The Best Fitness Clubs in Toronto

Posted by Guest Contributor / May 4, 2012

Fitness Clubs TorontoThe best fitness clubs in Toronto are a necessity in our land of wonderful food. As we well know, there are many dining options that result in bigger curves. Fear not, friends. Our city of plenty has a bounty of fitness facilities designed to make our butts smaller (or at least perkier).

There's probably something beyond vanity that attracts us to the idea of working out. It may be the accomplishment we feel after spinning like a hamster on a wheel (I mean, a spinning bike). It may be a short workout followed by a long sauna - both make you sweat and one makes you happy with relatively little output. I don't judge, but I do, however, have you covered.

Here's a list of the best fitness clubs (gyms) in Toronto.

Goodlife Liberty Village

Goodlife Liberty Village

Liberty Village isn't hurting for fitness options these days, and this Goodlife rises to the top by providing a great location with a clean, modern feel and friendly staff. There's a lot of space, a lot of machines and, according to gym goers, a lot of cute people (but it’s all about the workout, right?). The classes range from Zumba to yoga to Bodypump. It's also open 24/7 in case you need to get in a 3 a.m. workout or make sure you're getting your daily recommended dose of squats. Memberships start at $60 per month with an annual contract. More »

The Yorkville Club

The Yorkville Club

Be prepared to confront a lot of Lululemon. This Hazelton Lanes gym is sleek and eye popping, like that condo your real estate agent showed you that was just beyond your price bracket. There are a lot of yoga options offered here (including hot yoga), and popular cardio classes are all included with the membership. The VIP experience also includes concierge service (where they can book your post-workout restaurant) and flat screen televisions on the athletic equipment. Grab a smoothie at Whole Foods on the way out, because, well, you can. Annual memberships start at $139/month plus $349 initiation fee. More »

Totum King West

Totum King West

At King and Spadina, this smaller club (11,000 square feet) is chock full of character. Brick-lined walls and some of the best personal trainers in the city amount to a gym where people, one might even call them athletes, come to seriously work out. The instructors are top notch and the class schedule provides hourly variety. The yoga instructor on Monday evening is magnificent (not that it's me or anything). Totum also has a second location in Rosedale. Annual membership $999 plus tax, paid monthly. More »

Toronto Athletic Club

Toronto Athletic Club

You could go to the top of the CN Tower to get your views, or you could just go to the top of the Toronto Athletic Club. Lake views and a 38th floor penthouse pool deservedly draws the suit-wearing Bay street crowd. There's a large spinning studio with flat screens for virtual touring, squash courts, and a restaurant that will make you feel like you're in the first class lounge at the airport (in a good way). Annual fees start at $1320, while initiation fees vary but start at $250. More »

Miles Nadal JCC

Miles Nadal JCC

This Jewish Community Centre in the heart of the Annex offers over 75 classes a week, a gravity studio and an indoor running track and pool. This newly renovated spot offers modern design, and staff so friendly they offered cake to one member on her fitness assessment. She declared it may have been a test, but either way it's an excellent example of the expression “have your cake and eat it too.” Monthly fees for adults start at $77 plus HST, with an initiation fee of $59 for singles or $99 for a family. More »

Xtreme Couture

Xtreme Couture

Etobicoke seems like a friendly area of the city, close to good schools, good Turkish food and apparently UFC fighters. Yes, they train here. There's also Muay Thai, wrestling and boxing on offer, as well as spinning, and the most extreme (sorry, I meant Xtreme. Damn you, spellchecker!) forms of yoga (hot and ashtanga). Those with a fighting spirit are welcome here, with an indoor cage ready to handle your rush-hour aggression. Memberships start at $26/month when you commit to 15 months. More »

Dynamic Conditioning Centre

Dynamic Conditioning Centre

This downtown gym near Yonge and Wellesley promotes fun. Remember when you were a kid and you hung on the monkey-bars or jumped rope or beat someone up without calling it exercise? Welcome to adult recess. In this gym there are monkey bars and sleds and fire hoses. You can even literally bounce off the wall with a ball and rope. There are no classes that are machine dependent (like spinning) because you are the machine, as you always knew you were. Basic memberships start at $100/month for a one year contract. More »

