Initial Assessment & Limiting Factors
DNA personal clients start with an initial physical assessment to determine your strengths, weaknesses and imbalances. We use personal previous injury history, biomechanics testing, movement pattern screening and functional strength tests to assess you. We call this, along with your goals and timelines, your personal limiting factors. We then build your program taking into account your limiting factors as well as your initial assessment data. We work together to put a personal program in place that satisfies your needs as well as addressing areas of concern during our assessment.
Diet & Nutrition
Diet and nutrition are very personalized, therefore must be customized to each client. We start with an initial meal diary assessment and from there we make incremental changes based on limiting factors for each individual. To take this process to the next level we offer (at an additional fee) food intolerance, hormone and mineral testing to customize each personal nutrition plan specific to your needs. This eliminates uncontrolled variables and allows us to dial in nutrition at an extremely high personal level.
Our philosophy is to educate you on portion size, macronutrient content (protein, fats and carbohydrates) and what a plate should look like for your body type. We believe diet should be simple, easy to follow and sustainable long term.
Our personal clients have the ability to 100% customize; training, nutrition, goal setting and scheduling. Whether your a weekend warrior, stay at home mom, business professional, or all the above, we welcome the challenge of getting you into the best shape of your life, meeting your expectations and ultimately reaching your personal goals.

ADMIN-AT HOME BUSINESS & STAY AT HOME MOM
"I’ve been a member at DNA for over 2 years. I have tried different gyms (large and small) for years. By far, DNA has the best owner and staff of all. The classes and structure are what keep me going to 4 bootcamp classes & 1 personal training a week…it’s addicting. Classes are challenging and fun and the atmosphere is awesome! Travis has helped me and my youngest son with nutrition and his knowledge is invaluable. My 3 sons have also been members for over 2 years and I have seen great improvements in all levels of their sports. Including baseball, hockey, football, snowboarding, & golf. I wouldn’t have my sons go anywhere else. It is so important for proper instruction, especially at a young age. On top of all that, the gym is always clean and well kept. It’s a great gym with plenty to offer for every level."Chrissy Diprospero – Personal Training / Bootcamp – Burlington, Ontario

RUGBY PLAYER & BUSINESS PROFESSIONAL
"I've been personal training with Cory at DNA for 6 months now. I love the program, the intensity and the challenge that the training provides. I've seen a huge difference in my performance on the field and feel much stronger and more explosive. The workouts have increased my flexibility and I believe prevented reoccurrence of my injuries. I've started the 8 week nutrition program and am following the DNA rules that Travis has thoroughly explained. I'm surprised with how simple changes to your diet and routine can create such a big impact on your energy levels and physique. Very happy with the results thus far!"Emily Fretts – Rugby – Oakville, Ontario

DIRECTOR, PM OFFICE, HERJAVEC GROUP & SATELLITE / ONLINE CLIENT
"With work and school it is very hard for me to get to the gym, never mind get in a good workout to keep in great shape. Travis makes sure that I have a new program that is going to push me to the limit every 4 weeks and I can do it in under an hour at even a home gym. You would think that means it is easy, but nothing Travis gives me is ever easy and I leave the gym stronger each and every visit. With Travis' programs I have been able to continue being active, including playing on two soccer teams, and in amazing shape, even with my crazy schedule. If you are looking for someone who can give you basic bicep curls to do a few times a week, DNA Fitness isn't for you, but if you want to leave the gym feeling it and see results, go talk to Travis."Juliana Pinizzotto – Satellite / Online – Toronto, Ontario
