Meet Dean


Dean Somerset CSCS, CEP, MES
Dean is a personal trainer, author, and international public speaker whose main area of expertise is injury and medical dysfunction management through optimally designed exercise programs. 

Dean is from Edmonton, Alberta Canada. Technically, Dean has some more impressive sounding titles, but they all just mean the same things: Dean helps people get strong, fit, flexible, and enjoy fitness as much as possible.

My clientele has included clients with post-surgical joint replacement rehabilitation, cardiac rehabilitation & wellness, sports injury post-rehabilitation, neural impairments and spinal cord injuries, cancer patients and even elite runners and fire fighters. Training is easiest once you know where to start, which is why I try to incorporate a lot of different assessment techniques, some common, some I’ve made up on the spot, but in each case the goal is to see what that person uniquely brings to the table and how I could help them get more from their workouts, however that may be. 

Everyone has a raging beast of an athlete inside of them, and deserves to feel what it’s like to push their limits with a safe and effective program. 

Any of these questions resonate with you?

What clients have to say about training with Dean

Dean Somerset is a psychopath. Or sociopath. Anyway he’s some sort of path. If this were Egyptian times, he’d somehow have me whipping myself as I built a damn pyramid, with my abs braced and imagining I was breathing through my eyelids

I mean, sure I’m stronger than I’ve ever been and sure, I’m more mobile than I’ve been since I was a teenager and sure I’m not in pain anymore but the damage to my fragile ego of sneaking into the aerobics studio for some pink weights because it’s all I can control for half-kneeling baby reverse amoeba squats just isn’t worth it. Probably.
 
Andrew Moore, long time distance coaching client

I came to Dean a hot ghetto mess of sadness and confusion, having for the first time in my life found a sport that I love and questioning if I could continue due to injury. Not only did Dean create a specific program to address my injury, but he also made my training enjoyable with variations I had never done on my own.

Most importantly, Dean’s bedside manner is that of someone who actually cares, plus his e-mail response time and banter are hilarious. The only way you could go wrong with Dean is if you don’t go with Dean.
