Let’s customize an active life that you enjoy with functional strength training as your Foundation.
Exercise & personal training are certainly major components of living a high quality of life. In fact, most of the results obtained from an exercise program are the direct result of an individual’s choices and time management skills outside the personal fitness studio. Understanding one’s values and where exercise fits in to their schedule is a critical deciding factor to whether or not someone lives an active life that they enjoy.
Great nutrition gives you the mental and physical energy to WANT TO exercise consistently. Xelf holds nutrition in high regard as an essential factor to living an active life that you enjoy. We offer nutrition coaching in various forms to suit your current needs, including 1 on 1 consulting, small group programs, nutrition lectures, reading material and even in-home cooking lessons.
Founded and incorporated in 2005, Xelf has remained true to its vision of empowering people to live an active life that they enjoy. Xelf is the word ‘Flex’ spelt backwards because the only lasting results come from within. As exercise coaches, we aim to not only provide our members with temporary motivation, but also to create internal motivation and independence within them. Xelf has recently moved to a new beautiful location on 1 West Ave S as of January 2015.
