Winnipeg Personal Trainer

Meet The Team

Hi, my name is Blaine Podaima, I am a personal trainer from Winnipeg with over 20 years experience and the owner of Podaima Performance.

I have opened a brand new exclusive, members only gym that helps busy professionals over 40 lose weight training only twice per week.  The gym is unique in that it is members only and by appointment only, with a maximum of 4 people training at once in a 3,000 square foot gym. 

I am extremely proud to say that we train some of Winnipeg's most prominent, successful, and well known people. CEO's, lawyers, doctors, and everything in between. It's really humbling that people in such positions have come to us for help, guidance, and knowledge in getting them healthy, back in shape, and back to feeling great about themselves! In fact, chances are you probably currently know someone who is working with us at this very moment!

Ally Plett, PTS

Trainer

Hey, my name is Ally! I am a Canfitpro Certified Personal Trainer and Nutritionist. I am excited to be a part of the team at Podaima Performance.

A little about me: I grew up in Steinbach, MB. I grew up playing sports: Figure Skating, Soccer, Badminton, Volleyball, Beach Volleyball, Basketball, Track and Field, and Women’s Tackle Football. I’ve always loved health + fitness, and knew that I wanted to work in the Fitness Industry in some capacity.

In High School, I struggled with emotional eating and, therefore, struggled with my weight. In grade 12, I knew I needed to make a change, so I started a weight lifting and nutrition plan. I ended up losing 70lbs, by working out 6-7x/week and sticking with my Meal Plan. I have had a gym membership ever since, and have been able to maintain my weight since 2015.

In 2018, I got my Personal Training Certification and have since obtained certifications in: Power Eating, Nutrition, Fit Pregnancy, Kettlebells, TRX, Power Core,

I am passionate about helping people reach their goals! I look forward to working with you and helping you become the best version of you!

Zachary Carpenter, Bachelor Of Kinesiology

Trainer

 Hi, my name is Zachary!  I have played various competitive sports since around age 6. Throughout middle and high school, I predominantly played football, rugby and volleyball. In my young adult life, I have competed in bodybuilding competitions through the Manitoba Amateur Bodybuilding Association and continue to play competitive football for the St. Vital Mustangs. It was around age 13 I began to develop a deeper passion for health and fitness as I sought out to improve my physical abilities in the sports I play(ed). 

Most of my knowledge regarding training experience is geared towards creating programs that establish foundational strength, functional strength, hypertrophy,  power output, improve anaerobic and aerobic fitness, weight loss as well as athletic performance. I have approximately 5 years of experience creating training and nutrition programs as a hobby for family and friends and have yielded highly successful transformations towards their health and fitness goals.

Ryan

"My name is Ryan Podaima and I am 38 years old. I asked my older brother Blaine for help because I needed some serious help with my weight! I have never worked out before or dieted before this and I lost 60 pounds in 5 months! Not only that my physical conditioning improved big time!

To tell you the truth it really wasn't that difficult. The first week was a little tough to get used to everything, but once I got into the groove it was pretty easy and the best part is that the weight seemed to just keep flying off of me.
I never really had a problem with my weight before, but in the last few years it creeped up on me. I didn't really think things were as bad as they were until I looked at a picture from a recent event. I was shocked at the way I looked and decided to call my brother for help.

Of course I may be biased in my recommendation for my brother, but you cannot argue with the pictures. If he can help me, then I'm sure he can help almost anyone out there!"

"Working with Blaine has been the best investment I've made into myself.

What started as a substantial weight loss goal, this journey has produced strength, lean muscle, great skin and my weight loss goal!! At 46, I'm in the best shape of my life.

Blaine is pretty amazing. He has kept me motivated while pushing me when I've needed it. He is very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable."

CHAD

"I was always a very active kid and played a lot of sports growing up, weight was never really an issue for me. Once life started to take over with all of my other responsibilities I found myself not being as active and of course eating more.

Over the years this took its toll and I accumulated over 80 pounds of fat and no longer felt comfortable or was happy about what I let myself happen to me. One day I decided enough was enough and give Blaine a call to help me lose weight as I have known others that he has helped lose weight and get their life back as well.

I decided to follow the program by the book and the results were better than anything I could have imagined! The weight just seemed to keep flying off, every time I stepped on the scale I was down more weight…and the best part is that I was never hungry! I ended up losing 80 pounds of fat in a little over 4 months and I couldn't be happier! Seriously if you need help losing weight then give Blaine a call…you won't regret it!!"
