I’ve always gone regularly to the gym since university but about 6 years ago my job started to require travel. I gave up my gym membership and other classes, then tried for 3 years to use hotel gyms when I was traveling, and trying to drop into he community center when I was home. After changing jobs 3 years ago, I finally had the chance to get back to a regular gym routine and Dynamic Health and Fitness was fantastically within walking distance and had enough equipment so half the time there wasn’t spent waiting for someone else to finish! The staff have always been incredibly friendly, and when I managed to convince my husband to join, we got to know them better. This year, I felt I had done as much as I could by myself to lose the weight I had gained while traveling and, after my husband spent some time chatting to Brett, he convinced me to go talk to her, as we’d both noticed the amazing progress she’d made with other clients. Immediately Brett was on the case! She was friendly, honest and realistic in what we could, and should, achieve and has always been super supportive of the progress I’ve made. She said I needed to start eating more (yes!) and, to keep me from getting bored with the same routine, changes it up often, which also means I can
make better use of the facilities. She also goes above and beyond when trying to understand changing health goals, making sure she understands you and your own challenges. The gym is also amazing at supporting the local community and causes like Say No to Domestic Violence, so it makes you feel truly like a part of a neighborhood. To be honest, I feel like I’ve gained a friend in Brett, and it’s always good to have a friendly neighborhood place to drop off excess baked goods!

I had some physical challenges and needed a change, after procrastinating long enough I joined Dynamic Health and Fitness in January of 2015. I had not worked out in a fitness club for some time and I lacked the self motivation to work out on my own so I decided to purchase an introductory personal training starter package to get started with my health and fitness goals. I was introduced to James and he was able to find some exercises that would enable
me to get the most from my workouts, he trains with care and compassion yet provides just the right amount of motivation for me to push myself just a little bit more and go beyond what I think I can do. I have never done the same workout twice as he is always keeping my workouts different, interesting and challenging for me to enjoy. I am now stronger, I feel healthier and I am doing things and exercises I never dreamed I would ever be able to do! I have to say this is one of the best things I could of ever done for myself is to join Dynamic Health and Fitness and hire James as my trainer — thank you James for making me accountable towards my health and fitness goals!

Three years ago, I decided to join a gym to get myself back in shape so that I could play hockey again.  I had been to a number of other gyms in the past, but none compared with Dynamic Health and Fitness. The atmosphere was very inviting, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the equipment well-kept and modern.  For the last two years I have been working out with one of Dynamic’s personal trainers.

Over that time, Brett has helped motivate me to lose the weight and gain the strength and flexibility I needed to continue to play hockey. She suggested taking Yoga classes and do some strength training, which helped a lot. Although I am now in playing shape, I’m still working out with Brett once a week, as well taking two Yoga classes each week and going to the gym as often as I can to maintain what I have to stay healthy and strong. I will be completing my second full season of hockey this spring. Thank you to Dynamic Health and Fitness and especially my personal trainer Brett – she is great and I could not have done it without her!
