To foster a love for health and fitness in our community, while supporting people to achieve their goals, take ownership for their wellbeing, and become the best version of themselves.
We believe health is like a circle: all aspects interconnected – body, mind, & well being. In order to achieve maximum health, you need to work on each of these components.
Who We Are
Wade and Mary Dickinson are the founders of Fusion Fitness & Nutrition. Having never previously met, they both decided to quit their jobs in 2013 to pursue their passion of personal training.

Both Wade and Mary grew up playing team sports and strength training from a young age. They developed a passion for endurance sports, and more specifically, running, during their time working at the gym. They have completed ultra-marathons, multiple marathons, triathlons, fondos, as well as adventure tourism around the world.
In 2018 they decided to take their entrepreneurial skills to the next level by opening up their own personal training business based out of North Vancouver. Wade and Mary both have over eight years of experience in the fitness industry, and a plethora of knowledge when it comes to functional training with a wide range of clientele. They offer strength training, run coaching, as well as nutrition coaching.
