Testimonials From Our Clients.
Interesting thing happened after playing [key board] for about an hour today ... my left elbow began hurting, as it often does, but this time, I could feel that it was coming DIRECTLY from that little pebble in my left shoulder (I've been calling it that because that's what it feels like in there). I've never felt that direct line before, so I could tell exactly where it was coming from. I don't know what that means, but I can't tell you how gratifying it is to know that this is all connected!! That I don't just have a bunch of random injuries.
Another thing I meant to tell you today. Why it's been putting me in a better mood seeing you and getting treatment, even though it may not be feeling better yet, at least you have been able to tell me "Yes, this is the problem." And, more importantly, "Yes, it can be fixed." Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE I've asked about my arm pain, including physio, massage therapists, and chiropractors, have said they didn't know what was wrong, or that it's "just one of those things." Which was, of course, INCREDIBLY frustrating. Not just because it still hurt, but because there was no forward progress I could make.
My catch-phrase from the last few years has always been, "I am a young person in good health, why would this be hurting me?" And even though it's still a fair degree of discomfort, it's INCREDIBLE to know that I'm not just forever f***ed. So, that's that. But I'm sure you get that all the time ... !!
Sevrin has it dialed in, knowing exactly what each individual person's needs are and what your body is calling for. I'm 44 years old with decade's of back pain and many injuries but it literally only took a few sessions and some exercises at home and I am a new man...Completely Pain free for over a year now and enjoying mountain biking again in Nelson BC like I'm a kid again.
I've been getting comments on my perfect form at the gym. Even my new trainer has taken a video of me doing lunges to show the difference in the gluts activation when done correctly. Thought I should give you credit for the technique :)
I thought I would take a moment to talk about how much you and your work has affected my life. It all started about 10 years ago, which says a lot on its own I think. Back then you, were one of the coaches on the wresting team I was practicing with. I had never really been a fan of gym class at school, but wresting at your gym was fun…I never thought I’d have so much fun getting my butt kicked haha.
You got me started on my first workout programs…even though I was lazy at first and didn’t always stick to it as often as I should have, I ended up retaining what I had learned years down the road because you always explained everything in detail. You always explain what you’re doing and why. You have always come off as professional and smart.
Now, years later…you’re a whole new trainer. I love that you have always kept learning, and are always thinking outside the box. Every time I come to you with a problem, you know how to fix it. Even when you aren’t sure, you find out. You aren’t the typical hard ass trainer that every new person starting his or her fitness journey is afraid of. You start from the basics making sure everything is working properly before advancing on to more complex exercises. That attribute as a trainer is very respectable. You are able to train elderly people with delicate rehabilitation issues, and people like me who can who handle a beat down.
I truly believe that every person who makes the smart decision to invest in your services will not regret it. Satisfaction guaranteed!! Thanks so much for teaching me how to be aware of my body, and how to exercise hard but safely. This knowledge will last a lifetime…glad I invested.

I'm finally back into (semi) daily exercise since being back from tour and into a new routine, and once again feeling soooo good. I realized today that learning and adopting these exercises was easily one of the top 5 BEST things I've ever done for myself in my life. I feel so STRONG after I finish them :)
I can throw punches while standing on an exercise ball!
So stolked about it.
I over stretched my glutes & hamstrings for the last 15 years and am so greatful to Sevrin Baker, for his support with the Chek Body alignment system. I am now working on strengthening my stabilizers in the whole pelvic region, and it is changing my life, my physical experience of being in my body. Awesome, difficult, and so rewarding!
Hi just wanted to let you know that I did a trip to Calgary driving myself and for the first time ever it didnt hurt me. A bit stiff was all I got. I feel great!
Today someone who worked at the gym asked me if i was a pilates INSTRUCTOR!! hahaha!! Really though, my pipes are massive.
Sevrin has this amazing way of making you feel totally calm and comfortable, as well as having magic hands and making you feel fantasic when you leave.
So I am walking home with two heavy grocery bags, one in each hand, and I realize it feels a lot like the Levator Scapula; it feels like the same kind of stretch along my lower neck, upper shoulders.
So I roll my shoulders back and draw my shoulder blades together, and all of a sudden I feel this looooong muscle right down the entire length of my back activate to take over the weight of my groceries. Amazing.
I have been working with Sevrin for two months now, and it is going great. He is wonderful to work with, and is attentive and committed to my success. He pushes me out of my comfort zone and towards my goals. I am feeling great and have started to noticing positive changes, and im very happy with the experience so far. I am excited to continue working with him.
Sevrin! How the hell did my arms get so toned?? Is that another lovely little perk of NEVER doing excruciating weight lifting??
