This is what it’s all about for us.


Don’t take our word for it

“Joining FFF was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I have more energy, more focus, and feel stronger and healthier than ever. The 30 minute sessions fit perfectly with my busy schedule and I always leave feeling better than when I arrived.  For me, it’s all about accountability, pushing myself harder, and getting stronger. I couldn’t do any of that without the expertise at FFF.  Highly recommend.”

–Darrin Cohen, Byward Market

“I have been a client of Free Form Fitness since 2008.  My experience in Kanata and Wellington, for the past 3 years or so, has been consistently excellent.  In my view this is based on Jean Luc, Chelsea and Ashley’s focus on the type of people that they hire and the values instilled in the culture.  Each client is treated uniquely, there is no template prescribed to all which creates a unique workout experience in the FFF gym that is positive and supportive between the clients and staff.  At Wellington, I train with Vania Hau, her degree in kinesiology combined with her personal training approach has made a huge different in my recovery from long standing injuries and significantly increased my overall strength.  I highly recommend FFF, it is an integral part of my lifestyle and long-term health and wellness plan.”

–Sue Odle, Wellington

A few weeks ago, I signed up for FFF’s 8 session introductory offer. A couple of friends who have Free Form Fitness personal trainers have had great success with both weight loss and lifestyle changes. So I wanted to find out for myself what made FFF different from other fitness training options.

I’ve never liked gyms or working out and went to FFF with a good dose of skepticism. However, I find myself looking forward to my sessions and the time just flies by. What makes these sessions different from any I’ve had before is the personal trainers’ personalized approach. I was asked at my first session about my preferred training approach. Drill sergeants or the ‘make it burn’ types are a complete turn off for me. I want to understand the physiological basis for the exercises and to be encouraged by the personal trainers. The personal trainers I’ve had took this approach. The professionalism, close attention, and knowledge of these personal trainers is impressive and I look forward to working with them in the months to come.

— Sandra Zohar, Wellington Village

“This is my 6th year at FFF and while I have continually gone up and down in weight, my body is fit and toned and my mind is focused. The best part of my day is right after a hard workout.  FFF is perfection in 30 minutes, getting me ready for any obstacle or challenge that the rest of the day has in store for me. See you in the AM!”  

— Debbie Weinstein, Kanata

“I like having the accountability. I am one of those people who if I don’t have an appointment I will find something else to do.”

— Melissa Krulick, Glebe

“It isn’t only the personal motivation, the one-on-one training, that makes Free Form Fitness different. They explain things to me. They care …  I feel awesome and I look great, I’ve never received this many compliments about the way I look.”

— Sarah Freemark, Byward Market

“They take your training one notch further than you can do yourself. These guys are good, their style suits me perfectly. If I go to a gym on my own, it is never as intense … it’s that commitment, that one-on-one commitment. You don’t want to disappoint your personal trainer or yourself.”

— Peter Kunstadt, Kanata

“The weight came off like no tomorrow. It was the weight training, and the meal plan that cut back on the carbs, that really helped.”  

— Lyndsay Tickner, Wellington Village

Free weights are the best form of resistance

“We both really enjoy exercising together. We have had sessions on our own, but doing it together and sharing the personal trainer is more beneficial. We goad each other on and become competitive. It makes it much more fun and motivates us. (Our personal trainer) is so in tune with what we need. It’s quite remarkable.”

— Jay and Graham Gibbs, Byward, retired

“It’s awesome. Everything is just easier. I am referring anybody and everybody to Free Form. They literally hold your hand to help you get through whatever issues you are having.”

— Nancy Macdonald, Kanata

“I’ve learned a lot about how the body responds to exercise and how it responds to different foods you eat. I know there are a lot of things I can do to lose weight and respond to stress. And what really truly amazed me is how the personal trainers can fatigue you by knowing how to work the right muscles just the right amount.”

— Brian Lugg, Kanata

“Strength does not come naturally, and you can’t do strength training alone at home. Most people don’t know how to do a half hour of weights on their own efficiently. It’s about quality of life. You have one body and you don’t have a second chance to take care of it.”

— Claire Lauzon, Byward

Super mom training through a pregnancy.

“Sometimes, if I was sitting for more than half an hour, my whole right leg would go numb. After a few weeks of (weight training), I was no longer experiencing pain on a regular basis. Weight training, running, and yoga really compliment each other, as they provide the strength, endurance, and flexibility to make my body healthier.”

— Crystal Chan, Byward

“Before I would hit the gym for 75 to 90 minutes at a time. Now it’s a half-hour session with the personal trainer with another 12 minutes on the rowing machine. It’s amazing the results you can achieve with the right combination of diet and supervised training.”

— Leo Valiquette, Kanata

“I’ve been impressed with this organization because they take a personal approach that appeals to the narcissistic side in all of us. It’s a great service business that combines thorough knowledge and expertise that works for people of all fitness levels.”

— Larry O’Brien, Byward

“What I like about FFF is that here I have two different personal trainers who train me completely differently. I’ve noticed big changes just from coming in twice a week for half an hour. You don’t always have to pound yourself to see good results.”

— Collette Bellemare, Byward

“FFF’s friendly atmosphere and training model with two different personal trainers was what I needed to get going. This has already put me in better shape than I ever was before exercising on my own. I am learning a lot.”

— Erin Filliter, Byward

Senior exercise

Any age is the right age to start

 

 

 

“Nobody gets the same thing – the weights are different, the approach is different (for each client). I don’t see anyone getting the same cookie-cutter approach. This isn’t just about exercise. It’s about my overall personal health, my mental and emotional states, too.”

— Monique Tremblay, Wellington Village

“The personal trainers were so open and honest about the importance of being accountable. Whenever I did have a small moment of weakness I would tell them and they were so good about getting me back in a positive mind frame and not dwelling on it. Once you’ve had an experience like that with someone and you see how invested they are in you, you really don’t want to let them down.”

— Chad MacDonald, Wellington Village

“Just having the consistency in my life of three times a week, it’s always there, that’s the catalyst to push me in the other facets of my life I need to do better on. For me, it’s so important to have those scheduled sessions.”

— Lesley Lang, Byward

“There is no shortcut. You have to sweat, you have to lift weights and do cardio. But you have to have to work up to it. Instead of saying, ‘I can’t see myself doing that,’ you have to change your mindset and say, ‘I want to work toward doing that.’”

— Danielle Beauregard, Kanata

gym positive energy

Love seeing these faces early in the morning

“(My personal trainers) understand the issues with my knee and are constantly correcting my form. I can enjoy the full benefit of a complete exercise routine that works around my knee, but isn’t limited by it.”

— Catherine Amirault, Kanata

“Before FFF, going to the gym was a chore and I really didn’t know what I was doing. Now, with FFF’s help, I finally feel like I am on the right track and feel stronger and more energetic than ever. I love working with their staff – it is as fun as working out with friends except they really know what they’re talking about!”

–Janelle Zhao, Byward

“Exercise has re-energized my life at all levels…Thanks Free Form Fitness!

–Nadia Ramseier, Byward Market

“I really enjoy the atmosphere of a smaller more intimate venue.  Love the results, love the staff!”

–James Clink, Byward Market

“I just finished a workout and I told Catherine I was a little down on my results and she sent me this, an email saying how proud she is of me for consistently training 3 x a week and to not be down on myself about numbers, that she can see the changes and sticking to her routine means more than anything”.

— Rossana Whissell, Wellington Village

“The strengthening has really helped with my karate.  It is so important for my performance!”

–Dominique L., Byward Market

–Lucie Villeneuve, Byward Market

“Free Form in it’s entirety has become my family away from home.  The love and never ending support is what gives me the strength to know that no matter if I fall two steps behind, they are ready and willing to help me run three steps ahead! I will never stop singing the praises of FFF for they have changed my life…one day at a time!”

