Transforming Athletes into Monstas™

We are a team of professionals relentlessly creating unfair advantages for athletes & corporate athletes so that they are unstoppable in their pursuit of dreams.

A Strength & Conditioning Gym in North York, we developed a system called Athlete Activation System™ in which we also teach & certify strength coaches worldwide. This system maximizes and taps into athletes’ potential by activating higher threshold motor units. This system is so effective that it produces steroid-like effects.

Clance is one of the best strength coaches in Canada and definitely one of the best that I follow in regards to his training methods…

OUR GUIDING VALUES

BE REMARKABLE

We are a quality first, results-driven organization. We will never sign on a client if they can’t commit. We will always stake our reputation above profits.

Our members have a growth mindset, they are focused and are not afraid to ask questions. They are encouraged to build confidence and leadership through given opportunities to make decisions.

Our coaches start their days earlier and continue to educate themselves daily by reading, researching, and practicing the science of strength and conditioning.

WORK HARD

We understand movement is not necessarily progress. We are committed to practice daily and weekly habits to achieve a long term vision.

Our members just work. They don’t complain, they work. They know it ain’t easy, but nothing great ever is. They get back as much they they put in. Some spend hours in transit each day to train in order to achieve their dreams.

Our coaches hold themselves accountable, we track our progress weekly, we treat the facility like our homes, and you’ll never hear “This is not my job.”

SELFLESS

Our first responsibility is to our community. Our second is to our team and family. And lastly, to our shareholders. Our fulfillment is in seeing our community succeed in life, not just in sports.

Our members knows there is more than just sports. It’s also about being a good human being. They give back by educating their peers, and future generations. They are mentors, and role models.

Our coaches often work 10+ hours a day without a thank you. They set up & promote opportunities to help cultivate strong, independent, and confident individuals.

COMRADERY

We’re a community that respects the work, not talent. We want everyone to be a better version of themselves week after week.

Our members pause to cheer on someone that is going for a personal best. They leave their ego at the door, and know that the facility is a safe place to share and grow with like-minded individuals.

Our coaches give respect to those who work hard. They are always learning, and they share that learning with each other to elevate everyone’s ability. They work together to give what’s best for the member.

OUR FOUR TRAINING PRINCIPLES

TRAIN HARD

We’re a community of athletes that push each other to be better each and every day. We have fun, but we’re competitive. We cheer for each other and strive to be Monstas™.

TRAIN FREQUENTLY

Commitment will get you started, consistency will help you finish. We set you up with coaching, programming and techniques with long term views for long term successes in and out of sports.

TRAIN HEAVY

Technique & safety is paramount. Once your skill develops over time and you are able to have proper positions, you’ll earn the right to lift heavy. That’s when the magic happens.

TRAIN TO FULL ROM

Training to full range of motion is utmost importance to us. Weightlifting is the ability to display movement, strength and explosiveness in the proper full ranges of motion.

TURN YOUR DREAMS INTO REALITY