LA Fitness

LA Fitness

People in LA seem especially well-groomed. Their teeth are whiter and their hair is shiner, or at least that is what most television shows like us to believe. Fortunately for Torontonians, the new machines at LA Fitness gleam like California teeth. There are many classes on offer, some as early as 6 a.m. so that you can always make time for perfecting your beach body. And if you already have it, why not make use of the sauna and juice bar? Memberships start at $29.95/month with a $25 initiation fee. More »

Pure Fitness

Pure Fitness

In the Leaside area, this fitness facility offers 30,000 square feet of space for you to sweat in. Group exercise, yoga, Pilates, spinning and the usual are on offer as well as unusual classes like Dance Party (how it sounds) and Socasize (African and Caribbean dance moves). There's a daycare on-site so that busy moms can get a workout while their kids wear someone else out. Membership rates begin at $49/month. More »



Nicole / May 4, 2012 at 01:15 pm
Dynamic Conditioning Centre?!? Seriously? That was the dirtiest, most disgusting club I've ever been to. I asked them if they had a water fountain or anything to refill my water bottle and they told me that there are sinks in the bathrooms. Staff isn't all that competent either...
james / May 4, 2012 at 01:57 pm
GoodLife isn't bad but the recent influx of cross-fitters is annoying. When some guy is on one of the only bench presses doing sit-ups for 30 minutes straight or a sled-pull with a mat down the aisle so no one can pass it gets annoying. A couple of the trainers are total douches too. It's better at off-peak hours. The weekend is just a zoo.

sarah / May 4, 2012 at 02:32 pm
Totum on King is the best!!!!!! I've tried Goodlife, The Y, etc., and Totum is far and away the best gym in the city.

The West End YMCA is amazing. Much better than some of the gyms on this site.
james / May 4, 2012 at 02:47 pm
I don't care if that guy is struggling with 135, maybe he's super-setting or recovering from an injury or something. I'm more concerned with why he's benching in a Smith Machine.

On another note, is that grip of his really safe? No possibility of the bar falling forward?
Michelle / May 4, 2012 at 04:13 pm
totum is nice inside but very small. if you're not into classes, it's definitely not worth your money -- limited equipment that gets very full very quickly in all but non-peak hours (ie there's a whole TWO benches for the entire gym to use).
Derek / May 4, 2012 at 04:59 pm
Another shout out for West End YMCA.

And Extreme Fitness is shit. Their staff is more concerned with getting you snared in a contract, nickel and dimeing you for training sessions, and handing out flyers on the sidewalk, than anything else. Don't even ask about nutritionists.
wtfskies / May 4, 2012 at 05:03 pm
the goodlife on yonge at richmond is way better than the one at liberty village. that being said i used to live in liberty village and that was my home gym for 8 months and it was pretty sweet.
nick replying to a comment from Reg the wedge / May 4, 2012 at 05:55 pm
i use the extreme on richmond. really enjoy the atmosphere. a lot of focused, motivated people in great shape but not intimidating. the trainers are good people and aren't pushy. i usually go sometime between 11am and 4pm, the evening crowd might be a different beast.
Shawn / May 4, 2012 at 10:22 pm
WTF people are saying the west-end YMCA is amazing?! The running track envelopes the cramped and crowded weight and resistance area, there's 2 BICEP CURL RESISTANCE MACHINES yet only 2 squat racks, when people are doing lat pull downs you can't walk from one side of the weight room to the other because there's no room, every one dying from the flu comes there to cough and breathe all over you, dbags have sat on a bench while I was on the sitting on the other bench, the mens locker room can only fit the width of one person (have fun when two guys wearing coats and carrying backpacks try to exit), you have to crawl over benches to get across the weight room, etc. Its a crappy gym and far inferior to the Central YMCA. The pre-reno west end ymca was better because at least the weight room had space...
Rena / May 5, 2012 at 09:18 am
I'm gonna give a shout-out to Trainer's Fitness at Bathurst/Bloor for being by far the most affordable option. There may not be a pool, sauna, or towel service, but the staff are very friendly, you get free classes and I've never ever had to wait for a machine. It's definitely an awesome place if you just want a place to work out and don't want to pay $80 a month for stuff you don't really need or use. Plus it's got a good mix of men and women and young people and older people.
Zipper / May 5, 2012 at 09:53 am
Goodlife fitness in Liberty village has to be the worst GL of all! Any of the other locations has less hipsters.
Brent / May 5, 2012 at 05:30 pm
Toronto Athletic Club is nice, but for what you pay it's absurd they don't have private showers. Really don't need to shower in the same prison stall as my boss and co-workers. I went for a trial workout and didn't go back.

