The Prime Difference

We have a passion for developing the next generation of athletes, ensuring they are training effectively. We’re here for anyone who has a goal to become healthier, more fit, and live life to the fullest.

Whether looking to become more active and run your first 5K, or you’re already a competitive athlete, we have the expertise and equipment to ensure you get the most out of your training time. 

Here at Prime’ Performance and Therapy, our training philosophy is dictated by the athlete’s needs. Beginning with an initial assessment, our professional performance coaches will come up with a comprehensive program tailored to the athlete’s specific needs.

Our objective with every Prime’ athlete is the same: Teach them to do things properly and motivate them to challenge themselves to achieve more from every training session.

Our Mission

We help people take control of their health so they can Achieve More and Reach Higher, by combining therapeutic care, fitness training and empowerment to our clients.


Our Vision

To create the Island’s most dynamic and premier health facilities while being a contributing and active member of the communities in which we serve.

Our History

PRIME’ was established in Nanaimo, BC, in 2012 by Clay Smith with the belief that ‘human performance is for all of us’. We moved locations in 2015 and we’re proud of our home at #4-1970 Island Diesel Way in Nanaimo. We continually expand the size of our facility as well as our offerings. Rather than limiting ourselves to an established single industry such as health care, corporate wellness, or sports performance, we’ve created a holistic performance platform for everyone. Prime’ is motivated to help people take control of their health so they can achieve more and reach higher. We offer fitness programs for Pro, Semi-Pro and Amateur sports teams, as well as sport specific personal training, adult strength and conditioning and weight loss programs.

To complete any client’s journey to wellness, we offer: Yoga, Chiropractic Care, Massage Therapy, Athletic Therapy, Kinesiology, Acupuncture and Nutrition. We are an authorized service provider for ICBC Motor Vehicle Accident clients, and are also able to direct bill our clinicians services to most 3rd party health care insurers.

Make the life changing decision to prioritize yourself.
