About • cabel



At 15 Cabel McElderry was a skinny kid with crooked teeth and a funny name. Cabel, like many kids, struggled with self-esteem and a lack of confidence. Weight training and fitness became his vehicle to overcome these personal challenges and influenced a career choice that would change many lives through empowerment and self-improvement.

By 18 he was managing a local gym, by 23 he was considered to be one of Canada’s top amateur bodybuilders. This sparked his personal training career which over the next 15 years he would personally train thousands of people to dramatic physical transformation. He’s eliminated prescription medications, helped individuals avoid surgeries and even had a few people insist he, “saved their lives!”

Though from humble financial beginnings and many years of struggle in 2007 he opened Red Deer’s award winning One-to-1 Fitness (Sold in March 2016 but still going strong today), hiring and educating trainers to impact even more local lives and has opened two new locations in Edmonton, Alberta and another in Innisfail, Alberta with more in the works! He was the Red Deer Advocate/Life’s longest standing columnist writing on health and fitness for more than 15 years and regularly published Personal Fitness Professional Magazine (the largest magazine for fitness professionals worldwide) for another three years.

He’s trained and certified hundreds of other trainers, produced a training certification program that is now used worldwide, created 100s of six-figure and a growing number of seven-figure earning personal trainers working alongside industry guru Bedros Keuilian as senior coach in the www.7figuremastermind.com. He’s been a guest speaker across Canada and the United States, and is now considered to be one of the top fitness business mentors worldwide. In recent years Cabel was a nominee for “Canada’s Top Trainer” and added to the list of “North America’s Top 100 Fitness Entrepreneurs,” and even produced his first documentary about overcoming physical limitations aptly named “CHANGE the Movie.”
