For 19 years, the Sportsplex gym at Total Fitness—under one name or another—has provided a venue for locals to work out and be a part of a "true community gym." The private health club elevates heart rates and feelings of camaraderie in group fitness classes such as yoga, aerobics, or karate. Private trainers teach individuals custom routines, and nutritional experts revitalize and revolutionize diet plans. Blue pads rest on the white metal frames of machines, coordinating exactly with the paint colours on the walls. Wall-mounted televisions glow, interspersed among painted, empowering words and quotes, such as, “The most important thing about goals is having one,” spoken by Geoffrey Abert when describing the game of soccer.
Inside a room heated to a balmy 105 degrees Fahrenheit, a certified Bikram yoga instructor leads students through eagle, locust, and rabbit poses. These poses, part of a 26-asana sequence designed by yogi Bikram Choudhury, are intended to increase oxygen and blood flow through every inch of the body. Though the physical benefits of a stronger, more flexible body are undeniable, the good done to the mental and spiritual selves can only be described—a greater sense of peace, increased mental clarity, and the ability to tolerate people who talk about their night dreams. Eager to share its passion for the practice, the staff at Bikram Yoga equips new students with everything they need to succeed. Friendly receptionists hand students towels and mats before pointing them in the direction of clean, sleek changing and shower areas. The studio itself is constantly filled with purifying practitioners, as a deep bench of certified instructors teach both morning and evening classes seven days a week.

The staff at National Hockey Training Centre takes the official national winter sport seriously. Not only do they lead group programs throughout the year for both children and adults, but they also offer one-on-one ice training. During these 30-minute sessions, coaches help individuals meet specific goals, such as competing on a regional team or mastering the backwards skate in order to gracefully exit an escalating argument with a Zamboni driver.
In more than 200 locations in 25 countries, the staff at My Gym aims to nurture children's physical and mental development through engaging classes. Each gym houses small-scale fitness equipment with soft construction that inspires kiddies to play safely. Instructors lead kids in song, dance, jump, and exercise classes, all structured to fine-tune motor skills, critical thinking, and self-esteem. Children as young as 6 weeks can giggle and crawl in My Gym classes, which also include options for kids up to 13 years old.
Beyond scheduled classes, the gyms also host play sessions that discard lesson plans and encourage youngsters to cut loose. The gyms are also available for birthday parties, which include supervised gym-time, staff-led birthday games, puppets, rides, and full use of the facilities. Open play gives kids free rein of the gym's playground equipment while under supervision. During Parents’ Night Out events, the attentive staff watches over kids while parents enjoy a night of grown-up conversation or a chance to hone their Marco Polo skills for future family bouts.
