PSB Fitness Membership Perks

To our valued PSB Fitness members, we offer a free beverage of their choice for every 6 drinks purchased. We are able to keep track of the purchases through our system by scanning the membership card every time you make a purchase of a beverage.

Through our membership loyalty program, we also provide opportunities to our members to win free merch, classes, and the possibility of a year long free membership by entering our contests on social media. 

Sheridan Students

At PSB Gym with smoothie bar in Mississauga and Brampton we offer two different pricing sections, one for Sheridan students and the other is for the public. 

For Sheridan students, the pricing is at a bargain but for the public, the pricing is normal. Sheridan students have the advantage to pay gym fees as part of their tuition, this means that PSB will be taking a lump sum from the college for the number of students who use any service in the facility. For the public, the prices are normal because although
these fitness centers provide unique products, not all services available at other gyms are available here.

At PSB Fitness we are dedicated to providing jobs for current Sheridan students and Sheridan graduates. Whether it is personal trainer or smoothie bar barista, we look forward to giving opportunities to our students.

High Intensity Physical Training in Mississauga

Tired of exercising on the same equipment repeatedly? Desiring to try new things and move up to the next level? In PBS Fitness we have designed the ideal solution for the ones who are trying to unlock their true potential.

Who are we?

We are the only gym in Mississauga that offers the unique experience of fully exercising with your own body without the use of machines. Our experienced instructors will guide you through the whole process and assist you on the way so you can unlock the next level of your capacity.

Come join our community! (Li Sun, 2017)

We are located on the Sheridan’s Hazel McCallion Campus, in Mississauga. Our full address is 4180 Duke of York Blvd, Mississauga, L5B 0G5. We offer deals to students, alumni, and athletes. Moreover, we are the official gym to Sheridan Bruins!

How are we different?

Unlike most of the other gyms, PBS Fitness does not count with common gym machines. In contrast, we combine CrossFit, free weights, unorthodox items such as wheels, hammers, ropes, etc. and a unique TRX suspension system, as a result you can exercise more naturally. Our professional instructors guide these sessions and they will lead your group through the different stations, consequently you can exercise every inch of your body.

Why stop using machines?

The creation of gym machines was primarily to provide a “safer” alternative to their counterparts. However, in most instances, this is not the case. Machines put your body in unnatural positions, consequently your joints through dangerous ranges of motion. Consequently, this can lead to muscle strain and even serious injuries. (Yeung, 2021) Most of the machines are put in a position that the human body is not meant to be. As a result you can guide your fitness journey on how nature intended it to be by doing more natural exercises.

Why exercise more naturally?

Furthermore, there are certain benefits associated with exercising more naturally. For instance, natural exercise activates more muscles than machines. Therefore is better for building muscle in the long run. (Parren, 2021) Consequently, by eliminating certain risks and unlocking your true potential, you will achieve more efficient results and long-term success. 

By performing our natural exercises, you are able to lose weight more quickly than if you engaged in an average gym workout, over a certain amount of time. (BackToMotion, 2020) In other words, you will be able to optimize the way you exercise therefore getting in shape smartly!

Unlock your true potential. (Cottonbro, 2021)

Will you break the bank?

Absolutely not! PBS Fitness gym was designed with students in mind, therefore as fellow alumni, we understand the struggle and desire to make the most out of your hard-earned money.

At PSB fitness, we recognize the ever-important relationship between nutrition and exercise. Our goal is to instill this mentality in all of our members. Regardless of personal, religious, or dietary restrictions, our on-site food bar caters to all. From a customized vegan plan at Sheridan College to customized halal meal plans, we can help customers target both their nutrition and fitness objectives.

Implementing a Nutritional Strategy

The 80/20 Rule: customized vegan plan at Sheridan College
The 80/20 Rule (Credit: https://fitpage.in/the-80-20-rule-how-can-you-apply-this-for-weight-loss/)

Did you know, that eating two Cadbury Crème Eggs is equivalent to 30 minutes of jogging? Both activities result in either consuming or burning 350 calories, yet one takes a matter of minutes. This is why it is important to consider the 80/20 rule – 80% nutrition to 20% fitness. Even though this equation is not scientifically proven, it is based on how much easier it is to consume calories over burning them.

Being physically active without healthy eating is like trying to get from point A to point B, but only being able to run in circles.

Score a Customized Vegan Plan at Sheridan College

PSB fitness will be offering a customized workout plan, as well as a customized meal plan by one of our two owners. This FREE offering is valid for the first 150 students who sign up at PSB fitness. By offering personalized plans, we can ensure that our customers can fulfill their needs with our current machines and food offerings. Through convenience between classes, a wider range of food offerings, and 2 certified personal trainers on-site, PSB fitness is a one-stop shop for the Sheridan student body to:

1.  Complete a full workout and,
2. Have access to various reasonably priced, delicious, and nutritious made-to-order meals.

Most personal trainers touch on both the physical and nutritional components of working out. However, there is a lack of incorporating both within a facility. Yes, gyms like Good Life and LA Fitness have smoothie bars, but this limits the inclusive and diverse nutritional offerings. At PSB fitness, we know consuming smoothies day in and day out is unattainable. That is why we offer protein bowls, paninis, fruits, vegan desserts, halal-certified meat, gluten-free tacos, and so much more.

To take advantage of this offer, head on down to either the Brampton or Mississauga Sheridan College PSB location. Become one of the first 150 members to receive your customized vegan, vegetarian, halal, or alternative meal plan today!

You Are What You Eat

Placing 80% of your focus on healthy nutrition is easier said than done. People can make time in their day to drive to the gym and exercise for approximately 30 minutes. However, people recognize there is just not enough time in the day to prepare nor cook a healthy, nutritious meal. That is what we are here for! Never forget, that it is easier to consume 350 calories than it is to lose 350 calories.

So do not let your lack of time be a burden to your ability to be physically healthy. With PSB’s customized meal plan promotion at Sheridan College, we want you to be successful with the 80/20 rule.

Check out our PSB photographic calorie tracking app as the perfect accompaniment to your nutritional journey.

Live By the 80:20 Rule

Believing that positive body changes are a result of continuous exercise, is a thing of the past. By implementing the 80/20 rule, we can all now recognize the importance of both nutrition and fitness. Congratulations, you have successfully identified the first fundamental step to improving your overall health. Further understanding your body composition is more complicated when considering sleep, genetics, and stress.

To understand how this all affects your body, contact co-founder and certified personal trainer Matt at (905)-475-8912 or Matt@PSBfitness.ca.
