Who We Are, How It Started and Why You Should Join the BAF Family

Our Story

It isn’t about the destination, it’s about the journey

Back Alley Fitness was founded in 2013 as a family owned and operated strength and fitness facility. Our primary goal was to offer the best quality fitness instruction and facility in the city and foster a community of people, ‘the BAF Family’, who were as passionate about improving their lives as we are about providing the space to do that.

Now, nearly 8 years later, it is safe to say that we have accomplished both of our goals…sort of.

Our BAF family is the most welcoming, non judgemental, encouraging group of people you will ever meet and they are the reason that we are able to say we are the #1 gym in Medicine Hat. As for having the best instruction and facility, like we tell our members, ‘it isn’t about the destination, it’s about the journey’. We can never truly be THE BEST because that means we have reached the end and stopped learning or improving. We can only be better than we were the day before. It is that commitment to being better than yesterday, to finding things that challenge us, and putting in the work to be stronger than we ever thought possible, that makes Back Alley Fitness the best!

We cannot wait to discover what your best looks like and help you reach all of your health and fitness goals!
