Corefit Conditioning classes have been creating a sweat for more than 14 years in Kitchener-Waterloo.We’ve kept it quiet so we could get it right!
Corefit Conditioning, “because all good things come from the CORE!”
We are not a large gym, but we strongly believe that is one of our best qualities. We love the fact that we are able to work with our clients in class and one-on-one in a family-type atmosphere and that our workouts can be utilized by anyone aged 16-70+. But don’t let our family atmosphere give you the wrong impression! Our workouts are designed to challenge you no matter what fitness level you are at!
We offer up to 12 classes per week. Classes are full of energy and planned so that all you need to do is show up and be ready to start. Classes are 45 minutes in length and incorporate different types of equipment with the use of everything from kettlebells, dumbbells, battle ropes, bosu balls and much more.We also push you to use your own body weight in a variety of unique, challenging and fun exercises.
**NEW** We are proud to introduce Katie Ego our new onsite performance nutritionist. Katie is here to help you achieve your goals with the help of performance specific nutrition plans.
