Who We Are
Here at VitalFit, we are big proponents of Balanced Training. Most people when they first start their fitness journey, they are intimidated by strength training. It’s not uncommon to hear, “But, I don’t want to bulk up too much”. With this misconception in mind, people often flock to the cardio machines. Don’t get us wrong, cardio certainly has its place in your fitness routine, but so does strength training!
Our trainers at VitalFit use a combination of strength building techniques and Red Zone Cardio training in all our sessions to strengthen that heart and body! This combo allows for a greater exhaustion of your muscle tissues, which in turn, allows you to build muscle faster. It also increases the metabolic capacity of your muscles when you train to fatigue.
VitalFit is the only carrier of Med-X Equipment in the Ottawa area. Med-X is a specialized brand of equipment targeted towards therapy for those people who have suffered injury and need to strengthen a few muscles groups as a result. This means that with supervision and the proper equipment, there is less chance of injury and a thoroughly powerful workout can be achieved. It also means that this type of workout is good for people of ages and fitness levels. Even if you haven’t suffered an injury, our specialized equipment really isolates muscle groups so you and your trainer can achieve the results you are looking for.
