  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Jake has always loved being active and has been involved in high level sports throughout his life. When he first stepped into Bodyshop Fitness and Nutrition he knew he wanted to become a part of the coaching team. Jake is a certified BrandX trainer focusing on youth fundamental fitness. As soon as you meet Jake you will understand his passion for helping and motivating others to achieve their goals.

    You can find Jake hanging with friends or mountain biking with his Dad. He also enjoys watching shows like Star Wars and practicing mindfulness activities.

  • I started my career in fitness durning my second year in university as a competitive track and field athlete.  Soon realizing that running 400 meter sprints wasn’t going to be my future, I instead focused on the training aspect.  A love for moving weight and helping others propelled me in accumulating multiply certificates in personal training, fascial stretch therapy, biofeedback, and receiving a diploma in nutrition from an accredited university.  My background training helps athletes move with confidence pain free, while helping them achieve their own individual goals.

    While not in the gym I’m usually looking for another direction or trend in the fitness industry that can broaden my skills as a top tier coach.

  • Hey there! My name is Incredible Izzy, and I love to live, train, eat and live some more. I am very passionate about food, whether it is the culinary arts or the science behind nutrition. My earliest memories in life are anchored in the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mom is an excellent cook, and my dad, in my eyes at least, is a pioneer in the food and beverage industry. So I grew up in an environment where learning and appreciating a wide array of foods was the norm. From those experiences, I gained a deep abiding passion for “magically” transforming random pantry items into delicious wholesome meals!

    I graduated from Concordia University with a major in Finance and a minor in Exercise Science and Nutrition. And went on to work in the hospitality industry for most of my adult life, combining my knowledge in finance and my family culture of hospitality. It was a fantastic journey to say the least, in the process I met amazing people that helped refine me and my perspectives on life. During that time, I got married, had three amazing children and gained 70lbs. But one morning I was tired of feeling tired, so I put my gym shoes on, went to the gym, then went to the grocery store and turned my life around once and for all. I knew this was a defining moment because of my purpose. My mindset had shifted. I not only wanted, but I needed and DESERVED to be healthier, for myself, for my wife and of course for my kids. My “why” was now unshakeable. That was almost 7 years ago.

    Third best decision I ever made. The first best decision was getting married to the love of my life Rana. The second best decision was getting my semi professional high fiver certificate from the wild streets of LA! For years I attended seminars, workshops and conferences on nutrition, to further my knowledge and better understand how different foods affect us and why. In the process I was exposed to a ton of nonsense and with time learned how to research better and spot disinformation… and there is a lot of it!!! Like way too much.
