PACEYOURSELF WELLNESS CENTRE
We are an outpatient rehabilitation center staffed with physical therapists, massage therapists, and an athletic trainer.
We believe that during rehabilitation, the patient should be educated by their therapist in order to be able to maintain maximum flexibility and pain-free living long after our work ends.
Our therapists have successfully worked with all types of injuries and we work on patients of any age. We have specialized programs for youth athletics as well as pregnancy. Please see our services page for more information.
Tony Pace grew up in the UK and spent 18 years in the British military before moving to Canada with his wife, Angela. An active person with a passion for cycling and running, Tony loves all of the recreational opportunities that are available in Kitimat. He enjoys taking advantage of the many local trails whenever he has the chance.
Owning a gym and combined with a Wellness Centre was a long time dream of Tony’s, so when a local gym and fitness business went up for sale, Tony knew that it was his chance to bring his dream into reality. Pace Yourself Fitness opened in 2014, and now known as Paceyourself Wellness Centre offering Physiotherapy and Massage Therapy, Tony is able to help inspire others to better health and fitness. “I love motivating people,” he says, adding that “everybody is equal in this gym. Whatever size you are, nobody will judge you.” Instead, the important thing is getting exercise and pursuing an active lifestyle in order to achieve better long-term health.
Tony and Angela appreciate the small-town lifestyle that Kitimat offers. In addition to its wonderful outdoor opportunities and scenery, Kitimat is home to friendly, amicable people who genuinely care for each other and their town. “Everybody pulls together in a time of crisis,” Tony says. It is a special type of camaraderie and friendship that you just can’t find in a big city.
