Craig Hyslop

"While you're still young." Craig believes the body depreciates more from lack of use than lack of youth.  At any age, with proper education and guidance, you can: advance your health / fitness, extend your quality of life years, and actively recover from those acute or chronic nagging injuries.  Craig founded Alpine Athletics in 2019 to assist all abilities of the general public; whether your goals include: being able to walk your furry friend again or compete at the highest level in sport.  Away from the 'office' Craig fills his time in the outdoors, mainly on bikes and skis.  To find out more about his Athletic Therapy services, please visit

Health Philosophy

Specific Adaptation to Imposed Demands (the S.A.I.D. principal).  For tissue to adapt, it must be gradually stressed in a specific and controlled direction when it is safe to do so.  Health also includes: quality sleep habits, consumption of nutritious foods, and a controlled mental outlook on life, but that's a conversation for later.

David Utz

David believes in pain free movement. You shouldn't need 4 days to recover after a weekend ball game or need to lay down because you threw your back out picking up your kid. Strong muscles and mobile joints = easy moving. Anyone can achieve this with proper training and determination. David has been helping his clients lead stronger, fitter lives, as well as leading fitness classes for 5 years and was a student in the kinesiology program right here in Prince George. He is an avid snowboarder, hiker, and non-competitive sports player.
