Wesley Williamson

Elevate Owner

Hi there, I’m Wesley Williamson, Owner and Co-Founder at Elevate Training, Health and Wellness.

Born and raised in South Africa I have always had a true passion and desire for the Health and fitness Industry. After graduating in England in 1998, I worked hard on dedicating my time to help people live a healthy lifestyle. Once I became a Certified Personal Trainer in 1999, I knew that fitness was going to be my life.

In 2001 i joined Nuffield Health, one of the leading not-for-profit UK healthcare organisations, who run network of hospitals, medical clinics, fitness and well being clubs and diagnostic units across the UK. Working as a master trainer and mentor, my focus was to teach and make a difference in people’s lives. By 2009 I was running my own flagship location in London as the General Manager, working with over 2000 clients and mentoring over 200 employees. 

In 2011 I decided to expand my knowledge and experience and move to beautiful Vancouver. With the launch of Elevate in 2015, I had finally found a way to live my mission of unleashing people’s potential every single day, and more importantly to be able to work with those who need me most.  

At Elevate it’s not about the amount of time you spend at the gym, but about the quality of the workout. Our ongoing dedication to learn and enhance our skills, is what makes us different from the rest. With the help of our qualified Kinesiologists and onsite physiotherapist we emphasis on proper body form and positioning throughout each session, to ensure injury prevention and workout optimization.



What Elevate’s me

I truly love being around people. Over the last 18 years, I have really enjoyed helping my clients and close friends achieve their personal fitness goals. I love working with beginners to professional athletes and I can honestly say there is nothing more rewarding then helping my clients get back into shape, lose that extra weight or just simply feel better about themselves again. I have an extensive range of experience and knowledge when it comes to most injuries such as knees, shoulders and hips. Why do i know so much about injuries? Because like most of my clients, I have had to deal with those types of injuries in the past myself.

My Philosophy

Some would say it’s simple but I stand by it. “Believe it and you will achieve it”
