Burntown Comes to Vancouver, Washington to Disrupt the Fitness Industry

Share Article

Veteran fitness trainer, Kisar Dhillon, joins forces with creative director, Ian Coyle, and accomplished financial and HR professional, Liz Dhillon, to create a new startup fitness concept called Burntown Fitness.

High Intensity, High Energy, Low-Impact Group training studio



The vision for Burntown Fitness was created by Kisar Dhillon and his desire to inspire everyone to move with a purpose, and to make every move count. In over 20 years as a personal trainer, he discovered that most clients rarely work out at their full potential. Without proper guidance, resources, and fitness education, clients are more likely to cheat in their workouts or even hurt themselves while doing so. Kisar developed Burntown specifically to help people avoid injury and maximize their workouts.

Burntown’s 45-minute, high intensity, high energy, and low impact group fitness class is designed to maximize clients’ effort and help them get out of their fitness comfort zone. With a signature four-round methodology, clients can achieve their fitness goals in less time.

Burntown was built for busy individuals seeking a challenging, fun, and efficient workout. With shorter yet more efficient classes, clients can fit them in their schedules, and leave feeling more accomplished with their day. Instructed by experienced, professional fitness coaches, Burntown is dedicated to helping everyone exercise their entire body in an exciting and efficient way.
