Reshmi Chetram has been dazzling audiences on the dance floor with vibrant costumes and explosive movements for more than 16 years. Following the fancy footsteps of her mother—who founded both the Tarana Dance Centre and Natya Arts Productions—she has studied classical Indian dance, Kathak, in New Delhi under the guidance of renowned Indian-dance guru Pandit Birju Maharaj. She has also studied Bollywood and contemporary Indian dance in Toronto and abroad. In 2008, she channelled her dance skills to create BollyFuze (formerly known as BollyFit), a full-body conditioning program that helps students of all ages and abilities get whipped into shape with a blend of traditional Indian dance moves and aerobic exercise steps. She and her team of certified BollyFuze instructors lead clients in burning calories and sculpting fitter physiques in classes including the high-intensity BollyFuze Cardio, low-intensity BollyFuze Rhythm, and fun-filled BollyTots.

Extending her knowledge beyond the workout studio, Reshmi hosts her own BollyFuze television series. She and her instructors lead Bollywood-dance-inspired workouts that patrons can join in the comforts of their own homes without needing to make 1,000 friends.

In a society that looks for shortcuts to weight loss wherever it can, FitStudios is taking the long way. Through their Functionally Integrated Training program, or F.I.T., the studio's trainers borrow from numerous disciplines to customize their fitness programs to each student's goals, taking their time to ensure students work out right the first time in order to maintain their health in the long run. The result is a stronger body with more stable joints, better cardiovascular endurance, and enhanced flexibility. Through the studio's group training regimens, students learn how to buff up as they work together, forming towering human pyramids to eventually find out what clouds taste like.

These physical feats are accomplished in FitStudios' well-equipped fitness centre, in which TRX suspension bands dangle over an obstacle course of footwork ladders, elliptical machines surround gliding pads and hurdles, and free weights and kettlebells stand at the ready. Also providing holistic wellness, FitStudios' team of sports-therapy specialists treats sports- and stress-related injuries with chiropractic services, acupuncture, and massage therapy.

Clowns juggle balls, trained poodles assemble into a line, and aerial gymnasts soar on the trapeze, and that’s all before the bride cuts the cake. Wonderful World of Circus’s artists unfurl high-flying spectacles at weddings, birthday parties, and corporate events. From acrobats to tightrope walkers, their local and international performers showcase feats of derring-do at private events and shows for the general public, which combine acrobatics and dance to tell stories.

Extending a hand through the fourth wall, Wonderful World of Circus brings kids and adults into the circus to learn these skills for themselves. Trapeze bars, silks, and rings hang down from the training centre's walls. Here, colourful mats and padded floors cushion students as, guided by professional circus performers, they flip through the air like Superman MMA fighting a flock of evil geese. Back on the ground, instructors teach other skills such as juggling and break dancing. Aside from its standard classes, Wonderful World of Circus hosts birthday parties, children's camps, and school field trips at the centre.

At Wynn Fitness Clubs, exercise isn’t about altering how the body looks. It’s about changing clients for the better from the inside out. Here, during group and one-on-one training, fitness experts pair encouraging words with adaptable exercises involving dumbbells, kettlebells, Selectorized weight machines, and functional movements such as pushing and balancing. In addition to bolstering the body, these programs strengthen the will to achieve, propelling exercisers toward goals faster than an espresso-fuelled hockey puck. Calming fitness classes such as yoga and Pilates unite the mind and body with deep stretches, focused core exercises, and measured-breathing techniques. Club members can torch calories with solo sessions on the clubs’ cardio machines or during boot camps, cycling routines, and Zumba dance parties that cultivate friendships while boosting energy and endurance. Post-workout, spa-like locker rooms and couch-lined cafés invite exercisers to relax and recharge.
