Happy Natal Day Weekend!

Thanks for all your continued business through this year at our new location.

On September 1st, our prices increase at Tara MacDonald Fit Club along with another increase MacDonald & Woods Personal Training Clinic.  I held down the price this year as we got to know our community and showcase our experienced personal trainers in what they do best – train you, the client!  I will be posting the rates on Tuesday and sending out an email to all of our current clients at both spaces this weekend.  I take full responsibility for setting the prices – this lets my trainers train while I take care of sales and marketing.

We are closed Natal Day, Monday August 7th, 2017 but will open again Tuesday, August 8th at 9:30am. This also applies to MacDonald & Woods Personal Training Rehab Clinic as well who will open on their regular hours on Tuesday.
