Highest Chance of Success

My family called me


Growing up I always struggled with weight and identity issues that came with being bigger. By the time I got to high school, I developed severe body dysmorphia, but I never let it show.

I was literally nicknamed “fatman” by my family, a name that never quite sat right with me.

I started training with Nelson when I was just getting into my career as a new massage therapist at SNU.

He taught me about eating habits and small things that would make me feel more powerful. My head was clear, my mental was strong.

This experience has showed me that human potential is unlimited. If you want something bad enough, you’ll make it happen. Set your sights on that goal, don’t look away from that target.

Inhale, exhale, and remember why you started.

Nothing worked for me

Except this

I wanted to lose weight, and gain more energy. I was looking for a gym to be at, feel comfortable, and have a trainer that I can train with, motivate me, and challenge me.

I‘ve tried several things in the last 4 years. Different crash diets, different trainers, regular gyms – nothing worked for me. 

This gym feels like a family. Everybody here is so nice. I love the way that Akiel trains me and challenges me. 

It’s not boring, every workout is different and that’s exactly what I’ve been looking for, for a long time.

Akiel – thanks for training me and being such a tough ass.


I wasn't committed

Now I go hard

The problem for me was commitment. I’d be going to the gym by myself, going strong for a good solid 3 months, and I would just stop. 

The problem for me was motivation. If I did go by myself,  and I wasn’t happy with the workout, I would try to cut the workout a little bit short.

The thing I like about Massi is he doesn’t let you settle. He calls you out if you’re slacking on an exercise, and then pushes you harder the next time you have to do it.

He makes it fun. It’s not the same workout over and over and over. I didn’t know half these exercises even existed.

Specifically to Massi, awesome training with you. Great memories from when we first started. We’ve come a long way, we’ve done quite a lot with Massi, and Massi’s helped us quite a bit.

Thank you Massi, you’re definitely a part of our lives, so I’m looking forward to continuing my training here with the team.

I didn't have motivation

Now I love working out

The problem I faced before I started personal training was I didn’t have the motivation to really start losing weight – it really was my weight loss.

I’ve tried working out on my own, but there’s always that time you start to lack motivation, you don’t have someone pushing you or holding you accountable for your actions. Ever since I started working out with Johnny, it pushed me further in terms of my goal of being fit.

So I chose personal training because I wanted that 1-on-1 experience. I found that since I started with Johnny, you get that personal feeling you get with someone. They get to know you, you get to become more than just a trainer and a trainee. You almost become friends on a level.

SNU – these guys are amazing. You see the kind of work they do with people. I would definitely recommend this to everybody.  


Personal Training is

Friendly + Fun

Been doing personal training here with JJ for the last 8 months. He’s super knowledgeable and his personality and humour makes the training a lot of fun! The environment is also very friendly and not intimidating. The staff from front desk to trainers are all very friendly 🙂

I love it

I’ve been going to this gym for about a year now and I love it. The trainers really encourage you, and they work you hard. The gym is also staffed with massage therapists, chiropractors, and physiotherapists. 

I strongly recommend.



Everybody knows

Your name

When I walk in I feel like it’s walking in to the cheers bar, where everybody knows your name. Everyone is so welcoming and encouraging. Currently I do personal training with Jeff, and he’s awesome. Working with me to achieve my goals.

Akiel is my nutritionist and he’s always there when I have questions in regards to foods and meal planning. Overall, great place to start or continue to work out.

Highly recommend.

Best gym in Scarborough. I really like their concept of group training where you get trainer dedicated to your group which is really a limited group and I like that part the most making sure that everyone gets to use all equipments on their turn. The location of the gym is very convenient so as to commute to any side of Scarborough. I highly recommend Strength-N-U and I am an active member of the gym.
