They’ll keep your muscles guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so you’ll never fall into a boring, ineffective routine like regular teeth brushing.

When Elevation Fitness was designed, it was based on intensive research into what other fitness centers were doing right and what they were doing wrong. The result was an 18,000-square-foot facility that's doing plenty of things right.
This place is both a training ground for clients looking to get into shape and for athletes trying to bump their performance up to the next level. Gym-goers can tackle obstacle courses on a turf field, work out on the vast array of functional machines, or take boot-camp, yoga, and circuit-training classes. They can seek out certified personal trainers to help them burn fat and build muscle efficiently. And, at the sports performance academy, they can sign up for sport-specific training classes to gain strength and power.
Believing that the atmosphere is what brings people back time and again, Elevation Fitness strives to provide a convenient space where people feel welcome and supported while working out. Parents can take advantage of the onsite child care. If you're injured or need an adjustment, you can head over to the facility's chiropractor. And everyone can enjoy some post-workout refreshments at the juice and snack bar.
Indoors or outdoors, the trainers of Realdeal Bootcamp find the best exercises to get hearts hammering against rib cages and build long and lean muscle. They spice up this traditional combo of cardio and strength circuits with group fitness games every class. Teams square off against each other in matches of tug of war, capture the flag, and ball tag, in which the ball is always it and the object is to never catch it.
As a kid, Michelle Ricketts could never sit still. She channelled her boundless energy into sports and scampering about outdoors, activities that trained her for a career in the fitness-and-recreation industry. After years travelling the world, Michelle circled back around to her home city of Vancouver, where she founded and continues to infuse her limitless energy into Storm Fitness Inc.
Within a variety of local parks and studios, Michelle and her team of fellow fitness aficionados conduct high-intensity full-body workouts. To train minds and restructure bad habits, they outfit programs with nutrition advice, meal plans, and grocery tips on which sugary foods to avoid and how to mould marshmallows into the shape of broccoli to reduce its calories. Through teaching proper fitness and nutrition models, the team spearheads a sustained mission to decrease obesity. Beyond that, 10 per cent of its profits go to Team Diabetes, an organization that promotes diabetes education, research, and services.
