I have been part of 4 seasons, all under Dan Giberson. Dan understood my situation and developed a program that worked for me and the other class members regardless of our different ages, fitness, and ability levels. The program has enabled me to meet targets I had not really expected to achieve, and been great fun at the same time. Dan is a great coach who can motivate and support his clients, using his wide experience as a coach and a competitor and in-depth knowledge of physiology and training techniques to get great results. His ability to match program to goals and set targets along the way is outstanding. All this ability comes with a genuine concern for the well-being of his clients and a great sense of humor. I am please to count Dan as a friend as well as a coach. Stuart – Okotoks

The management have recently,updated,most,of,the gym machines, with state of the art replacements..There are trainers available and the gym is very accessible with early morning opening. A very affordable membership to the complex allows use of the gym, swimming pool and an amazing variety of classes.
Clientele and staff are cordial and helpful, The Rec-plex facility as a whole is very clean and very well utilized by the community especially the curling rink and the hockey facilities…Good value.!!!
I signed up for a class at the gym on a whim because a friend invited me. I didn’t intend to commit. Three years ago, I started from zero and was totally intimidated. The after-work class was together with a group of people I didn’t know well. The class was hard but …. what made a difference was that Tammy modified all the exercises to my level. She designed my workouts for my fitness level. Then she monitored my progress and encouraged me.
At the beginning, I could barely breathe and had difficulty completing the exercises. I rarely finished a set of reps without needing to rest. With the camaraderie of the group and Tammy, I kept at it; the group gradually becoming good friends. Even now, each set of classes gets a bit harder but remains at a level where I can successfully complete it. I continue to go to the gym twice a week and I have seen huge improvement in my health, endurance, strength and focus. I have tried programs at other gyms in the past, but I’ve never been able to stick to a program or be able to achieve what I have achieved here at Natural High Fitness. Thanks to your commitment to me!

I am 50 years old. I have done personal training and training with a friend I regularly do the registered small group training program I enjoy the support and guidance of a trainer to organize my work outs and coach me to doing movements correctly I also enjoy the coaching toward a lifestyle that is balanced and healthy through the conversations with the trainer.
My biggest success in 2018 was the consistency with training. Even though my schedule has changed and can be erratic, working out has become a priority for me from both a physical and mental health lens. Through this consistency I have become stronger, my muscles are more balanced, my aches and pains are reduced and I feel more positive about being able to manage my stress levels.
My body shape has changed also and that feels GREAT! One word to describe Natural High for me – personalized I was uncertain about strength training and uncomfortable walking into a gym. The support from our trainer to learn and challenge our bodies to balanced strength, while also working within our body’s range of motion and pre-existing limitations, has allowed me to find confidence and push my limits.
