Kris Schjelderup, Innovative Fitness

Young Professional of the Year

Kris spent his childhood growing up and playing all his sports in Coquitlam. He is extremely passionate about his hometown and loves the fact he has been able to make a career for himself in his backyard. Kris entered into the health and wellness field with Innovative Fitness in West Vancouver. Over six years, he has helped grow that business to the highest revenue it has still experienced in over 20 years of existence.

Reveling in the leadership role, he decided to jump in with two feet and open up his own Innovative Fitness back in his hometown of the Tri-Cities. In November of 2009, he opened the doors to Innovative Fitness Port Moody. Over 8 years, the location saw continuous success, and in October of 2016, Kris opened a second location in Coquitlam.

He is a passionate leader, manager, and business operator that is focused on bettering himself both personally and professionally. Since he opened his first location in Port Moody, has been able to purchase his first home in Anmore, a rental property in Port Moody, a commercial building in Port Moody (which IF resides in) and open up a second IF location. He is a great example of how a young professional can work, live, and play in the Tri-Cities.
