I’ve been seeing Heather for clinical Pilates for a few years and absolutely love it. I can’t believe how many muscles I even didn’t know I had and my overall lack of body awareness until really focusing on Heathers cues. She happily explains body mechanics of why certain exercises challenge me more than others and is really good at correcting my positioning when my body tries to cheat or when my posture is wonky. I had never heard of clinical pilates until seeing Heather and I’m so hooked. It’s made a huge difference in my core strength, posture and general alignment. I’ve also had a few minor body aches and pains here and there and anytime something comes up Heathers taken good care of me and done manual therapy, given me take home exercises and has even done IMS. Highly recommend Heather’s clinical pilates / physiotherapy to anyone who is looking to improve strength, flexibility or a friendly, professionally guided movement routine!

I highly recommend Johnny (RMT) as I have been booking sessions with him for hip/lower body issues. My posture, flexibility, and movement have drastically improved within a few sessions. Big thanks to Johnny as I believe these results were made possible by his massage techniques, patience in listening to what I want to achieve, and his genuine desire to help get me to where I want to be. Johnny has an athletic, multi-sport background and was able to educate me on ways I can improve my movements in hockey and golf via stretches, therapy, and muscle groups to target, which I found to be very valuable. Thanks to Johnny, my experience at the clinic has been excellent. In addition, the clinic is very clean, online booking system is straightforward, and parking is convenient.

Fantastic clinic, very well-run operation. Super clean and plenty of natural light. Front desk is very friendly every time you go in and out. All practitioners are committed to helping you in your goals, be it recovery or athletic excellence. Make no mistake, they don't give out magic pills to instantly cure your problem. If you're willing to put in the work, Lift is definitely the place to go!

As an ageing athlete holding on to whatever years he has left doing sports, I consider Heather to be one of.....if not, the BEST Physio therapists I've ever had. Professional, Considerate and Respectful.

I’ve been doing strength training with Shauna after an injury — this is my first time working with a strength coach and I’m beyond blown away. Her knowledge and expertise are so valuable, and her approach runs totally counter to all of the toxic diet/fitness culture stuff I was afraid of encountering. I feel safe and strong and supported. Can’t recommend enough!!
Clients love booking online: Easy, fast, no waiting, available 24/7.
