PERSONAL FITNESS TRAINER/ OWNER AND FOUNDER OF HIGH DEFINITION FITNESS.

Our goal at HDF(High Definition Fitness) is to Educate, Motivate and Inspire members to become the best possible version of themselves, no matter what they are trying to achieve.

I was raised in Vancouver, BC. I was always active from a young age playing soccer and rugby. I was fortunate to have many inspirational figures around me that motivated me and inspired me to jump into fitness. I have been weight lifting since I was 16 years old, but when I was 21 I was in a major car accident that left me broken for months. I hired a personal trainer and went through a year of intense rehabilitation and eventually worked my way back to health. That’s when I decided I wanted to help others change their lives for the better and help others become the best version of themselves.

I received my Personal Training Certificate through BCRPA. I have been in the fitness industry for 7 years and I have worked with over a thousand different people with unique goals, body types and injuries. The last seven years of my life have taken me on the most amazing journey. Along the way I met incredible people, each with their own dreams and aspirations. I have tremendous passion for fitness and everyday I still strive to become the best possible version of myself. I transfer that passion and love for fitness into helping my clients discover their full potential and achieve the goals that they thought were impossible. I am on a constant quest to stay on top of current scientific breakthroughs in nutrition & training. I continue to build upon my years of hands-on gym experience with continuous studying. With my extensive experience and qualifications, I promise to get you to your goals as fast as possible.

Are you ready to to change your body and your life? Are you ready to become the best version of yourself? Lets get Started and allow me to help you on your fitness journey.

If you are ready to add some positivity in your life, and reach your goals, team HD Fitness is committed to get you there. Transparency, dedication and passion, that what you get from us.

Lucas has always been an avid athlete. It all started with soccer. Bryan Ference, his father, got him involved at a young age and continued to guide him, always setting the standard for what was expected of him. In 2007 Lucas played overseas in Italy. He was on a very select team that had to qualify to get where he was. Unfortunately his scouting was cut short due to a dislocation injury before the main soccer tournament. Scott Kent, the assistant coach, helped rehabilitate him using both manual and physical therapy, and later ended up coaching him as a track and field athlete.

Naturally, Lucas loved to run! He was quick on the soccer pitch but now he wanted to get into sprinting. In 2010 Lucas and his three teammates achieved the 3rd fastest 4 by 400 meter running time in history. From there Lucas went on to compete for Trinity Western University, and attended the 2012 Canadian Olympic trials. Throughout this time he started to invest in his nutrition with supplements and vitamins, and he improved his athletic skill with weight training.

After finishing university he continued with weightlifting and chose to compete in bodybuilding. Lucas entered the first ever show to hold the “Men’s Physique” category. He placed 3rd, and from there went on to win his first Pro-qualifier competition as well as the Muscle Insider model search competition on the same day. He continues to push himself competitively, and aspires to compete with the pros.

Lucas has since started professional modelling under the Charles Stuart Agency and recently landed his first “big gig” with the well-known boot company Timberland.

Due to his experience with varying sports over the years, he has gained an understanding of how to train individuals to target their needs and reach their goals. Lucas has had great success training competitive athletes as well as everyday people. He absolutely loves what he does, and finds joy in helping people reach their full potential.

Amy is an allied health professional. She has been in preventative dental care as a hygienist since 2008, she is a newly appointed fitness leader with the BCRPA and is a certified yoga instructor.

Amy’s passion for athletics began with her competitive gymnastics career, from 1995 until 2006 she was a full time gymnast. She won hundreds of first place awards, competed provincially and nationally, and was on track for the 2010 Olympic trials. This was cut short due to two major injuries; a dislocated knee cap followed by a fully dislocated and detached elbow. However, the end of her gymnastics career took her interests in a different direction and she dabbled in; swimming & diving, areal skiing, as well as trampoline & tumbling. Unfortunately, none of these compared to gymnastics, she then pursued her professional career. In 2008 she was enrolled in dental hygiene school.

Dental taught Amy the link between oral and overall health. Inflammatory diseases! Diabetes, heart disease, stroke, heart attacks, pre-term low birth weight babies etc… She was obsessed. Total body health became the goal. Fitness and well being became her life.

In 2013, bodybuilding caught her eye, and over the next 3 years she would compete in numerous bikini competitions achieving provincial status. Learning and experiencing how nutrition and training positively affected her body, she now wants to help others learn and experience this too!
