Excellent5.0 Based on 42 reviews from review us onjason wujason wu ★★★★★ I hired John to help me with my poor posture and agonizing shoulder pain because it made every day tasks such a challenge for me. But, with his expert guidance and personalized approach, I not only found relief from the pain, but also learned how to move better than before.Not only do I have better posture, John has taught me how to engage my core properly, something I would hear but never knew how, as well as improve my overall hip mobility.Thank you John for not teaching me just exercises, thank you for empowering me to take control of my health and well-being.If you're struggling with pain, mobility, or simply want to move and feel better, come to Impulse because John and his team will help you and support you. Everyone you meet and pass by at the gym is so nice too; the community is amazing, thank you.Marc-André ChoquetteMarc-André Choquette ★★★★★ They were close by, so I decided to give it a shot after using my new parenthood as an excuse for too long. I signed up for a couple dozen individual sessions with John, and I think it was one of the best decisions. He catered to my personal goals and helped me get back in workout shape. I also joined the group classes and I love the chill atmosphere with good motivation. Highly recommend you give it a shot!Rachel DuenasRachel Duenas ★★★★★ The group class at Impulse is unlike any other group class I have experienced. I have experienced boot camp, boxing, HIIT, yoga, and CrossFit, and John & Rae's group class is the most systematic yet fun group class I have been to! They write their programs themselves and they customize their group programs to each individual that is in the class. I like how they structure their group class by offering specific body part training & styles of training each day. The community is also super supportive and fun to be around. If you're looking for a gym, come to Impulse, you won't regret it. This gym offers expert coaching and a supportive community. Come be a part of something great 🙂Mark AllanMark Allan ★★★★★ I had 2 rotator cuff surgeries about 40 years ago that weren't successful. My movements were severely restricted and painful.I could no longer play golf or weight train.A chance meeting with John and he said he could improve my mobility with deep tissue massage.Fast forward and my mobility has improved immensely.No replacement surgery necessary. I have also dropped about 13lbs.. Thanks John.Nikita BaggNikita Bagg ★★★★★ I came across Impulse when I was looking for a gym to help my dad with getting active again and reducing some pain. John and his extensive knowledge were a perfect fit! I can not thank John enough for getting my dad moving again and not only that, but also highlighting and helping me with some of my own mobility issues. Highly recommend this gym and John!Adore CalasinAdore Calasin ★★★★★ Thank you John and Rae for helping my husband and I achieve better health. They taught my husband and I valuable exercises that we can also practice at home to help with our overall health. If you want results, look no further.ROLANDO CALASINROLANDO CALASIN ★★★★★ My daughter was researching gyms so I can get help for my posture, injuries, and lose some weight. She came across Impulse and we met with John, the owner. John was able to help me achieve better posture and he helped me with my back pain, my shoulder pain as well as my knee pain and I was able to lose 15 lbs in the process. I highly recommend this gym.KiraKira ★★★★★ Cleanest gym i have been to (i have been to many), people and coaches are amazing and you feel like part of the family when you get there!! The red light therapy in the gym and upstairs area are so good!!! I am enjoying the gym time so much and i feel like i am training hard and recovering there at the same timeBrynn HallBrynn Hall ★★★★★ John has been a blessing to our family. His program and gym have been so beneficial to Keith. John is very service minded and strives to make your time as beneficial as possible. He is so knowledgeable and his team is amazing as well.Keith HallKeith Hall ★★★★★ I wish I could give a 100 star review. I have multiple cancers one being cancer in my spine which makes movement very difficult. I was at the end of my rope and made a random post about my struggles on Facebook. John reached out to me and asked me to come see if he could help me. I reluctantly went to his gym, and let me tell you that day changed my life. John started working with me to help get mobility. I have been working with him for 8 months and he has literally saved my life. He helps me to reactivate nerves to help with the pain. I haven’t had to use my walker in six months. I honestly believe John saved my life and I tell everyone to search him out as you won’t be disappointed. Him and his staff are amazing and they truly careYogesh SoodYogesh Sood ★★★★★ This gym is hidden gem! I joined this gym after many disappointing experiences with other gyms. I learned not only exercises to build strength but also learned how to take care of health, recovery, posture , avoid injuries and made great friends. The learning you get here is invaluable as it personally help me to build confidence to work with weights/machines and increasing endurance. Classes are small sized, super fun , awesome people and great atmosphere. John is brilliant trainer, coach and mentor. I would highly recommend to speak to John/visit impulse fitness if you are thinking about joining gym.Jeff ClaytonJeff Clayton ★★★★★ I can't recommend this gym enough for people. Whether you're looking to get back into shape or are rehabbing from an injury, John and Rae are the best at what they do. Having trained personally with both of them, they helped me regain confidence to get back to working out after tearing my rotator cuff and injuring my back. They train on how to lift and exercise safely, focusing on the long term goals and health of their clients. My form and core stability are the best they've ever been. This is what separates them from other gyms, where you are treated like a cheque book. John and Rae genuinely care about their clients and their care extends past your one hour session.Warren ChristieWarren Christie ★★★★★ I have to give a shout out to my amazing trainers John & Rae! Working with them has been incredible. I came in with the goal of losing weight and toning up. But, let me tell you, John & Rae have delivered on every front.Not only have I seen remarkable results in terms of shedding fat, but I can confidently say that I am in the best shape of my life entering into my 50s. Their personalized workout programs have pushed me beyond my limits and helped me achieve goals that I never thought were possible.But what truly sets John & Rae apart is their expert knowledge in injury rehab. I had been struggling with a nagging knee pain for years as well as my rotator cuff injury and low back pain I sustained from my car accident, and they helped with my healing process. It's incredible to have finally found someone who understands the intricacies of different injuries and how to incorporate exercises that promote recovery. I have medical coverage that covers massage, Physio, and chiro, and that didn't help me as much as John & Rae. They are definitely worth the investment!Brian MacdonaldBrian Macdonald ★★★★★ The results I have seen are unlike anything or anywhere I’ve experienced before. The energy and vibe in these classes are so much fun. The coaches are charismatic and full of enthusiasm which immediately sets the tone for a fun and engaging workout.But what sets these group classes apart