I used to be a member of Yorkville Club but now work out at Totum since I moved downtown. I prefer Yorkville Club (bigger gym and nicer locker room) but Totum does everything right that it can in such a narrow space.
katie replying to a comment from Nicole / May 6, 2012 at 12:01 pm
OH NO! Not a bathroom sink!??! Not like the water comes from the same place or anything. Jeez. How could they even expect you to use the SINK?!

Actually, no - when I'm paying good money to work out somewhere, I don't expect the water to come from the bathroom. I would think that a gym can at least pay for a cooler by the work out equipment.
lizzy / May 8, 2012 at 04:58 pm
I agree - GL Yonge/Richmond is better than Liberty Village.

What about the Columbus Centre? Great facilities, track, pool, classes, tennis & squash courts and an incredible caffe to eat in before or after.

Kristine / May 18, 2012 at 02:23 pm
DCC is fantastic. An amazing facility and a non-traditional gym with great trainers. I'm not sure how one would expect to stay neat and tidy while lifting tractor tires and kegs?! That's not the point, the place is for hardcore functional fitness. If a neat and tidy gym with standardized classes is what you're looking for, this is not the place for you. If you're willing to dig deep, sweat your brains out, get stronger and more fit, DCC is it, plus, the guys who run DCC are actually considerate, don't judge based on appearance and they care about injuries and long term healthy living.

Yes, you are strong, we get it. Most congratulations.
Sadie / May 22, 2012 at 08:36 pm
I'm a member of the Extreme Fitness at Yonge and St Clair and I absolutely love it. It's spotless, the machines are new and in great working condition, there are a variety of classes included in the membership (including pilates with machines and all!), the trainers are so nice and not too expensive... And the best part of this Extreme Fitness is the crowd control. This location (the Delisle Club) is exclusive and it shows. I can take my membership card and go to any Extreme in the city, but members of other clubs can't come into ours. The peak times (between 4-730pm) are hardly considered busy in comparison to other fitness clubs I've been a member of (including Goodlife and Mayfair).

Hope this helps..

You just made this gym sound like douche-central
Sadie replying to a comment from mike1234 / May 28, 2012 at 11:21 am
It's a great friendly gym. Age range is a little older - 30+. I often find myself as the youngest member (I'm 22)... Soooo... No... Definitely not douche central! It's actually the furthest thing from that :)
Kelly / May 31, 2012 at 01:37 am
Bang Fitness should be on here. It's pretty crazy that they're not. The staff is great and clearly cares a lot. The training is tough but fun. I actually traveled a long way to train there when I was living in Toronto and still make it a point to get down there whenever I come to visit.

You can take this for what it's worth. I was never a gym person but they got me into training and it stuck because I built such a great foundation over there.
Candace / June 4, 2012 at 11:55 am
What about Ferris360- Yonge and Davisville. Clean, upscale, california inspired gym ?? It is only the best circuit classes in the city. Im sorry but bootcamps with their burpees and jumpsquats while your face is in mud and dog poo in parks, will not cut it. Big gyms with old equipment where thousands of people have sweat, is also out. This is the perfect solution. Please add Ferris360 to your list as the owner, Sarah Ferris, knows how to come on the scene with a beautiful, fun environment that is fit to be called, one of the best clubs in Toronto.
paul / June 4, 2012 at 05:16 pm