— Rosal Yade, Willington Village

“Alain and I just dedicated to you [Vania] our personal trainer and Torrence 2 monstrous drives on hole number 12 of the Ocean City Golf and Yatch Club (our 2nd 18th of the day) we are playing well thanks to you both.  Alain has really seen the benefits of his training sessions on the golf courses (so have I!).”

— Daniel Giasson & Alain Garceau (Shared sessions), Wellington Village

“I appreciate the fact that it is not over-crowded.  I love the personal touch, friendliness, intimacy, you are not just a number!”

–Alain Guevremont, Market

“It has made me so much stronger and happier!  It has improved my quality of life immensely.”

–Romy Ochmann, Market

“Free Form Fitness in the Byward Market is so convenient for me during my work week and I absolutely love my personal trainers!  None of this would matter though if I did not see results.  AND I SEE RESULTS!!”

–Suneeta Millington, Byward Market

“The personal trainers are incredible and truly care about you, Eric and David are so much fun to work with”

— Mary O’Shea, Glebe

“I have been with Free Form Fitness for almost four years, three times a week and have only missed five sessions. My goal is to stay healthy, physically fit and keep my stress down, particularly with all of the travel I do for work. Their trainers’ ability to adjust to my hectic schedule and still keep me on track is what keeps me coming back!”

–James Clemens, Glebe

“Missed 2 weeks, was going 2 times a week for 8 weeks and I could not sleep, I was restless and had no energy. Got sore… big decrease in my energy levels on the second week of not showing up…. I can’t wait to get going again.”    

–Marie-eve Duval, Glebe

“Dave is always upbeat and positive. I have more energy in my day to day life. I sleep better. I am able to deal with daily work issues with ease. I look forward to my weekly sessions.

–Shauna Devison, Glebe

“Workout Dave” is the best, He inspires me to achieve my fitness goals”

–Sue Wilson, Glebe

“For three years I had been doing strength training on my own, learning from books and the internet. But I had definitely hit a plateau by not having experienced people around me to make sure my form, nutrition and state of mind were dialled correctly. FFF has helped me strengthen my routine, and puns, where I feel I can push myself far more than I has assumed before and get the results I seek.”

–Philip Karpiak, Glebe

“I’m already feeling better, my clothes are fitting better and I’m even thinking about my food differently.  I never thought I needed a personal trainer, I knew what I was doing.  And for my 20’s and 30’s that worked, but now I’m in my 40’s and injured and this has been just great!”

— Daphne Maravei, Wellington Village

“I’ve tried many time to start a training program and I would usually hurt myself in one form or another and in a few weeks I would have to wait to restart. When I heard about Free Form Fitness, I decided to give them a try.  I been training for several months with no injury and now feel much stronger!  A big thanks to Mike and Matt for all the great tips!”

–Brunot Godbout, Kanata

–Joanne Clouthier, Byward Market

“FFF is the place to reach your goals.  I always have big plans, but no time to execute them. Training with Matt Uden has and is efficient, motivating and AWESOME!

— Gillian Hauderowicz,, Kanata

“I went to FFF to see if I could work through a suspected hip injury. The moment that i spoke to Tyler and Vania I knew I had come to the right place. Their vast knowledge of my injury and the exercises that they were suggesting for us to work on excited me of the prospect of working through it. After my first session with Vania I was hooked. Unfortunately the results of my scans came back and I need to have surgery and have been told to that exercise can injure the hip further so I am currently benched, but am so pumped to get back at it with the amazing team at FFF.”

— Jody Armstrong, Wellington Village

“I’ve been coming to FFF for almost 6 months.  In that time, I’ve made a lot of progress.   Not having worked with a personal trainer before, or been a member of a fitness club, I was out of shape and a little nervous about working with a personal trainer.  Thankfully, they made it easy.  I’ve worked with two personal trainers, both of whom are great … very personable and friendly.  

“I am happy with the progress I am making both in terms of muscle toning and weight loss.  I’ve also learned that these things take time and commitment.

I like the concept of FFF because it is a training-only facility.  Most clients, I discovered, are people just like me.  

If you’re considering a personal training, I would try the special deal for $96.  It’s a great way to get your foot in the door, work with a personal trainer or two, and check out the facility.”

— Brian Creamer, Wellington Village

“Free Form Fitness has been instrumental to me and my fitness goals.  When I first came to them I had done nothing physical in years!  I was out of shape and slightly overweight.  I was with them for 8 months and managed to develop a great deal of strength and losed 21lbs and more than 14% BF!  A few years later I came back because my goals had changed – I was now competing in bikini competitions and their expertise and no nonsense pushing, got me on stage and feeling great!  I loved them so much that I am now working for them!”

— Lindsay B, Kanata & Wellington Village

“FFF Inspires me to come in and work hard every day.  Nothing beats the friendly staff and environment.  Nicolas Antal has been a huge help to get me where I am today.”

— Brian Stephens, Kanata

Ryan, why so serious?

 

 

 

“FFF Has been inspirational in helping me with recovery from an injury and helped me along the way to my fitness goals.  The advice and expertise has been monumental in keeping me motivated and healthy.  They created custom meal plans and custom program and I can’t say enough about all the information share freely through online services.”

–Mike Weins, Kanata

“I’ve been with FFF for years.  They continue to challenge and motivate me to meet my fitness goals.  The personal trainers are caring, knowledgeable and very professional!”

–Alana Thomson, Kanata

“My personal trainer at FFF kicks my butt every time I come in for personal training sessions…. and I love it!”

–Allison Quinn, Kanata

“My personal trainer at Free Form Fitness Ryan is slowly and diligently transforming the way I think about fitness, health and my life generally.  Never felt so motivated! :)”

–Allison Pedro , Kanata

“Joining FFF in 2008, I thought I was joining just another gym, pushing membership.  I not only was wrong but began to realize this place REALLY cares.  The staff are wonderful and fun to work with.  Over time you realize that FFF becomes part of your extended family.  Many thanks from myself and my children. They thank you as well to see daddy in the greatest shape ever!”

–Sutinder Sandhar, Kanata

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at FFF; I lost over 20lbs and have never felt healthier.”

— David Hale, Wellington West

–Lynne Hudon, Byward Market

“It is so convenient.  I walk here from work at lunch, do my workout, energized for the rest of my day.  I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

–Lillian Amell, Byward Market

Catherine, where do you get all your energy?

 

 

“As a busy business owner I have always struggled making my health and fitness a priority. Since joining FFF I have found that having the appointments ready really holds me accountable.  Also, having someone planning and pushing me through the workout really gets me the most value for my time!  Thank you!”

— Scott Goodfellow, Kanata

“My personal trainer is a great!  He kicks my butt every time.  Thank-you Ryan for helping me achieve my goals!”

–Anick DeSousa, Byward Market

“My personal trainer is a very dedicated and focused personal trainer, I truly enjoy my time with her ”

–Sarai Porrit, Glebe

“This is a great program. The kanata facility is very complete and quite private.  The personal trainers have the ability to discuss and advise.  Personal trainer Matt Uden and Mike Robichaud both are very professional. They know the stuff and are very motivating.  You look forward to working with them and you feel like you can achieve good result with them.  In about 3 months I have lost about 25lbs.   I have trained with personal trainers in the past but this is the first time I am losing fat and building muscle.  I’ve had experience with other personal trainers in Ottawa and in facilities in the United States.  Free Form Fitness is by far the best I’ve seen.”

–Maamoun Abou Seido, Kanata

“I really like my personal trainer Chris!  The staff is awesome!  The accountability of having to make every session just works.”

–Hugo Prud’homme, Byward Market

“My training is going REALLY WELL!  So many factors contribute to my success…the discipline and accountability, the focus of pre-planned workouts.  The planning is key.”

