At PUSH!FIT we are so much more than just a Gym
Studio Owner & Program Director
Christine Line is our studio owner certified holistic health coach and high performance coach. She has been in this industry for 20 years and has seen all the fads come and go. One thing remains through all of that, we all deserve to feel absolutely amazing in a body that’s strong and allows us to say yes to more life.
What got her in this in this industry was in her teens, going through a chaotic time, her family was unravelling when she found athletics, which gave her strength when she felt weak, hope when she was hopeless, confidence when she lacked it, and discipline and focus when she was scattered and overwhelmed. Exercise and athletics really helped create the core of her confidence and the identity that she has today.
She found a well inside of her that allowed her to tap into potential that she didn’t know she had access to.
Today, this is her passion. Tapping into that well that we all possess. That internal well of strength, confidence, energy, and purpose. The body is the most amazing way to do that.
Her training philosophy and philosophy on health is that our body is a beautiful dashboard that was given to us by the universe and it is always giving us feedback. The goal is to tune in and listen to what our bodies really need and to nourish, and move it accordingly so we can thrive everyday.
To Christine, health is a whole mind, body, soul approach. That’s why she always starts with mindset, if our mindset is not right, we can’t sustain anything, we won’t find the motivation and we certainly won’t be consistent. Mindset First! From there we layer nutrition; nourishing the body with food that makes us feel alive, that upgrades our cells, with movement that makes us feel free, mobile and strong, and able to say yes to everything. We then layer the lifestyle coaching, because in today’s world we are overworked and overwhelmed. When we bring these four elements together it creates pure magic and we are able to experience more in our bodies than we ever thought possible.
Her expertise lies in mindset and soul coaching, she loves to blend spirit and science together to help people achieve optimal health by using their body as a dashboard, tapping into their heart, and mastering habits that create optimal performance.
Her certifications include: Certified Personal Trainer, Certified C.H.E.K Practitioner, Certified Holistic Health Coach level 2, C.H.E.K Lifestyle Coach level 2, Certified High Performance Coach, Certified Integrative Nutrition Coach, and a host of other things.
Chris’ background in baseball, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Crossfit, High Intensity Interval Training, and running created the backbone of physical fitness that has spanned across the past 14 years.
It took 5 years of working in the corporate world for the feelings of being unfulfilled and lacking purpose to realize that health and wellness extends far beyond the arena of physical fitness.
That led him to pursue his passion in genuinely connecting with people in a positive way through the vector of health and wellness.
The foundation of his knowledge is based in the CHEK principles of holistic health; looking at the human body beyond its physical existence and into one’s mental, emotional and spiritual health.
Chris has been part of the Push!Fit team since October, 2018 and thoroughly enjoys providing a positive and safe space for people who are new to exercise to move, reduce their levels of pain, and help make them feel great in their own skin.

Malik started out a varsity athlete playing basketball at York U, and his desire to get better is what drew him into fitness. From there he trained for the next 4 years. He quit after and went to work at a corporate office. He was there another 3-4 years until he went to a meeting where they were giving out awards for people who have been with the company for 5+ years. The saying was, If you have been with the company for 5 or more years, you would be here for life. That got him thinking and he realized that being there and being unhappy with the way he looked and felt on a daily basis, is not what he wanted for the rest of his life. From there he quit that job and rekindle his love for fitness and has never looked back. He is happy to say that he has been apart of the fitness industry for 10 years!
Malik could talk a lot about his philosophy and how the body improving will make you feel better give you more energy. Which is amazing and true, his philosophy you need a mindset first. Once YOU have made up your mind to no longer accept your current reality, that’s were true change will not only happen but also last forever.
Malik’s area of expertise is understanding that we all have goals that we want to achieve and help bridge the gap by improving your actions. Accountability is only one piece of the puzzle. To have true emotional connection to a desire outcome. That is his special interest in all of Pushfit athletes and my goal is to bring it out every athlete that works with me.
Most people don’t know this about Malik but he is a huge nerd. In his free time you can find him playing video games and binging movies. Also he loves playing with his french bulldog named Teemo.
