Founded 29 years ago with a single, small club, World Health expanded its healthy presence across Calgary and Edmonton with today's 18 locations province-wide. Ultramodern equipment and friendly staffers fill each hub, supplementing a variety of fitness classes and personal-training sessions. In Revs and Revs Plus classes, bike-mounted students pedal through aerobic drills before slow-downs allow for safe speed-bump crossing and heart-rate recovery. Fight-inspired Kick classes coalesce self-defence moves from karate, boxing, and kickboxing; Breathe’s gentle combination of yoga, Pilates, and tai chi beckons internal peace with flexibility and balance exercises. For a solo workout session, personable trainers customize sessions that chase each individual’s fitness goals. With the help of a personal trainer, exercisers often note a greater sense of motivation and accountability, improved fitness and nutritional knowledge, and biceps that literally take the shape of pistols.
