Weightlifting has had a profound positive impact and influence on my life.
I grew up skinny, short and raised as a strict vegetarian. Despite being actively involved in various athletic pursuits, I lacked strength, confidence and direction in my life.
When I was 15 years old, I weighed only 110 lbs.
I vividly remember the clear decision to start lifting weights and gaining muscle.
I researched nutrition, training, programming; got a gym membership at the Rec centre down the street and dove headfirst into the life of an aspiring bodybuilder.
13 years later, I've learned and experienced a lot. Through trial and error I've come to know what works best for me and how to condense years of effort and adversity into clear, concise coaching for all my clients.
My passion for body transformation, human psychology and empowerment through performance nutrition and weight training has led me to a career in Personal Training.
My specialty is working with men and women that are clear about getting in shape and maximizing their time and efforts in and out of the gym.
My goal is to inspire my clients to love the intensity, discipline and effort of working out hard.
Fitness becomes a lifestyle and an unending quest to attain greater physical and mental goals and to enjoy and appreciate the process each day.
I smile when I hear a new client say "when I bench press 200 lbs I'll be satisfied." Then, 3 months later they're going for 250, 275, ...
As a culmination of many years of focus and dedication, I am competing in my first bodybuilding show this Fall. The Popeye's Fall Classic in Vancouver, BC
I am very appreciative of the support that Chris and all the knowledgeable staff at Popeyes Supplements Victoria has shown me. I have always bought my supplements from them and I trust their advice, products and attitude towards bodybuilding and fitness. I'm proud to be a Popeyes Victoria athlete and I recommend them to all my clients seeking nutritional supplements.
My favourite supplements currently include:
- VegeGreens Powder (Progressive)
- OmeEssential Fish Oil (Progressive)
- Glutamine and BCAAs (PVL Essentials)

“I’ve been going to Popeye’s since I started training in Victoria – almost ten years ago. They always have what I need to maximize my training. Not only do they have great prices but a superlative staff that’s incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I like Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Whey for my post workout shake. In the morning and intra-workout I drink Optimum Nutrition Amino Energy and Allmax Glutamine. Mt Post workout carbs consist of Allmax Carbion. I finish the day with my Optimum Nutrition 100% Casein protein. Having proper supplements at the right times greatly enhance performance in the gym and aids muscle recovery and growth”

Hey, my name is Garrett Hayden. I’m a certified Personal Trainer, Online Fitness Coach, writer, and WBFF Pro Muscle Model.
Fitness, health, nutrition, and helping people to transform their bodies are my deepest passions.
I have been studying training and nutrition as it relates to muscle gain and fat loss for close to a decade now. And while I’ll never claim to know everything, through my own research and experience in the field, combined with training hundreds of clients, I have learned a thing or two about what works and what doesn’t when it comes to helping people build the body they have always wanted.
I trust in Popeye’s Supplements to provide my clients only the highest quality supplements available, at the best value possible. With their outstanding customer service and knowledgeable staff, I know my clients are always in good hands when it comes to finding the right products to maximize their health, and performance in the gym.
