We don't want you here... We want YOU to want to be here. No pressure, no gimmicks, join only if you want.
One of the key differences between Avalon Woods and other health clubs is that our Trainers are experienced in mature adult fitness. This means that they understand the issues that crop up as we age and how to work around them from an exercise perspective. The fact that they've chosen this path on their own initiative is your assurance that these remarkable individuals are truly passionate about working with the forty plus group in helping them achieve their health and fitness goals.
At Avalon Woods you'll find:
Professional and friendly staff that care Kitchen and lounge area to relax after your workout Fitness trainers to guide and answer any questions you may have Specialized equipment and facilities Personal training, group training, and circuit training Beautiful changerooms with private shower areas Nutritional Counselling to help you reach your goals Physiotherapy Registered Massage Therapy
As part of your 2 week trial, you'll meet with one of our Fitness Trainers who will assess your fitness level. The Trainer will then take you through Avalon Woods' unique, state-of-the-art equipment designed for everyone from the athletic to those with less mobility, including those in wheelchairs. You will have unlimited access to the club and classes during the 2 week trial period.
For more than 20 years, Sensei Martin Van Zanten has been dedicated to personal improvement through fitness training. His years of experience as a Martial Arts instructor and fitness consultant has given him the opportunity to share his knowledge and expertise with many people who also share the same enthusiasm and dedication in improving their own lives.
Personal training benefits people because many lack the motivation to stay with a consistent exercise program. A good trainer will introduce you to a very simple, effective routine and help you stay on track, whether it be to lose weight and get into shape or improve your strength and endurance. If you have any chronic health conditions, injuries or training goals (running a marathon, for example) a trainer will work with you and your health care provider to plan a safe, efficient program that considers these needs and enables you to reach your health goals.
Our approach to wellness is about quality, not quantity. A patient is never rushed out the door in order to push more patients through. Our focus is, first and foremost, on the patient putting their rehabilitation requirements ahead of everything else. More than sufficient time is spent at every visit to ensure the patient's needs are met, because with rehabilitation, you want to get it right the first time.
