Train like the pros: Fortius Sport & Health unveils new fitness centre memberships

Lace up your runners and jumpstart this fall with Fortius Sport and Health’s new Training Centre memberships.

As an integrated athletic development centre, Fortius is focused on optimizing athlete* performance for life. But to them, an “athlete” is anyone with a body who is motivated.

“Many people think only the elite are welcome here, which is a misconception we are trying to dispel” shared Craig Thompson, Fortius CEO. “On any given day the Training Centre is a mix of professional athletes, recreational athletes and your average gym-goers, all working toward their individual health and fitness goals.”

The Fortius Training Centre is a two-story fitness centre featuring state-of-the-art equipment, functional movement space, and a staff of highly-qualified strength & conditioning coaches. While it may seem intimidating at first, they are dedicated to ensuring gym-goers of all levels are well-oriented. In-fact, their new membership plans include a one-hour private coaching session so every member is set up to achieve success.

Their membership packages include:

·       The pre-existing introductory membership, which is priced at $299 and includes three private coaching sessions and a free month of unlimited access to the Training Centre.

·       The new introductory membership is $158 and includes one private coaching session and one-month unlimited access to the Training Centre.

After completing your first month, members have the option of moving to a no-contract (yes you heard that right!) month-to-month membership at only $59 per month. The coaches also offers a variety of group strength & conditioning programs including bootcamps, Pilates mat classes and youth training.

Situated in the Burnaby Lake Sports Complex, Thompson said it is safe to say that there is no facility like Fortius Sport and Health in BC. Aside from having the only underwater treadmill in Western Canada, it is also home to a:

·       FIFA-standard turf pitch;

·       NBA/FIBA/collegiate lined gymnasium;

·       human performance lab;

·       sport science & medicine institute;

·       50-room lodge and a chef-inspired bistro.
