We are a semi private fitness studio looking to create an encouraging environment for anyone who may need adaptive training. Most gyms have environments that are less than inviting for anyone who may feel a bit unsure about what they can do or how they look doing it. We want to create the opposite atmosphere.

Whether you are living with a congenital disability, movement impairment due to accident or physical trauma from battle we want to help you find ways to move and improve your general fitness!

For many people, once rehabilitation is finished or has established minimal functional movement, that outlet for exercise is gone and it becomes more difficult to find ways to keep moving. Like anyone else, you should be able to find and enjoy peak physical ability. Exercise is as much about expelling energy, setting physical and mental challenges and creating community as it is about getting fit. Everyone deserves to have a space to do all of these things.

If you are looking to train for the Paralympics, we would love to help you maximize your mobility, stability and strength for whatever sport you compete in. But make no mistake, this gym is open to everyone, no matter the aspirations.

We also welcome anyone who is blind or has vision impairment. We will help guide you through the movements and through the challenges like we would any other client.

While we are a For Profit business at the moment, we want to make these programs available to as many people as possible so we work on a sliding scale. Please contact us to get more details on how this works.

Group classes will be set up as soon as we have enough interest for them. Let us know if you are interested and we will begin to set up a schedule.

We really look forward to meeting with you!

When trying to lose weight one of the first questions we ask is – what should we be take away from our diet? But maybe we should be asking what we can add to it, or better yet: what is missing?

Sometimes, even when we are doing most of the right things, like exercising intensely and eating well we can still have trouble losing weight. Our reflex is to keep taking away calories – less carbohydrates, less fats but there is evidence that suggests that all our bodies need is to add something small rather than take away something big.

In athletics, enhancing performance (legally) is an holistic approach. Strength coaches, sport coaches, psychologists, muscle and tissue therapists and team cohesion activities all play a role in building the the best athlete. The mind and body are recognized as having to be in sync for the best results. Why is it that the body, and indeed the mental health of an individual is not nurtured in the business world to help build a more focused and productive employee? Why do we not do this for ourselves if and when we want to maximize our efforts in building a business or helping one grow? Read More

The number 1 concern that our personal training clients have when they reach out to us is persistent motivation.

We know that you don’t always get what you wish for but you do get what you work for. We will help you reach your goals, as we have with all of our clients for the last 10 years. But the more important thing we can help you with is finding that innate motivation. We work to inspire lifestyle change that equates to longevity in health. You might only train with us for a month but we strive to give you the one tool that will keep you healthy for much longer.

We require very little space for our In-home training. All we need is a big enough space that you can lay down and stretch your limbs out without touching anything. Any equipment required we can provide for each session. If you have equipment we can incorporate it into our programs or your homework plans.

We can help you with any number of short or long term goals

  • Losing the last 5-10 lbs
  • Significant weight loss – 20 lbs to extreme obesity
  • Increasing cardiovascular strength
  • Sport performance (golf, hockey, sprinting, climbing, football, speed skating, etc)

SELF DEFENSE WORKSHOP (LEVEL 1) with B-Fit Founder, JOEY REID                  

Mr. Reid, a kung-fu Instructor of 21 years and martial arts practitioner of 31 years, has taken his experience in various martial arts and developed a functional system of self defense techniques and philosophy.  Using a blend of the simplest but most effective techniques, his workshops and classes are meant to instill strength, courage, humility and compassion while igniting a set of physical reflexes that are crucial for survival.

The function of this seminar is to teach the most effective means of defending against some of the more common types of attacks. This is a basics level seminar and so it is open to everyone, you do not need to have any background in martial arts nor do you need to have a high level of fitness. Women, men and children are welcome.

Some of what you will be learning in this seminar: Read More

Having “6 pack abs” is like the gold star of fitness training. Movies, fitness magazines, and clothing advertisements put pressure on us to reach for this seemingly unattainable goal. This used to be more so for men, but it blows my mind how many women are looking for the washboard look now. So many people walk into our studio wanting to do focus on “core” exercises so that they can look cut. We’ve become ab addicts. Read More

Every year we put on some promotions for the holiday season. Because there’s nothing like receiving a gift that requires you to sweat your butt off! Right?

Actually it’s become more and more popular and it is inspiring to see that more people seem focused on giving gifts of experiences, charity, or health betterment and less so on material goods. In fact, this has inspired us to do the same! We will still be offering discounted prices on our training but we are also going to give 10% of all profits made from new clients to the Montreal Children’s hospital. Read More

There is some evidence that Carrageenan, an ingredient often found in store bought almond milk, as well as other processed foods, laxatives, medications and even certain toothpastes may produce an inflammatory response in the intestines. Some researchers even report it as a possible carcinogen.

As of yet the majority of the research has been limited to animal studies. But a review of these studies raises major concerns of the potentially harm this common food additive can have. It is important to note that the effects differ significantly between species but that some of these harmful effects include intestinal inflammation, lesions, ulcerations and malignant tumors.

I’m writing this post at the request of some of my clients. The hard truth is that most women will have to live with the appearance of cellulite. Its up to us to change our views on how we see it and try to stop judging people for having something that is quite simply, inevitable. That said, having a lot of cellulite can be a sign of imbalances within our bodies and this is a post on how to deal with it. Read More
