After going to the gym and Crossfit for countless years and seeing no changes (and getting injured along the way) I finally was able to get in shape and build muscle like I've always wanted. Highly recommend Alex!

HFA is a welcoming, fun atmosphere with amazing trainers and clients. The community they've built there is awesome. I did the Booty Boot Camp with Claire for 3 months and got amazing results. Claire kept me on track, taught me proper form for weight lifting, and helped me to integrate proper nutrition into my routine. She celebrated my gains with me and I felt that she was super invested in helping me to reach my goals. I lost 12+ inches all over my body and feel stronger and leaner. I recommend the Boot Camp whether someone is just starting their workout journey or needing to revamp what they are already doing- Claire is so knowledgable and supportive. Prepare to have your butt kicked by the workout though ;) More...

When I joined HFA in Jan 2019, I had the expectation of getting fit and losing weight (I think that’s the goal for most people). What I didn’t expect was my back pain/injury to be fixed. I have multiple disc herniations in my lower back, and I was visiting the chiropractor multiple times a week, and doing spinal decompression 2x per month. I literally couldn’t stand for over a month but now, after 6 months of training, I haven’t seen the chiropractor or had spinal decompression in 3 months. My quality of life has changed immensely and if I’m being 100% honest, I never thought that would happen. I owe it all to HFA and Allen Tedjo. Allen is a miracle worker. He has been so patient, and most importantly, he understands my injury and limitations. More...

They say you can't choose your family. I disagree. They say nothing good comes easy. I disagree. They say change is hard. I disagree. When you join HFA you aren't just joining a gym, you're joining a family. When you join HFA and meet the trainer's and staff it's easy to look forward to training there.When you train at HFA, the changes in your body, mind, spirit and lifestyle will be the most amazing successes you've ever experienced. HFA is not just a gym or fitness studio. It is a home. A family. A place where everyone encourages you on your journey to finding the best version of yourself. You WILL work hard. You WILL be challenged. You WILL have fun. And you WILL be glad you joined. More...

I started my training at HFA at zero fitness level and a lack of stamina but after 4 workouts with Jad, my fitness level increased and I noticed a huge improvement with my coordination and execution. Jad’s patience, guidance with nutrition, tough love and meticulous approach to training has inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and regain the confidence and discipline to commit to a healthier lifestyle.Thanks for your encouragement Jad!!

I found this gym when I was lost, and looking for myself again. I’ve been with them 2 months and I’m already feeling like a new person, mentally and physically. The support from this team is phenomenal. A special thank you goes out to Jay, and Jad. Jad is my trainer and motivator everyday. Jay is the man I reached out to and has been supporting and encouraging since day one. The HFA team is the team you want helping you no matter your goals. More...

Working here as the next step to my training and rehabilitation career was the best move I have made in my life. I never feel like going to work is a chore. Everyone is on your TEAM. Everyone has their thing making the gym whole; mobility, strength conditioning, boxing camps, stretch therapy you name it. No toxicity, no competition, constant development from everyone looking to improve and grow.It truly is the place to be for phenomenal vibes, great results, and life-long success. Come in just to meet us, and you won't regret it. More...

The energy and trainers here are absolutely amazing!! In a short amount of time I’m the leanest I have ever been, but have also put on some solid muscle. With my initial assessment they were able to find out what my goals were, where I needed improvement in my life and also where I had pain and how to fix it. They have exceeded all my expectations and it’s actually a gym a look forward to going to every week. If you haven’t tried this gym out you have to!! You will not regret it and your body and mind will thank you!! More...

This facility has got to be the most welcoming fitness venue in the Hamilton area. The staff and clients are second to none! Never once have I walked in the door without getting greeted with either a fist pump or a smile. The minute you step in the door you immediately feel like a part of the team! Owners and trainers are amongst the best in the business. They have a plethora of knowledge to share and are always willing to help with anything you need!! They have a vast variety of training programs/services to offer. Prices are extremely fair and well worth it!! If you’re looking to make some changes and reach your goals then I HIGHLY recommend Hamilton Fitness Academy! Check them out! You won’t be disappointed I promise! Cheers,Pat More...

It can be really hard to find a gym to work at where the trainers aren't in competition with one and other for sales. It's near impossible to find an atmosphere where trainers can express themselves and have fun at work while getting the job done and if nothing else it's nice get paid respectfully for the job we do. Not peanuts. I think most of all it's just a positive, team based atmosphere, full of encouragement, and mutual support (clients included). HFA is a really great place to work for all these reasons.

