Why Train at PhysXtreme?

We’ve heard plenty of complaints from people such as:

  • I hate wasting my money on gym memberships that I hardly use.
  • I’ve heard that, to get good results, you need a personal trainer two to three times per week, but it’s so expensive.
  • I’m often bored just going to the gym to do cardio or weights.
  • I never know what kind of program to follow.
  • I’m not feeling as motivated to train anymore.
  • There’s so much conflicting information about how to train and eat, I don’t know what to believe.
  • I get pain in my back, knees, and/or other places when I train.
  • I can’t seem to lose body fat no matter what I do.
  • I’ve hit a plateau and am not seeing results anymore.

Fortunately, at the PhysXtreme gym in Ottawa and Gatineau, the unique combination of our programs, coaches, facility, and our incredible community, allow our members to get amazing results despite having some of all of these concerns before they’ve started with us.

The truth is, you can’t buy a membership at PhysXtreme and not use it because we won’t let you slack, and if we can’t motivate you to stay on track with the program we will terminate your membership and stop taking your money. Training here is a lot less expensive than hiring a personal trainer at some other gym. It costs as little as $10 per session and you’ll get even better results in our groups than with a one-on-one trainer, not to mention you’ll never get bored since our workouts are challenging and fun, and they are always changing.

If your concern is that you don’t know what programs are best for you, you can rest assured that we are here to help. Our programs are made to help you get stronger, leaner, faster, have better conditioning, and are universally scalable to suit any level of fitness. What’s more is that all our coaches are educated, experienced, and ready to help you every step of the way. We also have a registered physiotherapist – one of the top physiotherapists for many of Canada’s national sports teams, nonetheless – on staff that can assess and treat all sorts of injuries and pain.

Like we said, you don’t have to worry about getting bored, unmotivated or hitting a plateau. Our experienced coaches can help you move past all of that with subtle changes to your programming or nutrition. Getting the results you want is not complicated, but it does take hard work!
