About the Presenter 

Kimberley Gage is a Certified Personal Trainer working in North Vancouver and Vancouver. 5 years ago she was sedentary, obese and awaiting back surgery. During her post-surgery rehabilitation, she went from being bed ridden to regaining 100% of her function with exercise. This transition inspired her to become a Personal Trainer so she could help others become more active, regardless of their abilities. She learned about the relationship between pain, posture and function and the value of movement, no mater how small. In addition to her Personal Training Certification, Kimberley has also taken Clinical Exercise & Post-Injury Rehabilitation Workshops on Muscle Training & Function and Hip, Knee and Ankle Rehabilitation. Her ideal client is someone who is has a pain, posture or movement issue or concern and wants to restore their function. Outside of work, Kimberley enjoys exploring the outdoors with her husband and son.
