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.

ENTER THE CONTEST: After I hit the first 100 newsletter subscribers, I will do a random draw among them for a goal-focused package of three 55-minute on-line personal training sessions with me. (Note: I can only train people in Canada.) So subscribe now! Contest ends Nov 15/20. Let your friends know 😉


Currently all training and class participation is outdoors and 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. Location is changing for the rainy season as of Oct 24/20 to: 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).


Ease (Back) In gentle fitness meetup, 2 pm Thursdays, half hour, no charge. Address is 2750 E Kent Ave S – but it says at Elliott. It’s actually a long park and this is a little east of there, more like Blanche at Kent. There is some (limited) parking.

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

Powerlifting and strength training was offered at The Bar Strength & Conditioning, 2nd floor, 8410 Fraser Street.
