The top 5 new gyms in Toronto

Gyms that opened in Toronto in 2015 have provided some great options for new workout spaces. These new facilities offer options from group training to indoor obstacle courses - all of which have the potential to inspire you to stick to your future fitness goals.

Here are my picks for the top new gyms in Toronto for 2015.

F45 Training
F45 Training is my favourite workout in the city. The gym offers a HIT circuit training with different workouts at each station for an impressive and sweaty 45-minute workout. The Liberty Village studio is the first of its kind in Canada after amassing a huge following in Australia.

Pursuit OCR
An indoor obstacle course for adults? That's one way to sweat and get in shape. The playzone is a 10,000 square foot facility north of Queen and Dufferin with 19 obstacle courses including a ball pit.

Anchored Social Club
This Leslieville gym has a slightly different approach to the team workout. It gets down to the nitty gritty of a workout and uses your body strength as a gauge. The weights consist of makeshift items like bags of rice and a giant handmade climbing wall. Owner Ben Dussault is behind the minimalist gym, and trains people to rely on their own strength.

Planet Fitness
Planet Fitness opened inside the Galleria Mall on Dupont. If you want a basic workout without the excessive price tag this is your place.There are no group classes or swimming pools, but memberships are only $10 per month. This gym is ideal if you're a fitness beginner, and don't mind that the elliptical isn't hooked up to a TV.

Forme Fitness
Owned by personal trainers the Smits Brothers, this 5,500-square foot facility near Queen and Broadview focuses on resistance training and metabolic intervals. The trainers also offer one-on-one training as as well group classes, nutrition counselling and monitoring. Forme is also the first gym in Canada with an indoor 3 lane turf track.
