Laced with elements of yoga, Pilates, and gymnastics, the women-only classes at Aradia Fitness sculpt lean, toned physiques.

No matter the class, the environment at Aradia is always lighthearted, nurturing, and more supportive than a stainless-steel hammock. Ladies may gather their friends and book the studio for a girl's night out, birthday, or bachelorette party.

A line of girls wearing brightly colored dresses painted with Celtic knots dance in formation, their hard shoes clacking against the floor and tightly wound curls bouncing as their fast-moving feet become blurs. Irish dancing has long entranced people all across the world with its rapid steps and colorful costumes. And the Devoy Academy of Irish Dance teaches this art form with a bevy of classes for youths.
Its instructors, Kieran and Dympna DeVoy, have both danced since childhood and have reached top levels of competition. For the past five years, Kieran, who is the principle dancer in the Celtic Dance Company of Canada, has toured with Magic of the Dance—one of the most successful Irish-dance shows of all time—and performing in the lead role.
Now, Kieran and Dympna teach children a blend of traditional and contemporary dances that use both hard and soft shoes. Though many students dance with an eye toward competition, classes accommodate both competitors and dancers seeking a bit of Irish fun that doesn’t require them to hunt down a leprechaun.
Propelled by a lifelong passion for athletics, Duro Akinremi began working as a fitness trainer more than 20 years ago. After teaching in renowned facilities such as LA Fitness and Goodlife Fitness, Akinremi opened his own training studio—JA Fitness & Wellness. Amid the private facility’s advanced CrossFit equipment, Akinremi leads personal-training sessions and boot camps throughout the week, and Zumba classes are also offered. His courses combine strength training and cardio to improve endurance, enhance muscle, and torch fat. Akinremi also promotes healthy lifestyles outside of his gym, providing his students with nutrition plans and encouraging them to record goals, track their progress, and keep a daily diary written from the viewpoint of Richard Simmons.
Working out at home would be pretty easy, if not for the lack of gym equipment and the need to muster up an hour's worth of motivation all by yourself. Trainers on Site eliminates those excuses by showing up at clients' homes (or even workplaces) with portable fitness equipment - resistance bands, TRX, balls, dumbbells—and lots of encouragement. Robert Foster founded the company in 2008, and Torontonians might still spot his tiny blue and white smart car zipping to appointments.
Bathed in the gentle glow of subdued, relaxing light, Impressions Day Spa’s talented staff deploys upwards of 20 years of industry experience as they lavish bodies in serenity-inducing services. The spa’s dedication to individualized care is evidenced in the lush private treatment rooms wherein aestheticians tailor treatments such as microdermabrasion and organic airbrush tanning to fit each patron’s skin type and accommodate comfort levels. Bolstering existing beauty remains a spa specialty, but Impressions' team of RMTs also perfects the art of stress erasing through treatments such as Swedish massage, which can help relieve trauma resulting from having a quarter painfully extracted from an ear by a street magician.
