The group workout with Breanne at the PG, UAH is by far​ our best workout experience ever and the only one we have stuck to for any length of time. It has helped us overcome our exercise inertia and because it is so much fun by now we are completely addicted. Breanne keeps exercise challenging and manageable but with a small group of 3 or 4 we get plenty of individual attention and customization. Love It!

Jocelyn has been a member of the PG at
Southport ever since the facility started to operate in Calgary.
She feels that being able to exercise during her lunchbreak has made her a better employee. Getting in some fitness during the day relieves stress and keeps her more alert so she can stay focused. Daily fitness also frees up time in the evening for social and family and friends time.
Jocelyn is into tennis, yoga, and activities that she can do in the mountains like hiking and snowboarding.
Its been great to see all the things the Pulse does to stay connected and engaged with the PG. She joined the United Way plane pull team last year and had a lot of fun!
