About Your Host
Osprey Lake Retreat was created with the baby boomer in mind. Bruce Merit, who is the owner/operator, has been in lifestyle consulting business for over 30 years and travelled to 40 countries. He brings all his worldly knowledge together here at his lakeside retreat.
A snapshot of his bio includes Bruce personally trained over 500 individuals including some of Hollywood’s A-list celebrities (Jody Foster, Nicholas Cage, Sylvester Stallone and others).
Bruce was one of only 30 Polar Master Trainers in the world and created Polar's Cardio Coaching program which is now used in hundreds of clubs all over North America. He created his own exercise Body Bar which is in over 400 health clubs in Japan and all over Asia. He was a massage therapist on the QE2 cruise ship, a CSA ski instructor up Grouse Mountain, sailing instructor on Deer Lake on Burnaby teaching the Canadian Yachting program and a first class firefighter for Burnaby Fire Department.
He crewed on a 75 foot sail boat during the America’s Cup in Perth Australia. Now he does Bush Boot Camps around local lakes, hikes, bikes and spends about 20 hours a week fly fishing.
Spend a few days at Osprey Lake Retreat and Bruce will help you relax, reconnect, have FUN and make you forget your big city stress!
