Professional Certified Strength Coaches

what the athletes and coaches have to say

“Greg has expanded his skills and repertoire to begin a business working with professional and amateur athletes in strength and conditioning. Greg’s reputation amongst these athletes is second to none and I am Unaware of anybody whose work ethic and commitment to his clients is at the same level as Greg’s. Greg has worked each year updating his skills and training to be current and conducts many seminars and education sessions teaching others the skills he has developed over the years. Greg’s reputation as a Strength and Conditioning coach is unparalleled in the area.”

Jameel Aziz – Vice Principle, Brocklehurst Secondary

Greg loves teaching and this is evident in the way he approaches his teaching assignment. He is meticulous in his planning, organizes activities far ahead of the implementation date, sets reasonable goals for his students and consistently follows up when students have not met the class expectations. He has an excellent rapport with his students and they respect him for this.

David MacDonald – Physical Education Co-ordinator

I wanted to set up a program with Greg for 12 weeks to really push myself and see what fitness level I could get back to. After going through a thorough fitness assessment we embarked on a 12 week program training 3 1 hour sessions a week.

More importantly than the physical gains though, I have regained my passion for the active lifestyle. Too often there is little emphasis on the mental gains of physical activity. That has been one of the constants that Greg and I have discussed in this program and one of Greg’s biggest assets. The “big picture” approach is what separates Greg from a majority of the trainers who are caught up in counting reps.

James Street – Owner of Red Tag Fitness

PacificSport Interior BC Society has hired Greg over the past 5 years as a Strength and Conditioning practitioner and course educator for our Athlete and Coach Services Department. He has also been a presenter at our Coaching Symposiums, SportMap Primer and Athlete Forums. Both athletes and coaches have raved about the professional knowledge and energy that Greg delivers to each program.

PacificSport encourages the ongoing education of our Regional Coaches, Sport Medicine and Science Practitioners to be the best that they can be in order to stay current in their respective fields. Greg exemplifies this philosophy.

Greg is very passionate about being an educator. He constantly goes above and beyond to ensure all individuals and groups he works with are benefiting from the knowledge he is providing.

Carolynn Boomer – General Manager PacificSport Interior BC

I have worked on several Canadian Medical teams at international events, and I don’t think that I have ever worked wit anyone who has shown more consistent positive energy, or is more dedicated, than Greg. He is passionate about being the best he can be in the area of “strength and conditioning” and realizes that it is an ongoing learning process. Every day in my Sports Medicine practice, I receive outstanding feedback from his rugby athletes at school, their parents, and the many athletes that he trains at the gym program.

He has so much to give because of his passion, knowledge, honesty, and hard work and would be a great mentor.

Holly Eburne, B.P.E., BScR (PT/OT), Dip. Sport Physio

Acceleration Fitness and Greg Kozoris. Greg has exceeded my expectations and the level of coaching I witnessed at the University of Northern Arizona.

I have been impressed with Greg’s professional approach and thoroughness. I graduated from UBC with a Bachelor of Human Kinetics degree and Greg’s expertise in the field of Strength anf conditioning is far beyond the scope of my undergraduate work. Greg not only imparts his knowledge to the athletes but also his passion and attention to detail. It has been a pleasure watching Greg work and develop my athletes and I have noticed a marked difference in performance and physical abilities.

- Patrick Hennelly – Head Coach Men’s Volleyball TRU

As a result, an overwhelming amount of players that have utilized the programs that he has created, as well as his guidance and direction to maximize their growth and potential in hockey.

Given the fact that he utilizes his knowledge in a practice sense with athletes from a variety of fields on a daily basis. Greg continues to gain credibility in his respective.

In Hockey, Greg has cultivated a solid reputation as the most knowledgeable, credible and enthusiastic strength and conditioning coach in our immediate region. He is organized and easy to work with. He spends a surmountable amount of time ensuing that the athletes and coaches he works with properly educated and more importantly, utilizing his programs responsibly.

Bernie Pimm

I have had the opportunity to work with Greg Kozoris for the past 20 years as my personal coach. He has helped me with my performance endurance, which has advanced my professional career as a pro hockey player. In addition, he has enabled me to reach my personal goals of representing my country in the Olympics and other International Stages.

During the time I work with Kozoris, he has stressed the speed, power, and acceleration as the key to any athlete. The programs that I practice under his care are superior to any other systems I have worked with or seen. He personalizes each program to match the individual’s needs and desires because of his wealth of knowledge. He persistently advances his knowledge of the human body and ways to train it, so that he can always stay abreast with the newest ideas and formulas to better clients. I think any athlete who works with Kozoris will show improvements in their performance and ability to achieve their goals.

What makes Kozoris better than any other coach is his enthusiasm for everyone to reach their full potential. With a contagious personality that is inspiring, he makes me want to improve and advance my abilities. I believe that anyone who has the opportunity to work with Kozoris has the best chance to improve their personal skill set.
