This package includes an interdisciplinary follow-up with different health professionals, to optimize results.

Proximity Training

Individual training sessions with one of our professionals, who will plan your program, based on your needs, and will supervise and encourage you. You will reach your goals quickly and safely.

Conference, Information and Development Clinic

A theoretical or practical presentation on different health, physical fitness or performance subjects. This service is for organizations, businesses or sports teams. We will come to you, or you can come to us.

Specialized Courses

Cross-Training is a high-intensity training method that focuses on constantly varying exercises and functional movements. Each session is supervised by a certified specialist. These group training sessions allow for quick visible results, and the exercises are adapted to each individual’s physical fitness, so they are safe.

If you want to develop muscle or cardiovascular endurance, strength, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and precision, Cross-Training is what you need!

Weight-lifting (the basis for powerlifting) is a sport which deserves more attention. It develops strength, power, coordination, muscle balance, joint stability and is quite functional. It allows you to work out your upper and lower body in order to lift a weight to your shoulders, then above your head (shoulder throw), or directly overhead (snatch). Alternative versions of these moves will also be provided in this course.

  • Definition and feasibility assessment of your goals
  • Specific physical tests and assessment of your athletic abilities
  • Determination of a specific program based on your goals, your sport, and your physical fitness level
  • Access, by appointment, and supervision of each semi-private training session: never more than 4 people per health professional or trainer
  • Regular reassessments to evaluate your performance progress

In the event of injury, we will ensure that you have priority access to our Santé Universelle physiotherapy clinics: the sooner injuries are treated, the quicker you will recover.
