Our Training

Our Boot Camp programs are geared toward bridging the gap between fun and incredible results. Each class is uniquely programmed to feel challenging but different, coupled with team work (in our group class) or personal drive (in a Drop-in Boot Camp class). Moving and thinking like a soldier will prepare you for racing and sports so you can beat your last best self and conquer some of your personal obstacles (or in a Spartan Race, an actual obstacle!).

Do you want to be faster, stronger, and more functional? Do you want to be the badass in your neighbourhood? We'll help you get there. The only requirement is that you are willing to work for it. We tailor workouts for all fitness levels so everyone is welcome, but arrive prepared to do your best.

Our groups are stronger, happier and more confident every day. They love our training so much they stick around for years. Our personal training clients get such incredible results they don't want to stop training with us, even after they reach their goals. 

And we -guarantee- your satisfaction in a month or you get your money back (see below).

What do you have to lose besides a few lbs? And you have everything to gain.

Our Facilities

Outdoors: Training outdoors will connect you with nature and inspire you to be outside more often. Our programming includes challenging missions based on team work and war stories.

Indoors: Training indoors (available at 1000 Brookfield Road Room 20) offers a wide range of training from individual drop-in Boot Camp 30-minute classes to Group Boot Camp based on members working together to accomplish class objectives. Family Boot Camp programming is available to teach kids how to grow up mentally strong, eat well, build motor skills, work with others and stay fit and healthy - and parents can work out with them too!

Through the power of our community, the high-fives, the motivation, the comaraderie, don't be surprised if you find yourself taking part in a 5km mud race, doing paintball or throwing axes on the weekend.

The Extra's

Not only do we focus on the physical side of fitness, but we give attention to the psychological. As you gain confidence in yourself and realize your own thoughts limit your potential and cause you pain, you will break free of your inner voice and become stronger than ever before. You can become unshakeable and we have the tools to get you there, if you choose to implement them.

Every weekday we send out an e-mail exclusively to members with a motivational thought of the day, and fitness, nutrition and mobility challenges that we hope you will complete if you didn't make it to the class. These challenges can be done at home or in your hotel room while you are travelling. They often only take 10 - 15 minutes to complete but sometimes we add in full workouts.

"If you aren't growing, you're dying." Tony Robbins - You should always have goals and methods of reaching them - fitness, nutrition and overall wellness is a lifelong accomplishment. Our coaches have made it their life's work to help people and we are very passionate about finding the best and most effective methods available. Our specialty is obstacle course racing and we are working hard to raise our knowledge of dragon boating.

As a little perk we have a free towel service, complimentary coffee (donations can be made and are given to local charities), protein shakes and energy balls are available for purchase, natural skin care products are available for purchase at better than market prices to reduce signs of aging and keep your skin healthy and vital.

Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee

If you purchase a package and don't feel you've received more value with us than anywhere else within the first 30 days, we'll give you your money back. Why are we giving you so many days? All of our classes are different and you won't understand the value in our methods after only a single class. With 30 days of classes we are so confident you will see the value and love what you're doing that if you aren't satisfied, you will get a full refund. You have nothing to lose.

Free 20 minute Goal Strategy Session

It's free and it's for you - no strings attached. By phone or in person, you can book in for a goal strategy session (fitness, nutrition or life goal) and we'll give you free strategies to reach your goal ($60 value). You don't have to buy classes first. You don't have to commit to anything. If you don't like what you hear, you've lost nothing.

During this session we will talk about where you want to be, where you are now, and how we get you from A to B using the best and safest methods available.

If your goal is beyond our expertise, we'll send you to someone who can help.

Meet the Owner

Hello, I'm Mark Nadon and I own Soldiers of Fitness. With my family (2 great boys and a wonderful wife) I know how vital family is and how important it is for you to have flexibility and get your family involved in fitness. That's why I designed Soldiers of Fitness over 10 years ago to focus on creating a stronger community. When you attend my classes you become a member of our family and it's my goal to make sure you feel like you're being treated that way. Our packages and classes are flexible for you and your family. We now have Family Boot Camp so you can train at the same time as your kids. Nobody can beat the value you get when you attend one of our programs. If you miss a class you'll hear from us - because just like family, we want to make sure you're okay. We are more than a group of people working out in a room together and after 3 classes if you don't feel that way, you can call me personally and I'll make it my mission to set things right.
