It’s appropriate that the slick yellow-and-black colour scheme inside Mecca Fitness mirrors that of a construction site. After all, visitors aboard the gym's cardio and resistance equipment are painstakingly building new physiques. That’s also a process that owner Grant Roberts has endured both by choice and by necessity. Roberts was a champion bodybuilder before a car accident left him severely debilitated. The medical community deemed him lucky to be alive, and wouldn't condone his efforts to rejoin the fitness scene. So, during a four-year stay in Costa Rica, he took charge of his own rehabilitation, and steadily became involved in seminars, exhibitions, and competitions once again. His expertise and devotion have since been affirmed by celebrities such as Clint Eastwood, who called on Roberts to train Hilary Swank for her role as a boxer in Eastwood's film, Million Dollar Baby. The secret of Roberts’ success might be his personal touch. As the owner of Mecca Fitness, he oversees 16,000 square feet of amenities that he says on his website comprise "the kind of gym I love to train in". He personally helped with the development of the Strive strength equipment in the resistance-training area. And to show he stands behind his products, he emblazons his name on every container of the gym's MVP nutrition supplements as well as each member's newly buff deltoids. By mapping specialized zones for stretching, abdominal work, weightlifting, and women-only workouts, he readies the gym to help guests with nearly any wellness goal.
At the age of 26, Hot Yoga on 20th owner Dallas Kruszelnicki was in a great deal of pain. After breaking numerous bones skateboarding and snowboarding, he turned to yoga and soon realized that he had not only found a way to heal but also found his calling. He set about opening Hot Yoga on 20th, outfitting the studio with sustainable cork floors and a wall of mirrors that let students check their alignment and practice winking. The 1,800-square-foot studio uses a state-of-the-art heat-recovery and air-circulation system that keeps temperatures hovering around 42 degrees Celsius for most classes. Hot Yoga on 20th has both male and female changing rooms, each equipped with bathrooms, showers, and lockers.
Three-time tae kwon do world champion and current captain of Team Canada Clint Diekema has taught self-defence and fitness classes at Diekema Taekwondo for more than 14 years. The seasoned instructor categorizes each of his tae kwon do classes by age and belt to ensure that students train alongside others of the same skill level and Power Ranger preference. The 3,000-square-foot training centre's schedule also carves out time for women-only sessions. During classes, students run through a set of warm-up exercises before they can strap on gloves and practice their skills by striking padded shields with their hands and feet.
