Work­out hot spots

Get toned and healthy here

This neigh­bour­hood is no stranger to the fit­ness craze. Since stu­dios of­fer al­most ev­ery con­ceiv­able type of class, work­ing out can be (al­most) as fun as stay­ing home and watch­ing Net­flix.

Even peo­ple who don’t like yoga end up lov­ing the hot yoga at Mok­sha Yoga Down­town ( 577 Welling­ton West, 416-361-3033, down­town.mok­shayoga.ca). Class lev­els and lengths vary to suit your needs. An en­ergy ex­change pro­gram lets yo­gis on a tight bud­get trade vol­un­teer hours at the stu­dio for un­lim­ited yoga.

Those look­ing for some­thing a bit more ath­letic will love Quad Spin ( 580 King West, 416203-1811, quad­spin.com). Eas­ily bored types should take ad­van­tage of the live DJ and glowin-the- dark spin classes, while the freak­ishly fit can in­dulge in stren­u­ous three-hour rides.

Don’t judge Flirty Girl Fit­ness (580 King West, 416-920-1400, flir­ty­girl­fit­ness.com) by its name. Sure, there are the pole tricks and chair strip­tease work­shops, but also se­ri­ously hard­core car­dio and strength classes. This women- only gym doesn’t go easy on you, but al­ways adds a dose of fun and sass to even the most gru­elling work­outs.

Want car­dio, core, en­durance, bal­ance, strength and flex­i­bil­ity all in one? Check out Stu­dio La­gree’s ( 788 King West, 416-901-4788, stu­di­o­la­gree.com) classes us­ing the Megaformer, a Pi­lates ma­chine that doesn’t fool around. This is a great work­out for those with in­juries, be­cause no im­pact is in­volved. Classes are a bit pricey, so you may want to sup­ple­ment your reg­i­men with other op­tions.

Class lengths vary depend­ing on your needs at Mok­sha Yoga
