INSTRUCTORS

Lori Watson (Owner)

A BCRPA certified group fitness instructor, Lori coached all levels of gymnastics at Victoria Gymnastic here in Victoria for 10 years. Lori grew up very active in dance, gymnastics and track & field and moved to Victoria in 1992 and rowed competitively with Victoria City Rowing Club. Since then she continues to be active by leading classes at the park, cycling to work, playing ball and attending/leading a few extra fun and new classes at the community centres.

I am in this industry to prove to you that fitness is fun and that you can do it, my goals are to motivate and challenge you to do something you didn’t think was possible.

Laying horizontal … Im at the park alot. I love game nights, and movie nights with friends, camping and playing ball.

My favourite exercise is the BURPEE all BURPEES! Even the power burpees, and burpees on the medicine ball, it’s a whole body experience. I love getting others to try new exercises and hearing them say….. ‘oh I can’t do that’.. then they do it. That’s my favourite part.

Creating a positive and successful little fitness company that I am so proud of.

People who accomplish goals from beginning to end and beyond.

Ami Vine-Sullivan

Ami Vine-Sullivan has successfully completed her practicum hours and is a certified group fitness instructor. She has started the process for other specialty modules; weight room prenatal/postpartum fitness and power lifting.

Fitness has become such a passion of mine. It has made a significant positive impact in my life. I am fortunate to be a part of a wonderful community of people at the gym I attend, from the instructors to the welcoming like-minded members. It’s a gym family. I want to make a positive impact in people’s lives the way my instructors have done for me and create a welcoming community for others.

You’ll find me participating in crossfit/crossfit style classes. Hanging with my family, cooking, camping, going to the beach year round and doing some seriously Netflix binge watching. And I love muddy obstacle races!

It’s hard to pick just one for myself! I love variety, especially when it involves lifting something heavy. Deadlifts and kettlebell swings are at the top of my list. And jumping jacks! I could do those forever. For others I’d say man makers. I am a big fan of those. They incorporate a few great movements in one; renegade row, burpee and thruster. They can be done with bodyweight for cardio or dumbbells for a more intense cardio/strength session

Pulling myself out of a long fitness rut after starting a family. Significant weight gain after my youngest son left me very discouraged. Although I was outdoorsy and moderately active it took a lot of dedication, especially on days I wasn’t feeling motivated to put on my shoes and really get my heart rate up with hard work.

Listening to and reading other people’s stories about overcoming barriers and situations to better themselves.

"Lori, thanks so much for providing the opportunity to get a great workout without having to join a gym! I really enjoy the variety of the workouts AND not being stuck indoors (yes, even on those cold winter days!)"

Lori has boundless positive energy and is very enthusiastic and encourages you to be your best. Each week is a bit different. I've been doing this class with Lori since November, I have lost weight, gained muscle, have more energy and feel great and look forward to the workout. Thanks Lori.
