Josh SmithPersonal Trainer
My name is Josh Smith, and I am a Personal Trainer/Nutrition Coach!
I started my fitness journey because I was not happy with how I physically looked in the mirror, no confidence. I started out by creating the habit of going to the gym and incorporating it in my daily routine. Some days would be weights and others just cardio. Creating the habit of just going into the gym was my focus. Weeks turned into months then years, with more and more results weekly! I have successfully created healthy habits, gained muscle/ lost fat all over, and I entered my first bodybuilding competition 2022. Nutrition got better, eating more protein and veggies, less overly processed and chemical foods. Remember, food is 80% of the battle.
My Certifications include;
- Can Fit Pro Personal Trainer Certificate

Hi, I’m Mark Lopez
I grew up in the Philippines. I played many sports growing up, such as basketball, soccer, and baseball. When I was 16, I moved to Vancouver and continued to play basketball. I first stepped foot in the gym at 18 years old and never looked back.
After attending University, I continued to stay active and did three years of boxing and Muay Thai Kickboxing. I currently powerlift as I love the feeling of being strong!
Throughout my few years of training others, I have helped many men and women build muscle and strength in their fitness journeys.
I specialize in building muscle and strength and love seeing people get strong. I’ve made it my mission to help as many individuals as possible to reach their fitness goals and beyond. I firmly believe that the fit version of yourself increases your quality of life and your capacity for life.
You can book an assessment with me and start your fitness journey together.
