Having led hundreds of clients down a custom-paved road to physical health, certified fitness trainers Christopher and Stephanie Williams founded Destiny Fitness as a home base for both in-studio and mobile personal-training services. The team helps locals achieve wholesome lifestyle shifts, manning group fitness classes at their Mississauga studio when they aren't bringing personal training regimens, equipment, and inflatable Olympic-size pools to area homes. Their programs, which can include nutritional guidance as well as frequent progress assessments, are part of a step-by-step system intended to become a guide to lifelong fitness success. More specialized therapies are available under the pair's Destiny Wellness umbrella, a mobile facet of the company that travels to those with rehabilitative needs.
At Pro Dojos, certified martial-arts experts lead students of all ages and skill levels through a variety of pugilistic disciplines. Each location is independently owned, so the martial-arts styles may vary, but many offer karate, tae kwon do, kick-boxing, aikido, and jujitsu classes. The instructors elucidate the noble combat arts to kiddos as young as 4 years old, helping them build strength and motor skills while instilling the values of self-confidence. Teen classes focus on honing discipline and treating yourself and others with respect, and adult classes reinforce cardiovascular conditioning, strength, balance, and coordination. The instructors also lead classes for the whole family, allowing them to bond as a unit, which could possibly lead to starring in a hit sitcom about a crime-fighting family who takes down comical villains in their idyllic suburban neighborhood.

One exerciser lunges across the parking lot, toting a kettlebell in each hand. Inside, another lifts a huge weight over her head, while two more dangle from the gymnast's rings suspended from the ceiling. Muscles bulge, people grunt and sweat. It's just another day in a CrossFit box.
The particular gyms in question happen to be located in Mississauga and Bolton, but each features the same amenities: weight-lifting gear, gymnastics equipment, and a whole lot of open space for functional movement training. As their philosophy dictates, the trainers at each location provide a new workout every day, preventing their customers from becoming bored and their kettlebells from becoming too attached to any one person and following them home.
