About Us

Welcome to Synergee!

We are passionately committed to our mission – to inspire and motivate people to excellence in life through a healthy and fit lifestyle.

We are a locally owned and operated family business.

 Our story

Synergee Fitness was built on a foundation of strong family values.

Gina has dedicated her life to being a leader in the health and fitness industry while keeping her family cared for and close. After years of working as a personal trainer, group fitness leader, entrepreneur, and single mom of 3 on top of it all, she had the vision to open her own facility that would bring health and wellness to the community of Thunder Bay. In 2011, Synergee’s doors opened; and the whole family came along for the ride!

Today, Gina manages the gym operations and continues to coach; Joey teaches Spin and he is President of his self-started company – Synergee, sister company to Synergee Fitness Worldwide – that sells fitness equipment online; Jess supervises daily operations and does personal and group training; and Jenni runs her entrepreneurial baking business, Superior Bakes, at the gym and throughout Thunder Bay, and facilitates classes! Even grandbaby Reese is part of the team and comes for regular visits!

Our familial atmosphere makes Synergee a very special place to workout. As our Synergee Community has grown, we’ve expanded and added more amazing staff to our roster. We aim to make everyone who walks through our doors feel like a welcomed part of the family.
