Hi. I’m Meghan O’Connell, a former boxer and now a powerlifter (squat, bench and deadlift). My goal for you is: solid foundations, less pain, and more strength. Perfect for COVID-cautious people as I only work outside and on-line right now.

Currently all training and class participation either outdoors or on-line.

Ready, Set Lift; Unwind; and Oh, My Aching Back! classes are all held on-line.

Kettlebell classes (Saturday mornings) are a “bring your own bell” class. Location for kettlebells (above photo) is: Sir James Douglas Elementary School Annex, 7668 Borden Street Vancouver (at 61st Ave, between Knight and Argyle).

Blast Off! classes are on Saturday afternoon. Please bring a pair of gloves, a band and a mat. Sir Alexander MacKenzie Elementary, 960 East 39th Ave, Vancouver. Class is held at the south side of the school, on E. 40th Ave between Windsor and St. Catherines (photo below, and when it’s not raining, we have more equipment options by using the playground).


Punch It Out! classes are also Saturday afternoons, at MacKenzie immediately following Blast Off classes.

Pre-COVID, much of my work, especially boxing, was out of Eastside Fitness, 5788 Fraser Street, Vancouver
