Fitness West Introduces a New Shopping Experience for Kelowna Fitness Enthusiasts
Get ready Kelowna! Shoppers in Kelowna, Lake Country and surrounding areas can experience a fitness equipment store like no other in the Okanagan Valley.
Fitness West is, by industry standards, an incredibly unique shopping concept combining a non-intimidating and comfortable environment with a very educational and consultative approach to assisting its customers. "Fitness West is different than a typical fitness store", says Chief Operating Officer, Jason Minion. "Getting the right equipment to meet your fitness goals is more difficult than one might think. Any decision to improve your life and health is not a buying decision that can be made prudently from a catalog or big box store.
The lack of good information, selection and ability to try-before-you-buy is the number one complaint fitness enthusiasts have about shopping for home gym equipment. “With so many models to choose from, each offering something unique, our aim is to fit our clients to the right machine based on their goals, sensitivities, budget and space. When you take your new treadmill, elliptical or bike home, we want you to want to use it for years to come", says Minion.
"We're extremely excited to be offering Kelowna, West Kelowna, Vernon, Peachland, Summerland and Penticton a combination of the industry’s leading brands, and club quality equipment, all at Canada-wide guaranteed pricing, and ALL under one roof.
Our goal is to bring world-class, innovative fitness equipment to passionate users of all fitness levels in the Okanagan. Brands we'll be showcasing include:
- Life Fitness
- BH Fitness
- Concept 2
- TravelRoller …and more
Something for everyone
Health and wellness enthusiasts can also find the largest selection of fitness accessories covering a multitude of products such as yoga/pilates mats, TRX, PowerBlock, Bosu balls, resistance bands and tubes as well as rehabilitation and trigger point therapy options.
Another brand that Minion expects to be a hit is Vo3. Well known for their superior quality and product selection ranging from benches to free weights, sleds to racks, and home gyms to plyo boxes. Vo3 equipment is a coveted brand in Alberta and Ontario, and is bound to be a hit in crossfit-mad Kelowna.
Don't worry, bring the kids!
We know how hard it is to shop with kids in tow—that's why we build a fun play area!
Meet the Manager - Denise Tatton
"Know your limits and then defy them" is the mantra this Fitness West manager lives by. As a competitive bodybuilder for over eleven years, Denise knows what it takes to set high goals. Her typical pre-competition regime includes 16 weeks of two cardio workouts per day starting at 4am. plus hours of weight training.
Her favourite cardio machine is the Precor EFX Elliptical because of its natural feel and that she can build up strength and endurance at her own pace. She especially likes that it feels like you are running in mid-air and she can build up her endurance using the built-in workout accelerators.
Denise says that helping clients find the right equipment to meet their fitness goals is the satisfying part of her day. She still has a long-time client who reports in once a year to share his success—to-date he's shed 130lbs!
Personal consultations are available at the NEW Fitness West Kelowna, or grab your gym shoes and drop-in to try out a treadmill, elliptical or bike. We have fitness equipment in Kelowna for every goal and budget.
