From Our Clients
I have been a customer of Body & Soul since about 2013. I got there by first spending a year involved with a cardiac exercise program at Vancouver General Hospital following a procedure. It was then recommended that I continue regular exercise and I found Body & Soul at that time. I have been coming twice a week for most of the period since then so was quite upset by the closure forced on them last spring and greatly relieved when they were able to reopen in early summer. Since that time, I have been very impressed with their ability to deliver safe exercise programs with great care taken around social distancing, sterility of machines, engagement of the trainers and yet the generally pleasing and rewarding atmosphere experienced through a typical one hour session. There is a carefully limited number of people using the gym at one time, each with an expert trainer, no overlap in use of equipment and great care evident in sterilizing any surface contacted during a session. There are no more than 4 people and 4 trainers using the main floor of the facility at one time with carefully separated use of the cardio machines in a separate area. While exercising with a mask on takes some getting used to, it now is not an issue for me, although I look forward to post-vaccination loosening of that necessity. Over all, even under these trying conditions, I believe Body & Soul delivers a thoughtful and effective exercise program which I plan to continue indefinitely.
