dieting because I was always cranky and felt
deprived. I could last X number of weeks and then I would
go back to eating to satiate myself. Then along came your
diet and I added fat and butter to my diet. The increase in
fat has left me feeling satiated and I don't crave sweets.
I also have cut out all snacking and I have lost 10 lbs."

program is one of a kind, our instructor, Curb is a great
motivator. My lifestyle has changed in the past 5-6 weeks,
I sleep much better and my energy level has reached the clouds.
I'm not sleepy after lunch anymore which definitely helps
with my workload. I have a better understanding of the foods
I eat and grocery shopping has become much easier and more
exciting. I now know and understand how much more energy is
used for the wrong food we eat. Thanks a lot Curb, your positive
energy definitely helps & motivates!"
Shabi T., North Vancouver
program has opened my eyes to healthy living. I have been
living with IDDM (Type I Diabetes) for 28 years and by following
the guidelines of the program I have decreased my daily insulin
requirements by 33%. Before I started the program I seemed
to be hungry most of the time. Since I have been following
the program my hunger has diminished and I finally feel full
after a meal. I don't need a cup of coffee in the morning
to start my day and my energy level has increased. I feel
like a kid again!"
Laurel W., Vancouver
the increase in my running regimen last year, I began to experience
IT Band Syndrome. It got to the point where I could not even
run for 15 minutes before the pain set in. Both my Massage
Therapist and my Chiropractor (for active release therapy)
were not able to relieve the pain. Thus, I contacted Curb
at Ultrafitness and talked to him about the running pain that
I was experiencing. After an initial assessment, Curb set
up an entire fitness program with my running and fitness goals
in mind. He also introduced me to a foam roller technique
(self myofacial release) which has proven to be my saving
grace. For months now, I have been pain free and in better
shape all around thanks to Curb and his great work!"
Marianne S., Burnaby
training time together has truly been life changing for me!
So much more than I had expected when I walked through the
door over a year ago! (soup cans, chin ups and power lifting
Diane G., Vancouver
been out of the gym for years and apprehensive of weight training
due to a knee injury, I hesitantly signed up for 5 personal
training sessions with Curb, who repeatedly came highly recommended
as thorough, knowledgeable, and with a unique approach. After
5 sessions I feel confident to continue with the very specific
and well balanced program that he has created for me. Curb
is a great teacher and he left me with a detailed understanding
of what it will take to rebuild my strength and support my
knee. I am enjoying the process and am inspired! Many thanks
Darrell M., Vancouver
never really liked the idea of a personal trainer until I
met Curb. He's helped me develop a functional approach to
training that benefits the other sports I do. I like that
he varies the program constantly and puts a lot of focus on
core strength and stability."
Dr. Sue Ironside, D.C., ART, Vancouver
is what personal training is all about; individual attention
and a fitness program that fits your body and your goals.
Through my training with Curb I have finally been able to
increase the strength and stability of an injured knee that
had troubled me for years. He has given me the ability and
knowledge to improve my overall health. Curb is a perfect
balance of knowledge and experience, a true teacher."
Anne-Marie C., Registered Massage Therapist, North
years ago I tore my ACL and had an operation. After months
of rehab I was able to work out again on a regular basis.
Later, certain exercises were causing more knee injuries,
inflammation and instability. After going through a couple
of personal trainers that led only to frustration and further
injury, my husband (a runner who had trained with him) recommended
Curb. Curb, unlike other personal trainers I've had, takes
the time to work out a plan that is specific to your personal
needs, not like an overall "one size fits all formula" that
many of the 'brand' name fitness jocks shove at you. He also
has a deep understanding of the body and is very committed
to education and knowledge. Curb's approach is totally personal
- my knee has greatly improved in strength and agility, while
not ignoring overall body strength and improvement. I am in
much better shape, without any injuries! I am also aware of
what exercises to do and which not to do. If you are lucky
enough to find Curb before finding anyone else, you will most
likely avoid wasted money, frustration and injury."
Sheri S-J, West Vancouver
have been training with Curb for a year and have been extremely
impressed and appreciative of Curb's knowledge, drive and
support. I initially began so as to regain a certain fitness
level to compliment my running but soon realized that it was
a perfect way to pinpoint more sport specific areas which
would be beneficial for the sport I play, Australian Rules
Football. Curb has taken the time to learn a relatively unknown
sport in North America and developed a training program to
suit the demands of that sport. He has also seen the injuries
that can occur playing such a physical game and been of enormous
help in the recovery process, adjusting my training regime
to isolate and rebuild certain muscle groups. I would have
no hesitation recommending Curb and Ultra Fitness to anyone
interested in elevating their fitness level and general sense
of well being."
Rob E., Vancouver
have been training with Curb Ivanic once a week for the past
four months. I initially anticipated a quick 6-week 'pick
me up program' in the hopes of breaking through some plateaus,
getting some new ideas and changing my workouts. Three months
later I am hooked. The advantages of working out with a personal
trainer are endless and I highly recommend Curb. He takes
the time to personalize my program focusing on neglected areas
and helping me to break through some serious plateaus. Having
been a fitness instructor for 8 years, I didn't anticipate
learning as much as I have and seeing as many results as I
have. Curb is very knowledgeable and actively searches out
new exercises and plans my program one month at a time. He
is constantly changing it up thereby we both continue to see
results and maintain current goals. I have never felt so consistently
strong, healthy and fit; no more fat days! I have gained a
lot of strength, dramatically improved my cardio and as a
bonus lost some body fat. His guidance and encouragement to
push me past the point of fatigue has successfully resulted
in another happy client.
