"I was struggling to lose the last 10-15lbs after having my daughter then a friend of mine recommended I check out Emily’s Mom and Baby Bootcamp. I was a little hesitant at first because my knees have always been weak and often sore. But within 6 weeks Emily was able to turn my weakness into my strength, I shed that last 10lbs and gained some amazing strength. I went from barely being able to do a 30 second plank, to being able to do 2 minutes easily. I can’t say enough great things about Emily and her training style. She made it fun for me and her positive energy and supportive nature makes for the perfect trainer. Now being pregnant again, Emily is supporting my through this pregnancy and I can't wait to see the kind of results I can get this time around postpartum." - Danielle S.

Joe first fell in love with fitness in 8th grade when he dedicated himself fully to athletics and went from a knock kneed ‘non-athletic’ kid at 320+lbs to a healthy ‘athletic’ kid at 260lbs. The newfound physique and confidence completely changed the trajectory of his life.
Following an extensive career in athletics Joe underwent 6 major surgeries and battled back from countless injuries. During the process he realized that many of the injuries could have been prevented had the proper training taken place. By implementing a well-rounded combination of pre-habilitation exercises as well as mobility-based movements into his training programs he has been able to help himself, as well as his clients, reduce pain/complications from previous injuries and drastically reduce the risk of future ones.
Joe’s training style is a combination of everything he has been exposed to throughout his 13+ year career in international/professional athletics. It ranges from entry level pre-habilitative and rehabilitative movements all the way up to more advanced athletic development movements such as Olympic lifting and functional movement patterns. He likes to keep workouts fun and motivating in an effort to ensure clients are excited for each workout and develop a long-term, sustainable relationship with their fitness.

Hailey grew up in Vancouver and completed her BA at UBC with the intention of pursuing a teaching career in 2012. But she decided to take some “me” time and began to train for a big open water swim, and the more she trained the happier she became. This inspired her to go back to school and became a Personal Trainer, and there is nowhere she'd rather be!
Becoming a mother has had a huge impact in Hailey's training mentality. Her experience with her own fitness goals before, during and after her pregnancy ignited a deep appreciation for the fluidity of the human form. Our bodies are simply a reflection of our lifestyle, and Hailey believe's forming healthy habits is the key! After all, we want to continue our habits for the rest of our lives, so they need to be sustainable. Change is incredibly simple, when we make it simple. Changes don't have to be drastic, but should be enjoyable.
We want to see physical changes in ourselves, we want to accomplish things we couldn't do before, we want to set good examples for those we love. We want to be able to experience life, and not miss out on opportunities because our bodies won't allow us to pursue something. Hailey will strive to help you build these habits.
