"Thank you for the two months of personal training that has changed not only my body, but my energy levels and overall well-being. With your assistance I lost 10 pounds and gained muscle, but I also want to let you know that my health has improved; my blood pressure levels have dropped so my medications have been reduced. My hands are stronger and the pain from the osteo-arthritis is not as severe. I feel proud of my accomplishments and know that I look better! I feel terrific and YOU are a great coach."

- Eleanor K

"When I first went to Bodyworks I was 45 years old and 286 lbs. (Very out of shape) Dale set me up on a program, monitored my progress and now I'm holding 225 lbs and in the best shape I've ever been. The gym atmosphere is very friendly and supportive. Thank you Dale."

- Daren L

"I started going to Bodyworks about 6 months ago, my goal was to get strong and loose some weight. I hired Dale as my personal trainer, he is professional, punctual and a very motivated person. Dale is committed to my workout for the time that I am there which I really appreciate. Not only is he completely knowledgeable on all aspects of weight training he explains everything that I will be doing during my session and why. Dale can also look at how each session is going and know immediately what part is getting too easy and he will quicklycorrect it. I am seeing great results which encourages me to stay committed to my work out. Even though the workouts are extremely hard I always leave the gym feeling wonderful and looking forward to my next session. I also really enjoy the facility itself, I am always greeted with a smile, it is spotlessly clean and extremely well run."

James Gardiner

Personal Trainer & Performance Specialist and Class Instructor

Jim brings over 20 years of fitness background to Vancouver Island. Originally from the States, his travels have taken him from Rhode Island to New York City, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and finally settling here to further his passion of inspiring others through a fitness and nutrition mindset and how that is applied to everyday life to help clients realize their authentic selves.

He is defined by one word: rowing.


Through this sport Jim was able to transform his meek asthma stricken teenage body into that of a high performance athlete in the US National Development System. More recently he has continued his competitive pursuits on the international master’s circuit competing all over the globe. In addition to working with general fitness and weight loss clients Jim has trained high performance athletes including rowers, triathletes, cyclists, runners, swimmers, and hockey players. He has built a pedigree of success by implementing different training modalities, lab protocols, and outside the box approaches to sport functionality. Some of Jim’s accomplishments include:

• Gold Medal at the 1991 US Olympic Festival Men’s Lightweight 2x • Head Coach of Rowing – Simon Fraser University and University of Rhode Island • Canadian Champion – Men’s Master 1x • US Championships – Silver Medal Men’s Master’s 1x • Over 75 Top 3 finishes in international competition • Over 100 Top 3 finishes for his rowing athletes on the Master’s circuit

Fitness to Jim is a way of life… a mindset by which he governs all aspects of his day to day living. While nutrition is the fundamental foundation to everything he teaches, Jim is also dedicated to imparting knowledge and the skill required for success to his clients in and out of the gym.
