With over 20 years of qualified experience in the health and fitness industry, Curtis Christopherson is the Founder & CEO of WRKOUT, the first connected fitness brand to deliver live, face-to-face personal training optimized for the virtual experience. He is also the owner of Innovative Fitness, North America’s largest network of premium personal training studios.

Based out of Vancouver, Curtis leads over 300 virtual and in-person trainers and was recognized as “Canada’s Top Trainer” in 2020 by Impact Magazine. He has also been featured in notable publications such as Forbes, The Globe and Mail, and SGB Magazine – and was also a former Ernst and Young Canadian Entrepreneur of the Year finalist!

While leading the businesses, Curtis has completed extreme adventures and some incredible physical feats. As examples, Curtis has competed in a 100km Del Sahara desert run, several Half Ironmans, over 15 marathons, been on the podium for multiple adventures, and knocked off some international hikes such as the West Coast Trail (in 21 hrs), Machu Picchu, and Kilimanjaro. He has also been a part of a team that cycled across Canada (which set a Guinness Book of World Records) and Australia to raise over a million dollars for Juvenile Diabetes.

Beyond his years, Curtis will undoubtedly leave an indelible mark on the health and fitness industry and he has no qualms about bringing others along for the journey.