As one of the newer staff members at The Hamilton Fitness Academy I can definitely say the atmosphere is like no other. Ive worked at a few different studios before and nothing comes close to my experience here. My first day walking in I felt very comfortable and was greeted immediately. The gym is exclusive for clients so they get the attention they seek out for while working with amazing personal trainers. You will learn to understand how your body works and what it needs to be at it’s best. Looking forward to seeing you at The Academy! More...

As a long standing member of the Hamilton Fitness Academy, I can whole heartedly highly recommend this gym. Its changed my life for the better in every aspect. Ultimately you have to find the willpower in yourself, but a supporting cast is crucial to that success, and the end results. The staff here goes above and beyond what you would get at a “cookie cutter” gym. The difference? They truly care about YOU. Great location, amazing staff. Come be a part of our family. :) More...

I have been training at Hamilton Fitness Academy since the end of December 2018. The atmosphere at HFA is unbelievable, all the trainers are welcoming and extremely motivational. The gym is extremely clean and organized, you feel like all the trainers truly care about the environment. I do personal training 3x/week with Xavier, going into the gym was so outside my comfort zone I was extremely nervous. Xavier is extremely upbeat and always portrays the positive lifestyle he suggests to others. Xavier’s knowledge of human physiology partnered with his athleticism makes for a good combination of a motivational trainer. Xavier is a vegan which has been helpful in my transition to that lifestyle, he places a lot of emphasis on a healthy diet and teaches his clients how food fits into a healthy lifestyle. Xavier takes pride in his training and personalizes every program for his clients. He takes into account mobility issues as well as injuries and assists in overcoming them. He definitely practices what he preaches. He lives a healthy and positive lifestyle and that shines through every time he is in the gym; he assists in making lifestyle changes that are ever-lasting. Training with Xavier at HFA is one of the best decisions I have ever made, he is truly helping me make all the positive changes in my life. I would recommend him to anyone looking to transform their lives. More...

Working at HFA has been one of the most liberating and enjoyable work environments I have ever been in. You get to embrace fully what you love to do without having to feel you are competing with the next trainer beside you. You are motivated and pushed to be the best when you work with the best! When you join the Academy, it's not just a studio to train at, it's a second home. You are welcomed, hugged and laughing within the first ten minutes of being inside. Every trainer brings a different strategy and style of training to the table. HFA truly has the most elite quality trainers on the market! If you want results, HFA PT will give you results! More...

Day 1What have I done? I've only had a personal trainer once before. This time around is even better with Allen. Sometimes I whine and I'm tired but Allen is great at motivating one to get the job done and keeps the motivation alive by reminding you of your goals.Allen has a "hawk eye" for noticing when your form has improved and lets you know about the change with great enthusiasm. I look forward to my training time and within 20 minutes I am very happy because the endorphins are floating around which causes one to work harder.Thanks for being there, Sarah L More...

There is definitely a difference between going to a regular gym vs going to a gym where you feel welcomed and feel like you're at home! All the trainers there take time to get to know everyone who walks into that gym. Huge shoutout to every single person that works there committing to making the gym feel personal to their clients. You will never feel like an outcast and this gym will actually make you want to get up and workout. HFA stands for encouragement and positivity and that is definitely something you'll feel immediately when you step in. I couldn't be more thankful!My coach Kylie has helped me transform myself not only physically but most importantly mentally in ways I could never imagine. I wouldn't be who I am today if it wasn't for her encouragement and useful training methods to help me grow. This is not just a gym- it's a home and somewhere where you can feel safe and motivated to do your best. Thank you to my trainer Kylie and all the other trainers there who have made this gym a home to their clients. Also- To Jay, Xavier, Jake, Jad, Ryan, Tasha, Richie, it's been so great to see these trainers always greet and welcome me and other people into the gym. They've taken time to always get to know the people that come into this gym! It is also great to see these trainers take action as well when there are boxing classes that take place! We all learn and grow together! Kylie- she is not just a trainer or a coach, but also someone that will be in your life forever. She will always find a way to make everyone enjoy the work that they put in and make you want to do your absolute best! She is so passionate about wanting others to succeed. This gym is nothing but a positive experience overall and I will always leave with a smile on my face! More...

