WHO WE ARE
We are a community of people just like you.
We are moms, full-time employees, grandparents, teenagers, dads, young professionals, retirees and people with different limitations. We are all here to make our health a priority and evolve into a better version of who we are now.
OUR CORE VALUES
These are our core values: what we embody as a rebel team and business.
We are here to serve our paying customers. They deserve to be greeted every time they walk in here. They deserve to have our best attitude and our 1:1 attention. They come first.
Culture is what makes people enjoy being here! It's why our members are so loyal and rave about our community. We must ALWAYS make everyone feel comfortable and safe. WE MUST ALWAYS HAVE FUN AND SMILE!
Good enough never is. We drive change with vigor. We celebrate our successes but commit to never peaking. We have a very strong work ethic and know the plan is to always grow and make a greater impact.
You are a leader that represents our business. What you do inside and outside the gym represents us. You must always uphold the highest ethical standards and promote trust and respect. Your actions and behaviors are as if this is your business.
GOOD HEALTH IS MORE THAN FITNESS
We agree that the gym is just 60 minutes of your day and the other 23 hours are just as important like stress management, nutrition, sleep, mental health, and lifestyle. We believe that in order to live a healthy and happy life, you must maintain good health in ALL aspects...
Good health is MORE than fitness! The gym is just 1 hour of your day. We like to focus on the rest of the 23 hours too so that we can improve our overall quality of life and sustain good health long-term. What does that look like?
Imagine being in great shape, feeling strong physically, mentally and spiritually. Being able to handle everyday life activities, feeling energized, happy, healthy, managing your stress, fueling your body properly with nutrition, and being able to handle what ever life throws at you.
That is who we are and when the season gets tough or things slip and the motivation is not there, we build each other up. We empower each other. We encourage each other. We remind each other of who we want to be, and we push each other forward. We celebrate one another. We are a strong community.
If you are lost, come join us. We do not judge. We accept all. You are just as important and we want to celebrate you too!
We want to invite you into our gym home by giving you your first 3 classes free. Fill out the contact form and we will reach out to schedule a free consult and movement assessment before your first class! We look forward to serving you!
WHY THE THUNDERBIRD?
The Thunderbird logo is a very important icon to me and Rebel Strength & Fitness.
I am an enrolled member of the Chippewa of the Thames First Nation. The majority of Southwestern Ontario is our modern traditional territory. We are a forward thinking nation with a strong grasp on our traditional values.
Our symbol represents the Thunderbird, which was originally an eagle that evolved during the early days. The job of the eagle was to take messages from our people and deliver it to the "other side" or to "spirits" and back. In order to do so, the eagle had to travel around the sun, which required strength and power. When doing so, the eagle transformed into a Thunderbird to get to the other side.
I use the Thunderbird as a symbol in my gym because it stands for strength and power. It can be too easy to let our minds stop us from reaching our goals. It requires strength and power to get to the other side.
Just like the Thunderbird.