is the knowledge behind these workouts. Unlike other gym classes where you mindlessly follow a routine, these classes incorporates exercises that are designed to improve everyday movements. I have tried other gym classes locally and I can honestly say that after a few weeks, I have noticed a significant improvement in my overall strength and mobility. It’s amazing to see how these functional movements translate into real-life activities outside the gym.Another aspect I enjoy is the community among the participants. We’re all in this together, supporting and encouraging one another.I really appreciate the fact that John & Rae program every workout they offer, they put themselves through their own workouts before they give them to us, so you know you’re getting a good workout in no matter what.John & Rae both do an exceptional job at explaining how to move as well as fixing form. That is a big one for me. They not only taught me how to move, but engage my core properly. Something I didn’t know how to do in the past and it has helped relieved my back pain!Be prepared for instant energy, a strong sense of accomplishment, and results that will make you wonder why you didn’t come here sooner. Trust me, you won’t regret it! Thank you John & Rae for everything!d bd b ★★★★★ Impulse Fitness has been a game-changer for my fitness journey. From the moment I walked through their doors, I knew I was in for something special. The personal trainers here are exceptionally skilled and genuinely care about their clients' success. What sets Impulse Fitness apart is the personalized attention and tailored programs. My trainer designed a plan that perfectly aligned with my goals and kept me motivated throughout my fitness journey. The support and encouragement I received were unmatched. If you're looking for a personal training gym that truly cares about your success, I can't recommend Impulse Fitness enoughJason S. LeeJason S. Lee ★★★★★ I found this gym through Facebook. John (the owner) is obviously knowledgeable but his ability to pinpoint the very specific issues (exercise technique, training, nutrition etc) that prevent progress and recovery is pure wisdom, which I've not witnessed among other trainers that I've met. He's direct, civil and will show you exactly what you need. It's a combination of knowledge, intuition and insight, patience, communication and systematic implementation within a very friendly welcoming environment. I've not experienced this much progress in all my past 24 years of using gyms all over the world.Nick and Tiffany WongNick and Tiffany Wong ★★★★★ I have been working with John (and Rae) for just over a year. I came in feeling rather defeated with ongoing pain and injuries and felt like I kept having to give up activities that I love because my body just couldnt keep up anymore (44F for reference). I feel so much stronger now and confident in what my body can still do. Beyond that, I am doing exercises I didn't think my body would ever let me do! John has built a welcoming and encouraging community at his gym. No matter what your goals are, John and Rae have the knowledge and expertise to get you their. Moreso, they genuinely care about their clients and celebrate every success with them. Thank you John and Rae!Michelle RavenMichelle Raven ★★★★★ John offers a unique combination of motivation and expertise to help you reach your fitness goals. He also knows how to deal with injuries in which he showed me how to deal with my shoulder and hamstring injury. Since training with John, I have been able to achieve a pull-up, middle splits, and not to mention, size on my rear plus all-around muscle tone. John has an amazing ability to customize workouts that are challenging yet achievable. You feel energized and motivated after every session, and the results are undeniable. I highly recommend John as a personal trainer!I also want to take this time to mention the culture of the gym as I believe being surrounded by support, encouragement, and positivity will help you stick to your goals even more. Everyone is there to better themselves and each other, and there is a strong sense of camaraderie among the members. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced athlete, you are welcomed and accepted just the same! I am happy that I found a gym community and culture that has not only improved my physical health but also my mental health and overall well-being. Overall, I highly recommend Impulse Fitness & Wellness to anyone looking to improve their health and fitness level while also connecting with like-minded individuals who share their passion for wellness.SamSam ★★★★★ I'm extremely pleased with my fitness journey at Impulse and it's because of the awesome trainers, people and wonderful gym vibe. John and Rae have immensely helped me to improve my form in every session. Every workout is well tailored to achieve maximum gain with great attention to forms and foundation. Great place and must try if you are looking to begin your wellness journey!!!kylie brysonkylie bryson ★★★★★ I highly recommend Impulse Fitness, the community the gym has built is incredible filled with respect, support and purely wanting only the best for all there clients. John the owner and Rae are by far some of the kindest people I've had the pleasure of knowing who will do anything for there clients. Your walking to the right gym by joining Impulse fitness.D GD G ★★★★★ Love this place! John and Rae are amazing trainers! Very knowledgeable, caring and effective. I’ve made so much progress since joining and am very satisfied!Monica GillMonica Gill ★★★★★ If I could rate this place more than just 5 stars I would. This gym is equipped with exactly what you need for a successful workout or stretching session. Impulse fitness offers options of group personal training classes or private classes which makes it very versatile for clients to truly chose what is best for them. John is extremely knowledgeable, kind and helpful. I have been going to the group personal training classes for roughly 7+ months and I have seen a tremendous amount of changes with my body compared to when I have attempted working out on my own or in other group classes. I used to barely be able successfully do a hike without taking tons and tons of breaks but because of John I’m able to have the endurance needed 🙂Randy DelmonicoRandy Delmonico ★★★★★ I started working with John at Impulse fitness after suffering from a broken neck that left me bed ridden. The injury caused me a great deal of pain throughout my body. Worst of all, it caused me to suffer from peripheral neuropathy that took away most of the feeling in my legs and feet. At one point I had very little strength and balance in my entire body to a point where I could not stand and put my shirt over my head without falling. At 67 years of age, my condition was so bad that specialists and the physiotherapist told me that there was nothing they could do for me.John and his trainer at Impulse fitness were able to figure out a solution that medical specialists could not. I am now at a point where I’ve regained much of the feelings in my lower body which allows me to walk and do almost everything like I had prior to my accident. The real bonus was fixing both my shoulders that had multiple tears, in which I was told that I needed shoulder surgery for both of my shoulders. My shoulders are no longer in pain and have full range of motion. I would highly recommend the fantastic work that John and his team provides at Impulse fitness, they have given me my life back and I cannot thank them enough.js_loader
Do I Need to Work Out Every Day?

