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.

Certified trainer Carrie Light leads a team of fellow trainers who follow her emphasis on building the self-esteem and physical health of their clients. Her background in kinesiology and sports informs the design of Training 4 Life’s fitness classes, which ramp up heart rates and engage fast- and slow-twitch muscle fibres in the upper and lower body. She keeps classes small and the teacher-to-student ratio close, so that she can devote attention to each student’s technique, form, and safety.
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.
