Blaine Podaima, CSCS

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

I grew up as an overweight kid and struggled with my weight for the first two decades of my life.  This painful struggle left me feeling frustrated, confused, and depressed.

It was not until I stumbled upon world famous strength and conditioning coach Charles Poliquin that I was finally able to beat my weight problem once and for all.  He taught me a simple system that uses weight training for rapid weight loss. 

Through years of experimentation with myself and hundreds of clients I was able to tweak his system to be more efficient and less rigid to better suit people over 40…the end result is my weight loss system called Transform 40.

This system has allowed me to lose over 50 pounds myself and is responsible for hundreds of clients losing thousands of pounds.  The best part is you don’t have to give up your life, spend endless hours in the gym, or starve yourself for rapid weight loss results.

Joelle Collette


Hi my name is Joelle Collette, I am a personal trainer from Winnipeg but I was born in small town in St. Jean Baptiste, Manitoba.

At the age of 18 I was involved in a serious accident where I was the passenger in a accident that involved alcohol.  I was in a coma for 3 days and they weren’t sure if I was going to live.  I luckily managed to survive but had to learn how to re-walk and talk through months of therapy.  This brain injury also left me with seizures that I had to get surgery on and some of the effects I still have to deal with to this day.

This life changing event left me with serious self esteem issues and depression as I struggled to do things that I once had taken for granted.

I decided to take up weight training to help with my self esteem and depression and was immediately hooked.  Although I was nervous I decided to compete in a local bodybuilding event and ended up placing third. Since then fitness is a huge part of my life and has helped me immensely both mentally and physically.

I like to share my passion for health and fitness with everyone I know and would love to help you next!  Fill out the form on this website to set up a free 15 minute consultation.
