At our gym in Vernon, BC
At Forge Valley Fitness you won't find cardio or weight machines, you will be the machine!
What you will find are pull-up bars, kettlebells, barbells and open space for squatting, running, jumping, climbing, lifting and throwing – we want you to move your body the way it was designed to move.
This means that your workout will comprise of movements you perform on a daily basis or during sports -movements we call “functional”.
You would never bicep curl your child to pick them up, so why would you do it in the gym?
We focus on improving functional movements that are necessary and common in your daily activities. When you pick your groceries off the ground you're doing a deadlift. When you put your bike on the car rack is a form of a press, when you go to the toilet that's a squat.
This also means that you will never get bored! With our constantly varied programming, you will rarely do the same workout. You'll never have to program your own workouts or spend hours in the gym. Instead, each day a new workout is posted for you that is scalable to suit your fitness level. Every workout is coached, we'll help you perform the day’s workout using progressions suitable for you.
Our fitness programming aims to improve your capacity in ten fitness domains: cardio-respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. Your result will be comprehensive physical fitness and restored vitality.
A combination of group classes and personal training to improve your strength, endurance and flexibility as well as promote ongoing skill development, accountability and lifestyle coaching.
