Passion with a purpose
Gravity is a passion project. We opened this health and fitness facility in April 2019 to offer an alternative to the North American big box gym and the ubiquitous Bootcamp or HIIT Circuit offerings that promise lots but never deliver. We wanted to offer a much better alternative to selectorized machines and row upon row of treadmills or elypticals. Lots to say about those facilities but in short, ask yourself what high-end university or professional sport team facilities look like - its not that! And for good reason.
Inversions with my dauther - as you do!
Outside of career, I've always been a "lifstyle athlete" - Provincial champion level in several pursuits. In my forties, I suffered my only but significant injury - meniscus and ACL. Surgery and 9 months of intense rehab saw me back to 99.9%. But that journey led me to take deep interest in the body, biomechanics, energy systems, injury management, mobility, muscular strength and more. Having educated myself and cross checked my knowledge with various professional bodies along the way, I started to notice a disconnect between correct form movement and local sport team coaching. I also met an inordinate amount of people with injury and various health issues. Accordingly a whole new perspecitve emerged.
Gravity exists to help people in need - either due to injury or just being out of shape - in addition to perfomance athlete and team training. Our goals include helping people believe in themselves again and building a community that helps and supports each other through various health and fitness journeys. We also work with Physiotherapists, Fascial Stretch Therapists, Physiologists and more to help people get back on their feet following set backs.