–Michael Groves, Byward Market

“Thank YOU!  I love and appreciate my own workouts at FFF.  If I can encourage friends to challenge themselves physically with me (I need some healthy running partners!  Lol) and do it at a locally owned gym….even better :)

You guys are a great team :)”

— Dennise Yarema, Wellington West

“Three years ago I started 3 times a week at Free Form Fitness.  It was on the advice or should I say orders from my doctor to start a lifestyle change including regular exercise.  My stress was “through the roof” and my blood pressure was pathologically high.  I was determined to get off my blood pressure medication and regular exercise seemed like the best solution. Guess what? I am now free of those nasty little pills!  Thanks so much Free Form Fitness!!”

–Rachel Boyer, Byward Market

Manuelle Ether – Glebe

Both my wife and I are our 5th year at FFF and we truly enjoy the entire experience.  We have both worked with a few different personal trainers and are always amazed at their knowledge level surrounding the whole training experience.   All dealings with scheduling and payments have always been dealt with (usually by Jules) in a very friendly and professional manner. We look  forward to continuing our journey with FFF.

–Bob and Wendy brunet, Kanata

I’ve been coming to FFF  in Kanata for just over a year.  The first 10 month we focused on balancing from all the old injuries I’ve had.  The last 4-6 months have shown a huge change.  I’ve got a lot more lean muscle mass, more endurance and a ton of confidence in both what my new body can do and how i fell in my skin.  It’s all due to Nic and Ryan for introducing me to strongman training and the help from Jules on nutrition changes.   I set the goal in January of feeling confident in a swimsuit by the end of June.  I’m 90%  there and have I have 6 weeks left. It will happened all due to Free Form Fitness personal trainers help!

–Taryn Gauley, Kanata

“For me the accountability is key.  In my day to day work I know how important consistency is and this is reflected in the importance of having consistency in one’s training. The personal trainers do a remarkable job in ensuring proper exercise form with incredible attention to detail.”

–Jimmy Rudderham, Byward Market

“My personal trainer is really good! He has helped me immensely with my shoulder stability so much so that I am now doing exercises I thought would never be possible.  The nutrition guidance has been key for me.  Chris is very consistent in emphasizing how important the correct nutrition is in order for me to reach my goals.  As Chris says it is not always about calories in/calories out, it is about the quality of those calories.”

–Karen Kaschube, Byward Market

“I am back at Free Form Fitness after being off for a few years due to a family situation.  While browsing the Free Form website I knew that what I was reading is authentic, true, and there is no fluff.  I have experienced it and seen others achieve their goals.  I’ve seen the body, seen the transformation, and I’ve seen the results.”

–Lynea DeGeer, Byward Market

“You guys are the best!  Chris is great!  Facility is awesome!  Top trainers, great neighbourhood locations, and top notch service.”

— Ben Sussman, Byward Market

 “You can’t take life for granted.  You need to change.  There is always more we can do to optimize our health and lifestyle.  I am doing it at Free Form Fitness!”

–Bashir Mahoney, Byward Market

“I am tired of feeling terrible!  There have been so many setbacks and false starts.  It feels great to be sore from exercise and not from aches and pains due to sitting all the time.  I feel so much better already!”

— Kalin McCluskey, Byward Market

“This has been great, you guys are great!”

— Sandra Byrne, Wellington Village

 “I am happy, very happy!  I’ve lost inches, I’ve lost weight.  I am absolutely thrilled!  I am getting into clothes that I haven’t fit into in years.  In fact, a pair of capris I bought three years ago and threw into the back of my closet because they were too small, are now baggy on me.  Yay Free Form Fitness!”

–Lise Beauregard, Byward Market

FFF was the best thing I ever did to kickstart getting my health back on track after having 2 kids!  I was always in shape before becoming a stay-at-home mom, but couldn’t seem to get going again after two very hard pregnancies with continual illness.  The trainers at FFF really care about showing you how to workout properly and avoid serious injuries or setbacks.  They are the main reason I am finally on track to a better, healthier me.  Thanks especially to Jules and Nic!

–Bethany Cousins, Kanata

Can you hold that pose for a minute? haha

I decided to check out Free Form Fitness after speaking to some friends who are clients there. In the last few years, I have been to several different gyms and tried many different programs.  After each “false start,” I either injured myself or was simply not motivated to continue. 

I started at Free Form fitness in Kanata on January 12th and from the moment I walked in, I was “home.” I know this sounds cheesy but I felt instantly comfortable and relaxed- like I was among friends.  I was hooked from day one! I met with Jules for my assessment and was so impressed with the time and detail which was involved. Yes, I had to endure the dreaded “body fat” analysis and the weigh in but after this, he started asking me about what MY goals were and what I was looking for in a trainer! What?! They took into consideration MY goals, MY personality and MY needs and matched me with a trainer who would best motivate me and help me to achieve those goals. 

Since I started, I have lost 14 pounds and my body is transforming. I am stronger, more confident and feel so much better about myself. Beyond the physical results, I genuinely enjoy being at Free Form. I am always greeted with a smile from each and every trainer, other members and even the owners! It is a happy place and I smile and laugh while I sweat- a unique combination! I have never felt self conscious, or like I don’t belong. I never wake up thinking “I don’t want to go to the gym today.” Every person is there for the same reason and it is such a positive and motivating environment.  How many people can say they know the names of most of the people they work out with? It is a unique environment that celebrates everyone who walks through the door. For this reason and so many more, I am ALL IN!! Extremely happy client.

— Sarah Hazel, Kanata

“The training is soooo good!  Competent and extremely knowledgeable trainers.  Great encouragement.  The atmosphere is very welcoming.  Why would I go anywhere else?”

–Stephanie O’Connor, Byward Market

“The personal accountability is critical.  I love/need to be scheduled to ensure consistency. The atmosphere is wonderful, the studio is small and quaint and extremely friendly!”

–Dominique Hawthorne, Byward Market

“It is absolutely great!!  I am so glad that I started!”

–Francoise Sarkis, Byward Market

“Chris’ depth and breadth of knowledge is critical to address my physical limitations.  He creates a targeted and highly effective program which pushes me to crazy performance gains.  My abs and ‘pipes’ look awesome!”

–Amanda-May Beaubien, Byward Market

88. “I am such a firm believer in the thirty minute work-out session.  Knowledgeable trainers provide a structured program and fitness regime which maximize results in minimal time.  Plus its super fun!”

–Samantha Ierfino, Byward Market

“I am enjoying my time here at Free Form Fitness, a great place with great energy.  They help me stay focused on my goals and the support is phenomenal!”

–Brian Li, Byward Market

“I have never seen such quick results in my physical appearance when training with Tyler. Not only does he push you to lift, push and go to the next level (past what you ever thought you were capable of doing) but he does it in an encouraging non-judging environment. I am a more timid person at the gym and he not only made me feel comfortable but also feel confident in myself and my technique. His workouts are intense, original, keep you motivated and are honestly fun! Tyler is a great judge of character and has helped me reach my physical and nutritional goals. I could not imagine training with anyone else.”

— Avery Crampton, Kanata

“Being overweight WAS the story of my life. Since childhood, I was always amongst the biggest of my friends and I was teased a lot about it. My lack of self-esteem only increased throughout the years, which made me gain more and more weight. A few years ago, after reaching my highest weight of 190 lbs. I decided I deserved to feel good about myself. It’s not easy to convince yourself that you are worthy of being in good shape and healthy or even think that you can. I started the journey on my own, losing a considerable amount of weight, but I yo-yoed a lot though it. I couldn’t stay at my lowest weight for a long period of time.

Two years ago, I joined the FFF team and they made me reach goals I never thought I could reach. I am now 39 years old, fit and healthy, but most of all, I’m a great role model for my 10 year old daughter.

