Mahya Dolati’s love for athletics goes deep and far back in time too. ‘I was born in an athletic family. My father and sister used to be professional soccer players and my mother is a professional fitness trainer for over 25 years. So, I found my interest in sports from the beginning,’ Mahya says.

Getting started

After getting a taste of physical education in high school, she decided to pursue a career as a physiotherapist. Getting a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology was intense but a lot of fun too, Mahya says. ‘I enjoy learning more about human body kinematics and function,’ she adds. ‘I love being able to translate it all into practical knowledge that helps MaxFit patients overcome their physical injuries and pain.’

You know you love your chosen profession when hobbies revolve around deepening the knowledge that you get to apply every day towards positive changes. ‘I love reading about anatomy, physiology, and therapeutic exercise, as knowledge improvement is one of the fundamental goals in my life.’

Life is movement

When not lost in human physiology books, you will find Mahya working out. ‘It keeps me alive’, she says, and at MaxFit we know that to be true. Movement is life after all!

Mahya loves spending time with her loved ones, and she has recently a new passion to her physical pursuits: rock climbing. Luckily, this is a good place to be given many rock-climbing opportunities in and around Vancouver, which she has been calling home since 2017. ‘I got admitted to Trinity Western University and moved to Vancouver in 2017. I fell in love with it after a while, so I decided to stay here and build my future,’ she explains.

Next stop: MaxFit

As for the decision to join the MaxFit family, it’s quite simple. ‘MaxFit is a place that I can grow in and learn more about new rehabilitation approaches. I knew that I made the right decision after meeting the team.’ Mahya plans to continue to work on her skills and abilities to help her patients even more. ‘Nothing could make me happier than the happy smile of a patient after overcoming the pain,’ she says.

A dedicated learner, Mahya hopes to further her education in Physical Therapy and maybe one day even open her own physical rehabilitation clinic.

Mahya’s favourite quote is, “Focus on what you can do, Not what you can’t”, which means one thing: her dreams have a great place to grow from.

Welcome to the team, Mahya!

What our clients are saying
  • "‘I've been a patient of Dr. Kelsick for the past 10 years, and Dr. Rite for the past 4, and the two are truly amazing at what they do! Although their titles are Chiropractors, they both have such a wide base of knowledge and understanding of the body, that I often feel as if our sessions are a combination of chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage therapy, and occasionally even nutrition. As such, when I see them, I know I am being taken care off. As an athlete, and simply an injury prone individual, they have both truly made a difference in how my body functions. I definitely recommend =).’ "
    Sabrina Nettey
  • "‘Dr. Kelsick and his team are truly amazing. They’ve been putting me back together and keeping me moving for more than 15 years and now take care of my whole extended family, from my 86-year-old mom to my teenage daughters. Dr. Kelsick goes the extra mile to understand exactly what is going on with your body in order to provide the very best solutions. No problem is too complex or challenging. Think Dr. House with a far better bedside manner!’ "

  • "‘As an athlete my goal is to have a fit and healthy body, and Maxfit Movement Institute helps me maintain this goal. The team of Doctors are truly gifted, and their positive outlook on life is amazing. Thank you for making a difference in my life.’"
    L Murphy
  • "‘The difference with the staff at MaxFit, especially Randy and Wilbour: they take the time to assess and determine the source of your aches or pains. Not only do they treat whatever it is, they explain how to avoid it happening again. I have tried many physio-therapists but none of them come close to MaxFit. Highly recommended. ‘"
