Meet The Team

Meet our Kinesiologists and Athletic Therapists



Avi Sharabi is a Registered Kinesiologist, Personal Trainer and coach who was raised in the Cowichan Valley. Growing up with two older brothers lead her to being the opponent, the goalie and like every young sibling, the natural punching bag. Sports and the outdoors were always an integral part of her life, mentally and physically. This sparked an interest in human kinetics, mental performance and athletic performance. These interests manifested in pursuing a degree in Kinesiology, minoring in psychology and playing Varsity Rugby at the University of Victoria. Avi believes that movement and exercise is medicine for both the body and the mind. She uses advanced techniques such as Functional Range Conditioning and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization to optimize clients rehabilitation/personal training programs. Work and Education Goals: Shortly after graduating, Avi began working as a Kinesiologist with us at Back to Back. She is studying to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach while building her portfolio as a S & C Coach and personal trainer. She aspires to continue her educational journey by pursuing a Masters in physical therapy. Her goal is to bridge the gap between Physiotherapy and Strength and Conditioning to enhance athletic rehabilitation and training practices.



Sophie is a recent Bachelors of Kinesiology graduate who was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba but raised on Vancouver Island. With an older brother as her inspiration, she delved into a diverse array of sports from an early age, ranging from soccer and dance to softball and hockey. Opting to focus on competitive hockey, Sophie proudly represented Vancouver Island throughout her middle and high school years. As an athlete, Sophie became passionate about strength & conditioning, as well as injury prevention and rehabilitation, which stemmed from her own experiences overcoming various injuries. This passion led Sophie to pursue a degree in kinesiology. Sophie has experience working with athletes and sports teams, but is also keen to work with the general population and assist them in achieving their fitness and lifestyle goals. Sophie is certified in Soft Tissue Release therapy and plans to pursue other certifications such as Shockwave Therapy and Cupping Therapy.
