Meet Adrian

Adrian’s (he/him) fitness journey began later in life. At 40, he decided to leave the office behind to become a full time personal trainer with a focus on pain-free exercise. He quickly discovered a passion for helping others achieve their lifestyle goals.

Adrian has spent the past 10 years honing his craft and exploring everything from kickboxing, HIIT cardio and weightlifting to kettlebell sports and mobility work. He specialises in group fitness and personal training for those new or returning to exercise. 

Adrian is especially proud of his accomplishments from 2020 to 2022 through the pandemic. He went from training clients in backyards, alleys and in the park to creating a small studio in a 300 square foot facility in the historic Artscape building on Shaw street. Having out-grown the space, Adrian launched Recess Fit Club in Oct 2022.

Meet Millie

As our resident operations manager (and gym muralist!), Millie (she/her) is the mastermind behind our client experience. She exited the corporate world in 2022 to bring Recess Fit Cub to life.

Millie is driven by how exercise has empowered her to feel good in her body, be independent, and to find community. 

She brings the enthusiasm for creating an energizing environment and welcoming vibe. Millie makes sure that we live up to our mission of helping everyone make fitness a meaningful and positive part of life.

When she’s not finding new ways to make Recess even more awesome, Millie (a life-long horticulturist) can probably be found tending to the many gym plants.

Age : How dare you?

Experience : Yes
