Meet your Clinic Coordinator!

Clinic Coordinator: Angela Wagner

About Angela: am a Kinesiologist interested improving the health and well-being of our community. I was the InTraining Clinic Coordinator at Kitsilano Community Centre for two years and I am absolutely thrilled to learn with and from the Hillcrest crew this year! Moving regularly and "outdorphins" has been a lifelong adventure! I like anything that ends in -ing: laughing, busting a move, biking, forest-bathing, trail running, climbing, skiing, catching up with friends jogging along the seawall, and giving back by helping support InTraining participants and leaders explore your path to foster and maintain health. My goal is to encourage you to thrive by educating and motivating you to move regularly, rest up, eat to feel nourished and to cheer everyone on as you become fitter, faster, stronger, healthier and more resilient!

How long have you been involved with the InTraining Program? 3 Years, and 4th Sun Run

What is your favourite InTraining memory? It's so cool to see participants grow and connect! Everyone is capable of more than we think, we can give more than we think and we are all stronger than we think. I love meeting you, spending time with you and learning more about your story. Seeing you crush your goals is next-level inspiring. We really help each other and learn how to use exercise as a tool for balance and well-being. Whether it's paradise-perfect in Vancouver, a rainy monsoon, or snowy February, we get our sessions in! It's always nice to see camaraderie and positivity! It's powerful to be a part of a supportive community. The high fives and smiles at the end of the day are pretty epic.

Favourite place to run/walk? We live in the BEST spot! So many options. Queen Elizabeth Park! We are lucky to be close by to the spectacular False Creek bridge loop by Olympic Village, Trout Lake trails, and the sheltered Langara Golf Course. If we are in the mood for a field trip, we are a short 15 minute drive to Pacific Spirit Park, Arbutus Ridge, Stanley Park, or Jericho-Spanish Banks!

What can participants look forward to this year with the Hillcrest group? A warm, friendly, encouraging atmosphere with experienced leaders. We line-up some awesome guest-speakers, attend a mid-way 5K near Olympic Village with some close by groups, and are already looking forward to our traditional potluck!
