99 Sudbury

Posted by Tim / Posted on February 25, 2008

99 Sudbury
99 Sudbury may have mythical status as Toronto's famed after hours club, but these days the only music here is the alt rock infused by the fitness club that now claims its name.

Under construction since its launch in early 2007, 99 Sudbury is slowly building out the space into a state of the art fitness complex. At the time of this post, there's still much work to be done. Scheduled for completion later in 2008 are four new squash courts (three singles and a North American double), yoga and fitness studios and three restaurants.

Still, 99 Sudbury is in working order and growing its membership. There are three rooms featuring free weights, machines and cardio equipment; and a not-yet-completed (but functional) fitness studio home to spin, yoga and aerobic classes.

Rates and Initiation Fee

Monthly rates range between $55 and $65 a month. There is no initiation fee.

Towels, Lockers and Showers

The current, temporary lockers and showers are a bit small and cramped. Don't expect too many frills until the new change rooms emerge from the construction phase. Towels are available and included in the membership fee. 99 Sudbury does not currently offer overnight lockers but will have laundry service at some point in the future.

Personal Training, Yoga and Spin

A fleet of spin bikes occupy one corner of the brand new, operable (but still under construction) studio which is also home to ashtanga, hatha yoga and pilates. Most classes take place after work and are included in the membership. Personal training rates are $75 for a one hour session.

Food and Juice

Current offerings are limited but the plan calls for construction of three restaurants with a wide selection of healthy snacks, meals and drinks. A restaurant called Oasi will be moving into the former home of Mildred Pierce but until then nearby nourishment alternatives are left to Innergolf and Queen Street.

99 Sudbury Cardio

Worth Mentioning

The gym is definitely a work in progress. The construction schedule appears to be a bit of a moving target so don't expect all the new bells and whistles to fall into place imminently. One of the owners owns the building (also home to Innergolf and gQ Spa). The other is a former squash pro and has worked in the fitness business for the last twenty years.

Days and Hours of Operation

At the time of this post the gym is open Monday to Friday, 6:00am - 10pm; Saturday and Sundays from 9am - 6pm. It's always best to check the web site for the most up to date info.

A good value if you factor in that all classes are included in monthly membership.

This is one of the coolest spots in the city. Gym, spa, indoor golf, restaurant, health center(chiro, etc...)
It rocks. When the patio is open next month it will be an awesome spot to hang out too. U have to check it out. Great plus for the area.

This is going to be a great club, however as it is still in the construction phase and absolutely overpriced for the services currently offered. The hours on the weekend are not convenient at all. However the staff is very friendly and you can certainly tell that after the construction is complete it will be a very nice club.. but once again WAY TO EXPENSIVE FOR ITS CURRENT OFFERINGS!

"Rates and Initiation Fee

40 initiation fee if you decide not to go on contract!

This club has promised things were going to get done for a long time without delivering. I have switched to Goodlife.

99 Sudbury is the WORST gym I ever joined. I was a member for 5 months. When I joined, the owner promised construction would be done within weeks. But alas, this place is still not completed! Try to have a great workout while dust and noise from endless construction abound. Anytime they book an event at this gym, classes always get canceled, which is pretty frequently during events like the Film Festival. The employees look miserable, and no one calls or emails you back if you have a question or concern. I am still fighting to get money back on a canceled service. Go to Goodlife at Liberty, or even better, the Crossfit bootcamp at Carlaw and Dudnas, this is the best workout you will ever have.

I think it looks like an awesome gym... I would like to know more about the squash courts though. How is that going by the way???

I quit this gym after 10 months...Constantly being promised that construction would be over, squash courts would be put in and on and on. Not to mention a steam room the size of a toilet stall that was always broken and cold water in the shower. The only good thing about this place is that it was empty most of the time. They are more interested in hosting events than running a viable gym, that is until the condos surrounding the place get built. STAY AWAY......!!!

Words cannot even explain how horrible this gym is and the headache I have had with them. Do yourself a favour and DO NOT JOIN. Bar none the worst customer service experience I have ever had. Oh and they double billed me months.

