Lesley Standerwick

Fitness has always been a part of Lesley’s life. Her passion for sport led her to a Bachelor of Human Kinetics from the University of British Columbia.
She began personal training in 1998 and since then has coached, trained, and educated her clients in established studios, at schools and as a part of medical teams.

Lesley specializes in functional and rehabilitative training with her focus on chronic conditions and long-term injuries. She works closely with our chiropractors, physiotherapists and massage therapists as well as doctors to develop a therapy plan for each individual.

Living and training on Bowen Island, Gabriola and now on the “big island” in Lantzville, she is no stranger to island living. Lesley, her husband and three children love the community that comes with living on an island and are excited to have found themselves in such a beautiful part of the world. The ocean and mountains provide the perfect playground.

She is currently teaching the Movement Essentials class on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s. This non-cardio class is focused on functional training addressing common weaknesses and faults. It is effective for all fitness levels.¬†For all of you who are interested in more instruction or modification to allow you to address a pose more efficiently this class will help! Or if you are working with injury and avoiding certain movements this class will teach you how to modify and move more effectively.
