THE
COACHES

BRAD HALL

Brad was always active and has loved the sport of fitness from a very young age. Growing up, Brad played rep hockey and raced motocross and supercross. At 19, Brad purchased his first gym in Ft. St. John and called it the Bodyshop. After 10 years of running the gym, his soon-to-be wife, Marely, and he moved to Kelowna BC. Brad spent the next 9 years as a Personal Trainer always keeping an eye out for better ways to help people be encouraged and fit. In the summer of 2009, he had the opportunity to put together a personal training studio and has never looked back. Brad holds many personal training certifications including American Council on Exercise (ACE), Strong, Stretched & Centered (SS&C),  and CrossFit.

When not at the gym, you’ll find Brad outside skiing at Big White, mountain biking, relaxing at the beach or enjoying some ‘me time’ watching Netflix.

MARELY HALL

Passionate, loving and kind-hearted, Marely is often seen supporting others at the Bodyshop; handing out high-fives and sharing words of encouragement.  Marely has been in the fitness industry for over 25-years. She experienced some of her first workouts at the Bodyshop in Ft. St. John and just a few short months later, began dating Brad and working alongside him motivating others to live a healthier lifestyle. Marely has spent many years coaching and competing. She holds many certifications, and although you may see her coaching the odd class, she spends most of her time handling the administration of the gym.

When not at the gym, you will find her being Mom or enjoying a glass of wine with friends. Her and Brad have 2 beautiful young ladies. Summer is part of our youth program at the Bodyshop and spends her time skiing with Dad in the winters. Charli is a competitive acro athlete and travels quite a bit with Mom.

RYAN STOKES

Passionate about helping others, Ryan’s greatest reward is sharing in the successes of others. Since 2012 he has been coaching people from all walks of life, including youth and seniors. His oldest client is his Dad; at the age of 82, he trains at the Bodyshop twice a week, every week. When not at the gym, you might find Ryan playing floor hockey, water skiing or taking a quick nap.

Ryan sees true value in the methodology that the Bodyshop follows and truly believes that everyone can succeed and experience true health as part of our community.

ALLIE BROWNING

Growing up, Allie was a dancer for more than 10-years. She found her passion for health and fitness while living in Australia, where she worked as a trainer for 2 years. Allie moved back to Canada and studied to be a Physiotherapy/Occupational Therapy Assistant; working predominantly with seniors. Allie’s love of training and nutrition helped her transition to the Bodyshop full time and has since become a certified Nutrition Coach.

When not at the gym, you may find her out on an adventure with her hubby, on the couch with her dog, Piper, watching Phantom of the Opera.


NICK RENSBY

Originally from Burns Lake in northern BC, Nick Rensby earned a diploma in criminal justice policing. After 4-years he realized that he liked ‘training’ to be a police officer more than being one. At that time, Nick changed his focus to his passion for fitness and teaching others how to find health and fitness. Since 2013, he finds joy in working with clients to see true results in the journey of life.

Nick is a HUGE Foodie, movie and comic book hero nerd. When not at the gym, you might find him out at the latest super hero blockbuster, or trying one of the local foodie hotspots.

MIKE BENCSIK

Mike has been active in the sport of weightlifting for many years and has competed on a world stage. Today, Mike’s passion is teaching people how to get strong using basic strength building methodologies, with Olympic Weightlifting as the backbone.