Gráinne / July 4, 2012 at 12:01 pm
Definitely agree that Bang Fitness should be here too. It's pretty notably absent from blogto in general which is strange. It's a smaller gym with incredible personal attention, excellent trainers and the best run classes I've ever done. It's just bizarre that GoodLife features and they don't.
James / July 5, 2012 at 12:04 pm
I'll agree with those that are thankful that Extreme Fitness isn't on the list. Their conduct is so consistently unethical it astonishes me there isn't some entity with the authority to shut them down.
ChillyBilly replying to a comment from Sadie / July 10, 2012 at 12:08 pm
Does this gym offer bottle service? How long have you been working there?
Sandra Charlton / July 26, 2012 at 01:19 pm
The best workouts don't have to happen at big gym chains. In fact, the best personal trainers and fitness class leaders tend to distance themselves from big gyms. I found an amazing personal trainer, Marlene with Be-Fit Boot Camp outdoor classes and personal training ( and she's affordable and amazing. Gears her workouts, even her outdoor boot camps at Eglinton Park in Toronto, to everyone's individual needs and goals. and she's so affordable: I only pay $45 for an hour of personal training, $50 for 4 classes. Gyms have a bad rap,although there are some good ones.
Ginger Sanders / July 27, 2012 at 10:59 am
Thanks for posting this! I've been looking for a fitness club for a while now, but I need to find one that has a chiropractor. i have a bad back, and I almost always do something to it while working out.
John Hodgins / July 27, 2012 at 03:19 pm
Be careful with the YMCA. JOined there about 5 - 6 years ago. Got hooked on their Bars and Plates course and went about 3 times per week, and worked my way up from 35 lbs to 115 lbs, and then was told this week that I had advanced too far and could either leave, or drop back to 60 lbs. A fitness club that tells you that you have become too fit ? What is that all about ??
David / August 6, 2012 at 03:52 pm
I just quit Extreme Fitness Yonge-Dundas a month ago and was thinking about going back on my company's corporate plan. This is the closest gym to me but it's pretty small, limited equipment, and I'm a small guy so I get pretty intimidated when the place is packed after work. Does anyone have any suggestions for smaller, maybe more private gyms that are still affordable and within the Yonge and College area?
Chris T / August 11, 2012 at 02:31 pm
Personal training business is the only profession where employer will try to take advantage of the trainers.
Here's a list of stuffs employers at fitness clubs will get you to do.

1) Watch the front desk - without pay.
2) You have to show up for meetings - without pay
3) Clean the gym floors - without pay
4) Be at the gym at all time, even when you don't have clients - without pay
5) Clean the bathroom - without pay

I'm sure there are many more

When are trainers going to stand up and say "enough"? When are trainers going to stand up and tell those fat ass lazy mof from Extreme for example to fcuk themselves?

Until then fellow trainers, you're just another dust in the wind.

Richard / August 31, 2012 at 05:08 pm
Some of the best training facilities are located in the downtown core, hopefully some day my company will have a location there. Currently we are only located in the suburbs.
Dave / August 31, 2012 at 05:59 pm
I've been a member of many gyms. System fitness in high park is by far the best bang for buck. It also has an extremely low douchebag population. West-end Y is the worst! Small workout area plus a high douchebag population dosent go well together.
JEFF replying to a comment from StormTrooper / September 20, 2012 at 07:01 pm
Really, just the fact that Rafa even NOTICED what the guy was lifting and actually took the time to insult the guy just shows what an ignorant person he is!!! I don't know how old he is but judging by his childish comment, I would guess about 12?
JEFF replying to a comment from John Hodgins / September 20, 2012 at 07:41 pm
JOHN, Why do you STILL need their "Bars ans Plates Course?" If you've been training 3 times a week for 5-6 years, you SHOULD be able to continue on your own. Just increase the weight like you have been on the program. If you need any more advice, there is TONS of info on the internet. Good luck and "KEEP PUSHIN!"

