Being involved in the fitness industry for over 22 years, I had always dreamed of owning my own gym. I started out personal training in a garage with no heat and a door knob that would fall to the ground. 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 today. I appreciate all the support Campbell River has shown us over the years. This business has attracted such an amazing group of individuals, staff and members and we have become a close family!
I am lucky to be sharing this experience with my niece Adrianna and my daughter Nya. Adrianna has worked at Club Fitness since she was in highschool and has recently advanced into managment and Nya works extremely hard on front desk and manages the club cleaning. You will see both of these smiling faces ready to greet you at the front.
Our goal at Club Fitness is to create a place where judgement is left at the door. A place where all different ages and sizes could come with whatever their workout style was and feel like they belong.
I am thankful for all our 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!"

“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!“

“Club Fitness is such a great place to work! There is nothing better than having a little one high-five and give a hug goodbye after playing with them while Mom or Dad works out. Everyone works as a team making the job so much more enjoyable. It is such a positive place to work I love it here!”
