At World Health, we understand there are a lot of fitness centers in Edmonton to choose from – and well most of them provide a suitable facility where one can go work out, they typically fail to address one or all of the three other major areas that allow people to be successful in achieving their goals.
Professional Assistance and Programs
At World Health we provide over 300 free Group Fitness classes per week at our 9 Edmonton area clubs. Classes included cover a wide array of fitness options including strength, core, cardio, spin, athletic training, yoga, pilates, Zumba and even rehabilitation. In addition, our Personal Training program is one of the largest and most comprehensive programs in Canada – some of our trainers are world-renowned experts in the training field. We strive to find affordable ways to make training available to all our members through innovative formats like one on one and small group training.
60-70% of people’s ability to achieve their fitness and wellness goals is dependent on the what they’re fueling their body with. Nutrition can be complicated. Things to be conscious about are:
1. When should you be eating
2. What the proper mix of proteins, carbs and fats to include in each meal
3. How many calories to consume each in each meal
The average person eating well spends up to 25 hours a week, shopping, prepping, cooking and cleaning their kitchen. At World Health we try to simplify this by offering our own personal chef service. You can get 3 meals and 2 snacks per day made fresh in Edmonton and available for pickup 3 times per week from any World Health location. This will fuel your body in this busy world.
The fitness industry tries to hide some very alarming facts about itself – more than 30% of all members who join regular health clubs in North America actually never attend their gym 30 days after joining. That’s why World Health provides two very important services that help keep you successful and actually coming:
The first is our Fitness Consultation Services. Each new member receives two free one hour sessions with one of our Integration Managers. These sessions are NOT a high-pressure personal training sales pitch as some people might think. They are designed to identify your goals and direct you to the programs or services that will most efficiently allow you to achieve them. At the end of the day, the goal is to provide you with a program that you can do on your own – before you’re on your own.
The second service is provided by our Regional Manager of Member Engagement. This individual exists in our clubs for 2 main reasons:
1. To track member’s attendance and reach out to members whose attendance drops off with additional service options.
2. To act as a conduit for members to lodge complaints or issues and to address these issues with the appropriate World Health resource. At the end of the day, no other club in the city can boast a dedicated resource towards ensuring your experience here is successful.
So as you can see, World Health isn’t just a fitness club like everyone else. We are the ONLY full-service health club in Edmonton.
That’s why our signup procedure is slightly different than the average fitness facility. Your first experience at a World Health will include:
Filling out a membership profile – which gives us the right information we need to custom tailor a membership that will help you be successful.
A full tour of the facility – where we use the information from the membership profile to show you the features and benefits of each aspect of the club as it relates to your personal goals.
A short meeting with our Fitness Manager where we outline what a proper fitness program would look like for you.
Showing memberships that INCLUDE both personal training AND our Fresh Fit Foods 21-day challenge.
Booking you for your first Fitness Consultation – you’ll get all the information you need to get started!
The World Health membership enrollment process is NOT a high-pressure marketing pitch – nor is it a long scripted show tell tour of the club. Our Fitness Consultants are charged with not just enrolling our members but setting them up for success going forward.
Most of all, we understand that enrolling with a gym can be an intimidating and frightening first step. We promise to do our very best to make this an amazing and welcoming experience for you.
