Being involved in fitness for over 16 years, I’ve always dreamed of owning my own fitness facility. I started out personal training in a garage with no heat and a door knob that would fall off every time the door would shut. I ran outdoor boot camps on many different Campbell River park fields during the blistering heat and down pours. Thinking back to where I started I am extremely grateful for the business I have now. I wake up every day thankful for the support Campbell River has shown.
This business has attracted such an amazing group of individuals that are ready to embrace anyone that walks through the door. My goal was to create a place where judgement was left at the door. A place where all different ages and sizes could come with whatever their workout style was and feel like they belonged. We have accomplished this goal! I am thankful for the members and for my wonderful staff.
For those of you that have met me you will know I’m pretty outgoing, I never take things too seriously and I’m often busting at the seams with excitement! I absolutely love my life and my job and I get excited to drive to work every day. Club Fitness is my home and the staff and members are my family. You’ll often see the staff lingering after hours because the magnetic pull “of awesomeness” is just too strong to let them go.
When choosing the name for my business I decided “club” was just too perfect because here at the Club, everyone belongs!
"Thank you all for your support!"

“I have been involved with sports since I was very young. I originally was a track and field enthusiast, and even qualified for the BC summer games in 2010. In 2012 I showed horses and won many championships on the VIHJA circuit. In 2013 I discovered the weight room and I fell in love with feeling strong and powerful.
Since then I have attained the BCRPA Personal Training certification and continue to learn on a daily basis. I value both physical and mental health and aim to provide the highest quality of personal training possible to each of my clients.”

“I’ve worked at Club Fitness for a couple years and I’ve loved every second of it. Fitness was never a part of my daily routine until I started working here. I owe all my progress and motivation to the amazing staff and members. Without them I would not be where I am today. The positive atmosphere makes this a perfect place for everyone, it’s my home away from home. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for not only myself, but for all the members and staff here at the club."

“Coming from a family that’s so passionate about fitness and personal health it could seem like an obligation for me to follow in their lead, but it’s not like that at all. Since joining the Club Fitness staff years ago I’ve taken my own interest in being in shape, and have always strived to make healthy choices. Club Fitness is an incredible facility with an enthusiastic and positive atmosphere! My coworkers and the incredible members have become my second family. I’m lucky to have found a place of work that I’m so passionate about. It’s impossible to come to a shift and not be excited - what’s not to love about a place that always supports you and encourages you through everything!“
