From Our Clients
I have been training with Body & Soul for many years. The staff and equipment have always been excellent. All areas of the facility have always been very clean at all times. Now with COVID, protocols have been enacted to ensure that all surfaces and equipment are regularly sanitized, from the doors and lockers, to all gym equipment. Masks are worn by everyone at all times. I am very cautious regarding the virus, but I feel comfortable and safe at Body & Soul.
I am very glad that I am able to continue my training after they were able to reopen in June. I highly recommend Body & Soul to others.
Owner & CEO
Angela Longstaffe was one of Body & Soul’s first clients when it opened in 1995. Her doctor had referred her to the facility to assist with pain issues and, although skeptical, she agreed to try personal training. Her experience at Body & Soul surpassed all of her expectations: not only did her pain issues become manageable, she also received the support she needed to start improving her general health and fitness.
Angela soon saw that Body & Soul was a vibrant business with the potential to help many other people like herself; and she wanted to be a part of it. She became a silent partner in 1998 and three years later became involved in the daily management of the business. She became Body & Soul’s sole owner in 2003 and, with the exception of an unsuccessful attempt at retirement in 2011 (she couldn’t stay away), she continues to actively manage the business today.
As an adolescent, Angela was a champion ring tennis player, loved handball and worked as a lifeguard. She completed business studies in her native Germany, then worked in the European hotel industry before returning to Germany to work for several large international companies. She completed her law degree at night school just before coming to Canada..
