Steve Nemethy and Sylvia Peters

Personal Trainers

Steve’s introduction in weight training started at the young age of 13, but became serious when he decided to take his basketball skills to another level. It wasn’t short after Steve began lifting weights in high school, that he started dreaming of opening his own gym facility. Over the years, he has trained as an athlete for strength, aesthetics and pain management, and came to an understanding of the important, powerful synergy between health and fitness. Steve has taken health into his own hands in working to heal the many injuries he has sustained throughout this athletic career.

Dreams fulfilled, Steve is the co-owner and head coach at Nova Fitness Private Training Studio in Halifax, Nova Scotia. As he continues to follow his passion for athletic-related fitness, Steve gives back to his community as a coach for the Halifax Citdel High School Boys Junior Varsity Basketball Team, where he inspires young men to follow their athletic dreams while emphasizing the importance of taking good care of their body in relation to health and athletic performance.

Alongside Steve, Sylvia is the other half to Nova Fitness. With over 10+ years of experience in Halifax’s fitness industry and 2 continuous years of being nominated as Halifax’s Best Personal Trainer, Sylvia coaches her clients with one strong belief – Combining exercise, nutrition and mental health is the recipe for success in achieving health and fitness goals in a healthy, sustainable manner, where one is setting themselves up for continued success.

Collagen Joint & Cartilage

“I started using Collagen Joint & Cartilage to help promote recovery from a minor patella tear. Within the first few weeks, I started noticing a difference not just with my injured knee, but all of my joints. They feel stronger, more lubricated and not as “cracky”. I’m so impressed!”

Digestion IBS

Digestion & IBS

“I have suffered from digestive issues and stomach distress for many years. Dealing with acute, sometimes severe pain and other digestive issues after eating certain foods has made me frustrated with the “enjoyment” of eating. As a result, I have to make healthy, conscious decisions when, what and where I eat. Using Digestion & IBS has really allowed me to not have to worry about the stomach issues, and finally allow me to enjoy certain foods again!”
