David H., Coach
David has really enjoyed watching and participating in the growth of our tight-knit community. “When you walk into the gym and are greeted with so many friendly faces, it draws you in every time.”
“Helping athletes evolve their confidence, achieve new milestones, master new skills, and ultimately have them doing things they never believed they were capable,— is what keeps me interested and involved.”
Having been an independently employed private athletic trainer and managing various ”Globo-gyms” in London, South Africa, and the Cayman Islands. He finally arrived back in North Vancouver (the place where he grew up) and continued to train people for the past 12 years.
I wasn’t until 2008 when he discovered CrossFit and instantly became addicted to the community, athleticism and mindset that defines the CrossFit way of life.

Mich Kirk, Coach
CrossFit Level 1
Hi, I am an ACE certified personal trainer and the owner and executive chef of The Maker’s Kitchen which is a catering company that caters to each individuals dietary needs.
I started with Tyron and The Maker’s Body as an overweight and very unhappy woman over 3 years ago.
The boot camp classes and nutritional help from Tyron have drastically changed my life and I’m so grateful to now be a part of the team.
I know what it’s like to be overweight and how hard it is to start a workout program and remain motivated towards your goal. Becoming fit, active, eating clean and living a healthy lifestyle has been a driving force towards becoming a certified trainer and combining my passion of fitness with my love of being a chef. If you need some motivation or if I can help you in any way I’m here to help.
Something you might not know about me is that I grew up riding and training horses as well as playing high level of soccer and ice hockey.

Kristen Binnington, Assistant
Hi there, I am Kristen and welcome to our gym! I have a diploma in Kinesiology from Capilano University as well as my ISSA personal training certificate. I started gymnastics at the age of 6 till 16. When I was 12 I found wrestling and have been doing it for the last 10 years. I was a member of the SFU wrestling team.
I hope to meet all our members either as a receptionist or in the classes. Fitness has always been a part of my life and I can only hope to spread the joy of fitness to everyone around.
