Q- Do I need to bring anything to my sessions?
Other than a great attitude and determination to do your best… please bring with you a towel, a bottle of water, and good shoes. Depending on your goals, your trainer may also ask you to bring a nutrition log. We also recommend a hand towel to dry off any sweat.

Anyone can take our classes regardless of their fitness level. All exercises can be adapted as needed. Please let the instructor know if you have any limitations. We will push you and motivated you, but always be aware of your boundaries. Some participants may feel more comfortable booking a Personal Training session prior to starting classes to review exercise technique.
Q- What’s the deal with carbs?
Carbohydrates are not necessarily the enemy. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find a nutritionist, dietician, or fitness trainer who does not encourage the consumption of lots of vegetables!
Carbohydrates are absolutely necessary for brain and muscle function. They are energy! If, however, weight loss is your goal, we will evaluate your present diet and look for excess carbohydrate intake. We may also make recommendations to switch the type of carbohydrate you are consuming. Ie. replacing a high glycemic carb with a low glycemic carb, or make an addition of fibre.
As you are unique, so is this process. We will work through this with you.