When I first enrolled at FFF, I intended to stay until I reached my goals and then go on on my own. However, the experience of the past year made me realize that I need the support of my coaches. I have been blessed to work with my two favourite Ryan’s at FFF Dalhousie who have been supportive and crazy at times with my workouts, but always pushing me to exceed my expectations. Thank you guys for being there! Hope you’ll stick around for a while because I sure will.”

–Caroline Joly, Byward Market

“Free Form Fitness is great!  The trainers are knowledgeable and very professional.  Thank-you so much!

–Fabierre Bonaparte, Byward Market

“Free Form Fitness has helped me sooooo much!  I was struggling with workouts and had a lot of back pain due to my tight hips.  I decided to give fascial stretch therapy a try.  I booked an appointment with Ryan and he performed FST on me. Wow, what a difference.  The FST did wonders to loosen me up and I now have great workouts and achieve much better results.  I now see Ryan once a week for FST and I have never looked back.”

–Chloe Louis-Seize, Byward Market

“It was a pleasure meeting you and working with you over the past two months.  As I had never worked with a personal trainer before I wasn’t certain what to expect but after our first session I quickly realized that a trainer is worth their weight in gold.

You were quick to recognize my physical constraints and understand my personality and used this insight to push me hard using the perfect approach. Even though I had a regular workout regime before meeting you, I appreciated your honest feedback when we reviewed it. You were not afraid to either adjust my routine or remove an exercise (squats) until I gained the proper flexibility to do it properly and avoid injury.  I have adjusted my back routine by 80% thanks to your advice and have found increased flexibility and strength in my shoulder by adjusting other exercises and movements. Changes to my routine are not isolated to these examples, I have introduced new exercises to my daily routines which have re-energized my workouts. Needless to say, all this will be invaluable as I enthusiastically move closer to fifty! It was a pleasure working with you and I thank you for your guidance, advice and support.”

—  Paul Lavigne, Glebe

Personal trainer Nick with client

All smiles

“Before Free Form Fitness I had a lot of “cant’s” in my life.  I can’t do this exercise because of my knee, I can’t do this because of my back. The trainers at FFF have developed a program that works with my body, not against it.  Now I not only “can” do certain moves, I feel like I can kick ass!”

–Andrea Dykstra, Byward Market

“In May I subscribed to the eight session discount package and, belatedly,want to express just how pleased I was with the experience. The location, equipment, and set up were first-rate, indeed very classy. The staff were absolutely professional, very knowledgeable and super courteous. I had one session with David who subsequently provided me with photos and text of the exercises. I also had one session with Eric who took me through some of the equipment which was an eyeopener regarding just how weak my muscles have become.

Most of my sessions were with Joey Blais who very quickly caught onto my hearing and vocal difficulties. In so doing he made the exercises very productive and understandable. He was pleasant and courteous throughout.

— Dan MacKinnon, Glebe

“Joining Free Form Fitness has been a great experience with all the friendly staff.  I am so glad I joined!”

–Jason (Pipes) Pipersberg, Byward Market

“The 30 minute workouts are efficient and effective. Most personal training sessions in any gym will hold you accountable; however, only in FFF have I felt the personal touch. The trainers and the staff remember you and your goals, challenges, and personal life. You become part of a community, and that positivity will drive you to success.”

–H.M., Byward Market

“Only at the fifth session and I can already feel the results – both mentally and physically.  Can’t wait for the rest!”

–Felix Boudreault, Byward Market

“I joined Free Form Fitness in June/July 2014 to workout with Tyler Fawcett. I’ve knew Tyler from his old gym and had great results. One of the thing I like the best is he knows when to mix up a workout to keep motivated (which can be hard at times but he hasn’t given up on me!!). He goes above and beyond to check in to help keep me on track. I am very grateful to have Tyler in my corner to help me reach my goals.”

–Emily Colton, Kanata

“I have been training on my own for awhile now and was extremely happy with the variety and intensity of my workouts after seeking at personal trainer at FFF. The atmosphere is judgement free and really allows me to push my limits each workout. Thanks FFF, summer bod is coming along nicely.”

— Andrea Powers

“I saw amazing results training at FFF with my personal trainer. He was awesome, always motivating me and pushing me to work harder than I have before.”

— Casey Bleeker

“Before I started at FFF, I didn’t know how hard I could push myself. My personal trainers encouraged me to train to my full potential. At first I thought it would be intimidating however Tyler really made me feel comfortable working out. Thanks FFF!”

— Cassie Honey Kanata

“The training at Free Form Fitness has been a critical element of my life for a number of years now. I feel very lucky to be training with Ryan to help me build my strength and rehab my knees. His approach has enabled me to move in ways I didn’t think was possible anymore. He doesn’t back off, just adjusts. The most important element of working with a personal trainer is trust – I trust him implicitly – I know that Ryan won’t make my injuries worse. His focus and attention has also provided some new insights – turns out I haven’t been walking properly since the original injury. Knowing that, I can fix it with his help. The best is yet to come!”

— Meredith Thatcher, Kanata

“Back in February I took advantage of this offer. I am so glad I did. Mike has helped me so much both with fitness and nutrition. I am losing weight and feel so much better. The migraines I used to get every second week are no where near as often or severe. If you have been thinking about getting in shape (or getting back to the shape you desire) this is the place to go. Do your body a favour. Be sure to tell them I sent you!”

— Joy Brunton , Kanata

“The training I receive at FFF has changed not only my health but has given me the tools and mental strength to continue on this journey for years to come. Unfortunately…it also resulted in having to purchase a new wardrobe”.  

— Paul Brohman, Wellington

Ryan always emphasizing posture

 

“This experience has been a (pleasant!) surprise on every level. I’ve always hated working out and avoided gyms. But FFF is unlike any gym experience either one of us has had in the past. The biggest differences are that they cater to one’s preferred training style (e.g., push you hard, support/encourage, etc.) and pay close attention to your every move to maximize the benefit of each exercise and to avoid injuries. Since I started strength training at FFF I’ve become more toned, stronger and always look forward to my sessions.”

– Sandra Zohar, Wellington

“So far these sessions have given me a huge motivational boost.  I look forward to the next time I get into the gym EVERYTIME!”

–Sonya Wetzel, Byward Market

“I feel so much better since I started coming to Free Form.  Jon has been an exceptional trainer!”

–Jennifer MacDonald, Byward Market

“It is a great workout!  Believe it or not it has been fun pushing myself like I haven’t done since university.”

–Feo S., Byward Market

“Free Form Fitness has helped me to gain more knowledge about my diet and the way exercises should be performed during my workout.”

–Lucia Cortez, Byward Market

“It is going GREAT!  I am so glad that I joined.  I am already seeing improvements after my first few sessions.”

–Veronica Sigurdson, Byward Market

“It has been a great experience so far.  I already feel like I can be so much stronger and fitter!”

–Paula Carty, Byward Market

“They work me like a dog and I sweat like a pig, in a good way! I love it!”

–Sandra Griffith-Bonaparte, Byward Market

“I began working with Chris at FFF after spending 5 months recovering from a torn calf muscle. In my recovery period I was not able to do much working out and as a result I lost a lot of muscle and put on a significant amount of weight. As a person that identifies as being an “athlete,” not being able to work out caused me to become quite depressed and lose a lot of self-confidence. I have only been coming into FFF for under 2 months and I am already feeling stronger and I am regaining my confidence and happiness in life. My personal trainer has pushed me to be more accountable, not only to him but to myself and to my ongoing recovery. Thanks!”

–Laura Mee, Byward Market

 “Building muscle and confidence in unison–that’s pretty freaking priceless!”

–Rachelle Dickenson, Byward Market

“Despite the fact I can barely write at this moment…it feels AMAZING!  Thanks so much for helping me reach my goals!”

