Our Classes


ValitusFit is:

  • an approach that combines all elements necessary to build functional fitness:  strength, endurance, agility. When we refer to “functional fitness” we mean fitness that helps you in your day-to-day life…lifting children & less-animated objects, maintaining good posture as you work and move around, feeling energetic and supple throughout the day.  We don’t just mean the type of fitness that makes bathing suit shopping a less stressful experience, though that’s certainly a positive side-effect that you’d also enjoy.
  • varied, so that boredom doesn’t set in (for your muscles or your brain) and lead you to skip predictable, repetitive workouts.
  • efficient: workouts consist of a series of warm-up exercises, some training on the specific skills required to do the workout that’s on deck that day (e.g., proper form for a push-up, or a deadlift, or wall-balls, etc…..there’s some terminology that we use but nothing that you need to be intimidated by, ANYBODY can do this stuff, seriously), then the workout itself, and then a brief cool-down.  Depending on the day, the main workout may last from 10 mins to 30 mins.  From start to finish we’ll be done in 45-60 mins. Regardless of the duration of the main part of the workout, we promise that you’ll be sweating and breathing hard, and that each workout will help you progress towards your fitness goals.
  • a supportive community of people who are striving to improve their fitness.  We don’t compete aggressively against each other; we leave our egos at the door and support each other.  Working out with a group provides encouragement and community that you don’t find with personal training, but avoids the impersonal anonymity that you sometimes find at larger, more traditional gyms.



The Fundamentals program is a judgment-free introduction class with an emphasis on skills development and conditioning. The program starts on the first Monday of each month; and over the course of four weeks, builds on the core functional movements to ensure you have a sound and confident grasp of each before moving on. Each class focuses on 2-3 specific movements with an emphasis on safe and effective performance. Classes finish with a conditioning workout-of-the-day to use what you just learnt, and build endurance and mental toughness. Some movements you can expect to learn are:

  • Clean and Jerk
  • Snatch
  • Deadlift
  • Back Squat
  • Strict Press and Push Press
  • Box Jumps
  • Wall Balls

The Fundamentals class is held three times a week for one hour: Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you are interested in our regular ValitusFit classes, but have never done (or have minimal experience with) the barbell movements before, we ask you to complete 12 sessions of Fundamentals first. Once you have completed these sessions, you may enter into our regular classes throughout the week. For Fundamentals, all you need to bring are tennis shoes, comfortable workout clothes, and a desire to better yourself and learn new skills!
