Our Approach

High performance training is approached on an athlete by athlete, team by team basis. We offer individual, small group, and team training options to accommodate the needs and budgets of our clients.

We have built out our team and services in line with the athlete centred Integrated Support Team (IST) model used to maximize the performance of Canada’s top athletes. In conjunction with our tenants and sport partners, the Oval’s IST services includes strength and conditioning, sport medical, performance testing, sport technology, and technical skill coaching. The Oval can comprise an athlete’s entire IST or can work with an athlete’s existing IST.

The Oval is a GymWorks™ training site and encourages Canadian developmental and elite athletes to make the Oval their training home.
