Shevy Schwartz has always been a health and fitness enthusiast. In 2013, She got certified as a personal fitness trainer at TAV College and continued her education studying group fitness, sports injuries, kinesiotherapy, orthotherapy, anatomy of stretching, muscle energy techniques, massage therapy, physiotherapy assistance, vertebral alignment and naturopath.
She then founded the school École d'énergie santé which is accredited with SNMQ, SNNQ, RMQ and ANPQ for massage therapy, kinesiotherapy, orthotherapy, naturopathy and stretch coach.
TAV College did not have a gym on their premises. The students of the Personal Training course given at TAV used the gym at the YMHA. At that time, she was working at the YMHA as a personal trainer and weight room floor supervisor. She got to know the students and situation. She then approached the college proposing they allow her to start a much needed gym at their college. It turned out to be a successful project which expanded from one small room to 3 large rooms.
The gym is open to all TAV students, no charge or memberships needed. It offers many different health and fitness programs for all the students at a small fee per class. Students can join the program classes with friends or family members as well.
The programs include:
Muay Thai- Muay Thai, sometimes referred to as "Thai boxing", is a martial art and combat sport that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This discipline is known as the "art of eight limbs" as it is characterised by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees and shins.
Strong Nation- HIIT classes
Wing Chun, or Ving Tsun, is a concept-based traditional Southern Chinese Kung fu style and a form of self-defense that requires quick arm movements and strong legs to defeat opponents. Softness and performance of techniques in a relaxed manner is fundamental to Wing Chun.
Step Class- Cardio
Therapeutic stretch classes
The gym is under constant supervision. Students can receive a one-time program from Shevy at no charge. Shevy is there to help each student achieve their gym goals and answer any questions they might have.
The gym equipment is constantly being cleaned. Masks are at the front door for students to take on their way out. Hand sanitizers are there for use upon entry and exit.
If you have any additional questions please don’t hesitate to reach out to Shevy.
