MEET THE TEAM
We Are The Best Part Of Our Members’ Day, Every Day!
We work very closely as a TEAM here at BRIK Fitness, so you’ll probably meet and work with each of our team at some point while you’re working out. The customized program you are given to train with remains exactly the same, and will change every 4-6 weeks – regardless of who the fitness coach is that you are working out with. Your schedule is the most important factor to us in determining who we assign to work with you. Check out each team member’s bio below. Any problems or questions with regard to your training program or schedule; please do not hesitate to contact any member of our team.
