The top 10 winter fitness bootcamps in Toronto
Winter fitness bootcamps in Toronto are for those who need that extra push to stay motivated, want a break from the normal gym routine, or have a fitness end goal in mind. Once the temperature drops, many of the bootcamps you loved in the summer move indoors so you can continue kickin' butt all winter long.
Here are my picks for the top winter bootcamps in Toronto.
Best Body Boot Camp
Best Body's multiple locations around Toronto offer a community vibe that will help you stay engaged. Their workouts combine High Intensity Interval Training with functional movements and active rest, allowing you to continue burning calories even after your workout is over. They also offer nutritional support.
There are seven Fit Chicks locations around Toronto spanning from downtown to midtown, so there's really no excuse not to try out one of their bootcamp options. You can choose from various-length programs, ranging from 2 weeks to 12 weeks, to suit your schedule.
At CrossfitTO, located near Carlaw and Lakeshore, they offer four week long bootcamps where you'll be getting in 45-minute sessions, five days a week (now that's commitment). With small class sizes, you'll be getting more personalized training without paying for an actual personal trainer, and can work at your own pace at a level you're comfortable with.
Fit Body Boot Camp
If you have a specific fitness goal in mind, then Fit Body Boot Camp, located near Wellesley Station, is a great place to work your way there. With 30 minute sessions, you'll get maximum impact in minimum time, and their non-threatening atmosphere will keep you motivated.
Body Buster Fitness
The Body Buster bootcamp is one that you can take out of the gym and into your home, thanks to an online tracking system that will help you keep yourself accountable. With four locations, all within proximity to the High Park area, this boot camp incorporates a variety of different workouts, including cardio, yoga, strength training, obstacle courses and more.
Fit Feels Good Boot Camp
Fit Feels Good's six-week bootcamps are offered in the Annex, Roncesvalles, and the Danforth. Founder Oonagh Duncan was named canfitpro's Pro Trainer of the Year for 2014 - so you're definitely getting trained by some of the best. Along with the boot camps that include cardio, core work, plyometrics and much more, they also provide a meal plan.
Metro Life Fitness Boot Camp
At Metro Life Fitness, located in the Dundas and Lansdowne area, no two workouts are the same. Combining high intensity circuit training and obstacle courses with Pilates and yoga, this boot camp is a great way to start your morning - if you can drag your butt out of bed for the 6:30am workouts. (They also offer evening classes.)
Fit Family Belly Boot Camp
For all you mommies and mommies-to-be, Fit Family - with class locations in the east, west, central and midtown - is inviting for both you and your little one. Fit Family offers a variety of styles, whether you want to work on your fitness with a bun in the oven, break a sweat with baby in tow, or simply want to get into running.
Fit Factory Fitness
If you're looking for some serious discipline, then the bootcamps at Fit Factory Fitness are where it's at. You'll be getting a grueling workout courtesy of former U.S Marine Corps drill instructor Tony Austin. They currently operate out of a new gym at King and Spadina, while winter O Course bootcamps are held indoors at Monarch Park.
SDR Training Boot Camp
The SDR Training Boot Camp offers a military-style workout designed to whip that booty into shape. SDR is owned and run by canfitpro-certified personal trainer, Stephanie De Rossi, who hosts indoor training sessions at the Harbour Front Community Centre.
