“I started training at True North Strength and Fitness in September 2019, it was a small gym recommended to me by my sister. The coaches there were patient with my newness to strength training and worked with my Physiotherapist to put together a training program to help me build confidence after a persistent back issue and allow me to return to all the activities I enjoyed doing like hiking, Nordic skiing, running, and walking.
When COVID-19 happened both my husband and I found ourselves out of work, so I switched to the virtual membership as it afforded me the opportunity to keep working out with True North. The training program has been challenging but is easy to navigate and I am excited to feel myself continuing to get stronger.
I miss being part of the in-person community but being able to work out on my back porch in the sun (or rain, I don’t care) looking out at the trees, and a sprinkling of neighbors, is pretty amazing all things considered. I’m happy to report, my back is doing so much better, my hips feel strong, it doesn’t hurt putting my socks on anymore, and to top it all off I have some new muscles to show off now. The virtual membership has held me accountable to my workouts and kept me healthy.
My current and future self thanks you!”
