Do you know Mike? Owner, leader, and the man behind everything that is Revive. Moving to Canada when he was 5, Mike understands how difficult it can be to ‘fit in’ with new groups, create connections and build relationships. Knowing that many people also feel this way about fitness, his main drive for starting Revive was to provide a sense of belonging through fitness and community. Mike has worked passionately in the fitness industry for over 10 years, working with elite level athletes to those working through injury rehabilitation. When not at Revive (which isn’t very often) Mike loves exploring the city, going on new adventures with his daughter and wife, and is always on the hunt for a good bowl of noodles!
Tish brings her humorous and fun side to Revive after being serious in the oil patch for 20+ years. A lifelong love of sports and fitness led her to recently take a detour in her career path as she obtained her ACE certification in personal training. She is excited to get you working hard and having fun in the studio. Free time (what is that?!) is spent with her husband and two teenage kids, playing hard and coming up with great oldies playlists just for you!
From being on the gym floor to climbing onto a mountain top, Kelsey has a thirst for life. Her personality shines when she’s adventuring out with her husband and daughter, discovering new places to explore, and doing any activity that generates a positive emotional response. Kelsey loves to bring this passion onto the gym floor to keep the energy levels high during a class. She believes that fitness should be related to what people love to do outside the gym to keep them motivated. Kelsey knows that creating a workout relevant to the activities in people’s lives is how you achieve the best results, and ultimately create a balanced lifestyle.

Shai is the resident Brit (or was it Aussie? Or Kiwi?) of our front desk team. Originally from Israeli, Shai moved to the UK at the age of 6, and ended up in Calgary after travelling the world in 2015. She has a degree in Psychology and a Masters in Advertising & Marketing. While sports and fitness have always had a place in her life, she understands the importance of having a healthy mind too. Shai grew up participating in all manners of sports, including gymnastics, dancing, and horse-riding, and still carries a passion for them despite no longer being very good at any of them. She discovered a love for surfing and scuba diving while attending university, and, most recently, has developed a love for skiing!
Two of Shai's favourite things include meeting new people and helping them out. So if you have any issues or concerns just let her know and she will go out of her way to resolve the matter right away.

Maddy is a BC import and a small town girl at heart! She is an avid animal lover, travel bug infectee, small business supporter, pen pal and unapologetically loud laugher. Health is her main passion, but balance is her middle name. She is an integral part of the Revive front desk team by day and a Naturopathic Doctor by...later that day. Give her a warm YYC welcome most weekday mornings!

Emily is thrilled to be the newest “Reviver”, and you will soon see her teaching classes, at the front desk, and behind the scenes on social media! After an 8-year career in marketing, Emily decided that the desk life just wasn’t cutting it any more and has jumped 100% into the world of health and fitness, obtaining her AFLCA accreditation in Group Fitness and CanFitPro Personal Training Certification. As a client of Revive first, Emily fell in love with the incredible team and amazing workout, and quickly became absorbed into the family. When not rocking out to 90s music or reminding her clients that they can do anything for 30 seconds, Emily can be found running through Sandy Beach Park, educating on the benefits of life in stretchy pants at lululemon, or drinking copious amounts of Sauvignon Blanc in Canmore with her husband Ross. Her favourite music includes country, Kenny Loggins, and show tunes. Which is why she isn’t allowed to make the playlists ;-)
