TEAM STATEMENT

In 1976, it all began here. The iconic celebrity fitness scene. The serious, no non-sense workout. The commitment to always remain a true gym, not a resort. A place where great shape is an authentic passion. Where you belong among friends. Where everyone's star, and you have the power to lift yourself to greatness. This is World Gym.

Madi found her passion for fitness after dancing competitively for 15 years. The strength, conditioning and diet required to perform and compete at that level of dance, lent itself well for her to enter the new chapter in her life as a Fitness and Personal Trainer. Though she is newly certified, Madi is eager to learn and gain experience in this exciting and always changing industry. If you’re looking to get your sweat on all while having lots of fun, you can find her on the gym floor, teaching a class or greeting you from behind the front desk! Madi teaches for both the Platinum and Diamond Members.

Aaron is a practicing member for the British Columbia Association of Kinesiologists. The primary role of a kinesiologist is to evaluate physical-activity related matters and recommend solutions in health, exercise, sport, industry, business, education, rehabilitation, and social settings. Aaron was born and raised in Kelowna and attended Kelowna Senior Secondary school. Aaron obtained his Bachelors of Human Kinetics degree through both Okanagan College and The University of British Columbia. Through out his life Aaron has enjoyed playing all sports and being active. His most passionate sport being ice hockey, where he played both at the junior and college levels. It was through off season workouts at a young age where Aaron first discovered another one of his passions, weightlifting and the gym. Through hours of sport and training, ultimately, it was the question of "how does the human body get mentally and physically stronger?" that led Aaron down the continuing path to further his education and becoming a kinesiologist. Some of Aarons community and practicum involvements include coaching youth in minor hockey, developing outdoor fitness plans for seniors, and working with chronically diseased patients. Outside of the playing field and gym, Aaron's interests include being social with family and friends, music, carpentry, mechanics, and learning new skills.
