What’s your fitness goal? Whether it’s to lose fat, gain strength, train for your favourite sport, complete an Ironman, or improve your overall health, our INLIV personal training team can get you there with the help of our medically-based fitness assessment.

Utilizing a wide range of medical screening tests, blood tests and health evaluation, our fitness assessment goes far beyond what you’ll get at a regular gym or workout facility. And that helps your results go far beyond, too! It all starts with an extensive assessment to establish your health benchmarks, determine specific limitations and challenges you face, and set a clear plan in place to move you along your wellness path.

Shingles and the new vaccine

Shingles and the new vaccine

By Dr. Ralph Strother | Medical Doctor | INcare | HEALTH

It often starts as an unusual pain, maybe some tingling… and then a rash sets in. Shingles! While it may be common (almost one in three Canadians may be affected by shingles), it can be quite painful. And, too often, some fail to realize that the pain from shingles can last for months – long after the rash has healed.

As a physician, I have been watching Shingrix – the newest vaccine against shingles – through the late Phase III trials and approval. Interestingly, Canada was the first country to approve the new vaccine, and our physician team here at INLIV had it on order as soon as the announcement of its approval for use in Canada in October 2017.
