MEET OUR TRAINERS
Most mornings - at 6am, you will find me dancing on a bike - in a dark room, to EMINEM, surrounded by the most incredible – AMAZING riders. This is more than a fitness class; this is one big sweaty family. I need them just as much as they do me. The energy created in this space is PURE magic.
My journey in the health and fitness Industry started in 2004 in a brightly lit room -nothing like I have today. After marring my true love and having my second baby, I craved a healthier- happier version of myself.
After joining a gym, attending classes and hiring a trainer- I fell in love with fitness. I felt inspired, and most importantly stronger inside and out. In November 2004 I completed my BCRPA certification in Personal Training, but I couldn’t stop there. In 2005 I continued to complete my BCRPA Group Fitness certification - I was hooked. I couldn’t wait to make my mark in the fitness industry - attending many conferences, travelling as far as I could to learn from the best of the best in the fitness industry.
The transformation I not only felt but saw within myself was the truest form of self-care I have ever experienced. Every muscle in the body is meant to be challenged. I specialize in Weight training (level 1) TRX, Kettlebell, Barre, Spin, HIIT and Tabata, please throw me a BOSU any day! Creating a safe & effective plan to assist clients & participants in meeting their fitness goals is my passion.
I have been blessed on this fitness journey, to witness transformations in people and I truly believe it is a gift to be part of.
When I’m not in the Gym you will find me spending time with the loves of my life, cooking, planning future vacations and sipping my favorite wine.
I look forward to helping YOU find your BEST self at PURE GYM in Penticton!

Hear what our clients have to say:
"Rhonda’s “functional fitness” approach with core-centred and supported training meshes perfectly with my needs as an avid golfer and busy grandpa. Rhonda’s training sessions are always upbeat, positive and full of enthusiasm which for me jumpstarts a successful week. I can honestly say I have never had two sessions even remotely similar and I think this planned and varied approach yields the most effective results. I know my whole body is fitter, stronger and more flexible as a result of her efforts. Rhonda even laughs at my stupid jokes and enjoys the numerous grandkid photos I show her before class. What more could you want? She’s the best!"
"I trained with Kim in the Summer of 2020 to get ready for my University basketball season. I looked forward to every workout and was always pushed and encouraged by Kim throughout every exercise. Everyday we did something new and she always kept me on my toes. She pushed me through a variety of strength, endurance, and mobility exercises. I improved so much while Kim was training me and by the end was ready for my basketball season!"
