Susan Stokhof owns a successful online boutique, which specializes in stylish bicycle accessories. Living on and off in Amsterdam she was inspired by the cycling culture. The Dutch have embraced the bicycle as a regular part of daily life and they always dress for their destination. She has been cycling around the cityscape for over a decade now and recognized the challenges women face when using a bicycle as a form of transportation and soon realized the need for more specialized solutions for accessories and apparel.

When returning to Canada Susan witnessed the rapid growth of the bicycle movement, especially for women who use bicycles as a form of transportation. Her objective, taking the words from Mikael Colville-Anderson, is to “bring sexy back to cycling,” by creating a visual and practical environment where ladies can express their cycle fashion style while navigating the urban landscape, on or off their bike.

In her spare time Susan can often be found cycling to work, to local shops & markets, meeting friends for coffee, tour cycling in the mountains of some far off place and always in pursuit of the perfect espresso.

Stacy grew up in his father’s contracting business and stepped on his first jobsite at the age of 5 to flaunt child labour laws. He grew up on the wrongest side of the crookedest tracks and swore the whole time that when he grew up he d get a normal job. That normal career never really seemed to materialize and Stacy has founded numerous entrepreneurial ventures throughout his career starting with a medical technology firm at the age of 25.
The Vancouver Sun named Stacy one of their “British Columbians to Watch” and he has been a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year, the Caldwell Partners National Top 40 Under 40, and the BDC Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards (lost to Sarah McLachlan, some hot shot from Toronto and a home-delivery grocery guy respectively). He lives on a plane between Victoria and Vancouver, keeps his boat stocked with cigars and Guinness, plays second fiddle to the dog, and manages to keep a spot on his soccer team in spite of their repeated attempts to get him to retire.

Smiler, Fun Peddler, Kinesiology Freak and Connector. Whether you are taking a class, course, workshop or session from me, my mission is to provide an unparalleled social experience and extraordinary empowerment. I teach people how to move, breathe, focus, push, leap, and to be conscious, kind and powerful. I love health and wellness.

I teach a variety of fitness classes from Barre, Pilates and Yoga to Weight Training, Cycling and Cardio Conditioning. I truly believe that the first step to increased fitness and vitality is enjoyment and I target that with every student, participant and client I interact with. Exercise has to resonate with you and move you. I pride myself on having exceptional fitness class design and incredible delivery to maximize enjoyment over anything else in my classes.

My personal health practices and wellness philosophy are deeply rooted in my Kinesiology background, honed and refined through eleven years as a Fitness Professional. I have an array of complementary disciplines and certifications that have encouraged a very holistic and individualized approach to wellness.

My Education Degree has also instilled a real love for teaching in me, and since 2009 I have been certifying fitness professionals with Canfitpro. As a ProTrainer I instruct, mentor and guide new Personal Trainers, Group Fitness Instructors and Nutrition Specialists. I love bringing my upbeat, interactive style of teaching to my certification courses. I pride myself on presenting material and fitness concepts in a way that all students can capitalize on participation and maximize their learning.

Through workshops, one on one coaching or group instruction, I pride myself on breaking boundaries and discovering new peaks in health, physical freedom and wellness. I look forward to seeing you in a class or course!
