Welcoming Erika to the Ownership Team at Blitz!


wpid-download_20150520_122143-01.jpegBlitz Conditioning is pleased to announce that Erika Barootes has joined Brett Kirkland and Chris Tse as the newest co-owner.

Over the past five years, Blitz Conditioning Inc. has focused on building community and offering a unique experience to their clients. 2015 is a year of ambitious goals for the company which includes welcoming a new partner onboard.

Erika Barootes will be joining the ownership team, responsible for Internal Operations and External Relations. Erika is no stranger to the fitness community or Blitz Conditioning. She started as a client with the studio, began instructing HIIT classes and will now be a member of the leadership team who will shape the future of the studio and Edmonton fitness.



Erika’s passion for community, the City of Edmonton and leading a healthy active lifestyle aligns with the principles and vision Brett Kirkland and Chris Tse founded Blitz Conditioning Inc. on.

“I could not be more excited to be a part of the Blitz Team. As someone that is a huge advocate of fitness, our city, and the great people that reside here – I know this is the only place where I could make something like this a reality.”

Erika’s background and experience in the private and public sector will bring a new perspective to the team. This diverse and fierce group will build on the company’s current successes to ensure Blitz Conditioning has the best culture to train and be trained.

The addition of Barootes is the first of many great announcements to come from Blitz this year, as they continue to push the envelope of the fitness industry and focus on helping people meet and exceed their expectations.
