David Hemingway, 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, ACE
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.
Favourite WOD (Workout of the Day): The Seven
Least Favourite WOD: Fran
Favourite Exercise: Burpees and Kipping Pull-ups
Least Favourite Exercise: Deadlift
Favourite Cheat Meal: White Spot’s Double Double Burger
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 LOVE being here and hardly considered it a J-O-B.
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 boot camp class was a challenge, but I LOVED it; and it changed my life and catapulted me into a holistic and healthy lifestyle. 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 it’s clients just that, focusing on health from several aspects.
Something about me that not many people know is that I was in school to become an international corporate lawyer as I love languages, justice and experiencing new culture. Since then my passion has shifted to health.
Once upon a time I was a competitive martial artist, but my training was placed on pause after an injury, and I still aspire to return to my training.
I used to teach children’s karate and loved watching their technique improve and their self-confidence soar. When not in the gym you will most likely find me with my amazing sons. I enjoy hiking, jogging, and camping.
