Baku Building About Me

Hello, I'm Coach Baku


I am confident to say that I am an elite personal trainer and online coach in the fitness industry. I own and manage my own gym @themarkhamgym, employ over 15 top-notch trainers, and have been personal training/coaching for over 15 years now.

I have graduated from two different universities: McMaster University and University of Toronto in Health (kinesiology) and Gerontology with minors in sociology and religious studies. During my time in school I played varsity level football, enrolled in over 10 physiotherapy and occupational therapy-based courses to enhance my knowledge. I continue my passions today, striving to continuously learn and progress. I always keep up to date with fitness/health trends (debunking most of them) and find science based academic articles to better help my clients. Needless to say, I may be holding the answers you’re looking for. I have also worked for and still volunteer as a geriatric care provider for several retirement homes regularly in the recreational and occupational therapy departments; I have many senior clients who have reclaimed their health and fitness levels. I love treating people’s pains and injuries (knee surgery, hip replacements, torn ligaments/muscles, sciatica, concussions, frozen shoulder, etc.) and imbalances via knowledge of rehabilitation, exercise, pain management and future injury prevention.

Another side of me is that I’m competitive. I have been in two physique shows myself. I have coached others into bikini and physique competitions with gold, silver, and bronze medals to show for as well.

My strategies are science based and prioritising progression, longevity, and sustainability. I believe that fitness should be balanced with the rest of our priorities. Weightlifting, mobility training and cardiovascular health training is the best approach.

I love teaching my clients literally everything they want to learn and get excited when designing programs. My overall goal is to help build my clients independence and confidence in their abilities.

I have experience in CrossFit (CF lvl.1), Olympic weightlifting, Olympic level  breakdance coaching and functional fitness.

My goal is to reach out to as many people as possible and just help. Whether you’re absolutely new to exercise and diet, a beginner lifter or a gym-rat, you’ve done yourself a great service by coming to my page. The way I see it is that everyone, including the greatest athletes in the world can benefit from personal training and programming.

I’ll end it with this. Let’s get to know each other, build trust, set some goals and start taking control.

I want my dreams to come true!
