Best gym ever. Sydney is a great personal trainer, and my son loves his boxing class. They take all the covid protocols really seriously. The team is nice and motivated, and the installations are top class! Modern, clean and good quality equipment!

Even before they expanded to their new amazing facility (conveniently around the corner), DCS has always been an amazing community to be involved in. The DCS team (absolute legends) provide a safe, supportive space for their members to practice and get their sweat on. The trainers have so much to offer and there is always something to learn from every class they teach -- even if it's finding out you didn't know you could sweat this much. You will not regret giving it a try!!

I've trained at a lot of gyms in Vancouver and Richmond, but the best by far has been DCS. They cater to literally everyone. They have classes suited for beginners, intermediate, and advanced. The coaches are some of the best in all of Canada and everyone from the students to coaches make you feel comfortable and walk you through anything you don't understand, patience is key for a good gym. The new facility is the cleanest and most beautiful gym I've ever stepped foot in. 10/10 thank you DCS for the amazing training provided.
