For those un­fa­mil­iar with the con­cept, float tanks are de­signed to be com­pletely silent, scent-free and pitch black (8165 Yonge St.).

On top of sell­ing 3D print­ers and ma­te­ri­als to schools and li­braries, Mak­er­wiz also hosts work­shops and STEM-re­lated ed­u­ca­tion pro­grams for both kids and adults. They also of­fer a spe­cial 3D print­ing ser­vice, so peo­ple can de­sign their own items and prod­ucts, whether it’s a piece of unique jew­ellery, a Pikachu fig­urine, a plas­tic pizza or some en­tirely new ob­ject, and get it printed at the shop (10909 Yonge St., Unit 211, 289-637-1333).

Surely Up’s soup bases in­clude a soy milk base, tomato soup and a Szechuan chili pep­per base for the ad­ven­tur­ous among us (420 Hwy. 7 E., Unit 26, 905-763-1388).

F45 Train­ing is com­ing to Markham. The Aus­tralian train­ing pro­gram of­fers a team-based ap­proach that cov­ers dif­fer­ent types of prac­tices, from HIIT to weights to cir­cuit train­ing.
