Personal trainers and strength and conditioning specialists and coaches.
Lee Boyce made the early decision to pursue fitness training as a career while he was still doing his university studies, and he never looked back. He is a strength coach and educator based in Toronto, Canada. He has been helping clients and athletes with strength and conditioning, sport performance, and hypertrophy since 2007. He has developed international recognition as a trainer and as a prolific fitness writer. His expertise has seen him published over 1,200 times by some of the largest publications in the world of fitness and lifestyle media, including Men's Health, Oxygen, Train Magazine, Inside Fitness, Shape, Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, Men's Journal, Esquire, Strong Fitness Magazine, and the National Strength and Conditioning Association's Personal Training Quarterly. Lee’s first contribution to a full book came in 2013 with his inclusion in Men’s Fitness Exercise Bible: 101 Best Workouts of All Time, which became an Amazon best seller.
A former national-level university track athlete (sprint and long jump) and kinesiology major, Boyce credits this blend of theoretical and practical experience with his depth of understanding of the human body and biomechanics and his ability to simplify concepts that can be difficult for people to grasp. As a public speaker, Boyce uses his skills to deliver lectures, workshops, and seminars around North America and abroad, sharing innovative troubleshooting guidelines and unique perspectives for trainers looking to improve professionally. As a part-time college professor at Toronto's Humber College, he encourages critical thinking and a departure from the confines of one-size-fits-all, rule-based exercise science advice. It’s this type of thinking that developed his passion for speaking and writing about anthropometry and body types as they pertain to resistance training.
Outside of coaching, speaking, writing, and training himself, Lee makes sure he keeps current with his favorite hobby of all time: movies. A book on Lee’s favorite films would likely be twice the length of this one.
