Muscle and Mingling do Mix

Please join us in the first ever PSB Fitness Alumni and Student patron mixer in Mississauga. We recognize a shared value for health and fitness within the community. However, our hope is to take that connection one step further by hosting the first of many mixers. The aim is to bridge connections between esteemed Sheridan students both new and old. Catering will be buffet style. Various activities meant to incite conversation running throughout the event. We recognize the importance of mentorship.  A proper network will be more than helpful for students by the time they graduate. Elsewhere, we also recognize the desire for alumni to provide opportunities and to share in their experiences after they graduate for the sake of outreach. What we’re offering is a two for one and it’s completely FREE!

“Less well by ourselves, better together” – PSB Fitness

As we move forward, understanding the value of physical health, along with social health and mental health is integral. Therefore, we’ve fixated ourselves on creating an environment that encompasses all of those areas of health and promotes them. Also, a big area of stress for students is what might become of them once they graduate and what may be next for them. Hence, the Alumni Muscle Mixer presents an incredible opportunity to overpower this. Moreover, what better way to muscle past that anxiousness and lift your spirits.

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. Therefore, our low-cost membership allows you to work on yourself, while still being able to cover your other costs and refresh yourself with on our bar. Above all we count on sports drinks, protein smoothies, and freshwater! Not to mention our membership is only 14.99 monthly.

Are you ready for the challenge?

Or if you prefer it, you can be trained on a specific section. In addition, you can refresh yourself with a free protein smoothie of your choice.
