Jeff Iwanaka - ACSM CPT BHkin - Performance5 Fitness

Welcome to Performance 5 Fitness! Growing up I embraced a very active lifestyle and participated in many team sports and activities. In grade 9 I joined my schools weight lifting class and immediately fell in love with the health benefits and confidence associated with weight training and exercise. I played minor hockey in Coquitlam and after I graduated high school I decided to take up the sport of speedskating. I had the opportunity to race in the BC Winter games in 2000; earning a Silver medal. As my passion grew for health and fitness I decided to enter the University of British Columbia to study Human Kinetics and earn my Bachelors Degree. I started working at a gym in 2001 as a fitness consultant/instructor and knew that I had a gift of helping people with their fitness goals. I became a Strength and Conditioning Specialist working with athletes in my community and soon after started to specialize in 1 on 1 personal training and small group training on the North Shore at a boutique personal training studio. From 2005 to this day I accumulated over 10,000 training hours, helped clients transform their body, re-invent their lifestyle and become healthy, strong and fit. I strongly believe in embracing an active and healthy lifestyle in order to be successful with clients. Outside of the gym I encourage and coach my clients into lifestyle activities such as hiking, cycling, adventure racing and much more.

Caroline Walton - Body By Design

I have a great passion for the work that I do with people. I love my job and I want to help people. I firmly believe that fitness should be fun and should fit into your lifestyle. Getting to the gym for a quick and fun one hour workout 3 times per week is a lot easier than heading out for a 6 hour hike every other day. I have had a passion for health and fitness my whole life. In my late teens when it was all aerobics, I attended as many classes as I could fit into my day when one of the instructors asked "why don’t you teach the class"? So I did. I have now been a certified Personal Trainer for over 20 years. After having my two children, I felt it was time to go more one-on-one with clients and started my own successful personal training business Body By Design. As I am growing with my busy family, I'm really enjoying putting the “personal” in personal training and helping other busy parents to find out what works for them. I know the limited time and energy we all have and I work diligently to put together efficient fitness programs that maximize my client's needs and goals. My clients range from teenagers through seniors, including promising young athletes, all with diverse goals from weight loss to rehabilitation. Several of my clients have been with me for 10 years or more, a true testament to the relationships I build with my clients. My other passion is entertaining and food; what better way to balance that than with exercise? If you don’t enjoy what you do for exercise, you won’t do it. Finding something that you enjoy and someone who can make it fun, exciting and educational in a safe environment is what I bring to everyone I train. I’ll make you want to come to the gym.
