Enbridge Fitness Centre

Operations Manager


Len has always incorporated fitness as an integral part of daily life: pedalling or walking to work, playing hockey through the winter, or signing up for a race to have a training goal in sight.

Realizing that inactivity adversely affects your health in a myriad of ways – and then making sure to do something (you enjoy) about it, which you will stick with (for the long-haul), is probably the most common obstacle we all need to overcome on the path to leading an active lifestyle.

With a background in Biological Sciences from the University of Alberta with studies in Molecular Genetics (1997) and Plant Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (2001), Len has been teaching his clients how to meld the Science and Art of physical activity into a cohesive whole for the past 15 years.

Len believes that teaching his clients to move efficiently, and confidently, will help them stay injury-free, motivated to strive for new challenges, inspired to incorporate regular physical activity into their daily lives, and to recognize that the whole truly is greater than the sum of the parts.

Nicole believes being in control of your health and wellness is a lifelong pursuit.

Born and raised in North Vancouver, she attended Capilano University earning a diploma in Health & Fitness before completing her Bachelor’s degree in Human Kinetics at the University of British Columbia (2008).  Nicole grew up participating in multiple sports, but her true passion lies with Ringette, where she has competed at 10 national championships.

Coaching in the fitness industry for over 10 years as a strength and conditioning coach, personal trainer, educator, and mentor to aspiring coaches and personal trainers, Nicole has acquired an extensive skill set at both a theoretical and practical level to help anyone needing guidance, education, or motivation to feel empowered to reach their personal health or athletic goals. 

Nicole continues to inspire people to make manageable changes - starting right now - to make daily physical activity an integral part of their everyday lives.

Available for:

Personal Training, Small Group Training, and Group Fitness Classes at Breathe Fitness on Whyte & the Enbridge Fitness Centre.

M.Sc. Physical Therapy (2020)


Bryce is an avid believer in active lifestyles and in maintaining a healthy and functional body. Experiencing his own success with the challenge of lifestyle change and improving his own health, Bryce can understand and help guide other through those same challenges.

He understands the importance of proper movement to maintain health and the importance of corrective movement to address health problems. He studied human movement at the University of Alberta (2017) and is continuing his education into corrective movement as a Physical Therapy Student (2020).

Physical activity outside the gym is just as important as the time we spend in the gym. Bryce has always been quick to take up the task whether it be a local fun run, impromptu basketball game, or the exploration of Edmonton’s River Valley. He has also enjoyed his time as a successful golfer in recent years playing in numerous local tournaments and with friends.

A functional understanding of how we move to maintain health and improve our health has always been at the forefront of Bryce’s mind and will continue to be as he works towards new goals, and experiences.

RYT 200 (Registered Yoga Teacher), Empowered Yoga (2014)

40-Hour Adjustments Workshop with Afsheen Peyrow


Jena has always been active, and since being introduced to yoga - she has never looked back. The intricacies of the poses, the self-determination required and the tranquility of mind are some of the things that keep her coming back.

Seeing the results in her flexibility, muscle strength and mind/body awareness were all side effects that drive her to stay focused on her yoga practice.

A willingness to deepen her practice and share the results with others guided to her to take a yoga teacher training course. She now takes advantage of every opportunity to further her knowledge and experience with yoga.

Jena is currently studying Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, so expect an alignment-based class that focuses on a holistic view of the body.
