MEMBER PROFILE: Meet Marlene Braam


Meet Marlene Braam:

Active Mom to 3 busy athlete sons! Congratulations on your success Marlene, we are so proud of you and are honoured to have you as a part of our TEAM!

Member Since: 2006

Inspired By: My Kids! I really want to be able to  keep up with them!

Motivated By: 
I wanted to continue to play the high level sports that I had prior to having children, and I was dealing with injuries, and complications from my surgery and lack of fitness.  I was no longer able to be a "weekend warrior".

How did you learn of TFPT?  I Knew Liz as being one of the first reputable Trainer's in Kelowna. I called her and she felt Shannon, the Team's kinesiologist was the best fit for me.

Why did you choose TFPT?  
Professionalism. I felt like my trainer, Shannon, was going to be able to work with me to get me in the shape/condition I was looking for.

What has surprised you most about working with Team Fitness?
That working with TFPT works!  I have tried on my own, and I have failed.  It seems pretty basic, but going just once a week to see Shannon has enabled me to achieve my fitness and health goals. 

What keeps you coming back to TFPT?
The results! Training is also something I love - it is my "happy place".

Accomplishments: 
I have had great gains in my overall fitness.  I have lost weight, I have better mobility, and I have less pain.  My first goal about 6 years ago was to hike the West Coast Trail.  Every day on the trail I thanked Shannon for getting me prepared for the difficulty of that hike.  I am currently planning/training to hike Mount Kilimanjaro next June.

What would be your TFPT elevator pitch?
I guess what I think other people should know about Team Fitness is that working with their trainers works!  No matter your age, your current fitness level, your weight, or your goals, they will work with you.  You do not need to be an athlete, or recovering from an injury or surgery to work with a TFPI trainer.

Favorite movie:  When Harry Met Sally and It's a Beautiful Life

Favorite book: Tough to pick one! One of my favorites is A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mystre

Where is your favorite travel destination and why? 
I love to travel, and go to new places.  My last big holiday was to the Galapagos, and Machu Pichu.  It was AMAZING!

What is a quality you most admire in others? Honesty and sincerity

If you could have dinner with one person, living or non-living, who would it be and why? 

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be with my Mom.  She passed away 17 years ago, before I had children, and there are many, many things I would like to be able to share with her - like all the things I was wrong about, and she was right!

Congratulations Marlene on all of your accomplishments in and out of the studio!
