 There are many personal trainers in the world who work with the general population on all levels of fitness; however, very few work with the special needs population. 

About Joël”s Fitness


         My name is Joël Lascelle, I am a Personal Fitness Specialist and a Social Services Worker.  A Certification in Adaptive Fitness has increased my knowledge and ability to effectively train individuals with disabilities.  I have founded and licensed JoëlsFitness with my services being offered at the NavFit facilities, Nav Canada.

         I have been involved with a special needs family member since I was 4 years old. My youngest brother suffered a brain injury at birth and is living with cerebral palsy. The injury primarily affected his body movements, muscle coordination & caused developmental delays.  The experience of growing up with my disabled brother, working as a social worker and being a fitness professional made me realize the importance of people with disabilities getting involved and maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.  I also work towards promoting social integration, equality and eliminating stereotypes.
