I was a longtime member of another gym and thought it was impossible to find another gym family. Gord and Kim welcomed me with open arms and continue to be such incredible mentors and coaches. The gym is a safe and welcoming space for everyone, regardless of fitness ability, size, etc. With a focus on functional strength (not appearance or being “skinny”) I feel like I can be myself at AYG. I love that I can ask questions whenever I am unsure of anything, and I am never made to feel silly - I always get an amazing, supportive answer that helps me learn and grow. Gord, Kim and the other trainers constantly remind us of good form and the purpose of each movement - for that “mind body” connection. I love AYG and would encourage anyone who can to join!
