Danny Harris Jenna Howe Andrew Lai Alan Poole

Danny was born in Victoria BC, and has been in the fitness industry for five years helping people achieve their personal fitness goals. He is very passionate about helping people improve their health! His education and professional background has provided him with extensive knowledge and experience. Danny is a certified personal trainer, has a degree in Recreation & Health, and has experience working as a fitness trainer for the Canadian Forces. In addition, Danny has trained at the Pacific Institute of Sports Excellence and has been a consultant to various television shows. Through these opportunities he has been able to excel in a broad range of fitness disciplines. Danny believes first and foremost exercise should be safe. A close second is that exercise should bring results, and last but certainly not least; exercise should be fun... well... fun-is. "The most common reasons for people to give up on exercising are injury, lack of results, and boring workouts."

Originally from Ontario, Jenna relocated to Victoria in 2011 and joined the Camosun Fitness & Recreation team shortly thereafter. After years of working with Police Foundations students and teaching a variety of fitness classes, Jenna's primary focus is physical rehabilitation and concussion therapy. Currently, you can find Jenna personal training and teaching fitness classes at Camosun and working in private practice providing chronic pain, concussion, and injury rehabilitation within the Greater Victoria area.

Andrew was born and raised in Victoria, BC. He loved playing sports while growing up, and still enjoys a pick up game here and there. What got Andrew into personal training was his love for sport. He knew he had to start lifting weights to overcome injuries and to compete. As he progressed from different personal trainers and coaches, he decided to learn proper lifting himself. He graduated with a Diploma in Exercise & Wellness and is now certified by the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology as a Certified Personal Trainer. He specializes in building strength and fixing poor posture. He has worked with a wide range of individuals including wheelchair athletes, children, youth, elderly, and everything in between.

Alan has been a jock since learning to walk more than a half century ago. Over the years he's added running, cycling, hockey, weight training, and anything with a ball or that you could bet on to his repertoire of activities. Alan began his fitness and nutrition career 35 years ago and for the past 14 has been part of the Camosun team. He's particularly proud of his many years of work as strength and conditioning coach for the Chargers Athletics program and his time developing the Police Fit program to prepare Criminal Justice students for the physical demands of police work. Nowadays, you can find Alan at the fitness centre on the Interurban Campus just waiting to help you meet your health and fitness goals.
