Now operating out of two locations, Pinacle Health & Fitness helps keep fitness seekers on track with group fitness classes such as spin, yoga, and fitness kickboxing, as well as an array of coaching clinics. One-on-one sessions range from personal fitness coaching to holistic lifestyle coaching including guidelines on how to eat well and how to properly access a pomegranate's sweet, sweet innards. Through online accountability coaching, trainers educate clients with regular email blasts and virtual resources including the centre's very own online magazine. The centre's registered massage therapists also loosen up limbs with relaxation and prenatal massages performed before major events such as marathons or marathon childbirths.
The Classical Martial Arts Centre specializes both in physical training and personal development. Sensei Gregg Skoryk leads karate, tai chi, kobudo, and children's martial-arts classes that help students learn to defend themselves while crafting a solid foundation for self-discipline and confidence. The three main tenets of the martial-arts center are: respect, compassion, and gratitude. He encourages all students to apply these principles to everyone in their lives from their parents and friends to their country and teachers.
Depth Training’s staff believes that “the body can do anything; it’s the mind you have to convince,” and strives to motivate patrons of all ages to win the mental battle. Drawing from varied backgrounds in athletics, kinesiology, and physiotherapy, the certified trainers—one of whom coached the national women’s hockey team in strength and conditioning—inspire guests to build strength while preventing injury throughout the facility's three rooms. In the weight-training room, TRX suspension bands and Olympic weights await attention, and the sunny, wood-floored personal-training studio hosts group fitness classes and boot camps. The indoor turf field fosters athletic endeavours, challenging exercisers to push and pull weight sleds to train for the football season or joining a pack of huskies for next year's Iditarod. Committed to training young athletes, the trainers also host summer camps and programs to help kids as young as 7 develop their muscles, endurance, and agility.
At its 10 locations throughout Canada, The Athletic Club provides access to exercise machines and fitness classes, but that’s only part of the story. Club staffers also follow an overarching mission to making discovering a healthy lifestyle fun rather than onerous. While exploring the multilevel fitness arenas, members and guests may catch encouraging shouts from personal trainers or a medley of splashing and laughter from children taking swimming lessons from professional instructors. They can also investigate the benefits of yoga or spinning during group classes or one-on-one instruction. Cardio machines boost heart rates and bolster endurance, while flat-panel televisions attached to each machine keep members entertained. In addition to building new bodily abilities, members also keep their minds sharp with services such as nutrition counselling or wellness classes held on the astral plane.
For nearly a decade, Absolute Health & Fitness's crew of seasoned and certified trainers have hurtled fitness-seekers toward health and weight-loss goals through coaching and nutritional counselling. Personal trainers customize curriculums to best enhance clients' resistance, flexibility, and core strength during individual sessions, and nutritionists review eating habits to suggest healthier approaches. Coaches lead groups through high-intensity crunches, lunges, and cardio during boot-camp classes, and prepare women for a variety of figure and fitness competitions through specialized training and nutrition sessions. Professional makeup, hair, and skin treatments prepare clients for beauty pageants or upscale hot-dog-eating competitions, and the centre's resident massage therapist helps reduce stress and mollify overworked muscles.
The certified health-care professionals at Serona Centre for Integrative Medicine and Yoga take a holistic approach to healing. They pool their individual talents to help patients naturally, incorporating naturopathic medicine and holistic nutrition. They incorporate psychotherapy to help patients overcome mental obstacles and emotional pain, and massage therapy to alleviate chronic discomfort from overworked muscles. Yoga helps bring everything to balance through various postures and gentle breathing exercises that increase relaxation, clarity, and the ability to nap comfortably in an overhead storage bin.
