Kalev is a Yaletown personal trainer who is probably responsible for more of the hot bodies walking around the hood than any other trainer. So…Kalev, we thank you!
Kalev has also helped train the BC Lion Cheerleaders (The Felions), local celebs, and you probably seen him running bootcamps at various locations in Yaletown. Kalev’s success has culminated to him opening his own gym called Kalev Fitness Solution late last year which is located in the landmark Sun Tower over in Cross Town.
The Secrets of the Ripped Man are about to be spilled.
What do you do?
Through KalevFitness I help people change their lifestyle, and get where they want to go with their fitness.

I have lived in Yaletown for 7 years.
Best place to get lunch?
All you can eat sushi @ Toyama… yum!
Best place for dinner?
I love earls, cause I used to work there, and the tandori chicken is to die for… but when it isn’t the feature I like to go to Goldfish (my friend Curtis is the Head Chef there!)
What’s the one thing about Yaletown that only a local would know of?
The best place to get healthy food is the salad shops (one is on Richards and Robson, one on Pacific by Davie) and that Homer street used to be one way, traffic was better then…
One word to describe Yaletown.

J.Lo and Ben Affleck 8 years ago working out at the gym I was training at.
