CRUNCH gym just opened its first Toronto location

Remember Hard Candy? That gym that made a big splash when it arrived in Toronto because Madonna had a hand in it? Well it's long gone, and — after a stint as World Gym College Park — CRUNCH has arrived to take its place.

CRUNCH gyms have a loyal following at their mostly US locations, but have been slowly creeping into Canada. At $49.99/month plus initiation, it's preparing for a showdown with big names like Goodlife and Planet Fitness.

Sweat more together. #CrunchLife
