Kara Shirley

I’ve been involved in fitness my entire life, playing almost every sport you could. Eventually I found my calling in running. I have immense knowledge in cardiovascular training and can help you reach your weight loss goals. I have gone to school for the past 6 years in exercise sciences and other sport related courses at PISE, so I have the most up to date knowledge in physical activity. I have a passion for fitness and I want to implement it into everyone’s lives because I know how important a well put together program is for every individual. I enjoy working with people of all different back rounds, and past exercise experiences. I like to change things up as much as possible and keep my programs fun as well as hard. If you are willing to work hard I know we can reach your goals, what ever they are, together.

Laura Beaveridge

Exercise has always been an essential part of Laura’s life. Growing up she maintained her fitness level through competitive sports.  After ten years of competitive gymnastics as well as dance, volleyball and track and field she began cardiovascular and weight training in the gym to maintain her fitness level. This is where she cultivated her passion and dedication to health and fitness. This passion led her to become a Personal Training Specialist certified through Canadian Fitness Professionals. She is always seeking to learn more about health and further her education in the fitness industry. She plans to complete her Bachelors in Athletic and Exercise Therapy with an ultimate goal of becoming a Physiotherapist.

Laura combines her years of experience in sport conditioning with her knowledge in cardiovascular and weight training to provide clients with a well rounded, fun and effective program that is specific to each clients goal, whether it be weight loss, increasing strength, increasing muscle tone, improving flexibility, improving posture, sport specific training, or just being able to catch up to your kids with breathe to spare! Outside of the gym she enjoys hiking, rock-climbing, and recreational sports. She loves to see the positive effects that exercise has on not only physical fitness, but on so many other aspects of life including energy, confidence, stress level and overall well-being. Laura is positive, easy going and excited to share her passion. From beginner to advanced, Laura would love to help you reach any fitness aspiration.

Amelia Figueiredo

I am a certified BCRPA personal trainer through Hilltop Academy. I have many other certifications under my belt, such as: older adult, weight training, and fitness theory. I enjoy resistance training, as well as high intensity training such as kickboxing, and cardio interval training. The reason I decided to become a personal trainer was because of how much I enjoy fitness. I was always active as a kid, so it was love at first sight when I first stepped into the gym. I enjoy helping people work towards their fitness goals, whether it is to lose weight, gain muscle, or make fitness part of their daily routine!
