Team Kerr Neighbourhood Pick: Eastside Fitness

  • One of Team Kerr’s favourite places in Vancouver is Eastside Fitness! Located at Fraser and 41st, this studio is one we keep coming back to again and again for its vibrant atmosphere. Matt Kerr talks to co-owner Wendy Sinclair about what makes this fun and welcoming fitness studio such a community gem.

    Wendy Sinclair was police offer for over 20 years before she decided to retire and completely change gears – opening up Eastside Fitness with partner Darnelle Moore. It was important to them to have a space that was open to everyone in the community, and welcomed people of all ages and backgrounds, including kids and families. The studio has now been a community staple in the South Fraser aread for over 6 years.

    Eastside Fitness has a wide range of affordable classes that include all types of yoga,  martial arts, teen workshops and more. Their Commit to Fit programs are popular and challenge people to stay motivated with di fferent excercises every day. The FitCamp for Teen Girls is a unique program at the studio that encourages teens to build their strength and confidence.

    Eastside Fitness is also committed to creating a sense of community within the studio. They have launched a Humans of Eastside Fitness series on their blog, which profiles members of the studio on their fitness journeys, with the goal of  documenting the diverse community of people who regularly come to Eastside Fitness.
