Cole was very active in sports growing up, captaining teams and playing everything from basketball, to badminton, to volleyball and even European handball. He especially excelled in football, with only one loss in his career, and rugby, which he was selected to play at the provincial level.

Cole is interested in strength and conditioning because of the intricacies and complexity of human movement. He loves that it is a never ending puzzle that can always be improved, and in that sense one must dedicate their life to it. The amount of time you spend with an athlete over the years presents the opportunity to help an athlete grow beyond physically, so long as you deeply invest yourself.

Cole is in his last year of Kinesiology at Mount Royal University.
