Meet our team

Our health perspective.

Health is not purely physical.

At WholeFit we promote sound mind, body and soul. Our aim is to provide you a platform to keep you mentally, physically, and emotionally healthy in our busy modern society. 

For some, that means a comfortable environment to disconnect from technology and clear your mind.

For others, it means pushing the envelope...putting the extra 2.5 lbs on to your max and pushing through the challenge, shattering what you thought was physically possible for yourself to do.

Everyone is different. We are here to support YOUR serenity.

Owner/Head Coach

Jon Celestino 

Hello, I'm Jon Celestino, a certified CrossFit trainer with a relentless thirst for knowledge and a profound commitment to understanding the human body. From a young age, my parents chauffeured me across Ontario and the United States for various athletic endeavors, with my heart always leaning towards baseball. As a natural athlete, I eventually found myself at the Illinois Institute of Technology, where I pursued a Bachelor's of Science degree in Biochemistry. Here, I gained valuable insights into the intricacies of the human body.

My academic journey equipped me with a profound understanding of human anatomy and biochemistry, which became a powerful foundation for my career as a CrossFit trainer. I crafted and refined a fitness regimen that not only propelled me to multiple accolades in my final sports season but also transformed my overall life. Fitness and exercise, I discovered, extended far beyond athletic performance; they proved to be potent catalysts for boosting confidence, mood, academic performance, and overall energy.

Furthermore, I hold the rare distinction of being a CrossFit Level 3 certified trainer, a credential that showcases my commitment to excellence in the field. My unique approach blends my insights into human anatomy, biochemistry, and the emotional benefits of exercise. This journey has also led me to explore the transformative power of meditation, self-control, and the intricate relationship between body and mind.

I'm genuinely captivated by the synergy and shared values among the members and coaches here at WholeFit. Our focus is on providing comprehensive fitness and nutrition education, where information isn't just mindlessly recited but thoughtfully discussed. Every opportunity is seized to expand our horizons, ensuring that you receive the most well-rounded fitness experience.

Gymnastics Specialist

Megan Pellizzari

I have been an athlete all my life, competing in gymnastics, track and field, cheerleading and now CrossFit. But my passion has always been gymnastics.

I was 5 when my parents enrolled me in my first class because “my feet never touched the ground”. I progressed very quickly and finally started competitive gymnastics at age 8. I say “finally” because I had been turned away 3 times previously because I didn’t have the “gymnastics aesthetic” they were looking for. I was too tall, gangly and not flexible...but I loved it!

This was my first real lesson in sport. Heart is an athletes biggest measure of potential. Regardless of appearance, we should participate in sport because it makes us feel good and because it is FUN!

Through my training, I have been privileged to win Provincial and National titles but my greatest accomplishments and source of motivation has been the opportunity to coach others and helping them to achieve their goals. I love hearing the cheers of success (and even giggles sometimes) in the gym because it means that we are crushing goals and having fun all at the same time!

I have now been coaching for nearly 27 years and I have had the opportunity to be coached and mentored by some of the best technicians in Canada. I am incredibly blessed to work alongside the fabulous trainers and members here at WholeFit. I am so proud to be a part of this supportive community

Chelsea Read

My Wholefit Journey:
Hello, Wholefit family! I'm Chelsea Read, not just a high school teacher by day but also a passionate CFL1 coach by evening. My life is a unique blend of chalkboards and chalk marks, lesson plans and lifting plans. At Wholefit, I've found a second home, a place where the energy is contagious, and the laughter is as abundant as the sweat.

Why I Adore Wholefit:
The heart of Wholefit? It's all about the people. From our incredible coaches to the diverse members, families, teens, and everyone in between, the sense of community here is unparalleled. Whether it's rallying together for events like 24 Hours of Heroes or sharing encouragement in daily classes, the connections I've made here are irreplaceable. Wholefit isn't just a gym; it's a family that I am incredibly grateful to be a part of.

Favorite Workout:
Give me a sprinty challenge any day! I love workouts that are fast-paced and intense, like a 4-5 set AMRAP lasting 2-3 minutes each, with a sweet rest in between. Think bar cycling, hang cleans, snatches, double-unders, and box jump overs. Oh, and let's not forget my all-time favorite: Grace. It's quick, it's tough, and it's oh-so-rewarding.

Sweet Spot for Sweets:
Confession time: I'm a chocolate fiend! Mini eggs, peanut butter cups - you name it, I'm probably craving it. It's all about enjoying life's little indulgences, especially after a good workout!

Fitness Philosophy:
"Find your fun in fitness!" That's my motto. Whether it's a stroll in the park, an intense HIIT session, or a friendly game of hockey, the key is to love what you do. As someone who once dreaded solo gym sessions, I've discovered the joy of working out with friends and the thrill of trying new things. Remember, fitness is a journey of self-discovery, so don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. And most importantly, keep it fun and light-hearted – it's not about the leaderboard, but about moving, laughing, and enjoying every moment.

Patrick Ramsay

 My name is Patrick Ramsay and I am a Personal Trainer and Bootcamp Instructor at WholeFit. I’ve loved playing sports my whole life and dabbled in tons of different sports growing up, from hockey, to football and track & field (just to name a few). As I got older, it was hard to narrow down my commitment to a single sport, as my interests have always had a tendency towards expansion rather than narrowing. I find a variety of sports extremely appealing, and each for their own unique reason. Maybe that’s why I’ve been so interested in CrossFit recently – its goal is to train every aspect of fitness. Eventually I decided to focus on football, the sport I was most passionate about, playing competitively for the London Falcons for six summers in a row and then making the Western Mustangs roster as a walk on going into my first year of University. While earning my degree and training as a member of Western’s football team, I fought through a slew of nagging injuries which taught me the importance of self-maintenance, mobility, stretching and paying special attention to holes in my fitness. I was also exposed to how our physical health interacts intimately with our mental and spiritual health. In my second and third years at Western as a member of the practice squad for the Mustangs, I had the opportunity to develop my skills while playing for the London Beefeaters Football club. During that pivotal third year I switched positions from Defensive Back to Linebacker and experienced immediate success. Although I felt I was ready to be a part of the Mustangs dress roster on game days that year, I was asked to continue playing with the Beefeaters and helped lead the club to its first ever Provincial Championship in one of the most memorable sports seasons of my life. In fourth year, I was finally given the chance to dress for Western – accomplishing a goal I had set ten years prior while playing minor football. During my time at Western I trained under the Strength and Conditioning coach Jeff Watson, a man who has trained a couple of NFL players and countless CFL players. No two workouts were ever the same (literally), each one was unique and challenging. I could never soak in enough knowledge from Jeff, which is why I’m currently volunteering under him, helping to run morning workouts for Varsity athletes at Western.

When I heard about WholeFit from my long-time friend Jon Celestino, I was instantly intrigued. It was exciting to learn of this gym’s dedication to the surrounding community, and its holistic approach to health that empowers people. It is so much more than a business. Personally, Meditation has ushered in more joy, balance, and perspective into my life. So, as a gym that offers Yoga and Meditation in addition to strength training and bootcamps, WholeFit was already phenomenal to me “on paper.” But when I came in and got a chance to meet the squad and saw how they operated, the decision had made itself: this was an unreal fit. I am infinitely grateful to be a member of this team, and by extension, this community. Let’s work out together some time!
