The SCDA team recently visited Pax Active, a new downtown fitness studio that focuses on personal training and small group workouts.
‘Pax’ – shorthand for people – is something local fiancé team Beth Moore & Kevin Rogers understand well. After years in the industry (Kevin a trainer for 10+ years & Beth, top in sales at notable fitness companies across North America) they realized most companies were more focussed on growing their business than building strong people. Determined to see a change in the industry, Beth & Kevin took their passion & expertise and opened Pax Active – a studio designed to empower everyone from beginners to professional athletes reach their fitness goals, and learn the tools to do so properly to continue independently once the program concludes.
When we first entered the studio we were immediately charmed by the building and space.
We started by sitting down for a consultation with Beth – who is also a local singer/songwriter that brought Niagara to the top of the CBC charts more than once! Beth picked up a guitar at 18 and had her first show only 3 weeks later – this same passion & ambition shines through as she talks about fitness. The consultation was comfortable and conversational, covering our goals while she provided honest and insightful feedback for a realistic approach to how Pax Active could help us get there.
Next, Kevin took us through an Inbody scan and a Functional Movement Test that consisted of 7 moves. The attention to and consideration of movement certainly makes Pax Active stand out. Teaching clients how to correctly move their bodies has helped many overcome and prevent injuries or pain that has previously held them back from hitting their goals or even working out in some cases.
Kevin then took us through a workout. The exercises are fun and often utilize unique and creative equipment that mimics the same movements we make every day – from cleaning the house, playing with children, pushing, reaching, etc. We especially loved hanging out on the monkey bars.
After one day we are impressed with what we’ve been able to accomplish and we look forward to coming back to build our strength and do the moves even better.
Pax Active is currently offering corporate wellness packages to downtown businesses and 20% off their regular services to downtown business owners and employees!
