Totum has been providing downtown Toronto’s best personal training services for over 20 years. We differentiate ourselves through our dedication to professionalism, service and client-specific training knowledge. We choose to be leaders by setting standards, not following them. Our team of personal trainers collectively has hundreds of years of experience. As a group, we possess doctorates, master’s degrees, and the most advanced certifications our industry has available, with a background working in professional sports. All of this exists within a collaborative, team-oriented and positive environment designed around you, the client.
Our goal with each personal training client is to help define clear objectives so that success can be measured and achieved. Totum has defined a structure called our Personal Training Protocol (PTP) to ensure programming is working towards something, allowing clients to clearly see how the work they are doing is giving them the results they desire.
1. Initial Functional or Comprehensive Assessment (new clients)
2. Consultation and goal-setting session with an individually selected trainer
3. Exercise-specific assessment depending on the goals of the client
4. Development and execution of a training plan
5. Re-testing as the plan moves forward in order to track progress and results
All of the results of the initial test will be captured by your personal trainer. We believe this really is one of the best, if not the best, value propositions related to fitness and wellness in Canada.
Each client who begins personal training with us will benefit from one of our two assessments:
Along with some baseline measures of fitness — such as strength, mobility, and cardiovascular health — your initial assessment will develop an understanding of how your body moves, and if there are imbalances that need to be addressed. This is the quality of how your movement patterns; without a clear understanding of where your imbalances lie, you are at risk of developing an injury if you participate in an exercise that does not work for your current status. Reducing these imbalances through a proper approach to your training will keep injury risk low, and the quality of your training high.
Our Comprehensive Assessment includes the Functional Assessment described above, as well as a body composition analysis, and a nutritional assessment. If weight loss or body transformation is part of your reason for starting with a personal trainer, these two additional assessments are essential to do it right, and have complete success.
We are proud to say that our team of personal trainers is the best in Toronto. The great thing about the individuals in our group is that they all have passions that take them in unique directions as they specialize in different areas throughout their careers. This allows us to provide a wide variety of exceptional services under one roof.