Hi Sadie, just wondering how much you pay a month for your membership at Delisle? I've heard it's the most expensive of the Extreme clubs.
Charles / December 20, 2012 at 03:17 pm
What happened to the fitness club that was located on the west side of Yonge Street between King and Adelaide. It was located on the second and third floors. I thought it was purchased by Goodlife. It seems Goodlife has moved across the street. Has another fitness club opened up at this location.

This place was a great location since you didn't have to walk outside (it was accessible through the PATH). They also had towel, laundry and locker service.
Mimra replying to a comment from Charles / January 8, 2013 at 03:36 pm
It's the GoodLife Plaza location now, Goodlife closed their Eaton Centre locations to open the 137 Yonge club but kept the club at ScotiaPlaza open.

Well I've been on both sides of it - running the business and working as a trainer, and have heard all the arguments - so in response to your questions:

- Did you contribute to the costs of building that gym or anything in it? NO, but you're happy to use the equipment yourself and to train your clients there (which is how you pay your bills) - so you need to contribute in some way - is watching the desk or helping keep the gym clean such a hardship? Who knows maybe if you were friendlier and showed an actual interest in seeing people succeed you might meet people at the front that will eventually become great clients of yours?
- Do you want to be part of the gym - help create a culture of good health, learning and an enjoyable environment? If so then go to the meetings and be part of it - attitude wise and thought wise!
- Wow what a hardship hanging out at the gym. Are you kidding me - you can spend your day marketing yourself and what you do, while meeting new people. Stop being such an ass and realize what makes a great trainer. It's all about your approach and attitude and yours is terrible. Whine, whine, whine!
Are there bad gyms and managers - absolutely, but you have the freedom to ply your trade anywhere, at anytime with whomever you choose to train - yet you're bitching about having to watch the desk? Try getting a real job for awhile then come and bitch to us. Gyms, for the most part are not huge money makers and once you realize that, and start to appreciate the opportunity you have then maybe you'll start to contribute and make the place better. In doing so your business will grow exponentially. The best, and most successful trainers I've ever met are the ones leading the way and making the space they're in better, and have a genuine desire to see the business grow and flourish.
W.G. / January 17, 2013 at 11:58 am
On the topic of best gym?? That is such a subjective question. What do you like? What's important to you? Do you care about the colour of the walls, how big the change rooms are, or how friendly the blonde is at the desk? If you do then pick a gym that appeals to you. Personally I like smaller, loud gyms with people that are there to train and are not concerned with what I did last night. I could care less what you're squatting and I don't want yoga mats or spinning classes. Some people want a social environment and are there to see what others are doing, or wearing or how some girl is working her glutes. Good gym, bad gym - whatever - find where you're comfortable and go on a consistent basis. Share what you like and why you like a particular place -but please don't tell me one gym is better than the other cause you have no idea what everyone else likes!!!!
Chim Ritchulds / February 25, 2013 at 11:44 pm
I'm a member at liberty village goodlife. I live nearby, I work odd hours, and I often workout late (midnight-ish) so it works well for me for the time being. If you workout 2pm-9pm like most people, be prepared to wait for equipment, and deal with messy change rooms. People say the staff is friendly, i wouldn't know i don't talk to them, but the young lady that sold me my membership didn't know what a squat rack was (they have 3). Goodlife also has a track record for generally being a shitty company, just look up their wikipedia page and if that's not enough you can also find tons of complaints from former members. Gyms #2-4 for the most part are all quality facilities with tons of amenities that are all incredibly over-priced.

Best fitness clubs in Toronto: running / biking / walking the hills at Christie Pitts or the Don Valley beltway paths through Moore Park and David Balfour ravines or Sunnybrook Park. Cost is $0, results up to you. Winter is the best. Plan on using traction devices.
karla / March 8, 2013 at 10:46 am
traction devices in winter, studded tires for bikes, similar acting items for your feet if walking / hiking / running.

ok.. um. I NEED MORE THAN 70 lbs, and if i put more than 30lbs onto an olympic bar it weighs more than 70lbs and u don't seem to be complaining about those being dropped.