–Isabell Avudria, Byward Market

“For almost three years I have been coming to FFF. In the three weekly sessions I attend I receive a tailored program of exercise that evolves with my personal goals and my level of fitness.  The program is designed and overseen by my trainer who is clearly knowledgeable, committed and quite capable of pushing the envelope when I start wanting to backslide.  The location and hours are great, scheduling is easy and flexible, and the fact that all the trainers work together as a team promotes a feeling of community and caring.”

— David Cluff, Wellington

Work that chest!

“I am really enjoying my experience here. My health is extremely important to me. This is not my first go at Personal Training. In my past experiences, it wasn’t a bad or horrible one. My issue was that I am a busy professional and I was often usually toast after my workouts. I can work hard but I need to be able to function I couldn’t work out in the morning due to no energy after training with my trainer. I needed to train smarter not necessarily harder. I was a complete vegetarian when started now I eat chicken, fish and eggs. Been here for three month and I’ve noticed I am significantly stronger. My recovery time has improved immensely and I am now able to work out in the mornings which is much better for me. I have a torn ACL and my trainer has only worked around it. I have increased my strength, lost a few pounds and have lost inches. The difference at FFF is that they are genuine and authentic. Thanks so much FFF and David, you guys are exactly what I need.”

–Vidya Shankarnarayan, Glebe

“Thumbs up – it’s exactly what I needed. Everyone is so enjoyable and I love that it is scheduled. I need it to be waiting for me!”

–Kathy F, Glebe

“My experience at FFF has been nothing but positive. The friendly atmosphere with the obvious desire my trainers have to push me to live a healthier lifestyle has changed my life forever. The sense of accountability at the beginning of this journey is an incredible motivator and it really engraved the discipline needed to continue on with this lifestyle forever. I don’t feel like just another client. The trainers here are the best I have ever encountered in the industry.”

–Paulo Aguiar, Wellington West

“Ryan and Matt have done an exceptional job pushing me. Just when I thought I reached my limit, they help me crush the limit and raise the bar. It’s a worthwhile experience at FFF and the best decision I’ve made for myself.”

— Taj Hans, Kanata

“I have been a member of FFF since the beginning 9 years ago. I love the variety of the trainers and the warm feeling you get when you walk thru the door. There are times a person just does not feel like doing it but you never leave saying I wish I never did that. Attitude is everything and all the people at FFF have amazing attitudes. Keep up the excellent work, FFF!”

–Tina Walsh, Kanata

“Coming back to the gym is always hard, so getting a jump-start with a personal trainer can really provide the “push” to put it back in the routine. My trainers have made it fun from day 1 and provides a great balance of the things I like (weights) with the things I need (cardio) to obtain my personal goals.”

–Kate Jubinville, Kanata

Oh yeah!

“The trainers at FFF are outstanding. I feel so much stronger and feel more confident in myself which is worth any investment.”

–Nathan Sheaff, Kanata

“Matt is a very motivational and knowledgeable trainer. In fact, every trainer at FFF has been. Finding great results working with them!”

— Akbar, Kanata

“I joined Free Form to hopefully breakthrough a plateau I had reached after having 2 babies.  I initially expected I would join the gym for a few introductory sessions, but after such a motivating experience with Matt I decided to continue on. Within 4 weeks not only did I break through my plateau but I lost 10 pounds! The service and commitment from all the staff and trainers makes every experience in the gym a positive one.”

–Lindsay Thom, Kanata

“It may surprise you to hear this: I have not been nor ever will be your typical ‘gym’ person. In fact, I do not enjoy the gym – that was until I joined Free Form Fitness and met my personal trainer David Maranger.

It was Stephanie Boucher, Owner of Stephanotis Hair, who recommended I try Free Form Fitness after I had noticed two changes: my arms had no muscle strength and I had gained weight to the point where it was decision time. The question was how did I want to age? Healthy or unhealthy?

The eight session introduction is pure genius: not only did I get to check-out the team and their approach before making a commitment, but I actually started to see results in those eight 30 minute sessions.

And that is where David comes in.

Simply said, I think David Maranger is the perfect personal trainer. He has always been respectful while challenging me to push myself further – in a safe way. He encourages me to keep eating healthy foods while being realistic that I will have the occasional scotch and crème brulee. He has a fantastic sense of humour which helps me get through the more challenging exercises and most importantly, he has made me feel comfortable in a gym.

In the brief time I have been working with David, I have lost close to 20 pounds and, most importantly, I feel stronger. That is the only proof you need that David Maranger’s techniques work and Free Form Fitness is the place to be.”

— Raylene Lang-Dion, Glebe

“I love working out! It’s all thanks to Nick and FFF! I have more energy, I feel great and I’m seeing positive changes! Nick is really positive and great at motivating me! Going to keep training with him and FFF forever! Nic, you da best!”

–Ariane Sabourin, Kanata

“I started FFF in January 2015. I enjoy coming in every week to my sessions because it is such a positive and encouraging place to workout. The workouts are always changing so you never get bored! My trainers are extremely motivating and pushes me further that I think I can go. My strength and cardio have improved so much in the past 6 months. I feel much better and have more energy. Looking forward to achieving all my lifetstyle goals at FFF!”

–Alyson Ferguson, Kanata

Pump it up!

“I took the 8 session trial and found that I was not as fit as I thought. I had fantastic trainers who had me doing exercises I have never done before. Keep up the good work guys!”  

— Rick Fage, Wellington

“Joining Free Form Fitness has been one of the best decisions I have made in order to achieve my goal to live a healthier and more well balanced life.  The team at the Wellington location are the perfect mix of professional and fun.  I look forward to each of my personal training sessions with them on a weekly basis – a kind of retreat to focus on myself, have fun, push myself and sweat it out!  FFF has become part of my routine and I wouldn’t want it any other way! Since I joined Free Form Fitness six months ago, I have gained a lot of new insight on how to achieve my goals by looking at my nutrition and coupling it with different types of workouts (which are always challenging but still a lot of fun).  

I have been a member of big chain gyms before, for several years, and I have never seen the results I have seen there as I have by training at Free Form Fitness.  When you go to FFF, you get the feeling that the whole team genuinely cares about your progress and really wants to see you succeed.  They really do provide you with the tools to reach that type of personal success – as long as you’re willing to put the effort in, they will be right by your side helping you along and motivating you.  I have noticed huge improvements in my cardio, endurance, and strength since I started and I can’t wait to see what the next six months will bring!”

— Leah Bortolotti, Wellington

“Choosing FFF for my fitness goals was the best decision I could have made. All of the staff here are very warm & welcoming. Since starting in June, (about a month ago) working with Matt has led me to being many pounds lighter, already down from 18.6 to 13.5% body fat. I can already see significant cosmetic changes in my body. Just when I think I can’t go any further, my trainer pushes me and gets me to where I need to be!”

— Joey Ghattas, Kanata

“Training is going great and I love working with David.  Getting a lot out of it.”

— Valerie Clements, Glebe

“I’m now about 15-20 sessions into FFF.  I was fairly fit starting, jogged for 50+ years and occasional gym sessions.  I find thank I am stronger, but biggest change is back, neck and head pains are all gone!  I appreciate Joey taking me through a variety of exercises, never boring, and I feel that I am being pushed.”

— Robin Fairfull-Smith, Glebe

“I locked myself out of the house when I took Cami for a walk this afternoon.  I brought keys — wrong keys.  My outside door was unlocked so I was able to get into the porch and “flat hand” my living room window open.  

I had done the same thing two years ago or  more and had a tough time getting through the opening as I could not pull up and fit through my second leg and hips.  I thought about going to my neighbour who has backup keys, but decided to see if I could manage with the window opening.  I went through with no fuss or strain in about the same way I would walk through a doorway.  

I am not getting any younger, and nothing has changed except FFF.

If you are interested in the special offer FFF has on right now I recommend it very highly.”

— Jean Flowers, Wellington West

“FFF and Joey’s excellent care have put me onto the track I have been so wanting and struggling to get onto on my own.  Thank you for you encouragement, pushing and genuine care it is JUST what I needed!  I’m a healthier, happier me because of FFF & Joey!”

