With MeaVia Go Green, Break Down Barriers, Increase Accessibility and Stay Safe with Access to Local Gyms
What is MeaVia?
MeaVia has revolutionized Health and Fitness by providing Canadians Virtual access to Physiotherapy, from home, work or on the run. In order to achieve success in a Physiotherapy course of treatment a patient often requires equipment such as bands, weights, treadmills, and other equipment they may not possess. MeaVia allows for Accessible, Barrier Busting Physiotherapy by negotiating with local gyms to provide our members access to the needed equipment. All this while maintaining a minimal Green footprint, utilizing the existing gym infrastructure.
World Class Physiotherapy available at home on the run, or just down the street with access to local partnered gyms. Don’t see your gym, just ask.
Don’t let barriers stand in your way. Mobility, Language, Culture or anything else, choose the location that best suites your needs.
Buildings generate nearly 40% of global CO2 emissions. By utilizing existing infrastructure we can eliminate an estimated 23,000,000 lbs of carbon every year!
In addition to your PT/PTA monitored sessions, using local participating gyms for our course of treatment provides for confidence in the equipment used and proper safety mechanisms in place. Need help outside of our scope? Partnered gyms may offer complementary services such as personal training, yoga, and meditation for an additional taxable fee.
With nearly 200 locations Canada wide GoodLife Fitness maintains a strict corporate standard in all of its facilities. MeaVia members receive included essentials access to all but nine of those locations Canada Wide! Want greater access? Upgrade your access directly through GoodLife Fitness during signup for an additional non tax deductible fee. See FAQ for excluded locations.
What is MeaMonitoring?
MeaVia members can book their spot in a live virtual session and have their MeaVia Physiotherapist designed exercise program monitored by a Physiotherapist(PT) or Physiotherapists Assistant(PTA) who is available to provide guidance and answer program related questions in real time. These sessions virtually mimic your experience at a traditional Physios office once a course of treatment has been recommended but are conveniently accessible 5 days a week, Monday to Friday, with no monthly limit on bookings.
Book your 30min MeaMonitoring sessions at least a week in advance, between Monday and Friday, 10:00am to 2:00pm est.

Why is only a basic level of gym access included in the MeaVia membership?
MeaVia provides members with the minimal level of access to participating gyms/fitness facilities required to succeed in their Physiotherapy course of treatment.

Any upgrade access fees are outside of the MeaVia membership and payable directly to the participating facilities.
