As SVPT fitness + athletics enters our 15th year of providing private personal training to Edmonton, we are confident saying we are the best because of the success we have had over the span of 14 years, including surviving an oversaturated fitness industry, a recession, a pandemic, and now into recovery. We have persevered because we have consistently evolved our skills, focused on our clients’ progress and ensured client experience a top priority.
With a combined 60+ years of personal training experience and coaching in our facility, we have always believed that our clients deserved the best personal training service from real education, knowledge and experience when it comes to investing in your health, fitness and wellness.
We surveyed our clients and asked what keeps them coming back, what they love about our private exclusive gym, and our certified personal trainers. So rather than telling you what we think our secrets to success are, we will tell you what actual clients say and feel about SVPT.
What keeps our clients coming back?
