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 Schwartz – Owner and Senior Trainer

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.

Rhonda Schryver – Personal Trainer

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.

Valerie – Personal Trainer

As a certified Holistic Practitioner, Health & Wellness Expert, and Personal Trainer for over 30 years I specialize in teaching others how to use fitness as a tool to access their calmest and most empowered states of mind and body.

As a survivor of circumstances that felt far beyond my control, it took me nearly 20 years of debilitating back pain to discover the hidden connection between our emotional and physical bodies –I’m living proof that the stories we tell ourselves can either support or cripple us.

I mentor and counsel people who are exhausted from “living a life they never asked for”, providing a guiding light that reignites the parts of them that feel seen, heard, and valued in a judgement free space.

You are not alone in this journey.

Engaging in the Flow state has allowed me to personally meld with the present moment (free from the past) and be open to creativity, imagination, and wisdom rather than chasing goals or a specific result. For me, that meant leaving a 10-year relationship with domestic violence; holding my abusers accountable; finding love; losing love; loving myself; discovering myself; creating a new career; and raising an awesome teenage musician.

We do not control our lives we simply ride the flow wave of our lives. We get ourselves tuned up with the frequency of our surroundings while establishing a crucial anchored sensation – the flow. This is the natural rhythm essential for elevating and achieving a deeper intensity.

Simply implementing “The Flow” practice into my life allowed me to gain confidence, increase my energy, improve my sleep and improve my overall health!

I hope to help you on your journey as well!
