Greetings to all that is Looking for a new Gym & Trainers. Vaughan’s Fitness Is one of the Most amazing Experiences that I have every had and glad I have been going there for almost 2 years now. When I started out with Vaughan’s i was nervous and had anxiety as I do from starting fresh with a new trainer and I didn’t know then that well. From Day one I was welcomed into the club like a family member. All the Trainers (including Jarid the owner) both past and present have been very amazing and awesome. Being an Adult with autism and various other Mental Illness’s. They worked with me to over come them and find new coping mechanisms with my Trainer Jon. IALSO there is no pressure and no sales stuff like those other Fitness chains that shall remain nameless. You work out as must as you want or little as you want. Vaughan’s fitness will be there to help guide you on your mental, physical, ^ emotional Journey.
My wife and I highly recommend Vaughan Fitness. Hats off to Jarid – the training methods work amazingly well in conditioning and building strength. And we feel very comfortable with the environment and the team that Jarid has built. We just love our trainer (Jazmin) – she is friendly, caring and pushes us just the right amount. 11 out of 10.
I started at Vaughan’s Fitness five and a half months ago. I had never worked with a personal trainer and I had never set foot in a gym before. I was nervous and really unsure of what to expect, but I needed help working towards improving my mental health along with my overall physical health. I am so thankful that I made the choice to come to Vaughan’s. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Jazmin has been my main trainer, but I have worked with Cam and Alyssa as well. Jazmin is awesome! She has an amazing ability to know when to push me out of my comfort zone and just how far to challenge me. She is encouraging, positive and supportive during my weekly session. Every workout she creates is challenging and enjoyable and she adapts exercises so that I am able to complete workouts at home as well. I actually feel confident coming into the gym on my own now, and I look forward to my session with Jazmin every week. I would definitely recommend Vaughan’s Fitness to anyone looking to improve on their fitness goals, but especially to anyone who feels intimidated by the gym. My experience with Vaughan’s has been nothing but positive.
My experience at Vaughan’s has been nothing short of exceptional. The trainers I’ve been paired with are both knowledgable and encouraging, and most importantly, show genuine concern for my fitness goals, past injuries and overall health. Since I spend the majority of my work day sitting, I’ve been impressed how my upper and lower back issues have cleared up, and how my overall fitness level has improved such that hiking and other activities have been easier and more enjoyable.
I’ve also been impressed by the $10 drop-in Saturday circuits they offer. A great supplemental workout to the 2x/week training I’ve included in my schedule, and something I can invite friends too who are considering including weight training as a part of their weekly routine.
I’m looking forward to continuing my work with Vaughan’s and wholeheartedly recommend anyone to check it out! Hope to see you around.
If you’re like me you have been humming and hawing about doing this for a long time. You are looking at websites, getting all ready to go for it only to say to yourself “maybe later”. I have done the big gym thing before and it’s not my cup of tea, main reasons being that I can never decide what equipment I should use or exercises to do, what areas I need to focus on and most importantly how to perform every exercise properly as to not injure myself. I’m one that needs to just show up to the gym, be told what exercises I am doing and be guided through those exercises in a manner that I won’t injure myself, but also with the intent to achieve the greatest result.
I have now been a member at Vaughan’s for over a year and can’t say enough about it. First off this testimonial is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I work out three times per week and have worked with the same two trainers the entire time, Alyssa and Jazmin. I have also on occasion had the fortune of working with some of the other trainers, while mine were on holidays. Marissa, Allyshia, Julianne and Tyler have all been fabulous and a pleasure to work with.
