Gemma - Personal Trainer - Kalev Fitness Solution
Before joining the fitness industry 22 years ago, I was a professional dancer performing well known roles in musicals such as Grease, Saturday Night Fever and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
I have also starred in many pop videos and other live events and have performed on some of the most famous stages in the UK including the Sadler’s Wells theater, The Cambridge and The Palladium in London.
I had my first taste of the fitness industry 22 years ago when I started teaching group fitness classes in gyms around London.

However, I didn’t discover my passion for the gym until I graduated from performing art’s college and found myself part of a highly image conscious and competitive industry. I soon realized that in order to keep my body in shape I had no other option but to start working out.

What started out as a hobby soon became a lifestyle, a passion, and a career. I decided to go back to University to obtain a Sports Science and Physiology Degree, and I’m lucky to say that since earning my Degree, Health and Fitness has taken me all over the world.

I was requested by David Lloyd to train and teach group fitness classes at his premier health club in Edinburgh, travelled with Virgin Athletic to their overseas clubs and I went on to create the group fitness schedule for England’s largest chain of health clubs.

My infamous BLT class has tightened and toned some of London’s most influential bottoms! I moved from England to Canada in February 2005 and began working as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor at Platinum Gym in Surrey, and was soon promoted to Group Fitness Coordinator. After a couple of years, I was then approached by the owners of Kitsilano Workout. I started there as a Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Coordinator and slowly ended up taking on various responsibilities including Fitness Manager, Sales Manager and finally General Manager.

After its unexpected closure I began running my own business Fierce Training. I have obtained my Russian KettleBell Certification, studied Olympic lifting with some of Canada’s top Olympic athletes, and competed in the 2018 CF regionals. Over the years I have trained some pretty well known actors and actresses helping them to get in roll ready shape.

10 years ago I discovered I was pregnant with my amazing 9 year old daughter Lyla and discovered there was little to no information for expectant mums on diastasis recti, core and pelvic floor rehab here in BC.

So I made it my mission to obtain as much information and qualifications as possible not only to rehab myself but other expectant mums too.

I am excited to be bringing my extensive fitness knowledge to Kalev fitness and to be part of his amazing team and vision.
