Neighbourhood Gyms That Put Members First
Stefan Witt is a veteran of the health and fitness industry, having been in it for over 30 years. After working with large fitness chains for many years, he became dissatisfied with the direction that most fitness clubs had taken. To big, to corporate, to busy, to many unsatisfied members etc… you know the story! Success in these facilities is measured strictly by sales with little or no regard for customer service and satisfaction.
He felt that there had to be another option, one that focused on ensuring an enjoyable member experience, offering the “best of the best” equipment and service. He aimed to build the “Cheers” of fitness where everybody knows your name, but without the beer. A place where people can relax and be themselves while they get fit, a place where friendships grow in atmosphere of care and support.
Starting Something New
Locke Street Roots
Motivated by his vision of something better, and as a Locke Street resident, he decided to start with The Gym On Locke in 2009. He introduced a new style of gym that limits membership to maintain the highest standard of quality and availability. A unique neighbourhood fitness experience.
The Next Chapter
Moving On Up (to the Mountain)
With the success of the Locke Street location, he opened The Gym On Fennell in 2017, a much larger facility on a single floor, adding in new features such as a wellness centre and hydro massage beds. He partnered with Mr. Pete Relewicz, Head Trainer at The Gym on Locke since 2009, to head up the new facility as Managing Partner.
Why We're Different
Put aside everything you associate with a traditional "big box" gym. The crowded environment, the dirty equipment, the staff who try to sell you something. At our gyms, we focus on you, the member, first. Always.
