I see on your website that you have semi-privates, rather than privates. Can I book a private?
At Jimmies, a semi-private means that when you arrive you may have 1-2 other people being coached by the same coach in your session. Each of you, however, will have your unique program based on your goals and needs. The other clients' level will not affect your session. If you are a beginner and absolutely would like to start with a one-on-one session, give us a call at 514-733-6555.

I do Yoga. Does that give me the same benefits as Jimmies?
No, yoga does not offer the same benefits as functional training. Functional training will not only prevent muscle loss as you age, but will increase your muscle mass and bone density. At Jimmies, you will also work your conditioning (cardio), raising your heart rate much higher than yoga, which is beneficial for your circulatory system. Yoga and training at Jimmies are complimentary.
