T-Squared Personal Training - 1st Session is Free (4 additional sessions for $99)
Your fitness goals are as unique as your body. At T-Squared Vancouver Personal Training, you can expect to exceed your goals with the workouts and personalized attention you won't get anywhere else... And that’s not the only thing you won’t find elsewhere. In addition to affordable 1-on-1 training and small group fitness classes, T-Squared offers Gravity Training, a fun, low impact, high-intensity full-body workout, that will have your body working muscles you never even knew existed (so said our colleague who tried it last week). GRAVITY produces visibly quick results because GTS® forces all of the five components of fitness into one gymnastics like a workout. Nearly every exercise recruits the stabilizer muscles of the full-body, working several muscle groups at the same time, which decreases the time it takes to fatigue the muscles, making the workout more efficient and effective while leaving you feeling energized. If you’re big on goals and short on time, T-Squared could be the full-body solution that will make 2020 your best year yet.
