The Art of Balance was founded on three principles: Right Class: Each person comes with a unique desire, goal and level of experience. That’s why TAB has such a wide range of classes. Right Approach: Many modern machines and fads isolate muscles and focus too specifically on one aspect of physical health. We subscribe to a fitness philosophy that is more natural, fun and fulsome. Right Time: We are right here in your neighbourhood, ready to welcome you. Take an hour (or more) for yourself, step out and enjoy a class.

TAB is the vision of Rhonda Roberts (Smid)—performer of stage and screen, fitness trainer and university instructor.

Rhonda has been dancing for over 39 years—15 of that as a professional—and has been studying fitness and personal training for more than 12.

She has performed across North America and Europe in productions like the Tony® Award-Winning Disney’s The Lion King and the Tony® Award-Winning Ragtime. Similarly, she has entertained on the stages of the Stratford Festival in musicals like Guys and Dolls and Anything Goes and has many other well-known productions to her credit.

When you spend years doing 8 demanding shows a week, you have to know how to maintain your body. You also have to know how to nurture a good sense of humour. That’s what you will find at TAB—a serious session blended with fun and creativity.

Rhonda has also appeared on television and the big screen including in the Academy® Award-winning film Chicago and the dance classic Hairspray: The Movie.

She has also been a sought-after dance adjudicator across North America for the last 12 years and has spent the last 7 years instructing in the Faculty of Phys. Ed. at the University of Toronto.

Rhonda has a B.A. from McMaster, The Triple Threat Award from The Randolph Academy, a Guthrie Award from the Stratford Festival, and more recently was a Top 3 finalist for CanFitPro Fitness Professional of the Year.
