I have also been able to stay injury free due to his running techniques, my form has allowed me to take stress off of muscles that I was used to having problems with. I highly recommend you take your athleticism to the next level by training with Jarid Vaughan! “*

Mel is truly an amazing trainer, her passion and enthusiasm for her job and fitness combined with her warm , friendly personaily creates such a comfortable atmosphere. Every session is different but enjoyable, she works with you both mentally and physically to encourage you push your limits and get the results you are wanting to see.

“I have been with Jarid and Mel for just over two months now. Prior to that I was working with another trainer, I have had more success with Vaughan’s fitness in two months versus two years with others! It’s a fantastic feeling thanks Jarid and Mel“*
Lisa M – Local Vaughan’s Fitness Customer

Came into Vaughan’s fitness about a month ago looking to get into shape for summer! Being pretty active in the gym already I was looking to get the best out of my workouts for optimal weight loss and toning! The time I’ve spent training with Mel so far has been such a positive experience. I love how she really takes the time to make sure you have proper form and that she pushes me just enough. She’s given me lots of tips and exercises to try when I’m at the gym alone and she’s also showed me some exercises that have helped me with my long distance running goals. “*

“Sam is a great trainer and kinesiologist. Sam played a vital role in my recovery after a motor vehicle accident; she helped me regain my strength and overcome my injuries through skillfully planned work outs that addressed my physical deficits. Sam is great at keeping the work-out challenging and fun while being able to answer any sort of technical questions. She has a wealth of knowledge in muscle rehabilitation as well as strength training to meet whatever fitness goal you may have.”*

“I had pretty basic goals that I wanted to achieve when I started training with Sam. I have always enjoyed exercising but I wanted to improve my strength and do cross training that would benefit my cycling performance. I had reached a plateau and needed help taking things to the next level. Sam created fun workouts that focussed on strength, stability and balance- teaching me practical exercises and how to lift weight safely and effectively. I have learned so much from Sam and she always pushes me to do my best. Instead of starting somewhere she knows I’m comfortable; she will challenge my abilities and I often end up accomplishing something a lot tougher than I would have gotten into if I worked out on my own. I completed my first Gran Fondo in Whistler last September and training with Sam made me confident I was ready and strong enough to race. The VF team are extremely knowledgeable and I’d highly recommend working with them to anyone who’s looking to achieve any kind fitness goal.”*

“Before finding Jarid, I tried out several trainers. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I bought a home gym.
After a couple years, the equipment was still looking pretty new, I came across Jarid’s website.
At my consultation, Jarid’s vast knowledge and passion for fitness was such a pleasure to see! I signed up, and listed my fitness equipment for sale when I got home.
Jarid’s attitude toward fitness is motivating. He brings a lot of value to his clients with his experience, enthusiasm, and approachable personality. His patience, positive reinforcement and gentle encouragement made my goals attainable.
The quote from Warren Buffett, “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get” describes Jarid’s approach to training.
Thanks Jarid, I’m glad I found you.”*
