Upscale Locker Rooms
Unlike most fitness clubs, outstanding design at Premier/Mademoiselle extends to our locker rooms – and we believe we have the best and most attractive in the business. These striking areas are built with easy-to-clean, hygienic materials that look great and help to ensure the health and safety of our members. You won’t find germs and bacteria hiding in smelly carpets here! In keeping with the five-star hotel feel of this club, we devoted a lot of time and care in designing locker rooms to evoke the look of luxurious spas. Enjoy oversized private showers complete with toiletries, plus bathroom suites for those who prefer more privacy. Our signature circular granite-topped vanities anchor the locker room spaces, and provide toiletries and hair dryers for our members’ convenience. Each locker room features a eucalyptus steam room where members can unwind. Members love our oversized lockers for their personal belongings, and they appreciate having a lounge area with newspapers, a members’ telephone and wide-screen TV at their disposal. Our locker rooms help to make each Premier visit special from beginning to end.
Dr. Weight Loss Clinic and Nutrition Centre
Both members and non-members can access our Dr. Weight Loss Clinic for sound, scientific nutrition advice. A proper nutrition program is essential to achieve weight loss and body contouring, and our weight loss professionals can help. Make an appointment and we will launch you on the safest, soundest, healthiest nutrition/weight loss program available on the market today. With balance in mind, the Dr. Weight Loss Intelligent Prescriptive Nutrition (IPN) Program consists of meals with a ratio of 50% carbohydrates, 30% protein and 20% fats to achieve the sensible goal of two pounds of body fat loss per week.

We have kinesiologists on staff who will evaluate your starting point so we can develop a personalized program that will lead you to your ultimate health and fitness goals. You will work together with our kinesiologists to arrive at a personalized Intelligent Prescriptive Fitness (IPF) program.

We perform reassessments and nutritional consultations every three months to monitor your progress, and to make adjustments or upgrades to your program as required.
Play Zone Youth Fitness
We’re not kidding when we say Premier/Mademoiselle is a family fitness centre! We offer a great facility for encouraging children to engage in healthy activities like exercise. It’s called Play Zone Interactive Youth Fitness – the first of its kind, kids-only (8 to 17 years of age) interactive exercise/entertainment club. It’s good for kids, AND helps to establish healthy habits that will form the foundation for a lifetime of fitness. The Play Zone program includes both cardiovascular and weight resistance exercise specifically performed on equipment developed for children and teens. To keep youngsters interested, many of the exercises are essentially games such as Interactive Dance Pads, and Game Bikes powered by Sony PlayStation, which require kids to pedal in order to play each game and compete against each other. We also offer a Youth Circuit, which is an exercise system designed specifically to meet the needs of children. Our professional fitness staff provides a constant and watchful eye as children and teens work out and have fun in this invigorating space.
Mademoiselle Women’s Fitness Club
One of the most popular areas in our fitness centre is our club-within-a-club called Mademoiselle Women’s Fitness. This facility is operated by women for women, and even offers its own private entrance. Female members appreciate the fact that they enjoy all the features of our main facility, including a full aerobics floor, the IPF line of exercise equipment and cardiovascular equipment. In addition to their own locker room, Mademoiselle clients have access to all the other facilities in the complex. In true Premier style, there are professional staff on hand to guide exercise techniques for maximum benefit and minimal chance of injury. Mademoiselle Women’s Fitness Club is THE spot for working out in a luxurious, all-female environment.

The IPF Program
Exclusive to Premier and Mademoiselle, the Intelligent Prescriptive Fitness (IPF) scientific program was developed by Premier Fitness CEO John Cardillo, who believes that to achieve maximum�results, quality of exercise is much more important than quantity. At the heart of Premier/Mademoiselle’s IPF program is a total body workout. We have based this program on the philosophy that members should use the finest equipment possible to perform effective exercises for each body part. The goal is to stimulate lean muscle tissue growth without having to spend hours and hours in a gym. With the IPF system, you can accomplish amazing results using our 26 top-of-the-line machines all set up and to be performed in sequence. We have researched the market to ensure that each piece of apparatus is the best machine for each body part. Our top-of-the-line equipment includes items from Nautlius, Cybex, Life Fitness, Precor, Atlantis and TechnoGym. The IPF circuit takes only 40 minutes, and will totally strengthen and tone each body part. Members who spend just over half an hour, two to three times per week, report the benefits of an incredible body workout. Our trainers supervise technique, record members’ performance on each exercise on your personal workout program card, and regularly monitor your progress.
Many of our members thrive on the energy of aerobic exercise classes, and for them, we offer over 100 fitness classes per week. Our skilled, accredited, professional instructors lead these invigorating sessions in our private studios equipped with spring-loaded, state-of-the-art aerobic maple floors. Classes are designed for the spectrum of members, from beginners through advanced exercisers. These options take many forms, from low-impact to highly challenging boot camp, cardio kick-box, cross-training, cycling and much more. Class schedules are updated monthly.
Ah, Yoga – the popular activity that melds the body, mind and spirit through low-impact techniques. We guide you through specific exercises, controlled breathing techniques, meditation and particular movements that lengthen muscles as they strengthen them, improving balance, posture, flexibility and coordination. Members use this activity to help build a flexible, strong body while reducing stress. People of any age or fitness level can benefit from this form of exercise. There are specific memberships available for those who want to access our Yoga Studio only. Stretch, tone and strengthen your muscles in our relaxing environment.