All our fitness clubs suck! Prices too high offer too little. All decent clubs should have an indoor swimming pool and sauna. Not to mention squash courts and table tennis...
Tellsthetruth replying to a comment from W.G. / April 7, 2013 at 01:46 pm
This is quite a douchebag-like must have been a manager at the now dead EXTREME.....obviously you have no clue what trainers, well good ones, in Toronto have to put up with at these pathetic chain gyms like GL or EX. You mention the trainers contributing in some way to the building etc....isnt that the reason gyms only pay their trainers 30% if that of what the client is paying the gym for forgot to mention that. That is by far enough of a contribution considering that client is also paying for a membership. Just another excuse from someone who had experience shitting on the people below him..thats all you sound like. You say there are many places for trainers to make business here. How when every single gym in Toronto operates in this way. To all the people wanting to buy training through the gym...if it costs $75+ for sessions from a gym, your trainer is lucky to see $25 of that. Ask the trainer quietly if they can come to your condo or train somewhere else privately. So to hear comments like this saying the trainers need to do more BLAH BLAH about giving us your salary and we will do more....WE ARE TRAINERS NOT SLAVES. YOU as a gym need US...we do not need you.
Justine replying to a comment from Tellsthetruth / April 7, 2013 at 01:53 pm
lol he sure sounds like he was a manager. he even tries making it sound like going to the 'unpaid' meetings are good for building your character. Also, telling others to go and get a real job. Last time I checked, real jobs actually pay you for meetings. What kind of loser comments are these W.G. You were obviously in management as you do not seem to understand nobody wants to give themselves away from free. Is the gym going to pay trainers for free...I think why should anything be the other way around...GO BACK TO SLEEP YOU CORPORATE ROBOT. you probably worked at a gym as one of those fat asses we laugh about trying to figure out what the hell you are doing working at a gym
Justine replying to a comment from Tellsthetruth / April 7, 2013 at 01:57 pm
ATTN to anyone buying training at any of these gyms -when deciding to purchase, do not be afraid to ask the gym. Out of this $80 i am paying for each session, how much is actually going to the trainer? This answer will greatly help you understand the quality of work you can expect. There are exceptions to this but for the most part, anyone getting paid below 20 bucks is either crappy or getting shafted. Extreme was known for paying their trainers $15-17 and charging $75 per you see why whiners like W.G kind of don't make sense to defend the gyms. Trainers are PEOPLE. Clients are people. I could give a fuck about Patch or the stupid owners of extreme

I have been a member of the North York YMCA since the late 90's (off and on). I have also been a member Goodlife. For the money, Goodlife is a better deal. I am currently going to the Y, only because it is more convenient at this time. I find there are a lot of members who are obnoxious to be around. One group of four holds a "meeting", sort of a daytime talk-show in the stretching room. They are loud and like to show-off. I have complained to the manager a few times, but nothing has changed. There is a cafe counter with some nice tables and chairs under a skylight on the main floor, however they have moved the table-tennis right next to this area. I am at the Y at the same time every morning and the same group of people in the table tennis room, constantly shout and scream. It is very unpleasant for those of us who just want to chat, study, work or read. Again, I have complained to management and to the people making all the noise and nothing has changed. Others have told me it bothers them, but most refuse to complain about it. I plan to hang-in until I can change back to a local Goodlife.

In Tread Mill or in the cycle those are really good exercise you can ever get. But Running on a tread mill properly and effectively requires well balanced and perfectly tailored shoes. Earlier I used to wear a low quality unknown brand shoes and had severe foot pain, then when I consulted a physician he told me to buy quality and comfortable shoes and that will solve the problem. To be honest I recently bought these Merrell shoes through a blog which is from an online shoe company known as and they have the best deals today available online. Great quality at low price, made me have a healthy run.

sarah / July 15, 2013 at 11:41 pm
I would give my eye tooth to find a gym where the trainers aren't telling you how "hot" you're going to look, or to get your body "summer", "bikini" or "beach" ready. All of this is based on shallow, superficial looks. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with that, but then don't label yourself a "health club" - call yourself a "beauty parlour" instead. There is far too much pressure on kids, especially young girls, to fit into a certain stereotype and allowing so-called "health clubs" perpetuate this doesn't help the cause. As a matter of fact, why not start a holistic club that has health, fitness and self-esteem/psychological/body dysmorphia counselling divisions. And none of the narcissists telling you how important it is to look hot. If the trainers stopped looking at themselves in the mirror for ten minutes a day and actually read a book or a magazine, they might know this.

