Black Dog Strength and Nutrition (Jon Mills, They/Them) is a fitness, martial arts and nutrition coach living in Vancouver BC.

I offer coaching to help people eat, move and live better within their own bodies, and I am primarily focused on serving queer and trans folks. 

I am a Certified Kettlebell Teacher level 2 with the IKFF, a Precision Nutrition level 2 coach, and a certified Qigong instructor with Long White Cloud Qigong, an associate Tai Chi Instructor and Qigong Fundamentals Instructor with Tai Chi Healthways as well as a Historical European Martial Arts coach at Valkyrie Western Martial Arts Assembly. Check out my qualifications here. 
 
Currently I offer private sessions in fitness and nutrition coaching, Qigong and Tai Chi, and Historical European Martial Arts. 

I also run The Vancouver Visayan Style Corto Kadena study group, as well as sitting on the board of Big Gay Sword Year, an international showcase for queer and trans martial arts instructors.
