30 Minute Hit Port Moody
30 Minute Hit, is a high-intensity fitness concept that offers a fun, fast-paced, and convenient boxing, kickboxing, self-defense circuit designed for women. We cater to all ages, fitness levels and our no-class time schedule allows members to workout whenever is most convenient for them, allowing members with even the most hectic schedules to find time for fitness.
30 Minute Hit is a Canadian franchise founded in 2004 in North Vancouver, where Laura was a member. Laura was the very first franchisee that opened in the Port Coquitlam location and later opened up in Port Moody. Alayna worked as a trainer at both locations before partnering up with Laura at Port Moody.
Our passion is helping women by empowering their fitness. It has always been to create a non-intimidating supportive environment that allows women to come together in a positive, healthy, and empowering way. The excitement they have when they get to share their accomplishments or how the HIT changed their lives impacts you in the most beautiful way.
Our Mission & Values
Our members keep us motivated to keep going. We strive to be the most positive 30 minutes of their day. The community of women that the Hit has created empower and uplift one another. Without their support, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
Our mission has always been to provide a safe community of acceptance. All ages, all fitness levels are welcome. We created an environment in which women can exercise and learn skills through martial arts. Our vision was to offer more flexibility for exercise. Short on time? Our circuit is a 30-minute high intensity designed workout, making it quick and effective. Can’t make it to an exercise class? We offer no class times. You show up anytime during our hours and get 30 minutes to workout with a certified 30 Minute Hit trainer. We know what becoming a Hit member meant to all of us. It changed our lives and made fitness fun! We want to do that for others.
Why the Tri-Cities?
We chose the Tri-Cities because we all live here. We love the connectedness of Port Moody. It’s more quaint than the surrounding cities. We really feel people that live in Port Moody love where they live and are a health-minded community. Having access to beautiful nature walks around the inlet, many nearby hikes, and the close proximity to transit makes it really a hidden gem.
How we provide value to the Tri-Cities?
Every October, we participate in our Kick The *&%! Out of Cancer fundraiser. We run fundraising events all month long, and end the month off with a pub night at St James Well Pub. All proceeds raised go to the BC Cancer Foundation for women’s cancer. This year, unable to run our events due to the pandemic, we have continued to support local events such as firefighters pancake breakfast, school & team fundraising events. We also support the food bank every Christmas and sponsor a family.
Some of the awards or recognition we have received for contributing to the Tri-Cities include:
- Nominee for Business Resilience Award
- 2019 Spike Awards nominee for Business of the year
- 2017 Spike Awards nominee for Customer Service
- A-List Best Fitness Studio in 2017 & 2018
How can the community support you?
Our community can support us by continuing to stay healthy, being kind to one another, and staying informed. We have already seen health and well-being have substantial negative effects since the pandemic began. We want the best for our community. We encourage you to stay active. If you are looking for a gym, find a routine that makes you feel safe and supported.
We personally have worked hard to keep our members and staff safe since reopening. We operate with limited capacity, maintain social distancing, have our trainers wearing masks, and wipe all equipment after each use. The community can support us with remote check-ins from your car to eliminate groupings, and by always wearing your boxing gloves to limit contact with equipment.
