Jessica Crawford

My journey in the health and fitness Industry started 16 years ago.   After marrying 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.  I felt inspired, and most importantly stronger inside and out.   I learned so much about myself from those around me – the gym became my “happy place” a place that felt “right” I remember thinking – Maybe I could inspire just ONE person to feel stronger….?

Shortly after, I completed my BCRPA certification in Personal Training – but I didn’t stop there.  I continued on to complete my Group Fitness certification, attending conferences, travelling as far as I could to learn from the best of the best in the fitness industry.  

There I was – that shy girl from the back row of a class – suddenly sharing my passion for health and fitness in the front of the room!  (Believe it or not, I was a very “shy” person growing up, so getting up in front of a class and leading a workout was SO far from my “comfort zone” ~ give me a mic now- and I don’t stop talking!) 

I believe that every muscle in the body is meant to be challenged.  I specialize in Weight training (level 1) TRX, Kettlebell, Barre, Spin, HIIT and Tabata.  Designing 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 the transformations in people and I truly believe it is a gift to be part of.   

I look forward to helping YOU find your BEST self at PURE GYM in Penticton.

KIM KOHAN

Kim learned to appreciate fitness, exercise and self-care in her early 40’s. During school sports, she always opted to be a goalie so that she didn’t have to run very far. She didn’t feel the need to exercise much at that time. She was tall and naturally slim and didn’t feel she needed to workout. When she turned 40, she watched her 70-year-old mother (also slim, tall and not fit) be unable to pull herself up into a truck due to lack of strength. This was the wake-up call that made Kim realize she didn’t want to weaken as she aged. She decided to do something about it.

Kim hired a Personal Trainer (Nicole Funk) and started working out regularly and quickly realizing the benefits of exercise. 2 years later, she started running regularly and continuing to do home workouts. A year later she found her passion in CrossFit. Kim has been working out at CrossFit (and doing the odd competition) for the past 7 years. At the age of 56, she feels the strongest she has ever been and has a true passion for fitness and well being!

As your personal trainer, you will find Kim’s fantastic people skills, along with her knowledge and dedication to daily fitness will support your journey to achieving your goals. Kim is encouraging, empathetic, open, honest, understanding, friendly and super motivating. Her attention to the detail corresponds directly to some of the qualities you would want in a Personal Trainer. Kim is super excited to help you find your passion in fitness!
