Ontario born but British Columbia bred, Eric found CrossFit inside the walls of Endeavor Fitness in December 2016 and never looked back. He competed in his first Open in 2017 and found a new respect for both the sport and community of CrossFit.

Seeing not only the competitive side, with a hockey and university baseball background, but the teamwork and solidarity inside the gym, he decided to leave his post in Saint John New Brunswick and return to what made him whole in Invermere. After getting his Level 1 Certification at Pure Fitness in Red Deer this October, Eric is hoping to share his love of fitness and betterment of individuals and community with the great team at Endeavor Fitness.

Having such an inspirational athlete as your trainer is truly motivating. But Jolaine does more than just inspire. Jolaine finds a way to help all of us reach our individual goals. Whether we want to lose some weight, recover from an injury or build strength Jolaine has 1000 different ways to make our goals happen. Recovering from injury can be a challenge at a regular gym where instructors aren’t trained to offer substitutions. Jolaine has an amazing repertoire of exercises that can be substituted to avoid a previous injury and even more mobility stretches and auxillary exercises to help avoid future injuries.
If you want to learn gymnastics movements or olympic lifts Jolaine is truly one of the most qualified instructors. Before you know it you’ll be making snatch jokes with the rest of the herd as they warm up their olympic lifts! Olympic lifting is one of the best ways to build strength by using functional movements that include your whole body.

Christine joined Endeavor Crossfit in 2011 a couple years after the birth of her twin boys.  After four years in the gym Christine decided to join the training team and in December 2015 took her Crossfit Level 1.   Christine’s motto is “Playing the Long Game” .  After seeing some Crossfitters give it 100% day after day then abruptly quit after the first setback (sniffles, time conflict etc) Christine decided to commit to going 5 days a week at her own pace.  Some days she rocks the WOD, other days she gives a solid 60% but after 4 years she’s still there everyday loving life and slowly improving her skills.

Christine enjoys the camaraderie of the classes and likes to help students build their skill sets.  Gymnastics are her favourite, with Olympic Lifting placing a close second.  The Assault Bike and Christine are still working on their relationship.
