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 mainly work outside and on-line right now.

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

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

Kbell+ class (Saturday mornings) is a “bring your own stuff” class – please see class page for info. Location for kettlebells (above photo) is: Sir James Douglas Elementary School Annex, 7668 Borden Street Vancouver (at 61st Ave, between Knight and Argyle)


Punch It Out! classes are also Saturday mornings, at Sir James Douglas half an hour after Kbell+ classes.

Pre-COVID, much of my work, especially boxing, was out of Eastside Fitness, 5788 Fraser Street, Vancouver. I’ll be back there in the fall of 2021 on Saturdays to teach classes, and I have some availability for personal training.
