Shane Munson

Shane moved to Winnipeg from Thunder Bay in 1999 to play football for the University Of Manitoba Bisons. Named the Bisons starting quarterback straight out of high school without playing any junior football, Shane started at quarterback for the Bisons for five years and was instrumental in turning the football program around. In just his first year, the Bisons made the playoffs after many futile years without a playoff appearance.

Shane was a top prospect for the CFL but a devastating shoulder injury ultimately ended his career, bringing him to Pro-Fitness Training for rehab. During his rehabilitation, Shane discovered a love for training and eventually earned his Nationally Certified Personal Training Certificate.

In addition to training at Pro-Fitness, Shane is a juvenile counselor. Shane is a sport movement specialist and specializes in training athletes from the junior to pro level, as well as clients wanting to achieve their everyday fitness goals.