This gym is nothing like the ‘big box chain style gyms’. There is no need to feel intimidated and there is every age and body type working out here. If however, you are looking for yoga or spin classes this is not the gym for you. You get to know everyone from the trainers along with many of the other members. It is without a doubt something I look forward to doing each and every time and that’s something I never thought I would hear myself say as I have always hated the gym
Jarid Vaughn has created an incredible environment here and joining his gym is one of the best things I have ever done. I turned 50 when I first joined and I while I eat fairly well, I was a bit heavier than I wanted to be, had aches and pains here and there and just generally wanted to feel healthier and feel better about myself. I have achieved all that and then some. I never have to weigh myself because I can see the changes. I can easily say that I am in the best physical shape of my life and while I may still have the odd ache and pain (I am over 50 after all), so many of the other issues I was having for years have all disappeared.
My wife has now joined Vaughan’s one day per week and she too is really enjoying it. If you are hesitating on whether or not to join, I hope I have at least convinced you to contact Jarid and set up a consultation. Then you can stop doing your endless research on the internet and making excuses.
My husband and I wanted to start going to the gym about a year ago and I am very happy we chose Vaughn’s Fitness. The staff are very well trained, friendly and accommodating. Thanks to Jarid and the staff, we had a good year and will be continuing.
If you have any sort of fitness goals, go to Vaughan’s Fitness. The first time I trained with Vaughan’s I needed to get core strength to fix a back injury, and the second time was to tone up and develop over all body strength. I had very noticeable results after only a couple weeks of training and stayed training for 6+ months because I got so much out of it. My back pain has never returned and am now in great shape. The team at Vaughan’s are very knowledgeable and skilled.I learned so much about effective exercises with proper form. The sessions are tailored to your personal goals and are broken up between various types of exercises which makes each session new, interesting, and enjoyable. I cannot recommend Vaughan’s enough. They are awesome and I am so grateful for them.
Vaughan’s fitness is professional, knowledgeable and friendly. The team there is amazing, and the training is the best I’ve had. I am very happy with the results and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a gym!
I’ve been coming to VF for just under 2 years. I do a lot of active, bike and hike, travel and my sessions here ensure that I’m able to enjoy my trips to the fullest. The trainers are all so knowledgeable, and it’s always such a friendly and welcoming place to work out! I miss it when I’m away.
I started training with Jarid because of his background in elite athletics, and his experience and expertise in this field have proved to be invaluable to my training. Jarid creates strength and conditioning programs that are carefully tailored to meet my athletic goals, but also makes minor adjustments during our one-on-one sessions to take into account how I am feeling on that specific day. The motivation and direction provided by Jarid have helped me to run internationally ranking times as well as remain injury-free while competing year-round in indoor track, outdoor track, and cross country. The atmosphere at Vaughan’s Fitness is always positive and it is a pleasure to work with Jarid and the other trainers here.
Jarid was a huge help in me achieving my goal of making the Canadian National basketball team and getting an NCAA scholarship for Basketball. My strength, fitness, and mobility improved drastically and I am continuing to work with him in preparation for NCAA Division I Basketball at Gonzaga University. He is very organized in his planning of my workouts and is attentive to proper form for each exercise. I look forward to training with him each week. He is a great trainer for an aspiring athlete. – Louise Forsythe.
Making it to the next level in sports requires significant sacrifice AND a great support team. Jarid and his staff were instrumental in supporting me in improving fitness, flexibility, and strength; both physical AND mental strength. They educated me as to proper stretching, muscles and how they work, including the mental side of overcoming diversity. Jarid also worked directly with me on gaining the best results from “Combines Testing” allowing me to produce the results I needed to achieve my short term goals. Working with Jarid and his team was a great decision, one which I recommend to any athlete wanting to reach their goals **
Before finding Jarid, I tried out several trainers. When I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I bought a home gym.
After a couple years, the equipment was still looking pretty new, I came across Jarid’s website.
At my consultation, Jarid’s vast knowledge and passion for fitness was such a pleasure to see! I signed up, and listed my fitness equipment for sale when I got home.
Jarid’s attitude toward fitness is motivating. He brings a lot of value to his clients with his experience, enthusiasm, and approachable personality. His patience, positive reinforcement and gentle encouragement made my goals attainable.
The quote from Warren Buffett, “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get” describes Jarid’s approach to training.
