About The Team
Gentle Motion was started by Moshe Schwartz, certified personal trainer, nutritionist and Fascial Stretch Therapist. His team of trainers are dedicated to providing effective, efficient, and, most importantly, safe exercise programs, customized to each individual’s needs.
Specializing in injury rehab and prevention, and with a dedicated focus on post natal fitness, seniors’ health and fitness, and fascial stretch therapy (FST), Moshe and his team can help improve range of motion, mood, and flexibility through their personalized fitness programs. The team strives to help people of all health and medical backgrounds find an exercise program that is appropriate for them, to help manage conditions such as ageing, chronic pain, mood disorders and much more.
Moshe has been interested in fitness and nutrition from an early age, having been active in his local sports community as a child. Following 5 years in the corporate world, Moshe longed for his days playing baseball, volleyball, and basketball, and made the leap to a career in fitness. Moshe studied to become a certified personal trainer in Toronto and has never looked back, continuing to train in all aspects of nutrition, stretch therapy, and injury recovery. Gentle Motion was launched as Moshe identified a significant gap in the market for fun, interactive, and challenging workouts which could be accessed by anyone, regardless of their current health or ability. When not creating gentle workout routines, Moshe can be found playing Sudoku, reading, and spending time with his wife and daughters.
Karina joins the Gentle Motion team from an actor/creator background. However, with a firm interest in social work, and having worked in the field for many years, Karina has always been passionate about improving access to necessary services for vulnerable people, and those who need a little guidance and support. Fitness has always been a big part of Karina’s life, from her days cheerleading at Dawson College, through to kickboxing sessions in her own living room. She trained with her L.A. mentor, HASFIT Founder Coach Kozak, to become a valued member of the Gentle Motion team. Still firmly in love with the arts, Karina can be found teaching drama in her spare time, or jamming away on her guitar.

Rhonda has been working as a certified personal trainer since 2007. She decided to become a personal trainer after changing her own lifestyle 18 years ago, after the birth of her son. She made the decision to live a healthier life, to lose the baby weight and to become stronger. This change in herself motivated her to spread her enthusiasm and knowledge to others. She has trained all different clients: seniors, teenagers, couples, small groups, new mothers, and others. Her main goal is to improve the health of her clients, reducing risk of injury and making everyday movements easier.
