It's never too late to become what you might have been.



My name is Alejandra, but every one calls me "Ali".

I've been a fitness trainer for over 30 years, I still can't believe it's been that long!


I'm passionate about health & fitness. I love to help and inspire people to live a healthy lifestyle so they can feel their best.

I believe life is beautiful and we should enjoy ourselves as much as possible.

We can do that best in a healthy body.

My style is non-competitive and encouraging.

I like to create a sense of community in my classes.




Choreographed to beautiful music this rejuvenating class combines stretching techniques from exercise physiology, dance and yoga to lengthen muscles, improve range of motion, enhance balance and prevent injury. Stretch progressions and individual attention is given making this class suitable for all flexibility levels. Not only great for the body but wonderful for the mind.

Tuesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays 8:00am @ Kitsilano Community Centre


Improve your strength, posture and alignment in a full-body workout where every exercise is based in the core - the natural girdle that wraps around the waist flattening the belly and supporting the back. The class incorporates the use of weights and elements from Pilates all taught in a supportive non-competitive environment.

Mondays 5:30pm @ Kitsilano Community Centre

Saturdays 10:30am @ Kitsilano Community Centre


A satisfying class that will release tight muscles, myofascial tissue (the thin tissue that holds the insides of our body together) and any knots. It will increase flexibility, circulation (blood flow and oxygen), improve performance, reduce stress and even reduce cellulite. It will restore tissue so that the body can function as it should. All levels welcome!

Mondays 6:45pm @ Kitsilano Community Centre


Pilates is a form of exercise done with concentration and control. It's a full body workout with no impact on joints. The basis of Pilates is to build CORE strength - the girdle-like cylinder that wraps around the torso to support the back and bring in the waistline. It improves, alignment, balance, coordination, circulation, flexibility and posture. All levels welcome!

Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays 9:15am @ Kitsilano Community Centre


Groove to the beats of salsa, merengue and international rhythms in a fun fitness program that feels more like a dance party than a workout! Ali's easy to follow class is ideal for those who love to boogie but are not looking for overly complicated steps, ideal for beginners.

"You are an excellent instructor

and a great inspiration to me.

Love how you explain each exercise; you are detailed and very knowledgeable!

I have seen results."

"My physio cannot believe what you've done with my core."

"I used to think the aches and pains were just part of life, now I realize I just needed to stretch!"

"I am convinced that it is primarily due to your classes, and your individual assistance, that I am finally gaining the core strength and the flexibility that I had been unable to acquire in spite of a quite comprehensive and regular exercise program."