— Louise Demers, Glebe

“Great motivation from the trainers! Explaining what the exercise is for is great.  Also great use of the full 30 minutes, definitely a good workout! Great way to top off a work day!”

Isabel Theberge, Glebe

Attention to detail

 

“Great experience.  The trainers (Joey & Eric) are very knowledgeable.  I told them the areas I wanted to focus on and they personalized the exercises accordingly.  They pushed me to work hard & very motivational.  The hours are very accommodating as well.”

— Raquel Castro, Glebe

“Really appreciated that Joey & David paid attention to the injuries I was recovering from.  The one-on-one, personalized sessions have been a key part of my returning to being active – without re-injury!”

— Laura Buckland, Glebe

“I really like the training sessions with Joey.  He has challenged me to get fit but not pushed me to do exercises I was uncomfortable with.  In only a few months I feel like I have more energy and I feel stronger!  Thanks Free Form Fitness!”

— Sangeeta Raju, Glebe

“Since coming to FFF, I have found the routine of two days a week very useful.  My core strength and cardio have improved significantly.

— Ram Raju, Glebe

“FFF has exceeded my expectations in a very short amount of time, I lost more weight and met more goals in 3 months here than I did at other places in 3 years. And that’s just twice a week for 30 minutes.”

–Gregory McWilliams, Glebe

“Really enjoy the training with David and Joey.  I work hard the whole 30 minutes.

— Elaine Feldman, Glebe

“Noticeable improvements over the sessions, enjoyed working with Joey and the facilities.  A good learning experience.”

— Jim Montgomery, Glebe

“I just signed up for 6 months after the 8 session trial. Tyler pushes me to try things that I would never normally do – specifically lift more weight than I ever thought. I already feel stronger. The staff is awesome and very welcoming. I would highly recommend FFF to any of my friends. Thanks Tyler!

— Sarah Briones, Wellington

“I started working out at Free Form Fitness on a trial basis. However, once my limited sessions were finished I did not want to leave! I trained with Free Form for a of couple months and during this time I learnt so much about fitness and nutrition that I had no idea about before. Prior to joining, I considered myself to be a fit person, but I was never able to push myself hard enough. I had a great trainer that personalized all of my workouts around my specific goals. My workouts were always different and challenging and my trainer always encouraged me when I struggled. Free Form Fitness is definitely a place I would come back to and recommend to anyone!”

— Maxine Binder, Glebe

“Absolutely adoring my time at FFF, and two fantastic trainers (David & Joey) are the reason why.  Feel so much better about myself, and I’m no longer self-conscious.”

— Sam Weinstein, Glebe

“Life is busy and making time to do the things you know you should like exercise, can definitely be put on the back burner.  Knowing that I’ve made a commitment to David and Joey and that they will make the best use of my time is motivating and the reason I show up.  I always feel so much better when I leave then when I wouldn’t.  Thanks so much.”

— Letizia Gardin, Glebe

“I’ve been a Free Form member since October 2014. When I first joined, I was at a point in my life that without the right support and motivation, I wouldn’t be able to make any changes. The team at the Kanata location made me feel like anything is possible. I feel grateful for them, especially Nick. His enthusiasm and encouragement kept me going. Finally a “gym” that got it right.”

— Jenny Campbell, Kanata

“I’ll preface this to say that I have no former gym experience and therefore no baseline to compare FFF to, so please take this as a relatively uneducated testimonial. FFF has been nothing but friendly and accomodating. Their warmth and competent staff provide a wonderful training environment and experience. I have had great success in my personal fitness while training here. While I attribute much of this to changes in myself, FFF has always worked alongside with me and helped me achieve my goals in a manner parallel to my own approach. Thank you Mike and Matt for helping me achieve my goals and your endless knowledge and encouragement!”

–Colin Campbell, Kanata

On CTV working on the core

“My first workout at FFF was tough, no…crazy. Let’s face it, I got the proof I needed that I wasn’t as fit as I thought. My legs were jelly and I was pretty sure I had destroyed my abdominal region. After a few months of working out with my trainers I not only finished that workout and more but I’m adding in more weight, more reps, and look forward to stretching the goal each time. I see a ton of progress in my stamina, my muscle tone, my energy level and most important I get all the way out to the parking lot before I start crying! Ha ha

These workouts are a huge step towards better health, a better outlook on life and the gang is so much fun. I’m having a blast. Can’t write anymore…arms are shaking from that workout. Thanks FFF for being so incredible!”

–Jayne O’Brien, Kanata

“My experience here for the past 5 months has been a very positive experience. My instructors, Vania and Eric have from the start set up weekly programmes that were beneficial for me. I certainly see how much stronger I am and confident in my daily tasks. Thanks to both for their encouragement!”

–Anna Laughton, Wellington

“Since Oct. 3/13, my health has improved, my stamina, and I reached my weight loss goal.”

–Elaine Von Tobel, Wellington

“I signed up with FFF for 8 sessions and just in that short amount of time, I feel rejuvenated. My energy has increased and my confidence is restored. Thank you so much!”

–Melina Jean, Wellington

“In April 2014 I decided to take a different approach to a healthier lifestyle and give Free Form Fitness a test run. I heard about FFF at a Aging with Rage event at GCTC and was impressed with what I heard – particularly from a woman’s point of view. They lived up to my expectation by encouraging me each and every step of the way from Fitness to Nutrition. I have lost 20 pounds and 3 inches off my waist and I have reached my half–way point to my ultimate weight loss goal – but that wasn’t the only reason I joined.

I needed the motivation to look after myself for a change – as a caregiver for my husband over the last ten years it has been very difficult to put my health first and not feel guilty about it. Going to FFF twice a week and having Tyler Prieur, Catherine Marion and Lindsey Blue in my corner and at times my subconscious has kept me focused and gave me an outlet to work off stress and pounds too. I must admit that I’ve had a few set backs too but they are their to get me re-focused.

Personal trainer client Brian

Looking good!

It’s that personal touch that sets FFF apart from other one-size-fits all gyms that I have experienced. If you are looking for a refreshing, tailor-made approach to a healthier lifestyle consider FreeFormFitness – you are worth it! Right?”

–Monique G. Tremblay, Wellington

“I’ve known Jon for years.  What I really know and understand is how much he actually cares about me and my health.  I feel better about myself and have tons more energy.  I can see improvements already in the way I feel and how I look.  I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for me!

–Mike MacDonald, Byward Market

“I had tremendous success with FFF in 2011 going from 232 lbs to 170 lbs.  The winter of 2015 was not good to me personally and along the way I lost my way with fitness and health.  I have returned to FFF to reclaim it and get back on track with my long-term goals.  I feel my trainer, Jon, and the team here are definitely the crew to get me back to my glory years!”

–Michael Read, Byward Market

“A wonderful experience!! Jon was instrumental in getting me to feel ‘fit’ once again.  He was a great coach and very cooperative with my schedule.  I will cherish this association and never forget it!”

–Subhash Malholtra, Byward Market

“I have been having a GREAT time at FFF.  I have learned so much already in just a few sessions.  I can definitely see progress and can’t wait to see more improvement!”

— Saskia Griffiths, Byward Market

“I have been wit FFF since May of this year (2015) and I absolutely LOVE it!  My trainer, Ryan, is fantastic and in only two short months I am already seeing monumental results.  I have more energy, I am in better moods, and I actually look forward to working out.  I recommend it 100%!”

— Kim Barrett, Byward Market

“I’ve never felt comfortable in a gym setting before, mostly because I have limited knowledge of how to better my body through exercise. Coming to FFF, I was apprehensive, but the trainers have all been very welcoming and comforting. I feel that, even in only 6 sessions into my intro, I feel stronger and more accomplished. I’m definitely going to keep coming back; not only to better myself, but to maintain this whole experience.”

