About Us

Vernon's Destination for Health & Fitness

Come As You Are

Working out is key to a healthy life, but for many, the gym can be an intimidating and scary place. We’re here to change all that. Our founder, Goldy Sidhu, started World Health & Fitness in 1997 with a vision: to create a fun, welcoming atmosphere for everybody (and every BODY), regardless of age, weight, or fitness level. It’s that vision that has allowed us to change the lives of thousands of members in Vernon and the North Okanagan valley.

Locally Owned & Operated

No corporate big-box mindset here. World Health & Fitness is 100% locally owned and operated. We’re proud to be a staple and supporter of the Vernon and greater North Okanagan, championing healthy and fit lifestyles for our members for over twenty-five years.

“I wanted to create a community where people of all fitness levels feel welcome, encouraged, and supported in their journey.”

—Goldy Sidhu
