For almost 40 years, TrymGym has assisted more than 15,000 people in achieving weight loss and a healthier lifestyle. TrymGym has existed since 1972. Initially it was offered out of the University of Calgary Medical Centre and was exclusive to the Centre’s patients. Soon after that it opened up to the public and then in 1994 it moved from the Faculty of Medicine to the Faculty of Kinesiology.
The advantage of our exercise sessions is the opportunity to discuss individual goals with a professional, modify exercises to the participant’s own skill level, and receive encouragement and feedback on progress. Participants have education sessions and receive individual feedback on their dietary records and individual guidelines for healthy eating, prepared by a Registered Dietitian. To round out the program, participants learn to change the way they think about healthy living, and leave with the tools to make fitness and nutrition a part of their daily routine.
