Weight Training Attendant

Although new to the Mission Leisure Centre team, Katie started her fitness journey a couple of years ago as a self-proclaimed “overweight, sedentary office worker”. She was incredibly fortunate to find an amazing personal trainer with compassion, empathy, knowledge, and willingness to help her through her personal challenges.

As Katie worked towards her weight loss goals, she found how much of an impact her trainer really made in her journey which led to her newfound passion for not only fitness but maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Katie realized how she wanted to help others the way she was helped; to help others find their own self-worth and passion within this great community.

Katie is now a fully certified ACE Personal Trainer, very eager and excited to put all of her dedication and hard work into making others truly believe in themselves and push to limits they did not know existed.

Aqua Fit/Land Instructor, Weight Training Attendant & Personal Trainer

Tawnya Church joined the City of Mission Fitness team in 2021 and holds designations in Group Fitness, Aqua Fitness, Weight Training, Personal Training, Zumba and Active Aging.

Tawnya started her fitness journey after realizing that something was missing in her life… her love of fitness and sports!  Being a busy mom of 2 girls makes it hard to fit it all in all the time.  Now that they are bigger, it was time for her to follow her passion again.

Office worker for many years and a stay at home mom this once very active athlete in many sports decided it was time for a change in 2013.  Starting with Zumba because she loves to dance and loved the feeling a Zumba workout gave her and wanted to share that with all she could.  Pushed by her Mentor, Sue, she took the plunge and got all her certifications through CFES for many of her designations to be able to share with more people.

Fitness makes her happy.  She really wanted to share that happiness with others especially the elders and people getting back into fitness that may feel intimidated.  With a soft, friendly approach and an at-your-pace fitness process, Tawnya has helped many enjoy getting to the fitness level that they desire.

I look forward to helping many reach their goals, whether in our Weight Room or in one of our Land or Aqua Fitness classes!

When not at the gym, she is boating with her family in the summers, skiing in the winters and playing softball or volleyball, or coaching her daughter’s hockey and softball teams.
