Though we train clients of all ages and fitness levels, we specialize in working with adults 50+ and those with special or unique needs (chronic pain or illness, injury rehab, etc.).
Our workouts are fully customized, highly effective and – most importantly – safe. They’re also fun (most of the time!) and super rewarding.
While it’s common to begin seeing – and feeling – results shortly after you start working with us, we aren’t a great choice if you’re seeking a quick fix or superficial results. We see ourselves as your partner in health – and are here to guide you through the (awesome) process of create a strong, balanced and functional body for the long-term.
We invite you to read on below for our packages and pricing and a detailed overview of how all this works. If we had you at hello, please feel free to click here to schedule your complimentary consultation and first workout.
NOTE: WE ARE SLOWLY RAMPING BACK UP FOR IN-HOME TRAINING, WITH A FOCUS ON OUTDOOR WORKOUTS FOR NOW. WE ALSO CONTINUE TO OFFER VIRTUAL PERSONAL TRAINING.
Exercise is excellent stress relief. Which makes it pretty important right now.
We’re here to help you get your workouts in during this unprecedented time through virtual personal training.
We’ve taken our 15 years of experience delivering premium in-home training and taken it all online – so that we can provide the exercise, connection and stress-relief you need during this unprecedented and stressful time.
Please note, in response to prevent the spread of COVID-19 we are providing only Virtual Personal Training.

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 works and what you can expect:
One of our managers (Poul, Andre or Audrey) will meet with you Virtually. We’ll ask you some questions, guide you through a physical assessment, and discuss both your goals and your options. If you’re a ‘yes’ right away, we’ll set you up with one of our fantastic trainers.
One of our managers (Poul, Andre or Audrey) will meet with you in person, at your location. We’ll ask you some questions, do a physical assessment, and discuss both your goals and your options as it relates to service level and pricing/packages. If you’re a ‘yes’ right away, we’ll get you to fill out some onboarding forms at that time – and then set you up with one of our fantastic trainers. (There is absolutely no pressure to decide anything at this meeting, however!)
You'll start working with your trainer, but that's not the last you'll hear from our team of managers. Behind the scenes we collaborate closely with our trainers to ensure you’re on-track, making progress and avoiding plateaus. We’ll keep in touch with you to make sure you're happy and comfortable. And we are always reachable for questions, comments, or concerns.
Most clients are re-assessed on a quarterly basis. When the time comes, a manager will check in with you and guide you to measure your progress, and - no doubt - celebrate the results. During this virtual meeting, you'll revisit your goals and perhaps set new ones, and the cycle begins again.
Most clients will be re-assessed on a quarterly basis (Platinum Plus clients will have the option of more frequent re-assessments and Express clients are assessed annually). When the time comes, a manager will attend one of your sessions with your trainer (after arranging it with you first), to measure your progress, and - no doubt - celebrate the results. At this meeting, you'll revisit your goals and perhaps set new ones, and the cycle begins again.
Life is busy – but fitness is SO important. In-home personal training saves you the hassle and (potentially wasted) expense of a gym. We bring everything we need to put you through an efficient, highly-effective and – most importantly – safe workout in the comfort and convenience of your home.
We will keep you motivated, on-track and accountable – all you have to do is open your door and let us in.
This is the beauty of in-home training… the answer is anywhere. We will come to the place that makes the most sense to you, whether that’s your home, office, condo gym, or even a local park (weather permitting). It doesn’t matter if you have a full gym or nothing but and exercise mat. All we need in order to give you a top notch workout is your commitment and a 6’x6′ area.
We also train a small handful of clients out of our private training studio in Leaside. Please contact us if you’re interested in this option.
We train clients seven days a week, from the crack of dawn into the evening hours.
Nope! All you need is a 6’ x 6’ space – we’ll bring everything else we need to put you through a great workout, each and every time. That said, if you do have equipment, we’ll absolutely make use of it!
Generally speaking each client has a primary trainer. Some – especially those who train often – also have a secondary trainer. You may also work with another member of our team if your trainer is ill or away, but you will always be notified (and given the option to simply skip the session if you prefer).
Absolutely – and it would be our pleasure. We will start slowly and gently with the goal of establishing a strong and safe foundation upon which to build strength and endurance. We will make sure that everything you attempt is safe and appropriate for the level you’re at, every step of the way.
In response to prevent the spread of COVID-19 we are providing only Virtual Personal Training.
Fortunately this solution has enabled our clients to continue exercising live and one-on-one with their trainer(s).
For many this has become a highlight to their day.
First and foremost it is the safest way to work with a personal trainer.
Secondly like a lot of people you need your workouts more than ever. And through our process your trainer will be with you live virtually to guide you through a customized plan which is efficient, effective and – most importantly – safe.
We will keep you motivated, on-track and accountable.
All you need is a small amount of space, a screen (laptop, tablet or phone) and an Internet connection – we’ll take care of the rest. And, as always, you can try us out – completely free.
Nope! All you need is a 6’ x 6’ space.
And know this – a good workout is based on effective design, not expensive exercise equipment. If you have a full gym, or nothing but an exercise mat, we can teach you how to use what you’ve got to achieve results.
We recommend you choose a place that makes the most sense to you, whether that’s your home, office, condo gym, or even a local park (weather permitting).
No two workouts will be the same. With Nielsen Fitness you don’t have to worry about being bored. Our sessions will be dynamic and fun. You will be challenged within your means and expected to work for the goals you desire.
From your first session on-wards, we will ensure you are fully satisfied with your trainer and overall experience. Nielsen Fitness has the highest hiring and trainer development standards anywhere.
And if for any reason you are not fully satisfied, we will work with you to make it right.
A word on choosing a trainer: Unfortunately, personal training is not a regulated industry (in Canada and the World). Because of this, the level of education and training can vary widely from trainer to trainer.
A good trainer will set realistic goals and design a strategy to achieve specific objectives. Your trainer should have a good network of physiotherapists, chiropractors and massage therapists to call upon. And knowledge of medications, injuries, physical and metabolic disorders is essential.
So ask a lot of questions. Check past references and education. Personality is also very important – your trainer should be a good communicator who is approachable and available to you.
If you are interested in receiving a consultation and mini-workout with one of our trainers then contact us and we can set it up.
We train clients seven days a week, from the crack of dawn into the evening hours. All time zones.

After a horrible and disheartening experience with one of the large commercial gyms, I took a co-workers recommendation to meet with Poul. He took the time to listen first – and to understand me with regards to previous exercise routines, where I was physically at this moment and where I wanted to go.
I have been working out with Nielsen fitness for two years and it’s been fantastic. After years of procrastination and unused gym memberships, I finally have a plan and approach that keeps me motivated and excited for the next session.
I had a full knee replacement a few months ago and wanted personalized advice on how to optimize my rehab and was fortunate to be connected to Nielsen Fitness. If you’re tired of being fit into a pattern or protocol of rehab and are looking for something personalized, I would highly recommend Nielsen Fitness!
Nielsen Fitness has provided me with a new fitness lease on life. My trainer had a longer-term plan that always stretched my abilities but not to the point of breaking. They fit into my weekly schedule, are flexible when rescheduling is needed and my trainer is fantastic – I highly recommend Nielsen.
Nielsen Fitness is professional and delivers exceptional results. The programs are tailored to meet our fitness goals using the equipment we have in our home. Our trainer is an absolute pleasure to train with and is so positive and motivating.
I appreciate the one on one attention of the Nielsen trainers who “get” you and don’t give you a cookie cutter program as often happens at large gyms. For anyone seeking a personalized at home workout, I would recommend Poul and his team.
