Kinesiology and
Personal Training

Our certified Kinesiologists use their expertise in active rehab and movement to fast-track you towards your strength and fitness goals. You are specific to your goals, so should be your training to you. We ensure a comprehensive approach to fitness.

ICBC Injury rehab

designed to educate trades workers on proper movement mechanics to prevent workplace injuries and decrease absenteeism. We know every workplace and trade is different, and we make sure to customise these workshops to meet the needs of your team.

Pre and Post pregnancy coaching

During pregnancy, your energy and symptoms can change daily. We treat you as you are when you walk through our door each session. Beginning with a foundation of breathing and bracing, we will provide you with the tools you need for a healthy, active pregnancy and postpartum period.

Brooke and Chantel are the best! Kind, non-judgmental, skilled, knowledgeable, with the ability to meet you where you are and help you to where you want to go. I've been going for 3 years and they've helped me regain my strength and fitness after several years of poorer health and habits. I trust them to evaluate me each session and tailor my workout to give me exactly what I need to improve, whether it's toward a goal, a personal best, working through an injury, or prehab. Strength, stability, mobility, proper functional movement training through a wide variety of exercises, working with these kind, positive, and professional women is the highlight of my week. 10/5 stars!

I was in a rough place physically when I first showed up to my movement assessment. Brooke welcomed me with open arms and turned me from a life with pain during activities to being BC fit and able to enjoy the outdoors again. I can’t put into words how empowered I feel after working with Brooke.

I was in a car accident (rear-ended) in 2020 and had been to many different practitioners for help with a variety of injuries/symptoms including shoulder pain from a torn (slap tear) rotator cuff. As a result of the accident, I went from being a highly active person to not being able to put a shirt on without pain which severely hampered my ability to continue on with my regular daily routine. Because of the incredible progress I was able to make by working with Fernwood Movement Academy, I've since been able to fully resume both weight lifting/Thai boxing as a result of having more confidence in my shoulder and overall ability! They took me all the way from only being able to carry 10lbs in my hand to bench pressing 200+lbs. Because of this, I couldn't be happier with my experience with the team and would definitely recommend working with both Brooke and Chantel especially if you've been in a car accident!

I've been working with Brooke for almost 4 months since my ICBC claim and could not be happier with the service and results I have received. I live an active lifestyle and had been slowed down by pain and headaches from the accident. Not only was she able to help alleviate and address the pain but we began looking at my scoliosis and on-again-off-again back pain. After working with Brooke I notice I'm able to move with less restriction and I'm stronger even compared to before the accident! I'm very happy with my results and would recommend FMA for any ICBC claim!

If you’ve got questions

We have the answers

After your initial assessment, your Fernwood Movement Academy Therapist will provide you with recommendations based on your needs. The majority of our clients have embraced our services as part of their healthy lifestyle and therefore work with us regularly on an ongoing basis. If you are in pain, our therapists will be able to provide a more specific recommendation catered to your needs.

Fernwood Movement Academy starts with the belief that everything is connected. We start by looking at the global picture of how your body is ordered and balanced, how your body moves, and how one issue can lead to problems elsewhere. This helps us look strategically and systematically at the root cause of any pain, dysfunction, or areas holding you back from performing at your best.

Our therapists are all Registered Kinesiologists with a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree. In addition to their professional training, our therapists go through rigorous and ongoing internal training on the Fernwood Movement Academy treatment approach.

Our therapists are all registered and therefore will be accepted by health benefit plans. We do not direct bill at this time, however a receipt with all necessary information for you to submit will be provided.

We do direct bill for clients claiming their appointments through ICBC, just bring your claim number to your first appointment! Please see our ICBC page for more information.

Per our cancellation policy, if you need to reschedule or cancel your session we require 24 hours advance notice. If you cancel your session within 24 hours, you will be charged for the session.

 

If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you do not attend your session for the safety of our staff and clients. If you need to cancel due to illness, please contact us as soon as you know you are unable to attend your session, and we will try to reschedule your appointment.
