what our members say about our
Gym in Coquitlam

This is subjective. My two ongoing posture deficiencies are shrugging and stooping. They probably go hand in hand but to gain better fitness results in going forward I am working on reducing the tension from my shoulders and keeping my back and neck in a straight line. Efforts to improve on my own have not been very successful. I now believe that your RMC/core work can play a significant role in changing this. Discussion with both you and Toni have motivated me as to the success of this for my particular situation. Our one hour in RMC provides me with a new looseness in neck, shoulders and back. Your consistency, while adding new movements, together with your determination and your voice over is one of the highlights of my week. The strength of your convictions is infectious and I share many of your beliefs. The core work add on is the polish. As I get to know you better, I am more aware of you intention which I view as well thought out. Better sleep, reduced pain, and new posture awareness…….all good.

If you are looking for an able, honest and progressive trainer; look no further than Kumar Bandyo. I have been working with Kumar for the past six years and it has changed my life immeasurably. From personalized work out programs, evaluation, testing and support; you are in the best care that you possibly could be to become the best you that you can be. We all have to do the work to attain fitness, but there is no better guide along that path than Kumar, he is just that talented, caring, determined, disciplined and a few thousand other positive adjectives as well. If you want to reach you goals and are tired of fighting your own internal motivations (and demotivation’s) you are ready for Peak Synergy Fitness.

The reason for my note is twofold. Firstly, I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your support and training. I am so thrilled to share that my ankle feels the strongest it has in a long time – I was able to do side and front lunges and run without ANY pain yesterday! Thank you, Maria. You have truly made a big difference for my health and body. So much so, I would like to have my father come and see you. He has been through a lot – with multiple back surgeries, as he continues to fight cancer. However, I feel you are the perfect person to get my dad’s energy back on track. It actually is his birthday today, and I went ahead and purchased him 5 personal training sessions. Thanks again, Maria. You are really great at what you do!


I have been privileged to know Kumar Bandyo for most of my professional life as a sports physiotherapist. We worked as part of a multidisciplinary rehabilitation team for people with complicated and/or chronic injuries. He is a confident, knowledgeable and competent Kinesiologist with a unique ability to motivate and encourage his clients. After working together for many years, Kumar’s professional path took him on new adventures as did mine. We remained friends and have always asked one another for professional advise on clients, training, injury prevention and treatment. He introduced me to self defence and martial arts of which, under his training and support, I became quickly addicted. Kumar continually searches for ways to improve his knowledge and his credentials are second to none.

This says it all… Happy Easter Monday Maria! I just wanted to share my good news with you! i reached and exceeded my dance goal this weekend – it only took me 6 months instead of the full year — I made finals in a WCS dance contest which was my goal. It even gets better – I came in 4 th place which means I receive 2 points! OMG! Thank you so much for my workout plan – it has made such a difference to my quality of movement! On a sadder note — the mastering of the TGU is coming along very slowly but I will keep on working on those too! Thanks again


I first approached Kumar in 2012 when I wanted to participate in my first obstacle race. Up until then I maintained an average to fairly active lifestyle; I hiked regularly, ran at least a couple times a week and on occasion went for a swim. I knew though that this obstacle race was going to include movements and strength demonstration I had yet to ever challenge myself with. After a consultation with Kumar and explaining to him the elements of my event, along with my fitness goals in general, he was able to put together a routine that included a multitude of strength, cardio, core and balance development, coordination and endurance conditioning. I was extremely pleased with my performance for that race and was so impressed by his instruction that I referred my wife to also see Kumar for her fitness training. Kumar’s training sticks, is not complicated, and helped me to reach my fitness goals.

The start of any fitness program is likely to bring anyone a lot of challenges. From sore muscles on a daily basis to the struggles of new dietary restrictions, it’s no wonder that so many who start a fitness plan end up quitting within just a few months. Additionally, discouragement can also come from the initial weight gain that comes with starting a new workout program; this is due to the inflammation from micro tears and the breakdown of muscle tissue. And then there’s the added struggle that our minds force us to suffer: our self-image. When joining a gym, a true concern for most is what others think of them.The following are nine tips on how to be successful at the gym, including ways to combat the general anxieties of working out in the presence of others:

1. Know the Basics

Do some research on a few basic exercises and practice them to perfection in the comfort of your own home. Once you go to the gym, your confidence in these movements will be enough to forget about any imagined judgments surrounding you. Be sure to perfect the basics before progressing to more advanced workouts.

Some practical basic techniques to complete include:

  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • Planks
  • Push-ups

2. Consider Group Fitness or Personal Training

Along with the high energy and the fun nature of fitness classes, the ease of having a class instructor is also a great benefit. Classes like Zumba or Turbo Kick are both enjoyable ways to burn calories. Some gyms even offer glow in the dark yoga classes. Once you feel confident in the movements taught in class, you can incorporate the elements that you like into your workout. If you feel too shy about starting a class, standing in the back can help relieve some of that anxiety. Make sure you can still see yourself in the mirror, though! If you want to get serious, many gyms have great deals on personal training as well. These experts will be particularly useful in acquainting you with specific equipment and their various potential uses!

3. Avoid the Crowd

Aside from the benefit of feeling like no one is watching you, working out during off hours also gives you the luxury of using any and all of the equipment you want! In general, early mornings guarantee an empty gym, especially on the weekends.

4. Do Your Research

The abundance of health and fitness information available online can be overwhelming, especially if you’re just starting at the gym. Lots of misinformation is also out there! Don’t mistake someone for an expert just because they work out. Always be on the lookout for credible sources and certified professionals. For example, is an excellent resource for learning proper form.If you’re more of a hands-on type of learner, gym staff will be happy to show you how to do an exercise. It is important to learn the basics correctly, as consistently working with the wrong form can result in serious injury in the long run.5. Set a ScheduleCommit to particular gym days and stick to it! Starting slowly and realistically is important. Perhaps, in the beginning, one to three days a week will be the necessary amount. Mark it on your calendar to make it feel like an official commitment. If you exceed the number of workouts in your weekly plan, then that’s great!

6. Have a Plan

Stepping into the gym without a plan will likely result in a mediocre workout. Be sure that you know exactly what your routine entails before stepping foot in the gym. It is wise to have your entire week planned to work with your schedule. For example, assigning leg day to Monday allows your lower body muscles the entire week to recover. And sometimes, you need a whole week to recover from leg day! The rest of the week, you can give your lower body a break with upper body and core workouts.

7. Find a Gym Buddy

Having a workout buddy will hold you to your commitments and keep you accountable. If you feel unmotivated, perhaps all you need is some encouragement from your workout partner. It is important to be selective with your gym buddy, though! If you find yourself talking to each other more than working out, then perhaps you need to choose a different gym buddy!

8. Try New Things

To ensure that you don’t plateau, it is important that you have different workouts available. Martial arts, rock climbing and pole dancing are all excellent ways to train your muscles while also having fun. If you don’t like it, move on! The important thing is to add some variety and continue finding different exercises.

9. Have Fun

It seems cliché, but it’s important. If the gym starts feeling like a chore, you will likely quit soon. Once you’ve tried new things and identify the things that you enjoy, plan to incorporate some of those things in your life. Instead of hitting the gym on a Wednesday night, maybe call up a friend and try that new rock climbing place in town. Make sure exercise is something you look forward to and not something that you dread. Continue finding things that you love to do; life is too short to be mundane.
