The Body Connection Concept…

My vision when I started Body Connection Fitness was to focus on personal training with women, but soon after the business was underway I became pregnant with my first and only child.  Instantly, I was wanting to know what was and wasn’t safe during pregnancy so I enrolled myself into a prenatal/postnatal course and started my journey.  After I finished and became a certified prenatal/postnatal fitness specialist I decided I wanted to offer something that I couldn’t find here in Kelowna and that was a class where the moms could workout with their babies alongside!

First class taught was Strollerfit which is still offered in our outdoor months.  From there I grew quickly as the word spread what I was doing.  Then I started offering at home personal training so new moms could still be next to baby and learn the safe way to exercise after baby is born.  This is my passion, I love what I do.  Working with women only as I understand their bodies.

“My goal is to inspire, motivate, and encourage people that are looking to become physically fit.”

Our Team


Kristy Keus-New Partner

A fun, family and adventure – loving fitness enthusiast; I have been a group fitness instructor since 2007. I earned my Personal Training designation in 2011 after I realized that many individuals were desiring my expertise and energy to motivate them through their workouts and journey to health and wellness.  Growing up and living in the Kootenays for most of my life I spent a vast majority of my time enjoying all the nature I was surrounded by. This included many group and personal training sessions outdoors. I owned and operated an indoor cycling studio for a few years where I also taught many classes and trained clients. Having recently moved to Kelowna with my family of 5, I am finding this a great fit for my personality and am very happy to start offering my services here!
My expertise I would say aside from general fitness, would be mom and baby, as I spent a lot of time in this category, Jr Athletics, indoor cycling quite obviously and bootcamps of all sorts. I have taught a wide variety of classes such as step, different types of dance, kickboxing, circuit weight, bosu, stretch and strength, hoop fitness, you name it. Whatever you are looking for we can make it work for you to enjoy your fitness program and achieve the results you are seeking!

Cara Reinelt – Fitness Instructor

I have been in the Okanagan all my life – what an awesome place to live, work and play!  It was never a dream of mine to teach fitness but in 2013 I found POUND Fit. From the first hit of the Ripstix, I knew this was something amazing! I was certified in POUND, followed shortly thereafter with PiYo (also incredible) and Group Fitness Specialist certifications. I love loud music and consider myself a bit of a fitness rebel. For me, fitness HAS to be fun.  I like to have a good time with people I love and Body Connection Fitness is just that.  I joined the team in 2017 and absolutely LOVE being part of this community.  Instructors and clients alike are there to help, support and lift you up so…Grab a set of stix, bring your best ROCKSTAR attitude and Make Some Noise!!  See you in class!
