Steffan Shelemey - CPT, CES
Steffan Shelemey is a personal fitness trainer. In 2011, Steffan earned his Personal Training diploma through NAIT. With this diploma, he became certified as a Personal Trainer by the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology (CSEP). His education also certified him as a Corrective Exercise Specialist via the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM).
Steffan has worked in both the public and private side of the fitness industry. Settling into his own business for the past four years at a private studio in downtown Edmonton, he is now bringing his expertise to Evolve Strength where, he believes, he will be able to elevate his clients and future clients to the highest standards in fitness.
“If I were to build a fitness facility, I would copy the Evolve template. Evolve is the ideal platform for my personal training. I’m very excited to work with a team of highly educated and experienced people in a facility with first-rate equipment.”
Steffan’s approach to fitness is all about getting results fast. If you sign up with him you can expect this to be his main focus with you:
1. Becoming Pain Free
2. Improving Range of Motion (ROM) at all major joints
3. Improving Posture
4. Developing excellent Movement Mechanics
5. Developing Basic Strength Overall
6. Incorporating an appropriate Cardiovascular Plan
7. Incorporating an appropriate Nutrition Plan according to your goals
8. Incorporating appropriate Sleeping Patterns
“Once the client has mastered the basics, the client will then be ready to pursue the goals they are most interested in. Ironically, it will be this basic work that gets them 90% of the way there. I’m here to show and teach people that.”
Steffan is a good fit for clients who have these goals in mind:
- losing body fat
- building strength
- building muscle mass
- learning how to lift weights properly and safely
- advanced lifting technique
- making a lifestyle change
- moving better/feeling better
- becoming pain free and learning how the body functions physically
“I will work with anyone whether they are just beginning their fitness journey or are many years in. Most importantly though, I’m looking to train people with a positive mental attitude and the want to learn. If you make positivity and learning a priority in your pursuit of a goal, all that will remain is the action, the training - and I can teach you everything you’ll need to know when it comes to that.”

“I’ve trained consistently with Steffan for almost two years now and over that time have seen tremendous results. Since starting, I’ve lost almost 50lbs of fat and increased my strength by over 100%. From my experience, Stefan provides a personalized approach and training programs tailored to your individual needs and delivers healthy lifestyle mentorship beyond the gym walls. He’s knowledgeable, dedicated, accommodating, and fun to work with to reach your goals.” - Michael P.
“I met Steffan at an X-Weighted Connect conference where CustomFit was a sponsored supporter. Steffan walked up to me and offered his expertise with my pain management issues. I was surprisingly enthused and relieved by Steffan’s confident approach. So I began working with Steffan in early 2011 to begin a program which he had designed for me to relieve my pain and begin strength training. I began once a week with Steffan and worked up from there. I found my pain lessening to where it was totally disappearing and have found many improvements since then. The relationship between trainer and client has grown to a comfortable friendship and I value it. I will continue my workouts for as long as I can.” - Priscila M.
“I’ve been training with Steffan since the fall of 2012, after having been with another trainer for three years before that. When Steffan and I started, I was having pain in my back and shoulders, was not very flexible, and did not move very well. During the first six months, Steffan helped me understand how to improve my movement and flexibility, which reduced my susceptibility to injury, and helped me resolve the issues I was having with my back and
shoulders. Since then, we have continued to build on what I achieved in the first six months, and he’s encouraged me to continue to pursue my fitness goals. He uses his own fitness as an example of what his clients have the potential to achieve. His ability to motivate, combined with an excellent understanding of musculoskeletal physiology and body biomechanics, provides a high quality training environment where any dedicated client has the opportunity to succeed.” - David S.
“I have found by having Steffan Shelemey as my personal trainer, I am inspired to make a commitment to my entire health. I enjoy the variety of workouts and appreciate how Steffan is always changing the program to accommodate my personal achievements. I’m never bored and always challenged. Steffan’s knowledge of fitness gives me the
confidence to trust in the program he sets out for me. I have experience growth in my strength and I am motivated to keep improving on my cardio. I am very satisfied with the results I am achieving. Steffan is also very helpful with nutrition and simplifying methods to help implement healthier eating habits. He really cares about his clients entire health progress. I would truly recommend Steffan as a personal trainer for anyone who is serious about improving their fitness level.” - Sandra S.
“Never have I had such a great personal training experience. Steffan is the cornerstone to my fitness regime. Without his tough love, I’d still be out of shape and terrified of the gym.” - Bretton W.
“Steffan is a skilled personal fitness trainer. Training with him is a fantastic experience. I appreciate that he provides me with an opportunity to focus on safely developing my strength, balance, and energy. Steffan is passionate about helping his clients succeed to the best of their ability. Caring and careful, he is sincerely committed to motivating and challenging us to be in top shape and live an active life.” - Darline S.
“In the past, I belonged to the YMCA and joined in the fitness classes. I also have weights and exercise equipment at home. I was surprised to learn how much more effective exercise became with coaching from a professional personal trainer. Steffan has helped me build up muscle in my shoulders and legs which has eliminated the chronic shoulder and knee pain I suffered with years before. He has helped me improve my nutrition and my sleep as well. Every week, I look forward to my training session with Steffan.” - Paul S.
"Right from the start, Steffan has been thorough in teaching me the proper methods for all exercises, which made a huge difference in my ability to perform the exercises confidently, comfortably, and safely. His strategic and goal- oriented workouts have ensured me results in as little as 1-2 workouts /week. He has taught me the power of consistency, tracking progress and goal settings to get results, especially when it comes to nutrition. I feel comfortable working with Steffan because he listens well to my needs and designs my workouts for me. He is compassionate towads injuries and set backs and helps you work through these via alternate workouts and mental coaching. No matter what, I can count on Steffan to "be there" every moment of the workout to motivate me and help me through each exercise. Steffan exemplifies passion for fitness and a healthy lifestyle and is keen to help me navigate through my fitness journey to reach my full potential.” - Ginger M.
“Steffan is a caring, responsible trainer. He designs plans that are safe, challenging, and provides a program that will help you to achieve whatever athletic goals you have. He always comes on time and is well prepared. He is always positive and upbeat. He pays close attention to form to ensure there are no injuries on his watch. His commitment to have an injury free session is important to me. In fact, he has worked hard to cure the injuries I have from my other athletic activities. I would recommend Steffan to those who are as committed as he is to their own personal fitness. Whether your goal is to stay in shape, become stronger, or train for an event, he will design a program to assist you in reaching your goal. I always leave my session glad that I came and pumped up for whatever life throws at me.” Christina I.
