DAN ARCHAMBAULT | OWNER/HEAD COACH

Dan is a former Phys Ed teacher that wanted to put his passion for climbing and athletics towards creating a world-class climbing and fitness facility. Dan had always spent time in the weight room but found it somewhat boring and often ineffective. In 2010 Dan began following CrossFit and instantly recognized it’s value as a training tool for his athletic improvement. Dan sustained a severe climbing injury in 2011 and using CrossFit he was able to stay strong while recovering from this injury and returned to competitive climbing at an almost identical level to when the injury occured. Dan is one of the most experienced World Cup competition climbers in Canada. Dan has competed for the National Team in countries like Italy, France and Germany placing as high as 9th place in World Cup competitions.When Dan first tried practicing yoga, about 10 years ago, he realized that it was not only an overall beneficial activity both physically and mentally but that it was also very complimentary to rock climbing. Dan became a certified Ashtanga Instructor and has been teaching since 2009 and uses much of this knowledge to help clients achieve greater mobility in their day-to-day lives.

NICOLE DECORE | OWNER/COACH

Nicole started off her fitness lifestyle as a high level competitive Equestrian Show Jumper. After 14 years, Nicole became involved in weight training, running, and yoga. As a gym-rat, Nicole found that her “marathon workouts” began to falter as the monotony and anti-social gym setting became harder to face daily. The motivation returned for Nicole when Dan introduced her to CrossFit and she started seeing real gains in her fitness and strength. Being inspired Nicole chose to become a certified CrossFit trainer in 2011. Nicole feels that for everyone, herself included, motivation and dedication to fitness are advantages of Rock Jungle Fitness’ emphasis on fun, community, and variety through it’s excellent CrossFit programming.