The Hamilton Fitness Academy is such a positive atmosphere to be in. All the trainers who work there are such passionate and dedicated professionals. I have worked with a few of them, namely Jay, Tasha, Xavier, and Kylie.. and for the past 6 months for 3 days a week with the one and only Jake Reddick. He is the most energetic and enthusiastic person i have ever had the pleasure of meeting, his charisma and positive energy is just overflowing so much that it's contagious and you can't help but feel amazing about life when you're in his presence. Not only that but, he has taught me so much about exercise and proper form and different variations of movements to keep things interesting in the gym. He helped me to achieve my weight loss goals and helped me make more informed decisions with my nutrition. In short I have gained an education towards a new and better lifestyle and I plan on keeping up with the great changes I have made.All the trainers and fellow members I've had the chance to work with and workout with at HFA have become friends for life. They are almost like an extended family and Hamilton Fitness Academy is our home!I will always be grateful for the decision I made to walk through those doors and sign up! And I will continue with all the valuable tools they have given me for my personal health, fitness and success for the rest of my life! More...

Had the opportunity to work with Allen “The Mobility Guru” at HFA. For years I’ve been injuring my back and had no idea why. Allen tore my squat and deadlift apart and analyzed each individual muscle for weaknesses. I never realized how many muscle imbalances I had! He helped to fix my issues and taught me about my own body along the way.The HFA gym itself is a truly state-of-the-art facility. The owner, Jay Piasky and his team of truly talented and specialized trainers are one of a kind. You immediately feel welcomed as you walk through the door and it doesn’t matter whether you’re a professional in the field or a first-timer, they treat you like family. 5/5 Stars for these guys. 110% recommendation.

One of the best decisions I ever made was to become a part of HFA. Hands down one of the most amazing gyms I’ve ever been too. The atmosphere is super energetic and welcoming. But it’s the people who make it worth going too. I do boxing classes with Kylie who is extremely passionate and cares about your progress. I’ve seen and can feel my body becoming stronger and leaner. And as a woman, it’s empowering to box and have support from the team. Jay, who’s the owner is extremely down to earth and allows everyone to feel a part of the HFA family. If you’re contemplating going anywhere, make it the Hamilton Fitness Academy! More...

ve been through alot in my life. Cancer, depression, ADD. I got my health back only to loose it all over again.  Oct 2018 i was tipping the scales at almost 290lbs.  it was the lowest point in my life. Drugs, alcohol and living life in the fast lane finally caught up with me.   Instead of falling deeper in to depression i reached out to Jay. Jay introduced me to Xavier Ellis.  It was amazing how much damage and harm my lifestyle choices had done to me. i struggled to get through a workout. sometimes i considered quitting and giving up but i stuck with it. Xavier kept pushing me beyond my limits, he showed me how to reach down inside myself when i think i cant do it anymore.  i soon realized i had an out, a way to deal with my mind and stress as well as my health.  its been  almost 6 months since i started.  I noticed a huge difference in my state of mind, depression is no longer there. I dont rely on caffeine to get me through my day, for the first time in my life im seeing the midsection i always wanted. I have leg pressed 700lbs. something i havent done in years and at 41 i am in the best shape i have ever been. my only regret is not starting at  the academy alot sooner. I even decided to add Kylie to my routine for boxing.:)  Thanks HFA! you rock! More...

I am not sure I can put into words how happy I am that I found this place...The people there (clients and trainers a like) are a joy to be around. I swear some days you can almost feel the positivity radiating in the room! The staff goes above and beyond at HFA. They put in the time to research, and design a program that is specific to your body. As a person with scoliosis this is something I really need to look out for. What’s even better is that they take the time to explain it to you, so you understand why you’re doing these exercises, and how it will benefit you later on. Coming here is usually the high point of my day; even when my trainer is kicking my butt. It doesn’t matter what mood I come in with, I haven’t had a day where I left without a smile. It’s the atmosphere they cultivate, and the passion they put into their work that keep myself and many other clients coming back. For anyone looking to better their health I would highly recommend The Hamilton Fitness Academy, it’s probably the best thing I have done for myself in a long time! More...

Big Shoutout to my trainer Claire. She’s amazing❤️ always pushed me to my limits, wouldn’t let me give up, encouraged me at every step! She truly cared and would always give me suggestions on how I can improve overall. The first time I met Claire I told her about all my fitness goals and that’s exactly what we worked on every time I was there. I definitely started making gainzzz right away! There were times where I was late and Claire was just so understanding and patient with me. She’s a very knowledgeable trainer and having her as my trainer I gained A LOT of knowledge on working out!

