Carla Rayner - Director of Operations



I'm a mother of four children and a wife to ​Tim, my high-school sweetheart of 24 years. We are fortunate to live on a small acreage just outside of Vernon with two horses, two cats and an awesome dog who loves to join us on hikes and mountain bikes. We moved from South-Western Ontario in 2003 and appreciate the slower paced lifestyle and access to World Class amenities that Vernon offers.


After high school I went to Humber College in Toronto and got my Graphic Design and Marketing Diploma. Soon after graduating, I worked for several Financial Institutions including Richardson Greenshields, RBC DS, Goepel McDermid and Raymond James as an Investor Advisor Assistant. Once we moved to Vernon, I began my fitness career as a Fitness Instructor in 2003, a Personal Trainer in 2004 and a Fitness Manager in 2005, by 2010 I partnered with Rhonda Catt and opened our first Fitness Facility. I have found my background in graphics and finance have helped me become the nuts and bolts of the back end of Training House. 

I love to engage with our members on a daily basis. My goal is to ensure people leave our facility feeling valued and happy. If they're having a bad day, I want them to leave being grateful that they have a supportive community to lean on. I feel my strengths are creating a rapport with people quickly and helping make people feel like they can be safe in an authentic environment. My struggles include walking the talk. I am a giver and often find myself putting my needs on the back burner. 

My future goals include reading the mountains of books I buy but don't read. Training for an event I have registered for with ample time to feel great on race day and following through with my vow to make time for myself to consistently strength train.
