Alyssa spent the majority of her childhood in many of the hockey arenas around the lower mainland. Alyssa was introduced to hockey through her father and younger brother, she loved the game but was too shy to play. Trying many other sports she turned 13 and finally stepped out of her comfort zone and onto the rink. She made AAA rep hockey in her third year of hockey and developed an understanding of the importance of dry land training as it transfers to on-ice performance.

Alyssa continued to play league ice hockey in both men’s and women’s throughout high school and into university at University of the Fraser Valley. She studied Kinesiology with a focus on Pedagogy. Alyssa’s understanding from learning how her off ice training could improve or inhibit on ice performance sparked an interest in teaching others the most effective way to move for effective results. Alyssa also has international teaching experience where she travelled for 3 consecutive years to Antigua, West Indies with the Champions for Health Promoting Schools Program to teach life skills through health and physical education to elementary school children. She gained a love for teaching others and learned how to maintain a positive and fun environment while teaching.

Still continuing to push out of her comfort zone, Alyssa has taken up rock climbing as well as roller hockey, even making the roster for the 2017 Team Canada women’s team. She continues to push herself to new adventures and is excited to be a part of the amazing team at Vaughan’s Fitness!

Louise Forsyth

Jarid was a huge help in me achieving my goal of making the Canadian National basketball team and getting an NCAA scholarship for Basketball. My strength, fitness, and mobility improved drastically and I am continuing to work with him in preparation for NCAA Division I Basketball at Gonzaga University. He is very organized in his planning of my workouts and is attentive to proper form for each exercise. I look forward to training with him each week. He is a great trainer for an aspiring athlete.**

Keegan Maddocks

Making it to the next level in sports requires significant sacrifice AND a great support team. Jarid and his staff were instrumental in supporting me in improving fitness, flexibility, and strength; both physical AND mental strength. They educated me as to proper stretching, muscles and how they work, including the mental side of overcoming diversity. Jarid also worked directly with me on gaining the best results from “Combines Testing” allowing me to produce the results I needed to achieve my short term goals. Working with Jarid and his team was a great decision, one which I recommend to any athlete wanting to reach their goals **

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**

Jarid helped me gain knowledge of how to run with technique and form, it has helped me gain range in the outfield while also running better times on the bases. 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!

Elyse Lenz

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.**

The trainers at Vaughan’s Fitness are all friendly and knowledgeable. My experience with them has exceeded all of my expectations and I have recommended them to several of my friends and co-workers. I am confident with the workouts that the trainers design for me as I feel like they are tailored to my body’s needs and not a one-size fits all workout. When I have found that an exercise doesn’t feel right, they are able to adjust the workout to help relieve any discomfort. The prices are also very competitive for the service you receive and if you are considering getting a personal trainer than I recommend you visit Vaughan’s Fitness.**

Greg Paull

I couldn’t recommend Vaughan’s Fitness more highly. The focus is always on you and what is right for you on that day and over the long term. I started with Jarid and his team almost a year ago and had a very frustrating – and painful – shoulder injury. No magic potions or ‘fad’ techniques, just sincere two-way communication, appropriate exercise and training, some physical massage, some ‘homework’, and I am virtually pain-free with 95% mobility in just 10 months. Each session is documented and carefully thought out so know matter who trains you, the experience is always the same. There’s an obvious caring about clients that is shown by each team member – but make no mistake, they work you hard! And the great thing is, you begin to love the hard work just as much, and before you know it, you’re in amazing shape physically and mentally!**

I’ve been going to Vaughan’s for a few months now and the results are fantastic! Jarid and all of his trainers are extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and helpful.

Selene Millsap

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**

This place is great! It’s my first time doing personal training, and before finding this gym I did a lot of research on the web. I am glad I found it– I have had the luxury of doing one-on-one personal training with all the team members, and each one of them are amazing at what they do. Despite having their own way of approaching it, in the end all of the hard work pays off! Would recommend to anyone looking to do personal training :)!**

After being in pain for over 3 years from two car accidents and trying many different things working with Sam has been amazing and I wish I had found Vaughan’s fitness sooner! She has worked with me never pushing me if I am in pain but pushing me enough that I see and feel the change in my body. With my busy schedule Sam is always very accommodating and if I am not able to train with her she will give my info to another trainer to train me so I can make sure I continue with my progress of getting better. I look forward to continuing my sessions with her till I feel 100% and beyond that. Anyone looking for a great supportive trainers I highly recommend Vaughan’s Fitness!**

I just moved into the area and was excited to find that there was a training facility in our nieghbour hood. Jared and his group of trainers are very professional and thorough. As a RMT I was looking for a trainer who would help with muscle balancing and functional movement. My trainer Chelsey is amazingly resourceful and informative. Love working with her. Jared also amazing, he built a program for my daughter this summer to help get her ready for her fist year in Florida playing Div 1 varsity beach volleyball.
