A serious accident took TNT Fitness?s founder Tag Dundas?s physical and mental health, right down to his ability to walk. During his journey to recovery, he transformed his life. It took hours of work and training, but Tag regained all his functionality, and the experience had him sticking with the gym until well after his time in physical therapy had come to an end. His new fitness far surpassed what it had been before the accident, and he decided to become a personal trainer to help others achieve those goals they always thought were impossible.
Today, Tag and his team of trainers help clients strengthen and condition their bodies in group fitness classes and personal training. Michelle and Sherri, who conducts cardio and core exercises, and Colleen, who conducts beginner classes, help equip athletes to excel with tailored training that focuses on building the kinds of speed, strength, and agility needed for each sport. Tag himself has logged nearly 1,000 hours using TRX resistance bands in personal-training sessions and boot camps. He affectionately calls the camps T-ReX boot camps, after the dinosaur renowned for its strength, ferocity, and ability to perform a perfect unassisted sit-up.
At each of Oxygen Yoga & Fitness? locations, trained fitness instructors guide students through a seven-day schedule packed with yoga, boot camp, meditation, and TRX suspension training classes. The modern studios come equipped with infrared heated yoga rooms where students strengthen muscles during yoga poses as the specialized light aims to improve their skin tone and erase their cellulite. During TRX suspension training sessions, exercisers are suspended in the air by belts attached to the ceiling and use their own body weight to fight gravity. The classes are designed for all fitness levels and aim to build long, lean muscles and give guests a place to practice their levitation skills. The studio also schedules kids' yoga sessions designed to increase children?s confidence and provide full-body workouts.
The Club Health and Wellness couples group workouts with spa services to build both healthy bodies and a communal environment for women. Owner Daphne Guenther maintains a clean, sunny studio with intense circuit-training regimens. Participants may take Zumba, circuit bootcamp, Tabata, hula core, or core blast classes. After their workouts, members can retire to an infrared sauna to send toxins fleeing from pores, or enjoy other services such as massage therapy and soothing, detoxifying ionic footbaths for tired feet. All staff members?from instructors to childcare-centre personnel?are women, providing a comfortable haven for ladies to break a sweat.
Over the past 30+ years, the courts at Great West Fitness and Tennis Club have seen countless matches, serves, volleys, and upsets. The center focuses on all aspects of tennis during classes for all ages and skill levels, including junior tennis camps held during the summer months for kids as young as 3. Beyond balls and rackets, group fitness classes such as Zumba, yoga, and intense cardio and strength-based boot camps get members moving.
Apollo Athletic Club spans nearly 45,000 square feet of body-moulding fitness facilities enhanced by a stereophonic sound system, an abundance of natural light, and a layout designed to facilitate availability of equipment. The one-month membership requires no contract or crop-sharing arrangement, bestowing upon members a pass card that grants unlimited access to all of Apollo's fitness areas. Facilities include the weight room, outfitted with Hammer Strength and Cybex equipment, a 25-foot lap pool and three hot tubs, squash and racquetball courts, two steam rooms, a basketball court, and designated seniors- and ladies-only areas. Approximately 40 classes per week harness the power of group motivation and wind energy of simultaneous jump roping with strength training, Zumba, and six senior classes, such as Osteo-Fit, designed for those living with osteoporosis.
VRC Fitness hastens heart rates in a squeaky-clean and eco-friendly facility of more than 25,000 square feet. Members get access to four cardio areas, a pool and hot tub, seven courts for racquet sports, and a motivational butler. Pump iron in a weight room organized by targeted body zones, or work a round of reps in the circuit weight room. A one-on-one orientation session with a certified personal trainer, who will create a customized workout program suited to personal health ambitions, accessorizes all new memberships. A bountiful schedule of group fitness classes fosters collective vigour through cycling, boot camps, dance classes, and more, and a ladies-only area demolishes guts of diligent divas. Registered goal-smashers can take advantage of family and local benefits or sign up for tanning, towel service, registered yoga classes, and additional personal training sessions for additional costs, though entries in stationary-bike races are always free.
