Meet the Team

Martin Voslar

Personal Trainer, Founder of Iron Lab Strength & Conditioning

Martin Voslar founded Iron Lab Strength and Conditioning in 2011 with a single purpose: to help others achieve the body and life of their dreams so they can live their lives to the fullest.

Martin grew up in the Czech Republic in the infamous “chemical city” Usti nad Labem, known for its plastic melting acid rains and deadly smog conditions. Combined with a lack of interest in sports, Martin’s fitness was less than stellar, should we say.

As a teenager he was flabby with a belly, unable to do a single push up or run for more than 50 meters without gasping for air. He was frustrated about the way he looked and feel, he suffered from bullying at school, and his most hated subject was physical education.

This nightmare lasted until he was 15 years old. His breaking point was watching a pirated version of Rocky IV (that’s the one where Sly is fighting Dolph Lundgren). The story of an underdog and hard work inspired Martin and since then he’s never looked back. The very next day he joined the only gym in town and started to lift weights.

Martin explored various ways to get fit, from popular bodybuilding training programs, taekwondo classes, one-year service in the elite Czech Special Forces and CrossFit, to behavior psychology.

Martin has been a full-time personal trainer since 2010 and he has not lost an ounce of passion since. Quite the opposite. He is constantly learning and educating himself how can he deliver better results to his clients. 

Martin loves natural bodybuilding (planning to return to the stage in 2020), traveling and watching movies with his wife Andrea and spoiling their cat Aloha.

CHARLOTTE KAPITZA

Personal Trainer

Charlotte, BCRPA certified personal trainer. Born and raised in Vancouver, BC, Charlotte has always lead a healthy active lifestyle.

Coming from a competitive sports background, she knows what it takes to work together as a team to achieve a goal.

Charlotte’s passions reside in total body wellness, feeling strong and powerful through proper strength training and conditioning. She wants to help her clients feel empowered by reaching goals and feeling better in their day-to-day lives. She is currently looking forward to learning more about post-rehabilitation conditioning, physical therapy, and muscle imbalance.

Charlotte has competed in different levels of softball and volleyball, has ran in endurance races such as the Sun Run, Seawheeze and more. She loves entering obstacle course races like The Spartan Race and looks forward to competing in the upcoming Sprint in Whistler 2019. Her past history training horses and competing in equine races and shows has given her the tools to handle a varied scope of clientele.

In November 2014 Charlotte competed in the IDFA Body Building Competition and placed 1st in both Bikini and Fitness categories, and then got the 1st place overall win in both those categories. It was during the competition prep that Charlotte became very aware of how nutrition and strength training can transform not just the body but also the mind. It was then she realized she wanted to help others come to this same realization of feeling their best selves.
