About Norma SheaneHaving played soccer from a very young age, I quickly fell in love with a lifestyle revolving around health and fitness. Growing up I followed that passion and continued playing soccer at the university level. The leadership skills I developed along the way landed me the role of Team Captain in my final seasons. This allowed me to continue practicing my leadership skills, as well as giving me the opportunity to lead by example while still being a part of a team. Now having finished my university career I still play soccer however, I am now expanding my horizons in the realm of fitness and always looking to try new ways of being active. With my personal training clients I continue to let my leadership skills shine through but I also like to think of my clients and I as a team that works together to help them reach, and surpass, their fitness goals. We are in this together, so let's get moving!
NSCA Personal Trainer
About Sean SealeMy name is Sean, I'm a father, husband and coach dedicated to help people live better lives through strength training and education. I believe that patience and consistency are the two pillars that will lead you to achieving the goals you set for yourself. Exercise is only a part of the equation: other lifestyle factors like sleep, stress levels and nutrition will have a significant effect on how you respond to training and need to be addressed accordingly. I don't believe in running you into the ground day in and day out. I help you build a base of sound movement, practical strength and knowledge so that you can live a long and healthy life. If you want to look good and feel good without having to train like an Olympian, I can help you with that.

About Jena FraserJena has been a Registered Massage Therapist and practicing Strength and Conditioning Coach since 2010.

Integrating movement education with manual therapy, Jena enjoys creatively problem solving dysfunctions which limit performance in sport and activity. While attending university, Jena worked for 3 years as the Athletic Trainer for the UBC Women’s Ice Hockey team, where she realized her passion for manual therapy and high level sports conditioning. Since then, Jena has worked with Provincial Figure Skaters, National Women’s Soccer team, NHL players, and Senior PGA golfers. Jena earned a Bachelors Degree in Human Kinetics (Exercise Science stream) from the University of British Columbia in 2008, and continued on to complete a Diploma of Massage Therapy from the West Coast Collage of Massage Therapy in 2010. After graduation, Jena was licensed by the College of Massage Therapy of British Columbia (CMTBC) as a Registered Massage Therapist, and certified by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Jena places high value in continuing education and learning the subtleties of the human body and its mechanics.

Registered Holistic Nutritionist
About Connie SearsHello! I’m so excited to be able to say that I’m the resident Holistic Nutritionist R.H.N. here at Function Health Club and wanted to start by saying that I LOVE food and physical activity! I was a ballerina from age 3 to 16 and played a variety of sports all through grade school, soccer being a favourite. I learned that eating properly was a key element in having enough energy to keep up with my active lifestyle. Plus, I love eating and eating delicious foods. My interest in nutrition really began due to being lactose intolerant and learning about how to avoid certain foods. I began reading labels from a young age and started to understand what goes into the foods we eat. That led to a life-long interest in eating the best way for my body’s needs. (Jonathan, you can omit this section if the bio is too long) As an adult and a vegetarian, I started to see just how important food is in keeping us happy and healthy. That led me obtaining my certification, so I could gain more understanding and share the things I’d learned with others. I believe in eating for balance and giving your body what it needs to function at its best. I’m here to support you with any healthy goals you may have, using an informative and positive approach. I look forward to working with you!