Thanks Jarid, I’m glad I found you**
I had pretty basic goals that I wanted to achieve when I started training with Sam. I have always enjoyed exercising but I wanted to improve my strength and do cross training that would benefit my cycling performance. I had reached a plateau and needed help taking things to the next level. Sam created fun workouts that focussed on strength, stability and balance- teaching me practical exercises and how to lift weight safely and effectively. I have learned so much from Sam and she always pushes me to do my best. Instead of starting somewhere she knows I’m comfortable; she will challenge my abilities and I often end up accomplishing something a lot tougher than I would have gotten into if I worked out on my own. I completed my first Gran Fondo in Whistler last September and training with Sam made me confident I was ready and strong enough to race. The VF team are extremely knowledgeable and I’d highly recommend working with them to anyone who’s looking to achieve any kind fitness goal**
Sam is a great trainer and kinesiologist. Sam played a vital role in my recovery after a motor vehicle accident; she helped me regain my strength and overcome my injuries through skillfully planned work outs that addressed my physical deficits. Sam is great at keeping the work-out challenging and fun while being able to answer any sort of technical questions. She has a wealth of knowledge in muscle rehabilitation as well as strength training to meet whatever fitness goal you may have.**
Came into Vaughan’s fitness about a month ago looking to get into shape for summer! Being pretty active in the gym already I was looking to get the best out of my workouts for optimal weight loss and toning! The time I’ve spent training with Mel so far has been such a positive experience. I love how she really takes the time to make sure you have proper form and that she pushes me just enough. She’s given me lots of tips and exercises to try when I’m at the gym alone and she’s also showed me some exercises that have helped me with my long distance running goals.**
I have been with Jarid and Mel for just over two months now. Prior to that I was working with another trainer, I have had more success with Vaughan’s fitness in two months versus two years with others! It’s a fantastic feeling thanks Jarid and Mel**
Jarid helped me gain knowledge of how to run with technique and form, it has helped me gain range in the outfield while also running better times on the bases. I have also been able to stay injury free due to his running techniques, my form has allowed me to take stress off of muscles that I was used to having problems with. I highly recommend you take your athleticism to the next level by training with Jarid Vaughan!
The best, most qualified personal trainers that will cater to your needs**
Excellent place, knowledgeable people, I have been with them for 3 years, never been a dull moment. I recommend them for your total workout
I just moved into the area and was excited to find that there was a training facility in our nieghbour hood. Jared and his group of trainers are very professional and thorough. As a RMT I was looking for a trainer who would help with muscle balancing and functional movement. My trainer Chelsey is amazingly resourceful and informative. Love working with her. Jared also amazing, he built a program for my daughter this summer to help get her ready for her fist year in Florida playing Div 1 varsity beach volleyball. As a therapist and as a customer I would highly recommend Vaughan’s fitness**
Jarid and his team focus on the long term aspects of health and fitness… working out in a great location in a great atmosphere with a great experience and great fun every session!!! As I was telling Jarid today in my session,,,,the hour whistles by and i get so much accomplished….and feel great at the end…Thanks Jarid, Sam, Chelsi and John!**
Love this place. The trainers here at Vaughan’s are very dedicated to your health , fitness and well being. I have come to them with a significant injury and they have helped me to rehabilitate as well as progress with my fitness. You guys are amazing !**
I couldn’t recommend Vaughan’s Fitness more highly. The focus is always on you and what is right for you on that day and over the long term. I started with Jarid and his team almost a year ago and had a very frustrating – and painful – shoulder injury. No magic potions or ‘fad’ techniques, just sincere two-way communication, appropriate exercise and training, some physical massage, some ‘homework’, and I am virtually pain-free with 95% mobility in just 10 months. Each session is documented and carefully thought out so know matter who trains you, the experience is always the same. There’s an obvious caring about clients that is shown by each team member – but make no mistake, they work you hard! And the great thing is, you begin to love the hard work just as much, and before you know it, you’re in amazing shape physically and mentally!**
