Dr. Dauphinee’s enthusiasm with respect to fitness goes beyond the confines of clinic. He has a keen interest in body building and powerlifting techniques and you will find him in the squat rack most times in the gym. “Fitness is key. Being strong but knowing your muscle weaknesses will take you to the next level of performance.”  He also tries to change up his cardio workouts with squash matches, volleyball, high intensity interval training and power skating.
