THIS IS CANADA’S BEST GYM
GYMS CAN BE DAUNTING, WE GET IT. FROM THE
outside, they look like a secret society, complete with their own culture and intimidating pieces of machinery that exist nowhere beyond the four walls of fitness.
That’s why we’ve launched this awards program: to highlight excellence in Canadian fitness and provide guidance on how you can find the best gym for you needs, all from the comfort of your couch.
After scouring gyms for the ultimate fitness experience, our editors shortlisted three Canadian establishments — GoodLife Fitness, Orangetheory Fitness and YMCA — and then encouraged readers and gym goers to support their faves through social media. The result? Over 8,000 Canadians voted.
Turn to find out who won top honours — and more! We’ve got 12 pages jam-packed with everything you need to make the best decisions on all things fitness. From joining a gym, to hiring a personal trainer, to what to wear and when to eat, we’ve covered all the bases.
