Since 1989, the Palmer family and a tight-knit team of personal trainers have helmed Fitness Gear and Training, promoting healthy, fulfilling lifestyles through expert one-on-one fitness guidance.

For 19 years, the Sportsplex gym at Total Fitness—under one name or another—has provided a venue for locals to work out and be a part of a "true community gym." The private health club elevates heart rates and feelings of camaraderie in group fitness classes such as yoga, aerobics, or karate. Private trainers teach individuals custom routines, and nutritional experts revitalize and revolutionize diet plans. Blue pads rest on the white metal frames of machines, coordinating exactly with the paint colours on the walls. Wall-mounted televisions glow, interspersed among painted, empowering words and quotes, such as, “The most important thing about goals is having one,” spoken by Geoffrey Abert when describing the game of soccer.
At Push FX Training, certified personal trainer Jaime Schmid designs intense group boot camps and personal-training sessions. Her outdoor boot camps include games, fitness challenges, and intense interval training, helping clients lose weight, tone muscles, and enhance agility. Personal training is tailored to each client's fitness goals, which can include anything from weight management to preparing for a marathon. Those programs take place outdoors, at clients' homes, or at Jaime's home studio. She also offers small-group training for up to four. As a certified postnatal fitness specialist, she's also qualified to assist new moms with their exercise routines.
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.
Certified personal trainer Katelyn Brown first immersed herself into the fitness industry in 2008. Since then, she's trained clients privately, has led groups through sweaty boot camps, and has even worked with hockey players off the ice, coaching them how to walk in public without checking pedestrians into walls. At Perseverance Fitness, she puts this experience to use helming signature BootyCamp sessions—all-women fitness classes that use body-weight movements to tone troublesome areas such as the arms, core, and backside. Katelyn, who is also a certified TRX suspension-training ambassador, also captains TRX boot camps, which allow participants to perform hundreds of exercises by leveraging gravity against body weight with a series of specialized straps and bands.
