This month at FF (December) we’d like to feature some great people and a great business! These are hard-working, good people who train as clients at Fukumoto Fitness who also run great businesses in the community!

Business: Unruh Real Estate (with Century 21 Bachman)

People: David & Chris Unruh (realtors) and Susan Unruh (office)



What we like about Fukumoto Fitness: We like working out with others in a team environment and being part of a great like-minded community. We enjoy that the training changes each month and that there are many modifications to help us reach new goals. The positive and knowledgeable coaching staff is something we really appreciate.

About Us: We recognize that when someone is buying or selling a home there can be a lot more going on behind the scenes. There are positive times such as when young couple or newer Canadians buy their first home. There can be stressful times when families are outgrowing their house or downsizing from the family home. Finally, there are difficult times involving financial pressures, divorce or death. We provide a voice of reason that people can trust while making on the largest financial decisions of their lives. Our 25+ years of successful real estate experience combined with our skills and expertise will help you navigate an ever changing real estate market no matter what situation you find yourself in.

Special Promotion “$500 to Charity”: December 1/15-June 1/16

If you or someone you refer to us, buys or sells a house or condo, we will donate $500 to Fukumoto Fitness charity “Impact Romania” via the Burpees For Romania challenge (which is an annual drive to send Romanian orphans to an enjoyable summer camp experience). This could also be a charity of your choice. If you have a family member, friend or colleague with real estate needs, refer them to us and help make a difference! Visit our website at and contact us for more details.

The Unruh’s train both smart and hard at Fukumoto Fitness! They’ve all worked in our Personal Training program as well as our Smart Group Training program for a few years. All 3 of them have taken our level 1 or 2 kettlebell course, have great attendance, and bring a great energy and work ethic to the room. They’ve done a few thousand “burpees for Romania” and hosted our 2015 FF Winter Potluck. Susan joined us for Dirty Donkey this year (photo below).  We’re happy to feature them today!




This was one of the most fun events we’ve ever had!


101 Participants (our most ever), not including 9 staff volunteers helped make this one amazing morning!


Collectively, we raised  $2,246 for Anxiety Disorders Association of Manitoba (ADAM) which will go to the development of programs that are given for free to those in the community who need group support/resources but also 1-on-1 advising on dealing with anxiety.


Thank you Janelle for speaking to us on the subject and Sangeetha and Van for representing A.D.A.M as well.

FF is super excited to welcome Megan Kamei, long-time client who has made steady changes in her own life over the last few years, to our team as our Jump Start Co-ordinator.  Here are a few words from her!

My Journey with Fukumoto Fitness began four years ago when I signed up through a Groupon offer. I still remember how intimidated I was when Johnny phoned me to get me signed up for orientation. What was this place and how was someone like me going to fit in with a bunch a fit, healthy, weight lifting enthusiasts? I was scared of what I was getting myself into but was desperate for a change. I had no idea then how important this place and this group of people would become to me.


Fitness and a healthy lifestyle have become a passion of mine and when I look back to the intimidated woman I was four years ago I hardly recognize her. Since being with Fukumoto Fitness I have done Dirty Donkey, Colour Me Rad and several triathlons. I never would have dreamed this would be something that I would accomplish in my life but the confidence I gained at Fukumoto Fitness and the encouragement from my fellow fit fam has changed what I thought was possible. IMG_7652-e1436367257790-225x300

I am super excited to be joining the staff at Fukumoto Fitness as the Jump Start Coordinator. I’m the lucky one that gets to talk to those individuals who are curious about Fukumoto Fitness and want to join our program. I can’t think of a better fit for me. I have benefited so much from being a part of this family and now I get to encourage and welcome others to join us and experience those same positive changes. I have a soft spot in my heart for those who are struggling and need a helping hand to get them to a better place in their life as I that was me four years ago. I’m very thankful to Fukumoto Fitness for helping me make my way from someone who needed a hand up to someone who offers a helping hand.

Currently I train at MWF10am usually so say hi if you see me! I’ve been married to my husband Areimei for 7 years, and we have a  2 year old son, Aadon.
