The Friendliest Gym in Halifax
We realized 8 years ago that most of us are making the process of getting in shape – whatever that means for you, much harder than it needs to be.
OnSide brings every single resource you would ever need to get in the best shape of your life to the table – all you need to do is make the first move.
Getting Started at OnSide.
OnSide is built on the idea that everyone’s journey starts somewhere different.
Traditionally, the fitness world has been trying to fit everyone into the same box – the same fitness plan for everyone.
Our model personalizes your fitness program so that it’s exactly what you need to progress without feeling too sore, getting discouraged or overwhelmed.
This is the future of fitness. And it’s working.
The first step to getting started with us is to reach out and set up a discovery session where we can find out if OnSide is the right fit to help you achieve your goals.
A Healthy Lifestyle that
integrates into your life.
There is a misconception that improving your health means that you need to drastically change your lifestyle.
While there is some truth to that, the reality is, if you need to completly overhaul your lifestyle, the chances of success are low.
Instead of asking you to fit into our mould, we help our clients integrate a healthy lifestyle into their daily lives.
Reach out and learn about how we’re changing the way people approach healthy lifestyles.
