FIND YOUR WORKOUT
Every day we have so many different types of workouts shoved down our throats all claiming to be the best. There is yoga, Peloton, resistance training, cardio, Pilates, CrossFit, HIIT training, Olympic lifting, rowing, spin class, personal training or Barre to name a few!
So the question is which workout is actually the best?
The answer is actually quite simple- it’s whatever workout you find the most enjoyable.
It’s no secret that finding the motivation to maintain a workout routine is hard. Even when we have the best intentions, it can be difficult to stay consistent with our fitness goals, but there are a few key things that you can do to make it easier to stick with your workout routine.
First, set realistic goals for yourself and give yourself credit for the progress you make. It’s important to celebrate your small victories so that you don’t get discouraged, and give up altogether. Even if the results are coming at a snail’s pace, you are still moving forward!
Second, find an activity or workout you love and make it part of your routine. If you hate running, don’t force yourself to do it every day just because you think it’s good for you. Find an activity that you can look forward to, and that won’t feel like a chore. It takes around 66 days to create a new habit, and those days will go by a lot faster if you are doing something you enjoy.
When you find a workout you love, and stay consistent with it is when you will start to see the results you are looking for. It is important to be consistent with your workout routine in order to achieve the desired results. If you ask people who have worked out for years, all will tell you that it is a part of the day they look forward to the most. Exercising should be something you do for you and only you. It is there for mental clarity, for increased energy your levels, to support with better sleep, and of course it has all of the physical benefits.
I truly believe that there is a fitness program out there for everyone and maybe you haven’t discovered yours yet. There are endless possibilities when it comes to working out, so don’t give up if you haven’t found your perfect fit yet. Try different things and explore until you find something that you really enjoy. It’s worth it to put in the effort to find a workout routine that works for you, because once you do, you’ll be on your way to a healthier and happier life.

We certainly do! You can either purchase programs or book personal training sessions and be given your workout at the end of the session.
We have free parking, showers, sweat/shower towels, wifi and toiletries.
If you need to reschedule a session, no worries at all! Just give us a 24 hour heads up and you will not be charged for your workout.
Ideally, you should have some form of fuel in your system before you workout. Eating an easily digested carbohydrate an hour or so before you come to the studio ensures that you’ll have enough energy in the tank to get through your workout. Fruit is always a great option if you are concerned about getting an upset stomach. But once again everyone is different so experiment with what works best for you.
Most likely you will start to feel better before you really see the results. We always remind clients to celebrate everything along their fitness journey- whether it is lifting a heavier weight, recruiting the proper muscle groups or dropping/gaining inches. The more consistent you stay to your workout and nutrition plan the quicker you will see physical results.
There is no magic pill or diet. At the end of the day it is a very simple equation and that is calories in vs. calories out. If you would like to lose weight you need to eat fewer calories than you are burning. If you are looking to put on weight you want to eat more calories than you are burning.

That is a loaded question but weight loss comes down to a simple equation – calories in vs. calories out. If you eat less calories than you burn you should lose weight. Unfortunately sometimes the scale can be stubborn but your body composition will change. That is why we always recommend that you take measurements to also track your progress.
We are a private personal training studio located centrally in Edmonton. All of our clients in the gym can only work out when they are with their trainer so you will never have to deal with a busy, public gym.
