MEET OUR KLEINBURG TRAINERS
Nat Levy – Studio Director
Born and raised in Toronto, Natanel’s deep roots in the fitness and rehab industry extend far beyond his passion for healthy living and training. Nat’s father, Isaac Levy, is a celebrity trainer in Toronto who has been in the business of training and rehab for over 20 years. Isaac has worked with many stars and professional athletes, throughout Nat’s life.
Nat has been participating in sports from a very young age, focusing most of his extra- curricular activities in hockey and golf. His education comes from a culinary background which has been very useful in fulfilling his passions. Do not be fooled, a culinary artist is not only useful in the kitchen, or for nutritional advice. Nat has a strong eye for details, it is what made him successful during his education, and this made him particularly meticulous about the philosophy he wanted to portray at Inklein to others. For Nat, his heart was surrounded by the health industry; watching his father help others became a passion of his own.
He uses a hands-on approach throughout his sessions, with a lifestyle twist making this experience one of the most unique in the training industry. It is one of the major reasons why Inklein is a far cry from your typical personal training gym.

He joined our team to bring individuals the joy of feeling good about themselves. David uses a weight training style in the gym but incorporates a high-intensity pace when needed.