— Saniye Sahin, Glebe

“I’m so glad I signed up for Free Form Fitness- It’s made a huge improvement in my fitness, both strength and cardio. I was stagnating going my own routine and FFF provided the extra direction and motivation I needed. My posture has improved tenfold since I started in April and all daily activities, from opening doors and lifting my son to moving furniture, is so much easier. I’ve worked with Dave, Joey and Eric at the Glebe location and they all have there own styles, which provides a great overall perspective of fitness. I can recommend each of them. Great experience!”

— Caitlin O’Doyle, Glebe

“I’m glad I signed up for Free Form Fitness. I work 12 hour shifts and it’s hard to get to the gym. Since I started going I have noticed a change in my strength. The individual training is great. It’s nice to work out one on one and get encouragement and learn how to do exercises with proper form. So far it’s been a great experience!”

— Corinna Pritchard, Glebe

“Working out at FFF has been great. Matt is excellent at explaining the movements and what they train. He is very good at steadily increasing the,. He is also very good at encouraging me throughout. Thank you so much FFF!”

— Megan Cataford, Kanata

Love seeing this

“Triple F is all about accountability.  Not only are you accountable for your own success but the personal trainers take ownership over your success as well- this is why it works.  You and the trainers are a team striving for a goal and that is what I love about it because the accountability is not only held in the gym but outside as well.  Just because the workout is done doesn’t mean the accountability is finished.”

–Shannon Kenward

“I trained with Vania at FFF all through my pregnancy and afterwards.  The tailored workouts and advice helped keep me energized and healthy throughout!  Afterwards, I find I bounced back quickly and am able to work out harder than ever.  I’m so happy with the results and would recommend anyone train here pre- and post-natal.”

–Ashley Glen

“Earlier in the summer I walked into Free Form Fitness located on Bank St and was greeted by many friendly and professional employees. I decided to enroll myself into their introductory program and was paired immediately with Mr. Eric Langford.  Mr. Langford was briefed about my medical condition and started researching my disease, with this research in hand he was able to format a training session completely catered to my physical limitations. Mr. Langford has been an exceptional trainer and as a result I have lost several pounds and inches, his continued support has made my transition back into fitness smooth and positive.  The staff and training facilities are exceptional. Go Free Form Fitness!”

“Free Form Fitness was instrumental in helping me, not only with nutritional advice, but also giving me the confidence to trust myself more than the so-called experts. There is so much mixed information out there … You have to figure out what’s right for you.”

— Don Whiting, Wellington Village

“A big thank you to the team at Glebe Free Form for supporting my return to strength training after having my kids!”

— Natalie Byers, Glebe

“ I have been training with Matt Uden at FFF since March this year.  I hate exercise and my movement of choise is to turn pages on the novel I’m reading!  Matt has been amazing!! He has inspired me and encouraged me and was willing to start the training in a slow manner and build up as I was terrified of the whole idea of working out in a gym and I was turning 60.  His immense knowledge of how to strengthen problem areas such as knees, shoulders, plantar fasciitis, etc., ensured that he always knew how to strengthen the area before pushing me.  He has even incorporated some running into my workout.  I can’t believe I’m doing what I’m doing at the gym.  this has immensely changed my quality of life including lowered anxiety, increased energy and flexibility.  I look forward to the time I spend with Matt each week, in training and being educated.

— Margaret (Margy) McGregor, Kanata

— Dean Watson, Glebe (August 2015)

“The workouts at FFF have been stellar.  One of the greatest challenges I have had in the past is to maintain my heart rate.  I would tend to take many breaks and consequently spend a lot of time at the gym with minimal results.  These workouts are exactly the opposite!  High and sustained heart rate with specific muscle development all within ½ hour.  Matt is awesome as are all the personal trainers here! Keep up the fabulous work!

— Kevin Isenor, Kanata

— Emily Bond, Glebe

Personal training client tarad

yep …that happened too.

–Marie Victor, Byward Market

“For a seasoned fitness veteran or for a first-timer like myself, FFF is a great place to work-out.  Not only is the planning and programming phenomenal, the cost is very affordable.  The instructors are exceptionally knowledgeable and helpful.  So much so that ask them any question concerning fitness, nutrition, or lifestyle and they will have a comprehensive and accurate response, and if they do not know, they will find out!”

— Melanie Tremblay, Glebe

“My husband and I have been clients at the FFF fitness Wellington location for a year now and love it! After too many years of putting everything else first and multiple failed attempts to lose weight on our own, he signed us up for a consult. We love the one on one training, motivation and accountability. For the first time ever we actually enjoy going to the gym thanks to our great trainers Catherine, Vania, Eric and Tyler.  They are so invested in our success to get healthy it makes it easier for us to reach our goals. We’ve both lost weight and inches and feel great. We love the family friendly atmosphere and positive attitude of the trainers that we’ve decided to keep up our training with FFF.”

–Tammy Nault and Charlie Harvey, Wellington

“I’ve been working with Catherine for my 8 session promo package and had sustained a broken hand and wrist before I began. Catherine helped me work around my injuries while still giving me a great workout. Having not exercised in quite some time my body has felt the benefits and I would recommend anyone regardless of their injuries. Give this a try. It is so worth it as they are more than willing to create a program around you – the sign of great trainers.”

–SF, Wellington

“Coming to FFF has been unexpectedly fun making the time you are training go by very fast!  Jon is fun to train with and always has varied workouts which keep me learning new skills and moves.  Resistance training has also motivated me to want to eat more sensibly.”

— Nazim Ahmed, Wellington Village

“The team at FFF has to be the most enjoyable and most effective personal trainer I have ever had”

–Daniel Weinand, Glebe

— Nathan Sheaff, Kanata

“For the past 2 sessions I have met with Matt Uden.  I have found him to be very knowledgable and engaging.  Straight up he has gone through my initial assessment with Nic, plus he has been informed about some back issues I have been having – he was very careful to ensure no further injury to my back took place.  I really enjoy his attitude and the methods used to keep me motivated for those final few reps.  He is serious, but that is tempered with humour and a very positive attitude.  Overall, I find him to be a fantastic fit for me here at FFF.  Thanks much!

— Scott Spallin, Kanata

–Seema Rampersad, Byward Market

“I bought the promo package last Christmas but delayed using it due to a shoulder injury. 8 months later I decided I had better start working out as the should was not improving anyway. After 3 workouts with Catherine and Vania my shoulder pain actually lessened! My schedule is/has been incredibly busy and consequently I haven’t been working out. Having a trainer got me back into exercising in doable time limits with great workouts. This has been very important and I would recommend highly. Both Catherine and Vania are great trainers able to design a program around your abilities and needs.”

–Joyce Abarbenel, Wellington

“The best endorsement I can give Tyler and Eric is the way I don’t need to buy bigger pants each month. The mix of encouragement, mentoring and burn is ideal for someone like me who got winded tying their shoes.”

The best endorsement I can give is that FFF’s intro sessions to personal training has reshaped my views on working out. What used to seem like an arduous task is now something fun and fast that works with my busy schedule.”

“Catherine Marion is the bestest! So are all of the trainers at FFF!! I could not start my day without a training session with her!”

— C. Lee, Wellington

“Free Form Fitness has a welcoming, non intimidating atmosphere perfect for all levels of training. While at first skeptical of the effectiveness of a 30 minute training session, I know I work harder and accomplish more than in traditional hour long sessions. While still a fairly new member, I have already noticed myself stronger and more physically competent both while training and in my everyday life.   The staff is great, always positive and motivating.  I look forward to my Monday/Wednesday/Friday sessions as a great way to start the day.”

–Andrew Levitan, Byward Market

“This is my first time having a personal trainer.  Alex, my trainer, has been super great and she has taught me soooo much!  I would recommend Alex and Free Form Fitness over and over again!”

