Personal Trainers

"Whatever the reason, whoever you are, we can help!"

Jeff Messinger
Personal Trainer
Certified ISSA Master Trainer

For those of you who haven't met Jeff, he is a very popular personal trainer. He doesn't just preach it; he lives it! You can't help but be inspired around him.

Jeff started weight training in the gym in the mid-90s, becoming a personal trainer as soon as he was old enough. While Jeff has won several bodybuilding shows, he finds more fulfillment in helping others reach their goals. He has trained many clients to compete and win in bodybuilding, figure, and bikini competitions.

Jeff's real passion is working with everyday people who want to be healthier, look better, and/or tackle food issues. He focuses not just on the physical side of training but on the mental and emotional aspects of creating real, long-lasting success, health, and physical transformation.

“I feel like my whole life I’ve always been involved with some sort of fitness. Starting sports at a young age really helped me create a passion for staying healthy. I always told myself growing up that one day I would follow in my mom’s footsteps and work in the fitness industry. I’m finally working the job I’ve always dreamed of. There’s really no better place, with better people to surround yourself with. I can’t wait to see what the future has to offer to me here, and all the new members and clients I will get to meet! I look forward to helping you achieve your fitness goals!“

Carla Ephgrave
Personal Trainer
Certified 

Hi, I’m Carla, a proud mom and grandma, dental professional, Life Coach, Children’s Coach, Nutrition Specialist and Group & Personal Trainer. I graduated with flying colours from Fit Chicks Academy, Canfitpro & Think Yourself Academy.

My personal fitness journey has led me through all kinds of life milestones, including a major back surgery 4 years ago & 3 Bodybuilding competitions! I recently competed in the Van Isle Showdown and the Vancouver Open, placing 2nd in both! I am currently training for another show in Spring 2023 and have high hopes of getting my IFBB Pro Card.

 

By creating a modified weight training program along with special nutrition tweaks, I managed to work through my back injury until surgery and endured a rather quick recovery. The neurosurgeon proclaimed if it wasn’t for these feats and being persistent in maintaining my activity, I may have succumbed to a long and painful road from pre-surgery to rehabilitation.

 

I train physically and mentally, too, believing, living and breathing this simple yet profound statement that has been a lifelong motto of mine: MIND OVER MATTER. I know without a doubt, and I’m living proof that no matter what, if you put your mind to it, ANYTHING is POSSIBLE!

I work with and take pride in people who want a reinvigorated start on health, fitness…and life! Through my innovative, personalized fitness programs and holistic, wholesome meal plans, I’m here to guide you with an enthusiastic approach while making it feel as simple as brushing your teeth.

 

Without even meeting you, I know without a doubt you’ve got this! And remember, life isn’t about finding yourself; it’s about creating yourself!

Shelby Walkowski
Personal Trainer
Certified Personal Trainer (ISSA)

Hey Club Fam! For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Shelby. I have been an active member at Club Fitness since 2020, when I moved here from the prairies and passionately weight training for 4 consistent years. When I’m not in the gym, I’m either exploring the island with my fiancé Jake or working part-time as a Laboratory Technologist at the hospital.

 

My fitness journey is more of a mental health journey. In a nutshell, I was 23, feeling lost and unmotivated, experiencing a new all-time low. One day I decided I needed a change, a reason to crawl out of bed. I needed to try. I cried for help, reaching out to a well-known coach. He put me under his wing, holding me accountable and teaching me to love myself and achieve my daily goals, installing the little voice in my head saying, ‘I can do it.’ From there, my passion grew into bodybuilding and nutrition. Fitness will always be in my mental health toolbox and one of the many ways I love my body.

Fast forwarding to the present, I feel confident in guiding others in their personal journeys. Whether you’re looking for someone to keep you accountable, show you the ropes, encourage you, or help you reach your ideal physique. I am your girl! Let’s create a plan, checkmark those boxes and strive towards a better, stronger, happier future!
