Fernand Mahoundo

Sports have always been an integral part of my life. I ran track (100-metre and 200-metre sprint) on a national level for 14 years and also played soccer in France. With my passion and training certifications combined, I seek to help YMCA clients meet their goals (weight loss, strength training, cardio). I strive to give clients my all to help them get results and improve their lifestyles, as well as their overall health.

Hooma Sheikh

My mission is to help my clients get to know their bodies better with a combination of corrective exercises, breathing strategies and specialized tools like Stott Pilates and myofascial release with therapy balls to identify the body’s pain points and blind spots, helping to reduce stiffness, cramps, stress, headaches and scars from recent or chronic injuries.

In order to develop an effective and individualized conditioning program for my clients, I focus on the proper mechanics and appropriate regression and progression of functional movement patterns like squats, lunges, rotations, bends and push-and-pull exercises. While designing a program for my clients, I put a strong emphasis on posture alignment, muscle testing and movement screening. Following an evaluation, I select appropriate exercises to keep my clients motivated and safe, while reducing their risk of injury and helping them achieve their goals.
