stanleycupOur Story


In 2000, Dave "Eli" MacEachern, Olympic Gold Medalist & Olympic Hall of Famer, set out to revolutionize athlete training & power conditioning in Atlantic Canada.  He started training Brad Richards as his first Eli Sport client - now a 2 time Stanley Cup winner.  He formed Dynamic Fitness Inc. and began training more elite athletes: Adam McQuaid, Nathan McIver, Brandon Gormley, Ryan MacKinnon, Carson MacKinnon, Morgan Ellis, & Jared Connaughton. Now, 15 years later, Eli Sport is the #1 Power & Speed athlete training program in Atlantic Canada.


In 2001, Dave's wife, Triona Harrop, started PEI's first Pilates centre within Dynamic Fitness. Today, there are both Beginner & Advanced Pilates classes available (mat & reformer) in small group & private training sessions.

In 2004, Spin was introduced to the Studio and continues to be a very popular class and a great choice to improve strength & endurance as a low impact cardiovascular workout.

In 2005, Dynamic Fitness became home to PEI's only premium fitness boutique featuring lululemon athletica, Onzie, Karma, & Oakley yoga & fitness apparel & accessories. At this time, the ESA Training program was launched.  This made the Eli Sport-style of training available to everyone!  ESA Training is a high performance functional training program for adults which combines high-intensity interval training with strength & speed endurance and core stabilizing exercises.

In 2009, Dave opened Atlantic Canada's 1st Hot Yoga Studio in Dynamic Fitness.  It was not long before the Dynamic imprint expanded to New Brunswick.  Dave opened the Moncton's 1st Hot Yoga Studio in 2010 and Fredericton's 1st Hot Yoga Studio in 2012.

Dynamic Fitness' signature service, Hot Athletica was created in 2012.  Exclusive to Dynamic Fitness, this innovative class is practiced in a room heated to 95 degrees and combines high-intensity cardio interval training with strength & endurance training, core stabilizing exercises and yoga for a total body workout in 45 minutes!

Most recently, Dave opened up PEI's 1st FRESHII located inside of Dynamic Fitness.  The site was strategically chosen because of the amazing synergies between Dynamic Fitness and the rapidly growing and popular brand, Freshii.  Having a full service Freshii inside a fitness facility is a first for the Freshii franchise and provides the Dynamic clientele with more of the excellent services they have become accustomed to over the last 15 years at this location.  Serving healthy, fresh, delicious food, Freshii is a great option for anyone looking for a fast, nutritious meal in Charlottetown.

Over the last 15 years, the name Dynamic Fitness has become synonymous with health, fitness and high performance athlete training.  Join the amazing Dynamic Fitness community today - we can, and will, help you achieve your health, fitness, and lifestyle goals!