I’ve been going to Vaughan’s for a few months now and the results are fantastic! Jarid and all of his trainers are extremely knowledgeable, professional, friendly and helpful. They really take an interest in each clients specific goals and health. I’ve gone to other trainers in the past, who were very good, but Vaughn’s is head and shoulder’s above the rest!**
My mom and I go to Vaughan’s, and we love it! Excellent service, staff are super knowledgeable, helpful and easy to work with. They’ve been working with my mom on her injured back, and her confidence and strength has increased by leaps and bounds. Thank you for everything you do for us!**
Jarid was a huge help in me achieving my goal of making the Canadian National basketball team and getting an NCAA scholarship for Basketball. My strength, fitness, and mobility improved drastically and I am continuing to work with him in preparation for NCAA Division I Basketball at Gonzaga University. He is very organized in his planning of my workouts and is attentive to proper form for each exercise. I look forward to training with him each week. He is a great trainer for an aspiring athlete.**
I have been working out with Jarid and his team for a little over a year now. With their expertise and guidance, I am well along rehabilitating an injured knee as well as dramatically improving my overall fitness and strength. An added benefit has been the loss of about twenty five pounds. I really look forward to working out with Jarid and his team and would highly recommend them. Great people, great atmosphere and great facility.**
Excellent trainers they are all very knowledgeable about the body and do a great job matching your workout to your fitness level**
I recommend Vaughan’s Fitness to anyone that wants results! When I first met with Jarid I was looking to overcome chronic back issues. My doctors recommended working with a personal trainer to build muscle to help alleviate my back pain. My overall strength and fitness has immensely improved and I’m also happy and healthier! Thank you Jarid, Sam & Jon!**
I have been training with Vaughan’s Fitness for over two years and always enjoy coming in to such a positive and supportive environment. Every trainer on the team is friendly, helpful, and passionate about health and wellness. Working with Sam has been such a great experience; she coaches me, challenges my fitness goals and genuinely cares. Thank you to the whole team for making early morning workouts something I look forward to!**
Love Vaughan’s Fitness. I have worked with many of the trainers and they are all awesome. They all have so much knowledge and a true desire to help. I never feel judged, they are all so friendly. I look forward to every session. Try it for yourself, you will not be disappointed.**
This place is great! It’s my first time doing personal training, and before finding this gym I did a lot of research on the web. I am glad I found it– I have had the luxury of doing one-on-one personal training with all the team members, and each one of them are amazing at what they do. Despite having their own way of approaching it, in the end all of the hard work pays off! Would recommend to anyone looking to do personal training :)!**
After being in pain for over 3 years from two car accidents and trying many different things working with Sam has been amazing and I wish I had found Vaughan’s fitness sooner! She has worked with me never pushing me if I am in pain but pushing me enough that I see and feel the change in my body. With my busy schedule Sam is always very accommodating and if I am not able to train with her she will give my info to another trainer to train me so I can make sure I continue with my progress of getting better. I look forward to continuing my sessions with her till I feel 100% and beyond that. Anyone looking for a great supportive trainers I highly recommend Vaughan’s Fitness!**
The trainers at Vaughan’s Fitness are all friendly and knowledgeable. My experience with them has exceeded all of my expectations and I have recommended them to several of my friends and co-workers. I am confident with the workouts that the trainers design for me as I feel like they are tailored to my body’s needs and not a one-size fits all workout. When I have found that an exercise doesn’t feel right, they are able to adjust the workout to help relieve any discomfort. The prices are also very competitive for the service you receive and if you are considering getting a personal trainer than I recommend you visit Vaughan’s Fitness.**
Jarid Vaughan is a sports strengthening savvy and a great motivator, his support was crucial in my preparation en route to the Olympics. Working with him was vital for improving my strength condition and learning practical exercises that consequently improved my skills in the gym as well as on the track.**
