Chris had to relearn how to walk

One year ago, I became paralyzed on my right side from the neck down. I had to relearn how to walk, feed myself, tie my laces, and even take myself to the washroom. I was told I would have to live with disabilities.

Now here I am, about to compete in a paddleboard race in Canmore that statistically I was only supposed to watch from the sidelines in a wheelchair.


All our personal trainers carry Kinesiology Degrees or similar educations.

At Vagus, you'll learn safe movements that can help with a wide range of conditions including arthritis and chronic knee pain, complemented by nutrition plans suitable for celiac disease and other dietary considerations.

Gisele hadn’t tied her shoes since she was 20

I had a hip issue from a chronic childhood illness. So when Leslie—my trainer—encouraged me to do full body strengthening, I told her "I can't do all of that stuff."

"Yes, you can," she said. And she was right.

After 14 months at Vagus, I can bend, I can garden, I can ride a bike, and I can tie my shoes. I hadn't tied my shoes since I was twenty. That was a really big deal.

Vicki was told she needed ankle surgery


When I was diagnosed with a torn peronius brevis tendon in my ankle and told that I would require surgery, I was worried. What if I exercise made my ankle worse? But my trainer, Jeff, built a well-rounded program that would assist in a faster recovery after surgery.

Lo and behold, when I returned to my surgeon eight months, one CTscan and one MRI later, I learned that I would no longer require my "inevitable" surgery.

Lori needed a safe space to recover

In 2014, I was hit by a brain tumour. I had three surgeries and it took almost two years to recover.


I came to Vagus for the 1-on-1 personal training, so I wouldn't hurt myself. It’s been over a year since I was paired up with Mike, my trainer, and he still keeps my movements safe and makes each session fun.
