For more than 20 years, the Phoenix Fitness team has been building unique relationships at the gym, and the results of those strong bonds are apparent in the success of Phoenix Fitness members. The facility offers a diverse roster of group fitness classes that run the gamut from Hatha yoga to challenging boot camp and CrossFit classes.

To help with sports or other injuries, the facility also offers active therapies such as chiropractic care and clinical conditioning.
TRX suspension training was invented by Navy SEAL commando Randy Hetrick, as a way to keep his team in shape for missions—and at Ancaster Fitness, trainers employ the same military-quality suspension training to tone their clients' physiques.

Alexandra Evans knows firsthand the myriad benefits of Bikram yoga. After discovering the exercise form while living in Japan, the director of Bikram Yoga Hamilton Dundas noticed a marked change in her skin, physique, and ability to reach cans of green beans on a high shelf.
