Exercise saves lives

LIVE WELL isn’t your typical gym— and the results show it. You won't find another health care company like them.

LIVE WELL isn’t your typical gym— and the results show it. You won't find another health care company like them. Using exercise, lifestyle and healthy habit formation as their tools, their highly-trained exercise physiologists work with you to ensure you are making lasting changes to your health and lifestyle.

Their approach has delivered proven results based upon their unique health coaching programs.

“My goal was to get my health back. I wanted to feel like myself again, and maybe one day, I could get back on a horse,” says Anna, member at Live Well, “and I never thought that would happen.”

“Four months later, not only did I have the strength and the confidence to get back in the saddle, but I got the biggest compliment from my partner who said he got his old Anna back!”

Clare lost over 20 pounds, Brigitte has normalized her blood pressure and Sue has benefited from pre-rehab and post-rehab for her knee surgery, and the list of success stories continues.

With their one-year anniversary just around the corner, LIVE WELL Victoria has been changing the lives of local residents and earning a strong reputation around the city. Their gym is no ordinary gym. Actually, they describe themselves as the ‘anti-gym’ — a place where the way you feel is more important than the way you look.

“I think it’s our approach to each individual member that makes us different,” says chiropractor and owner, Nicholas Grant.

“Each member that comes to us, whether on their own or via physician referral, goes through a medical history/program consultation and a baseline physical assessment. From this, we create a personalized, medically-prescribed exercise program.”

LIVE WELL is a medical fitness clinic that’s built on the belief that exercise is medicine. They specialize in safe, supervised exercise and healthy lifestyle coaching for people who have chronic health conditions, or who want to prevent them. People from all walks in life use LIVE WELL’s programs for many reasons — to lose weight, to lower blood pressure, increase energy, combat stress, or to be able to play tennis until the age of 80.... Some members have never worked out in a gym before; some have felt intimidated going to a ‘typical gym’.

“We know that in order to achieve the quality of life and happiness that we want, we require our health,” says Grant.

“Health equals function — in how we eat, how we think, how we sleep and in how we move.”

“Our foundation focuses on helping our members move properly, creating healthy habits that improve their overall quality of life.”

“We monitor each member’s blood pressure, heart rate and other vital signs to ensure they are exercising safely and not putting themselves at risk. We also keep doctors updated on their patients’ progress throughout the program — this is a medical relationship you won’t find anywhere else.”

After speaking with Dr. Grant, we learned that by the time a member starts their first session goals have been set and the client knows exactly what kind of support they will receive from qualified professionals.

“We all know we should be exercising and eating well, but change is difficult. In order to be successful in making lasting changes, we must connect our behaviours with something meaningful to us,” says Jennifer Cooper, Certified Exercise Physiologist at LIVE WELL.

 “At the clinic we guide our members to ‘dig deep’ for what is meaningful to them. We know that connecting a person’s values and relationships to their health journey is crucial to their success.”

LIVE WELL Exercise clinic is celebrating their one-year anniversary with an Open House on Saturday, Oct. 5th, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Everyone is invited to come out and celebrate at their Pandora St. location. They will have guest speakers, clinic tours and staff introductions available. Click HERE for tickets.