The construction is over, the decor is super cool west queen west, the facility is clean, the change rooms are awsome , the staff is friendly, and the social events they have are always fun. This is more than a gym, it is a sports-social club, its goal is to keep trying to join the neighbourhood together,and create a local place to hang alone or with old friends, or meet new friends not just another corporate chain after your monthly frees

I think this gym SUCKS. The gym is dirty. The machines were often broken with empty promises of being fixed. There was no air conditioning. They also billed me after I quit the gym. Called several times and either no one picked up or I was told I would get a call back from the manager and never did. Terrible customer service. Don't join. Bad Bad Mistake.

Wow, sounds like the owner or marketing goon must've been doing some online image management. It's more than a gym, it's a sports-social club! <guffaw>

Warning... If you see this man in the fitness industry or martial arts. Stay away. He is deceiving, defiant and ruthless. He will take your money among other things and run. He is the biggest corrupt human being. His name is STEVE CHARLES WILSON of Durham Region.

Wondering about these reviews Not a bad gym at all. Super cheap. Free parking. Towels. Staff is exceptionally nice, always greet me and are helpful. There is some conflict with the event space though. Have had girls walk in on me naked in the men's locker, unfortunately for them. Events definitely trump monthly dues-payers, but it only happens a couple of times a month. Glad I joined.

DO not join this gym. I am a current member who is anxiously waiting for my membership to expire. The staff are very rude and I tried to suspend my membership for 3 weeks via the phone due to an injury that I sustained at the gym, when I got back from recovery found out by management that they do not suspend memberships due to injuries, only for monthly intervals. Bullshit. 99% of the staff there are snobs. Like dudes, you guys work in a gym... you guys were C- students who only got an A in gym class :(

Hey Cory sorry to hear about what happened. Not all personal trainers are C- students, I have a degree in medical physics and worked in management prior to becoming a trainer. I'm sorry in this case, they didn't treat you in the right way but don't give up on your fitness there are other good gyms out there...

Was an okay Gym, it has enough quipments but some are old and rusty, the free weight room is not bad. The cable crossover must have been the first one ever invented during 1940s, its that old. It is a weird layout like maze but its a love or hate gym. It is free, not that packed, but very limited isolated machines that need serious upgrades. I dont think the management gives a crap about the gym as their main business seems to be running events, and gym is more of an add on.

the owner and owners wife are nice but very poor customer service here. They have very dumb receptionist Stephanie I believe, super dumb phony cunt who need to work on her fake smile or don't smile at all. There was an error in the billing cycle, she is too dumb to understand and deny access to the gym.

Honestly I was going to bring some of my co-workers and friends here as it is an okay independent gym, but once I got fed up with their attitudes and slurs, just simply denying access to someone when they have the last months deposit as well, oh ya about the last months deposit u can forget about it. If you join the gym at the end of the month, like 28 th or 30th, u still get charged for the whole month, u wud think u will use the gym until the end of the month but nope, according to our dumb Stephanie it is not a whole only 2 days and she'll deny access to the gym. so according to her, the money you paid for the 28 days somehow equals to 2 days in total. I couldn't even hold a valid sensible conversation with this woman and decided its pointless to continue as she just couldnt process this simple math.

Seriously, If I were the boss I would get rid of some poorly skilled staff like her who would drive the business and customers away and hire someone who is basically good at something. anything. Seriously it is a job where you sit there all day, and smile if u can fake it, and hand towels, and take toilet breaks, thats it.... If you are not good at this, you are not supposed to make even minimum wage. So I was ripped off for the last month's deposit which is a bummer. Cuz I only feel sad for the owners who are printing brochures and trying to keep this alive and the bad staff like dumb cunt Stephanie with no people skills, ruin it for them.

One thing I love about this gym is its men's washroom. It is surreal and artistic. God knows why there are 2 game machines over there, but sometimes I go to the gym to use the washroom haha...They had MMA classes for a bit, it was cancelled due to some issues.

Other than that, If you are serious bodybuilder, it wouldn't hurt to have this gym as a secondary gym if you wanna drop heave barbells.


I got nothing more to say. Yeah avoid if you like being ripped off by poor management and also avoid if you dont like to deal with dumb cunts.
