Meet Meray and Her Team


Founder & Creative Director

Meray is a lover of everything health, fitness, fashion and travel related. She is all about creating a life you love, that’s what living well is all about. When Meray is not personal training clients during her day, Meray loves traveling with her husband Dallas, trying new restaurants, and enjoying the beautiful outdoors in her hometown Vancouver, BC.

What is your favourite restaurant? That is too hard to pick! I think my husband and I’s go-to restaurants when we are craving not so healthy food is either Oakwood Canadian Bistro or La Mezcal, in Vancouver.

Where is your favourite place that you’ve visited? Egypt was a very special trip, because it was my first time fully experiencing the Egyptian culture (I’m Egyptian), but, I have to visit New York at least once a year, that city has my heart!

How would you define your personal style? During the day, definitely athletic casual, but when I’m not training clients I would say casual, polished and feminine.

Food Editor

Born into a European family food has always been a strong part of my life.  My favorite past times always include sharing food whether it’s cooking at home or trying out a new restaurant or traveling to far flung places to learn a new food culture. I started cooking at 9 and then moved into food photography in my 20’s and I feel lucky to be able to match my two passions into a career.

Administrative Assistant

Hi I’m Tessa! I handle all things admin for MRF. I weirdly love organization and scheduling more than most things and a good colour coordinated calendar makes me happy! I’ve had the privilege of learning and training with Meray since I was 19. I’ve been able to watch her not only transform my lifestyle but countless other clients both physically and mentally over the years. Flash forward to August 2017 and I’m now a small part of that process!