It’s not necessary to exercise every day. It’s actually better to have 1-2 days of complete rest every week. But having a scheduled rest or recovery day does not mean you should avoid being active completely on those days.

Light exercises like walking your dog or stretching and doing foam rolling can help improve blood flow and relieve tension in muscles. It is recommended to have rest days and a well-balanced recovery routine to lower the risk of injuries and ensure the longevity of your fitness routine.

How Much Weight Should I Use When Strength Training?

It is important to keep in mind that when you are strength training, your workout should be the main focus. Avoid paying attention to the amount of weight others are lifting to complete their workouts.

Better gauge your workout intensity; pay attention to how hard you feel you’re working on a scale of 1 to 10. For strength training, aim for a perceived exertion of 7 to 9, meaning each repetition should feel difficult, and the last sets and reps should be especially challenging. If you finish a workout without feeling challenged, it’s probably time to increase your weight during your next session.

How Often Should I Rest?

To clarify, the amount of rest you need depends on your workout schedule. As I mentioned before, I suggest having one or two full rest days scheduled. This not only allows your body to recover from exercise but can also be beneficial for your mental health by providing an opportunity for self-care.

What Can I Do About Muscle Soreness?

In optimal recovery from muscle soreness, a few factors must be considered. Firstly, ensure that your nutrition is on point by eating foods that will fuel your body and workouts, giving your muscles the necessary nutrients for recovery. Adequate rest and sleep are also crucial in aiding your recovery, as full rest allows your muscles the time they need to repair.

How Long Does It Take to See Results?

It may take about 6-8 weeks or longer to notice any changes in your body through the program. It is understandable to feel discouraged because we are used to getting fast results. Despite not seeing the changes on the scale right away, do not lose hope, as your effort is making a significant positive difference.

To keep track of your progress, you can try measuring the fit of your clothing, attempting more difficult or lengthier workouts, or taking photos and comparing them later. Celebrate the small victories as they arise and use them to motivate yourself to keep going. Remember to pay attention to your body and all the subtle changes you notice over time.

What’s the Best Diet for My Fitness Goals?

In order to succeed in your new routine, your diet is crucial. No matter what your goals are, it is important to provide your body with the necessary fuel and energy to power through and recover from your workouts. With so many diets available, the choice ultimately comes down to personal preference.

Advice is to prioritize eating more whole foods in your diet. It can positively impact your workout performance since the nutrients you consume affect your body. Eating fresh foods with high-quality content can make a difference, so try to incorporate them into your meals as much as possible.
