With more than 25 years experience as a boxing and strength & conditioning coach, Emile will hold you accountable to your targets and goals. "I make a personal commitment to each and every client to ensure they reach, and even surpass, their individual fitness goals," says Coach Emile, who began his own athletic career in track and field.
While competing in triple jump at the 1996 Olympic Trials, the all-round athlete suffered an injury that made him refocus his energies to boxing. After a brief stint as an amateur, followed by a couple professional bouts, Emile turned his attention to training fighters through his business, The Boxing Loft.
At the downtown gym, Coach Emile built Golden Gloves champions, an Ontario Provincial champion, and was the strength and conditioning coach to former World Champion and professional fighter Natasha "The Nightmare" Spence.
Coach Emile has done it all while employing a soft-spoken and compassionate attitude towards all his clients. "I train athletes and adults of all abilities and all ages," says the Parkdale-based trainer. "Even for those with time constraints, or are brand new to exercising, I'm constantly developing unique workouts to suit their needs and to help them turn their goals into habits."

Training with CoachE at The Boxing Loft has helped me get in the best shape I've been in years.
At first all I wanted was to try something new. Friends suggested yoga, but I wanted to try a workout that was a outside the box - something easier to prepare for than running or biking, especially as winter was coming on.
CoachE's program has peaked my interest in boxing, helped me become more mentally and physically disciplined and provided me with a laundry list of workouts I now do almost daily at home in tandem with my training sessions.

Coach Emile brings a true passion to both developing athleticism and technical excellence. His strength and conditioning work is both broad
- including not just power and endurance, but speed, balance and coordination - and sport specific.
Training with Coach Emile at TBL has taken my conditioning and my skills to a level I couldn’t have imagined before working with him. Highly recommended whether for general body transformation, sport specific strength and conditioning or to learn true boxing skills.
- Chris Flynn
I signed up with Coach Emile because I was suffering from severe back pain. I soon realized that he customized his workouts to make them challenging but not so difficult as to be discouraging. And the back pain has never recurred.
I've now been training with him for ten years and credit him with helping me achieve my best level of fitness in many years.

The Boxing Loft was exactly what I was looking for in a small, focused, local gym. Great for conditioning and boxing training. The workouts are rigorous and the coaching is attentive - great value for all levels. Highly recommended.
