We Are Dedicated
to Performance Results
Not only are we the leader in Performance Training…we invented it. ELITE is Canada’s FIRST Performance Centre — founded in 1998 by Jeff Fisher and Wade Miller. With over 25,000 athletes trained to date, we have been the training partner of more professional athletes than anyone in Canada.
Our #Relentless pursuit of success
Built for athletes, by athletes. At ELITE Performance we have over 30 staff to help you redefine your definition of excellence. You won’t find the whole gym doing the same group workouts, you WILL find a personalized program engineered for each athlete. We understand that your investment of time, energy and money shouldn’t be wasted with group workouts and their lack of results… Our ELITE programs are engineered for you: your sport, your needs and your success — coached by our ELITE Professionals — to take your game to where it needs to go.
Hockey to Ballet…
Football to the boardroom?
Since 1998, ELITE Performance has had the reputation of working with Pro/ELITE Athletes. In fact, we work with many people from different walks of life. From the Titans of business, to our Pros and all the way to the weekend warrior. Each and every prospective athlete is interviewed and thoroughly assessed prior to being accepted to ELITE. Acceptance is not based purely on athletic prowess, but also coach-ability, communication skills and the desire to be #relentless.
EL1TE Pillars of Success
ELITE is not just a Performance Centre, we are a community of like minded athletes with one goal in mind: success. We all know that it is not just the time you spend in the gym that counts, it is also the decisions you make in front of the fridge and the rest of the 22 hours a day you are not in the facility. To ensure your goals are reached, we back up Canada’s Best Programming with Nutrition and Physiology Lectures, Sport Psychology Seminars and solid nutrition programming to ensure you get a huge return on your investment.
President & Co-founder
After 7 successful years as the Head Trainer, Strength Coach and Assistant Director of Football Operations of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and 3 years of the CFL’s Evaluation Camp Director and 1 year with the NFL’s Test to be the Best, Jeff and co-founder Wade Miller opened the doors of ELITE to the athletes of Canada.
Since its inception, Jeff has worked with over 25 000 athletes from over 35 different sports, taking them to the top of their game. His unmatched enthusiasm and incredible understanding of Human Performance has brought athletes, from 5 continents, and trainers from all over the country seeking his expertise. He is known in many professional athlete circles as The Guru of Human Performance and Injury Rehabilitation.
Jeff’s passion to improve the performance and life of others gave birth to a not-for-profit he founded in Winnipeg. Project-ECHO, (Elite Cooperative Help Organization) to date, has provided over 2 million dollars in food, new clothing and hope to Winnipeg’s most needy. Most recently Project-ECHO had overseen and donated the construction of a new industrial kitchen at the Lighthouse Mission, increasing the number of meals served per day from 100 to a capacity of 600+.

Our in-house physician is at ELITE at least one day per week and can conduct a pre-participation physical or can consult on any health concern you may have.
In our opinion, one of the best modalities that you can introduce into your training program. Whether it is a post game flush, a pre-game massage or treatment of a nagging injury, our certified Therapists can accommodate all of your clinical needs.
We always compare the duties of our therapy staff as to a Formula 1 pit crew. If you drive your race-car at 150 mph, you will need a pit-stop once in a while…and when you do, our staff of Certified Athletic Therapists will be here to help.
Our in-house Yoga staff works in small groups of 8-10 at ELITE and holds classes specific to your needs. These athletic slanted Yoga classes are a great way to increase your flexibility and in-turn strength and power.
Over 60% of the athletes we work with list “mental game” as one of their weaknesses. Just like your shot, stroke or 40 time, your mental game needs work. Our in-house sports psychology consultant does just that… A national athlete herself, she guides our athletes and allows them to realize the tools they need to bring the best they can to every training session, practice and game.

Beach 4 Life is a group for all who love to play beach volleyball in Manitoba. Volleyball as we all know in Manitoba is extremely successful at a National level, but over the past few years the numbers for Beach Volleyball have been dropping considerably and it is our hope with this group, combined with the continued support of numerous people and facilities in our community that we can all work together to promote the sport and consequently increase both opportunities to play and those numbers participating to take advantage of those opportunities!
