$15 for One Obstacle Race Training Entry at the O Course ($30 Value)
Featured by Global News, Toronto Star, Get Out There Magazine, and a variety of other media outlets, the O Course obstacle race training course occurs every Saturday morning and features an enormous heat with more than 200 boot-camp participants. Drawing from his experience as a former US Marine, the studio's co-founder Tony A. designed The O Course's signature boot camp, the O Course, to mimic the workouts he completed during his army days. Participants of all fitness levels can partake in the advanced workout system training at Polson Pier's The Docks, which features 20 or more obstacles and was mentioned by the Toronto Star as "Toronto’s first and only military-style obstacle training course." Each session begins with a 45-minute warm-up, followed by the one- to two-hour military-style workout. Participants are asked to arrive at 8 a.m. with the heat starting promptly at 9 a.m. Reserve a class slot by signing up online; for more information, see the FAQs.
Fit Factory Fitness
At downtown Toronto's Fit Factory Fitness, voted Top Fitness Club of 2013 in Toronto by Top Choice Awards, former US Marine Corps drill instructor and Fit Factory co-founder Tony Austin mimics the intense training regimen he completed during his military days. Along with his fellow instructors, Tony uses his 22 years of fitness experience while donning a military-style olive cap to lead exercisers of all fitness levels through more than 120 diverse classes, including personal training, boot camp, and boxing. One week, exercisers might jog with buckets full of water on the shores of a lake or swing sledgehammers into the sand, and the next, they might head indoors to drag heavy bags across the astroturf. With Tony's military background, the exercisers receive training and regiments like those practiced by the U.S. Armed Forces. Instructors also teach boxing boot-camp classes, in which patrons pummel heavy punching bags until they agree to personally train them.
