Sasa & Strahinja Mitrovic

June 2019

This fun-loving pair is father/son duo Sasa and Strahinja Mitrovic. You'll find these two working out together all over the CGC - from the Fitness Centre to the Field House and everything in between. They both believe starting the day with exercise is good for body, mind, and mood, but their time spent together at the CGC is more than just a sweat session; it's a time for them to connect, talk through life events, and set up their day for success.

"Starting your day off with exercise helps you stay in a good mood and keep you mentally sharp."
  • Where is your hometown?
"We are originally from Serbia, but have lived here in Halifax for 20 years."
  • What do you like about the CGC?
"What we like about the CGC is the community and always seeing the same friendly faces."
  • What motivates you to maintain an active lifestyle/why is fitness so important to you?
"What motivates us to stay active is the return that you get from it. Starting your day off with exercise helps you stay in a good mood and keep you mentally sharp."

    • What do you like to do in your spare time?
    "Nowadays, we don't have much spare time, but when we can find some, it's usually used to relax and eat outside in the backyard."
    • What is your favourite workout routine/where in the CGC will we find you?
    "Our favourite routine would be on Saturdays when it's a mix day of workouts, followed by a few laps in the pool and then relaxing in the hot tub or sauna."

    "We occasionally like to eat out as a family to a restaurant where we will order a good amount of chicken wings."

    "Our favourite movies are the 'Alien' movies, hands down!"
    • What is your go-to workout song or what are you listening to right now?

    • What is your favourite quote?
    "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." - Aristotle
    • What is your current workout goal or accomplishment since starting at the CGC?
