Pilar joined the Fit 4 Two team as an instructor in 2010 and was soon a fan favourite among the moms in Yaletown. She loved working with this specialty population and eventually joined her participants by becoming a mom to Maximus in 2014. She now has another boy Connor who was born in 2016
When the Fit 4 Two Vancouver East franchise came up for sale Pilar’s dream of supporting and empowering women in her own community became a reality. Pilar has been running Fit 4 Two Vancouver East Franchisee since 2014 and now will be running Fit 4 Two Ladner/Tsawwassen and and can’t wait to meet all the moms and moms-to-be at class.

About my style, methods and philosophy: As a mother myself I know the challenges that women can face trying to stay in shape before, during and after pregnancy. My goal is to help you reach your own personal goals in a smart and effective way. I also would like to teach you how you can learn to train by yourself so you will be able to move on from my training and create your own regiment that is specifically tailored to you. I personalize programs to serve your particular needs as a new parent, mom-to-be or both. We will focus on improving posture and strength while preventing injuries and burn out. While I specialize in pre and postnatal fitness, I welcome general population clients as well.
Where I train: I train out of my home. I have created an open space where we can train with a variety of equipment that will guarantee that you will get a great workout. If you need to bring your baby he or she is welcome. If you prefer the outdoors I also train at parks around town and provide all the necessary equipment.

Welcome!Melani Adsley, RMT
Registered Massage Therapist
I moved to Ladner with my husband in October 2015, shortly before we welcomed our first child. It’s already clear that leaving Vancouver’s West End to raise our daughter in Ladner’s more supportive and closely knit community was a great decision for our family.
I graduated from the West Coast College of Massage Therapy, and have been a practicing RMT since 2010. I am happy to have opened my new practice earlier this year at The Birch Tree - Family Wellness. My approach to massage therapy includes trigger point therapy, Swedish massage, myofascial release as well as joint mobilizations. Treatments will be tailored to your wants and needs; no two people are the same.
My massage therapy practice has a focus on treatments for expecting and new mothers, though all patients are welcome. During prenatal and postnatal massage treatments, a pregnancy pillow may be used so moms can be massaged lying on their stomachs safely and comfortably.
Over the past two years, through pregnancy and the first sixteen months of my daughter’s life, I’ve developed a new perspective on motherhood and the benefits of massage therapy for new moms. In addition to relaxation and pain management, massage therapy has general benefits for your physical and mental health. And moms, we need to take care of ourselves if we’re to be present and healthy for our families.
