  • Legacy Indoor Cycling Studios
    Bikers can grunt and sweat, pedalling 25 kilometres in a single session, they?ll never travel so much as an inch beyond Legacy Indoor Cycling Studio?s 2,000-square-foot space. Instead, Schwinn-certified instructors coach them along imagined paper routes, varying the intensity of hills and curves via the advanced settings on Schwinn Evolution bikes. In each class, up to 30 stationary steeds whir in place, their spokes? constant hum drowned out by the teachers? commands and the high-energy music blaring from a Bose stereo system. Beyond spinning sessions, the personal trainers also bend bodies in yoga classes and incinerate calories with boot-camp-style circuit training, which incorporates cycling. With almost 30 total classes a week, the studio accommodates virtually any schedule, allowing students to fit in a workout between work and daily appointments to oil their bionic legs.

  • Quad
    It's impossible to feel left behind at a Quad spin class. This fact is true in a literal sense, as the indoor cycles are stationary, but it also reflects the welcoming mindset that prevails at each studio. Several introductory sessions hosted throughout the month acquaint students with the the Schwinn IC Pro bikes, as well as different hand positions and proper cycling form. Standard 60-minute lessons balance intervals of challenging speeds with more serene periods, permitting guests to set their own pace. Other class variations include 60-minute endurance rides and spinning combinations, which mix indoor cycling with exercises such as Pilates and deep stretches.

  • TRX TrainStation and the National Squash Academy
    NSA TrainStation director Niki Aron has been a personal trainer for more than a decade, during which she has helped people reach their fitness goals, all while embracing the transformative powers of TRX suspension training in a converted airplane hangar. Designed by an active Navy SEAL looking for a way to work out without regular gym equipment, TRX employs straps that help exercisers use their bodies for resistance. With straps looped around hands, ankles, or overenthusiastic ponytails, participants lean back, hang upside-down, and twist. TRX workouts are designed to simultaneously improve flexibility, balance, and core strength. TRX straps wind around the i-beams of the National Squash Academy, the facility in which Niki hosts classes. Through lessons, camps, and outreach programs, the Academy seeks to fill its ten courts with players of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. Because of the origins of the facility, the workout space leaves ample room around equipment and visitors, discouraging overcrowding. The facility was named Best Specialty Fitness Club in Toronto by BlogTO in 2013.

  • Barre Works
    The soundtrack for this boutique studio's classes pulse with an upbeat playlist, a fun factor that helped Barreworks to win 2013's Best Workout Studio in Now Toronto. High-profile hits on MTV Canada, The Globe and Mail, Flare, and Breakfast Television have also garnered Barreworks a barrage of fitness fans. Though sessions always use a ballet barre, they might also incorporate tools such as resistance bands and weighted balls. Clients of all skill levels might engage in a mix of cardio work, core conditioning, strength training, and deep stretches. Despite its balletic roots, the practice doesn't require clients to have any dance experience. And to further welcome beginners, instructors can demonstrate modifications that reduce the difficulty of the sequences.

  • Spinout Cycle
    A competitive spirit can be the best kind of fuel. Hanya Kizemchuk set out to take advantage of that spirit when she founded Spinout Cycle, a cycling studio that harnesses innovative technology to give riders the ability to track real-time data, keep an eye on calories burned, and let you know how the race is going. And there is a race??a large wireless leaderboard displays performance metrics of registered participants throughout the stadium-style studio, letting each cyclist compete against their fellow pedal-pushers (using their given name or an alias). The boost from technology extends beyond the workout sessions as well, with results delivered electronically, online bike and class reservations, and detailed bios of the studio's world-class instructors available for all who visit their website.
