Cayden Orallo


Cayden graduated from UBC with a Bachelors's degree in Kinesiology. He is a well-rounded athlete and has competed in various sports growing up (baseball, basketball, and football). Cayden was on track to play college or professional baseball until he tore his ACL which caused him to change life directions. After rehabilitating his ACL, Cayden started riding motorcycles and took up his most recent passion, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). Cayden has competed in BJJ at white belt level and is currently a blue belt under Roy Duquette after 2.5 years of training. When he is not facilitating healing through exercise, Cayden can be found on the mountains snowboarding, in the ocean surfing, playing guitar, hiking/camping, working out, training martial arts, or reading a book/listening to podcasts. He has a passion for helping others achieve their goals and is always looking to improve his practice within Kinesiology.

Marie-Rose Bruskiewicz


Marie-Rose’s interest in exercise and rehabilitation started from being an athlete herself. This led her to complete her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology at Simon Fraser University (SFU) while concurrently competing on the international fencing circuit. Along with her career goals, Marie-Rose is pursuing her dreams of going to the Olympic Games.

With a passion for helping people, Marie-Rose has 8+ years of hands-on experience coaching in a variety of settings, including in groups and one-to-one sessions for active rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, ice skating, and fencing. Currently, Marie-Rose manages and coaches a team of fencers at SFU, hoping to pave the way to a brighter future for fencing in Canadian collegiate athletics.

Marie-Rose also specializes in postpartum exercise. She enjoys supporting female athletes in recovery following pregnancy and delivery, but is eager to help anyone who wants improvement in their pain, posture, fitness, and strength!

She will help you reach your goals with great exercise form, but she is passionate about offering more than just an exercise prescription— she wants to help you take charge of your health and will always be there to cheer you on along the way.

When she’s not working with clients in the gym or fencing, you can find Marie-Rose outdoors hiking, surfing, or reading a good book on a Sunday afternoon.


Juan Jaramillo

Prior to his time at Kin Lab, Juan worked and volunteered at various clinics working with a wide range of clients of varying goals and abilities. Primarily, he worked with patients recovering from injuries sustained from motor vehicle accidents both in-clinic and with hydrotherapy (pool-based active rehab).

Originally from Colombia, Juan is fluent in Spanish as well.

David G Crop

David Grgic

B.Sc Kin

David is a Kinesiologist with a passion for rehabilitation and strength training. He has been powerlifting to some degree for the last seven years, which informs the exercise programs that he designs for clients. While he loves to facilitate the realization that we are stronger than we think, he also cares deeply about formulating exercise programs that are meaningful to the individual and their goals.

David obtained a bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from the University of British Columbia where he was able to explore the evidence related to his passion for movement, rehabilitation, and fitness. He is committed to evidence-informed practice that aligns with his client’s values and for this reason, he offers a person-centered, biopsychosocial approach. David has experience working with clients of varying abilities including people that want to improve their general fitness as well as people with traumatic brain injuries, musculoskeletal injuries, vestibular impairments, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Outside of the clinic, you can find David in the gym, exploring the local mountains with his girlfriend, leather-working, or tending to his latest interest: growing microgreens. He also volunteers at a local long-term care facility where he finds meaning by giving back to his community.
