Shara Vigeant

Personal Trainer/Owner

Shara is the owner of SVPT Fitness + Athletics, and bodybuilding was the stepping-stone to her career as a personal trainer and strength and conditioning coach. After her own struggle with weight growing up and into her 20s, bodybuilding lead to a lifestyle that centered around better nutrition and daily exercise. Shara left bodybuilding behind in 2006, and began focusing on more of a truly well rounded and athletic lifestyle. She leads a very active lifestyle that is centered on athletic performance and using varying training protocols and tools. Pursuits beyond bodybuilding towards better mental, spiritual and physical health and wellness consequently lead to her passion: helping others learn to feel good about themselves, improve health, and teach athletes how to take sports performance to another level. Specifically, Shara has been working closely with the St. Albert rugby team on sport performance and player personalized training.

Shara mentored under Scott Abel from 2006 to 2012 and also spent a month at Adrenaline Performance Center in Montreal under Jonathan Chaimberg in 2012. Other mentorships include MBSC-Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning in Boston (2013) and Loren Landow at Steadman Hawkins Sports Performance in Denver (2014/15).
