PJ WREN (OWNER)
I've been a trainer for over two decades. During that time I have had the pleasure of helping thousands of people get fit either in-person or online.
My goal, with all my programs, is to create a non-intimidating environment, provide workouts that give results, while kicking it with the energy, the motivation and the right amount of tough love.
Mountain climbers. No wait, I mean squats. No, actually it's lunges. Shoot, I can't decide. How about a squat, lunge to mountain climber combo. Yeah. That's my fave exercise.

I've had my own health and fitness column with the Delta Optimist since 2001.
In addition, I have enjoyed seven seasons as the producer and star in my fitness show “Fitness with PJ” on Eastlink Cable.
Back in 2003 (pre-reading glasses era) I won the Delta Chamber of Commerce’s Entrepreneur of the Year award, and in 2015 (post-reading glasses era) the reader's of the Delta Optimist choose me as Best in Fitness and Best Website.
The greatest award of them all, though, is waking up everyday to do what I love to do. Kick a**.
