Our Mission

Fortius Sport & Health is an integrated athlete development centre strengthened through philanthropy and focused on optimizing human performance for life.


​​​​​​​​​​1 in 4 people in BC will experience back pain at some point in their life, and 25% of these will develop chronic back pain. The BackSTRONG program helps people to take control of their pain and get back to the life they want. ​

​​BackSTRONG is a program that seeks to help people with chronic back, sacroiliac joint, and/or pelvic pain to live their lives with a little more ease, and get back to physical activity.

Program Description 

BackSTRONG is run in two phases, each consisting of 4 one-hour sessions:

Phase One is run by a physiotherapist, who will take participants through postural training, core activation, breathing exercises, and general education. Through these sessions, participants will learn tools for the self-management of their condition.

Phase Two is run by a strength and conditioning coach and supported by a physiotherapist. In this phase, participants will learn how to move more functionally and more confidently.

This program is hosted in the Beijing movement Studio​ - our premier movement education space.​


BackSTRONG is for adults who have had to scale back activities due to back, sacroiliac joint, or pelvic pain. You may be sedentary and want to get back to some form of physical activity, or unable to push yourself further in your training, due to a chronic injury.

Participants can be referred in directly from any Fortius practitioner through the Integration Centre (chiropractors, registered massage therapists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, or sports medicine).

Participants do not have to stop training or treatment with other practitioners to join BackSTRONG.


BackSTRONG is an eight-week program:

  • Phase one - $70 per session (4-weeks)
  • Phase two - $35 per session (4-weeks)

Total price is $ 420​​*

This can be claimed through most extended health care plans.
*Please note all program fees are due in full before or on the first session.​
