Hi, I’m Gail Marek, Group/Third Age Fitness Leader.

I have been a fitness enthusiast for over 30 years. It has been my lifelong passion to stay active! This includes aerobics, boot camp, cycling, hiking, skiing and snowshoeing. These activities have all contributed in becoming a fitness instructor.

My goal is to provide inspiration and motivation so that you can excel and become the best that you can be! With my knowledge I will motivate you with exercises that you will learn to love and stay consistent!

I am registered through BCRPA in: Fitness Theory, Group Fitness and Third Age. I have also attended various workshops and continue to keep up to date in the ever-changing fitness industry.                                        

Here at Fit U I combine HIIT/Tabata/Crossfit/Circuit to create a circuit style workouts that will challenge your muscles, endurance, flexibility & core strength. Classes are for all fitness levels but can be modified or intensified to your fitness ability. I utilize an array of equipment such as skipping ropes, weights, kettlebells, bands, cones, TRX, weighted balls, bosu, weighted bars, body weight, park benches etc.

I encourage you to start by setting small reachable goals and build from there. We all had to start somewhere, so why not try out a class today? Check out our schedule.

My Motto?

“Make exercise a part of your life. Once you do, you will love yourself for it.”

Hi, I am Alicia Barber, Personal Trainer & instructor.

I want to change the negative connotations of “working out” by creating challenging programs that empower all participants. I want everyone to accomplish something beyond their perceived physical abilities. I lead group classes with tabata, circuits, plyometrics and weight lifting techniques thrown in. I am currently training to become a yoga instructor and have been using new yoga techniques in my group classes.

I have previously completed a diploma in Marketing Communications from BCIT. I am certified in First Aid & CPR. I have completed the following courses through BCRPA: Fitness Theory, Group Fitness Leader, Weight Training Leader and Personal Trainer.  

My passions as an instructor are in introducing beginners to fitness, one-on-one & group instruction, sports training, and weight training.

I am excited to offer fitness classes in my own neighborhood!
