The Motion Room lets loose an effervescent staff of personal trainers, each of whom rejects the idea of detached, generalized fitness that dominates other gyms. Instead, they centre each of their programs around each client's specific goals, following the four values of education, motivation, guidance and support. To this end, trainers lead 4 Series boot-camp classes and personal co-training sessions that take a more holistic, caring approach than programs that inexplicably shut clients in empty rooms with a chair and a hungry lion. Keeping students on the straight and narrow, the staff holds body composition evaluations every 90 days, fields all on-site questions, and maintains an ever-growing online resource with exercise and nutrition advice. This devoted approach has earned the loyalty of Barenaked Ladies drummer Tyler Stewart, who has videotaped his fitness regimen at The Motion Room as a testament to their methods.
