What is YThrive? What can I expect?

YThrive is an exercise program that will help you improve your health and physical performance or help you take more control of your life and achieve results. It provides you with the support to get started, the flexibility to do it on your own, results to stay motivated, and the opportunities to connect with others just like you.

Each workout is designed to be 50-minutes in length, and every 90 days you get a new routine and a new set of results to work toward. YThrive has five streams based on your familiarity with fitness and fitness level.

BEGIN stream is for individuals looking to get started on a fitness program who have little to no experience with a formal exercise program or exercising in a fitness centre environment.

FLEX stream is for a confident exerciser looking to maximize strength and muscle gain.

BOOST stream is for an occasional or active exerciser looking to maintain a healthy weight or lifestyle.

BALANCE stream is for individuals looking to improve their overall health, increase energy levels and lead a more active lifestyle.

GROW stream is for a safe start (10-14 year old) into using the conditioning Centre. This program will give them the basic foundation in resistance training and cardio training.

How is this different than Personal Training?

The biggest difference between YThrive and personal training  is that unlike personal training, this program requires no additional cost, appointment times or locked in contract. YThrive also gives you the ability to meet with a group in a social setting, is less formal, and can be completed at your own time/schedule, whereas with personal training you work one-on-one with a trainer.

I already have my routine, and know what I am doing...why would I need YThrive?

YThrive is designed to keep you motivated and help you reach your goals faster! The 50-minute, 2-3x week program is designed by experts to fit your lifestyle and help you get the result you want. At 20 and 60 days you will be introduced to 1-2 new exercises and this is important to overcome plateaus. Plus, there is a dedicated team of fitness experts to support you with every step. 

How do I track my progress?

When you come to the orientation and take part in the program you will get a personal workout card where you will be able to track and chart your progress. It’s important to track your success, fitness level, and ensure you’re not plateauing. Not only that, but you’d be part of the YThrive group, which means you get communications about new program releases.

Do you guarantee results with this?

It’s fairly difficult to guarantee results but we can guarantee you a proven program designed by a team of experts that will provide you with the support and motivation to keep going. If you stick with the program you’ll experience faster results, better health and increase energy.

Will this make me bigger? I don't want to bulk up.

The YThrive BOOST and BALANCE streams will not make you any bigger or bulk up. Creating lean muscle mass will increase your resting metabolism, which allows you to trim inches, move better and increase your overall energy.

Is there a food program included?

There is not a food program included in this program. We do encourage anyone who has food-related questions to seek the advice and expertise of a nutritionist.
