Personal Trainer Vancouver and Crossfit Vancouver Instructor- Teri-Lynn Nelson

While at Brock University Teri-Lynn competed as a varsity cross-country athlete while continuing her other sports, and finding a love for weightlifting. After university BC became the perfect landing pad, enabling Teri-Lynn to enjoy all her sports year round!

When not training her clients or group coaching, you’ll still usually find Teri-Lynn in the gym doing CrossFit, Olympic lifting, hitting some heavy deadlifts, or playing around with skill work. Otherwise, she’ll be outside playing soccer, tennis, golf, or maybe at an arena figure skating.
One of Teri-Lynn’s goals is to handstand walk across the length of the gym, so you’ll often see her upside down practicing. Teri-Lynn is also on a road to hit a provincial record in her deadlift. She’s aiming to lift over 3x her bodyweight. Stay tuned!
