Engineered Bodies checked all the boxes for what I was looking for in a gym. The philosophy of movement and focus on technique is exactly what is was looking for to build a good foundation to prevent injuries. They have built a strong welcoming community that is very positive and are always looking to grow in the right direction. High recommended!
Before joining EB I never considered CrossFit. I was Intimidated by it thinking it was a place for strong and fit athletes only. I am so glad I gave It a chance! Individuals of any strengths and abilities are welcome to EB and coaches are patient and knowledgeable and will help you reach your goals whatever they might be. Combination of various classes (strength training, kin stretch, movement) helped me not only become stronger and more confident that but also improve my joint mobility. I also appreciate strong sense of community EB created. I would recommend this place to anyone: whether you are an athlete looking to train for a competition or just starting up in your adventure to stronger heathier self.
Engineered Bodies has been an amazing gym with terrific and caring coaches, as well as a warm and welcoming community. I was looking to get back into CrossFit, after having been away for a few years due to injuries. I wanted an environment where I could both learn proper technique and challenge myself. EB was the perfect place for this. I enjoy ever session at this gym, and look forward to it daily.
I decided to join Engineered Bodies because I really wanted to get back in shape and found that I lacked motivation and struggled to push myself when I worked out alone. I looked at a few crossfit gyms in the tri-cities area online and went to a few gyms in person to get a feel for what they were all about. I was really impressed with the small class sizes, emphasis on technique and coaching at engineered bodies so I decided to join! Furthermore, I was a little hesitant being new to crossfit and the gym but the people are what made my experience so great. The members at Engineered Bodies are fantastic! This gym has members both men and women who range from 19-70 who are committed to improving their physical fitness. So don’t worry you don’t have to be a pro athlete to work out here! Lastly, Anthony and his team make you feel welcomed and are constantly cheering you on and motivating you to be better every class!
As a high school volleyball athlete, I knew that I needed to incorporate strength training in order to take my game to the next level.I was looking to gain more muscle mass, become stronger, more explosive with a higher vertical jump, and more mobile. This place was perfect for that as I could tailor my training specifically to my goals.4 months into my training, I gained 13 pounds of muscle, went from skimming a basketball rim to hanging on to one gaining 3 inches of vertical jump, learned new weightlifting techniques with proper form so I don’t get injured, and most importantly learned how to take care of my joints which now allows me to last longer and stay healthier in tournaments.Every coach at engineered bodies have provided an incredible environment for everyone to grow in all areas, the student discount is a huge help and I’m glad I chose this place to take my game to the next level.
Engineered Bodies did wonders to help be get back into shape. After being inactive for years, Anthony, Sam and their team helped me get on the path to a healthier lifestyle. The community in the gym is like no other and provides a great, empowering atmosphere that pushes you to succeed. 10 outta 10. Highly recommend.
I joined Engineered Bodies 5 months ago. Prior, I tried different gyms and exercise programs but I was not consistent or motivated to stick to any one thing. Originally, the thought of doing Cross Fit really intimidated me! Anthony Is very knowledgeable on fitness and health and his coaching team are the real deal! They are professional, supportive and encouraging. Anthony has incorporated innovative Movement and Mobility classes that are so important to take in addition to Cross Fit. It helps to reduce possible injury. They offer Olympic Lifting classes and more!
There is a very authentic sense of community. I feel like the members and staff are my friends and family. We support and encourage each other and celebrate our successes. We even hang out outside the box.
I'm getting stronger, toned, muscular, and and more fit.
I can not even imagine going anywhere else. I'm so happy I made this very positive healthy change in my life!❤💪
In my early 40's and having waited for both my children to be at school before pursuing an all-round fitness program, I was keen to find somewhere that would meet my needs (no experience of strength training, lacking motivation, unsure CrossFit would suit me, etc). I saw the Google reviews for Engineered Bodies - which seemed too good to be true - threw caution to the wind and arranged a consultation with owner, Anthony. I am so pleased I did! The Google reviews were absolutely correct! It was immediately obvious that Anthony was a highly-qualified professional who was passionate about helping people achieve their fitness goals.A month after joining Engineered Bodies, having gone through a thorough induction, and now understanding the philosophy of 'progressions' (mastering each stage of a skill one at a time) I'm not sure how I ever thought I'd get anywhere with my fitness anywhere else! In a short space of time I have already noticed gains - I'm stronger, more toned and have more energy. These results are directly attributable to Anthony and his team. I have always stayed reasonably fit through hiking but I have never felt this good in my life!With Engineered Bodies it is easier to stay motivated because sessions take place in an energy-filled group environment (with an awesome community of people from all ages and stages of training). I love the group training sessions! If you want to be the 'best you' - you just have to show up! The training program for each specific session has already been carefully researched, designed, and prepared for you by professional coaches/educators. The coaches are great motivators who, crucially, oversee and tutor you on proper technique.Another aspect of Engineered Bodies which seems to set them apart from other CrossFit gyms is their commitment to offering regular Movement Classes. These classes really compliment the strength-building classes and highlights their fundamental approach to helping improve all-round fitness and mobility.I cannot recommend Engineered Bodies highly enough. In fact, my husband was so impressed with my feedback and progress that he has now joined, too! 🙂(Written by Samantha B)
Engineered Bodies is the only place where I've felt like I can improve myself every day, just by showing up. It's not just a gym - it's a community where support, friendship and excellent coaching come together to make you grow.I started working out at Engineered Bodies about a year ago. I wasn't in the best shape - running occassionally and surviving a hike now and then.During the intake program, Anthony explained his philosophy about building a strong foundation of movement quality. In principal, I agreed with with him. It made sense - do the techniques properly and you won't get injured and you will become stronger. However, at the time I didn't realize the confidence that would come with proper training. It was also surprising that despite how challenging the workouts could feel, my body would continue to adapt without pain or injury.When I started, I couldn't do a single push-up. Now, not only can I do push-ups, but, among many other things, I'm learning handstands, I can lift over 100 lbs over my head - and I feel energetic and happy while doing it.Each coach at Engineered Bodies has a unique and valuable perspective to shape you with. They make an effort to provide individual attention to each client. You will feel like they genuinely care about your physical and mental success.I highly recommend trying out Engineered Bodies - their focus on movement quality and client success is unparalleled.
Engineered Bodies is a gym that sets itself apart. The first day I walked in, I was welcomed instantly. It was clear right away that community is a major priority to the coaches as well as the clients. There is a strong focus on healthy movement and proper form and the coaches are always prepared to ensure that the clients are working safely and progressively. They are passionate about training and it is clear through their interactions and attention to detail that they really love what they do.As a mentorship student, I have been fortunate enough to work with Anthony on furthering my career as a fitness professional. He has a great understanding of the industry and has given me many tools to work with in order to move forward with my career goals. Mentorship sessions cover everything from business and marketing, to training techniques and continuing education. Proper movement form and quality are a focus point during sessions discussions. There is also an emphasis on proper and in depth screening protocols, something that does not always get touched on in most fitness courses. Anthony has been incredibly encouraging and helpful in guiding me to become a confident, and knowledgable trainer. It is clear I could not have picked a better mentor and facility to start my path with.
Two plus years ago, my wife and son had to put my socks and shoes on as my back was such a mess. Anthony gave me correctives that my 8 visits in the previous month to the chiropractor couldn't fix. Incredible coaching, great nutritional information, movement fundamentals you don't get anywhere, and the best atmosphere at any box you will find. I tested every gym in Port Moody and am so glad I found this place. I am pushing more weights than I could ever imagine and am feeling the best I ever have. Love this place !!!!
