Mike Hamill, a 40+ year fitness industry veteran and past owner/operator of several fitness facilities and fitness industry related companies in the lower mainland BC, has died. He was 68 years old.

 

As expressed in his obituary, Mike’s journey through life was marked by his unwavering dedication to health and fitness. His passion for helping people knew no bounds, encouraging countless individuals to embark on their own transformative journeys.

 

As a Fitness Champion, some of his vast accomplishments included being an Olympic weightlifter, powerlifter, body builder as well as being named Mister Vancouver, Mister BC and Mister Western Canada.
