Your journey to a healthier, more active lifestyle

It's all about you!

You're ready to make a change but not sure where to start. Gyms are overwhelming. Fad diets don't work. 

TrymGym is a lifestyle re-training program that guides you into forming healthier eating and activity habits.

The TrymGym program includes:

One-on-one consultation

Meet with a personal trainer to discuss your needs and build a plan that works for you. You won't do anything you aren't comfortable with. Your trainer will help you assess your abilities and work with you to achieve your goals.

8 weeks of classes

The initial 8-week program includes small group training sessions twice a week. Trainer-led workouts are designed to help you meet your daily activity guidelines with resistance and cardiovascular training in a supportive environment. These workouts are targeted for weight loss. 

Qualified personal trainers

Your whole journey will be led by qualified personal trainers with advanced certifications through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. Following the 8 weeks of workouts, you will revisit the one-on-one consultation with your trainer to track the progress that you made.

Fitness membership

Included with your registration is a free membership to the UCalgary Fitness Centre, so you are welcome to access the facility outside of the class times.

TrymGym initial program

Begin your journey to a more active lifestyle in this eight-week program of twice weekly, small group training sessions. These sessions are led by personal trainers who have advanced certifications through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. The classes help you meet your daily activity guidelines through resistance and cardiovascular training in a non-intimidating environment.

In addition to the exercise component, the TrymGym initial program includes two one-hour interactive presentations with a Registered Dietitian as well as ongoing e-mail support throughout the eight weeks. Each one-hour presentation will focus on vital nutrition information needed to live healthier, as well as introduce strategies to aid you in achieving your health goals. This information will empower you to make important and lasting lifestyle changes.
