Skip The Gym
Skip the Gym is a mobile kinesiology company that specializes in body composition transformations, joint mobility and muscular release, and injury recovery & prevention. After graduating the Bachelor of Kinesiology program at the University of Alberta in 2017, we (partners Kaylee De Benedetto and Julia Mayzel) started working to create a health and fitness business that brings the professional to the client. There is a growing need in the health and fitness industry to provide fitness programs, muscular release, joint mobility, and pain relief in-home, which is what inspired us to launch Skip the Gym in 2018. We take pride in using a variety of science-backed methods and techniques to provide effective solutions to each client’s needs. Our services are provided in Edmonton, AB and surrounding areas, as well as online.
