Who We Are
Welcome to Playform Youth Fitness, where our mission is to nurture the next generation of baseball stars! Our program is specifically designed to help young athletes excel in baseball, focusing on enhancing performance, skill, and physical fitness.
Playform Youth Fitness is the evolution of the well-regarded SminkFIT Incorporated, a fitness business that made an impact before its closure during the pandemic.
With renewed vigour and a focused redirection to baseball, we are excited to bring back the expertise and commitment that defined our original venture.
Our founder, Marta Fowler, inspired by her experiences as a mother during the pandemic, has shaped Playform Youth Fitness to meet the unique needs of young baseball players.
Seeing her own teenager struggle with isolation and a lack of physical activity, Marta realized the critical importance of a supportive environment dedicated to physical and mental health, particularly in sports like baseball.
At Playform Youth Fitness, we offer specialized workouts and a nurturing community tailored for young baseball enthusiasts. Our training programs are designed to improve physical strength and endurance and the specific skills essential for baseball, such as batting, pitching, and fielding techniques.
Our goal is to empower young athletes to build a robust foundation in health and baseball performance, fostering the development of great players and future leaders of the sport. Join us at Playform Youth Fitness, and let's hit a home run in nurturing the baseball legends of tomorrow!
Hi, I'm Marta
As the founder of a private fitness business, I have dedicated my life to helping others achieve their fitness goals. My journey towards fitness began as an adolescent, struggling to cope with the stress and anxiety related to that stage of life.
I found a way to channel my energy and emotions positively through fitness. Working out became a source of strength and resilience, and I always knew that I wanted to help others find the same solace and empowerment that fitness had brought me.
I encountered a few bumps on my way to becoming a fitness business owner. Still, fast forward to today, and I am proud to say that I have built a business that provides a space for my clients, regardless of age, to improve their physical and mental well-being.
In the summer of 2021, I had to make the tough decision to close my private fitness studio, SminkFIT Incorporated, due to the pandemic. But I refused to let this devastating setback stop me. With hard work, determination, and the unwavering support of my intimate tribe, I am thrilled to officially announce the opening of Playform Youth Fitness, a private gym in downtown Hamilton where I've been conducting daily strength & conditioning training to Ontario Baseball Academy athletes since October, 2022.
As a coach to nearly 100 young athletes and mother to a teenager, I know firsthand the importance of instilling healthy habits in our children from an early age.
Through my fitness journey, I have seen the incredible impact of exercise on sports performance, physical and mental health, and I am excited to share this with a new generation.
Playform Youth Fitness empowers young people to build healthy habits supporting their sport-specific fitness aspirations while creating a culture of wellness and positivity in our community.
I am deeply grateful for the support and encouragement of my family, friends, and clients throughout this journey. Your belief in me and my vision has given me the strength and resilience to overcome every obstacle. I can't wait to share my new training studio with all of you and continue to make a positive impact on the lives and performance of young athletes in our community.
Thank you for your trust and support, and I look forward to seeing you soon.
