The TrymGym initial program includes:

One-on-one consultation

Before the program begins, you will meet with your trainer to discuss your needs and goals, as well as go over a few standard fitness tests. All assessments are catered to your unique goals and are individualized to meet you where you are at. Following the program, you will revisit these same tests to measure your progress.

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, non-intimidating environment.

Qualified professionals

Your fitness journey will be led by highly knowledgeable personal trainers with advanced certifications through the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology. You’ll also take part in two presentations by a Registered Dietician and be provided with on-going email support throughout the program.

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. 

*Please note: TrymGym Follow-up programs do not include the one on one assessment, or the membership to the UC Fitness Centre.
