 Our Team

Dave Porter

As the Program Manager of Lifelong Wellness and a Strength & Conditioning Coach at Fortius Sport & Health, Dave Porter has helped to develop a wide range of offerings for our clients. He currently leads the BackStrong Program, Burnaby Fire Dept. FireFit Training and our Small and Large Group Training Programs. He continues to expand our offerings in collaboration with our integrated practitioner team to better serve the needs of the Lower Mainland’s growing communities.

Dave combines his knowledge in improving client health and performance with his passion for the prevention of chronic disease and injury. He has a wealth of experience working with a variety of clients with various goals, clinical diagnoses and movement dysfunctions. 

Dave strongly believes in the Fortius mantra: 

“Everyone can be an athlete, regardless of your level of play or chosen sport. An Athlete is anyone who is committed to a sporting, recreational or active lifestyle goal.”

He is very excited to be a part of the integrated team of practitioners at Fortius Sport & Health, who endeavor to help members of the community thrive in their favorite activities.
