Our team

Christina Weiss

Christina is a clinical exercise physiologist who is specially trained to work with special populations that include medical high-risk and chronic illness populations, such as people with disabilities, arthritis, and other related conditions that reduce and limit mobility, with a specialization in adapted physical activity.

Christina primarily oversees all programming related to the PERFORM Centre Conditioning Floor. She recruits new trainers and instructors, and organises new, dynamic and creative exercise opportunities for our fitness members, including a wide variety of group exercise classes.

Christina also coordinates the Clinical Exercise Physiology (CEP) internship and apprentice and volunteer programs on the Conditioning Floor. These programs are offered to students in exercise science and related fields, from all universities. These programs are designed to help students refine the skills learned in the classroom for a hands-on learning experience, teach them how to practically apply methods and how to work with participants in real, hands-on training appointments.

She is also a regular presenter for various community programs within the PERFORM Centre.
