Meet Brent & Renee Friesen

Meet Brent & Renee Friesen

Brent Friesen was born and raised in Williams Lake. As a fitness fan and avid cyclist, he has spent almost as much time on a bike as off. According to Brent, Williams Lake is the ideal place for bikers like him. "The mountain bike trails are phenomenal here," he says. In fact, Brent enjoys both mountain and road biking and probably knows all the local sweet spots for cycling.

Brent began his fitness career teaching aerobics and aqua-fit classes in Williams lake over 20 years ago. Later, he moved to Vancouver to further his education and obtained personal trainer certification and eventually pursued Pilates instructor training while teaching in the Vancouver area. But he and his wife, Renee, realized that city life was not for them, and they made their way back to Williams Lake with their young son and opened up Essence Pilates and Fitness Studio.

Brent and Renee are both grateful for the lighter, more casual pace of life that Williams Lake provides them, as well as all of the enriching outdoor and indoor fitness and recreational opportunities. It is exactly the environment that they appreciated about Williams Lake during their own growing up years and which they desire to give to their own family now.
