About Kim Gym

Knowlegde, Intensity, Motivation

Simply put, it is our mission to assist our clients to become the very best versions of themselves. We believe that goal is best realized with a customized approach to our clients’ health and fitness goals – regardless of age, physical limitations, weight or current fitness level. 67% of people with traditional gym memberships never use them; at an average monthly cost of $55. Most gyms are not motivated to ensure that their clients ever set foot in the gym.

Kim Gym is a personal training studio staffed by the best experts in the industry. We are former and present-day high performance athletes, who practise what we preach. From our collective experience, we believe that our clients are best served with a program that addresses their individual goals and abilities to maximize results and avoid injuries. At Kim Gym, there are no membership fees, promises of quick fixes or a generic one size fits all approach; in fact, we are so committed to our customized approach, your first training session is on us! Your success is our success.

What We Offer

The services we provide. We offer a variety of training aspects to complement the desires of all our clients.

Personal Training

Personal training is the cornerstone of our business and philosophy. People can work out in a gym for years and never attain measurable results. At Kim Gym, we believe that a personalized approach yields the best results – whether you want a program to get yourself bikini-ready, kick-start a new health and fitness regimen, or to train for a specific fitness goal.

Group Interactive Classes

Fun, energetic, dynamic and unpredictable, our classes are designed to keep your mind and body guessing! No two classes are ever the same and involve high intensity stations which may include free weights, body-weight exercises, the TRX, kettlebells, and boxing. Group classes offer an affordable alternative to personal training sessions or, better yet, are a perfect complement to your training program

Sports-Specific Training

Among our training staff, we boast former and current pro MMA fighters, football players, and an Olympic bronze medal winning boxer. We are uniquely qualified to help high performance athletes gain that competitive edge. Kim Gym is the off-season training home for a roster of clients including the national boxing champion, NHL hockey players, fitness models, inline marathon skaters and university-bound athletes.

Transitioning into coaching, he was the trainer of record for several National and World Championship boxers.
