Gym-Max presents fitness fanatics with a fully equipped facility open seven days a week. Scheduled throughout the week at all three locations, trainer-led group fitness classes provide students with a chance to appease the sweat gods by filling bright studios with calorie-crushing exercises. Hasten heart rates in athletic conditioning classes, or channel the Tour de France in spinning classes without having to learn the French word for “velocipede.” Minds and bodies get centred in a yoga class, and Zumba shows students how to shimmy into shape. A month of full access to Gym-Max's well-maintained, spacious gym facilities gives customers free rein to bulk up with free weights, practice fashion runway strutting on a treadmill, or train for their next elevator boycott on a stairmaster.
Ropes and giant tires litter the ground, and large resistance bands hang from rafters—this isn't a tractor warehouse, it’s PhysXtreme's well-stocked training grounds. Here, a fleet of certified instructors, led by trainer Shane Miller, leads high-intensity boot camps and athletic strength training programs. Whether outdoors or inside, they helm the sessions using a variety of heart-pumping and muscle-building workouts, such as sandbag training, flipping tires, lifting kettlebells, and giving piggyback rides to friendly bears.
DanceStudios.Ca's class schedule might look overwhelming at first, but that's just due to the sheer breadth of its offerings. From the spirited, sultry moves of bachata, cha-cha, and salsa to the crisp, formal spins of the fox trot and waltz, its classes each focus on a different aspect of dance. There are even belly-dance, burlesque, and Zumba classes to inspire a playful approach to movement.
Relaxation is both a concept and a destination at Soma Health & Fitness, where sleek wooden floors are bathed in the sunbeams streaming in from symmetrical skylights. Here, visitors steep selves in soothing services such as massage therapy and physiotherapy, which pairs clients with certified professionals for one-on-one treatments that tackle movement difficulties with postural correction, muscle stimulation, and ultrasound treatments to seek out cursive injury reports spelled out in knotted tendons. Rehabilitative kinesiology combined with yoga and cardio fitness classes in the fully-equipped gym boost clients' cardiovascular health and muscle tone while providing an outlet for emotional renewal.