So i joined 2 and a half months ago and it was the best decision i have ever made in my life! the first day i walked into the gym to meet with Jay, i was greeted by everyone with a friendly hello and i was instantly comfortable! i walked in with the intention of having Tasha Avila as my personal trainer, and that exactly who i got! I sat with Tasha when i first signed up and she asked me what i wanted to feel like, and look like, what i like and don't like about myself, i felt that that was so important considering I'm making a huge lifestyle change. I started seeing results INSTANTLY! i am SO happy with the way i feel and starting to look. Falling off track? No worries, Tasha will get you right back on track with such a positive attitude. She put me on a meal plan that is satisfying and works perfectly for my body. We have great conversations and tonnes of laughs, she makes it fun and makes you look forward to your next session. She makes the workouts fun, sometimes challenging but that's what gets results! If you cant do a certain workout, shes right there spotting you making sure your doing it properly. Its amazing to join somewhere, and feel no judgement and leave SO happy and ready to smash your day. I'm so grateful for all of Tasha's care that she has put into me, shes the best decision ever!Tasha, if you see this.. SORRY FOR BEING LATE EVERY WORKOUT BUT THANKS FOR BEING SO PATIENT WITH ME LOL!Tasha and the HFA are amazing, HIGHLY recommended! More...

This is the place to help you correct bad habits, strengthen your weaknesses and finally hit your personal goals. I needed help with some injuries, imbalances and weight loss. I had pain from work in my legs, knees and back making it harder and harder to workout. I was at a point feeling discouraged. I was considering hiring a nutritionalist, a physiotherapist and a trainer. I had a consultation at the academy and they covered all of my concerns and needs under one roof. With the help of the academy over the last couple months I've been strengthening weaker muscles. Stretching out over worked muscles in my legs that pull my knees and muscles in my back, shoulders and neck causing pain and posture issues. The results are dramatic. The pain is managed, I've lost weight, my posture has improved and I feel like I'm finally on track working out properly for my needs and goals. The customized nutrition plans and workouts give you the tools to get the results you have been looking for. I'm glad I had my consultation, don't hesitate, finally I'm on track and back in control.

I literally cannot express how impressed I am with the HFA team. Each and everyone of them are so dedicated to the clients they train. They truly want the best for their clients and no goal is to small to achieve. Whether it is gaining muscle tone or heck evening doing a chin up for the first time; they support you throughout the process. They take into consideration everyone is different and make individual plans for us to succeed. More...

The facility is stocked full of all the necessary equipment that will completely put the body to work. But it's not the equipment that makes a huge impact here. It's the environment which is created and led by a very motivated and inspired team of fitness coaches. Having been searching for an environment in which I could be put to the test the energy here immediately felt right for accomplishing my fitness focused journey. The trainers have both the skill and the drive. The programs are designed specific to not only goals but our bodies. So there's room for everyone here to get to it. I can't say enough about the community connections that happen here with other people pushing themselves to accomplish their best whatever that may be to them. This is a no nonsense location where when you show up you get to work. This isn't a gym. This is a training ground led by a team of people who will make sure you do the work. So leave the leaning on equipment for those other places. There are a tonne of other activities like kickboxing and other events that happen with the people here. I highly recommend if you are looking for a real transformation with your health and fitness that you take the leap and make the investment here once and for all. Oh and if you need that protein or other supplements right next door is Popeyes. If that's not enough to head over to Limeridge Mall across the street. There is lot's of parking here and it's immediately off the Linc. No excuses here. Thumbs up if you take the leap and win here. Cheers. More...

I really like the vibe here. I came in with a lot of back pain and limited mobility. Within 30 minutes Natasha explained to me what was wrong and how to fix it - in detail. I was in pain for a month and after a week of doing the exercises properly the pain was gone. Thank you :) More...

My mom and I have worked with our trainer (Claire) for years - and ever since she has moved to the Hamilton Fitness Academy the knowledge she has gained is incredible! I can’t see myself ever wanting to workout elsewhere or with anyone else. Claire has kept me motivated and pushes me to better myself everyday! Hamilton Fitness Academy is an amazing facility with extremely knowledgeable trainers who actually care about your health and well-being, and not just taking your money. From experienced athletes to beginners just starting out on their fitness journey I’d recommend everyone and anyone to go check out the academy! More...

These guys are the best of the best. So much knowledge under one roof is a deadly combination. Not only are they knowledgeable, but these men genuinely care about you as a person and your health. My sister and I are probably 2 of the newest clients, and seriously love it. Working out is changing my life in many ways. Less stress at work and just happier. Not to mention when you have a bad day, Jay & Ritchie make it their goal to make you smile. I always leave sweaty but laughing. Looking forward to the future! Thanks for being awesome Academy � More...

The Academy on Hess is one of the best personal experiences I've ever had. Not only by starting my fitness journey with Dan, the whole environment is warm and welcoming. You put in the work and an added bonus is that both Dan and Jay are some of the most educated and welcoming people I've met. They're able to help you no matter what your goals are. Thank you for everything we've done so far guys, and we're just getting started! More...
