Meet our Trainers

Shannon Friesen 

Hi! My name is Shannon Friesen. I grew up being very active and playing sports like basketball and volleyball. Before becoming a Personal Trainer I was a Rehabilitation Assistant. Which I enjoyed doing for a few years before having kids. Then as life changed so did my career. Being a Personal Trainer has been an amazing experience. I have loved meeting different people at different stages in their fitness journeys. I enjoy seeing people reach their goals and be able to help them push through different barriers that they may not have done before.  
It's rewarding writing up a functional, weight training, HIIT, or circuit program and being able to challenge my clients with whichever method of exercise they prefer or need! Using new methods to keep it fun and challenging.
It's a very rewarding career!

Certifications - BCRPA Personal trainer, Emergency first Aid/CPR-C,

Grant Truong

Hey everyone, my name is Grant Truong. I have been physically active since I was a young boy. Through all those years, I have seen all the benefits exercise has on my physical health as well as my mental health. Physical fitness is an important part of life, I understand not everyone wants to be the next Arnold Schwarzenegger because honestly that would be ridiculous, unless that’s your goal then good on you. We want to get strong to make everyday life easier, be it lifting all your groceries in 1 try, or going up a flight of stairs without gassing out or even just having enough stamina to play with your kids.  I have been a BCRPA certified personal trainer for 2 years now. In those two years I have met so many amazing people that I had the pleasure of training and helping them reach their goals. The easy step is starting, the hardest step is staying consistent and that’s what i’m here for.
