Conquer Training and PowerWatts Kingston evolved from a successful beginning as Body Now for Mums and Kids.  Tracie Smith-Beyak, our pre and post natal guru and trainer extraordinaire, started the company in an historic limestone building in the Portsmouth Village area of Kingston.  Rodney stepped into a role with the business following a 15year career as the head strength and conditioning coach for varsity athletes at Queen’s University.  The two developed the company together, to the point where an expanded facility was needed.   Rodney purchased the company from Tracie in August of 2018 and moved the studio to its current location.  We worked diligently to maintain the history of the former aluminum recycling warehouse as we designed and renovated the space that you see in our gallery.  We are privileged to have multiple works from artist Mat Poirier enlivening our walls with colour and action. 

Our PowerWatts Kingston studio was designed from the ground up to create a clean, bright and engaging space for workouts.  With hand-built bicycles, advanced software, floor to ceiling windows, a state of the art air circulation system, Bose speakers and Samsung screens, Powerwatts Kingston offers the professional experience that clients desire.  For an exciting look at the Powerwatts system, click here
