James offers personal training and exercise therapy services


My name is James Ovsenek and I am a Kinesiologist and Personal Trainer operating through Vitality Osteopathic and Exercise Therapy in Saskatoon. My specialty is injury recovery and sport performance.


I was born and raised in Saskatoon. After graduating highschool I attended the University of Saskatchewan and earned my Bachelors Degree in Kinesiology with great distinction. 


After finishing my degree in 2019 I worked as a Kinesiologist at Lifemark Physiotherapy in Lethbridge. I worked as a team with Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists to help people with a variety of issues including chronic diseases, long term disabilities and acute injuries.


While at Lifemark, I also ran physical employment readiness testing for a variety of employers. Here I became a member of the Canadian Kinesiology Alliance and received my Functional Capacity Evaluation Certification.


I then came back home to Saskatoon to work as a Personal Trainer where I received my certification for training through CSEP; the gold standard for exercise science and personal training in Canada.


Today I train people with a variety of backgrounds ranging from your “average joe” to people with scoliosis, fused joints, and torn shoulders. My philosophy for training is to give you the best training that science can provide and to keep you moving throughout your life regardless of any set-backs that come your way!

"James is a super knowledgeable personal trainer. Not only that, he is able to explain the training in a way that anyone can understand. When I first started training with James, I had back pain that acted up regularly. Now, I can go days without noticing anything off with my back. He is a great trainer with plenty of experience that I would recommend to anyone looking to improve their health!"
