The creation of our studio is based around the idea that not everyone enjoys the public, marketing based, busy, and intimidating environment that a public gym offers. Our environment is one that is dedicated to people of all ages, all walks of life, and all abilities. The privacy offered lends confidence, and self-esteem, and our trainers are there to instil this in each individual.

#bodiesbyphil, our strength and conditioning class, is a great option for people interested in exercising in a group setting. Unlike most group classes, the class size is small (8 people). The focus is on proper weightlifting techniques, high intensity cardio and conditioning intervals, circuit training, and laughing. bodiesbyphil.ca
The greatest thing about Bounce is the private training environment. No line-ups for machines, no waiting for equipment, no music too loud to hear your trainer, and no rude members. This is what Bounce has built its business model around—taking everything out of the gym environment that is displeasing to members.

Megan has enjoyed a nineteen year career in personal training in the downtown core, and is one of the two partners at Bounce. The location has allowed her to focus on the issues that specifically affect the demographic of professionals in the government, and those that work with it. Working in conjunction with physiotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists and other professionals, she has developed an extensive knowledge of specific issues and syndromes that affect them. Using that knowledge has allowed her to develop an intuitive understanding and complete treatment philosophy that have been extremely successful.
Megan specializes in core strengthening, proper postural alignment, active stretching, repetitive movement injury, and general wellness. And her belief is that this can all be done in conjunction with feeling good about the way a person looks, an important part of psychological health.
Megan est bilingue.
“Megan has a wonderful ability to make working out challenging, effective and fun. She knows how to push you that little bit more than you think you're ready for, and she's always right. I've had great results since I started working out with her.”
“Of all the items, activities and hobbies that I have spent money on, personal training with Megan has been the best spent! Megan is a first class personal trainer. She is knowledgeable, accommodating and pleasant. She continuously studies and takes courses to self-improve. Megan cares! She wants you to do your best and she will do everything to help you achieve it.”

“Phil’s bootcamp is by far the best fitness class I’ve ever taken. His unique approach focuses on teaching the mechanics behind each and every exercise and achieving the best results, no matter what your skill level! This class makes me feel strong, toned and more confident about my body, and my fellow bootcampers keep me laughing the whole time. If I ever get challenged to a pushup competition, I will win.”
“Phil Green’s enthusiasm and positive attitude are both addictive and contagious! He designed a program geared at meeting my fitness goals while accommodating my physical limitations. He challenges me to push myself a little harder each session. I know that I can trust him to challenge me without pushing me too far. And best of all, he has a sense of humour!”
“It took me 15 years to find a trainer who suited my needs. It didn’t take long to figure out that Phil was that trainer! I have now worked with him for 2 years and I have no intention of stopping. Throughout our time working together, I have presented him with a number of challenges as I have suffered 3 injuries that have impacted my mobility. Though each injury has been unique, Phil has always been able to find exercises that challenge me and help me to reach my goals. I am the strongest I have ever been and that is all thanks to Phil Green.”

With her positive attitude and enthusiasm, Anna’s focus is to help her clients turn health and fitness goals into stepping stones for future success. She addresses functional fitness, rehabilitation and mobilization conditioning, powerlifting, HIIT and Pilates. Her expertise in postural and rehabilitative conditioning has assisted her clients in achieving an improved quality of life and renewed confidence. She is a passionate public speaker and can often be found working alongside peers in health and fitness education.
Anna is also a Registered Massage Therapist and practices Swedish, deep tissue, fascial techniques, prenatal therapy and postpartum care.
Anna is inspired by a strong belief in the benefits of massage therapy and the joys of excellent health and fitness, as reflected in her clients.
“After many years or sporting activities, I sustained an injury that shut down my involvement in sport and lead to months of acute pain as I tried conventional physiotherapy with little success.
Finally I was diagnosed as needing urgent surgery on my spine which was followed by a long recovery period. I became far too inactive with the result that muscles atrophied and strength declined. Since that time I have used the services of four or five personal trainers who helped, but slowly. I finally happened upon Anna David and she is, without question, the best and most effective trainer I have dealt with.
We focus on core strengthening and general flexibility. She has a pleasant and affable personality that makes her easy to work with and to respond to. She has a multiplicity of skills that allows her to offer variety and to gently add more challenging exercises without needless exhortation, relying instead on observation and encouragement. I have noted that she watches carefully and gets you to your limits, which of course thereby expand, without old fashioned urging and barking. This in turn leads to sustained improvement.
As a result after a year working with her, I can happily report improved posture, greater flexibility and mobility and greater range of movement in my joints. In addition my abdominals are stronger and my stomach is flatter, which makes her popular with the tailor who alters my clothes!
I am personally grateful to her and commend her to any prospective clients. She is easy to work with and technically excellent.”
