Totum has been providing exceptional 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. Our team of trainers collectively have hundreds of years of experience and educational knowledge. As a group we possess Doctorates, Masters degrees, the most advanced certifications our industry has available, as well as professional sport backgrounds. All of this within a collaborative, team-oriented and positive environment designed around you, the client..
Our goal with each 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, and that clients can clearly see how the work they are doing is giving each client 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 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 starts with us will benefit from one of our two assessments:
Along with some baseline measures of fitness — such as strength, mobility and cardiovascular health — we need to understand 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 nutrition 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. Real examples of clients who have gone through this process can be read about here.
We are proud to say that our training team is exceptional. 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.
