We’re Here to Help You Improve Your Life

I’m Wendall Hughes, founder, owner, operator, and head personal trainer at Home Fitness for Real People, a division of Wendall’s Fitness.  On this page, I’ll tell you about me, my home fitness coaches, and the company I created to deliver the best home fitness in the Ottawa-Gatineau area.  My home programs are designed for real people like you and designed to fit into your real life.

My Philosophy and Passion:  Putting Experience to Work for You
I am passionate about health and fitness and am committed to my clients.  My satisfaction rests solely on helping you achieve your fitness and lifestyle goals.

Our trainer understood our objectives from the beginning. He listened and developed a customized program for us. He has taught us how to eat better (without going on a diet), have a balanced lifestyle, and pushes us just enough not too get discouraged! —Caroline and Jean-François.

My Background:  Letting You Benefit from My Life in Fitness
Since I was a teenager, I have been a marathon runner.  I have taken my interest in fitness to working in the military, in sports retailing, and in owning my own fitness studio.  Since 1993, I have been a full-time personal trainer, working with thousands of clients for hundreds of thousands of hours.  

I’m certified by the American Council on Exercise, the world’s largest non-profit fitness certification organization; it’s recognized industry-wide as the standard for fitness certification.

My life is full, and with Wendall's positive and gentle motivational style, I have achieved more successful results than I believed I ever could.  Wendall lives by what he believes in. —Maria

In 1993, I established the forerunner to Home Fitness for Real People so that I could bring more people the best in home fitness.  While I started alone, I now have a number of trainers who work with me to deliver Home Fitness for Real People. 

My cholesterol levels are normal now.  I want to thank you for your advice and support. —Doug
