Austan and her husband Kyle Tait grew up in Mission BC and moved to Vancouver where they spent nearly 20 years chasing their dreams. Austan fell in love with fitness and her passion led to continuing her education in the fields of kinesiology and physiotherapy. Austan created a successful coaching career helping hundreds of people reach their goals over 20 years. Eventually, Austan worked her way to an executive role in a major fitness company while her partner Kyle transitioned into a full time career as a firefighter.
Family tragedy led to the decision that it was time for the Tait’s to leave busy downtown life and stressful corporate job behind and move the family back home to Mission.
Back in Mission after 20 years, Austan was struggling with PPA & PPD. Austan turned to her knowledge of fitness and nutrition to begin the journey to heal herself physically and mentally. With encouragement from friends and fellow moms wanting her help, Austan launched femme FITRx in 2018 out of her home studio. FITRx was created to help women learn how to nourish and flourish integrating nutrition, fitness and mindfulness into a holistic approach to health and wellness. The success of Femme FITRx laid the foundation for the opening Studio FITRx Downtown, January 2019.
Studio FITRx is a full service, inclusive co-ed fitness studio for all. Austan continues to lead the FITRx program, her husband Kyle leads the RUMBLE boxing classes and their incredible team of instructors work together to offer a wide variety of classes to serve the community.
