About The Maker’s Body CrossFit in North Vancouver
Chris Harrison, Owner and Head Coach
CrossFit Level 1
Since 2008 no CrossFit coach in the lower mainland has taught and programmed more CrossFit classes than Chris has. Experience is at the top of his resume, not just in teaching the movements but safely programming for an entire gym’s worth of athletes.
Chris has coaches some of Western Canada’s top CrossFit athletes and is one of only two people from the North Shore to compete as individual in the CrossFit Games.
While coaching top athletes in the sport of fitness is part of his business, Chris prides himself on his ability to bring the simple fundamental movements to the new CrossFit athlete who’s only goal is to lose weight, get fit and have fun. Since 2008 Chris has taken thousands of athletes just like you through their CrossFit journey from learning how to squat to getting their first pull-up.
Chris has been CrossFit Level 1 certified since 2007.

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.

Tara Naylor, Assistant
Hey there, I am Tara and welcome to our gym. I am so honoured to be a part of The Maker’s Body team. I walked into The Maker’s Body, as a client, the day before my 31st birthday as I decided I needed to get myself in better health. That first class was a challenge, but it was a game-changer for me & I LOVED it! A little while later I joined the team as Tyron’s assistant. I am so passionate about holistic health and wellness and I really value how The Maker’s Body strives to provide its clients just that, focusing on health from several aspects.
Having personal experience with injury and weight-loss struggles I appreciate the value of a great support system and lots of motivation. We strive to provide you with the same encouragement to meet your health and fitness goals.
