WHY WE STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD.....

Because we are Kitchener-Waterloo's FIRST INCLUSIVE GYM! An extra-ordinary company for extraordinary people doing extra-ordinary things, evolving health & fitness services for every body and ability.

We are a revolutionary gym that disregards all boundaries - a unique aspect for the fitness world today. Active Souls Project is a fully supported integrated fitness, yoga and athletic center dedicated to the real needs of our community.

At Active Souls Project “Functional Fitness” is the core practice that has continually proven to turn fitness goals into reality. “I Can’t” turns into “I Can” at Active Souls Project with the consistent support from their passionate and experienced coaches, trainers, and instructors. Squats, deadlifts, and bench presses are not the only things that you will see in the gym, but rather a facility full of multi-ability individuals coming together as a community to achieve a common practice - a healthy lifestyle.

This unique fitness facility stands out of the crowd as it is the only gym in the tri-cities that is dedicated to and specializing in training members with special needs and with various abilities. In addition, Active Souls Project provides elite dryland training for athletes, various yoga classes, personal training, and mobile training services to complete the integrated community we strive to build. Personalized fitness is done by providing training and nutrition programs that cater to the specific needs, goals, and abilities of their members. Fitness is more than physical well-being at Active Souls Project, it is an outlet that works to improve daily living skills, harvest positive social interactions and teach critical life skills, for an overall improvement in quality of life.

A true sense of community consistently fills the gym and the practice of unity through fitness is a concept that makes Active Souls Project the facility for all ages, abilities, and fitness levels. We create and deliver sports specific programming, weight loss/gain and strength fitness programs, wellness plans for youth and adults of all ages, abilities and fitness levels that include but not limited to:
