I came to Le Physique tired, discouraged, and in chronic pain. I am now energetic, virtually pain-free, and very helpful. My kinesiologist Cat, has a huge depth of knowledge and impressive abilities to problem solve. These together with her sense of humor, encouragement and empathic nature have down wonders for me. She knows when to challenge and when to back off, so each session is unique and appropriate to that day.
She has taught me skills to promptly cope with minor injuries and how to prevent them in the first place. Despite being a physician, I have now developed a deep understanding of my body’s response to various stresses, and I have the confidence that I will maintain healthy activity in future years.

The trainers at Le Physique have helped me manage to overcome a lot of the problems I had with sciatica – and I feel that I am getting smarter and fitter in dealing with what can develop into a debilitating condition. The support and encouragement I have received from everyone on staff have been incredible. I never thought I would have so many laughs while getting fit and yet every session I have makes my day a lot brighter.
At Le Physique I have always felt 100% supported, these are good and caring people and only want to help you be the best you can be… and better. Just when I think there is no way on earth I am ever going to lift, or squeeze or jump or stay on that running machine any longer I find that I can…I CAN. That’s the best encouragement ever.

The difference has been amazing! A whole new world has opened up for me that includes running and cycling and the stress from my job seems to melt away. The joy that I remember from running when younger has returned.
The team at Le Physique has helped me become much more resilient in mind and body. There is always lots of variety and nothing gets repetitive. No longer do I plateau and not achieve any results. Having four grandchildren it’s also important for me to be active with them – sometimes I wear them out!

Nicole, I know you understand that my initial approach about joining Le Physique was painful. I felt unconfident, shy and scared about revealing my flabby body and lack of fitness to others; but from the first moment, I was made to realize my fears were normal, they were accepted and I was made to feel welcome.
I’d like to thank you and your staff, especially David Hendry for helping me maintain my focus to improve my health. As you know, after years of lower back pain and neck problems I was determined to stop procrastinating, and to do the work needed to strengthen my problem areas. After five months of working out at Le Physique, I can’t believe my determination to better myself still thrives thanks to the constant support of David.
From the start, David recognized my shyness and heard my fear. I was terrified of re-injuring my back and found it hard to push past my comfort zone. With David’s gentle approach, I soon found myself laughing and enjoying myself as my comfort zone’s borders dissolved. While working together David has explained each exercise, how it helps to strengthen different areas, and why that’s important. His explanations have educated me about understanding my body; its strengths and its weaknesses, I now recognize his explanations will be lifetime guides to pursuing a healthier body.
I am so thankful that there is a place I can go where I feel comfortable just the way I am. I have never felt out of place at Le Physique, the staff is always friendly and welcoming, plus your beautiful smile, Nicole, always helps make my day. As for you David, your ability to put me completely at ease, is something to cherish, never in my life would I have thought I’d enjoy exercising, but I do, thanks to you. Thank you for guiding me and helping me to continue reaching for a much healthier comfort zone. Cheers to each of you!
