When I first started at Bang, I had no idea how to approach kettlebells, dumbbells, bar bells... you name it! I'd done lots of HIIT, other high-impact classes before but kept getting injured again and again. Over the past couple years, I regularly attended the Anti-Gravity Society class with Miles (from pandemic outdoors, virtual, and then back indoors). Looking back, I've progressed so much, gained confidence, strength, and important understanding about form and technique that has opened up the doors for me to do so much more movement and sports that I've couldn't access/do before. Miles gives everyone careful, close attention and offers thoughtful adjustments for your individual practice to remain injury-free. Everyone at Bang, Geoff, Mike, Steve, all the community members, are so supportive. It feels like home whenever I go 🙂 Bang has honestly been a game-changer -- I know I can do this for a lifetime now. Thank you!
Joined Bang a little before the start of the pandemic and it has been a key piece to surviving and prospering. A little structure, slow and steady progress, and a great community. Always some laughs with the weights, even at 7:30 in the morning. A great place if you want to grow your capabilities.
Joining Bang is one of the best things I have done for my physical and mental health over the past year. Bang is a boutique gym that specializes in small group personal training sessions with a focus on helping clients cultivate long term sustainable strength and wellbeing. I’m so grateful to Geoff, Mike, and the team at Bang for always being accommodating and working with me to find a structure that works. Miles, Vivek, and Lisa are all wonderful coaches that have made strength training accessible for a new lifter and genuinely so enjoyable. There’s a place for everyone there and the team really cares about helping you achieve your own unique goals. I was looking for a place with a strong philosophy that centred around the intrinsic value of exercise and other health behaviours and I have found that here.
I was looking for a knowledgable and experienced trainer who could help me workout while overcoming a shoulder injury. These guys know what they're doing - they're very technical and have been helping me improve my stability, mobility, and strength. If you're looking for quality training this one of the best options in the city.
This review is long overdue. Geoff and Miles both have a hand in changing my life for the better. By no means am I an athlete, and the thought of joining the gym made me cringe. It's now been a few months since I joined Bang's group personal training program and my well-being has improved significantly. Geoff and Miles care about each of their clients individually, catering their approach to help everyone reach their specific goals. I cannot thank Bang enough for creating such a comfortable community, where you are allowed to go at your own pace, set your own goals, and see yourself crush them.
