Toronto just got a gym for plus size women
The gym industry in Toronto is absolutely booming right now, and regardless of how—or more importantly, why—you choose to get your fitness on, there's probably a gym in the city that's perfect for you.
So, if you're someone who identifies as a plus-size woman who's all about body positivity, you'll probably love Fitness by Sarah Taylor, a gym offering workouts that revolve around self-love.
Helmed by Sarah Taylor, a plus size model and personal trainer who was crowned Miss Plus Canada in 2014, Fitness' first location launched in Etobicoke in March 2018.
The gym's "100% judgement-free" concept has become so popular, they now have a second location at Bloor and Clinton.
"No other fitness program includes the insight, personal triumphs and the tools developed by a female who personally overcame abuse and self-loathing to a place of confidence and strength," says Fitness' website.
For a membership starting at $179 a month, members of Fitness can access group classes with welcoming names like 'You're the whole package', a full-body strength class, or 'Admirable arms'.
"I know what it’s like as a plus-size woman to walk into a gym and feel intimidated, not know what to do, and not return," says Taylor. "But there is so much more to a happy life than just hitting the gym or losing weight, one must truly love the woman they are. "
Fitness also offers one-one-one training sessions, online training packages, and the option to drop-in for classes at $25 a session.
Both the Etobicoke and Clinton locations typically run around two classes a day.
