The Club16 Concept
In what we feel is the biggest shake up of the fitness industry in B.C. in the last 20 years, our value priced health club chain, Club16 Trevor Linden Fitness & our sister health club, She’s FIT! , has started a revolution to make fitness more accessible to everyone. Our survey results of years past revealed the biggest barrier to joining a health club were high membership fees, fixed contracts and the perception that you must be fit to go to a health club.
Removing these barriers with “no contract” and “low monthly fees” as well as monitoring our health clubs for the things that make the average person uncomfortable in the fitness/health club environment, allows our health clubs to be more accessible to everyone. By doing this we feel that we can be a large part in helping more people lessen the very discouraging statistics that are now out there, for example…
The economic cost to the government of Canada is estimated at $7.1 billion when based on 18 chronic diseases linked to obesity. Current statistics in Canada from the public health agency of Canada is that one in four Canadians are considered obese. The two largest factors being lack of exercise and unhealthy diet.
Canadian statistics have revealed that over 1/3 of our population managed less than 3 – 20 minute workouts or 60 minutes of exercise a week thus leading to Coronary Heart Disease. Approximately 37% of coronary heart disease deaths were attributed to lack of physical exercise (compared with 19% tobacco & 13% high blood pressure). Statistics like these can only support the need for an affordable and non-intimidating atmosphere, encouraging those who want to or need to exercise.
Our own surveys revealed that 58% of people said protecting their long term health and preventing diseases in later life would motivate them to do more exercise, so we know the desire is there. By breaking down hurdles to fitness, we aim to encourage those who have never exercised before, as well as those of you who have, by providing an affordable and flexible health club option.

The Trevor Linden Foundation
The goal of the Trevor Linden Foundation is to encourage young people to discover their strengths and realize their potential. We partner with organizations and individuals who are engaged in youth development programs that support our values of integrity, hard work, responsibility and leadership.
The Trevor Linden Foundation, a registered charity, was established in 1997 to support the communities in which Trevor played during his 20-year NHL career. Trevor Linden is one of Canada’s most respected athletes, both on and off the ice. Known for his character, leadership and professionalism, he was recognized by his peers with the NHL’s King Clancy Memorial Award for Leadership (1997) and the NHL Foundation Player of the year (2008). Both awards recognize NHL players for leadership and significant contributions within their communities and it is these qualities that sum up Trevor Linden’s career best. In addition to the honors from the NHL, Trevor has been awarded the Order of British Columbia (2003) and the country’s highest honor, member of the Order of Canada (2010).
Over the past 15 years the Trevor Linden Foundation has partnered with charities in British Columbia, Montreal and New York to raise funds and awareness for programs that support the objectives of the foundation. In recent years, the Foundation has grown to focus on programs in undeserved areas in the communities that have supported Trevor throughout his career as a Vancouver Canuck. Local projects include the YMCA-YWCA of the Central Okanagan ‘Strong Kids Campaign’, the Vancouver Sun’s Adopt-a-School Program, The boys Club Network, and, in partnership with the Vancouver Canucks, ‘The Trevor Linden Community Spirit Scholarship’.
