We’ve been training clients in Toronto since 2006 and we’re pretty excited to now be serving our friends down the QEW in Hamilton also!

Since starting with Nielsen Fitness three years ago, I’ve lost 25 pounds of fat, gained lean muscle, and am now in the best shape of my life. Having routines that are varied and challenging keep it fresh, and the quarterly assessments provide proof of progress.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without Poul and the team at Nielsen Fitness. If you’re looking for honesty, integrity and a long-term partner with your physical health, give them a call.

I started with Nielsen Fitness a few years ago, wanting to work on balance, flexibility and strength after hitting the big ‘5-0’. As a busy professional and have never found time for the gym, but the formula at Nielsen is fantastic, combining the convenience of in-home workouts with awesome trainers.

When I first approached Nielsen Fitness, I was hesitant as I had bad experiences with other gyms and trainers before – but from the first meeting with Poul I realised I had no reason to be. He listened to my fears and asked all the right questions. Before I knew it, I was seeing changes in not only my posture, but my overall health.

We started with Nielsen Fitness seven years ago and have been happy, healthier customers ever since. Our strength and fitness level has improved tremendously. We highly recommend the service to anyone looking to improve their general well-being or trying to meet specific fitness targets.

About Us

Nielsen Fitness was one of the first in-home personal training companies to set up shop in Toronto back in 2006. Since then we’ve built a community of thousands of happy clients, expanded both our offerings and locations, and honed in on supporting adults 50+ and those with special or unique needs (though we welcome clients of all ages and fitness levels!)

We consider ourselves incredibly lucky to spend our days helping people live longer, healthier, fuller lives through physical fitness – and we’d be delighted to do the same for you.
