Virtual personal training AT HOME



SAFE, friendly
& convenient





… the best way to give virtual training - and us! - a try.

One of our team leaders (Poul, Andre or Audrey) will meet with you virtually atime that's convenient for you.

We'll ask you some questions, guide you through a physical assessment, discuss your goals and options and put you through a sample 20-minute workout routine.

You'll also have the chance to ask any questions you may have.

21-day habit kickstarter Package

...if we had you at hello, you can jump right into our starter package, designed to get up-to-speed, on-track and seeing results in those critical first three weeks.

It includes your choice of 6, 9 or 12 workouts - plus the extra support you need to entrench your new habit successfully for a special introductory price.

Choose from Express (40-minute sessions) or Platinum (60-minute sessions + extra perks).


You will see the pricing for the kickstarter package if you click through the link above. After you’ve completed your kickstarter (or if you decide to skip it), virtual personal training rates start at $40 per session and vary depending on the level of service you choose, how many sessions you purchase at once and how often you train. We don’t post it here simply to avoid confusion – but you will receive a full price sheet after your free first workout. No secrets or surprises!


One of the things that sets us apart from other personal training services is our unique process, which we’ve honed over the course of more than 15 years in business. Here’s an overview of how it all works: 


We see this as a critical first step - for us and for you. Whether you start with a free consult or the Kickstarter Package, we begin with a virtual assessment, mini workout and goal-setting session.
This is an opportunity for you to get to know us and ask any questions you may have and allows us to understand your starting point so we can best support you.

Virtual Personal Training
measurement and check-ins

Most clients are re-assessed on a quarterly basis - but we will determine what makes the most sense for you together. When the time comes, we'll guide you through the measurement process and - no doubt - celebrate your results! We'll also revisit your goals and perhaps set new ones, and the cycle begins again.

  • 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.

    Heather E.

  • 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.

Nope! All you need is a 6’ x 6’ space and a laptop, tablet (or phone, in a pinch).

A good workout is based on effective design, not expensive exercise equipment. Whether you have a full gym or nothing but an exercise mat, we’ll teach you how to use what you’ve got to achieve results. 

Yes! If you’re not 100% fully satisfied with your experience after three weeks we will return every dime of your investment – no questions asked. 

That’s the goal! We will match you up with one of our (excellent!) trainers based on your goals and needs and they will be your primary trainer. Sometimes you will also have a secondary trainer – for example, if you’re training multiple times per week. 

First of all, it’s important to note that we have incredibly high standards for our trainers – nobody makes the cut unless they are excellent, kind and know their stuff inside-out and backwards.

That said, if for any reason you aren’t satisfied with your trainer – or don’t feel they’re a fit for you – all you have to do is reach out to the team leader you will connect with when you first begin and we’ll make it right. No questions asked.

That’s really up to you! The Kickstarter Habit Package includes two, three or four sessions per week to get you started, depending on how hardcore you are (ha).

From there, we generally recommend a minimum of once per week and there really is no recommended maximum – if you want to see us every day we’re here for you!

We can certainly make a recommendation at your initial consultation based on your needs, goals, budget and how likely you are to work out on your own in between sessions. 

People are often skeptical about virtual training – and we get that. But it’s an incredibly convenient and effective exercise option – even if you are short on space and/or equipment. Every workout is completely customized for you and different from the last to keep things challenging and fun. 

Our clients also love the human connection and interaction of connecting live – so much better than a pre-recorded video. 

No – this is one of the best things about training. No two workouts will ever be the same. You can expect every single one to be dynamic, fun and a challenge – in the best possible way. 

Right now – in Toronto we also provide outdoor personal training. Prior to COVID-19 our focus was in-home personal training (in Toronto, Canada). When this is all over, we plan to pick up where we left off with in-home training AND continue to provide virtual training for those who prefer it (and those outside our in-home training service area).

We are in the Eastern Timezone (New York & Toronto) – and train clients seven days a week, from 5am to 11pm ET, which covers virtually any timezone globally. 


For Canadian clients, yes. For anyone outside of Canada, the same rates apply and will be billed in US dollars. 

For larger packages we do. We’ll walk you through all the options at your free consultation and first workout or – if you skip straight to the intro pack, once your sessions are almost complete.

Express sessions are 40 minutes and Platinum sessions are one hour! 

We offer two levels of service:

  1. Express offers shorter workouts at an affordable cost (but still with all the same benefits!)
  2. Platinum offers longer workouts plus some extra perks