“FFF has exceeded my expectations by a lot. The training sessions are professional and designed just for my condition. Totally successful experience.”

–Diane Hull, Wellington

“I’m so glad that I decided to try FFF. Since joining, I’ve felt more energetic on a day to day basis and have had an all around better mood. I feel more in tune with my body and the way that it feels everyday. The idea of accountability works so well for me – once my session is booked there is no turning back and no making excuses. Tyler is a great trainer – really enjoy the relaxed (yet effective) attitude. The pace is perfect and I leave the gym feeling accomplished every time! Thanks Tyler and the FFF team!”

–Safi Benaissa, Byward Market

“A very full and efficient thirty (30 mins).  Well-planned and structured.  A lot more taxing than you would anticipate from a 30-mins workout and it carries with you the whole day.  Thanks Jon, Rich and FFF!!

–Nick Zhang, Byward Market

“Great workout in thirty mins. Needed a personal trainer to really push my limits.  This was my first time using a PT and definitely will continue.  Keep up the good work guys!

–Phillip Ho, Byward Market

“As many other people, I was going through one of those busy phases of life with work, study and a small kid at home.  I wanted to do some exercise but I was never able to find time to do it.  When I saw FFF’s ad announcing the trial package for $98  I thought it would be a good incentive.  And it was!  But not only that.  The staff was always really friendly.  The experience of having personal training was great and it showed me that it is possible to have a good quality workout with 30 minute sessions. FFF was fundamental to make me get exercise back in my routine.  Thanks guys!”

— Daniel Bianchi, Kanata

“FFF has given me a great introduction to working out, putting my anxiety and uncertainties completely at ease.  I leave every session better informed and me confident having had my limits pushed.  The staff are all friendly but know how to motivate me to push myself so that I leave exhausted.  Thanks for your help, Monique!”

— Rebecca Rahme, Kanata

–Tezeta Mitiku, Byward Market

“Over the past year I really took an undeserving break from keeping my body in peak shape.  Jonathan has helped me realign my fitness goals and provided a step by step plan to getting myself back on track and into the lifestyle I want, and more importantly, need to have.  Every business needs a plan and so does your body!”

–Chris Nucci, Byward Market

— Jill Belore, Wellington

“ I am really enjoying my sessions with Mike and Monique.  I like the philosophy behind my workout and that it is tailored for my needs/strengths/weaknesses.  The trainers are very knowledgeable and have opened my eyes to a new way of training using dynamic warm ups and varying repetitions. The environment is very friendly and stress free.  They push you to the limit without exceeding them.”

— Ian Clipperton, Kanata (October 2015) (55)

“A few weeks ago, I signed up for FFF’s 8 session introductory offer. I’ve never liked gyms or working out but this system of working intensely for half an hour is different. I feel that I accomplish a lot in a short period of time. I like the personal trainers’ personalized approach, the professionalism, and close attention to detail. The knowledge of these personal trainers is quite impressive. Thank-you so much!”

–Nora Viale, Byward Market 

“I am really enjoying myself at FFF/Dalhousie. In my opinion, the cooperation with Ryan M. is very good, and he has a good eye in terms of finding the optimal weight levels for me. The exercises he lines up for me are very varying and he justifies them for me in a way that is very convincing and motivating. As I told him yesterday, I am starting to feel muscles in my body that I did not know even existed, and this only two weeks after I started. Also, the things with posture he is doing are probably very important, because at work, I mainly sit by the computer. I am very satisfied with how things are developing.”

–Markku Suski, Byward Market

“My experience at Free Form Fitness has been very rewarding. The staff have been very helpful and the guidance has been top-notch. They have been cognizant to not push me beyond my limits whilst providing instruction in a helpful, and easy manner.”

–Earl Atnikov, Byward Market

I look forward to my workouts with Luzia and even find them enjoyable!  The workouts are very effective especially when compared to the times when I would try to plan and do everything on my own. Give these guys a chance to make a positive difference in your life–You will not regret it!”

–Barb Sibiga, Byward Market

“I am learning a lot about keeping the correct postures while performing the prescribed exercises. It certainly makes the workouts much more difficult; however, my movements are much more efficient further enhancing my progression toward my goals.  Thanks!”

–Valerie Veilleux, Byward Market

“I had signed up for the Introductory Sessions. The sessions were well organized and informative. There was a lot of feedback and encouragement throughout the workout. Some exercises accommodated the fact that I have joint issues, but all areas were targeted. Overall it was a great experience.”

— Glebe Client

“So far my experience has been great. With each new session I’ve learned something new and new ways to keep improving.”

–Spence Mandy, Wellington

“Tyler is an incredibly flexible trainer, capable of varying my routine to accommodate for some complex neurological symptoms that vary my capacity and endurance widely. He’s intuitive, sensitive to the need for adjustment, and always motivates me to work harder than I could try alone. He gives me confidence and helps me realize gradual but steady progress. My time in the gym under his instruction is often one of the best parts of my overall health and well-being.”

–M. Champagne, Wellington

“I love training with Cat! She is knowledgeable, fun, supportive, and dedicated. She is always looking for new ways to make workouts benefit the potential of each unique client!

–Leah B, Wellington

–Solon Angel, Wellington

Personal training client Nancy

Another super mom

“Simply Awesome!!!  Since joining, I’ve lost weight, I have a higher energy level and I feel great. Matt and Nick are great trainers, very knowledgeable and incredible motivators. Can’t wait for my next workout (never thought I would be saying that)!”

— Derik Belair, Kanata

“This is my first experience with personal training. Love it! I have some personal limitations that make exercising a challenge. FFF is able to work within them and yet able to challenge me. Looking forward to making this a successful journey to increased wellness.”  

— Nadia Shewchenko, Kanata

“I am enjoying my time at FFF because I get to improve my flexibility, strength and balance.  I think that I have improved a lot since my first time here. I am improving the flexibility in my legs and core strength.”

–Sacha Godbout, Kanata

“Thank you Free Form Fitness for getting my attention with your great promotion sign on Bank street. Since I’ve started working with Monique and Dave, I feel so much better and definitely less stressed!  Love your concept and approach with personal training!”

–Niloo Aliabadi, Glebe

“I tried other fitness programs but found them either too generic or too impersonal which made it hard to get motivated. With FFF I’ve got a pair of trainers who tailor each workout to my personal needs and goals. They give me motivation throughout each workout and challenge me to push myself hard. So now instead of dreading fitness, I look forward to each session. I’ve seen significant improvement in strength and range of mobility.”

–Derek Chaplin, Kanata

“Free Form Fitness has been an absolute blast to experience and a huge benefit to my overall health and fitness. The workouts are very specific and vary, providing increasing challenges as well as working around injuries or long-term conditions. Ryan is very knowledgeable, patient and motivating which is a perfect combination to keep me challenged, learning and most importantly, coming back!”

— Roy Sarkar, Kanata

“I have been interested in trying PT for a few years and this was a great opportunity to do so. The facilities at FFF are very nice and the atmosphere is very friendly and low key (not intimidating at all).  The assessment identified my goals and strengths and weaknesses and the sessions were designed around there.  They work on a team model whereby you have 2 trainers that you alternate with. My trainers were Mike and Nick who were both very knowledgeable. They took the time to explain each exercise and adjusted them accordingly if I expressed any concerns. It’s nice to have that extra push and motivation that you might not have if working on your own. Overall I enjoyed these sessions and I am glad that I decided to try it. Thanks Mike and Nick!”

— Julie Kiska, Kanata

“What a great experience. The team took the time to explain how the muscular system is interconnected and how they must work together. They developed a comprehensible exercise plan to work all of the key muscles including the core.  A very encouraging atmosphere with attention to detail.  Thanks Jon!”

–Dan Kuzell, Byward Market