It is true, people need to find what works for them. @ Nicole, clearly if you need to be babied and need a water ba ba to be fed to you, you need a luxurious, place where they wipe your brow with a towel and you barely sweat for that matter anyways.

DCC is a place where people come to TRAIN and train hard. They sweat, some people cry, others puke and the dedicated ones always come back for more. If you want she she fu fu, go to the Yorkville Club or somewhere where they don't actually give a shit whether or not you get results.

If you're looking for a real gym in the east end, Riverdale Fitness can't be beat. Lots of free weights, squat racks, benches, a heavy bag, kettle bells etc. Never too busy, great trainers and staff and low rates. Nothing fancy here, just a great workout without the b.s.!
Ron / August 21, 2013 at 09:38 pm
RIVERDALE FITNESS (on Danforth) -- easily Toronto's most balanced, no-hassle, intelligent and civilized fitness facility. It's like family, more than you can say about all of the tinsel out there.
Steve replying to a comment from Lee / August 23, 2013 at 01:44 pm
Yeah, DCC really cares! Especially when you're assigned a trainer (who isn't really a trainer) and spends most of his time chatting with other people (mostly the girls) at the gym - oh, sorry, I mean "adult playground", while he's supposed to be training you. I felt it was money so well spent, that I didn't renew my contract!

No dude, gym owners ARE abusive sales-shark scumbags. I would totally expect one of you people to try and slap down a trainer like that, it happens to me all the damn time when I have valid concerns.

Maybe picking up weights is no big deal, I clean up the gym ALL the time while most trainers don't.

However, gym owners are obsessed with squeezing blood from a stone, they lie to their employees about how amazing it is to work in their gym and all the great marketing opportunities.

They also lie constantly to members and tell their employees to lie and deceive and bend the truth in order to make money, but this only hurts your business in the end.

Trainers are not marketing professionals, if you're a gym owner, that's YOUR bloody job. We are athletes and exercise physiologists. SWe should take some responsibility for the marketing, but when it comes down to it... a good majority of gym owners are nothing but pure scumbags and pressure salesmen.

Gym owners make it difficult for trainers to sell and deliver a great experience by requiring us to do work for free all the time. That 20$/hr for a training session then becomes more like 10$/hr including all the B.S. When your employees are struggling to survive, living with their parents and still working 10hrs/day most of it unpaid, it ain't hard to see why most people, including the trainers, are very cynical about the industry.

They expect you to live on a minimum wage salary while you train their wealthy clients and have to act as if you love it. It's hard to be a shiny looking world class trainer when you go home and eat two slices of bread with nothing inbetween.

In the end, they have no loyalty for you nor do they are about your well-being. Trainers are in abundance and they are viewed as expendable.

The grail of fitness careers is to train on your own and pay rental fees to a real gym instead of these hustling and lying sales scum.

Extreme Couture is a terrible place for a number of reasons: One they will take out money after contract termination for months; the facility is an old factory with an air of dust,leaky ceilings and unfinished bathrooms, also they rent out their gym for shows without notice which restricts access for members and finally it's way overcrowded.

If you are looking for a fun, energizing workout that will leave you feeling extremely empowered and strong you should really check out in Vaughan. Not only are the classes fantastic but the staff is incredible!!

Also, these classes are the MOST beginner friendly fitness classes I have ever experienced. FYI that's coming from, possibly, the most uncoordinated and non-athletic person you will ever meet.They even pair you up one on one with an instructor for your first class so that you can really participate with the rest of the group and learn what to do before going full steam ahead. Another bonus is that they are extremely affordable and even GIVE you gloves when you buy just 3 classes!

You are guaranteed to LOVE it!! :)

The bars used for a bars and plates class or a BodyPump style class are definitely not designed to carry that much weight. I am sure that is what the staff told you, too.
