Personal training


We’re so glad you found us! We’ve been working with clients since 2006 and are proud to also serve clients in Hamilton and surrounding areas on the shores of beautiful Ancaster and Stoney Creek. We’ve helped thousands of clients achieve their fitness goals and we’d love to do the same for you. 

We work with clients of all ages and fitness levels, with a specialization in adults 50+ and those with special or unique needs (chronic pain, injury rehab, etc.) We believe strongly that a strong, healthy, balanced body is the key to living well – and are here to help you safely increase and maintain your fitness so you can do the things you love (looking and feeling great!) now and into the future. 


Our flagship offering, which we’ve done for 16 years. After carefully assessing you and establishing goals and a plan to reach them, we bring everything necessary to deliver safe, fun and highly-effective workouts in the comfort of your home or condo gym.

The exact same process, results, trainers and (awesome) experience as our in-home training option, but delivered virtually via zoom. All you need is a screen (laptop or tablet), Internet connection and a small amount of space – we’ll take care of the rest!

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.
