Brooke grew up exploring the Gulf Island and the outskirts of Nanaimo. She moved down to Victoria in 2015 to pursue her education at Camosuns’ BSFL program where she graduated as a Kinesiologist in 2020.
Today, she is the owner of Fernwood Movement Academy and believes exercise is not only a means to achieve fitness but can also take on the form of education, healing, and confidence building. Brooke always takes care to start with fundamentals and leaves lots of room for question asking. Her intention is that you leave feeling better than when you walked in and she achieves this through committed assessment, personalized session building, and room for exertion and fun.
Brooke works with everyone from weekend warriors and teen athletes, to those with autoimmune disorders and complex pain clients. She wants to provide a space where everyone who walks through her door is aligned and working towards their own longevity, their health and wellness.
Chantel is a recent graduate of the Bachelor of Kinesiology program at Camosun College, having discovered a passion for movement during her nine-year career as a naval radar technician. Formerly an intern at Fernwood Movement Academy, her analytical and structured approach to training has helped her clients progress towards their goals, whether they want to lift more, run faster, move without pain and with confidence, or just leave each session feeling good and sweaty.
As well as being a Registered Kinesiologist, Chantel is a Certified Personal Trainer with a certificate in Pre- and Postnatal Exercise Specialization. Recognizing that pregnancy can be a challenging time to exercise, Chantel wants to help her clients find safe movement to have their healthiest possible pregnancy.
Chantel works with clients in all stages of life, and is passionate about building strength and movement literacy in her clients. She strives to match the energy of her clients as they walk in the door that day to provide exactly what they need to feel their best.
