About the team
Jessica "JKilla" WilsonOur manager and head trainer for both North Vancouver and Burnaby comes to us from the 9Round team in Calgary, AB. Jessica grew up playing competitive sports all her life and finally discovered her love for kickboxing several years ago. She eventually decided to pursue her passion full-time and quit her desk job, moving out to join us here in Vancouver. Jessica is incredibly passionate about what we do here at 9Round and really knows how to work one-on-one with each individual member to achieve maximum results. "Once I tried 9Round, I knew I had to be a part of it. Finding a workout that I genuinely enjoy has changed my life in such a positive way and kickboxing is such an empowering way to get fit. I truly love what I do, helping people push past their limits and exceed their expectations here in the studio. 9Round to me, became a kind of sweat therapy."
Mark "Marky" ClaroBorn and raised on the North Shore, I have always been surrounded by combat sports and fitness. I grew up learning Karate, then switched my focus onto Western boxing. Besides dancing around throwing hands in a boxing ring, I’d most likely be chasing after dogs, tripping over roots on a hike, or trying to learn the lyrics to Shaggy’s - “Angel”. I’m very lucky to be apart of the 9round team, because there is no better feeling than helping a client with goals or even a client who might be having a rough day, and allow them to leave the gym smiling and feeling better than they did when they walked in.
Claire "CSugar" VerlaanA first-year student new to Vancouver just trying to get her life sorted out. Claire recently moved to Vancouver from a small town and so far is loving the city life. While balancing full time school, part time work, and trying to keep a social life, you can find her downtown taking pictures, boarding at Whistler, taking notes in a café, or hanging out with everyone at the gym. 9Round has made it possible for me to find something I am truly passionate about. The energy in our gym is like no other and I’m so proud to be a part of it.
Kelly "Waldo" WollinMeet Kelly, one of our newer trainers here at 9 Round. Kelly might look like a familiar face because she was a member before becoming a trainer! Born and raised here in North Vancouver (currently living UPSTAIRS!), she has a passion for nutrition and fitness. In her spare time you'll find her exploring North Vancouver with her little one or creating/trying new recipes. Bringing lively energy and a bright smile to the floor, she makes a great addition to our team!
Ralph "Rouge" GelacioRalph “ROUGE” Gelacio has always had a passion for boxing and martial arts. His love for the sport of boxing began from watching the likes of the Great Muhammad Ali, Manny Pacquiao, Mike Tyson. He also did an Asian martial art called Arnis or Eskrima, the National Martial Arts of the Philippines back home. His hobbies include pretending to be a singer, and eating protein bars, and can only leave his shirt on for up to 2 hours in a row. Ralph is currently studying and finishing up his studies to become a Certified Personal Trainer and get his Fitness diploma at Hilltop Academy. He is a strong believer of giving all you can in all that you do; an idea that he hopes he instills all those he encounters as a trainer at 9Round. Being a trainer at 9Round has given Ralph the opportunity to pursue one of his great joys: helping others achieve their health and fitness goals.
