Live with Passion & Grit

About Vo2 Max

VO2 Max Health and Performance approaches all clients as unique individuals. Our goal is to approach everyone with an objective overview as to what will make a difference in their lives. We honour the difference in clients on a pursuit towards greater Health vs those on a pursuit towards increased Performance. Our goal is to assess and provide a great training option that will cater towards everyone’s unique needs. We don’t not believe in lumping everyone into the same category or program.




VO2 Max Health and Performance is an environment of respect, altruism and honesty. All of our coaches have a deep personal commitment to health and fitness driven by a passionate desire to impact people’s lives in a positive way.  Responsibility and accountability are at the forefront of our coaching philosophy.  Our programs have a strong foundation built on current academic analysis and our results are achieved through thoughtful, solution focused practices that are authentic, reliable and well-founded. As scientific research continues to evolve, we acknowledge that being accountable requires us to continue expanding our expertise in the fields of health, fitness, sports psychology and athletic performance. This commitment to learning allows us to perpetually improve our approach and maximize effective outcomes for our clients.

Growth Minded

A growth mindset is a prerequisite to empowered behavior and the development of resilience. As we grow we illuminate opportunities, expand our context, and experience life in new ways.  By pushing outside the bounds of comfort, we acquire new knowledge, skills and adaptations.  We believe that our most basic abilities can be progressively advanced through dedication and hardwork.  Resilience allows people to thrive during some of the most challenging times of their lives. We want to encourage more individuals to stretch themselves, to stick with their goals, especially when it’s hard because doing so yields confidence, grit and conviction.  We consider growth to be an important life-affirming experience therefore, we are committed to the growth of every member in our community.


Every action we take affects the course of our lives. The smallests shifts in our day to day decisions can determine the most meaningful outcomes. Awareness is key to successful acquisition of health or improved performance. By having mindful habit formation, avid attention to detail, conscious effort and discipline we are able to live in accordance with our values and beliefs. This creates a clear sense of meaning in our work and in the connections we make with others. We are determined to be intentional in our attitude, decisions, sleep, nutrition, training and our interactions. Everything from our initial assessments with clients to the celebration of their successes is done with profound purpose.


Grit is defined as passion and perseverance for long-term meaningful goals (Duckworth, 2016).  An individual’s propensity for grit directly correlates to the likelihood of successfully achieving anything worthwhile in life. Grit is a trait and a skill that consists of five qualities: Courage, Conscientiousness, Follow Through, Resilience and Excellence.  To thrive in life, it’s essential to dig deep and to intentionally strengthen one’s resolve amidst discomfort and uncertainty. We believe that grit is something that can be learned and practiced. Avidly cultivating grit in each individual that we work with is one of our greatest ambitions.

What Our Members Say...

I went to Vo2Max for approximately 5 years. I always enjoyed going. It is much easier to push yourself in a fun environment. Vo2 max is one of the most diverse gyms for the the classes they offer and I believe there is something for everyone there. Prices are good. Any fitness facility that does classes is going to have a larger overhead and cost more....
I have been going to VO2 for ten years. Every time I walk in I feel at home. From the owners to the trainers and administrative staff, everyone is professional and welcoming. The clientele are a cut above the rest....
I have been lifting weights for many years. I have worked out in gyms all over Canada. But there is no gym that compares to vo2 max. From day one I was welcomed with open arms and treated as an equal. As someone with my ethnic background this is something that is not too common in todays world....
Been training there for over 10 years, tons of knowledgeable staff, friendly and overall great environment for someone looking to take their fitness seriously. Every walk of life is welcomed and embraced no matter what level you start at. Truly one of a kind facility....


Group Fitness Programming
Our group training will differ from those of other facilities in that the standards that we value will be much higher in the area of movement quality.
