With many gym facilities in the Cowichan Valley still shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic, one local fitness instructor has taken her sessions online.

Monni Savory is a trainer at the gym facility at the Cowichan Aquatic Centre, but it isn’t likely that the gym will be opening any time before Thanksgiving due to the pandemic, if then.

So Savory has taken her personal and group training services online, and with many people normally heading back to the gym once their kids go back to school in September, she wants people to know those service are still available even if the gym they usually frequent remains closed.

She offers a variety of options, but the most popular are the 40-minute boot camps online via Zoom that people can do from their own homes, either live, or on demand when it suits them.

Savory’s prices are reasonable, at $28 a month or $4 a class, so that hopefully she can maintain her online enterprise when life returns to normal and people go back to the gym.

Savory can be contacted through her website at

“I’m attracting more people to my online fitness programs every month,” she said.

“It’s nice to see new faces and some old ones that I haven’t seen in awhile.”
