Gotstyle Menswear Bachelor: Martin!
Martin is 28 years old and moved to Toronto from Vancouver Island in 2011 to train full time with the Team Canada beach volleyball team in pursuit of the 2012 Olympics. After successfully qualifying for the games and placing 17th in the world, Martin retired from the Olympic team to launch his “Strive Conditioning” signature personal training business at the 5-star Shangri-La hotel downtown. Excited to make a significant impact in people’s wellness, he has also recently become the eastern Canadian ambassador for the 60 Minute Kids Club Charity. The charity goes to elementary schools to educate children on making healthy life choices. Outside of the health field Martin has teamed up with fellow bachelor Matt Bryce to create unique quarterly social experiences in the downtown core. With a passion for living life to the fullest and a desire to inspire positive change, 2013 will be an exciting year as he shifts his focus and ambition from the beach to the city.
