About

A couple of weeks ago the Recreation Program Coordinator asked me to write a Bio about myself to put on their board. I had been a fitness instructor there for the past decade, and I was wondering when they were going ask me to do that. I thought they wanted neither truck nor trade with 60 year old fitness instructors.

Here’s what I sent:

Bio – Mike Broderick

Mike Broderick is a BCRPA registered fitness instructor with over 20 years experience. He has a degree in Anthropology and Sociology from UBC and has worked as a field archaeologist in BC for 13 years. He also worked as a youth worker for over a decade, and learned to be a fitness instructor as a means of connecting with the young mothers on his caseload. He is also a freelance humourist.  His writings include   a diatribe on the fitness industry entitled Awakening the Hunk Within,” and he is a fitness columnist for Alive Magazine. When he is not teaching  fitness, digging holes, or writing, he is finding jobs for people with physical disabilities for the Neil Squire Society in Burnaby where he is the Employment Specialist. He is the owner/operator of a resume consulting business called “The Spin Doctor Resume Service,” where he caters to the career needs of the up-trodden. His motto is, “If you can’t be fit, you can at least be funny.”
