Here is my honest testimony: Through THT, I found Petr Volek. I could also say that Petr found me. He was my first contact for my evaluation, and he asked if I wanted him as my trainer. Honestly, my first thought was: "What can a 60-ish y-old guy bring to my routine?" but his personality sold me, and I told myself that this was probably the change that I need. As it happens, he brought a hell of a lot! His experience and his energy is amazing. Petr kicks my butt when I need it. Petr never makes me feel dumb when I have questions or simply when my body and mind coordination are out-of-whack! He showed me a new way of training! Never monotone, always changing! He's attentive and he cares. When I want to change an appointment, the way he asks: "Why?" just proves that I have to have accountability to someone with the decisions I take with my health. After 3 months with him, my body has changed! I already have average good eating habits, but I am looking into getting tone and not losing weight. Petr understands that. No jugement. Petr is present with you, and he listens. If THT has trainers that have all the same qualities enumerated in this text for Petr, THT is a good institution! Yes, it can be pricey, but can you put a price on good mental and physical health? No. Thank you Petr!

I have been training with Petr for a few weeks now he is absolutely the best trainer I've ever worked with. He is professional, funny, kind and excellent at what he does. I was in a low place mentally. I'm from the UK and was on lock down on my own in Montreal. I'd gained weight and needed help to get back on track. Petr saved me! he is superb and i can't recommend im enough- Thank you Petr 🙂

My husband and I started training twice a week with Gary last September. Both of us were not very active and it was also the first time that we had a trainer. Thankfully, we were put at ease from day 1 and the exercises designed by Gary were well within our capabilities. Since then, he has gradually increased the intensity and difficulty of our routines as we gained strength and confidence. When we expressed concern about certain exercises, Gary provided alternatives that were better suited for us. We think that we have both gained muscular strength and feel more energetic since our exercise sessions. We also appreciate Gary’s punctuality; our sessions are at 6.30 am and he has always been on time and never missed a session. Since the pandemic, we have continued our sessions on WhatsApp and we were pleased that these online sessions were equally effective.

I have been a client of THT Saint Lambert for a couple of years now and have been very satisfied with their services. Obviously, the closure of the Gym also put my exercise schedule on hold, until I was approached for a trial of a virtual training session. A bit apprehensive in the beginning, I quickly started to realize that training at home with a good trainer is as effective as training in the gym, despite the lack of equipment. I have been training now for the past seven weeks with Ines Rivas and I have been really enjoying it. The sessions are very well balanced between cardio, strength and flexibility and I have noticed a considerable improvement in my overall physical condition. Ines has been quite inventive in making sure that there is a lot of diversity in the exercise program. There is always something new or different and it definitely keeps me motivated. I highly recommend anyone to consider this new way of training. I also highly recommend Ines Rivas as a great personal trainer.

Hi Sam! I hope this email finds you well. I just wanted to thank you once again for being such a great instructor, your teaching method is to be applauded (not to mention your patience!) You have inspired me to reach for yet another goal – to become a home trainer. I love the idea and I will be signing up for your home training course in April. I have also discovered that at my age I have to be realistic about how long I can actually work as a personal fitness trainer… once again you made me realize that I CAN stay in the fitness industry for many years to come because I can then go to the next level which would be to teach others how to become personal fitness trainers. Thanks again for your inspiration! 🙂

I would recommend this company to anyone who wants results.

After my Total Knee Replacement, I needed to continue my physiotherapy. The CLSC program from the hospital was only 5 weeks. I heard the advertisement on the radio for THT. I immediately called and left a message. I was called back that very day and was so impressed with the interest and desire to fill my needs with my rehabilitation. Sam did the introduction class with me and knew just how to tailor my needs and his expertise in making a good fulfilling program for me. He matched me up with Tessa, an excellent fun loving trainer. My progress within the 20 weeks was outstanding.. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants results. They treated me with respect, were on time with appointments > Just an overall 100% great experience. Thanks so much .. Sam, Christine and Tessa xo Emily Wetmore.

Marc was always on the ball and his unwavering support and commitment to his clients gave me the confidence I was lacking

I just had to write a comment about what a great experience it has been training with such a professional like Marc and THT. I had been wanting for a very long time to adopt a healthier lifestyle and with two unused gym memberships under my belt and a clothes-hanger/elliptical machine at home I was feeling pretty defeated. I took what little courage I had left and as much will power I could muster to call THT and get a trainer. I am so thankful of Christine’s quick and friendly response to my call, Sam’s well informed and thorough assessment which conveyed a genuine desire to help, and ultimately to Marc’s knowledge, professionalism and enthusiasm throughout our training sessions. Marc was always on the ball and his unwavering support and commitment to his clients gave me the confidence I was lacking and enabled me to finally achieve my goal. Thanks!!!

My fitness instructor Marie-Anne is a Godsend

I moved to Montreal in March of this year (2013) from Ireland and was used to my home fitness regime back home. I put on a lot if weight due to the stress of moving and being out of my comfort zone. I felt really down and needed a boost.

I found THT online from a google search and called up Christine who sent Sam out to assess my fitness. He started me on training sessions in the comfort of my own home and I haven’t looked back since! My weight loss has been dramatic, I’m fitting into my old clothes again and I feel amazing and toned.

My fitness instructed Marie-Anne is a godsend, I am going to miss her greatly! Thanks, guys, you’ve been amazing! 🙂 I’ll be in touch in the new year 🙂

My experience with THT

For 2 years I had treatments from physiotherapists, acupuncture, water walking, physiatrist, spinal injection of cortisone and finally a long spell with a chiropractor. All this to ease the pain in my leg from the sciatic nerve and disc problems. I thought I had covered all the avenues that might help me until I heard of home trainers. The internet found you and now I am so much better from the training given by Margaret Britton. She is jolly, inventive and effectual. I no longer require a walker and can walk longer distances without pain. This has been my experience with THT. Thank you

After many years of not going to the gym for fear of getting hurt, I decided at nearly 60 yrs young it was time to think about my well-being and physical condition.

Wonderful experience with Nick

I have been training with Nick since mid-August and it has been a fabulous experience. Nick is dedicated to making the work-out challenging, interesting, dynamic and most of all fun. He is encouraging, supportive and makes you want to get up before the sun to work out! The sessions are never the same and that keeps it interesting, Nick always has something new to throw at you (it was once literally a 20lb ball that he threw at me!) and that keeps me interested and focused. I feel better, I have more energy and I am starting to see results and others are too! Great job Nick! Recommend!
