Toronto to get its first indoor surfing centre (sort of)

As the snowy season kicks in here in Toronto, so does the endless parade of other people's sunny beachside vacation photos on your Facebook feed. If you can't jet out of town this winter yourself, you're in luck: A brand-new fitness centre is giving Toronto a whole new way to fake being beachside (and you only need to go as far as Yonge and Eglinton).

SurfSet Toronto is set to open December 1 with a roster of surfing-inspired fitness classes, complete with training boards that simulate the motion of the ocean. The SurfSet system, which has enjoyed tons of press in the U.S., features courses focused on improving balance, building muscle, burning fat, or a circuit-based mix of all four.

Unfortunately, the classes are devoid of actual sand and sunshine, and whether or not you will automatically be able to shred on an actual surfboard remains unconfirmed.
